HER CHRISTMAS COWBOY by Adele Downs #99cents #Christmas #shortreads @Adele_Downs

Ready or not, the holidays are here! HER CHRISTMAS COWBOY is the standalone sequel to KISSING HER COWBOY a Lunchbox Romance meant to be read in about an hour. I hope you’ll pick up a copy for your eReader or tablet to get you into the holiday mood. Only .99! Available wherever ebooks are sold.

Join Trey and Daisy for their first Christmas together!

Excerpt:

“You’re quiet all of a sudden,” Trey said.

Except for the crickets, katydids, footfalls and sounds of horse’s hooves, the country night was still. She must have given him a vibe about the decision weighing on her mind, because Trey was usually comfortable with silence. He freed his arm from hers, rubbed a hand down her spine, and made little circles with his fingertips on the small of her back. The intimate gesture raised goose bumps over her skin, yet warmed her from the inside.

“I’ve been thinking,” she said. “There’s something I want to talk to you about.”

The moon had risen, and beneath its glow and the light of a billion stars, Trey’s brow furrowed. “Sounds serious.”

Daisy nodded. “Something I want to run by you.”

Trey pressed his hand more tightly to her back. “Then I want to hear about it. Let’s take care of Big Blue and eat supper. We can relax and talk and then decorate the tree. As it happens, I have something I want to discuss with you too.”

Kissing Her Cowboy_322X454

Excerpt:

“Oh, Lord.” Treymont Woods kicked up dust on his boots as he sauntered from the stables to the woman who just had to be his new riding student. Her flaming red hair swooshed from one side of her shoulders to the other as she watched his stallion, Big Blue, canter inside the corral. Her hands, knuckles white, clutched the fence and every muscle in her tall, slim figure looked tight. Before he could get to her, she pivoted toward the parking area, moving her feet like she was fixin’ to run.

“Hey there!” He called out as a distraction. By the time Trey reached the woman’s side, he could hear her breathing like she’d raced a Texas mile. Before he could introduce himself, she turned to him with wide green eyes and shouted, “He’s huge!” Pink splotches bloomed under the freckles on her pale skin.

She licked her bottom lip and shook her head. “No, no, no, no….” and started backing away. “I can’t do this. Keep my deposit. I’ll figure something else out.”

Trey lifted his hands in mock surrender. “Okay. No problem. You don’t have to ride if you don’t want to.”  Her jeans looked too tight for riding, anyway, and that white blouse would be smudged inside five minutes. Hadn’t the woman ever been to a ranch before?

She stopped moving then and frowned at him, causing twin lines to form above her nose. Her adorable nose, now that he’d gotten a decent look. In fact, everything about the woman seemed downright appealing, despite her reaction to Big Blue. Who in their right mind wouldn’t love the greatest horse that ever lived, on sight?

KISSING HER COWBOY by Adele Downs – Donating Royalties to #AmericanRedCross #HurricaneRelief

Hurricanes Harvey and Irma kept me riveted to the TV news as they pummeled Texas, the Florida peninsula, the Florida Keys, and the Caribbean. If you are a resident of the affected areas, my heart goes out to you. My family and I watched with horror and in tears as our neighbors further south lost their homes, their neighborhoods, and possibly their livelihoods. I have many friends in Texas and Florida, and even more readers there. I kept wishing there was something I could do to help my fellow citizens as the devastation unfolded.

Sending a donation to the American Red Cross seemed like the obvious choice, but I wanted to do more. Something personal. That’s when I remembered that one of my most popular books KISSING HER COWBOY is set in Houston, Texas, the epicenter of Hurricane Harvey’s destruction.

I will donate 100% of my royalties for KISSING HER COWBOY to the American Red Cross when you purchase the book between now and October 31. Since the story costs only .99 and my portion of the sale is much smaller than a dollar, I will match every royalty I receive from my publisher in my quarterly check with a personal donation. You get the book and the proceeds go to charity. It’s a win-win for everyone.

KISSING HER COWBOY

“I’ve always been a sucker for a good cowboy story–and this short story had me hooked in the first few pages! There are so many small touches in this story that warmed my heart (sweet tea…sweet lips…). I fell in love with Trey easily, and learning about both his and Daisy’s background stories…gave this book incredible depth that is typically very rare in a story this short. Overall, fantastic and sweet love story!” 5 Stars! ~ Amazon Community Reviewer

I Met Sheriff Longmire!

More accurately, I met Sheriff Walt Longmire’s creator.

My local independent bookstore hosted Craig Johnson, author of the Longmire Mystery series, during his recent tour to promote his new release. I’ve never missed an episode of Longmire on A&E and wanted to meet the man whose creative genius brought Sheriff Walt Longmire, Deputies Victoria Moretti and Branch Connolly, and Walt’s lifelong friend Henry Standing Bear to life. The characters seem so real they’re like neighbors you’d want at your backyard beer bash. If you haven’t discovered Longmire, the modern-day cowboy detective of Absaroca County, Wyoming, do yourself a favor and add the series to your reading and TV lists.

About 100 fans gathered at Chester County Books to hear Craig Johnson discuss Longmire and learn about his role on the television show. I found it both interesting and reassuring that Johnson maintains some creative control of each episode in the series. I’ve met other authors whose books have been turned into hugely successful TV shows, and they said they hardly recognized their characters or stories. Johnson reads every script line by line before production and has a voice in the story outcome. I’m convinced that’s why the show has remained true to his characters.

Here are some fun facts Johnson mentioned during the book chat:

  • Craig Johnson and his wife Judy live in Ucross, Wyoming; population 25. (Yes, you read that right. Twenty-five.)
  • Although episodes of Longmire have been based on Walt Longmire mystery novels, the endings have been changed so that readers and TV viewers can enjoy a crossover experience. Readers of the series will discover that murder suspects in the books are not the same suspects in the TV shows. This approach keeps the stories fresh and eliminates spoilers.
  • Longmire is A&E’s most successful television series to date.
  • Craig Johnson received a Master’s Degree from Temple University. That connection is the reason he travels to Pennsylvania during book tours. (Yay, for us!) His Philadelphia roots are also behind the creation of his character Vic Moretti, a Philly native and former member of the Philadelphia police force.
  • Walt Longmire is surrounded by women he depends upon. His dispatcher Ruby keeps his office running smoothly. Daughter Cady rules his heart. The memory of his murdered wife, Martha, fuels his motivation. His deputy Vic Moretti is his alter-ego. Vic is tough, urban, and rough edged; while Walt is tough, country, and big-hearted. Johnson said (paraphrase), “If you were speeding down a highway in Absaroca County, you’d want Walt, not Vic, to give you a ticket.” (As an aside, I should mention that recent episodes hinted at an attraction between Walt and Vic, but neither character acted on that attraction. When thousands of Longmire Facebook fans were asked if Walt and Vic should get together, they responded with a resounding NO!)
  • Johnson said he hasn’t decided yet if he’ll write scripts for Longmire.

Let’s hope Craig Johnson writes lots more books, and that Longmire lasts for years, with compelling stories about the characters from Absaroca County.

Nothing says love to an author like a great review, especially for a new release. We authors work hard on our stories and hope our readers will enjoy them.

When Examiner.com Women’s Fiction editor Kristin Contino included my new release KISSING HER COWBOY in her “Romantic Reads for Valentine’s Day” column and rated the story 5 Stars on Amazon, she gave me the best Valentine’s Day gift an author could hope for. Good reviews let an author know she’s done her job and point readers in the direction of a book they might enjoy.

 KISSING HER COWBOY by Adele Downs

A Lunchbox Romance Short Story

Only .99 from Boroughs Publishing!

A cowboy with a fractured back and a cop with a broken spirit heal on a Texas ranch with the help of a stallion named Big Blue.

Summary:

Treymont Woods is forced to take light duty work around Breezy Meadows Ranch after a rodeo accident. While Trey’s body heals, he offers riding lessons to Houston locals on the greatest horse that ever lived, Big Blue. When police officer Daisy Phillips arrives for her first session, sparks fly. But her invisible wounds run deep, making it hard for her to form connections. KISSING HER COWBOY is the story of two broken people who heal on the road to their happily ever after.

Excerpt:

“Oh, Lord.” Treymont Woods kicked up dust on his boots as he sauntered from the stables to the woman who just had to be his new riding student. Her flaming red hair swooshed from one side of her shoulders to the other as she watched his stallion, Big Blue, canter inside the corral. Her hands, knuckles white, clutched the fence and every muscle in her tall, slim figure looked tight. Before he could get to her, she pivoted toward the parking area, moving her feet like she was fixin’ to run.

“Hey there!” He called out as a distraction. By the time Trey reached the woman’s side, he could hear her breathing like she’d raced a Texas mile. Before he could introduce himself, she turned to him with wide green eyes and shouted, “He’s huge!” Pink splotches bloomed under the freckles on her pale skin.

She licked her bottom lip and shook her head. “No, no, no, no….” and started backing away. “I can’t do this. Keep my deposit. I’ll figure something else out.”

Trey lifted his hands in mock surrender. “Okay. No problem. You don’t have to ride if you don’t want to.”  Her jeans looked too tight for riding, anyway, and that white blouse would be smudged inside five minutes. Hadn’t the woman ever been to a ranch before?

She stopped moving then and frowned at him, causing twin lines to form above her nose. Her adorable nose, now that he’d gotten a decent look. In fact, everything about the woman seemed downright appealing, despite her reaction to Big Blue. Who in their right mind wouldn’t love the greatest horse that ever lived, on sight?
