Interview: Donna Michaels author of Her Forever Cowboy @Donna_Michaels #RLFblog #ModernWestern

Her Forever Cowboy 
Title Her Forever Cowboy/Harland County Series/Book Four: Kevin
Genre Contemporary Western
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Single mother, Shayla Ryan, longs to put down roots to create a stable environment for her baby girl and her younger sister, but the threat of her abusive, ex-con father finding them has made that almost impossible. Her newest residence in Harland County, however, holds a lot of appeal, especially in the form of a Casanova cowboy with eye-catching good looks and easy charm. Those two qualities took her down the wrong road before, and though the sexy cowboy interferes with her pulse, she can't let her heart get in the way of the safety of her family, or give it to someone who doesn't believe in forever.
If there's one thing software company vice president, Kevin Dalton, loves more than puzzles, it's women. Size, shape, race doesn't matter as long as they don't want a relationship--he's not looking to repeat the past, and more than happy to remain single. Until two beautiful redheads drop him to his knees--one with her cutie-pie smile, the other with her elbow. Too bad the elbow-toting beauty is both hot and puzzling. A killer combination too strong to resist. And without realizing it, the redheads slowly rewrite the code around his heart.
But when the danger from Shayla's past shows up, can he rise to the challenge to keep them safe...and really be what they need? A forever cowboy?

Interview with Donna Michaels

Why did you write this book?
I wrote Kevin's story- Her Forever Cowboy, because it's the fourth book in my Harland County series, and frankly, Kevin demanded it. lol The Casanova cowboy has sat back and watched three of his buddies get their own books and felt it was his turn.
What is your favorite genre to read?
The very same I love to write, Romance through the H's--Hot, Humorous & Heartwarming.
What is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
My favorite character from fiction is Ty Garrison from Jill Shalvis' Lucky In Love, her fourth book in her wonderful Lucky Harbor Series. I'm a sucker for a tortured hero, and if he's military to boot, all the better.
Do you enjoy films and/or TV shows? Which are you favorite?
Yes, both! Movies--I love romantic comedies, sci-fi, action, fantasy, comedies, suspense, you name it, I love it. Favorites are many, but I'll try to narrow it down. LOTR: The Fellowship of the Ring, Die Hard 3 With a Vengeance, Two Weeks Notice, The Whole Nine Yards, and Frequency. As for TV shows, wow, again, a lot. Love NCIS, Supernatural, Once Upon A Time, Faceoff, Ghost Hunters, Sherlock and Doctor Who!
What are you working on at the moment, and what are we likely to see from you in the coming months?
I'm currently working on three books. The first is a novella for The Wild Rose Press tentatively titled Cowboy Payback. It's the sequel to Cowboy-Sexy I released with them last year. This is former Marine Captain Brett Brennan's story on how he has to deal with the fallout of the practical joke he played on his Navy SEAL twin Finn, telling everyone his brother was engaged to a female Marine. Now, the tables are turned and Brett finds himself in a fake engagement to his beautiful former corporal. The second book is the next one in my Harland County Series, Book Five/Jace-Her Healing Cowboy. Jace is a doctor and also part of the Texas National Guard. He has a great bedside manner, is happy to help his friends, but like any soldier, he has his own healing to do, and a pretty visitor from Colorado dishes just what he needs. And finally, I'm also working on the first book in a Harland County spin-off series-Citizen Soldier Series--titled Wyne and Dine, about the brother of the heroine in the third Harland book--Her Uniform Cowboy. Brandi's brother Sgt. Benjamin Wyne will kick off the series by becoming the first of four Wyne brothers to find the right woman.
Please tell us about your latest book.
Computer programmer Kevin Dalton loves women, but avoids relationships and getting personal. Until he meets a resilient single mother and her sweet baby girl who find their way past the security around his heart. Shayla Ryan is tired of running from her ex-con father and wants to stay in Harland County to put down roots. Too bad there's a combustible chemistry between her and the Casanova cowboy. He doesn't do relationships and she's looking for forever.


"Grab the wrap and tape," the redheaded ordered as she led them to the door.
Kevin swiped the first aid stuff off the counter and wanted to tell her he could walk. He should tell her. That would stop the heat. But he couldn't.
Because that would stop the heat.
Apparently, he was a masochist. Who knew?
She opened the door, and at this point, her curves felt so damn good molded to his side he didn't care if anyone saw them. But they didn't as he directed the surprisingly helpful woman to his room at the end of the hall, allowing her to only take some of his weight. He was not an invalid, but he enjoyed every bit of her softness snuggled close.
Yeah, he was a jerk. But a happy one.
"Let's get you on the bed, then I'll fetch some ice," she said.
Before his brain had the chance to stumble over the bed scenario, she left him alone on the mattress with more than one ache in his body.
Which was plumb crazy.
He'd been with many women, and occasionally more than one at a time, so why did this cantankerous redhead get to him so bad? The whole night was nothing if not confusing.
"Okay," she said, returning a minute later with a clear bag of ice, brows knit together, gaze and stride full of purpose. "Now, where were we?"
A smile tugged at his lips. "Is this where you tell me to get naked?"
She stopped dead a foot away and blinked. "No, you goof, but hey, if it'll make you feel better, have at it."
The bag of ice hit him full force in the chest, but he caught it with ease before it fell to the floor. "Then, can you get naked?"
