Comin’ Up Cowboys


The winner of my backlist book is Kim!

The winner of Regina’s backlist book is Elece!

Congrats and thanks to everyone for sharing in our Yee Haws! 🙂

This week at Ellora’s Cave, everything is comin’ up cowboys. I have a new release today in the Lawless line called Inflamed. It’s exciting enough getting a release date, but imagine my delight when I realized I’d be sharing the day with fellow Cougar Challenge pal, Regina Carlysle — one of my favorite authors and pretty much the nicest woman on the planet. This gal can write HAWT cowboy stories!

Today, we thought we’d celebrate our cowboy releases together by playing a little game. Here’s the deal: I’m going to pose a question about cowboys. In order to be entered into a drawing for winner’s choice from my backlist, you need to pop over to Regina’s blog to leave the answer. While you’re there, why not look around? She has some gorgeous covers and amazing excerpts.

THEN…check out the cowboy question Regina has posted, come back here and answer it to be entered into a contest to win your choice from her backlist. Sound like fun? Two chances to win! The contest will run through Friday night. Check back Saturday to see the winners’ names.

OKAY–my question is this: Who is your favorite sexy cowboy? Remember–DON’T post your answer here. Post it over on Regina’s blog. Check out her question and post the answer to that question here.

Stuck in a rut in every way possible, Keri’s first step in a bid for change is moving back to the Texas home she left years ago. The second step? Spicing up her sex life with the crazy-hot cowboys she left behind. Too responsible (and smart) to touch her way back when, Max and Shaw filled Keri’s hottest teen dreams. Now she’s all grown up, and more than ready to make up for lost time.

Max and Shaw were always fond of Keri, but the stunning woman strutting back into their lives is a far cry from the serious, studious teen they remember. She wants to take a walk on the racy side—with both of them—and the cowboys are only too happy to oblige. As they suspected, the sex is explosive, though Max and Shaw aren’t sure Keri can really handle everything they have to give.

Nor do they know if she can handle the sexy secret they’ve yet to divulge.

Return to Delight

Harley June Baker left Delight thinking never to return, but when circumstances draw her back to this tiny town and straight into Cooper’s strong arms, she knows she’s in deep trouble. The man she’d loved and left behind is now one sexy devil-in-denim and hotter than a Texas summer night. With his every wicked touch throwing her senses into overdrive, how could any sane woman resist?

Cooper Dobbs is a man on a mission. He let Harley get away once, but never again. Knowing it’s time to burn up some sheets with the delectable woman, Cooper plies her with a raw, savage passion that threatens to incinerate them both. It’s gonna take plenty of panty-drenching sex and a fair amount of sweet-talkin’ to make Harley his, but Cooper reckons he’s up to the challenge.

    Mari, YOU are DANGEROUS! I saw your email today about Ithis new release and have just bought Inflamed. I couldn’t resist this one.


  2. By Molly Daniels on

    Geez…the sexiest thing about a cowboy? I think it’s the way he talks and acts. The protective nature. It’s those steady eyes which say ‘You’re MY woman and I’ll do everything in my power to love, cherish, and keep you safe.’

    Does that make any sense???

  3. By Mai Williams on

    Sexiest thing about a cowboy is his swagger and confidence. Oh yeah and the way they tip their hat and say darlin’…oh yeah love them 🙂

  4. By Cathy Mack on

    What’s sexy to me is their connection to the land, and that extra bit of loyalty and honor that they seem to have an abundance of. And of course I love that sexy saunter of a cowboy in jeans.

  5. By Marika Weber on

    Sexiest thing is their loyalty to their family, land, and me. They are honorable and give me a cowboy in Wranglers and a hat and I melt……..

  6. By Terri on

    The sexiest….I guess their manners and the way they act.

  7. By Gabrielle on

    Tough call! For me I think it’s the way cowboys talk, you know with that wonderful drawl they sometimes have? (Sigh)

    I also love how respectful they can be, if a cowboy were to show up at my door right now and call me Ma’am in that southern drawl? I’d probably melt into a little puddle at his feet!

  8. By Darcy on

    Regina’s question: What is the downright sexiest thing about a cowboy?

    They live the life they way they want it, in the environments that are challenging. They are both “rough” and “soft” when the “moment” requires it. It’s not an easy life in any stretch of the imagination. Hard sweaty work, and uncompromising. Rugged and real, and down to earth. That is just plain sexy. Oh yeah…*S* I love it.

    Thanks for the chance to win this book…*S*

    Mari, I left a post on Regina’s blog but it was for an older post. She hasn’t posted anything March 25.

    Would you like me to repost it here instead?


  10. By Regina Carlysle on

    Thanks everyone for the responses here. Sandy, we had a minor glitch this morning but the link to my blog should work fine now. I did get a comment on an older post. Was that you? LOL. I’ve got it I think. Hugs and sorry for the problem Sandy. Consider yourself entered in the contest.

    Oh and one of MY favorite things about a sexy cowboy? The way he might tip his Stetson or hold out a big rough hand and say….Come’ ere, darlin’.

  11. By Venus on

    I think the sexiest thing about a cowboy is his work ethic and his loyalty. When you look at a cowboy they give you the tingle of a badboy but they are keepers!!

    Can’t wait to read Inflamed 🙂


  12. By Beth C. on

    Sexiest thing about a cowboy-the way he can look at a woman he wants, a tilt of the head to send that smoldering look her way.
    Being in chaps and shirtless doesn’t hurt either. 🙂

  13. By Elece on

    The sexiest thing about a cowboy? They are who they are! They don’t try to be something or someone they’re not. They are confident and comfortable in their own skin. Nothin’ sexier than a man who knows who he is and damn well knows what he wants!

  14. By Debra Thomas on

    Sexiest thing?
    Loyalty is number one…following that..hat, boots, chaps and of course…the look. You know the look they get in their eyes..the self confidence. They know what they want and they will get it.


  15. By Kim on

    Sexiest thing about a cowboy is tough – chaps (with no pants), ropes for well, you know, tying things (or people) up, the hat b/c it’s just damn sexy when there’s nothing else on them – ok, i’ll stop here!
    Congrats on the release! off to shop!

  16. By Sandie on

    The sexiest thing about a cowboy is their strength of spirit and will power.

    Their physical strength is nice too. They are very well muscled out and usually very dominant when needed. Most of the time they are quite polie too. I find it hard to limit the number of great things about cowboys.


  17. By Regina Carlysle on

    I’m with you, Sandie. They DO have lots of muscle but it comes mainly from hard, physical labor, not hours in the gym. They are unfailingly polite and true gentlemen. Of course they know damn good and well their southern mamas would kick their butts if they WEREN”T gentlemen. LOL. I raised a little ‘southern gentleman’ myself and he knew at an early age to stand when a lady walked into the room, he knew how to pull out a chair or open a door. Those things are important.

  18. By Ashlyn Chase on

    The downright sexiest thing about a cowboy are his hips…how they sway (in a good way) when he walks after riding his horse all day.

    No, no. That’s not right. I meant to say his drawl is the sexiest thing! Especially when he uses the word “darlin’.”

    Oh, wait…no. His tanned, hard body…

    Or…Oh foget it. Everythign about cowboys is just too damn sexy!

  19. By Lisa b on

    I’d have to say the way he fills out his jeans right? lol Ok there is that and cowboy confidence and family loyalty to with it.

    The sexiest thing about a cowboy for me is the ruggedness and confidence, not to mention they all look hot in jeans *grins*

  21. By Regina Carlysle on

    Ooooh. Filling out the worn jeans is a reeeeeally good answer. That coupled with that sexy, confident stride is so damn sexy.

  22. By Susan R on

    The sexiest thing about a cowboy – his swagger! 🙂 And a cute butt in worn jeans doesn;t hurt either! LOL

  23. By Jacki on

    Sexiest thing about a cowboy is how he fills out his jeans, and his well worn boots.

  24. By Fedora on

    Ah… cowboys 🙂 The sexiest thing is that they are tough guys who are good with their hands (and sometimes rope ;))

    Congrats, Mari and Regina! Hot stuff!

  25. By Louise Lucchetti on

    What is the downright sexiest thing about a cowboy?
    His cowboy hat, bare back, and low slung jeans!!!

  26. By Darcy on

    I had to repost 2 times on Reginas blog but it didn’t take until today. Good thing I saved my answer.
