NEW RELEASE: Come Love a Cowboy, A Western anthology of modern lovestories

Today I'm excited to spotlight a new romance anthology focused on modern cowboys and the women who can't get enough of them. Okay, that sounds a little cheesy, so maybe I'll let my friend Hebby Roman explain the thinking behind the latest endeavor she and a few other Western romance authors have put together for readers who like their cowboys.. Take it away, Hebby!

Last autumn ten authors got together to write a western historical Christmas anthology. We all enjoyed working together so much that we “kicked around” some other anthology ideas on our Yahoo Group Loop, and several of us decided to stay together and write another western anthology…but with a very different vibe.

On the one hand, our Christmas historical anthology was sweet and, of course, most of the heroines were defined by the acceptable roles of women in that time in history. Since some of us also write contemporary romance, we decided to do a contemporary western romance anthology and show how the roles of women in the West have advanced over time, as well as adding a little “steam” to our romances. Have to keep things interesting!

About the Anthology:

Eight stand-alone Contemporary Western Romance novellas from Bestselling and Award Winning Authors. From firefighters, bronco busters, and wealthy ranchers to bad boys, we have them all for you!  If you've ever wanted to fall in love with a sexy, alpha cowboy of's your chance.
