Who Wants to Marry a Cowboy?

BlameItOnTexasI’m thrilled to have the wonderful Abigail Sharpe as my guest today to talk about her book, Who Wants to Marry a Cowboy!  I had the pleasure of reading this gem, and it is utterly charming and witty and a true delight!  You’re gonna love her!  So, stick around, leave a comment, and you might get lucky and win one of two copies of her book I’m giving away!

So, Abigail, your book is about marrying a cowboy.  Do you love cowboys and/or did you marry one?

First, thank you for having me here.  Your books are so amazing and I’m thrilled you enjoyed mine.

Cowboys make the best heroes, don’t they?  They’re sexy, independent, know how to fill out a pair of jeans and rock a Stetson.  And while I adore them in their fictional world, I might have trouble living on a ranch.  I’m more of a city girl in that respect.

Thanks, Abigail!  So, tell me, which three words do you think best describe your book?

Fun, flirty, sexy.

The funny thing is, while I included love scenes in Who Wants to Marry a Cowboy, I was still so new at writing them that I didn’t think they were anything special.  A lot of reviewer blogs, however, mentioned the chemistry between Ainsley and Riley and their sexy scenes.  I guess I was on to something.

Yes, you were.  Now, name three things you have in common with your hero or heroine.

Oooh, tough one.  I have more in common with one of the tertiary characters who visits the ranch as woman who wants to marry a cowboy.  As for my heroine – Ainsley tries to please everyone at the sacrifice of her own happiness.  I don’t go that far, but if there’s something I can do to make my family happy, I’ll do it.  Maybe not hightail it to Wyoming for a ranch vacation, however.  I also like fixing things around the house when I can, like a worn door knob.  Ainsley can do that and so much more. 

What have you learned about people since you’ve become an author? 

Daily interactions are fodder for stories or can be used for inspiration.  The world is such an interesting place.  Ideas are there if you let them come to you.

So true.  And have your parents or family read your book and/or love scenes?  How does that make you feel?

My mom is waiting to see me to get her autographed copy.  I’m still slightly mortified by the thought of her reading the love scenes.  My kids are 11 and 9 – and boys – so they haven’t read it.

As for my husband… He supports me in so many ways.  He doesn’t complain if I ditch the family after dinner or on the weekends to write.  I’ve spent the last three weekends away from home because I was presenting workshops at different RWA chapters.  He takes on my responsibilities when I do that, like picking the kids up from school.  We work on our household budget together so I can go to conferences.  Now, he’s not a romance reader, and I kinda don’t want him to read Who Wants to Marry a Cowboy– my biggest fear being he won’t enjoy it, and then he’d have to lie to me.  I don’t need him to read it to know I have his love and support.

What is your pet peeve?

It’s awful, and I need to get over it.  Are you ready?

I hate when people end sentences with the word at.  Like, instead of saying, “where is it?” they’ll say, “Where’s it at?”  The people I work with know this about me, and will tease me by purposefully ending sentences that way.  It’s funny, but it drives me nuts at the same time.

Okay, last one . . . it’s a doozy . . . Is your hero a boxers, briefs, or commando kinda guy?

Tighty-whities all the way!  Which is ironic – I love a man in boxers. 

Thanks for the intriguing questions!

No problem.  Loved having you here!  So, now it’s everyone else’s turn!  Tell us, do you love a man in boxers, briefs, or commando style?  Or, you can be tame and just tell us if you want to marry a cowboy.  That’ll be fine, too, LOL.  Two lucky winners will win a copy of Abigail’s book, Who Wants to Marry a Cowboy!  Good luck and check back next week!

  1. Hmm… if I was undressing a guy, what would I want to find beneath his jeans? (Other than the obvious!) I’m going to say a thong or maybe boyshorts. I love well-balanced genders!

    PS: Abigail, Hoth is where you’re most likely to find an AT-AT at.

  2. I’m reading WWTMAC right now, and am loving the story!!! Abigail Sharpe hits all the marks that make me keep turning the pages, and there’s a bit of humor in every scene. Love that! As for what the author has in common with one of her characters, I’m betting that she’s a whiz in the kitchen. Her heroine, Ainsley, doesn’t cook but one of her characters is quite the chef and KNOWS what she’s doing. I won’t spill the beans, but she pulled a mean little trick on Ainsley. As for my preferences, it’s briefs all the way, but I like the ones with color too.

  3. I think I can relate to Ainsley.. I always had that “pleasing” the family bit, but now I please myself. I can’t wait to read this book.. It sounds Delightfully flirty fun and sexy… Just the kind of books I like to read. I like boxers..

    • Kathleen, that’s how I describe it! (Well, you probably also read it in the interview *laugh*) And I’m glad you think you can relate to Ainsley. I loved watching her grow.

  4. I like the cute bikini briefs, but really, any of the three choices are fine with me. And sure, I’d love to marry a cowboy, they’re hot. 😀

  5. Boxer briefs or tighty whities… preferably not in actual white. Give me a man with some awesome super hero undies and we can be best friends forever. And I would not want to marry a cowboy, but would love to read fictional stories about marrying cowboys! (No offense cowboys. You just can’t drag me out of the city so it’s for the best we remain long distance buddies.)

      • und selbst wenns nicht auf eurem mist gewachsen ist – ihr habt als &#a&o0;inform8ti2ns2#8221; medium eine gewisse verantwortung. und wenn ihr die darin seht, den aufruf zum massen-kinder-übernachten im park zu verbreiten bzw. unterstützen, dann herzlichen glückwunsch zu diesem fatalen falschverständnis!hängt doch gleich noch den aufruf der pädophilen-initiative hintendran, zur gleichen zeit am gleichen ort zu sein…also echt mal, was soll der mist!?

  6. Boxers or briefs are fine with me, it’s the fit that does the trick and the confidence of the man inside. Commando makes me squirm – zippers too close to the good stuff!

  7. I like a guy in boxer briefs. Although if you haven’t already you should check out the wonder jock line of underwear from aussiebum. Those are hilarious. I don’t know a single guy that would wear them though.

  8. I’m not picky… I’ll be happy with whatever makes him happy. 🙂 As long as I’m the only one who sees his choice! My sister’s name is Ainsley and it’s not every day you see that name. I so want this book!
