There are few things I love more than cowboys. Montana might be one of them. How lucky that I got to combine the two in Tempt Me, Cowboy!

I was born in Texas (though raised far, far away) and I like to think that gives me a genetic predisposition toward the love of cowboys, drawls, laconic men, and perfectly-fitted, much-washed jeans. In truth, I think it was more the steady diet of excellent cowboy romances I lived on through the 80s and 90s.

But either way, when it came time to write our first series of novellas in the Copper Mountain Rodeo series — a part of the broader Montana Born series that centers around the fictional town of Marietta, Montana that CJ Carmichael, Lilian Darcy, Jane Porter and I created — it was a no-brainer to make my hero a Texan. Jasper Flint might not be a cowboy in the traditional sense, but he’s spent his life wrangling his way through the oil business and now that he’s left that behind, he knows exactly what he wants. Especially when he sets his sights on local Marietta girl, Chelsea Collier. 

I write a lot of romances for Harlequin Presents under my pseudonym Caitlin Crews, and I’m no stranger to alpha male heroes.  They’re my favorite! But it was great fun to step away from the international locations and high fantasy elements to write Tempt Me, Cowboy. There’s something special about a small western town ringed by mountains, far away from a lot of things and yet smack in the middle of a place known as Paradise Valley. And I loved writing about a man like Jasper, confronted and confounded by a small town girl who knows who she is, too. 

We can’t all move to Montana and we can’t all live surrounded by cowboys, more’s the pity. Writing this novella was the best I could do! And I really can’t wait for the chance to return to Marietta with all the amazing stories coming this year and next from our Montana Born authors. I’ll see you there!
