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!

From the moment I started reading,Crazy for Cowboy, I knew I was going to love it. There are tons of great one-liners, the characters are fun and engaging, and since I'm a sucker for a strong, sexy, vulnerable hero, I was cheering all the way for the "cowboy" to win his girl! I laughed out loud as I was reading, and found myself anxiously flipping the pages to see what would happen next. Kudos to Roxy Boroughs for spinning another winning tale. Job well done!
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!
Emily is a large animal vet who has been burned too any times by cowboys. She swears them off, vowing to never date a cowboy again.Then she meets Houston, a cowboy who is determined to date her. There's one big problem-have you ever told a little white lie that turned into a doozy? Well that happens here. The great thing about this story is nothing is predictable. Why? Because the characters are well drawn. the man is caring and the heroine is multifaceted. This is a great story-I'd recommend it.
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.
"Crazy for Cowboy" was a fun read and not entirely what I expected. You may think this is a straight-up cowboy story, but it is not. Certainly there are some elements, but the enjoyable relationship between Brandon and Emily overpowers that. This book really felt more about the importance of relationships than anything else, and not just between the hero and heroine, but between Brandon and his sister and nephew. I liked the emphasis placed on the family bond, and I couldn't help but like Brandon for what he did for them. Brandon's sister and nephew are delightful supporting characters.
Emily has it rough, what with all those good-looking cowboys walking around in her life, but she does her best to resist (good luck with that Emily). When a handsome "cowboy" like Brandon is trying to insert himself into your heart, you're probably better off giving up and letting him in. I didn't necessarily connect with the characters, but I enjoyed each of them.
As a bonus, this is a nice clean read and I would recommend to all audiences who enjoy a fun romance. I would read more books by this author.
What a refreshing short story. It was just sweet, funny, & a wholesome love story. You have Emily who is a lady veterinarian & Brandon who is an actor posing as a cowboy. At first he does it as a gag just to meet her & also gives her the false name of Houston. The next day he runs into her again purely by accident & allows the lie to spin out of control as well as their attraction for one another. Can he fix it & tell the truth when he hears from others that she real loves cowboys. Does he truly want to? The craziness that follows is worth the read. It is fun. It is clesn. & It is real. The characters are well developed as well as the storyline. Enjoy!
Despite not liking the fact that Brandon is pretty much lying to the heroine for a good portion of the book (pet peeve button...), I really enjoyed Crazy for Cowboy. It's a fun romp through the Calgary Stampede scene from the Stampede itself to popular watering holes.
It's a sensual book with Roxy juggling the fact that Brandon's not on the up and up really well in their relationship (spoiler: no sex as that would make him sleazy.) So really, I'd let my mom read this and that's saying something!
