Blurb: There are worse things than being stranded in a blizzard.

Artist Trevor Morrison has always appreciated the little things in life, treating each day as a gift. And with good reason: he’s been on the transplant-recipient list for too long now. When he learns just how numbered his days truly are, he resolves not to take them for granted. But he won’t be unrealistic, either—which means romantic commitments are off the table.

Marcus Roberts seems to have it all. He’s handsome, financially sound, and on the fast track to partnership at a prestigious law firm. In reality, though, his drive for success has meant no time for friends or relationships. Add in the fact that his family discarded him long ago, and he’s facing yet another holiday season alone.

When the biggest snowstorm to hit Colorado in decades leaves Marc and Trevor stranded at the same hotel, a chance encounter and a night of passion leads to more than either of them expected. Finding comfort in each other is a welcome surprise, but time is not on their side. Either they find a way to beat the odds, or they lose each other forever.

Blurb: Pickup man Bridge Sullivan is the kind of cowboy everyone wants—as a brother, a friend, a lover. People think he’s straight, but Bridge isn’t one for labels, and when a sexy male paramedic jumpstarts his heart, he charges in with all guns blazing.

New York City transplant Eric Palmer grew up in foster care. While he always had a roof over his head, he never felt love or a sense of belonging . . . until he joined the California rodeo circuit as a paramedic and found a band of brothers who took him in as one of their own. Now, one in particular is making Eric’s pulse race.

When things heat up between Bridge and Eric, Bridge has to prove to Eric he’s not just experimenting with the rougher sex, while Eric must overcome his fears of being unwanted and cast aside. He knows that trusting Bridge may be the key to his happy ever after, but getting in the saddle is much, much easier than learning to let it ride.

Blurb: It takes a pissed-off Brahma bull named Shockwave to show rodeo pickup man Marty Fairgrave the cold hard truth about champion bull rider Tripp Colby: Tripp will never leave the safety of his closet or acknowledge Marty in public. Sometimes loving someone just isn’t enough, and after a year of hiding what they are, Marty finally sees the light—and it’s no longer shining on Tripp.

Tripp Colby would do anything for Marty. Well . . . almost. He’s never loved anyone before, and isn’t quite sure how to handle it now. But he knows Marty is his everything, and in order to win him back, Tripp will have to overcome his darkest fears and step into the light.

But no matter Tripp’s intentions, the cost might be too high and the effort too late for these two cowboys to ride off into the sunset.

Honorary Blogger L.C. Chase: It’s Not About Sex + Giveaway!

It’s Not About Sex

by L.C. Chase

G’day everyone! Welcome to my Pulling Leather blog tour and a peek into the world of rodeo cowboys. (The official schedule can be found here.) This wouldn’t be a proper tour without some prezzies, of course, so read on for giveaway details. Thank you to The Blogger Girls for hosting my cowboys, and to all of you for hopping in the saddle to ride along!

* * *

I am a die-hard romantic. I believe in soulmates and falling in love with that one person and riding off into the sunset and living happily ever after. I love everything romance, including the honor and joy of being able to write it. Why? Maybe because the heart is an amazing thing, and has a capacity to feel so incredibly deep. Maybe because love and romance make the whole world a better place to live in. That’s the world I like, the one I want to live in, which is why the “grand gesture” so often appears in my stories. Who doesn’t love that moment when loves prevails against all odds and finally—finally—our heroes get the happiness and love they never knew they always deserved?

I had an interview question a while back, “What’s the most annoying thing people say when you tell them you’re a writer?” My answer was easy because I’ve had this exact conversation IRL on more than a few occasions:

Them: What do you write?

Me: Romance.

Them: Oh, so porn.

Me: *throws hands up and groans*

It’s annoying but it’s also interesting and a marvel to me why so many people automatically go there. The first thing I think when I hear romance is a journey of the heart. That, to me, is romance. Sex is most definitely a very large part of romance, for sure, but the degree—on or off page, sweet or raunchy—has no bearing on me, so long as I’m also getting a well-rounded love story. Some of the most amazing romances I’ve read had no sex whatsoever in them. They’re love stories. That’s not to say books with lots of sex aren’t also love stories, but it has to make sense for the story as well as to the characters.

Pulling Leather is definitely Scott’s love story. An anti-hero trying to rise above his past and make amends, and just maybe he’ll find the one person he’s meant to be with along the way. But because of his journey, how far he still has to grow, how much he has to learn, he’s on a slow ride to the bedroom. Luckily for him, Cory is the perfect man to ride along side him, with his wide-open heart and ability to see beyond rough exteriors.

So how about you, dear readers? How do you like your romances?
