Thats when I saw himthe cowboyacross the smoky room.

Ill never forget that night. It was like a romance novel, an old Broadway musical, and a John Wayne Western rolled into one. Out for a quick drink with friends, I wasnt looking to meet anyone, let alone a tall, rugged cowboy who lived on a cattle ranch miles away from my cultured, corporate hometown. But before I knew it, Id been struck with a lightning bolt . . . and I was completely powerless to stop it.

This isnt just my love story; its a universal tale of passion, romance, and all-encompassing love that sweeps us off our feet.

Its the story of a cowboy. And Wranglers. And chaps. And the girl who fell in love with them.
