About Counting on the Cowboy ~

Ranching is his whole life… until he meets one special city girl

Texas Cowboy Brock McBride knows better than to fall for a city girl. She’ll leave and break his heart—just like his ex-fiancée did. But his job at Chasing Eden Dude Ranch requires working alongside Dallas wedding planner Devree Malone. And despite fierce resistance, he’s falling hard. Yet with Devree’s business back in the city, can he convince her she’s found her home…with him?

To introduce us to the characters, Shannon asked her hero and heroine, Brock and Devree, a few questions:

  1. Are you open to your own romance?

Devree: Romance is the last thing I want. I recently met with a bride to plan her wedding, but when the groom showed up, he was my boyfriend. And I mean was. His wedding got called off, by the way.

Brock: No. I don’t mean to speak ill of the dead, but my wife cheated on me. More than once. Besides, right now, I need to focus on my little girl.

  1. What’s the number one quality you’d require in a mate?

Devree: I’m not interested, but I guess I’d have to say honesty.

Brock: Faithfulness.

  1. What’s the number two quality you’d require in a mate?

Devree: Did I mention honesty. It would be very hard for me to trust again. If I could, and then I found out he was lying to me, I’d be shattered.

Brock: Someone who could love my little girl completely.

  1. What’s the one habit or lifestyle that would make you run the other way?

Devree: Lying to me. I’ve had enough of that to last me a lifetime.

Brock: Unfaithfulness. I want someone who can love me and only me. And my little girl of course. If things were different, Devree would fit what I’m looking for, but I can’t tell her the truth about my daughter.

  1. What would be a reason to end a potential romance for you?

Devree: If I found out he was lying to me. About anything.

Brock: Distrust. Although I feel like a heel for not being honest with Devree right now.

  1. What would be the best gift a potential mate could buy for you?

Devree: I can’t be bought. A gift to me would be complete and total honesty.

Brock: Things that can be bought are temporal. I’m more interested in gifts like commitment and trustworthiness. Devree could give me that. But if she knew the truth, she’d hate me.
