Cowboys are Back!!!


Why? Because it’s been almost twenty-four months since I published a Stephanie Rowe book, and today, a new one hits the shelves. Welcome to the world, A Real Cowboy Trusts His Heart!!!

It’s been twenty-two and a half months, to be exact, since the Stocktons last graced the world with a new story about these AMAZING brothers and those they love.

How does so much time go by between releases of a series I love so much? 

Life happens. Personal demons must be defeated. Sometimes I feel like I have more personal demons than other people, but the truth is that EVERYONE is dealing with their own little beasts.

These little beasts make us stronger, though. They make us decide what matters to us, and force us to become stronger, smarter, and more resourceful to get past them. 

That is what happened with this book. I started writing this book on February 2, 2018, but I kept abandoning it because I couldn’t get it right and I couldn’t figure out what I needed to do to fix it. I would have given up on it forever, but I freaking LOVE these Stocktons, and I love Zoey and Ryder, and I knew they deserved their happily ever after.

So, each time, after a break, I would go back to the story and work on it, trying to figure out how to make it come to life. Each time, I’d have to walk away again.

Until this June. When I sat down to work on it, it came to life. I think I needed to grow as a writer and as a person before I could do justice to this story. Once I was where I needed to be, the story lit up like a glorious sunshine full of love, laughter, and light, and I flew through it.

It’s the best story I’ve ever written (so far!). The love story is so emotional and heart-warming, and the heroine has so much sass, spunk, and courage despite her personal demon beasties that I want her to be my bestie. 

If you ever feel stuck, like you just can’t pull yourself free of the emotional crap that seems to weigh you down, this story is for you. It’s about finding your worthiness in all your imperfections, and finally understanding that you are worth being deeply, truly loved exactly as you are. 

Happy sigh, right? 

And reviews are starting to come in, and they’re making it clear that i’m not the only one who LOVES this story! 

Like this email I got from an ARC reviewer yesterday:

“I’m ¾’s of the way through the ARC and I have a few things I need to say.  
  1. I blame you for my not getting much sleep last night!  
  2. Holy Crap!!!  This one is excellent!”

Or this review on Goodreads from a reader who had never read this series before: 

“I have read other stories by Stephanie Rowe but none from this series and I can see I have some catching up to do. This is book seven in this series but it is so well written and captivating, I had no trouble getting into the story…My to be read pile just got a LOT bigger!” (Laura C)

This makes my heart SO happy to see the joy that my stories bring to others. That’s why I do it!!  

So, if you haven’t grabbed your copy of A Real Cowboy Trusts His Heart, why not give it a try? Now’s your chance!

Happy Reading!
