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: http://camrynrhys.com/?p=150), 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:



SYLVIE’S FORBIDDEN LOVER

 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

Take Me Home, Cowboy



here's the blurb:

here's my 7:


      Ally’s attention immediately flew to the newcomer in the room. How could she not? He was gorgeous. Not that she actually wanted to notice.  Ha! Who was she kidding? His hair was still damp where it curled slightly at the neckline of his T-shirt. The short sleeve tee was snug fitting and showed off his pectorals and tanned arm muscles. He grabbed his plate, made his way around the table, and leaned in close. Oh, his scent hit her—clean soap and pure male. Good God.
     "Like what you see, princess?" he murmured.
 
     Startled out of her trance, she stumbled for a quick, snide comment. "You wish, cowboy," she whispered back, and then turned back to her daddy, who was already halfway finished with his meal.
 
      She was not about to let anyone see how rattled the foreman’s presence actually made her. She only hoped she hadn’t already given her odd interest in him away. Ignore him and he won't be any the wiser.  She would be sure to make this trip a short one, or she would be in trouble.
      Jesse cleaned his plate and abruptly stood, placed his dishes in the sink, and made to leave the room.    "Looks like you kids get to do the dishes. I’m off to my study." Her dad kissed the top of her head and slapped his foreman on the back, then chuckled as he disappeared through the door.
 
      "That rat!" she said. "He shoveled through his dinner on purpose."
     "No worries, princess. I do the dishes every night anyway. You can go do whatever it is you do before bed. I’ll take care of the clean up before I head out to check the horses."
