Hottest Cowboy Voting: Day 1

Day 2 of Voting
Voting ends at midnight 12-13-14

Let's Get This Rodeo Started!


My favorite hottie cowboy is Taylor Cole.  He was so much fun to hang out with at the Wild Wicked Weekend in San Antonio.  He then went on to win Caveman of the Year.  Yummy!!!  And I can see why.  After attending three different Romance book conventions in 2014, Taylor was the nicest, most approachable of them all.  He kept us laughing and smiling the whole time.  It couldn't have happened to a nicer guy.  Did I mention he was a hottie?

All the nominees for Hottest Cowboy Character are listed in the Hottest Cowboy tab in the top toolbar.  Or you can click here.

Aron McCoy
Cowboy Heat, Hell Yeah!
by Sable Hunter
Blurb
 Aron McCoy has sworn off women - except for sex. When Libby Fontaine arrives at Aron's Tebow Ranch, she is determined to cram a lifetime of living into a few short months. The doctor has told her that she can't count on her remission from leukemia being a permanent one. Their attraction to one another is instantaneous and overwhelming. But when Aron finds out that Libby is innocent - he backs off. He has nothing to offer a girl who deserves white lace and promises. Then Aron catches Libby pleasuring herself in his stock tank and hears her cry out his name - and the heat is on.
Angel Martinez
Heavenly Angel, Divine Creek Ranch
by Heather Rainier
Blurb
Angel Martinez has worked patiently for months to draw the fragile beauty out of her shell, wooing her with gentle kindness and falling for her delightful two-year-old in the process. Teresa left her painful past behind and built a new life for her and her son. She cares deeply for Angel, but is afraid to let down her guard. Just when she thinks she might be able to handle the flirtatious Divine Creek Ranch foreman, a holiday visitor arrives and throws her for a loop. Fresh from a one-night stand, self-confessed 'rodeo slut' bull-rider Joaquin Martinez shows up at his brother's house Christmas Eve, and finds out for himself what love at first sight feels like. She could barely handle one. Now she's got two Martinez brothers after her. Can she forget the past and fall for both her heavenly Angel and his handsome, devilish brother?
Carson MacDonald
A Cowboy for Mom
by Honor James
Blurb
For fifteen years Carson MacDonald has been thinking about the woman that had vanished from his life without a trace. Working his family ranch has kept his days busy but his nights are too long and empty without her there. Carson never forgot his first and only love, no matter how much he tried.

Jennifer MacElroy did what was needed to survive after having her heart broken. But fate is a fickle thing and she’s forced back to her birthplace to take part in training for her newest movie role. Unfortunately it’s on Carson’s ranch. If she’s lucky the new persona she’s taken on as Monica will help her fly under the radar. What she hadn’t counted on was her daughter.

A few hints, a couple of clues and these two are facing off once more. Will they get beyond past hurts or will they lose one another again.
Cord Benedict
Love Under Two Quarterbacks, Lusty, TX
by Cara Covington
Blurb
Ari Stein is certain that romance is nowhere in the cards for her. Carrying the scars from a traumatic childhood, she’s wandered, rootless, until she landed in Lusty. Now her restless spirit has calmed and for the first time since she was teen, she feels safe and at home.

Twins, Cord and Jackson Benedict, have built rather amazing careers in the NFL, earning themselves the moniker, “The Wonder Twins.” Then Jackson takes a hit in training camp and it’s time to start over.

Grandma Kate convinced them to come to Lusty and meet this side of their family. One look at Ari and they know they made the right move—and once they see the way the Lusty branch of their family lives, they know what they want their future to be. Will they succeed in getting Ari to open up and trust them? Or will a specter from her past, and an annoying little pissant from theirs, stop them from finding their happy ever after?

Dean Dixon

Just Shoot Me, The Cowboy Way
by Becky McGraw
Blurb
Tina Montgomery needs to find her Texas Tomcat. Her promotion and livelihood depend on it. That promotion could mean a new life for her, her sister and her niece. It’s a big risk however, because if she fails in her bid to head up a new menswear line at her company, she could lose everything. That’s why finding the perfect model to represent the line has become her sole focus. At the point of thinking she would …never find that man, one with both experience and attitude that shows in his face and eyes, she meets Dean Dixon. His gorgeous eyes tell a story she definitely wants to hear and the man has more attitude than any she’s ever met. Physically he’s perfect for the job. But that attitude she thought she wanted in her cowboy quickly becomes her biggest downfall when she tries to convince the sexy, but hard-hearted rancher to help her.

Dean Dixon is done with women. His cheating ex-wife has shown him just how untrustworthy women are. He has a ranch to run, and a son who might not be his to raise alone. That’s more than enough for any man to handle without dealing with his sister-in-law’s friend who is determined to convince him to model for her company. He has seen what that industry has done to his brother. Dean is a rancher, not a model, and he isn’t about to abandon his family or fall into the same trap his brother had. He stands his ground, until his sister-in-law tells him why Tina needs the promotion she’s wanting so badly, and asks for his help. Hope had bailed him and his family out when they needed her the year prior. How could he refuse to help her now
Heath McCoy
How to Rope a McCoy, Hell Yeah!
by Sable Hunter
Blurb
Is Texas big enough for more McCoys? Hell yeah! Heath McCoy, the oldest cousin of Aron and his brothers spends his days championing his family. He is no stranger to heartbreak, the woman he loved left him at the altar. From that moment on, Heath developed a new attitude - love'em and leave 'em wanting more. Until he meets Cato. Cato is determined to experience all life has to offer. She is deaf, yet very adept at listening with her heart. The moment she lays eyes on Heath, she knows he’s the one man who will mean the world to her. But Heath doesn't want forever, he wants a fling. So, Cato decides to give him what he wants and hope he falls in love with her in the process. She takes a gamble on love and the stakes are high. How do you rope a McCoy? Very carefully. How do you keep him tied? With love.  
J.P. Ryan
Crewel Work, The Tapestry
by Natalie Alder
 Blurb
A successful race horse farm’s trainer is key and William Becker was going to make certain that losing that key neither in the wake of a broken heart involving his daughter nor the sinister acts of another employee was not going to happen to his farm, his legacy.

J.P. Ryan came from little and was left alone in the world at a vulnerable age. The offer to apprentice as a trainer for a prestigious race horse farm had been a fortunate opportunity. But when a jealous barn hand turns sinister and J.P.’s faced with the choice to risk throwing away four years of apprenticing, a place to live and daily meals over his boss’ seventeen year old daughter or to forget about her, the beautiful, sweet girl he wanted, J.P.’s dream job became cruel work.
