Release day: Rough Rider
Today is the official release of Rough Rider by Victoria Vane (ebook, Sourcebooks). Here’s the blurb:
Janice Combes has two loves, bucking bulls and Dirk Knowlton. But Dirk only has eyes for a dazzling rodeo queen. How can Janice ever compete while mired ankle-deep in manure? Exchanging playful banter with Dirk is all Janice can expect-until the stormy night he knocks on her door dripping wet and needing a place to crash.
Dirk Knowlton is living the cowboy dream. Life should be good-roping, branding, backing broncs, riding bulls, but there’s a void he can’t seem to fill. After getting hung up by a bull, he wonders if this is really the life he wants. Restless and rebellious, he bolts…but there’s a certain cowgirl he can’t forget.
When a battle-scarred Dirk returns to his Montana ranch he’s determined to hang on at any cost. Janice has come back home to lick her own wounds. When old dreams turn to dust, can two wary hearts take another chance on love?
Victoria dropped by today to tell us about this book:
Rough Rider picks up where Slow Hand leaves off with Dirk Knowlton struggling to hold onto his family ranch and put his shattered life back together. Although this book can be read as a standalone, the character arc is best appreciated by reading both, as there are relationships and plot threads that carry over from one book to the next. Highly recommended for those who appreciate a little bit of heartache and a hard-earned happy ever after.
