The last person Amanda Goodson expected to walk into her bakery was Sean Cassidy, the bareback bronc rider who rode her hard one night and left without a good-bye the next day. Since then, she’d sworn off one-night stands and cowboys, but one look at the man she called Rodeo leaves her hankering for another ride.
A nasty injury ended Sean’s career and left him with nothing but time to contemplate past sins, especially the most damning one…walking out on Amanda, the one woman he couldn’t forget. Eager to right the biggest mistake of his life, he finds Amanda–and learns he has competition. Never one to back down from a challenge, he offers to fulfill her darkest fantasy–taking two cowboys for a ride.
When the dust settles, will Sean’s plan to win Amanda’s trust backfire or will she risk her heart for one more shot at Riding Rodeo?
What is your must-have food or treat for writing?
While writing, I like to have coffee or tea at hand. My favorite place to edit is one of my local Starbucks. I don’t have a drink of choice (vary between lattes, americanos, black tea, and earl grey), and I stopped eating, for the most part, the treats when I found the pounds creeping upward. 🙂
Have you been to any of the places you write about?
All of my contemporaries are based in Houston or in Texas, which is where I call home. So, of course I’ve been all around the area where the stories occur, but the actual locations don’t exist.
Are you a plotter or a pantser?
I’m a pantster all the way. I’ve tried plotting, and my attempts fail. My characters drive the story, which is probably why some wips sit untouched for long periods. It’s like there’s a hundred voices in my head, and whoever screams the loudest gets the attention.
How do you celebrate typing “The End”?
You mean I get to celebrate? I normally send it out to my CPs and then bite my nails down to nubs waiting for their more than timely responses. After which, I work in their comments, do another read through and figure out where to submit it to. Then I work up a blurb and submit. For the week or so, I return to biting my nails. Once the nerves settle, I move onto the next project.
I don’t think I celebrate until I’ve finished galleys and get the production copy. Then, I smile a lot and find people to give copies to. I’m so boring. 🙂
