Hi! It’s just a few days now until COWBOYS DON”T COME OUT releases, a story in which i include Cowboys, Holidays and Hawaii all in One Book! Yep, this is not a traditional cowboy story (although books later in the series will be). In this book, my hero, Rand McIntyre, goes on vacation for the holidays with his parents. They go to Hana, Hawaii, which is a center for the Hawaiian paniolo (cowboy) tradition. Hawaii actually had cowboys between 15 and 50 years before the mainland (depending on which history you read). Just like California, Hawaiian cowboys came from Mexico and, to this day, paniolos still maintain more of the vaquero tradition than that of the mainland cowboy.
In Cowboys Don’t Come Out, my hero Rand meets a Hawaiian paniolo, Kai Kealoha, and strikes up a vacation romance. But Kai has a boatload of secrets and those ultimately interfere with the casual nature of the romance. There are tons of horses, riding and two-stepping in the book, as well as some pretty hot sex in bamboo forests and such.
We even get a touch of holiday cheer as Rand gets sucked into the charm and love of Kai’s younger brother and sister.
I hope you enjoy Cowboys Don’t Come Out. It releases on December 7th. Here’s the blurb. To read an excerpt and see the buy links, click HERE.
Rand McIntyre settles for good enough. He loves his small California ranch, raising horses, and teaching riding to the kids he adores—but having kids of his own and someone to love means coming out, and that would jeopardize everything he’s built. Then, despite his terror of flying, he goes on a holiday to Hana, Hawaii, with his parents and meets the dark and mysterious Kai Kealoha, a genuine Hawaiian cowboy. Rand takes to Kai’s kid brother and sister as much as he drools over Kai, but the guy sports more prickles than a horned toad and more secrets than the exotic land he comes from.
Kai’s earned his privacy and lives to protect his “kids.” He ought to stay away from the big, handsome cowboy for everyone’s sake—but since the guy’s just a haole on a short vacation, how much damage can he do? When all of Kai’s worst fears and Rand’s darkest nightmares come true at once, there’s not much chance for two cowboys who can’t—or won’t—come out.
See you soon! : )
