Cowboys & Cocktails by Camryn Rhys

Cowboys & Cocktails                       

Let’s be honest. What goes better with hot men than hard liquor?

Nothing. That’s right.

So to kick off the Cowboys & Cocktails release party (link:, I’m going to share a little bit about this upcoming book, and then the cocktail that I think most represents the gorgeous, foodie at heart, dazzling magazine editor, Sylvie Proulx.

Sylvie Proulx is the food-obsessed blonde seductress hiding in the body of a skinny, well-manicured, celibate jogging New Yorker. Once a year, she sneaks off to Las Vegas to get away from her life as it is, and have a Madame-Eve-approved One Night Stand. She knows that she’ll have one magic night of food exploration and hot sex. But she’s always afraid that along will come a man who’ll show her that her old life isn’t enough.

So Sylvie’s signature cocktail for this weekend is: THE FORBIDDEN LOVER. A fruity, decadent cocktail with a fresh twist that looks sinful and tastes like a lover’s kiss.

Sylvie doesn’t know it yet, but her forbidden lover is right around the corner, and he will make her wonder if she should go back to New York, or follow her heart to Freewill. Let’s look at the mix for Sylvie’s cocktail:


 2 oz. gin

1 oz. blood orange juice

1 oz. Gran marnier

Dash of simple syrup, 2 strawberries

4 slices of cucumber

Muddle the strawberries with the cucumber in the simple syrup. Add liquids and shake. Strain into martini glass. Garnish with a spiral of cucumber and orange peel hearts. Twist on a classic.

Remember the rules of Cowboys & Cocktails… post your favorite cocktail recipe or a picture of you drinking Sylvie’s Forbidden Lover to be entered to win the grand prize. And come to my blog during release week (the last week of June) to find more opportunities to win.

I hope you enjoy Sylvie’s story, and her cocktail. Happy reading… and drinking! J

Romance So Good, You Can Taste It

Why Romance Novels Matter !!

  Brought to you by Adam & Eve What do you say when someone asks if you enjoy reading romance novels? Do you answer with a loud and proud “yes,” or do you hedge, saying you read them, but just for fun, as if being a serious enthusiast is akin to being a pervert? Do you, in other words, give in to the idea that there’s something shameful about loving a good romance story? You’re not alone. The truth is, society has stacked the deck against those of us who love romance novels. There are still major misconceptions surrounding the genre, namely that it is a frivolous pastime enjoyed only by bored housewives. No other type of literature has endured the same level of malignant criticism or unfair categorization. The term “Harlequin romance,” which refers to one of the largest and oldest distributors of romance novels, has become shorthand for “trash” and “smut.” And all this hatred exists even while romance novels continue to be one of the fastest-growing and top-selling gen

Alpha favorite :)

Have you ever been asked what you like about Alpha Males?  Well I never had before but when I think about it, the Alpha Male is always the one that draws me in when I read a great book.    He's just got this unbelievable presence he exudes, one that makes you stop and take notice.   He makes me want to be the heroine just so I can have him :)  He doesn't give a sh** what others think of him and that makes him even more attractive.  He's always confident and sure about himself but even if he's got doubts, you'll never know about them.  He takes charge in every aspect of his life, dominates.  Of course the gorgeous and sexy part isn't a bad thing either.  So what exactly do you like about an Alpha male??    Well today i'd love for you to leave me a comment telling me what you like, what makes you pick the Alpha every time.  And, if you'd rather have the Beta, well tell me about that too!  Dont' forget to leave your email address in case you win!
