For the Love of Cowboys ~ for Victoria Vane

iStock_000014541521MediumWhy do we love cowboys so much?

Is it because the iconic man of the west helped build America?

Sarah Wendell of the romance blog Smart Bitches, Trashy Romance said in Time*:  “There is something very sexy about knowing that at 4 in the morning, if it’s 20 degrees below zero, that a guy’s going to get up and take care of things.”

All that manual labor’s bound to produce rock hard abs and a heart of gold.

We can’t resist a man who gets the job done. True, there’s billionaires galore in romance, but we do love a working man. There’s only so many Armani suits a girl can take and then *whew* a hot man in blue jeans is like a tall glass of water.

Are you thirsty yet?

But what about the vampires and shifters?

“I think the cowboy IS the new vampire,” opines Margaret Marbury, the vice president of editorial for Harlequin. Do yourself a favor and grab a cowboy.

Don’t miss out!

Victoria Vane offers up her cowboys with grit, heart, and hard bodies. Take a look at her new contemporary cowboy romance series Hot Cowboy Nights:

      Hi Denise,
      Yes, I will gladly take a cowboy over a billionaire. Crazy, I know. But there’s something about a hard bodies man in jeans. 🙂

    Mmm, cowboys. I love the ruggedness, for sure! That rough around the edges gets me every time!

    I have absolutely no interest in billionaires, but cowboys are cool. I love the covers for this series! 🙂
