Announcing “The Real Thing” Now Available for Pre-Order!


It started as a short story for the anthology Riding Double, and it was one of my first professional sales. I was and am very proud of that story. In many ways it began my Universe. A character from that story went on to co-star in my first novel, All Alone in a Sea of Romance.

So I was pretty sad to hear that Riding Double was going out of print. But then I was talking to Elizabeth North, and we agreed for me to do a little clean up on the story and add a few thousand words, and now that story is going to be available as a stand alone! It won’t go out of print! Ye-Haw!

Here’s the blurb:

Bryan Mills has fantasized about cowboys all his life. Real cowboys, that is. He even dresses in what his roommate calls “cowboy drag” when he visits his favorite bar, in the hope of attracting the attentions of a genuine cowboy. But all he usually finds are posers and guys his own age.

Then one night, to his surprise, Curtis Hansen buys him a beer, and Bryan has no doubt this is the real thing. Curtis is a rugged, gorgeous man who is every bit a cowboy. He even owns his own ranch. What follows is about the most amazing night of Bryan’s young life.

But can they move beyond a night of incredible sex when Bryan admits to Curtis that the only horse he’s ever ridden was a birthday party pony? And that he’s nothing but a poser himself? Maybe, just maybe, Curtis can find the real cowboy inside Bryan, and they can ride off into the sunset together!

I think you’ll like the story! Check it out! I’ve even included the buy links below. Aren’t I thoughtful?

Until next time!
