Guest Post with Authors Carolyn Brown
 & Linda Broday

They are tough, hard working, and have the manners their mama gave them. Is it no wonder that readers are in love with the ultimate hero — cowboys. Today we’ve got Western romance authors Carolyn Brown and Linda Broday to reminisce about the very first cowboy romance they ever read and the lessons they learned that they use in their own stories. Take it away ladies!
Carolyn Brown: I have been reading westerns for so long I can’t remember my first western but I do remember my favorite one. That would be Hummingbird by LaVyrle Spencer. Abigail had two men living in her house. One upstairs. One downstairs. One had been shot by the other and she was nursing both back to health. The salesman downstairs called her Abigail and her mind told her that he was the one who would give her stability. But, oh my, that one upstairs that called her Abby put an extra beat in her heart and made her pulse race. This story taught me that the heart and the mind do not always agree, as was the case with my newest heroine Jill and those three cowboys in The Trouble with Texas Cowboys. Her mind told her that either the Brennan or the Gallagher cowboy could give her stability. But her heart yearned for Sawyer, the cowboy who didn’t have anything material to give her at all.
Linda Broday: The first western romance book with grit I ever read was Angel by Johanna Lindsay and I was hooked. It’s about a ruggedly handsome hired gun with eyes as black as sin that everyone calls “Angel” because they see him as the Angel of Death. He was such a wounded alpha hero and even after all this time (since 1992) I can’t forget him. I’d read Johanna Lindsey for many years and loved her pirates and Englishmen but this book rose above the rest on many levels and it resonated with something deep inside me. I learned that people can change and they can find redemption no matter what they’ve done if they put forth the effort. I also learned that love always wins.

Most of the western romance I’d read up to this point were fluff with no real meat. I wanted realism and depth and the way the West really must’ve been. After I read Angel I knew I wanted to write western romance. I wanted to write realistic, gritty stories that tell of the immense struggle it was to settle the wild land. It took men with strength and courage, men who wouldn’t quit. So I sat down and wrote Knight on the Texas Plains and many others. But I’m most proud of my Bachelors of Battle Creek series. The first book, Texas Mail Order Bride, features rancher Cooper Thorne, the oldest of his blood brothers. He's the founder of the Battle Creek Bachelors Club and has vowed to never marry because of his horrific past. He’s happy being a bachelor, at least until Delta Dandridge steps off a stagecoach claiming to be the bride he sent for.


  1. My thanks to Sassy Book Lovers for featuring me and Carolyn. We're so excited about our books and a chance to tell everyone why our passion lies with these sexy cowboys. Plain and simple, they're in my blood. I live in the Texas Panhandle where cowboys are very common. I see firsthand what drives them, what makes them choose this kind of life and what kind of men they are. They're a special breed for sure.

    I hope you'll look for these books and fall in love with our cowboys!
