Hi, I’m Kacy Cross, here with a fun way to tell you about THE COWBOY’S SWEET REDEMPTION. It’s a cute, sometimes funny, sometimes heart-breaking story about a dog trainer named Delilah who has never trained a dog and a grumpy ex-soldier cowboy who goes by the unlikely name of Zero, which is also exactly how many cows he owns (at first). They need each other but don’t know it yet. Fortunately, the dogs are pretty smart and spend a lot of time helping our hero and heroine get together.
I’ve been tasked with making an acrostic with the letters from the title to tease you some about this amazing story.
T is for The Flying Pig, the name of Zero’s ranch.
H is for Hunter, the name of Zero’s fatherless nephew, who needs a dog to be his friend.
E is for eating, which something the Renshaw family does together, an oddity to Delilah, but she loves it.
C is for cows. Three, to be exact, which is how many Zero buys + one steer. The Stetson will now coming handy.
O is for o’clock, a measurement of time and a specific allergy of Delilah’s.
W is for water, as in the lake on the ranch property where the dogs love to swim and may feature in that unfortunate incident where Delilah forgot to let go of the leash…
B is for barn, where the dog school happens.
O is for objection—what Zero does every time Delilah gets closer than he planned.
Y is for y’all, which is cowboy lingo for those of you reading this right now.
S is for Sheridan, Zero’s widowed sister, who wouldn’t be single if it wasn’t for him.
S is for sleeping, that thing Zero does no more of now that Delilah’s room is right across the hall.
W is for wage, the goal of Delilah’s attempt to train Zero’s dogs.
E is for early, Zero’s preferred method of arrival.
E is for earth, the length of which Zero would travel to get Delilah back (once he realizes what he’s lost).
T is for Tag, as in Tag Ryland, Zero’s best friend and inherited ranch hand.
R is for radiant, the way Zero makes Delilah feel.
E is for employer and Zero is painfully aware he’s Delilah’s, which is why he can’t act on the sizzle between them.
D is for dogs. Lots of dogs. None of whom listen to Zero or he wouldn’t be in this situation.
E is for earthquake which may or may not be what happens when Zero kisses Delilah. He might have to try it again to make sure.
M is for mistake, the one Zero made when he hired Delilah. Or is it?
P is for pain that Delilah is trying to erase from the eyes of Zero, Sheridan, and Hunter.
T is for thesis, which Delilah is trying to write so she can finally earn her PhD except she’d rather be spending time with Zero.
I is for idyllic, a word that describes the ranch Delilah wasn’t supposed to fall in love with.
O is for oil, as in oil and water, exactly how well Zero and Delilah mix when it comes to their approach to life.
N is for nickname and yes, Zero is one. His real name? He’s not telling.
In order to finish her doctorate, grad student Delilah Kersey needs a job. Any job. So when she overhears a gorgeous rancher describing a job opportunity, she’s all in—if she can convince him she’s a real dog trainer. Of course, no one prepared Delilah for a chaotic household with four unruly dogs and a sexy new boss whose bedroom is right next door to hers.
Military vet Zero Renshaw’s return to civilian and family ranch life hasn’t been easy. He needs to transform four horrible dogs—who can only be described as a menace—into obedient cattle herders. But with his family still reeling from a shattering loss, Zero will do anything to make things better…even hiring an unpredictable dog trainer who’s more temptation than he can resist.
Now Delilah is transforming every aspect of Zero’s tightly-regimented life. She even seems to be healing his family, including his small, broken-hearted nephew. But Zero has no room for mistakes…even if he’s falling for the best one he’s ever made.

I write romance novels starring swoon-worthy heroes that you can share with your daughter, the ladies at church and your grandmother without fear because my books never contain bad language, violence or adult content. I live in Texas where I’ve seen bobcats and beavers near my house, but sadly not one cowboy. I’m raising two mini-ninjas alongside the love of my life who cooks while I write, which is my definition of a true hero.
Come for the romance, stay for the happily ever after. My books will make you laugh, cry and swoon–cross my heart.
