"How To Kiss A Cowboy is rich with characters, dialog and insight. Kennedy's characters are sexy, smart, troubled, flawed — real."—Fresh Fiction

The last person barrel racer Suze Carlyle wants to see on her doorstep is the man who ended her career, but Saddle Bronc Champion Brady Caine wants to make up for his mistake.

Winning comes naturally to bronc rider Brady Caine. Ruggedly handsome, careless and charismatic, the rodeo fans adore him and the buckle bunnies are his for the taking. He's riding high when he lands an endorsement deal with Lariat Western Wear that pairs him up with champion barrel racer Suze Carlyle.

When a stupid move on Brady's part lands Suze in the hospital, her career in tatters, it's a whole new game for both of them. Brady is desperate to help Suze rebuild her life, but he's the last person she wants around now. Suze's got plenty of grit and determination—learning to trust Brady again is a very different matter.

"Realistic and romantic... Kennedy's forte is in making relationships genuine and heartfelt as she exposes vulnerabilities with tenderness and good humor." —Booklist STARRED review

Sidelined by a career-ending injury, rodeo cowboy Ridge Cooper feels trapped at his family's remote Wyoming ranch. He meets Sierra Dunn, who has no plans to stick around, but can he change her mind?

Desperate to find an outlet for the passion he used to put into competing, he takes on the challenge of teaching his roping skills to five troubled ten-year-olds in a last-chance home for foster kids, and finds it's their feisty supervisor who takes the most energy to wrangle.

When social worker Sierra Dunn seeks an activity for the rebellious kids at Phoenix House, she soon learns she's not in Denver anymore. Sierra is eager to get back home to her inner-city work, and the plan doesn't include forming an attachment in Wyoming-especially not to a ruggedly handsome and surprisingly gentle local rodeo hero.

Sparks fly when a sexy cowboy collides with a determined city girl out in a West filled with quirky characters and sizzling romance. Acclaimed for delivering "a fresh take on the traditional contemporary Western," Joanne Kennedy's books might just be your next great discovery!

Being a Cowboy is All He Knows...But No Cowboy Can Rein Her In.

Bronc-buster Mack Boyd can ride a wild stallion to a standstill, but he can't say no when his family prevails on him to come home and help run the ranch. The last person he expects to find there is a high-class Easterner like Cat Crandall.

When Cat Crandall gives up a lucrative advertising job to follow her artistic dreams, she's thinking Paris, Tuscany—not the vast and lonely open country of Wyoming.
