Texas Cowboy Blog Tour Featuring Carolyn Brown and Linda Broday

They are tough, hard working, and have the manners their mama gave them. Is it no wonder that readers are in love with the ultimate hero — cowboys. Today we’ve got Western romance authors Carolyn Brown and Linda Broday to explain exactly what makes a cowboy hero ... by finishing this sentence: “A cowboy’s never fully dressed until he puts on his....”

Linda Broday: ...gun belt and Colt. Danger always rides rancher Cooper Thorne’s trail. The oldest of his blood brothers, is the hero in "Texas Mail Order Bride," Cooper is prepared to defend himself and the people he loves at all times. He’s seen what happens to men who let down their guard and he’s not about to let that happen to him. The West is a dangerous place full of peril at every turn. Men die who don’t respect the lawless land. Though he doesn’t seek violence, he’s accepted that it often comes. So does trouble of other kinds. As a rancher, he’s had to kill rattlesnakes, coyotes and bobcats that threaten his herd and often an animal that breaks its leg. So he has many uses for the gun. It’s a necessary part of a rancher’s life and he’s accepted that.

Carolyn Brown: ...charm. Plain and simple. Sawyer’s mama, in "The Trouble with Texas Cowboys," taught him well when she told him that his handsome looks would take him far in life. That his swagger would draw the women’s eye for a second look. And that his pretty eyes could and probably would get him in trouble more than once before he settled down. But that pure old charm would open doors that nothing else ever could.

  1. Wonderful group of authors & books, Would enjoy reading any of these :)
    dkstevensne AT outlook DOtCOm

    1. John Wayne in the Cowboys was my fav texan...

    2. Hi Deanna! Thanks for coming by. I love to meet readers. I'm a John Wayne fan myself. I think my favorite movie was Rooster Cogburn with Kathryn Hepburn playing opposite him. Those two were great together. Such magic.

      I hope you enjoy Carolyn's and my stories.

    3. Hey, Deanna! I loved that movie with John Wayne, too. But my favorite might be Quigley Down Under. It was such a hoot to see Crazy Cora!

  2. I'm thrilled to be today with Carolyn Brown and talking about cowboys! No better subject in my opinion. Here in the Texas Panhandle it's common to see them but I always get a thrill. They're just such a special breed of men and Cooper Thorne certainly fits in that category. I enjoyed writing his and Delta's love story so much and was sad when I got to the end.

    Wishing everyone a great day and good Texas sunshine!

  3. Me, too, Linda! It's an honor to get to sit in the rocking chair beside you today and talk about cowboys. I mean, what better topic to discuss on a cold winter day than a sexy cowboy with a sexy swagger and a bright smile?

  4. Looking forward to reading both of these books! I love a good cowboy story! ;)
