Back to the drawing board…
Friday, September 16th, 2011

I LOVE that you all enthusiastically voted on yesterday’s poll. Studs ‘n’ Spurs is the overwhelming favorite. Too bad I can’t use the title! As one reader pointed out to me yesterday, it’s a great title, but Cat Johnson’s using it for a Cowboy series she’s writing—which would be awkward in the extreme if I went forward with the title for reasons that will be apparent when I make the announcements in a couple of months! Lips zipped!

Sooooo, I need another title to give my editor—something just as catchy, just as “cowboy”. Wanna help me? Remember, that grab bag prize is still on the table and you need to keep commenting anyway!

This is what I sent to my editor in the first place. Let’s not spend any more time on these:

* Sex in the Saddle
* Rawhide
* Ride a Cowboy (way too over-used)
* Studs in Spurs
* I Like My Cowboys Naked

So…we’re off! Give me your suggestions. No idea is a stupid one when you’re brainstorming! Think—cowboys, leather, horses, attire, ropes, saddles…

    I thought I would give this a shot but saw that a couple of people had suggested a couple that I had…Cowboy Up! or Saddle Up! But, I still really do like them. So how about these. Even if you think they are horrible, maybe they will spark something else for someone. Here goes… :)

    Bedroll Bound or Bound in his Bedroll
    Branded by his Love
    Her Bronco needed Busting
    Cowboys do it with Leather or Cowboys do it with Chaps on!
    Roughin’ it in Rawhide

    Okay, that’s it for now. I’ll keep thinking because this is fun. :)

    * I like the idea of a barefoot cowboy in tight fitting jeans but I don’t know quite how to say it (this might give you a idea though)
    * So many cowboys, so little rope
    *Down and dirty

    Rustlers..
    Wrangler Boys
    Saddle Wranglers
    Studs and chaps

    Rough Riders comes to mind but I know that Lorelei James has that as a series….Shadow wranglers I believe is another series but by a different author…I had a few others but they were taken already. Will keep poundering it…B-)

    How about That’s Bucking Hot! I can just see the cover now. A man, in jeans and chaps, in mid buck in the areana. A hot woman standing off to the side cheering him on, sucking a bright red lollipop! Tee hee!
