COME VISIT COWBOY CHARM!
Love Those Cowboys!
I fell in love at age ten when I watched my first black and white movie in the Rose Theater in a small West Texas town. It was 1950, and Roy Rogers was King of the Cowboys, and Gene Autry was The Singing Cowboy, and there was Lash LaRue, and The Lone Ranger, and several more. The cowgirls or the female in the movie could have just stayed off the screen, for all I cared. Only the cowboys interested me.
The very first romance novel I read was about a cowboy, as told in Janet Dailey’s This Calder Range. I still remember Chase Benteen Calder taking his beautiful Lorna away from her comfortable home to forge a new life in wild Wyoming. The book was old when I found it. I’m a rather new convert to reading romance, and of course, writing it, too.
My reading material for years had been science fiction, the classics, old westerns, and women’s fiction. But there was something thrilling about the frontier--the excitement, the hopes and dreams of countless men and women who reached far beyond their horizons, searching for an elusive entity, something that called to the heart and soul, their own Manifest Destiny.
I knew I was hooked on Western Romance when I began to search for every one of Janet Dailey’s novels that continued the Calder saga. Our library had only about half, so I haunted every used bookstore between Texas and Michigan. Probably, since I loved Westerns—Louis L’Amour, Max Brand, and Zane Grey—the romance of the west also intrigued me.
You bet! I became an addict.
Most of my own stories tell of cowboys on ranches. A few have a gunslinger or a lawman as the hero.
In the novella, Addie and the Gunslinger, Jude Morgan lands in jail in a far-flung western Texas town, even though he'd given up his outlaw days years before. A beautiful woman visits the jail and claims Jude is her long-lost husband, and she demands he come home where he belongs.
In the novella, Kat and the U.S. Marshal, Marshal Diego Montoya comes to San Antonio, tracking a killer and swindler, and finds the woman he'd dreamed about from a year ago.
My newest release is a contemporary romance, a novella, set in the Panhandle of Texas-Truck Stop Paradise
Blurb for Truck Stop Paradise-A novellaLeigh Anne McClintock has spent her adult life shielding her addictive sister Crissy. But when Crissy abandons a horse, Leigh Anne borrows a pick-up and trailer and takes the horse from North Texas to the Panhandle ranch owned by a childhood friend, Chad Rogers.
Chad has wondered for years why his best friend Leigh Anne betrayed him and her sister Crissy on the night of their ten-year high school reunion. When Leigh Anne arrives, he willingly takes in the animal, and he cautiously tries to make peace with Leigh Anne. They feel the old attraction, but neither can let go of the past.
When Crissy makes a disturbing appearance, Chad and Leigh Anne finally learn to put themselves first...and find the love that had been there all along.
