About the Author
Early days of reading romance novels and women's fiction laid the groundwork for Mary to take up the pen and write her own memorable love stories where love always wins. Her novels are emotional and compelling, and characters don't have an easy time getting what they want, but their reward is sexy and sweet. In a lighter style Mary prefers to write more romantic and sensual love stories. She loves to write stories with strong family ties, lasting friendships, gentlemen heroes with a touch of bad, and feisty women who know how to handle them.
Her home is in the Great Lake Basin area in the U.S.A. Two grown sons and an Australian Shepherd fur-baby dog complete her family. Mary loves communicating with readers and friends. She also has a mailing list for readers who want to be notified of new releases and important book updates. Visit her website for more information.
Interview with Mary J. McCoy-Dressel
Why did you write this book?
Dane Carlson wouldn’t be quiet until he got his own story. Of the Cowboy’s Own Accord is about the third and youngest brother in my Double Dutch Ranch Series: Love at First Sight. Since this is a series, I wanted each brother to have their own book. Dane’s story definitely had to be told.
What is your favorite genre to read?
I like reading a variety of contemporary romance genres—romantic suspense, military, and an occasional erotic romance, but my favorite is contemporary western romance. Love those cowboys.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
Darn! Even picking one of my own would be difficult. I began reading romance novels with Kathleen E. Woodiwiss and Rosemary Rogers. Yes, way back then. In truth, I’ve read and enjoyed too many books to choose just one favorite character. I call most of them my favorite by time I get to the end of a book.
What are you working on at the moment, and will see from you in coming months?
Due to being sick recently and preparing to move, I’m supposed to be taking a break, but I began two books that I know readers are waiting for. The first is the fifth book in the Double Dutch Ranch Series, and the other is book three in the Bull Rider Series. When life mellows out, I’ll dedicate my time to one of those books instead of trying to work on both at the same time. More than likely, book three in the Bull Rider Series will be that book. If only my characters from the ranch will leave me alone long enough. This is doubtful.
Please tell us about your latest book.
Of the Cowboy’s Own Accord is the fourth book in this sensual western romance series and numbered three. How can it be number three when this is the fourth book? I wrote a mid-length novel numbered 1.5 in the series—a follow-up to book one.
Army Ranger Dane Carlson never means to fall in love before leaving for another tour of duty, but unexpectedly, he does. While deployed, he finds himself being sent home early to the family ranch to make a heartrending decision. Little does he know he isn’t the only one making decisions. His first priority is to rekindle the flame after losing communication with Gracelyn Clark. The woman who owns his heart and has since the moment their gaze connects. But now, nothing is the same as when they met.
The first round of news is surprise enough, yet Gracelyn continues to release shocking information detrimental to their future. Can they make it work after so few days together seven months ago? Adjusting to many new things in his life isn’t easy as it is, so to pull himself back to the man he’s become, could be the biggest test of all—in order to protect his own.
Challenges abound even as Dane and Gracelyn come to terms with the decisions they’ve made. Whatever tomorrow brings, their only choice is acceptance—to take one day at a time and face life as it comes.
