NEVER FALL IN LOVE WITH A COWBOY
Jessa Mae Love is done with relationships. No matter how tempting he might be, she cannot--will not--fall for a man like Lance Cortez. The outrageously handsome cowboy is practically a living legend in Colorado, as famous for riding bulls as he is for breaking hearts. What would a big-time rodeo star like him see in a small-town veterinarian who wears glasses, rescues animals, and cries when watching rom-coms? Turns out, plenty.
Raising bulls, riding the circuit, and looking after his ailing father--Lance never stands still for long. Yet Jessa catches his attention, and the more she tries to resist him, the more he wants her. When she agrees to move to the ranch to keep an eye on Lance's dad, Jessa tells him they have to keep it professional: no flirting, no sweet talk, and definitely no kissing. But with Jessa now living under his roof, that's easier said than done . . .

Richardson (Something like Love) launches a contemporary series with the earnest sincerity, heart, and Colorado setting that are her trademarks. Jessa Mae Love wants the thing her mother always eschewed: a committed romantic relationship. But when her boyfriend breaks up with her by text message, she starts reconsidering her priorities. Determined to give up on men and dedicate herself to building up the animal shelter her father founded, she calls on her cohort of feisty and funny friends for a makeover and support for her new resolution. And it all goes hilariously awry when Lance Cortez, a rodeo champion determined to get one last world title before retiring, barges into her living room and her life. Though Lance is still struggling with betrayals in his past, the two begin a tentative, oft-interrupted flirtation. Their story is sensitive, charmingly funny, satisfyingly spicy, and dedicated to ensuring both protagonists grow to earn their lasting love. This will satisfy Richardson’s fans while welcoming new readers to a sweeping land of mountains, cowboys, and romance. Agent: Suzie Townsend, New Leaf Literary & Media. (Feb.)

Meet the Author

Sara Richardson grew up chasing adventure in Colorado's rugged mountains. She's climbed to the top of a 14,000 foot peak at midnight, swum through Class IV rapids, completed her wilderness first-aid certification, and spent seven days at a time tromping through the wilderness with a thirty-pound backpack strapped to her shoulders.

Eventually Sara did the responsible thing and got an education in writing and journalism. After a brief stint in the corporate writing world, she stopped ignoring the voices in her head and started writing fiction. Now she uses her experience as a mountain adventure guide to write stories that incorporate adventure with romance. Still indulging her adventurous spirit, Sara lives and plays in Colorado with her saint of a husband and two young sons.
