Every cowboy shares certain characteristics that make him a cowboy, but each has a personality all their own. This is what makes creating cowboy heroes in books so much fun. In my new release, Dallas is a bareback bronc rider who is battling his way back to the top of the rankings after a traumatic personal setback.
He’s also finding his way back to trust and to love again. When he runs into Kira, the woman he’d been wanting since they’d met at Christmas, he doesn’t know how much trouble his heart is in for.
Dark and brooding are great terms to describe Dallas, and Kira loves those qualities in him. She describes herself as a loudmouth redhead, but she admits she sometimes finds Dallas a bit too quiet.
I loved creating Dallas’s character. Digging in to his history to find out why he’s the way he is had me falling for the cowboy a little myself. The strong, silent type can make any woman want to snuggle in for a long, hot night.
What’s your perfect cowboy type? Loud and rugged? A smooth Casanova? Funny and the life of the party? Or do you like them dark and deep?
BOOK BLURB: A fortuitous spin of a Las Vegas roulette wheel links New York accountant Kira Morrow and rodeo bareback rider Dallas Burns. The heat that has flared between them since their first meeting threatens to burn out of control as they share sinful nights and hot days. As their mutual distrust resurfaces, the flames quickly die. Only when Kira walks out of his life forever does Dallas realize he needs to stop letting past hurts prevent him from opening his heart to love. Is it too late to repair the damage he’s done and reclaim the heart of the woman he’s fallen for?
EXCERPT: Dallas knelt in front of Kira, looking up at her as he lapped at her mound. “I can tell you want to grab my hair and pull me into your pussy.”
She fisted her hands in his hair. “Would it do any good?” She tugged lightly. “You seem to want to torture me instead of please me.”
“I am a mean bastard, for teasing you, but when you climax higher than you ever have before, you’ll thank me.” He rubbed his face in her soft, trimmed hair and glanced up at her.
“You talk a good fuck, but I need you to prove it.”
His hips slammed forward at the nasty word coming out of her sweet mouth. A lady, an angel, but with a little bit of devil poking its way out just for him.
Grabbing her wrist, he pulled her off balance as he stood, and caught her up in his arms. “Comin’ right up, ma’am.”
She kissed his shoulder. “Gotta get you naked, first.”
Her sweet gesture made his belly flutter. He walked to the far side of the bed, furthest from the window. He didn’t want anyone to see her, but she was so beautiful in the sunlight, he hated to close the curtains. He laid her gently on the mattress.
Kira’s hair fanned around her head. Against the red comforter, her pale skin glowed with life. She ran her hands on the satin then writhed her body over it. “Slippery. This will be fun.”
He unbuttoned his jeans, unzipped, and tugged them off, along with his socks.
“Tightie whities? Really?” She stared at where his cock tented the briefs.
“Gotta keep everything in control.” It struck him that his underwear was a metaphor for his life.
“Time to lose control, Dallas.” She propped up on her elbows and gestured toward his groin. “And time to lose those drawers.” She licked her lips, deliberately teasing him. “Take it off, cowboy, and let loose of your epic restraint.”
Was he that easy to read? That was what he’d become over the years, and even more so since Layna’s betrayal. “How’s this for no restraint?” He turned his back to her. The sun pouring in the window warmed his back and highlighted him like he was on stage. His shadow loomed large on the wall in front of him. He lifted his arms and flexed.
“Oh yes, big guy.” Her voice purred low and sexy. “Give me something to dream about.”
He grabbed the sides of his underwear and flexed again, concentrating on his back muscles.
“Damn, cowboy! You should be doing this on stage.”
“Ha.” He could loosen up a bit in front of her. In public? It’d scare the shit out of him. “This is a private show, for one…” He leered at her over his shoulder. “…lucky lady.”
“Oh baby, do it.”
He slowly peeled his drawers down his ass, letting them catch under it, showcasing it for her.
“Sweet ass. Shake it for me.”
“Shake it?” He shrugged. “I wouldn’t know how to begin to do that.”
She laughed. “Wiggle it then? Please?”
“For you, sweetheart, I’ll try.” He jerked his hips side to side, then found a circular rhythm, one that he’d like to use with his cock deep inside Kira’s hot pussy. His head leaked a drop of pre-cum.
“Cowboy, I’m going to be thinking of this tonight when the girls and I are at the strip club. Nobody will compare to you.”
Time to stop fucking around and get down to it. He pulled off his underwear, turned, and flashed her a full hard-on as he flexed his muscles.
Her gaze zoomed to his stiff cock. The drop of natural lube glistened in the sun. She sat up then crawled across the bed to him, her eyes feral, her tongue tracing her lips.
Heat bloomed at the base of his spine and every male part around it started tingling. He stepped closer to the bed.
With her face an inch from the tip of his cock, she stopped. “You’re so big, Dallas. Thick and long.” She looked up at him. “I want this in my mouth. In my pussy. Between my tits. And in my ass.”
Flares shot up his spine and popped off in his head. He grabbed her hair and tipped her head back. “Taste me.”
Her lips curved into a wicked smile as she shifted closer and took his head into her mouth, licking his slit.
His ass tightened, his balls contracted, and with one more flick of her tongue, he’d be gone. He pulled back. “Sweetheart, you don’t know how close I am, how desperate you make me.” Dallas eased her back onto the comforter. “But this cowboy’s a gentleman, and it’s ‘ladies first’.”
She wiggled and shivered. “I like the sound of that.” She lay on the bed, a temptation he couldn’t resist.
He lay perpendicular to her, his head at her hip. His palm made circles on her thigh. “All I can think of is these gorgeous legs wrapped around my head.”
“Mmmm.” She arched her back. “Please.”
He liked it when she begged. Rolling her onto her side away from him, he kissed her tattoo, licked the seam of her ass, and lifted her leg. Nuzzling his way between her legs, he lowered her leg.
Her thighs pressed on each side of his head, cutting off all sense of hearing. He grasped her legs, holding her there. He licked the tender flesh of her inner thighs, the taste of her skin melding with the juices of her arousal.
“Sweet, like honey.” He ran his tongue along the soft, peachy lips of her pussy. “I could stay here forever.”
