Cowboy's Sweetheart @stephanieberget #RLFblog #western #romance

Welcome Stephanie Berget author of Cowboy's Sweetheart, a new Western Romance.

Why did you write this book?
This is the third in my Sugar Coated Cowboys series. Byron appeared briefly in the first two. I became intrigued by this big, strong man who was a loner, frightened of getting too close to people, but who longed to have someone to love.

What is your favorite genre to read?
Small town romance with a touch of humor.

Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
That would have to be Davie Dempsey from Jennifer Crusie's Faking It. I also loved the heroine in that book, Matilda Goodnight.

What are you working on at the moment?
I'm working on a western romance set in Greenleaf, Idaho about a Barrel Racer and a Saddle Bronc Rider. It's a second chance romance with the working title, Mavis and Butthead. LOL

What books will we see from you in coming months?
Well, Mavis' book by the first of June and later this fall, the sequel to Radio Rose.

Please tell us about your latest book.
Genre Western Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Byron Garrett has found peace as the foreman on the Circle W ranch. He's far from his controlling father and the man's demands that Byron make him proud as a pro football player. Born a city boy, he's found his passion with the land, his horses and the cowboy way of life. He's found all he needs and it doesn't include a woman or the complications that come with love. At least, not until a bubbly artist shows up and does her best to tear down the corral he's built around his heart.
Vivi Beckett is searching for a place that feels like home. After traveling the country, she's finally found it in the beautiful wilds of Oregon. With the inheritance left her when she was orphaned, she'll buy a place to live and create her art. But after meeting Byron, Vivi suspects her dream alone won't be enough to bring her happiness … not unless he's at her side.
All of Vivi's dreams are at risk when she discovers her inheritance is in jeopardy. She needs help, but Byron's past has left him unwilling to give anyone power over his life. The ghosts in hers have left her desperate to be needed.
Will Byron be willing to join her on a different and perhaps even better path?

Romance beneath a rodeo moon. That's what Stephanie Berget had in mind when she began writing, to add a realistic view of rodeo and ranching to her Western Romance.
She was born loving horses, developing a lifelong love of rodeo when she married her Bronc Rider. They traveled to rodeos throughout the Northwest while she ran barrels and her cowboy rode bucking horses.
Stephanie and her husband have three adult children and several grandchildren. They live on a farm located along the Oregon/Idaho border, where they raise hay, horses and cattle, with the help of Cisco, the wonder horse, Dizzy Dottie, the Border Collie, and two Munchkin cats, Magic and Martin.
