Nate Shawcross is perfectly content to spend his days training wild horses. So when a beautiful greenhorn unexpectedly shows up for a seminar from the famous “Horse Whisperer” of Wyoming, all he wants to do is send her packing. Graduate student Charlie Banks came to the ranch to learn about interspecies communication, but when she meets the ruggedly handsome cowboy, she starts to fantasize about another connection entirely. Nate needs to stay focused if he’s going to save his ranch from foreclosure, but he can’t help being distracted by the brainy and breathtakingly sexy Charlie. Could it be that after all this time he’s finally found the one woman who can tame his wild heart?

Yes, a cowboy is my kind of man. And I'd rather be shown than told how a man feels.
(Leni Kaye 2:40pm September 7, 2010)
I guess we love cowboys because we know they had a code in the old west and we assume they still do, trust them, believe in them and love them.
(Diane Sadler 3:06pm September 7, 2010)
Would love to find a cowboy.:) I'm happy to find a new author that writes about cowboys.

Thanks for the comments, everyone! I'm glad to hear there are so many cowboy fans out there...and I don't mean football!

Cowboys are a breed of their own.
They may not be outwardly tender
or romantic but it is there in the
little things they do. I love my

Nice write-up, Joanne. To answer your questions: "Is a cowboy your type of man?" You'd better believe it! I really go for honest, unaffected, sincere, down-to-earth types who live close to the elements and must bring out their best qualities as a matter of course. There's something appealing about this sort of mindset and lifestyle that's hard (at least for me) to put into words, but it sure is enjoyable to read about.
As for your second question: "Would you rather have a man tell you how he feels—or show you?"---well, you know what we all hear in Creative Writing 101: "Show, don't tell". Not only does it mean more, but also it's a better gauge of character. Usually it's harder for a person to act phony than it is to speak falsely, and still be believed.
Keep up the good work!
(Mary Anne Landers 9:39pm September 7, 2010)
Actions speak louder than words even for cowboys. Thanks for the contest.
(Sheila True 10:05pm September 7, 2010)
Sheila, you're so right! And in Nate's case, it's all about action. Thanks for commenting!
