What makes cowboys such fascinating heroes? I've given that a lot of thought over the past few months, especially since I've started the Special Ops series where I have former NAVY SEALs who are cowboys to the core. What a mix! I've come to a few conclusions. For one, I love the strong ethics they bring to a situation. I think those ethics affect the way they go at solving a crime. By nature they seem so protective, of their livestock and the people they love. I like the way they're comfortable in their environment and in their skin. I like their love for their land and for their country. I like that devotion and the wy they always strive to do the just thing. And then there is the way they look in those tight jeans, boots and Stetsons. I had to roll up my tongue and stick it back in my mouth when I saw the cowboy Commando cover.
Overheard in my local beaty salon the other day:
Cowboys are to women what blondes are to men. When you see one, you just have to take a second look. (Sometimes I take a third or fourth.) I'd love to hear your ideas on what makes cowboys an intriguing Intriue hero. Or if you don't like them, I'd like to hear that, too.
