In my last post, we talked about my love for cowboys…today lets talk about a cowboy’s sweetheart.
Not all heroines in westerns are cowgirls; some are not even ‘ladies’ by the standards of their era. (Though most are saints by today’s standards LOL!) However all are feisty, determined women. Whether true cowgirls or not these ladies are a class of their own for it takes a special woman to tame the wilder side of those rough and rowdy ‘boys.
That said I’d like to introduce you to my cowboys’ sweethearts.
Lexie Morgan is by-far-no-means a cowgirl. In her own words she can “ski; water and slopes, and surf; waves and the ‘Net, skate; blades and rollers, and play all sorts of athletic games,” but she can’t ride. In fact, she is so NOT a cowgirl that she thinks rodeo cowboys have “rocks for brains and a death wish for a soul.” So, how does she end up falling in love with an All Around Cowboy and champion bull rider? Find out in Tempered Joy!
The daughter of a wealthy rancher, Amber Harris enjoys riding and performing at the annual charity rodeo which has hosted by her family’s ranch for generations. However, she’s much more than a cowgirl. Liked by most and envied by many, she treats everyone with respect and never holds herself above those whom society would deem beneath her. Loving and pure she’s generous to a fault and she’s the perfect woman to win the heart of Stanley Morrison, a newcomer with big dreams and no money. But is he strong enough to overcome his own fears and her father’s objections as well as scale the walls of social standing she’s ignored all of her life? You can read all about this tumultuous romance in Tempered Fire.
Not even in her wildest dreams is Katrina Simmons a cowgirl. In fact, all of her dreams have been shattered from the abuse she’s suffered at the hands of one she’s vowed to love till death do us part. Though raised on a ranch, her hero isn’t a true cowboy either. He’s a doctor who has given up on love, sold his ranch to his best friend, and moved from Bandera, TX to Lafayette, Louisiana. Tempered Dreams, book 2 in my series of contemporary romances might not be classified as a ‘western’ due to the circumstances and setting but it is an important story in the lives of these characters whose love crosses the lines of age and strengthens the bonds of friendship.
Tamera Collins on the other hand, is more than a mere cowgirl, she’s a large animal veterinarian who specializes in treating horses. Tamera travels to Bandera, Texas after the death of her parents and fiancé’s betrayal to honor a commitment and work at the Rockin’ H for the summer. The last thing she expects is to fall in love with an arrogant jerk cowboy even if he is as handsome as the devil and the grandson and sole heir to the magnificent ranch! But when the two make peace with their pasts and open up to the feelings blossoming between them, they discover a secret to true love. A truth that will bind them together for life…. only when hearts are tempered, minds are opened and wills are softened can man discern the will of God for his life. Follow these two who clash from the moment they meet into wedded bliss in Tempered Hearts!
