More About the Author

I'm a former software designer, campaign manager, deli clerk, and cow milker, but always a bookworm. Reading is my passion--westerns, fantasies, historicals of any era, and all with a dash of romance. If an author can make me laugh, I'll buy every book he/she ever wrote.

While I'm a country girl by birth, I currently live in suburbia with my very patient husband (important point: we are the staff of one cat) I don't think you can ever take the country out of a girl's heart. That's probably why my stories often take place in Idaho where I grew up. (Hearts of Owyhee series and some of my short stories, too.)

On my website (JacquieRogers.com) you can find lots of Bonus Features for my stories and other fun stuff. Please let me know if you've posted a review and I'll give you a sneak peek into my next book. Enjoy!

What a hoot!
Jacquie Rogers has an original and delightful imagination. This romance is completely different from anything you've ever read before. You'll find yourself laughing out loud at the
match- making animals. Rogers has created interesting characters and a hero and heroine you'll adore. Brody made my heart race, but I have always been partial to cowboys.
When you want to curl up with a good read, pick this book. From the first page you'll be hooked, and there is no way you'll be able to put it down.

Ms. Rogers has once again captivated me with her imagination and prose.

I received an ARC, and had a very hard time putting it down. I love the setting in the story, my home state of Idaho . Yes Grasmere is a real town. Brody, is a rodeo clown who is hiding from the corporate world of Pettybottham Enterprises. Enter the sophisticated, beautiful, and intriguing Rita Markham, an up and coming actuary for his family's business. This tough bullfighter's knees go weak when he goes to rescue the Markham 's apples from a stubborn mule named Socrates, and sees the beautiful Rita, When did she grow up?

I cannot wait to read more from Ms. Rogers. The book world has its newest star.

If this anything like Jacquie Rogers first book "Faery Special Romances" then it's got to be a great new read. Grab this book up. She is a new and up coming author. I got to read some of this book. My suggestion....buy.

Format: Paperback
Rita Markham's mother, Judy, always told her to never settle down with a cowboy. If a cowboy's life is not cut short, he is crippled early from the multiple injuries received from rodeos. Rita took those words to heart. Always good with math, Rita's MBA takes her to Seattle and she is working on her actuary certification. When considering husband material, Rita looks for someone with the same goals and interests instead of love. This is how she ends up with David Parr as her fiancé.

When her mother is due knee surgery, Rita goes home for several weeks to care for her. The last thing Rita expects is to still feel anything for Brody. She had a huge crush on Brody as a teenager and had even offered herself to him, only to be turned down. Rita never understood exactly why Brody had turned her down since he went through women like tissue paper. Still, Rita cannot deny that the man still makes her knees go weak with his cocky grin. Good thing she has David.

Brody Alexander loves his ranch in Owyhee County, Idaho. When he is not there, he is busy doing his favorite things in life, bullfighting and rodeo clowning. He cared too much for Rita in the past to allow her to give herself to him. Whether he would have encouraged it now or not is a moot point since she has a fiancé. Unknown to those outside his family, Brody's real name is Broderick Pettybottham the Fourth. Broderick owns seventy-five percent of a Fortune 500 corporation, but it is his sister, Caroline, and his mother that manages the corporate operations. His sister and mother have been trying to bring Broderick back to the corporation headquarters in Texas to resume his duties as CEO for quite some time. His interest in Rita just may be a way for them to succeed too.

Socrates is a mule.

Brody and Rita were a terrific pair. Rita is determined to make this a short visit to her home town, but she didn't count on the memories of her non-existent past with Brody following her into the present. Brody doesn't want anyone to know his true identity. All he really wants is to clown around with the bulls. And the other thing he wants is Rita.

There's quite the animal menagerie, from Socrates the mule to his cohorts in crime, or rather his cohorts in matchmaking. Down Home Ever Lovin' Mule Blues is another funny, clever, romantic, inventive book by Jacquie Rogers. I love the way she mixes the human story with a fantasy. Who else can write about faeries and mules and make the reader yearn to be right in the middle of the story? I can guarantee that anyone who reads a Jacquie Rogers book will come away smiling and happier than when she began. Oh, and the romance is first rate too!

I love cowboy stories but some fall way short of expectations. This one did not. And when I find myself laughing out loud, it's a keeper. Put this one on your "to buy" list. You won't be sorry.

Down Home Ever Lovin' Mule Blues by Jacquie Rogers is one funny and romantic contemporary western romance book! A rodeo clown crew who performs for the audiences at rodeos is made up of a mule Socrates, a descent-ed skunk Guinevere, a Australian Shepard Dog Perseus, a half Collie and Half Bloodhound dog Beauty, and even a porcupine named Mrs. Pretty Bottom along with their boss, clown, and rodeo cowboy, Brody. With adventures, romance and comedy, Down Home Ever Lovin' Mule Blues is a creative and unique romance read with a 'pick me up feel good read'!

Set in a town called Gasmer in Idaho, the hero in Down Home Ever Lovin' Mule Blues, Brody Alexander, is a rodeo cowboy on the mend from a recent rodeo injury. Having a past of numerous broken bones and injuries that he had endured through the years from his profession, he continues to work as a Rodeo Clown as he heals. Brody and his hired hand Luke are assisting their neighbor Judy when Rita returns home for a visit to help her mom through a surgery. While home again, Rita is facing many memories of a difficult past of memories of her dad, that creep up on her more and more and she's determined to return back to a city with a more modern living and her career in a business field. She's also engaged to a man named David, who also requires Rita's attention and time. Rita also has her hopes up high to set up a home for children in Gasmer while she is visiting, so that children had a home to stay where they had the support of their own town, community and friends.

Brody's mule Socrates is a leader of the rodeo crew of animals and guides his crew as a team to lead Brody into a romance. Each chapter starts with the mule's thoughts and ideas on putting plans into place to put Brody and Rita together.
