When You Need a Hero — FINALS!

 

FINALS!

 

 

Congratulations to all our daily WHEN YOU NEED A HERO winners.  We hope you’ve had as much fun this week as all the Fillies have!

After four days of pouring over heroes–tough duty, I know–here are your four favorites:

 

#1 – Monday’s Hero – We call him “hunk with rope and horse”

From Karen: he must also be warm, tender, and a man who laughs.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

#2 – Tuesday’s Hero – Chris Young

Charlene says this about Hero #6: “I fashioned my hero in The Cowboy’s Pride coming in December from Harlequin Desire (who is an ex-country western star) after Chris Young. I truly love his music and his look. All this inspiration!”

 

 

 

 

 

 

#3 – Wednesday’s Hero – Eric

From Linda: My hero must have a broad chest and love animals. *sigh* I also like my hero to be gentle yet strong.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

#4 – Thursday’s Hero

 

Tanya’s  picks:  I got to spend some righteous time with a whole corral-full of real-life cowboys on our wagon train trip around the Tetons a summer ago. Meeting Garrett Snow, I was so enthralled with his hero/book cover potential that hubby advised me to tell him WHY I was taking his picture so often, to assure him I wasn’t a stalker. He was downright flattered. Indeedy, I can see him some day starring in a book of mine entitled Snow in Summer…sigh.

 

 

 

 

 

All right, readers. Time to vote again–and often.  Our GRAND PRIZE:  $25 Amazon Gift Card, compliments of Mary Connealy, and a Studs & Spurs 2012 Cowboy Calendar for some serious cowboy eye candy.

Voting will close at 10pm on Friday and Miss Felicia will choose one winner. Good luck!

Noelle Marchand Has Saddled Up

 

Hello Darlings,

We hope you won’t be too exhausted from our week-long hero party to help us welcome Miss Noelle Marchand.

Miss Noelle has saddled up and will ride into the Junction on Saturday.

The sweet lady wants to tell us about UNLAWFULLY WEDDED BRIDE. It’s her very first book to publish. And she’s chosen us to share in her excitement.

And Miss Noelle isn’t coming empty-handed either. She’s toting one copy to give away. Leave a comment to get your name in the Stetson.

Come Saturday we hope you’ll strap on your spurs and ride along with Miss Noelle and the rest of us.

You won’t be sorry.

When You Need a Hero….Day 4

 

Tanya’s  picks:  I got to spend some righteous time with a whole corral-full of real-life cowboys on our wagon train trip around the Tetons a summer ago. Meeting Garrett Snow, I was so enthralled with his hero/book cover potential that hubby advised me to tell him WHY I was taking his picture so often, to assure him I wasn’t a stalker. He was downright flattered. Indeedy, I can see him some day starring in a book of mine entitled Snow in Summer…sigh.

As for Sam Elliott, he’s the quintessential cowboy of every Western woman’s dreams. Y’all out there will have to agree. That voice of Rocky-Mountain gravel, that sly,  shy and sexy all at once smile peeking forth from the depths of that glorious mustache. ..Sigh.

Hero #13

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mary’s picks:   When I need a hero tall, dark and handsome are so easy that I have to fight it. I usually lose.

Here’s one where I let a blonde rule the day. I see this guy as Tom Linscott. My hero from Sharpshooter in Petticoats and one of my favorite heroes ever.

And the other hero is Lee Horseley. Remember him from Guns of Paradise? I loved that show. I remember Lee being quoted as saying he’d sworn to never do another TV show. And then they offered him a cowboy and he couldn’t say no.

He’s the perfect tall, dark and handsome cowboy.

When You Need a Hero . . . Day 3

When You Need a Hero . . . just look around you. Heroes come in all shapes and sizes and aren’t limited to skin color. A hero is as close as your own backyard or as far as your imagination takes you.

 

From Linda—–

My hero must have a broad chest and love animals. *sigh* I also like my hero to be gentle yet strong.

 

Hero # 9
Hero #10

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

From Phyliss————

When you need a real man . . . look no farther than #11. His name is Nathan and he was the cover model for two of our anthologies. Number 12 is a bit different and much, much harder. I had to look VERY carefully at each of them for a full day to decide which one I liked best. Well, that didn’t work, because there was no way to tell which was the hunkiest, so you get four for the price of one. Enjoy!
