I am so excited to share Ian Neisson’s story with readers. I have been looking forward to the opportunity ever since I first came up with the concept for the Rodeo Romeos series. As the eldest Neisson sibling, Ian carries a lot of responsibility on his shoulders, and I couldn’t wait for the chance to give him the Happily Ever After he deserves.
And it’s always fun to return to a world worth escaping to. The Rodeo Romeo series not only includes the thrills and chills found at a rodeo, but also my personal fantasy of life on a legacy ranch like the one owned by Ian’s family.
I also wanted to include an overarching mystery that would conclude in Ian’s book, and when I learned that the FBI investigates livestock theft when state lines are crossed, I knew I had Ian’s perfect match.
One of the themes I drew on while writing The Cowboy’s Vow was the old adage of Never Say Never. FBI Special Agent Jessie Martin has sworn “never again” when it comes to cowboys. Ian, a cowboy to the core, has sworn to never again open himself up the pain of loss. Needless to say, it was fun putting them together and watching the fireworks fly.
I hope you enjoy reading The Cowboy’s Vow as much as I enjoyed writing it. And don’t forget to check out the first two books in the series, The Bull Rider’s Second Chance and Wrangling The Cowboy’s Heart.
Having never met an unhappy ending she couldn’t mentally “fix,” Leah Vale believes writing romance novels is the perfect job for her. A Pacific Northwest native with a B.A. in Communications from the University of Washington, she lives in Central Oregon, with a huge golden retriever who thinks he’s a lap dog. While having the chance to share her “happy endings from scratch” is a dream come true, dinner generally has to come premade from the store.
