Ladies, I hope you’re ready to saddle up for some more fun!
Charlene Sands discovered Timothy Olyphant (Hero #5) from the hit FX series Justified, where he plays US Deputy Marshal Raylan Givens. Some of you might also recognize him from his role in Deadwood. As far as “Hero with an Edge” goes, Timothy’s got it all and he’s a source of inspiration for Charlene’s upcoming Harlequin western!
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!”
Cheryl St. John used a different criteria while selecting her heroes.
Cheryl writes, “I didn’t choose my heroes based on their pretty faces or sex appeal. When push comes to shove, I want a hero who would take a bullet for me, rescue me from outlaws or perhaps pay for a china tea set before he goes out to face certain death in the name of justice.”
“Robert Duvall plays one of of my favorite cowboy heroes in Lonesome Dove, Broken Trail and Open Range.
Kevin Costner would make a fine upstandin’ husband for any pretty spinster.”
