But wait, your heard Win, he's offering a copy to one lucky commenter so what are you waiting for? Make sure you leave Win a comment. 

Make sure to check out Vonnie's BLOG to learn more about her and her sexy heroes.


  1. Sigh...I just love Win. You don't need to enter my name in the drawing 'cuz I've already got a copy, but sigh...I just love Win.

    1. Thank you, kindly, AJ. Why don't you bring the kids to Solace sometime? I'll take them hoseback riding and show them a bit of Texas hill country. What about you, AJ? Do you ride?

  2. Ladies, thanks for interviewing Win. He's honored to be your first character interview. I didn't know he was going to offer a free copy of my book, but then I didn't know he was going to leave Evie a rose on her dashboard either. The man has a mind of his own. So, ladies, please leave comments! I'm always eager to share Win.

    1. Vonnie, we're thrilled to have you and Win with us today! I'm not surprised Win has a mind of his own, the good ones usually do. LOL

  3. Hi Vonnie! I've already read it too and loved it. I hope we get a chance to peek in on the ranch in a future book. I loved Win's desire to help the kids. On top of being super hot, he has a heart.

    1. Thanks, Sandra. My youngest granddaughter was born with her right arm ending an inch below the elbow joing, so she only has one hand. Lauren has shown us the strength of the human spirit. She loves horseback riding, so Win's ranch was a tiny tribute to her. Children learn so much from animals, I think.

      I do have another entry to the Honky Tonk Hearts series. BACK WHERE YOU BELONG. It involves both cyber and school bullying. My hero is a bullrider and single dad raising a teenager.

    2. And obviously I need to read my replies twice before I hit the publish button. Yikes! I meant to write "elbow joint." Crazy fingers...

    3. We all learn so much from animals, as long as we are open to it and paying attention. :-)

      LOVE Win's ranch!

  4. We all love special possessions...but I think I really do want to know what Win's is. Love this interview idea!

    1. Sarah and Amie are great, aren't they? I love this idea, too. I might steal it (glances at Piracy Sucks button)... then again, maybe not.

    2. ROFL! I have had more fun with Friday Quickies! So Character Quickies just seemed to be the next step. I can't wait to get a couple villains on here, as well. How fun would that be?

  5. I've got one Honky Tonk Hearts book and I'm starting on it next. This looks soo good. Thanks for the giveaway! lisarayns(at)gmail(dot)com

  6. All of the entries in the Honky Tonk Hearts series are awesome reads. I've read them all so far and am eagerly waiting for the next one.

  7. Love this man! Any man who would share a bowl of ice cream with his dog has my heart!!

  8. Thanks, Angela. He's mangled from the war, but his caring spirit remains.

  9. Win is still blushing from all your kind words and wants me to pick two winners. Lisa and Angela, I'll be contacting you shortly. Yay you!!
