What I love about the cowboys in these stories is that they work hard on the land, love their animals, were perpetually *about to lose the ranch for ‘insert reason here.’ It didn’t matter how many hours they worked, the fence was always broken, livestock escaped, and there was very often a rattlesnake incident. This usually occurred when the heroine decided to go for an ill-advised ride on a horse that bucks her and then makes it’s way home!
When I began writing my first ever cowboy story, The Heart Of Texas, I had the impoverished rancher, land rich, cash poor, always working, always exhausted, with a family that depended on him. Jack loves his property, his family, his horses, but there’s no way to save it all. Until millionaires oilman, Riley, blackmails him into marriage. Hate to love, opposites attract, an angry kiss, a little light bondage in a barn, murder, intrigue, who’s the daddy to the baby, horses, barn fires… it is a soap opera of a saga, and I loved writing every minute of it!
Texas is now completed at nine books and is currently in Kindle Unlimited. There is an angsty spin-off, Legacy, which is a further three books (KU, obviously).
