Ummm, have you seen a cowboy in person? I live in Kansas, and I grew up going to the local county fair, so I guess my crush started at a very early age. I’ve never seen a cowboy who wasn’t incredibly sure of himself without being arrogant. They walk tall and proud with a fine layer of dust on their clothing and boots, and I’m here to tell you, they are truly worthy of my swoons as they pass by.
Several years ago, I was lucky enough to spend an entire week on a working cattle ranch in Montana. It was a vacation organized through a gay travel company, so not only was I the only female, but the only straight person on the trip. Riding horses through the majestic Montana countryside surrounded by gay men wearing hats and cowboy boots gave me quite a few story ideas and a whole new appreciation for tight jeans.
Visit Cattle Valley today for your own cowboy experience and let me know if your imagination runs wild for cowboys.

Sometimes it takes finding an opposite to show us the beauty within ourselves.
When security consultant and ex-mercenary, Gabrielo ‘Snake’ Barbas, thwarts an attack of one of his co-workers, Riley Banks, he takes it upon himself to keep the smaller man safe. His job is made harder when he discovers the attacker is actually Riley’s ex-boyfriend, a ruthless man from a very wealthy and powerful family.
After a night of passion, Snake decides to take Riley far away from Richmond, Virginia to a town in Wyoming for the annual Cattle Valley Days celebration. He should have known that sex with Riley wouldn’t be enough, but he feels he has nothing else to give such a nice guy. Riley is the sexiest man Snake’s ever taken to his bed despite Riley’s claim otherwise.
Riley knows he’s average-looking at best, so why does Snake continue to flatter him? It’s obvious he’s not going to kick Snake out of bed, even after Snake informs him that sex is all he has to give. Why does Snake see him so differently than the rest of the world?
While Riley is busy trying to figure out the man who touches him like no other has before, Snake is busy trying to protect him from a monster in a business suit.

Gabrielo ‘Snake’ Barbas pushed his jaw to the side, cracking his neck, as he continued to stare at the surveillance monitor. Training hadn’t been part of his job as a recruiter for Tisdale Security, but he hadn’t been happy with the shoddy work performed recently in the control room. He spotted a shiny red car parked in the back of the employee parking lot and waited for Brian, the technician, to take notice.
When Brian switched the feed to a different camera, showing the back of the building, Snake crossed his arms over his chest and groaned. “Go back,” he ordered.
“To what?” Brian asked.
“The parking lot.” A good technician was worth his weight in gold if you could find one, and Snake had a feeling he needed to keep looking. Brian was a nice enough guy but didn’t have the passion necessary for the work. Watching surveillance footage all day could be boring as fuck if you didn’t have the drive for it.
“What am I supposed to see?” Brian pulled the parking lot up on three different monitors, giving himself three separate angles to study.
With a resigned sigh, Snake leaned forward and tapped the glass. “What’s that?”
“A car.” Brian glanced at Snake. “There are a lot of cars. It’s a parking lot.”
“How many cars do you see with people in them?” Hell. It was like trying to teach a newborn to walk.
“None, but maybe he’s just waiting for someone or taking a call or something.”
“Possibly,” Snake agreed. “But it’s your job to make sure he poses no threat.”
“How do I do that? I’m not supposed to leave the command center,” Brian blustered.
“You fucking watch him. It’s your goddamn job!” Snake was losing his patience, which didn’t bode well for poor Brian. He was beginning to rethink his decision to settle down and give up the mercenary career that had netted him a bundle of cash. Lifting his hands, he started to run his fingers through his hair, only to remember he’d cut it off, skull short, only the day before.
