Cowboys and Lawmen Blog Hop! Why I Love Sheriffs….

Today I’m thrilled to be part of the Cowboys and Lawmen Blog Hop. I’m giving away a ten dollar gift certificate to below. I hope you’ve set aside some time to browse the other blog stops and throw your cowboy hat into the ring to compete for lots of great prizes and giveaways!

Here’s some general information about the Blog Hop:

Join nearly 50 authors as we share why we love Cowboys and Lawmen. Cowboys are known as bad-boys, but what happens when the bad-boy is also the law in town? What is it about these contradictions that make small town sheriffs, Texas Rangers and ex-outlaws-turned-lawmen so irresistible? As you enjoy some awesome blogs and find fantastic books, for every post you comment on with your email address, you will be entered for some amazing prizes.


Grand Prize: At least a $75 Gift Card for Amazon or Barnes and Noble, your choice. The winner will be chosen at random from comments containing email addresses, and will be announced on May 7. This is open to both US and international readers.

My favorite sheriff of all time isn’t actually a sheriff at all. He’s a marshall, the federal equivalent of the local sheriff. Raylan Givens, Deputy U.S. Marshall, is the star of the television show Justified, and while he isn’t your traditional “western” sheriff, he wears a cowboy hat and is the quintessential bad good guy.
