FEATURED BOOK AND INTERVIEW: Her Convenient Cowboy by Lacy Williams




Do You Take This Cowboy? 

A blizzard traps rancher Davy White in his family's secluded cabin with Rose Evans…and she's nine months pregnant! Help is miles away, and Davy must work to keep them both alive. As the storm rages outside, he comes to care for the vulnerable widow. Enough that he's willing to offer her his name—against his family's objections. 

Rose will do anything for her baby, but she's recently widowed. She doesn't know if she can trust the feelings she has toward Davy. And she refuses to come between him and his family. But the more time they spend together, the less she can resist the comforting, caring cowboy. 

Wyoming Legacy: United by family, destined for love 


 INTERVIEW:
How exciting to have Davy White the hero from Her Convenient Cowboy written by USA Today bestselling author Lacy Williams a June 2015 release from Love Inspired Romance set in 1902 rural Wyoming…

1.  Davy, tell us a little about you:

I’m one of eight adopted children of Jonas and Penny White. And now Jonas and Penny have three biological children, and three of my brothers have married—our family is growing by leaps and bounds. We manage a family ranch in the wilds of Wyoming. Nearest town is several miles away, but we’ve become pretty self-sufficient. I’m right in the middle—two older adopted brothers, and four younger. I’m a peacemaker. Sometimes a loner. But I love my family deeply.

2.  What is your idea of perfect happiness?

Spending time with family. Living off the land. Knowing that everyone I love is provided for and happy.

3.  Which is your favorite season, and why?

There’s things to like about all of them. In spring, when the first buds start greening up and the creek melts enough to go fishing… Summertime, when the rush of calves being born is over and the planting is done and a body can find a lazy afternoon. Autumn when there’s the feeling of triumph after we’ve finished the harvest and put up enough hay and grain to bring the animals through the winter.

I guess if I had to pick, I’d choose winter. Sure, a cowboy like me has to battle the elements to keep the animals alive, but there’s also the early nights when the family gets shut in together by darkness and snow—and our family in particular likes to play games and talk and just be together.

4.  Have you ever been in love?

Can’t say that I have. My brother Ricky is the one who’s good with women—he always knows the right thing to say. (Maybe a little too good). It’s not that I’m shy, exactly, just that I put my boot in it more often than not. But someday… I’d like to be. 

5.  What is your perfect wife like?

She’d have to be patient to put up with my ornery brothers. Have a little fight in her, if she wanted to make her home out here on the plains. Someone who’ll stick. It doesn’t matter so much if she doesn’t know much about ranching—as long as she’s willing to learn.

Somebody who loves me for me.

6.  Do you like being part of a big family?

I love my brothers and sisters. Sometimes I need my space. Usually a quiet camping trip or even an afternoon sitting next to the creek with a pole in hand is enough to make me start missing their noise and pranks. Ricky and I have been close since our childhoods, and after him, Breanna is probably the one I’m next closest to.

7.  Do you have a pet? If so, what is it and why that pet?

Little ball of white fluff—a dog—that belongs to my sister Breanna. She feeds the thing, cares for it, but it follows us boys around too much for its own good. One nice thing—Rose seems to like it.

8.  What is your greatest regret?

Not realizing how deep Ricky’s pain was before he left home. We haven’t heard from him in months and I… I really miss him. I knew he had some darkness in his past, though he never shared all of it with me. I just didn’t know it was still eating away at him. I can only pray he’ll come home. And soon.

9.  What do you think of Rose?

Rose? She’s something, all right. Even scared and distrustful as she was when I first found her up in the cabin, I could sense how special of a woman she was. And those peach tarts she bakes… a man could be ensnared by those.
