So tell us, Tara, where did you get the idea for this novel?
The Cowboy's Twins is the third and last book in the Family Secrets Cooking show trilogy! It follows
both of which can be purchased with above link and coupon code!
All three books take place around a reality cooking show, Family Secrets. Each book also features a hero or heroine whose life is deeply effected by a family secret. The Cowboy's Twins is the story of the show's host - a cowboy with a major secret. I don't really know where the specific idea came from, but I know the source of my cow information! I have family members who raise cattle. To attest to that, here's a not so great picture of me, taken just a few weeks ago, on a family farm.
In looking at the cover, if you could add a caption or captions, what would they say?
Who could resist this cowboy?
What is your favorite scene?
“I get to name her.”
“Nuh-uh, I do.”
Listening just outside the bathroom door while his kids stood on identical stools at double sinks, supposedly brushing their teeth, Spencer smiled. Starting the day with only two hours of sleep would catch up with him.
For now, he had duties to tend to.
“No, Justin, that is not true. Daddy said that if she’s a girl, I get to name her. And she’s a girl.”
Spencer couldn’t help the smile growing wider on his face as he listened to the most articulate seven-year-old he’d ever known. Justin was a handful but didn’t faze him a bit. Tabitha was going to be the death of him.
“Well, I get to pet her first…”
When he heard the intensity rising in his son’s voice, Spencer entered the room to see two dark-haired little kids standing on stools, their brown gazes at war in the mirror. Neither of them had anything resembling toothbrushes in sight.
“You’re supposed to be brushing your teeth.”
“We did.” Justin’s immediate response was followed by a drop in his gaze. And then his chin met his chest. “No, we didn’t,” he corrected himself before Spencer could take the breath necessary to challenge the boy. “But…do we gotta?” Justin’s eyes widened as he gave Spencer an imploring look. “They’ll just get dirty again, and I’ll brush it all away tonight.”
Spencer pressed his lips together, hoping he looked stern.
The hardest part about being a single parent was having no one with whom to share the laughter...
Who was your favorite character and why?
I'm never good at this question. I can't play favorites. I truly love them all - for different reasons and in different ways. Spencer's the quintessential hero. I relate to Natasha so much. And the twins...I love every minute I spent with them!
What are you writing now?
I just finished a new proposal this week - for an upcoming project. I'm in the middle of a book due next month - Book Thirteen in my Where Secrets Are Safe series for Superromance. And I'm also in the middle of revisions for Book Twelve in that same series, For Joy's Sake, which is out this August!
For now, this is my last official post as a Harlequin Heartwarming Author. I am so sorry to be leaving you all here, but hope you'll continue to share journeys with me! You can find me here:
