Do Cowboys Exist Anymore?

Status

clint-eastwoodIn one of my social media groups someone asked, “Do cowboys even exist anymore?

I found myself smiling and almost without thinking answered, “Watch out for those cowboys! Seriously… They are deadly.

It’s very likely I was thinking of Cord Archer.

I grew up in the US. The word “cowboy” stirs something spiritual in me.

Because of my country’s history? Possibly.

More likely because the word cowboy is dichotomous, and describes a kind of chivalrous, devil-may-care-but-honor your woman, free-thinking, no boundaries attitude that any business consultant will tell you is quite frankly the foundation of every new, out-of-the-box endeavor.

cradleoflies.final.lacey (2)We love cowboys for their bad-boy-loves-the-good-girl-who-loves-to-be-bad ways. We love the twinkle in their eye, the cut of their jeans, the sprint in their step, the chink of their spurs, and the feel and smell of a man whose arms and legs know how to tame a mustang… and a woman. And who knows down deep that she’ll do a little taming, herself 🙂

Cord Archer is exactly this kind of cowboy.

And while he could have just about any girl, the only girl he wants is Mattie Rayne. The problem?

Cord’s daddy is the craziest, most dangerous psychopath serial-killer awaiting execution on death row in the Montana State prison system… and the world just won’t let Cord forget there’s such a thing as the psycho gene… which means one day Cord may wake up to find he’s just like his daddy.

Can the honorable cowboy he is allow Mattie to take that risk?

Meanwhile, Cord is being stalked by a sociopath who wants Mattie Rayne, dead.

The only thing deadlier than a psychopath is the random unpredictability of a sociopath. God help the man who has to contend with both.

CRADLE OF LIES available now on Amazon or through the publisher, Red Sage

So, do cowboys even exist anymore? I can only speak from my personal experience… and that is writing two cowboy stories caused me to absolutely fall in love with the cowboy as an IDEAL… and in my heart, I believe the true spirit of a cowboy still exits.

Maybe, just maybe there’s a cowboy in your future? black hat cowboy

If you’re looking for a cowboy, oh, how I hope you find him. And, if you need a little inspiration, read CRADLE OF LIES. It might scare your pants off, but isn’t that what cowboys are for? 🙂

CRADLE OF LIES releases today!

Status

Top of the morning to you! Today is release day for CRADLE OF LIES, my newest romantic suspense.

cradleoflies.final.lacey (2)Back cover:

Forced to spend the first sixteen years of his life witnessing some of the most epic murders ever committed, what kind of a life can Cord hope for?

When Cord Archer first meets Mattie Rayne, her incandescent smile heats him like the summer sun, bleaching him clean. Nothing else matters except making her his. Before he can do that, his conscience compels him to explain why he entered an institution at age sixteen and spent five years learning to read, write and function in mainstream society.

Upon learning that Cord is the son of a notorious psychopathic serial-killer, Mattie realizes what a monumental effort it took for him to survive, much less make it all the way back from crazy. Knowing this only makes her love him more.

Just when it would seem Cord is finally about to know love, two phenomenally staggering events irrevocably change the course of his life. First, a sociopath becomes fixated on him. Next, his daddy escapes from prison with the sole intent of tracking him down.

Now, anyone in Cord’s life is at risk because the only thing deadlier than a psychopath is the random unpredictability of a sociopath. God help the man who has to contend with both.

My editor recently interviewed Cord. See what he has to say: Cord Archer Interview

CRADLE OF LIES is available in e-book through the publisher, Red Sage. In a few days, it will also be available through Amazon.com and your favorite online bookseller.

New Releases Update

Status

In response to several inquiries (and thanks for asking!) here’s a brief update about my upcoming new releases:

The Wild Rose Press, the publisher publishing my contemporary romance, NAKED HOPE, has a new TV commercial. It’s a kick. View it here.

My contemporary cowboy romantic suspense, CRADLE OF LIES has been contracted by Red Sage Publishing.

Also, I’m working with an editor on my historical paranormal, WILD THE WIND to incorporate changes that will result in a contract. This editor is amazing and I’m so grateful she sees the story’s potential!

Blessings to all editors!!!

So, for an author who is relatively new (me), this is out-of-this-world exciting, because it means all my books that are ready for publication have found homes.

I’d better get cracking on my two WIPs, Half A World Away and Beyond Time!

Hope your Monday is amazing!

XOXO
