My first love was the theater. And my greatest professional thrill wasacting on the same stage as Sarah Bernhardt--though not in the same century.
I've had small parts in a few movies and TV shows, including the hitprograms HONEY I SHRUNK THE KIDS and DEGRASSI JUNIOR HIGH.
Writing is rather similar to acting, I believe. Except I get to play ALLthe characters...while wearing my PJs and sipping tea.
What could be better?
I'm married to my first love--a wonderful guy. So I don't just write romance, I live it!

Crazy for Cowboy had me up turning pages and doing my best to stifle giggles in the wee hours. Brandon Hollister is a yummy hero who tells, what he believes, is a harmless white lie and gets him into trouble on multiple levels including by misleading the heroine, Emily, about his real identity. She thinks he's a real cowboy - something she's sworn an oath to avoid at all costs - until she meets Brandon.
Watching the antics and sparks fly between these two multi-faceted characters was a complete riot! I couldn't help pulling for Brandon in spite of his digging himself in deeper at every turn, and Emily's attempts to talk herself out of her magnetic attraction to him had me laughing out loud in several places. Roxy Boroughs writes with a singular wit and charm I can't wait to read more of!
This book ended before it really started. This is the second book I've read of the Stampede Sizzler series, and while it may not be my last...cause I do like a nice cowboy story...this one kind of missed the mark.
Emily is a vet who mostly looks after the farm animals and is afraid of falling for another cowboy. Cowboys can be cruel on the heart, making her think she's falling in love then pulling the rug out from under her feet. She's sworn off cowboys for good. Except when she sees a good looking cowboy at a fancy restaurant, she just can't help but stare.
Brandon is an actor who just so happens to work at the fancy restaurant on his off days. While he doesn't normally dress up in cowboy garb, he is trying out for a movie part...a part in which includes rididng a horse for which he doesn't know how to ride and just so happens to be allergic to. But, he's willing to do anything to land the part.
Then he meets Emily and she takes his breath and sensibilities away. He thinks, because she's staring at him that she must like cowboys. So, he tells her a fake name. Lies are told, lies are found out...but the sparks fly amongst them anyway.
I really wanted to like this book as much as the other Stampede Sizzler romance novel that I read, but this one missed the mark by a long shot. While the story was okay, and there was lots of sexual tension, the book sort of ended before it could get to any good parts. There wasn't even a hint of any sexual encounters which I would have liked to have seen.
Studded with a little bit of humour, this romance would be good for those who like their romances less HOT. While it was predicatable, it was a fair story. I just would have liked to have seen more...if you know what I mean.
This is a really nice novella length book. The story is believable. The characters are believable. The plot could very well happen so it too is believable. The story is well written and concise. I do love stories who save us from long and drawn out opening before we get to the actual details of the story.
Emily Grant is an equine veterinarian who has been hurt badly by cowboys. She has taken a vow, thanks to her friend's urging, to swear off of cowboys due to a few bad romances with them. Then one day Emily meets Brandon Hollister at a restaurant. They don't exchange names, but keeping to her oath to not date cowboys anymore, she gives him the brush off.
When Emily makes her Vet rounds at a riding stable, she again encounters Brandon. But the stable hand, Sam, tells Emily his name is Houston as he knows Brandon wants to keep the secret that he is learning how to ride a horse for a role in a movie Brandon has. Rather than set Emily straight right off, he allows the lie to continue. And so the story continues in one situation after another. There is definitely chemistry between them. The situations that happen from the stables on leads to some romance, love and humor along the way. Oh, and lest I forget, Brandon has a 'family'. Not what you think folks, but you have to read the book to find out.
For those who hate sexy scenes, there is really not any. A bit of illusion in words, but nothing more. This does not mean I would give the book to young teens though.
This story teaches the value of honesty, in both Brandon's life and Emily's life. Emily has been living under a cloud from her childhood that was never really there because her mother would not tell her the truth. When her mother does finally come clean, Emily's burden is lifted and the world seems like a brighter and better place.
I do recommend this book. You will enjoy it very much.
