Chicken Dinner: Opera, Spurs, and Amazing Authors

Just as the holiday rush is finally calming down, we have a little bit of everything for Chicken Dinner today--entertainment, news, and good things to come. Oh, and a winner of Stacey Coverstone's book, A Haunted Twist of Fate.

Sweethearts of the West always has informative articles about the American West. Cowboys appeal to romance readers for lots of reasons, but one big reason is chaps. You gotta love a man in chaps! Last week, SOTW's guest author was Charlotte Raby, who contributed American Cowboy Chaps: Then and Now.
