The Texas Cowboy

 


The Texas Cowboy

Return to Folly Book 1

by Linda Nightingale

Genre: Contemporary Western Romance 

When Ash Colter was twelve, his mother divorced his cattle baron father and whisked him away to raise in her native England. Sixteen years later, when his father dies, he inherits Marathon Ranch. Running a 1,000-acre spread famous for the best Black Angus cattle in the great state of Texas is the biggest challenge he’s ever faced…until he meets a pert, pretty, and sassy ranch hand who seems to have her own agenda for his ranch. Unfortunately, she makes his spurs go jingle-jangle-jingle like no one else ever has!

Trish Owens is a real cowgirl, a loner, and, though she’d never admit it, a little lonely. When the “English Cowboy” appears on the scene, her entire way of life is threatened, not only her job, but her beloved Quarter horses. She’s sure he plans to import his thoroughbred horses from England. Worst of all is the chemistry sizzling between them. He makes feelings she thought long dead awaken.

Can these two unwilling allies set aside their differences to put Marathon Ranch in the Winner’s Circle…and to fall in love?

    1. Take a look on Amazon and see what you think. If you like horses, my horse material is correct. I bred, trained and showed horses for many years,

    1. Hi Rita! I was able to use my horse knowledge a little, and I hope it gave it more depth in the background and as a conflict. If you pick up the book, I hope you enjoy it!

    1. Hi Katie. Jingle-Jangle-Jingle is actually the title of a song by Gene Autry, one of the old western greats. The line says "I got spurs that Jingle, jangle, jingle As I go riding merrily along..."

    1. Greetings, Mary. There's one part in the Gene Autry song that says "and my spurs go jingle jangle jingle; They seem to say boy ain't you glad you're single." Ha!

    1. Great, Tina! I hope you enjoy your visit to Folly, Texas, with Ash and Trish. The sequel, which I'm working on now, stars the cowboy Charlie and the duchess Dorothy.

  7. I find it interesting that the emphasis seems to be more on the horses than the cattle, which from the blurb are what make the ranch famous.
