Release day: A Cowboy’s Duty
Today is the official release of A Cowboy’s Duty by Marin Thomas (mass market paperback, Harlequin American Romance). Here’s the blurb:
That’s what Dixie Cash learned from her mother. That and fathers don’t stick around. She’s pretty independent, and doesn’t need help from her baby’s daddy, sexy rodeo rider and ex-soldier, Gavin Tucker. But he seems determined to do right by her. Just as Dixie starts to imagine together they might be a family, tragedy strikes—and Gavin shows his true colors. She knew he wasn’t honorable!
After what Gavin went through in Afghanistan, he was more than happy to lose himself in the rodeo circuit—and in sweet Dixie’s arms. But doing the right thing can be hard sometimes, and when Dixie—Gavin’s lifeline—doesn’t need him anymore, he’s at a loss. His heart still longs for Dixie, though he’s not sure he deserves a second chance…
Marin dropped by today to tell us a little about the book:
A Cowboy’s Duty is the 5th book in my ongoing Rodeo Rebels series for Harlequin American Romance and the second book of three that highlights women’s bull riding. I admit women’s bull riding is an unusual angle for a romance, but the sport allowed me to create very strong heroines—both mentally and physically—as well as giving each of them a unique motivation for riding bulls. In A Cowboy’s Duty, I bring together Dixie Cash and Gavin Tucker, a former military solider struggling with PTSD. Their road to happy-ever-after is not an easy one. After what Gavin witnesses in war, he doesn’t believe he deserves happiness, love or a family, but Dixie’s strength and courage convince Gavin that she’s strong enough to stand by his side through good and bad and a whole lot of healing.
