When You Need a Hero — 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!
