A Paint River Ranch Novel (#2)
By Elizabeth Otto
Blurb: One night is never enough…
Jobless, broke, and struggling to support herself and her invalid mother, paramedic Sophie Miller doesn’t have time or energy for a relationship. Especially with her mother’s clock ticking down. So when the sexy cowboy she meets at a carnival proposes a no-strings, one-night stand, she’s all over it. Until her one-night stand shows up again and turns out to be everything she’s ever wanted.
Tucker Haywood has his hands full running Paint River Ranch and trying to deal with all the changes pulling the rug out from under him. His past has taught him it’s better to keep women at arm’s length, for their sake. Stubborn and temperamental, Tucker doesn’t have a clue how to deal with a city girl who’s scared of squirrels and dirt.
So when Sophie gets under his skin, he has to do whatever it takes to push her away. Even if it means losing the part of himself he never thought he’d find.

I couldn’t write without music. In fact, I have my iPod playing before I even crack open my laptop. Music calms my mind and helps me collect my thoughts. And when I’m working on a difficult story, it is necessary for drawing out my character’s emotions. My playlist spans from 90’s rock to country to instrumental.
In my new release, ONE NIGHT WITH A COWBOY, both Tucker and Sophie are extremely emotion-driven, which required a finely-tuned playlist to keep the words flowing. Because this book is set on a working Montana cattle ranch, country music makes up the bulk, but I think you might be surprised by what else you see there.
Here’s a partial playlist that accompanies the hot, emotional ride in ONE NIGHT WITH A COWBOY:
Whatever She’s Got, David Nail
Wake Up Lovin’ You, Craig Morgan
Appalachia Waltz, Mark O’Connor
Man of Constant Sorrow, Soggy Bottom Boys
Locked out of Heaven, Bruno Mars
Hands All Over, Maroon 5
Bad Angel, Dierks Bentley
Elizabeth Otto grew up in a Wisconsin town the size of a postage stamp, where riding your horse to the grocery store, and skinny dipping after school were perfectly acceptable. No surprise that she writes about small communities and country boys. She’s the author of paranormal romance, and hot, emotional, contemporary romance, and has no guilt over frequently making her readers cry. When not writing, she works full-time as an Emergency Medical Technician for a rural ambulance service. Elizabeth lives with her very own country boy and their three children in, shockingly, a small Midwestern town.
Elizabeth Otto will be doing giveaways from her Facebook page throughout the month of May.
