CURL UP WITH A COWBOY


So what makes a cowboy so sexy? I've given it a lot of thought. In fact, I spend a lot of my days and some of my nights thinking about what makes the men I'm writing about so sexy that I wouldn't mind cuddling up with one of the heroes myself from time to time. Not that I would. My hubby probably wouldn't approve. But I can still fantasize.  And I always fall in love with my heroes. If I didn't, how could I expect you to? 

So I'll give you my top three reasons for lovin' those cowboys. You give me yours. And I'll choose a random winner to get a free cowboy book.

1. The Swagger. They really do you know. Could be that rough denim on their thighs, but I live in Cowboy Country, and when a real cowboy walks into a cafe, or restaurant or even church, you know it. The swagger is always there.

2. The way they say yes ma'am. I mean they give word ma'am at least three syllables. And that drawl pulls me in.

3. They let you know that they realize you're a woman--and it doesn't matter how young or how old you are. They pick up the tab when you go out to eat. They're quick to carry anything you need carrying. And they come to your rescue in  a minute even if it's just that you forgot where you parked your car in the Wal-Mart parking lot.

That's my top three. Let's hear yours.

  1. I like your list and would like to add that I love how strong a cowboy is. I like my man (yup, I consider them ALL my men) to be strong enough to carry me (preferably to bed, but I'm open minded, LOL). These men give me the sweetest of dreams....

    1. Yes, definitely strong. Glad you're open minded (LOL) because I've had them make love in some interesting places.

  2. Cowboys are hard workers with a strong work ethic.
    They are protective.
    Hard work = Hard bodies!

  5. Their honor and code, they all seem to have that. I agree they should be strong and capable, in all things. Use your imagination for that one.

  7. Yes, as all of you who read me know, I am big on family loyalty and love their way with kids. My next series which starts in April is called Big D Dads. It's stories of ranching families and all of them either have a child in them or have a strong focus on childen--and, of course, they all have hot cowboy heroes. The first book is titled SON OF A GUN. You can preorder it now.

  9. Love their manners, the way they treat animals and the way they look in a pair of jeans! :)

  10. I love that they have horses and land. Nothing sexier than a cowboy on horseback on open land. 'Course the sexy Southern drawl helps with the appeal, too.

  11. Most cowboys are polite and do look really good in a pair of Wranglers. Would love to curl up with one.

    I have to agree with what everyone is saying. The manners, taking time for family, the drawal, and the jeans, There is just something about them. Maybe they are so respectful because they work so much with nature and understand the beauty of what God has blessed us with.
