LOVE ME ONCE, LOVE ME TWICE - Book one in Sandy Sullivan's Montana Cowboys Series



Home. They say home is where the heart is, but can coming back to Red Rock, Montana really be home? Natalie Bennington is about to find out.

Finding herself in a blizzard and stuck in a ditch, the last person she expects to rescue her is gorgeous ex-high school jock, Cade Weston. His light brown hair and baby blue eyes had many a teenage girl all a twitter including her, but being the shy band girl didn't garner attention from his type. When Cade's best friend Kale, and ex-football jock shows up, the stakes have just shot through the roof. Both men want her and she can't understand why.

Cowboy and all around good guy, Cade Weston is a born and raised Montana boy. Yes ma'am, no sir, hold the lady's chair, open her door - those things were ingrained in his upbringing, but every man likes a pretty woman. Natalie Bennington has grown up into one gorgeous female and he can't get her out of his mind.

Kale Dunn can't get over the changes in the shy band girl he remembers from high-school. Natalie sure turned into one hot woman. All legs, gorgeous body and breasts big enough to fill a man's hands. Would she be willing to share? He and Cade liked to partake in threesome's on occasion, but from what he remembered of Natalie, he didn't think she'd be the type. Was he wrong?

Wined, dined and loved by two men. Can she make the decision to love only one or will their possessiveness drive her back to Oregon?

  6. Leni ~ Right now this series is open ended. I'm not sure how many characters will beg me to write their story. I have at least three more that are whispering in my ear. Other than all the books will take place in Red Rock, Montana, there isn't a centralized theme. Well, cowboys, of course. LOL

    Anything I'm hesitant to write about? Mmm... probably Sci-fi. I'm not so much into the scentific world building kind of thing.

  7. Sherry ~ My all time favorite genre to write is westerns, if you hadn't noticed. LOL I have a thing for men in tight Wranglers, broad chest, tight bu... where was I again? LOL

  8. Mindy ~ Each one of the series will be different. The first one is a menage, the second one so far is contemporary western and will have a little handcuff type play in it as the heroine is a cop. It's called Before The Night Is Over and is scheduled for late March release right now. After that, it just depends on where the characters take their story. I'm open to where ever they lead me.

  10. This series will all be based in Red Rock, Montana. Each one will feature a new hero and heroine, but you'll see a few old favorites in there too as they progress. The first piece is Love Me Once, Love Me Twice and it's a contemporary western menage. It features the shy band girl, Natalie, who comes back into town after having moved away some years before. She's totally shocked when not one of the high-school jocks shows interest, but two. And they like to share.

    The second one so far, is a contemporary western and features the heroine as a cop. Her sister is being abused by her husband and the heroine is trying to help her sister understand it's not normal for a man to beat her until she's black and blue.

  12. Hi Sandy,
    Congratulations on the new series! It looks to be like another engrossing series to get hooked on *grin*

    What do you think it is that makes cowboys such a fascinating subject to write and read about?

    *hugs*

  13. Anna ~ Thanks for the lovely comments. You know, it's funny, when I was promoting Hot Summer Love (Cowboy Style 1) which came out with Whiskey Creek 11/1, I asked several authors and readers that very question. Most of the responses I got had to do with the sweet, gentlemanly behavior, the fiercely loyalty and protective nature of the cowboy. Yes, they look wonderful in Wranglers and a cowboy hat, but it seems readers like how they want to take care of the heroine and even if they have a little wildness to their nature, once they are hooked on someone, that's it.

  14. Sandy, congrats on the start of a new series--as a fan of your cowboys, I'd say this is very welcome news!

    Are you doing anything special to celebrate each release? Thanks for being here to party with us! And will you venture out to enjoy any post-holiday sales? :D

  15. I really don't do anything special to celebrate each release other than share the good news with my fans and let them know how much they mean to me.

    Post holiday sales? I'm staying in my nice warm house since it's currently snowing in middle Tennessee. Hopefully, once all this stuff stops, there'll be some great bargins left. If not, oh well. LOL

  16. Congrats! Sounds like an awesome read! What made you think of this story? Why did you choose that state?

  17. Jessica ~ Thanks for the great comments.

    Why did I choose Montana? I have a few states that say cowboy to me. One is Wyoming, another is Montana and the other is Texas. I love the scenery in Montana and since the first scene of this book has Natalie going into a ditch because it's snowing, Montana jumped out at me.

    This story started with the scene of Cade and Natalie standing in the snow talking. Once I figured out how they got to that place, everything fell into it's proper position in the story. Of course, then Kale started telling me how he was involved and the menage came to life.

  22. How is she supposed to choose just one, when she goes from being the shy band girl to being wanted by two gorgeous men? ;-)Sounds interesting.

  25. Nas~ Thanks for the wonderful comment. I loved writing this book and for those of you who love a snarky, can't hold them down secondary character, Natalie's grandmother is a hoot! She kept my beta readers in stitches.

  26. Can i just say Lucky Natalie! Two Cowboys no less *waves a fan to cool off* What a great excerpt! Sandy I love the Idea of a Cowboy Series, who isn't?! Looks great and I will definitely be getting these! If you ever need an area for non-conventional Cowboys Please think of Hawaii. On the Big Island we have the "Paniolo's" which are Hawaiian Cowboys. Parker Ranch has the Biggest Ranch in Hawaii & some very sweet Cowboys too!

  27. Congrats on the release of your book!

    How do you pick the names for your characters?

  28. Ooh, this one sounds great! Are you already working on the next one? How did you come up with the names Cade and Kale? Kale is pretty neat.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Kaualoku ~ Thanks for the suggestion of Hawaii. I hadn't thought of there, but it would be interesting wouldn't it? I'd have to do some serious research and a trip would be in order, I'm sure. Since I've never been there, I would have to really check out the locals.

    ~ Sandy

  30. Estella ~ How do I pick the names of my characters? Well, sometimes I'll go through the name lists online, but it's with a general idea of the characters personality and things. Most of the time, a name will jump out at me from the list and I'll know that's what my character is trying to say is his or her name. Sometimes, I have a name in my mind before I even start the story. Those are great, because that means the character is already forming and taking shape.

    ~ Sandy

    ReplyDelete
  31. Marie ~ Yes, the second one in the series in currently in progress. It's titled Before The Night Is Over and is due for release late March.

    The names Cade and Kale fit the characters from the beginning. Actually, Cade is my grandson's name so it slid right in there, but Kale popped into my head as I was writing the beginnings of the story. When Cade called his friend on the phone to tell him who he'd pulled from the ditch, I could picture Kale so clearly in my mind, that it was impossible to name him anything else.

    I like simple names for my characters too. Something difficult to pronounce and it has to fit with the last name being used as well. The characters in Love Me Once, Love Me Twice are Natalie Bennington, Cade Weston and Kale Dunn. Simply loveable.

  37. Hi Sandy!! I Love all of your westerns and this ones no exception!! I think you write very well, Usually not every book of a writers is a hit, so far I've liked every one of your books. So did you go to college or anything, where did you learned how to write? I know you were a nurse so I'm guessing you didn't, which is even more amazing becasue it's pure talent!! Congrats on the latest book!! Hugs, Christine

  38. Hi Christine,

    I didn't go to college for writing. As far as where I learned to write? I started writing several years ago, but I never finished a piece completely. I was between jobs back in 2007 and needed something to do. I sat down at the computer and wrote Texas Lady. The story came alive on paper and several friends said I should get it published. I wrote two more and then sent one off to Siren. Cowboy Love was accepted and away we went. I have learned over time what makes a book stronger and how to bring the story to life with the words written. It's been a fabulous experience and I thank the editors I've worked with for helping me learn the craft on the way. You have to be open to someone telling you the story isn't that great and you need to fix this or that.

    I've made some fantastic friends along and way and I thank my beta readers, Hales, Ariana, Drea and Shaylynn, for giving me the low down and not sparing my feelings by saying, "Oh yeah. It's great." That's not what an author needs to hear. They need someone to say, "This doesn't work for me."

    Now that I've written a book. Off I go to write more.

    Thanks again for your lovely comments.

  39. Hi Sandy,
    Congrats on the new release, it sounds wonderful. Can't wait to read this one.

    Do you use real people for any of the characters in your books? Or do any of the characters in your books resemble people in your life?

  42. Mary ~ My characters resemble people I know sometimes. Not always though. My hero always resembles my husband in some facet of his personality. I do have a tendency to put people who have really pisses me off, in a book. LOL They are usually the women who "don't" get the guy.
