How to Kiss a Cowboy
"How To Kiss A Cowboy is rich with characters, dialog and insight. Kennedy's characters are sexy, smart, troubled, flawed — real."—Fresh Fiction
The last person barrel racer Suze Carlyle wants to see on her doorstep is the man who ended her career, but Saddle Bronc Champion Brady Caine wants to make up for his mistake.
Winning comes naturally to bronc rider Brady Caine. Ruggedly handsome, careless and charismatic, the rodeo fans adore him and the buckle bunnies are his for the taking. He’s riding high when he lands an endorsement deal with Lariat Western Wear that pairs him up with champion barrel racer Suze Carlyle.
When a stupid move on Brady’s part lands Suze in the hospital, her career in tatters, it’s a whole new game for both of them. Brady is desperate to help Suze rebuild her life, but he’s the last person she wants around now. Suze’s got plenty of grit and determination—learning to trust Brady again is a very different matter.

The rough-and-tumble world of the Wyoming rodeo circuit is brought vividly to life in Kennedy's memorable second Cowboys of Decker Ranch contemporary (after How to Handle a Cowboy). Suze Carlyle is a champion barrel rider in Wyoming who has had eyes for cowboy Brady Caine since she was a teenager, but she considers herself too smart just to become another notch on his belt. When the two wind up in bed together anyway, they both try to pretend it was nothing but a one-night stand, and they both know better. After an accident injures Suze and threatens to derail her career, Brady stays by her side, his callous attitude slowly developing into thoughtfulness and sensitivity. Kennedy imbues the setting with intense realism, and readers will love her intensely complex characters and depictions of deep emotion.
