Book #4 - Mistletoe Wedding (Meg & Ty)
Book #5 - A Christmas Homecoming (Ellie & Josiah)
The idea behind Kiss Me, Cowboy came to me in as I was writing Home For Christmas, one of the Copper Mountain Christmas novellas released in 2013. A wrangler named Zack Harris caught my eye and imagination. He was a military veteran turned cowboy who also taught shooting to guests during the summer months. Handsome and hardworking, but with some baggage. I just hadn't figured out what yet.
I could easily picture Zack in my mind (and my heart!) I knew he would be a great hero, but I hadn't figured out a heroine for him until writing a line about the Bar V5's female wrangler Charlie who was spending the winter in Colorado.
A plot popped into my head. What if a woman fell in love with a coworker, but he didn't date the women he worked with? What if she couldn't get over her feelings for him? How far would she go to stop her crush?
Ideas flowed around the unrequited love trope. I couldn't wait to write Charlie and Zack's story for Montana Born Books and was so happy when I was asked to participate in the Copper Mountain Rodeo series.
