#1 NYT bestselling author Linda Lael Miller


My Heroes Have Always Been Cowboys

It’s true.  My heroes have always been cowboys, and they probably always will.  #1, of course, is my late, great dad, Grady “Skip” Lael.  

This month, on March 21, my new contemporary western romance, “Forever A Hero”, will be available wherever books are sold, as well as online.  Mace Carson, of Mustang Creek, Wyoming, is both a hero and a cowboy, and he’s a vintner, too.  He’s rough and tumble and all man, and he’s not afraid to wade in and fight when the need arises.  A true cowboy never turns his back on trouble, and Mace is no exception.  He’s already saved beautiful Kelly Wright once, back in college, when she was attacked on campus, and he stepped up, big-time.  What are the odds that, years later, he’ll have to rescue the same woman all over again ?  Sure enough, he has to do just that, though this time, it’s because she manages to run her car off a slippery Wyoming road.  Minding his own business, driving his pickup behind some tourist’s rental, he has no idea that round two is fixing to start–when the car winds up teetering on the edge of a steep bank, he doesn’t know who’s behind the wheel–he’s out of his truck and running through the rain to help.  That’s a cowboy–and a hero–for you.  Act fast and ask questions later.

Not that smart, willful Kelly is a weakling.  No, sir.  She’s one tough cookie, in the boardroom especially, and she’s come to Mustang Creek with a purpose that has nothing whatsoever to do with falling in love!  She’s there to buy Mace’s flourishing winery, and never mind that he has no intention of selling.  Kelly is sure she can persuade this youngest of the hard-headed Carson brothers, (Slade, “Once a Rancher” and Drake, “Always a Cowboy”) and maybe she can.  

Then again, maybe not.  Win or lose, it will be a wild ride for both of them, wilder than any event in the rodeo, that’s for sure.

When these two meet up, stand back, because there will be a lot of fall-out!

    I love my Linda Lael Miller books. I can read them over and over again. I love me some cowboys too! Unfortunately not many of those in Canton, Ohio.
    Thank you Linda for all the enjoyment your books bring to my life.

    Looking forward to reading Mace’s story. My eReader wouldn’t load the last page of Drake’s story. I went to the book department at Walmart. I saw the book, read the last page, now I’m “story-satisfied”.

Though the term “stick ’em up” is widely used in Western films, it wasn’t actually coined until the 1930’s.
