Yvonne Lindsay: For Love of a Cowboy

What happens when a superstitious Kiwi hippie chick locks horns with a taciturn Montana cowboy? Sparks fly, that’s what!

As a reader, I’d thoroughly enjoyed the previous Montana Born books—the rodeo series and the brides series—and it wasn’t hard to imagine characters living in the town of Marietta. When I was asked to contribute to a new series I leaped at the opportunity and I loved working on my novella, FOR LOVE OF A COWBOY, from the moment the story idea popped in my head and I especially enjoyed having the opportunity to work with the great team at Tule Publishing as well as the other talented Montana Born Books authors. Set in the fictional Montana town of Marietta, FOR LOVE OFA COWBOY hinges around the big Marietta Fair and is one of six fabulous stories being sold in Montana Born Book’s summer fair series.


Life is simple for Booth Lange–work hard, save hard, stay out of trouble–until Willow Phillips arrives in Marietta and turns his entire world upside down. The superstitious hippie is everything he can’t stand—transient, careless, and trouble with a capital T. He wants her out of town before she can upset more than his equilibrium, and yet, he can’t seem to stay away or keep his hands off her.

Willow, retracing her late mother’s journey through Montana twenty-seven years ago, has one goal. To meet Willow’s father. Maybe then she can face the life-altering decision that awaits her. But meeting her father proves more elusive than she anticipated, and just why is Booth Lange so determined to drive her out of town?

To celebrate the release of this novella, I’m giving away a Tule Publishing Tote bag with some Tule goodies, including a couple of books from my Harlequin Desire backlist, to one lucky commenter.  So tell me, do you love a cowboy?

A typical Piscean, USA Today! best-selling author, Yvonne Lindsay, has always preferred the stories in her head to the real world. It makes perfect sense that she was born and bred in Middle Earth, um, New Zealand. Yvonne has published over twenty-five titles with Harlequin and is a three-time Romance Writers of Australia R*BY nominee and a finalist in the Romance Writers of New Zealand Koru Award of Excellence. A former law office manager she now spends her days crafting the stories of her heart and in her spare time she can be found with her nose firmly in a book, reliving the power of love in all walks of life, or knitting socks and daydreaming.

Cowboys rule and are my favorite men. Principled, hard working, high integrity and kind. I love them and always will.

I was always in love with cowboys ever since the first Westerns. They exuded strength, values that are important, strength of character and simply are to be admired and are heroes.

Is the sky blue (most of the time)? Of COURSE I love cowboys (and sports players, and lawyers, and tradesmen, and CEOs, and sheikhs ...)! And I also love Jane Porter. Well done on joining up with Tule Publishing! I think that's GREAT!

erin said...

Hecks yay!!! Cowboys are the epitome of a "real man" to me :) Congrats on the newest release!

Yvonne Lindsay said...

I think it was Little Joe for me...ah, the good old days of cowboys on TV.

Yvonne Lindsay said...

All of those traits are exactly why cowboys are so appealing, definitely!

Yvonne Lindsay said...

:-D there's just that special something about them, isn't there?

Yvonne Lindsay said...

I love those traits in a cowboy/hero, too!

Yvonne Lindsay said...

I totally agree with you. Values make a man, yes?

Yvonne Lindsay said...

Hi Laney! LOL, as a writer its reassuring to see your list of "loves" when it comes to heroes.

Yvonne Lindsay said...

Thanks, Erin. Yep, there's always something very special about a cowboy!

Cindy Hamilton said...

Really liked this book, I want me a cowboy but what do I do with my husband? HAHA

Leni said...

Yes. I love reading stories with heroes that are cowboys. Reading about some of their work and how it plays a part in the story adds another layer that helps to move the story along.

Mary Preston said...

Of course I love cowboys!!! Now I just have to catch one.

Lil said...

There is something really appealing about cowboy heros...work ethic, integrity, general strength.

Yvonne Lindsay said...

Maybe turn him into a cowboy?

Yvonne Lindsay said...

Definitely, Leni. There's something about a hardworking man that is so appealing.

Yvonne Lindsay said...

Practice your lasso skills, Mary! :D

Yvonne Lindsay said...

You're so right, Lil!
