Jodi Linton | Are y'all ready to saddle a cowboy?


Howdy Folks,

Let's kick this cowboy hunting party off with a bang! I just can't believe I finally get to share sassy, pistol-packing deputy sheriff Laney Briggs and tight-jeans wearing Texas Ranger Gunner Wilson with y'all. It has been a long road, but well worth it. I mean, I would be crazy to say I didn't enjoy writing about sexy, tight-assed jean wearing cowboys. And to throw in a sassy, pistol-packing deputy into the bunch...well yeah, I'm in total bliss.

Okay, I know why y'all are really here... did I hear someone say, "COWBOYS!" I'm sorry, I can't hear ya? Tell me. How many of you enjoy a good-timing cowboy or two? I know I do. Maybe it's the narrow-hip swagger. Nah? It has to be the drawl. Although that deep, southern twang can be deadly to quite a few ladies' panties. Just the thought of that smooth, velvety voice whispering in your ear can make you go weak at the knees. Good grief, we got off track real fast. Fan me please. Okay, some of y'all might've heard about a new cowboy strutting into town, and yeah the rumors are true...he's lethal. Ready to kick up your boots, grab a cold one, and learn a thing or two about this bad-ass Texas Ranger?

Give me a moment. No pressure please. I'm thinking. What am I willing to spill about Texas Ranger Gunner Wilson? Hmmm....Well, he looks damn fine in a pair of Wranglers. He holds a soft spot for a sassy mouth deputy, which almost always puts him in hot water. And did I mention he has a bone to pick with a few old friends.

As you cowboy-crazy girls already know, the rodeo doesn't get going until the cowboys show up, and that's exactly the type of rough and reckless ride Deputy Laney Briggs and the whole Pistol Rock gang are in for when this bad-boy steps into town. I'm just over the moon now that I get to share this with all of y'all.

Now, since we're on the topic of sexy, bad- boy cowboys...who's your all-time favorite? Two commenteres giving up hot cowboys will win an e-book of PRETTY RECKLESS.


Welcome to Pistol Rock, Texas where everyone knows secrets last about as long as the sporadic west Texas rain showers.

Laney Briggs has long been considered reckless, but she's turned herself around—she's respectably engaged and she's become a Pistol Rock deputy sheriff. Everything's fine until a dead body turns up and her ex, Texas Ranger Gunner Wilson, decides to stick his boots into the town's first murder case.

Laney will be damned if she lets Gunner trample all over her turf and her chance at a quiet, contented life. His seemingly endless ability to undermine her resolve and her libido was only outdone by her constant urge to butt heads with him. But when the bodies start to pile up, Laney has to ask the lethal bad boy for a hand—and a truce in exchange for his help.

Having an ex-boyfriend as an ally might not be the best idea, but Laney has always been pretty reckless...

Cowboys from the old west such as Wyatt Earp I admire
(Sharon Berger 3:07pm March 24, 2014)

For me, rodeo cowboys have always been so much fun to watch. I grew up in Texas, so rodeos were a weekly event. Watching a cowboy try and stay on a bronching horse (or even worse a bronching bull) is exciting!
(Sandy Fielder 3:55pm March 24, 2014)

Will your book, "Pretty Reckless" come out in print? I don't read e-books as I don't own an e-reader. I would love to read your book if and when it does. I love all cowboy books and enjoy authors Carolyn Brown, Jodi Thomas, and many others. My favorite sexy, bad-boy cowboy in movies was Clint Eastwood. In books, I'll take 'em anyway they come from any author writing about 'em!
(Linda Luinstra 6:50pm March 24, 2014)

Awww. Don't make me pick a favorite! There are quite a few
literary cowboys I love as well as movie/TV ones! (Let's not
even mention the real life ones. ;-) )
(Glenda Martillotti 11:32pm March 24, 2014)

Always in favor of a good cowboy story. :-)

I love books with cowboys in them, all kinds.
(Wilma Frana 11:37am March 25, 2014)

I have no favorites. Cowboys always make it more exciting.
(Anna Speed 11:38am March 25, 2014)

There is no way you can pick just one, once you start reading about them!! It's like picking a horse out of a pack of wild ones, riding in a pack on the range!! They're all wonderful creatures, and each one is special in their own way!! I'm sure that Gunner is going to be special, too!
(Peggy Roberson 11:40am March 25, 2014)

A good Bad-Boy cowboy is always in season. If he can ride,
charm, and kiss then that is even better.
(Tina Ullrich 12:17pm March 25, 2014)
