Try: A rodeo rider's mettle in the face of being thrown off time after time…
In Denver, Colorado, Daryl Heatherly is a promising young artist, hoping to find the place she fits in. Back home in the country just outside of Cheyenne, Wyoming - the real West - she's returning to the last place her family all lived together, to a life bordered only by sage and sky. And it's there she rubs up against J. W. Jarrett, a world champion rodeo cowboy and old-school Southern gentleman. Against her better judgment - not to mention that of her best friend, Shawna, and overprotective brother, Jace - Daryl forges ahead despite her own recent heartbreak, not only dating J. W., but joining him on the circuit to watch him ride. Even though the chemistry between them is immediate and undeniable, Daryl is determined not to fall for a cowboy, with all the dust and drama that implies - especially when she finds out that J. W. is a man with secrets.
But Daryl hasn't counted on the grit of a man who has outlasted every other rider in the ring - her cowboy isn't going to give up that easily.…
A love story set in the New West world of honky-tonks, buckle bunnies, and pointy-toed boots, Try is a fast, fresh, sensually charged novel about holding on to what you love despite all the bumps and bruises.

I'm Audible's first Editor-at-Large, the host of In Bed with Susie Bright -- and a longtime author, editor, journo, and bookworm.

Our heroine, a Denver artist, travels home to Wyoming where she has a fling with a rodeo cowboy. She thinks she knows all about rough riders, but this one knows something she doesn't...
