The military tale behind the writing of ROUGH STOCK

Years ago, while my Army consultant was helping me with my Red, Hot & Blue series, he casually said, "Hey, my Bravo team leader used to be a rodeo cowboy before he joined the Army. Is that a story you can use?" Of course my answer was, "Hell, yes! And why didn't you tell me this before?" That's how the characters in Rough Stock were born. Two cowboys, growing up together, both in love with the same girl, the farmer's daughter, but life takes the three in different directions. One becomes a champion bronc rider. One becomes a career soldier, stationed in Germany and then deployed to the war zone. One attends college and makes a career in New York City. Events bring them back together, years later. There are issues to be resolved, and scars to heal both internal and external, but the love that began years before is still there sizzling just below the surface. That's the story of Rough Stock, which mixes my two favorite genres, military and cowboys. Check it out if you like men who are equally comfortable in either cowboy or combat boots.

ROUGH STOCK by Cat Johnson

The heart wants what it wants…

Bronc riders Mason and Clay have shared both good times and bad as best friends, but they never expected to share their boss’s daughter, April. Can two friends love one woman, body and soul, without it destroying them?

The heart wants what it wants. For April that means not choosing between the two cowboys she loves, no matter how wrong it may seem inviting them both into her bed.

Life sends the three lovers in opposite directions, but a devastating injury brings them all together again. Their relationship now is no less bittersweet—or complicated—than before. Once severed, old ties leave scars that are tough to heal…

Warning: When you choose a man who thinks 8 seconds is a long time, perhaps you need two of them. In other words: Watch out, this book contains hot ménage sex with two cowboys and the woman they love.
