Today we're welcoming author Cynthia D'Alba to Heroes and Heartbreakers to talk about a subject very near and dear to her (and our!) hearts: cowboys. Cynthia's latest book, Texas Tango, is the second in her Texas Montgomery Mavericks series, and includes a fake wedding, a doctor who doesn't want to settle down, and a cowboy with a dream. Thanks for being here, Cynthia!
Hi all. Cynthia D’Alba here. I’m thrilled to be here talking about my favorite subject…cowboys! When I was a young girl, all the stories were about knights in shiny armor who rode in on a white horse to save the fair maiden. Today, not so much. The fair maiden is as likely to save the knight as he is to save her.
And let’s face it, you just don’t see that many knights wearing shiny armor these days. So who or what can replace that brave knight? There may be lots of options (Navy SEALs, doctors, cops, FBI or other government secret agents) but to me, nothing quite evokes a brave knight riding in as well as the modern day cowboy. So what makes the cowboy work so well as hero material? Let’s start with the physical attributes.
