Guest Post - D'Ann Lindun

Have you ever started over? Got a new lease on life with a big change? Have you ever risked it all? In both my March releases, the hero needs a new start. For different reasons Cody and Cooper both need to change their life in a big way. Both have risked everything financially to give themselves a fresh start.

From Cooper’s Redemption:
Cooper remounted the gelding and followed the tracks, unable to guess why the rustlers had headed toward his house. As he rode, Cooper faced the terrible truth– his cattle were gone, stolen. He grew angrier each mile. Who had herded his heifers into the upcoming blizzard? And where had they gone?

His heart sank a little lower with each question. Those cattle were his future. He'd scrimped and saved every dime for the last year to buy one hundred heifers to build his ranch. And someone had stolen some of them? Frustrated, his mind continued to work over the puzzle.

He'd have to solve the crime himself; he had no use for the law. And they had none for him.

From Rodeo Man:

Cody Utah rubbed the back of his neck. Putting together a rodeo school was more paperwork than he’d ever imagined. He had to force himself to do it though. The wreck that could’ve killed him had taken his livelihood. Every dime he’d saved was sunk in this ranch, and he had nothing to fall back on. After his accident, the boot and jeans companies once so keen on him had turned their hungry eyes on younger, hotter riders. If he didn’t make a go of this ranch, he wouldn’t have anything.

Not only would he be out of work and broke, his dream would die, too.
He could teach young men more than how to strap themselves on the back of a bull. Maybe there was someone out there like he’d been as a kid, lost and searching for something to turn him around. Squaring his shoulders, he threw off lingering whispers of doubt. He wished his buddy, Luke Greer, would hurry and get here. Luke had agreed to help him get his rodeo school off the ground. As the current hot rider on the circuit, Luke’s name would draw the students his couldn’t bring in.

Falling in love with romance novels the summer before sixth grade, D’Ann Lindun never thought about writing one until many years later when she took a how-to class at her local college. She was hooked! She began writing and never looked back. Romance appeals to her because there's just something so satisfying about writing a book guaranteed to have a happy ending. D’Ann’s particular favorites usually feature cowboys and the women who love them. This is probably because she draws inspiration from the area where she lives, Western Colorado, her husband of twenty-nine years and their daughter. Composites of their small farm, herd of horses, five Australian shepherds, a Queensland heeler, nine ducks and cats of every shape and color often show up in her stories!
