Interview & Review: Take Me Home, Cowboy by Krista Ames

Welcome to author Krista Ames.  She is promoting her latest release, Take Me Home Cowboy.  Check out her interview after my thoughts about the story.

Take Me Home, Cowboy (Western Escape)
Publisher: Decadent Publishing
Release Date: November 19, 2012

Ally Kincaid returns to Freewill, Wyoming, to see her father after a two year absence. Anticipating a quiet family reunion, she finds herself butting heads with her father’s foreman instead. The man’s arrogance and sexy drawl push all her buttons, making her wonder what he’s hiding beneath his cowboy swagger.

Matt Gentry walked away from the past and shies from the future. No ties means no one gets hurt…until the boss’s daughter, a hot, green-eyed blonde, tempts him to break his own rules.

When tragedy strikes, will building tension and pride destroy their growing attraction or show them the way home?

My Thoughts:
Take Me Home, Cowboy is a very quick read.  I'm always a sucker for a good cowboy love story.  Ally and Matt have an instant attraction.  Their one love scene was very hot!  My only regret was that the story was way too short.  I thought that it should have been longer with more of Ally and Matt together.  The HEA came too fast for me.  But that is why I have a love/hate relationship with novellas.  I always want more!  It's a sweet story that will make you want to find your own sexy cowboy!

Kari& Autumn: What inspired you to become a writer?

Krista: I think it was actually all the reading I was doing at the time.  One day I just thought ‘hey maybe I can do this’.  So after that, I started writing down some of my ideas and they expanded from there.

Kari& Autumn: Where do you come up with the ideas for your books?

Krista: In odd places lol.  Mainly it’s from a verse in a  song that I hear or it can even be a sign along the highway or sometimes commercials or even tv shows…just anywhere really.

Kari& Autumn: What exciting projects are waiting in the wings?

Krista: Well not sure how exciting they are but at least to me lol.  I have a follow-up to Take Me Home, Cowboy that I’m in the midst of. I just signed a contract with The Wild Rose Press for a novella where the hero is in the Navy plus writing 2 follow-ups to that one.  I also have a nearly finished MS about a mountain search & rescue heroine and a bull-headed cowboy J  I have several others that I’m working on as well, just can’t give any details as of yet. 

Kari& Autumn: Who is your favorite literary character and why?

Krista: I am a huge fan of Pride & Prejudice, HUGE!  I absolutely adore both Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth Bennett.  I think theirs is a great love story even though they both fought it with all they had in them.  I even watch that move or at least play it kind of quiet in the background when I need some inspiration to write J

Kari& Autumn: Just for fun, if you could be any animal, what would it be and why?

Krista: Wow, hmmm I think there are so many I could choose but some day sit might be nice to be my house cat….she has such the life, sleeping all day, playing when she wants and food & water always at her disposal.  Plus cats have 9 lives so there’s the potential for living a long time !
