The Heroic Cowboy
by Linda Lael Miller, author of Forever A Hero
It’s been said I know a lot about cowboys, and I won’t argue with that! There are few things I love more than writing about their unique way of life. Cowboys make some of the best heroes—strong integrity, strong hearts, and a deep, innate respect that is demonstrated in everything they do.
And they’re humble about it, too. Just look at Mace Carson, the hero from my newest Carsons of Mustang Creek book, Forever A Hero.
Aptly named, except he’s the last person who would ever want to be called a hero. He just cares about doing the right thing. Besides, if he could talk about himself…he might mention that he can be a bit stubborn.
My heroine, Kelly Wright, was saved by Mace’s heroic actions years ago, and she’s never forgotten him. How could she? She’s always been able to take care of herself, but in the rare moment when she had no control, a handsome stranger was there to lend a helping hand. She’s a firm believer in the innate goodness of a cowboy, too, and their second meeting does nothing to dissuade her when her car almost plunges over a cliff… and she would have been in it if it weren’t for him!
She was only back in his life because of a business proposition, but things get very personal, very fast… especially when it turns out that her faulty car wasn’t just bad luck. Someone dangerous from her past has business to finish with her, too… and when that happens, having a hero on her side might be the only thing that can save her.
No matter how tough life gets, there are always heroes to be found. Kelly has found hers, so tell me, dear reader, who are the heroes (or heroines!) in your life?
About Forever A Hero:
For the youngest Carson brother, finding—and fixing—trouble seems to be all in a day’s work
Mace Carson doesn’t consider himself a hero. Back in college, he came upon a woman in trouble and intervened—but he was just one irate Wyoming cowboy with his boots planted firmly on the side of right. Now a successful vintner, Mace is shocked to be reunited with the woman he saved. But it turns out she’s in Wyoming on business…a corporate executive representing the company that wants to buy his winery. Only, he’s not selling.
Kelly Wright has never forgotten that horrible night ten years ago when Mace came to her rescue, has never forgotten him. The surprising success of a winery in the middle of ranch country has brought her to Mustang Creek, and she’s secretly thrilled to discover Mace at the helm. Reluctant to mix business with pleasure, Kelly vows to keep things professional, until her attacker is released from prison and comes for vengeance…against both of them.
