Blog tour: Cowboy Town by Kasey Millstead

Cowboy Town by Kasey Millstead
Ever since her parents passed away in a tragic car accident, Eden Cross has been living a quiet, stable and predictable life in inner Sydney - the total opposite of her carefree, relaxed, happy-go-lucky past. Her parents passing and the fact she's an only child meant Eden was left with her best friend, Jules and Matt, her boyfriend of three years as her only family. That was until she discovered something about Matt that would turn her life upside down. Eden leaves Sydney in a hurry and begins an adventure that takes her across four Australian states before she lands in Pine Creek, Northern Territory.
Jackson Henley has lived in Pine Creek his entire life. He runs a massive cattle and cropping station with his twin brother, Jeremy, which they inherited when their parents retired. He's had a bad experience with relationships courtesy of The Bitch - Dannika, so lately he's preferred to play the field. That is, until he comes face to face with the stunning brunette beauty who's behind the bar at the Lazy Lizard. The problem is, she won't tell him her name, she won't give him the time of day, and she won't give him a chance to prove himself.
What's it going to take for Eden to give Jackson a chance? Does he have the patience to even bother fighting for her? How will he handle the competition?
In the end, will Jackson have what it takes to convince Eden to start living again, instead of just existing?
*I'm 29 years old
* I've been married to my husband Troy for 10 years and together we have 4 children - Zach, Jovi, Demi& Cruz.
* I live in a small country town in NSW, Australia
* I love to read and write
* I love to bake
* I love socializing
* My friends laugh at me because I will talk to anyone, anywhere.  It's funny now but it wasn't so funny for my mum when she had to drag me away from strange homeless people at the train station when I was little, and I may or may not have been going to go in crop dusting plane with a man I'd just met when I was about 4!!
* I read fiction until I was 11 years old.  After that I read non-fiction, true crime, bio's etc.  When my son Jovi passed away in a drowning accident in 2011, I found I couldn't bring myself to read nonfiction anymore - it was too "real".  Fifty Shades was dominating the media so I got myself a copy and I'm not ashamed to say I read all three of those books at least ten times each.  They allowed me to forget my reality for a little while.  Then I decided that I was going to follow my dreams and write.  I wanted to show my children that just because their brother died, didn't mean they did or our family did.  I want them to reach for the stars and chase their dreams, and the best way to do that is to lead by example!

“Please?” He leans in and kisses me softly, “Give me a chance to show you how good it can be between us.” Kiss.  “You can’t tell me you don’t feel that current between us.” Kiss.  “Have dinner with me?” Kiss.  “Let me cook for you.” Kiss.  “I want you.”  When he comes in to lightly kiss me again, I wrap my hands around his neck and deepen the kiss.  He groans and presses deeper into me.  My nipples harden and I feel wetness gather between my thighs.  I moan when his tongue enters my mouth, sending bolts of electricity shooting through my body.  He presses in harder again and this time I feel the effect our kiss is having on him.  His hands snake from my waist to down around my ass where he grips me and pulls me against him.  All too soon he pulls back slightly, “Say you’ll have dinner with me.”


Goodreads -

Interview(feel free to do any or all of the questions, including or excluding the lightning round)
--The Twitter version: tell us about your book in 140 characters or less.
Set in Australia’s Northern Territory, Cowboy Town is the hot, sexy romance of city girl Eden, and cowboy Jackson.
--How did you get the idea for the story?
I just wanted to write something that was different, but also what I know so Cowboy Town was born.
--Which character would you most/least like to have dinner with?
Most: Either Jules, because she’s hilarious.  Or, Oscar, because his character is based on my son.
Least: Dannika.  She’s a nasty piece of work!
--Do you have any other works in progress? Any teasers or release dates?
Up next is Ava and Jeremy’s story in Sky Cowboy.  It will hopefully be released at the end of September.
--What book(s) is your book’s “cousin”? (Similar kind of read, set-up or style)
I have no idea.  The readers will have to tell me!  I haven’t read anything similar before.
--What are some of your favorite books? Do you still have much time to read?
I always have time to read!  I love the Fifty Shades trilogy.  I also love Kristen Ashley and Madeline Sheehan books.  There’s too many to name!!

--If a fairy godmother told you could be put into the world of your favorite book for 24 hours, which book would you pick and why?
Oh man! What a tough question.  I think I’d like to be in a Rock Chick book.  I’d love to meet Daisy – she’s bloody hilarious.

--Do you need anything to write (music, coffee, etc)? Are there any songs on your playlist- songs that inspired you or that were playing while you wrote?
Not really.  I just like to sit and write.  If I’m writing a scene where a particular song is mentioned, then I will listen to it as I write the scene.  But other than that, I don’t really like to listen to music while writing.  I find it distracting – I want to sing along, instead! ;)

--If you could have any superpower what would you choose?
Without a doubt, I would choose to bring people back from Heaven.

--Besides writing, what do you like to do in your free time?
Socialize, bake, scrapbook, watch TV, spend time with my family.  Just the usual stuff.
--What is one thing you would tell your 15 year old self?
Don’t stress.  Life’s too short.

--Is there anything else you want to add or say to your readers?
I hope you all enjoy Cowboy Town.  Thanks so much for all the support you’ve given me.  It means the world to me.
