Cowboy Tough

Borrow Borrow Borrow Borrow

Sparks fly when a sexy cowboy collides with a determined city girl out in a West filled with quirky characters and sizzling romance. Acclaimed for delivering "a fresh take on the traditional contemporary Western," Joanne Kennedy's books might just be your next great discovery!

Being a Cowboy is All He Knows...But No Cowboy Can Rein Her In.

Bronc-buster Mack Boyd can ride a wild stallion to a standstill, but he can't say no when his family prevails on him to come home and help run the ranch. The last person he expects to find there is a high-class Easterner like Cat Crandall.

When Cat Crandall gives up a lucrative advertising job to follow her artistic dreams, she's thinking Paris, Tuscany—not the vast and lonely open country of Wyoming. Her success at Boyd Ranch's artists' retreat could be her ticket to far more exotic places...but the rough and rugged cowboy she meets there is giving Cat a different kind of inspiration.

Praise for Joanne Kennedy:
"Hot, hot, hot. . . with more twists and turns than a buckin' bull at a world-class rodeo, lots of sizzlin' sex, and characters so real you'll swear they live down the road!" – Carolyn Brown, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of Red's Hot Cowboy on Cowboy Fever
"Kennedy is making a name for herself in the field of contemporary Western romances, taking her place beside Linda Lael Miller and Carolyn Brown."—Booklist
"A sassy and sexy wild ride that is more fun than a wild hootenanny!"-The Romance Reviews, 5 Stars on Tall, Dark, and Cowboy

    November 5, 2012
    Kennedy's love of the West shines in this cowboy romance featuring a watercolor artist. Cat Crandall decides to trade in her Chicago ad agency job for a two-week stint teaching painting at a Wyoming dude ranch. Since her sister's death, Cat wants to live life to the fullest, and that includes being a mother figure to her rebellious teen niece, who's attending the art camp along with an elderly couple and their middle-aged daughter, a big tattooed man, and a snooty photographer who puts her teeth on edge. Rodeo star Mack Boyd has returned to the ranch to help his mom out of financial ruin, but he finds his mind more on Cat than the horses, not least because the ranch desperately needs the income from the art lessons. Several romantic subplots and various hot sex scenes are tacked on to a muddled plot of cattle rustling, horse poisoning, and art. Agent: Elaine English, Elaine English Agency.
