She's hardly a cowgirl...

Cat Crendall left a successful advertising job in New York to teach art workshops in the wild west.  The Boyd Ranch is hardly her dream destination, but if the outing's a success, the company will send her to more exotic locations.


But once a cowboy...

Mack Boyd was in the middle of the best bronc-riding season of his life when his mother asked for help with an artists' retreat at the ranch.  Mack might be able to ride a wild stallion to a standstill but he can't say no to his family.

Cat and Mack are complete opposites...but when the ranch is threatened financially, can they set aside their differences and work together?

Re: Cowboy Tough

Anyone can work together if it means something good is going to come out
in the end and something wonderful happens
(Ava Curtis 11:09am February 28, 2013)

Sounds like my kind of book, I'd love to read it.
Wilma Frana 11:14am February 28, 2013)

Definitely a book I would enjoy... thanks for sharing your post with us!
Colleen Conklin 11:40am February 28, 2013)

Hi, Joanne! You are a new author for me. Your book sounds very good, and I loved your blog.
Cathy Phillips 11:41am February 28, 2013)

Joanne, sounds like you write a book that I'd like to read.
Mary Hay 11:47am February 28, 2013)

Sounds like a good book. Congrats.
Vicki Hancock 11:56am February 28, 2013)

Luckily I have never had to be as tough as the examples in your blog but I hope that if it ever happened I would be able to measure up. This sounds like a great book.
Kathleen Yohanna 1:19pm February 28, 2013)

I love your definition of "cowboy tough" - I think a lot of those values live today in families, to find them combined with integrity is a treasure not to ever be let go of.
Carla Carlson 2:29pm February 28, 2013)

The book sounds great. I love cowboys.
Pam Howell 2:34pm February 28, 2013)

Thanks, everyone, for stopping by, and thanks to Fresh Fiction for letting me talk about my favorite subject: cowboys! Kathleen, you're right - we never know if we'll measure up until something happens, but I think most of us would be surprised at just how "tough" we are deep down inside.
Joanne Kennedy 3:55pm February 28, 2013)

I love everything about your book, the plot, the setting, the characters, the character about each character, and where I believe the plot will be heading. This is the perfect type of book to knock of "Winters' Chill." I believe that a Cowboy has one of the hardest jobs out there today, and my heart goes out to them. Please tell your Husband that I said "Thank you for your service."
Peggy Roberson 3:55pm February 28, 2013)

ob2xlooks good
Kent Cook 4:25pm February 28, 2013)

love cowboy books!! Something about a man and a horse...
Michelle Schafer 4:56pm February 28, 2013)

Bobby Mote really went through a lot of pain toughing it out for his buddies (that's really being "cowboy tough"). Enjoy reading about cowboys and would love reading your book which sounds great!
Rich Cook 5:31pm February 28, 2013)

Sounds like a great book :)
Aimee Robison 6:24pm February 28, 2013)

My all-time favorite genre to read are Cowboy books. I just got two of your books to read from our library. I also found one at one of our thrift stores. Anything cowboy with rodeos, horses, ranches, etc., I'm there! Can't wait to read these and would love to win this latest book, Cowboy Tough so-o very much!!
Linda Luinstra 6:40pm February 28, 2013)

Yes, being a cowgirl and farm girl from Kansas. I would
really love to win COWBOY TOUGH. What a handsome cowboy on
the cover. A real hunk.... and what lady could resist falling
for a handsome man like that. Thanks for the great contest

Cheryl McEwen 8:53pm February 28, 2013)

Cowboy Tough sounds like a fantastic read!
Elizabeth Hyatt 9:04pm February 28, 2013)

Cowboys make me stand at attention and whistle, but mine sounds more like a tea kettle than a real whistle.
Alyson Widen 9:44pm February 28, 2013)

How tough is "Cowboy Tough"? There are no manuals or books that you can read in order to learn to be "Cowboy Tough". "Cowboy Tough" can't be bought or ordered from Amazon. A person either has "IT" or not!
Joanne Hicks 10:27pm February 28, 2013)

love a cowboy!!
Pamela Dolen 11:12pm February 28, 2013)

Cowboy Tough is tough. After all, cowboys have to braved the element during the cattle run, sleep out in the open, rain or shine. They have to do back-breaking works. Yes, they do need to be tough.
Kai Wong 11:18pm February 28, 2013)

sounds like i book i would really enjoy...thanks for the blog
Kimberly Hoefs 11:57pm February 28, 2013)

Cowboy tough sounds a lot like Aussie True Grit and the ANZAC spirit!
Chris Coulson 12:31pm March 1, 2013)

Linda Hall 12:34pm March 1, 2013)

Laura Gullickson 1:13am March 1, 2013)

another interesting read to help get through the winter.
Lisa Fitzgibbons 6:05am March 1, 2013)

A broken pelvis? how could he walk? I know a man who had a colt rear up and fall over on him, crushing him against the concrete yard. He broke his pelvis in three places. He was in intensive care for two weeks.
Sorry, but that guy is not tough, he's stupid.
Clare O'Beara 7:08am March 1, 2013)

Rosemary Foley 8:29am March 1, 2013)
