#Giveaway of Cowboy Bold by Carolyn Brown (#CowboyoftheMonth #COTMCrew)

We are celebrating a huge milestone for author, Carolyn Brown today! Cowboy Bold is the 90th book she has published- woohoo! Learn more about Cade  and Cowboy Bold below.



MEET CADE FROM COWBOY BOLD BY CAROLYN BROWN


Name: Cade Maguire
Age: 30
From: Sunset, Texas
Height: 6’4’’

If your best friends had to pick four words to describe you, what would they pick? 
Friendly, hard-working, fun-loving, wary of relationships.

What are you passionate about? 
Ranching and family.

Describe a typical Friday night. 
You’ll find me at The Rusty Spur, a bar where I hang out with my brother, Justin, and our foreman and best friend, Levi, on Friday and/or Saturday nights. We like to drink a few beers, listen to country music on the juke box and do some two steppin’, and if we get lucky, maybe take a pretty lady home with us.

What are three things you enjoy doing in your free time? 
Watching football games on TV or better yet attending a Texas Longhorn game. Working on our ranch, The Longhorn Canyon. That may seem crazy because work isn’t supposed to be fun, but my grandpa said that if you’re doin’ what you love then it’s not work, it’s pure enjoyment. And I love the summer when we host underprivileged kids at the ranch. I devote all my free time to them during those weeks.

What’s the last song you listened to? Favorite book? 
H.O.L.Y. by Florida Georgia Line. I don’t really have a favorite book but when I do have time to read it’s usually something by Louis L’Amour.

If you could go back in time and change one thing in your life, what would it be? 
I wouldn’t have gotten involved with Julie, my ex-fiance who broke off our engagement on the day of our wedding. That scarred me and I may never trust again.

What are you looking for in an ideal mate? 
If I ever get into another relationship, she will have to love ranching as much as I do. She’ll have to help me learn to trust again. Retta, the lady that I hired to be the girls’ counselor for the summer, is an amazing lady… but she’s got her heart set on going back to Dallas as soon as the kids all go home...


COWBOY OF THE MONTH 




36204886Cowboy Bold 
(Longhorn Canyon #1)
by Carolyn Brown
Paperback, 336 pages
Expected publication: May 29th 2018 by Forever
ISBN 1538744864
With her sassy humor and sexy cowboys, USA Today bestseller Carolyn Brown launches her new Longhorn Canyon series.

One city girl, one die-hard rancher, and eight mischievous kids. What could go wrong?

Every summer Cade Maguire looks forward to opening his Longhorn Canyon Ranch to underprivileged city kids. But this year, he's having no luck finding a counselor for the children-until Retta Palmer walks through his door.

Flat broke after selling everything she owns to pay her father's medical bills, Retta is thrilled to hear of an opening for a counselor position. She's not as thrilled about the ranching part, or the sexy cowboy with beautiful blue eyes who's her new boss.

After being left at the altar two years before by his fiancée, Cade isn't sure he can take another heartbreak. And Retta isn't even sure she wants to stay. But the sparks between them are absolutely undeniable. And with a couple of lovable kids and two elderly folks playing matchmaker, Cade and Retta may find that the best way to heal is with each other. 



About the Author:
Carolyn Brown
Hi! I'm twenty five years old and movie star gorgeous. The camera added thirty plus years and a few wrinkles. Can't trust those cameras or mirrors either. Along with bathroom scales they are notorious liars! Honestly, I am the mother of three fantastic grown children who've made me laugh and given me more story ideas than I could ever write. My husband, Charles, is my strongest supporter and my best friend. He's even willing to eat fast food and help with the laundry while I finish one more chapter! Life is good and I am blessed!

Reading has been a passion since I was five years old and figured out those were words on book pages. As soon as my chubby little fingers found they could put words on a Big Chief tablet with a fat pencil, I was on my way. Writing joined reading in my list of passions. I will read anything from the back of the Cheerio's box to Faulkner and love every bit of it. In addition to reading I enjoy cooking, my family and the ocean. I love the Florida beaches. Listening to the ocean waves puts my writing brain into high gear.

I love writing romance because it's about emotions and relationships. Human nature hasn't changed a bit since Eve coveted the fruit in the Garden of Eden. Settings change. Plots change. Names change. Times change. But love is love and men and women have been falling in and out of it forever. Romance is about emotions: love, hate, anger, laughter... all of it. If I can make you laugh until your sides ache or grab a tissue then I've touched your emotions and accomplished what every writer sets out to do.

I got serious about writing when my third child was born and had her days and nights mixed up. I had to stay up all night anyway and it was very quiet so I invested in a spiral back notebook and sharpened a few pencils. The story that emerged has never sold but it's brought in enough rejection slips to put the Redwood Forest on the endangered list. In 1997 Kensington bought two books for their Precious Gems line. Two years and six books later the line died with only four of those books seeing publication. But by then Avalon had bought a book and another, and another. Ten years later the list has grown to thirty nine. Last year Sourcebooks bought the Lucky Series which is in the bookstores now. They've also bought The Honky Tonk Series which will debut with I LOVE THIS BAR in June and will be followed by HELL, YEAH, MY GIVE A DAMN'S BUSTED, and HONKY TONK CHRISTMAS.

Folks ask me where I get my ideas. Three kids, fifteen grandchildren, two great grandchildren. Note: I was a very young grandmother! Life is a zoo around here when they all come home. In one Sunday afternoon there's enough ideas to keep me writing for years and years. Seriously, ideas pop up at the craziest times. When one sinks its roots into my mind, I have no choice but to write the story. And while I'm writing the characters peek over my shoulder and make sure I'm telling it right and not exaggerating too much. Pesky little devils, they are!

I have a wonderful agent, Erin Niumata, who continues to work magic and sell my work. I'm very lucky to have her and my editors who continue to believe in me.

Happy reading! http://carolynlbrown.com/
