First Lady

When you think of romance, your first thoughts probably don’t go to a story about politicians or political wives.

It’s Officially Spring!  Time for a Good Western Romance

on March 29, 2016

  I can’t explain exactly how westerns and spring came to be linked in my mind, but suffice to say, the weather has to have something to do with it. Any self-respecting person who rides horses will tell you that summer — at least in Oklahoma and Texas — is way too hot and sweaty… Read More
