The last time somebody pointed out that cowboys ride horses, not tricycles, I shot him.
“The last time somebody pointed out that cowboys ride horses, not tricycles, I shot him. Of course, I waited until another gunslinger gunned him down, but nevertheless, I still shot him.”

“When you choose a man who thinks eight seconds is a long time, perhaps you need two of them. Hmm?”
Cat Johnson

Lorelei James
“The more she stared, the happier his dick was to swell with pride, doing a stellar flagpole imitation.

About a year later, Tierney dragged her gaze away from his groin and looked him in the eye. "This is why I was against casual Thursdays. There's always that one person who takes it too far.”
Lorelei James, Wrangled and Tangled

Annie Proulx
“Late in the afternoon, thunder growling, that same old green pickup rolled in and he saw Jack get out of the truck, beat up Resistol tilted back. A hot jolt scalded Ennis and he was out on the landing pulling the door closed behind him. Jack took the stairs two and two. They seized each other by the shoulders, hugged mightily, squeezing the breath out of each other, saying, son of a bitch, son of a bitch, then, and easily as the right key turns the lock tumblers, their mouths came together, and hard, Jack’s big teeth bringing blood, his hat falling to the floor, stubble rasping, wet saliva welling, and the door opening and Alma looking out for a few seconds at Ennis’s straining shoulders and shutting the door again and still they clinched, pressing chest and groin and thigh and leg together, treading on each other’s toes until they pulled apart to breathe and Ennis, not big on endearments, said what he said to his horses and his daughters, little darlin.”
Annie Proulx, Brokeback Mountain

C.J. Box
“Nothing spells trouble like two drunk cowboys with a rocket launcher.”
C.J. Box, Cold Wind

Annie Proulx
“Again the ranch is on the market and they’ve shipped out the last of the horses, paid everybody off the day before, the owner saying, ‘Give them to the real estate shark, I’m out a here,” dropping the keys in Ennis’s hand. He might have to stay with his married daughter until he picks up another job, yet he is suffused with a sense of pleasure because Jack Twist was in his dream.”
Annie Proulx, Brokeback Mountain

Viviana Giorgi
“Maggie chiuse gli occhi e contò sino a dieci.
Uno, due, tre…
Se voleva arrivare a casa di sua sorella prima che facesse notte, non aveva altra scelta che chiedere al cowboy di accompagnarla. Certo, avrebbe sempre potuto optare per il motel e attraversare quelle duecento iarde pullulanti di lupi.
Un altro ululato.
No, non avrebbe potuto.
«Lupi» disse Mitch, il braccio sinistro che sporgeva indolente dal finestrino, il mozzicone del sigaro stretto tra le dita.
«Lupi» ripeté lei con un’alzata di spalle, come se si trattasse di barboncini addestrati. Poi mosse un paio di passi esitanti verso il pick-up. Quell’affare era così alto che dovette allungare il collo e sollevare la testa per parlare al cowboy. «Mi chiedevo…» mormorò vincendo ogni residua resistenza.
Lui rimase immobile, se non per il sopracciglio sinistro che scattò verso l’alto.
«… se per caso tu non potessi darmi uno strappo.»
Lui finse di prendere in considerazione la cosa. Poi, con un altro sbuffo di fumo, disse: «Mi sembrava che avessi rifiutato la mia offerta, dieci minuti fa...».
«Perché non intendevo esserti di disturbo» rispose lei come se si stesse rivolgendo alla duchessa di Kent.
E di fatti lui scoppiò a ridere. «Essermi di disturbo? Dopo avermi assalito come un ninja? Ma sarò magnanimo. Dai, sali.»
Maggie tirò un sospiro di sollievo. Era così stanca e infreddolita che anche quel pick-up scassato le parve per un istante una limousine.
«Dove metto la valigia?»
«Buttala dietro, nel cassone.»
Buttare nel cassone la sua Samsonite rosa, costata una cifra improponibile?
«Preferirei sistemarla in cabina, se non ti spiace.»
«In cabina non c’è posto, qua dietro è pieno di roba. A meno che tu preferisca viaggiare nel cassone e la valigia sul sedile…»
Lei rimase zitta, gli occhi sgranati, per nulla certa che quella fosse solo una battuta.
«Ok, ci penso io» tagliò corto lui, aprendo la portiera e scivolando a terra con un balzo. Afferrò il trolley per la maniglia e, senza un’altra parola, lo fece volare nel cassone.
Il botto risuonò nelle orecchie di Maggie come una granata.
Risistemandosi lo Stetson sulla testa, il cowboy girò intorno al pick-up e con un sorriso esagerato aprì la portiera del passeggero.
«Sali, sorella di Suzie, o vuoi che dia una mano anche a te?»”
Viviana Giorgi, Tutta colpa del vento

Viviana Giorgi
“Bevve un sorso di caffè e si sporse in avanti per ravvivare il fuoco, poi prese un libro dal tavolino e cercò di concentrarsi nella lettura.
Tentativo patetico e inutile.
Pensò allora a come sarebbe stato condividere il ranch con una donna, un pensiero che negli ultimi tempi ritornava spesso.
Pensò a Renée che se ne era andata con Craig Haas.
Pensò a Rosalyn, che gli riscaldava il corpo ma non il cuore.
Poi pensò a Maggie.
A come si era sciolta tra le sue braccia e a come si era sciolto lui quando l’aveva sentita fremere contro di sé.”
Viviana Giorgi, Tutta colpa del vento

Jack Schaefer
“They did not look at each other. They did not say a word to each other... They knew that talk is meaningless when a common knowledge is already there. The silence bound them as no words ever could.”
Jack Schaefer

“Emily swore and he was impressed; he'd never thought to string cocksuckingsonofabitch together in one sentence. He couldn't help himself; the snort of laughter escaped before he could hold it in.”

“Ernie's past friendship. Your debt is to the living.”
Jack Schaefer

C.H. Admirand
“Tyler rounded the hood and opened the door. 'What?' he asked when she grinned at him. 'You've got a slide-over-here-honey seat!' His eyes crinkled with laughter. 'Well, what are you doing all the way over there?”
C.H. Admirand

Victoria Vane
“Oh yeah?” Grady pulled out another chuck of wintergreen Skoal and stuffed it under his lower lip. “There ain’t a bull in the world that can’t be rode, sweetheart—”
“Or a cowboy that can’t be throwed,” Janice finished with a smirk of her own. Although one of the top contenders, Grady needed to be taken down a peg or two and Janice hoped Dirk would be the one to do it.
Victoria Vane, Rough Rider

Catt Ford
“Clay sat up, swinging a leg over Jeff's body to straddle him. He grabbed both wrists and pinned them by Jeff's head, bending closer until they shared a breath between parted lips.

"There's something about you, Jeff. Always something."

"I'm just an ordinary guy --" Jeff stopped when Clay shook his head vigorously.

"You're not. You're special."

"Special how?"

"You taste good.”
Catt Ford, Extreme Bull

Catt Ford
“All right, I figure I got a beating coming. Let's get at it."

"That's not why I came."

"Why did you then?"

"To find out why you did it."

Jeff looked at the floor. "I don't know."

"Want to do it again?”
Catt Ford, Extreme Bull

L.C. Chase
“Man or woman didn't matter. Marty liked men, Kent liked women, and Bridge apparently liked both. But Eric was the one he wanted above all others, and for whatever reason, that felt all kinds of right.

"Shit. I'm Eric-sexual.”
L.C. Chase, Let it Ride

B.J. Daniels
“Jackson couldn't bear to see Allie like this. He pulled her to him and, dropping his mouth to hers, kissed her. She leaned into him, letting him draw her even closer as the kiss deepened. Fireworks lit the night, booming in a blaze of glittering light before going dark again. Desire ignited his blood. He wanted Allie like he'd never wanted anyone or anything before.”
B.J. Daniels, Wedding at Cardwell Ranch

Larry McMurtry
“You can scare off a lot of cowboys just by looking mean, I guess.”
Larry McMurtry, The Last Kind Words Saloon

“It's the most beautiful thing I have ever seen."
He laughed. "No, honey, that would be you.”

Tamara Hoffa
“Meg was all natural. She didn’t wear a lot of makeup, but her skin was so smooth, dotted with angel kisses, as his mother called freckles. He wanted to trace those freckles with his tongue, kiss each one and see if they covered her whole body or only parts kissed by the sun.”
Tamara Hoffa

Caroline Fyffe
“She'd known from the moment she said "I do" that she really truly did.”

“The English have a proverb, 'Conscience makes cowboys of us all'.”
