renee_logoI’d like to extend a warm welcome to romance author, Renee Vincent. Renee’s slipped in to share one of her diary entries … I do believe she’s stopped by to share a little something with her Viking heroes.  😉

Dear Diary,

I have a confession to make. While I’ve tried to stay true to the Vikings in my life, I’ve found someone new. Someone just as big and bold as Dægan and Gustaf Ræliksen, but without the sword. I’m sorry, I couldn’t help it. Believe me, I tried to avoid him, but the temptation to find out more about him was too great. I caved. It all started with just a simple glimpse into his world and bam! I was hooked. And now, I’m totally in love with this man.

Look, I know my Norse heroes are the bomb dot com and that they put most book boyfriends to shame, but I have to admit that the new guy…Brody Galven…well, he’s fast becoming a favorite of mine.

He’s tall and broad-shouldered with a just the right amount of scruff on his face to give him that rugged appeal. He works on a ranch, so he’s no stranger to hard labor. And because of all the hay bale tossing, wild horse breaking, cattle wrangling, and wood splitting he does on a daily basis—oh my! His body is hard-muscled everywhere. Did I mention the man can rock a tight pair of jeans?

Now I know he’s not the normal kind of guy I tend to drool over as his arms are sleeved with brightly colored tattoos, but this bad boy wears them well. Along with his ink and his ability to rope and ride, there’s a mysterious dark side to him that I can’t help but be drawn toward. Granted, he’s got some demons to fight, but I know with just a little time and some tender affection, he’ll open up.

I know what you’re thinking and I’d appreciate it if you’d quit judging me. If you knew this guy like I do, you wouldn’t be so quick to slight him. renee_longingHe’s got a heart of gold and when push comes to shove, this cowboy won’t back down. Yeah—I said it. Cowboy!

I’m writing cowboy romances now and there’s nothing you can do to stop me. Don’t worry…I’m not giving up on my Vikings. I’m still working on my Warrior Series, but because of all the trips I’ve made out West, (and the fact that I live on a hundred-acre horse farm) I’ve been inspired to write about cowboys. Hunky, Alpha-male, cattle ranchers who are just as skilled in the bedroom as they are in the saddle.

What’s the title and when does this book release, you ask? Well, it’s called LONGING FOR LANGSTON (a Mavericks of Meeteetse prequel) and it’s included in a boxed set with my fellow InkHeart Authors that has released today, September 15th! Then in late October it will release as a single title, with the first book of the series to follow in November.

I hope you can forgive me for jumping ship—or longship, rather—of my Norse warriors and mounting up with the Mavericks of Meeteetse. I promise these Wyoming cowboys will wrangle your interest, rope your heart, and rock your world.

With Love,
