Free books! Western Roundup Giveaway Hop #westernroundup

Western Roundup
Giveaway Hop!


romantic novels 
of the 
Old West

Including my series
Lots of books will be given away.  Check the Linky below for even more!  And visit Romancing The West again for more offers on even-numbered days, plus one commenter will win the entire series at the end of the blog hop.

Ah, Those Cowboys
What is it about the rough and tumble men of the Old West that inspires a bad case of twitterpation amongst the ladies?

That Voice
Sam Elliot
It doesn't matter what role Sam Elliot plays, as soon as he opens his mouth and growls those baritone words, we ladies are goners.  His voice is like pouring hot fudge on ice cream.  

The Scenery
Clint Walker
The scenery isn't all that bad, either.  Real men with actual testosterone.  Okay, I admit that Clint Walker was my first love.  I was four years old, and to this day, I haven't seen any man in the movies or real life that can hold a candle to him in the scenery department.  He could sing well, too, and recorded several albums.  When I met him, he looked even better, if that's possible, up close!  Be still my four-year-old heart.

Clint Eastwood
Man With No Name
Oh, yes, the man with dubious morals but whatever mysterious code that is, he sticks to it.  He's hardnosed and doesn't say much, but we don't mind!

More, More, More!
The Western Roundup Giveaway Hop lasts until July 31.
Check RTW often for more chances to win Free Books.

Yes, there are Prizes!
Check back on each even-numbered day for more prizes!  Today, I'm giving away a Kindle copy of:

Much Ado About Marshals
by Jacquie Rogers
Hearts of Owyhee 
Kindle | Print

5 stars from LKGlover: Need a break? This is a FUN book (seriously--when's the last time you read a laugh-out-loud book?)! Turn off the iphone, kick off yer boots (or Jimmy Choos) and let Jacquie Rogers provide that mini-vacation you KNOW you need!

Daisy Gardner wants to be a detective, just like her dime novel heroine, Honey Beaulieu. She does not want to be a farm wife, but that’s what her parents want. So what better solution to her dilemma than to marry the new marshal?

Cole Richards is honest, forthright, and stuck in a situation where he must lie and deceive or he and Bosco might end up as honored guests at a necktie party. That’s why he plays along with being the town marshal. He didn’t count going toe to toe with a lady detective who has marriage on her mind.

5 stars from romantchick: Nancy Drew meets William Shakespeare ...hilarious characters, memorable colloquialisms, a clever, engaging plot and fine writing. All of which recommends Roger's Much Ado About Marshals as everything to do about a charming, well-written romp.

Enter to Win
All you have to do is tell me who was your first cowboy crush.  C'mon, I told you mine! :)  Be sure to include your email address with your comment.  All drawings will be held on July 31.  All who leave comments any time during the Western Roundup Giveaway Hop will be entered to win the grand prize... all three books in the  Hearts of Owyhee  series!

  19. I used to love Rifleman, when I was a kid, he was so cool and Paladance was so mysterious, my dad loved westerns so we saw a lot of them including Rifleman, and

  20. Way, way back I'd have to say Roy Rogers. Later in life it became John Wayne, my Hero. Love him. One of my best memories was getting to meet him in 1966 when he was near here making A movie. And, I got to meet him. Got to talk to him, took a picture with him, and ate lunch with him and the crew. Also, he was nice enough to write a note on a card to my mother who was in the hospital after a heart attack. (Not just sign it). A very, very nice guy. I still watch his movies.
