A real life cowboy became a make believe hero

Leave me a comment and win a digital or audio copy of this book.

Christmas is a ,long way off but I was thinking about my characters and this popped into my mind.

People are always asking me where I get my ideas for characters. I tell them the world is so full of interesting people I have a hard time keeping up with them all. I have a football player inspired by a waiter, a heroine inspired by a cop, and so it goes. And while it isn’t Christmas, I want to tel you how I found a Christmas story hero.

HE CAME UPON A MIDNIGHT CLEAR is a story I wrote for Decadent :Publishing’s 1Night Stand series. It’s about a cowboy who must marry by midnight New Year’s Eve to retain the ranch he inherited and a woman who for the first time in her life has reinvented herself. I had an idea in my mind what I wanted him to look like but I couldn’t make the image come clear in my mind.

I was still living in Texas at the time, in a town called Boerne. Bear Moon Bakery is one of the town’s real treasures. They have little cafe tables and chairs outside for those who want fresh air. This particular day I was sitting outside waiting for someone, reading my book, drinking my latte and eating my scone. I have a habit of swinging my foot when I sit like that and suddenly bam! I connected with someone’s leg. I looked up and nearly swallowed my tongue. There he was, Mister Hunky Sexy Cowboy.

He stood a little over six feet, clad in jeans, well worn cowboy boots, a light ranch jacket and of course his Stetson. His square-jawed face featured high cheekbones and the most incredible eyes. He did not have me arrested when I asked if I could take his picture, thank heavens. And he became Cody, in HE CAME UPON A MIDNIGHT CLEAR.Cody

I couldn’t publish his picture because I promised him privacy but this is the closest I could come. Isn’t he hot, hot, hot????? If only he hadn’t been wearing his shirt the day we met.

He Came Upon a Midnight Clear

Cody Alvarez needed to find a wife by Christmas or he would lose the ranch his uncle left to him. Libby Morris just needed, for once in her life, to feel desired. Sensual. Appealing. Especially after an intense reshaping at a high-end spa. Invited to Christmas Week at the Castillo Lodge in Alaska by Madame Eve of 1Night Stand, Cody and Libby were not given the names of the partners chosen for them. As they were forced to wait until they learned who their one-night stands were, they discovered an incredible spark of chemistry and a connection stronger than either had experienced before. Would spending a very erotic night together ruin their arrangements or give them another option?
