Small Towns and Rodeos

Having recently returned home from a 5-week trip out west from Northwest Arkansas, across the plains states of Nebraska, Wyoming, Montana and up to Alaska and back thru Washington and Oregon, we went through many small quaint towns. But the one that stuck out in my mind was the one we spend three days in when we broke down in Pendleton, Oregon. Here was a small town that gets really big once a year when they sponsor the Pendleton Roundup. People come in droves for the a week of fun-filled events: parades, country dance, banquets, an Indian beauty Pageant and of course the main event…the rodeo. They have a huge stadium and they’ve revived the downtown area for the parades and cowboy show. There is even an underground tour of a former bordello.

We would never have stopped in Pendleton if not for the breakdown, but now that we have, I think it would be great to go back for the roundup some day. For the people in the small towns, events like these play a big part in their lives. It’s a time to get together for a little fun and family time.

In BOOTS AND LEATHER, the Ugly Stick Saloon is host to an annual Cowboy Ball during the local rodeo. Sometimes a little liquor and high spirits can lead to a bit more than these cowboys bargain on.



This biker chick longs for the open road…until two Kiowa cowboys shift her gears.

Eight months ago, Libby Jones parked her motorcycle in Temptation, Texas, to work at the Ugly Stick Saloon. Since then she’s grown to love the bar’s feeling of family, but now it’s time to hit the road. The longer she stays, the greater the risk her father’s investigators will track her down.

Yet she can’t resist taking the Gray Wolf twins up on their offer to go riding on their ranch. Even though getting involved should be the last thing on her mind.

Ever since Libby landed at the Ugly Stick, Mark and Luke Gray Wolf have been trying to capture her attention. She’s blown them off at every turn, until now. Their plan: expose her to the delights only twins can provide—and persuade her to stay for the long haul.

Libby’s longing for a life she can’t have makes her delay her departure just a heartbeat too long. Her hesitation gives her past time to walk through the saloon door, and all hell to break loose. Now the twins have a fight on their hands to teach her that being free doesn’t mean she can’t let go of her heart.
