Re: Baer Truth

If I win, I like to send this to noted author, S. Still, who is a vegetarian and lives off the land in the mountains of California.

I have only been out west once (several years ago) and visited Jackson Hole, WYOMING. Very cool western town. We never went to Cheyenne (ironically my Shih Tzu who was almost 16 yrs. old, I'd named Cheyenne--she passed away this year). I love western contemporary romance stories and yours sounds good. It's funny how the mind wanders to come up with all the ideas originating from naming cows and cow jokes while traveling on the road. I'm sure hot, sexy, Joe Baer wouldn't give up his thick, juicy steaks to follow in Abby Clark's vegetarian footsteps even if she's a sex magnet for him! Can't wait to read your new books, and I haven't heard of "Frontier Days" before. There are a lot of cattle raised in that area and also buffalo. Thanks for the contest!

This book sounds great Linda! I can't wait to read it. I Love cowboy romance books. Congrats.
Christine Arcidiacono 4:11pm October 3, 2011)

The book sounds great. Thanks for the giveaway.
Kara Lepard 5:21pm October 3, 2011)

I love romance, cowboys and especially books! Thanks for the chance to win. Congratulations!
Kimberley Coover 5:58pm October 3, 2011)

How fabulous to enjoy such an inspiring and entertaining vacation! Having lived a good part of my life in the western states, I well know how many stories can be mined in these parts and I applaud every one that is published! I hope to be favored with this opportunity to read a new one!
Carla Schuller 6:44pm October 3, 2011)

Loved the excerpt!
Mary C 7:22pm October 3, 2011)

Sounds like a fun read! I love finding new series and nothing beats a cowboy.
Good luck and happy writing!
Tracie Travis 7:38pm October 3, 2011)

I have never been to that part of the country, but I heard that it's beautiful!! Thank Goodness that you went there, or we wouldn't have a chance to read a book with such a terrific story line!! I can't wait to get my hands on it!! I love the cover to the book as well!! I think whoever did the artwork did such a great job on it. You don't always need couples snuggling on the cover to sell a book. This was very clever, and fits the story line well. I think you have gone to the top of my TBR list!! Congratulations on your book!!

I remember the day a frog landed on my windshield on the way out of the gas station. When I said to my daughter, "There's a frog on my windshield." It turned into a story. Truth is stranger than fiction.
Renee Brown 8:16pm October 3, 2011)

This sounds like a fun read.
Roseann Moss 8:25pm October 3, 2011)

sexy cowboys and bossy women... who can ask for more? :) Sounds like a terrific book!
May Pau 10:08pm October 3, 2011)

Looking forward to reading this. Thanks for the chance to win a copy.
Teresa Ward 10:10pm October 3, 2011)

I live in the west, and I love every minute of it. Seeing the mountains everyday inspires romantic stories in my mind. I wish I had the time to put them on paper, but I am fulfilling my dream of becoming a nurse instead. When I find time for other things besides text books, I reach for a romantic novel and a glass of wine. I look forward to reading your novel next. Thank you.
Jeri Daniel 10:11pm October 3, 2011)

I have often had that thought and chuckled to myself. I would love to find out your take on it.
Patti Paonessa 10:47pm October 3, 2011)

Ying and yang characters. Can't wait to read the entire series!
Joanne Hicks 10:54pm October 3, 2011)

it sounds great would love to win!!
Jennifer Beck 11:07pm October 3, 2011)

This is a new author for me and would love to win and read this book. I am always looking for new books and authors and this one looks great and would love to read these.
Chris Bails 11:23am October 4, 2011)

I have not read anything from this author yet... sounds like I need to change that...
Colleen Conklin 1:32pm October 4, 2011)

My first reaction: Snort!!

My second reaction: Well, yeah. It works for friends of mine, so why wouldn't it work for a rancher and his lady?

My third reaction: I can't wait to get this book!


Lynn, hoping to win, but will buy it otherwise!!
Lynn Rettig 2:54pm October 4, 2011)

Thank you all so much for taking the time to comment. It means
a lot to any author, particularly a newbie like me! The West
is just awesome! If you live there I envy you, if you don't
visit! While the Abby doesn't "convert" the cowboys
completely, they do learn a bit about tofu!! - Linda
Linda McMaken 3:46pm October 4, 2011)

loved the first chapter and enjoyed exploring your website and blog! What an interesting mix of things you do! looking forward to reading more.
Beth Fuller 5:13pm October 4, 2011)

WOW!! Talk about opposites attracting. Yes please!!
Mary Preston 6:16pm October 4, 2011)

I like ranches and cowboys/cowgirls where it's more of a Dude or Dudette ranch. There just seems to be plenty of wide open spaces and the hay which goes with farming and I love when cityfolk become countrified.
Alyson Widen 3:48pm October 5, 2011)

Sounds like a conflict that goes way beyond cowboy boots and 6 inch heels. Sounds like a lot of fun. Can't wait to get this one downloaded.
Christina Harrison 9:38pm October 5, 2011)

Wow, I remember when I was little I wanted to grow up to be a cowboy. Then I got to be a teenager and read all of my Dads Lois Lamoure books. Love a good cowboy story and yours sounds like great fun.
