Wrangler jeans and Stetsons, handguns and shiny badges . . .
I’ve always had a thing for cowboys and I’ve always had a thing for lawmen. So what could be hotter than cowboy lawmen . . . especially when it comes to the Arizona desert and when it comes to erotic romance?
I was born and raised in Southeastern Arizona, about twenty miles from the Mexican border, where the Armed & Dangerous series is set. Kade is even set on the ranch I grew up on.
The four-book Armed & Dangerous series has its foundations in the “Wild” series that I wrote for Ellora’s Cave several years ago. The print rights for that series were sold to St. Martin’s Press. To make a long story short, two of the four books were rewritten, one book was revised, and one book is very close to the original. All of the names were changed though by request of my St. Martin’s editor. To protect the innocent, I think. ; )
The first romance I wrote—ever—was Wild Borders, now known as Kade. It holds a special place in my heart for a lot of reasons including the fact that it was the beginning of my career as a romance writer, even though it was not the first romance I had published.
For me there’s just something about a man in boots and a man with a gun . . .
So, what do you love about cowboys?
What do you love about men in law enforcement?
