Howdy, Ma’am by Mary J. McCoy-Dressel


Returning from a break after suffering a tremendous loss, bull rider Caulder McCutchen has a good chance of winning the converted buckle this year, knowing he has to ride harder, go bigger, or go home. Winning consumes him, so he hires a feisty photographer to travel the bull riding circuit with him for a season. A little extra publicity can’t hurt, and she’s easy on the eyes. But when he finds himself passionately attracted to her, will this sassy little Italian prove to be just what his claim to fame needs—or a disastrous distraction?

Velia Armano found the strength to walk away from an abusive husband. She moves from Chicago to Tucson, Arizona and opens her own photography studio, but has she seen the last of her ex? Six months into her well-ordered life alone, a hunky cowboy saunters in with his howdy, ma’am and flame blue eyes, offering a job any photographer would find hard to refuse. She accepts his offer and discovers they both have their own obstacles to overcome. Struggling to resist his heated embraces and gentle nature on the tour, she hopes to find the right answer before the season ends—to remain in her self-appointed exile or give in to a happily ever after.

When the season ends, who wins the real prize?
