Cowboy Month

Ok its not a cowboy picture but it is a Yellow Rose and this is Yellow Rose and Cactus Rose Month (sorry Cactus ladies, I can't find a Cactus Rose). This photo is actually straight out of my real garden at home. Its a Peace Rose and it was sent to me a couple years ago by one of our authors in the UK - Diyls Xavier. I had my doubts that it would thrive in our climate but it has and it blooms beautifully every year.

Anyway, for those of you who don't know, its Cowboy Month. I won't even pretend to not be partial to this month. I love it. I absolutely love it.

The Cactus Rose line has an awesome anthology that released last week entitled: "Lawmen and Outlaws", and at the end of the month, another of our WayBack, Texas tales will come out. This one is an anthology by three Yellow Rose authors - entitled "Finding Their WayBack". You won't want to miss reading either of these anthologies.

If you've never tried a Yellow Rose or Cactus Rose story let me gently encourage you to check them out. All titles are on sale this month and I don't think you'll be disappointed by any of them.

So Cowboy Up everyone; let's spend some time with cowboys and cowgirls form the old west or the contemporary ranches of today.

Yes, I have read from both the Yellow and Cactus Rose lines and I thoroughly enjoyed them all. :)

I love cowboys... A cowboy knows both his horse and his woman will blindly follow his lead on trust alone in return for a small amount of kindness, respect and long strokes of affection. A cowboy takes a long time choosing his herd and his wife because they both must be suited to his ranch. And once he brings them home, he keeps a watchful eye and gives them lots of attention so they don't look for 'greener pastures'. A cowboy may never be rich, but God endowed him with a spirit and presence that turns the head of the most jaded woman. Not to mention that western garb with the hat, boots, chaps and spurs. Now there's an image to take my breath away. Yowza!
