Jeannette Walls
“The way Mom saw it, women should let menfolk do the work because it made them feel more manly. That notion only made sense if you had a strong man willing to step up and get things done, and between Dad's gimp, Buster's elaborate excuses, and Apache's tendency to disappear, it was often up to me to keep the place from falling apart. But even when everyone was pitching in, we never got out from under all the work. I loved that ranch, though sometimes it did seem that instead of us owning the place, the place owned us.”
Jeannette Walls, Half Broke Horses

“Cowgirl Courage isn't the lack of fear, but the courage to take action in the face of fear.”
J.H. Lee

Elizabeth Otto, Tempting the Cowboy

Shannon Noelle Long
“Cowboy Rodeo was a very simple man. He liked his life simple. He liked his ranch full of animals, he liked the breeze across the plains, and he liked when the sun rose and set. He liked strong, cold whiskey and the stars at night.

Cowboy Rodeo realized at that moment he also really, really liked corsets and black pencil skirts that showed off the curve of the hip.”
Shannon Noelle Long, Second Coming

Elizabeth  Otto
“What I want the most right damn now it to forget, for one day, that I’m your boss so I can make love to you with no regrets and no what-ifs.”
Elizabeth Otto, Tempting the Cowboy

“The night sky is filled brimful as a night sky can be, lit brightly as it is with clusters of planets and pulsating stars and marriages of galaxies, all of it within a wobble of dust and gas and debris unseen. There are the Dippers Little and Big tonight, a lovely Pleiades, and a throbbing red star out like a tiny heart. This is the stuff of which we are made, I say to Son, all that is of us above us. We stand together looking upward, our mouths hung open as if to swallow what's above down and into us. Looking out at the past in its far distance, where from there, he we are not.”
Susan Froderberg, Old Border Road

“Stallions," Frank said, "they're fightin' over a girl. - DANIEL'S ESPERANZA”
Veronica Randolph Batterson, Daniel's Esperanza

Carol Devine
“You are speaking of something sacred, something holy. Love is patient and kind. It does not envy or boast. It casts out pride, selfishness and anger. It keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres and never fails.”
Carol Devine, Man of the Land

Christina Engela
“The Imperial Senate, ever conscious of the weight of public opinion resting on the tip of the pencil come voting day, wanted to be fair and just – or at least appear that way. Meanwhile, back at the ranch, there was little love lost between Imperial troops and the locals who viewed each other with little short of open hostility, and often through the sighting devices attached to weaponry of various diverse descriptions.”
Christina Engela, Dead Beckoning

Carolyn Brown
“One hand went around her shoulders and the other one tipped her chin up. For several seconds he lost himself in her blue eyes and then his lips found hers in a lingering kiss and both her arms went instinctively around his neck.

“I’ve wanted to do that all morning,” he said.

“I’ve wanted you to do that all morning,” she whispered. “I guess we don’t need to talk about this thing anymore now.”

“I’m ready to do lots of things, Annie Rose. Talk is not anywhere on the list.”
Carolyn Brown, How to Marry a Cowboy
