Read an Excerpt
From the foreword:
For years, I lived in the Texas Hill Country, my ranch-style house was one of many look-alikes in a rural subdivision, with my back yard butted up against a working ranch. After I woke to the insistent mooing of a cow at my bedroom window and her moist breaths fogging the glass, I put up a chain link fence, which gave me a unique vantage. My view was panoramic grassy fields, clumps of wildflowers, rolling hills, a tall rugged escarpment in the distancecowboys riding horses and motorized mules as they herded cattle.
Those cowboys came in all sizes and shapes, but wore “the uniform” wellchambray shirts year-round, occasionally torso-hugging T-shirts, if they didn’t expect to be in the sun too long, Wranglersdo cowboys wear anything else?and scuffed, broken-in boots. And then there was the hat. Those cowboys I watched from my back yard might have worn the same brand of pale, straw cowboy hat, but the brims were shaped according to their individual preferencessome draped low over deep-set eyes, some brims curled tight at the sides to tell you the man wearing it was a little wild and likely playful. If I’d known what I was going to be when I “grew up,” I would have learned the language of those hats.
What I did learn was that their muscled frames weren’t honed in any gymcowboys work damn hard. And they take pride in what they area living, American icon. Honest, protective and on the side of justice, they walk the walk.
My favorite memories are of strolling down the sidewalk in the small nearby town and passing a tall, lean cowboy coming the other way. Without fail, he’d touch his hat and give me a nod. More often than not, he’d say, “Howdy, ma’am.” As corny as that scenario might be, that greeting never failed to make me blush and smile. Back when I wasn’t free to act on my attraction, I had my little fantasies. Maybe cowboys made me what I am.
Seems plenty of writers love a sexy cowboy, too. Narrowing down the choices from the deluge of sexy stories I received was tough. In the end, I selected the stories that turned me on and made me wish I was the girl enjoying her first cowboy. You’ll meet rodeo cowboys, Outback jackaroos, cowboys from all over the Western statesall of them turning up the heat on the one girl they can’t let go. Enjoy the slow burn.
