Riding Rodeo Release Day!

Riding Rodeo releases today!

I love it when a story practically writes itself. I had the opening scene written for this story, but no real idea where to take it. Then I saw the Submission Call for Cowboy Kink and everything just fell into place.

I've been around cowboys all my life, and while they know how to doff their hats, call all women "ma'am" and open doors, there's an earthy, rugged, yumminess that just makes knees weak. I've never figured out if it's the tight jeans, cowboy hat, or merely the confidence which comes through in every step, every slight movement of their bodies.

In the end, does it really matter? Cowboys are sexy.

The last person Amanda Goodson expected to walk into her bakery was Sean Cassidy, the bareback bronc rider who rode her hard one night and left without a good-bye the next day. Since then, she'd sworn off one-night stands and cowboys, but one look at the man she called Rodeo leaves her hankering for another ride. 

A nasty injury ended Sean's career and left him with nothing but time to contemplate past sins, especially the most damning one...walking out on Amanda, the one woman he couldn't forget. Eager to right the biggest mistake of his life, he finds Amanda--and learns he has competition. Never one to back down from a challenge, he offers to fulfill her darkest fantasy--taking two cowboys for a ride. 

When the dust settles, will Sean's plan to win Amanda's trust backfire or will she risk her heart for one more shot at Riding Rodeo?

I'll be giving away a copy to one lucky person who comments by noon Monday CST. If you just can't wait though, click here to buy! :)

Woo hoo! Well, personally I hope Amanda doesn't make it TOO easy for Sean to get back in her life--I hope she makes him suffer a little. Heh heh--I'm evil.

Sounds like a great story!

I forgot to comment, sounds like a fabulous book, Emma. I'm off to buy, I could always use a little more "cowboy kink" in my life :)

Happy Release Day. And I've had a few stories that have written themselves. It's a really good feeling when that happens.

Congrats my friend.

Well, Marie, my fellow Cowboy Kink series author, I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed Saddle Up.

Thanks, W. Lynn! If only my fingers could keep up with the ideas!
