I lived 20 years in Texas, 5 years in Montana and traveled all over the west. I’ve seen a lot of the country cowboys work in and respect the work they do because they spend long hard days in blistering heat, frigid cold and sloppy wet conditions to get the work done. I’ve built fences, strung barbed wire and been bucked off a horse, but it wasn’t my job per se. I did it because I loved the outdoors and the fresh country air. Having herded cows, ridden horses and milked a goat, I’ve rounded up experiences for my cowboys and cowgirls to have in my stories. And it’s fun because I can sit in my warm/cool office surrounded by comfort while dreaming about the love and danger my cowboys are getting into. I have my Diet Dr. Pepper beside me and my box of Milk Bone minis. NO, I don’t eat the minis, they’re for my muses, my malti-poo and yorkie. I know, they’re not ranch dogs, but they keep me company.
So while you’re reading BOOTS AND LACE from the UGLY STICK SALOON series (coming March 26th), you can imagine the writer with her standard drink and box of milk bones. Hehe
She wants no strings…but he wants it all.
After her philandering husband left her, Lacey Lambert found sanctuary, and a better class of friends, at the Ugly Stick Saloon. Where she learned that the best revenge—against her ex, and the “friends” who kicked her out of the Temptation Garden Club—is to live life to the fullest.
Now that her best friend is moving out of her apartment building, she’s feeling a little lonely. And more than ready for a little commitment-free sex with the hot new downstairs tenant.
Freshly divorced, Nick McBride isn’t looking for another failed relationship. But when the luscious brunette offers no-strings sex—with him and his brother—he can’t come up with a good reason to refuse.
After he gets over the shock that she likes it loud, long, and in front of an open window, he finds himself wanting more time with her. Maybe even on a permanent basis. But it’ll take every ounce of his cowboy charms to convince her to let him sweep her off her feet.
