Available in: Paperback (reprint)
Wrangling a sweet talkin’ cowboy can be dangerous business in the latest Blacktop Cowboy novel from the New York Times bestselling author of the Mastered series.
When living with her rancher husband, Abe Lawson, in rural Wyoming nearly broke her spirit, Janie Fitzhugh left. But, eight years later, she returns to Muddy Gap to take a job at a new resort. When an unexpected danger arises, Abe seizes the chance to protect Janie and prove he’s a changed man.
Janie’s employer at the Split Rock Ranch and Resort, Renner Jackson, has gotten himself tangled up in a devil’s bargain. His new partner’s daughter, Tierney Pratt, is a spoiled daddy’s girl and off limits—no matter how drop dead gorgeous she is. But Tierney’s got her own secret reasons for keeping the rough-and-tumble cowboy at a distance.
When things get down and dirty at the resort, Abe and Renner must saddle up and fight to rope in the women they can’t imagine living without…

Portraiture by Russell LLoyd Jensen/Sage Studios
A bit about me: When I'm not squirreled away behind my laptop writing fun, sexy, contemporary erotic romances set in the modern day Wild West, I can be found reading everything under the sun, practicing yoga until I'm a pretzel, shootin' my .22, watching the Professional Bull Riders tour on Versus, and running a kid's taxi service, all in the guise of avoiding housework and rustlin' up vittles.
Why do I have a particular fondness for all things western? Well, I'm a fourth generation South Dakotan, living in the Black Hills, which is chock-full of interesting characters, including cowboys, Indians, ranchers, and bikers. The geographical diversity of the surrounding area showcases mountains, plains, and badlands. Living in and writing about rural settings gives me a unique perspective, especially since I'm not writing historical westerns. Through my fictional world, I can show the ideals and the cowboy way of life are still very much alive.
I also write a dark, gritty mystery series under another name. Check it out: http://www.loriarmstrong.com
