Help me welcome guest author, Debra Kayn!


She's one of my fellow Entangled Publishing authors and has a great book out for the June Indulgence releases.


One of my favorite holidays is the 4th of July. It’s relaxing, a time for family and friends, and we can stuff ourselves silly on hamburgers and hotdogs. One of the ways we celebrate is making homemade vanilla ice cream. Forget all the newfangled ice cream makers. You have to use the big ol’ ones that take rock salt and 45 minutes of motor crankin’ fun.


Most of all, I love the community spirit. We all come together for a good time and to enjoy the summer weather. We forget about chores at home, crops growing or not growing, and talk about what we should be doing before winter hits.


In my Sisters of McDougal Ranch series, the McDougal’s throw a party every year on the 4th. They eat, converse with friends and neighbors, then they all settle down to watch the fireworks go off on the ranch. Sparklers aren’t the only thing sparkin’. When you have five wild McDougal girls, there’s always a little hanky panky going on too! How do you celebrate the 4th of July? What’s your favorite part about the day?

When widower and land baron Cole Reardon acquired the Turner Grain Corporation, he didn't know the company sponsored a bull rider. He refuses to support thrill-seekers dumb enough to get on the back of a crazed animal. He’s not willing to risk his fortune and livelihood when he has his daughter's well-being to consider. Not even when the bull rider is the sexiest woman he's ever seen.

Bull rider Florentine McDougal plans to turn pro after the season championship, fulfilling her lifelong dream of succeeding in a man’s world. That is, until Cole Reardon shows up and threatens to break his sponsorship contract with her. Now everything she’s worked for is less than eight seconds away from being destroyed.

Cole distracts Florentine with his sexy mouth and unreasonable demands, and he's not going to compromise his integrity. But she's not going to let him loose until she has pro status. And neither will come away from this dust-up unscathed. [/box]


Multi-published Romance Author, Debra Kayn, lives with her family in the beautiful coastal mountains of Oregon on a hobby farm. During the summer, she enjoys riding motorcycles, gardening, playing tennis, and fishing. During the winter, you’ll find her outside playing in the snow. A cold weather nut, she lives for the days she’s snowbound and fighting with the woodstove to keep the house warm when the power goes out. A huge animal lover, she always has a dog under her desk when she writes and chickens standing at the front door looking for a treat. She's famous in her family for teaching a 270 lb pig named Harley to jog with her every morning.


Her love of family ties and laughter makes her a natural to write heartwarming contemporary stories to the delight of her readers. As someone who met her husband on a blind date when she was nineteen years old, she’s a believer of love at first sight and happily ever after.
