Guest Post with Sarah M. Anderson -- Cowboy Boots!

As you know, we've had Sarah on the blog before (guest post), and reviewed her books a few times (ahem: here, here, here, and here). You could say we're fans of her books! :) 

Today she's got a great guest post, including a "naked cowboy", as she promotes her newest release, WHAT A RANCHER WANTS! 



Award-winning author Sarah M. Anderson may live east of the Mississippi River, but her heart lies out west on the Great Plains. With a lifelong love of horses and two history teachers for parents, it wasn’t long before her characters found themselves out in South Dakota among the Lakota Sioux.  She loves to put people from two different worlds into new situations and to see how their backgrounds and cultures take them someplace they never thought they’d go.

When not helping out at school or walking her rescue dogs, Sarah spends her days having conversations with imaginary cowboys and American Indians, all of which is surprisingly well-tolerated by her wonderful husband and son. You can learn more about Sarah at

Does a Cowboy Wear His Boots to Bed?

I think we can all agree that the image of a woman wearing very little besides a sky-high pair of stilettos is sexy.

Well, maybe not me in stilettos because I would wobble and wince from the sheer pain of my feet trying to break away from the rest of my body, but other people plus stilettos minus clothing?


And heroes think so, too. How many times has a hero said, Leave on the heels? Plenty.  In romance novels, at least, it’s an easy thing to accomplish. Women are wearing a dress—something slinky and backless, no doubt. They strip for the hero by simply unzipping the dress and letting it fall away. Boom. Naked heroine in heels. Easy as pie.

And who can blame those heroes and heroines? Stilettos make the legs longer, everything thinner. Me-ow. It’s enough to make me wish I could stand in the danged things. Alas.

But what about us, ladies? Do we get the same thrill out of a man wearing nothing but his boots?

I have to say, it doesn’t happen very often for a few reasons.

Have you ever tried to pull a pair of jeans off over a pair of boots? You’re doomed to failure before you get those suckers half-down. Even if you’re wearing bell bottoms big enough to float a battleship, you’re not getting denim over boots. Trying will only make you look foolish and kill any sexy thoughts you’ve been having.

Okay, so you have to take the jeans off before you get the boots off. Then what? Do you put them back on? You’re wasting valuable lovin’ time here, heroes!

The other alternative is no easier. Pulling a pair of jeans ON over a pair of boots will try real hard to break one or both of your ankles. So there’s no putting the boots on first.

Basically, unless you can come up with a REALLY convoluted set-up where your hero is naked but has good cause to put his boots on—and nothing else—you’re not going to find a naked cowboy wandering around in nothing but his boots.

Unless you happen to find yourself in New York City. Staring at this guy:

Yeah…Men, maybe you SHOULD walk around in nothing but your boots from here on out.

It seems logistically impossible to have the boots on. Although, he could be woken up during the night to check something out, so he puts on his books. Then he has them on when he comes back to bed for round 2.

Hey Mary! Yeah, that's pretty much the only scenario I have come up with--something startles him out of bed!

Messi blasts Barca official

Agen Bola terpercaya reported,Barcelona star Lionel Messi has slammed the club’s vice-president and insisted he has not asked for a new contract.
Messi, winner of the Ballon d’Or for the past four years, is currently sidelined with a hamstring injury.
The 26-year-old Argentinian signed a five-year contract in February, but is allegedly not the highest earner after Neymar joined in the close-season.
Stories emanating from Spain had suggested that Messi wanted a new deal, but the player has completely refuted those reported by Indo Eleven.
And he also blasted vice-president Javier Faus, who publicly questioned whether he deserved a new deal earlier this month.
“Mr Faus is a person who knows nothing about football and wants to run the club like a business, and it is not,” Messi told Catalan radio station Rac1.
“Barcelona is one of the biggest teams in the world and should be represented by the best leaders also.

Nani-Vucinic swap on the cards

Agen Bola terpercaya reported,that Juventus could offer striker Mirko Vucinic to Manchester United in exchange for winger Nani.
The Bianconeri are hot on the trail of the Portuguese attacker and they are keen on luring him to Turin in the January transfer window.
And with Manchester United reportedly keen on striker Mirko Vucinic, they are set to propose a swap deal to the Red Devils.
The Montenegrin forward is no longer a first team regular at Juventus and he is reportedly looking to leave the club at the earliest reported by Indo Eleven.
Given that Nani is also struggling for playing time at Old Trafford, the proposed swap deal could be the best option for all the interested parties.
Unlike their English counterparts, Juventus are cruising towards another Serie A title, having already created a five-point cushion at the top of the standings, with the Bianconeri 4/9 to extend the winning run at Atalanta next weekend.

Di Maria shows his commitment at Real Madrid

Agen Bola terpercaya reported, Angel Di Maria, a winger of Real Madrid, has vowed to do everything for his club amid speculation over his future at the club.

However, Di Maria has signalled his ongoing commitment to the club, as reported by Agen Judi terpercaya
"I'm very happy with the ovation from the people. I've shown that I will give everything for this shirt and will do so until the end," the winger said.
"We did what we were trained to do. Pressing a lot and playing at 100 per cent. We knew that they play intensely and we should be able to do the same, but double."
"There is still a game. To progress, we must do a good job there," he added.
