The Lure of Cowboys
Hats: I don't know about you, but there's something about how a cowboy angles his hat to shade his face. That cute little tug he does to pull it firmly in place can cause a heart to flutter. And, the gallant "tip" of his hat to impress a woman can melt the heroine's heart in a flash.
Tone/twang: It's all in the accent. Put a cowboy hat on a hero and he speaks fluent "rugged outdoors/ranch, along with lots of courteous "ma'ams". That slight drawl, lazy and well-accented, will surely catch the heroine's interest.
Jeans: No doubt a major lure. Take one well-toned, cowboy, pour him into form-fitting jeans, and be sure to have your heroine check him out from all angles. He'll be as good-looking in the front as well as causing heart palpitations as he swaggers away and gives the heroine a rear view.
Horse: No doubt the cowboy bonds with his horse. Mounting that horse and riding into the sunset creates images of being whisked away into a fantasy escape. Of course, the heroine needs to be sitting in front of the cowboy, enjoying the close proximity to her hero cowboy as they bounce along at the horse's pace.
So, why don't I write about cowboys? Hmm. Need to add that to my "to do" list. A man in jeans is a man in jeans. A cowboy in jeans is a whole other image. Yee-Ha!
Now for some SKATING COWBOYS!
