This has just been an amazing two weeks for me. Buck Naked hit the best seller lists out of the gate and everyone has been so wonderful about supporting it and promoting it. The blog stops have been fantastic and you all rock.

The entire series started with a funny real-life incident that became the basis for STARK NAKED and it just kept rolling from there.

Of course, I am totally in love with cowboys. Any kind of cowboys. And Buck Montgomery is my favorite kind, sexy and sensuous with a very dark past. I wanted Amy, who ahs made such poor choices in men up to now, to be able to look beneath the surface. To give in to her attraction to him and finally learn what makes a real relationship work.

I live in the heart of the Texas Hill Country, surrounded by ranches, and there are a couple down the road from me that served as the models for Buck’s ranch and the Stark ranch. I took lots of pictures so I’d have reference points when I wrote things like the barbecue scene.

I’m also hooked on rodeo performers. When my wonderful hubby was alive we never missed the San Antonio Stock show and Rodeo. The men I saw competing became the model for some of my heroes, including Buck Montgomery. There is a special drive, a special need in those men that carries into every area of their lives.

I put some of myself in Amy, too. Spicy, sassy, independent. Although I made really good choices with the men kin my life!

So thank you so much to everyone who helped with this. We’re still on Samhain’s best seller list. Stripped Naked will be out later this year and next year look for Bare Naked. As long as you all love my naked cowboys I’ll keep writing them.


Thank you!



Sometimes out of the frying pan and into the fire is the best way to burn.

Amy Stark has it all together—except for chronic bad taste in men. She’s firmly in hands-off-all-men mode when a flat tire forces her to accept the help of exactly the type of man she’s sworn off. Arrogant, cocky and condescending.

When she runs into him again later that day and then finds out her brother has invited him for dinner, the fire between them has a sizzle of a different kind.

At eighteen, Buck Montgomery left home to make his mark on the bull-riding circuit. He may have had wild success in rodeo but his personal life is in the dust, and while he’s ready to start a new life he’s wary to expose his heart. Buck knows he should tell Amy the truth, but every time he opens his mouth, hers is right there with kisses like molten lava.

When his past resurfaces at the worst possible time, Buck can only wonder if Amy will love the man he has become…or if the man he was will chase her away.

Product Warnings: Contains barnyard language and clap-your-hands-over-your-mama’s-eyes sex between a cowboy with a checkered past and a ranch girl with all the right moves.
