    Cowboy Stories by Lisa Mondello

    Thank you all for stopping by for the launch of LOVE ME SOME COWBOY, 5 romances novels by 5 different authors that feature 5 sexy cowboys!!

    Most people have only met true cowboys in romance novels. I live in New England and except for when the rodeo or bull riders comes to town, we don’t see a whole lot of cowboys. I’ll admit, I love watching bull riders. So it’s no stretch that I would write about a bull rider in NOTHING BUT TROUBLE, book 1 of LOVE ME SOME COWBOY.

    But there are cowboys everywhere. You don’t have to live in Texas, Wyoming, Montana or Nevada in order to meet a cowboy. In fact, I remember my first encounter with a cowboy and I wasn’t even in any of those states. I was in Tucson, Arizona.

    Picture this. When I was 21 I was traveling on business and having drinks with my boss in her hotel room. We were sitting next to a floor to ceiling window looking at the beautiful red mountains at sunset. I love sunsets and have been teased my whole life because I’ll stop dead in my tracks to watch a beautiful sunset. But nothing I’ve ever seen compared to how beautiful this Tucson sunset was.

    Anyway, there had been a lot of cowboys in town during that visit that caught my eye and had me turning my head. But on this particular night I saw a pickup pull into the hotel parking lot and park on the far end near the road. My eyes were drawn to this handsome young man as he climbed out of his pickup and I couldn’t take my eyes off him.

    My boss kept saying, “He’s looking at you. Do you see him?” Of course I did. I couldn’t take my eyes off him. We watched each other the entire time he walked across the parking lot. When he reached the front door he paused, turned toward my window and tipped his hat at me.

    I don’t know his name. I never saw him again. But boy did this man leave a lasting impression on me all these years. It doesn’t get any better than that.

    So tell me, do you hang with cowboys on a regular basis or do you have a cowboy story to share? Share it here!

    Excerpt for Nothing But Trouble : Book 1 of Love Me Some Cowboy-

    His jaw tightened. Yes, there was something definitely wrong here. And money had nothing to do with it. It had everything to do with this beauty standing in front of him, who was clueless about what she was getting her pretty little hide into. “No,” he replied tersely.

    “Mr. Buxton, I need your help.”

    “Tourist season is in full swing. I’m sure you’ll have no trouble finding someone else.”

    He turned his back to her and began walking along the fence toward the barn, almost forgetting… Abruptly, he glanced up and saw the charred remains of the barn. The place where all his troubles had started just one year ago. It hadn’t taken but a second for him to hear her boots digging into the dusty gravel behind him, jarring him from his thoughts.

    “Then I’ll do it myself,” she said to his back.

    His whole body stiffened. He angled back to read her face, to see if she was just being a spoiled rotten rich kid, trying to get her way, or if she was actually serious. Seeing her head held high and her arms crossed in front of her, he realized she was dead serious.

    And dead she’d be if she stepped one boot into those mountains alone.

    “You’ll do no such thing.”

    Frustration flaring, he lifted his dusty hat and forced his fingers through the thick crop of black hair before returning the hat to his head.

    “You just don’t get it, do you? You’re not asking me to take you on a theme park ride where you’ll get to see the wonders of the world at a nice safe distance. This is God’s country. The creatures that live up there don’t know civilization, and you are no better than them. You could–probably will–get killed if you go out there alone.” His lips twitched, taking a good long appraising look at the woman in front of him. “You might even chip a nail on that pretty hand of yours.”
