I‘ve always liked rodeo, but I truly fell in love with the sport when I moved to Cheyenne and experienced Cheyenne Frontier Days for the first time. It’s America’s largest outdoor rodeo, and as an important stop along the way to the National Finals in Vegas, it draws the best and the brightest cowboys in the world.
When I’m writing, I only have to close my eyes to feel as if I’m there. The faint hint of dust in the air and the musky scent of horses teases my senses, along with the smells of fair food: nacho cheese, broiling turkey legs, and sweet, sugary funnel cakes.
I can hear the crowd cheering for a high-point ride, and the patter of the announcer as he recounts the action. I can feel the stands rumbling beneath my feet, and see the cowboys lined up along the rail, brave, young and handsome in their hats and boots, while the fringe on their chaps flutters in the breeze.
For the release of How to Kiss a Cowboy, “Kathy’s Book Reviews and More” asked me to come up with five places where you could be alone with your sweetheart at a rodeo. I managed to meet the challenge, and I’d love to hear your ideas, too!
The site also gave Brady’s story a very nice review. I truly appreciate the work romance bloggers do, helping readers find the very best in romance and helping authors find their audience.
