Vivian Arend is hosting a Cowboy Countdown Contest and she’s popped in today to ask us to join her in getting ready for her latest release, Rocky Mountain Heat coming August 31st to Liquid Silver Books. And she’s got a question for us:

Do you own a cowboy hat and boots?

T.A.: I’ll answer first. I have a cowboy hat. A very nice black one with a black and silver hat band. 🙂 No boots though. Hmm…wonder if I should get some chaps. lol

Welcome to the Six Pack Ranch, where one sweet young thing plus the Coleman boys equals trouble with a capital T.

Six Pack Ranch, Book 1

Blake Coleman is old enough to know that acting on impulse causes nothing but a heap of trouble. But when trouble’s a blonde wearing a cowboy hat with slim legs that go on forever, what’s a man to do? Wanting the sweet girl next door is just wrong. Hell, he was the one that taught her to ride a horse and now all he can think about is riding her. The responsible thing to do is keep his hands off.

Jaxi has other plans for his hands, and his heart. She may have considered Blake a big brother once but that was a long time ago. She’s all grown up now and ready to convince him that she’s just what he’s been waiting for.

Add the complication of two sexy younger brothers who have suddenly noticed Jaxi and things heat up fast. Blake’s gonna have to decide if a little trouble is worth fighting for.

    hi! Just finished Nick of time! 🙂 I love it! When are we going to read Jess and Pavel's story? I cant wait. Thanks TA. Love your stories!

  2. Blaidd-Drwg says:

    Hell yeah I got cowboy stuff. Just no cowboy to show it off too.

    But I own boots. Got a hat, though my chaps didn't survive Frenchie (or French Fry, Fat Boy) the always hungry Fjord horse. He worked on my hat too.

    Good luck with the new book Vivian!

  3. Sioux says:

    Not about cowboys but… Nick of Time is LIVE on Amber Allure and is now on my Kindle. Who hoo!

  4. Nicole says:

    I have 2 black hats – 2 white hats – and black boots.

    And when the hubs puts the black hat on …. ohhh YUM.

  5. Gina Marina says:

    and we all come out of the woodwork

    I have a hat & boots – haven't worn them in forever. My husband has chaps, O_O

    um, does the bullwhip get me extra points? 😉

    book sounds great!

  6. Anonymous says:

    Wooo! Hot Cowboys. Thanks TA and Viv.

    I don't have either. I'm just not a cowgirl. Doesn't mean I don't like looking at cowboys, cuz boy howdy, I sure do! lol


  8. Brenda says:

  9. Liz says:

    I have the hat, the boots and the lariat plus a horse I can borrow

  10. Karin says:

    Sadly, I have neither a cowboy hat nor boots. And the funny thing is that a lot of my cousin's friends from back east (on the East Coast of the US) think that everyone where I live in Denver is a cowboy and owns those things. lol

  11. Crystal Kauffman says:

    Oh my gawd that picture is hot. **fanning self**

  12. flchen1 says:

    Sadly no. And given my general lack of style/taste, I'd need quite a bit of help choosing those… maybe those cowboys can give me some pointers 😉

  13. Babyblue22 says:

    I don't have either :-(!
    But I'd love to have my own cowboy personal cowboy who wears them for me!


  14. Kathy says:

    I couldn't live without my cowboy boots, cowboy hats, western style shirts, and western belt! I even have western style sandals.

    I love your books, TA!

  15. Armenia says:

    I have boots but no hat. Its kind of hard to dance with a hat on when you're 2-steppin.

  16. Kathy K says:

    No hat, no boots… but the cowboys, yep those I'd make room for!
    Uh, never mind; not sure where I'd keep 'em that my hubby wouldn't trip over them…. *grin*

    And I sure do enjoy the pic up top… YUM-my!

  17. joder says:

    I have a hat but no boots. I use to have boots but they got wore out since I've had them for twelve years.

  18. Sweet Vernal Zephyr says:

    I have a cheap pair of boots and hat… and let me tell you! Hubby does not care how much they cost, just that he likes the look! I get to be his cowgirl…. *evil smile*

  19. Bella says:

    Nope — no cowboy hat or boots. Some nice motorcycle boots, though, does that count?

    TA and Viv, those are some really *HAWT* cowboys! Way to start off the weekend right!

    O, and TA — chaps? GO FOR IT! 😉

    Happy Friday all!

  20. Heather B. says:

    Another picture that makes me have to remember what I'm supposed to be anwering.

    Oh yeah, boots & hat. I have cowboy books, they are distressed leather ropers. I have had them for several years and love them.

  21. Blanche says:

    I don't have the hat or boots!! Hubby does though!:) I would love to get some boots……hat… not so much since I look like a goof in hats! 🙂

  22. Robin L. says:

    Everyone in our family has cowboy boots! I have a hat, but it's too bendy and always looks stupid, so I don't wear it.

  23. mamasand2 says:

    Sorry, no cowboy boots or hat. I'd love to have them if they were worn by a hawt cowboy and I could have him too.


  24. booklover0226 says:

    I used to have boots….many, many years ago. Gee… and I thought I was cool and hip then, too. LOL

  25. Melissa Bradley says:

    You go for those chaps, TA! The only cowboy thing I own is Grandpa's bolo tie. He got it New Mexico on a vacation in 1957. It's very precious to me. I love me the cowboys, though.

  26. Rhonda says:

    Viv, what are you doing with my cowboys back?

    Yes, I have both! The hat is George Strait's but I LOVE IT. Hubby caught it for me at a concert (we liked to never make it out of the place).

    TA, go for the chaps.

  27. Janis says:

    Those cowboys are hot! Thanks for the pick me up this morning. T.A., you need to get yourself a pair of boots.

    I have two nice hats, one black and one almost a cream color with a brown ribbon around the seam. I have a work hat that dirty used to keep the sun away with it's hay season, and I have a brown Fedora – more Indiana Jones style.

    As for boots, I have several pair in the following colors – black, gray, red, brown, fuchsia, and navy blue.

  28. Viv Arend says:


    I hoped to find out that TA had a hat at least. Need a nice hat to wear when you're writing about sweet cowboys!

    And yeah, I have both- only one pair of shit-kickers now, and one hat. Used to have more at one time…

    Thanks for sharing TA!

  29. Lisa J says:

    I have boots, but when I moved three years ago the hat went to Goodwill.

  30. Jen says:

    I have boots and a hat from a vacation I took at the Marlboro ranch in Montana. Love me the Cowboys!

  31. Judy says:

    No boots anymore. I use to. I still own my cowboy hat. It is blue with the feather band.
    Love the cowboys!!

  32. Amy M says:

    No boots, or hat or chaps. Nothing too much cowboy, well I guess that would be cowgirl, in my house. Wishful thinking I guess 🙂

  33. Jambrea says:

    Go for the chaps TA!!! lol

    Viv's cowboy's are HOT!

    I don't have a hat or boots. I have some combat boots, but those aren't the same. heehee

  34. Alison K says:

    I've got a hat that I bought when I was in Canada, its black, so not very practical for the hot Australian summers I suffer through, cause your head heats up to fast!

  35. Book Junkie says:

    Boots and a hat! Yeehaw!

  36. booklover1335 says:

    No boots, or hat, but I love me some chaps…not on me of course, on the cowboy.
