So, since its post Mothers Day, and it will be June before I wish to reveal the next project I have going (kickass hero, Beau Bradley, btw) I thought it might be nice to give a shout out to the phenomenal “cowgirls” –my mustang women–who quite often inspire me in surprising ways!
Aimee-losing her twin sister, she chooses to live her sisters dream of teaching in an area where teachers are needed. Her determination to connect to isolated Wyatt Kinnison in spite of seemingly insurmountable odds, shows once more my mantra when writing romance, that love will find a way.
Liberty Bell-a product of a verbally abusive father and boyfriend, Liberty musters the courage to seek out the step-brothers her mother had abandoned years before. Her perseverance, her flexibility, and courage to fight, possibly die for those she loves helps open Rein’s eyes and see her differently than he had at first. Again-love will find a way.
Angelique-harboring a secret, Angelique hopes that love is enough to change the man who has fallen into a dangerous lifestyle. When it comes to the endangerment of her child, its a wake up call to seek help, return home, and pray her family and friends will understand. It is the rekindling of the relationship with her first love (Dalton) that forces her to come clean of the secret she’s carried for years and hope that in doing so, they can move forward. A decision to be courageous, to tell the truth, almost costs her her life, but love, once more prevails–and both Dalton and Angelique come through with a new gratitude about family and each other.
Sally-the consummate caretaker, Sally is a teacher who has devoted her life to her teaching and a daughter who cared for a father with a long-time debilitating disease. Realizing she wants a family of her own, thus far the dating pool has not given her her Prince Charming.. When funds prove to be a deciding factor, she strikes a bargain with a man whose life is anything but normal, but who has a heart as big as the state if Texas. Through time, and experience, she sees and soothes the wounds that go deeper than physical with Clay , while at the same time realizing that what she needed most was in front of her all along. As is most cases, love always finds a way to take off the blinders and see what is important in our lives.
I have many other “mustang” women in my life (family, friends, readers, authors,) who inspire me daily–I call them my phenomenal women.
