Since my next two releases are cowboy books and part of the Cowboy Kink series from The Wild Rose Press, I thought I’d post one of my favorite cowboy moments.

Years ago, I was flying to Dallas to the Romance Writers National Conference and a gentleman sat down next to me wearing a Stetson. Okay, my contact with men who wore Stetson were cowboys from the rodeo’s I’d attended.

Now, I’m not an outgoing person, it wasn’t until we were half-way through the flight that I got up the courage to ask him if he was a cowboy. He smiled and said “Well, ma’am that depends on your definition of a cowboy.”

I must say the “ma’am” in the Texas twang made my bones melt, and why he wasn’t a rodeo cowboy, he was a rancher. We had a wonderful talk about ranching and about the rodeo.

This memory has always been one of my favorite cowboy moments.

So tell me do you have a favorite cowboy moment? It can be from a book, a movie or a cowboy you met. I’d really like to hear your cowboy story.

Marie’s first cowboy book, Quick Silver Ranch: Roped And Ready, will be released by The Wild Rose Press on Feb. 18th. For more information click here

  1. I LOVE cowboys! All that sweatiness, wiping the drops off their chest as they slowly trickle down……oh my, got carried away there. I don’t have any specific moments I love, it’s just everything about them that makes me love them.

  2. Gotta love a hot man on a horse!


  3. Hi Marie! I so been loving those cowboy kink books! And glad there more coming! I love that Madam too! I so can feel it coming from a cowboy!

  5. I first fell in love with cowboys back in 1966 when I moved to Arizona from upstate New York.

    Fortunately I found out about what a real cowboy wa like when my husband’s sister married a “real” cowboy from Baggs, WY! He so authentic that they even made a TV special about his father that was titled The Last Cowboys.

    My niece started driving a tractor when she was three and her bull won the county fair this year and she’s only 16 and my nephew rides bulls. The kids out there really know what real work and dedication are really like. My husband worked there for two winters in the oil field. It doesn’t matter what type of work you do there because it all a fight between just the elements of nature and you.

    Just so you know that cowboys aren’t the only gentlemen that say maam. My younger son went to the Citadel in SC and they may be “southern” genltemen but just like cowboys they sure do know how to treat a lady!

  6. I never met a real cowboy, although I can imagine the features of one. I think the cowboy hat is cute and I love a man with strong hands. Someone who isn’t afraid to get dirty

  7. Hi Joder,

    Yes, have to love those cowboys. Thanks for stopping by.

  8. Hi Elizabeth, yes there is something about a man on a horse. Thanks for stopping by.

  9. Hi Caffey, I’m glad you’re enjoying the Cowboy Kink books. And there is just something so sexy when a cowboy says “Ma’am”. Everything inside me just melts. Thanks for the comment.

  10. Hi Jean, oh yes, cowboys fill out their jeans well. Thanks for stopping by.

  11. Hi Jeanne, Great story. Yes, military guys also say “Ma’am”. I’ve been around enough of them to know they too are cowboys in their own way. Thanks for sharing your story.

  12. Hi Elie, big strong hands that will cradle you tenderly against his hard body. Thanks for stopping by.

  13. Your cowboy, Tyler, sounds quite yummy! Purely, physically speaking, I love all those muscles molded by hard, hands-on work. 🙂

  14. Favorite cowboy moments are Sarah McCarty’s Promises series.

  15. Hi Isabel, thanks for stopping by. Even if I say so myself, Tyler is quite yummy, but so is his business partner, Jared. Who gets his own book in a few months.

  16. Hi Cathy,

    Oh yes, Sarah McCarty’s Promises series has some great cowboys in it. Thanks for commenting.

  17. I lived in Dallas for a while and I was surrounded by cowboys! Not sure if it’s the hat or the boots that makes a cowboy, but they are definitely yummy!


  18. A true cowboy is a man of faith, patriotic, loves “the land”, is good to horses and dogs and tolerates cats. He adores his family and friends. He would give his life for his country and his loved ones. Upon first glance, all of these characteristics may not be readily apparent. Sometimes, cowboys hoot and holler. Sometimes, they are quiet and thoughtful. They are always worth a second look : )

    My grandfather was never a cowboy, but he loved westerns. He read many books by Zane Grey and Louis L’Amour. My whole family sat together when I was a kid and watched great shows like Gunsmoke, Bonanza, The Big Valley, Wagon Train, and Death Valley Days. Later on, we never missed an episode of Little House on the Prairie. As an adult, I watched every episode of Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman! Historical Western Romance is my favorite genre. I’ll always be a prairie woman at heart : )

  19. Hi Cindy, I’ve visited Dallas on several occasions and I’m with you the cowboys are yummy. Thanks for stopping by.

  20. Hi Virginia, I agree with you on a true cowboy. And I remember as a kids watching the same shows as you do. My mom still watches Little House on the Prairie every day. Thanks for commenting.

  21. I can’t wait to read it. I love cowboys and enjoy reading books with cowboys in it.

  22. I love me some cowboys, my favorite type of read. I grew up watching westerns and as I got older I found that western books fall wonderful into my reading material.


  23. Yea, have to agree that a hat and boots don’t necessarily make a cowboy. Living in Dallas you run into alot of fine gentlemen that just have that deep southern hospitality that makes you think they were raised right.

  24. Hi Terra, thanks for commenting. I’m glad you enjoy cowboy books, I have to say I really enjoyed writing this one.

  25. Hi Virgina, thanks for commenting. I’m glad cowboys are your favorite type of read. Hope you enjoy mine.

  26. Hi Stephanie, thanks for commenting. That fine southern hospitality does set men apart, and I would agree they were raised right.

  27. I am just starting to get into Cowboys, and I never knew what I was missing.

  28. I’ve really never lived near any cowboys, but I’m an absolute sucker for them in books. I know whipped cream is for more sexy romances, but I’m an absolute sucker for the Diana Palmer romances. I just can’t help myself.

  29. Wish I had a cowboy moment to share. Have never lived near any, or even visited cowboy country for any length of time(at least not since I was about 11 years old and spent some time in Wyoming in the summer, but I was more into CBs and truckers at that time).

  30. Cowboys were never attractive to me until I discovered erotica. LOL
