Today my guest is Matt Cartwright, the hero from A Cowboy’s Promise by Marin Thomas, a Harlequin American Romance that is available this month!
Matt Cartwright is one of the top tie-down ropers on the rodeo circuit but looking to retire from rodeo and start up his own horse-breeding business. He’s the eldest biological son of Dominick Cartwright, Oklahoma‘s famous oil baron. His step-brother, Duke Dalton, appeared in The Cowboy and the Angel (Nov 08).
Here are Matt’s responses to my infamous “Complete the Sentences”…
I am a sucker for women who struggle with bad luck and bad times. Women who don’t have their act together. Women who need my help but not me. I’m a sucker for Amy.
I like tall, slim, dark-haired women–that is until I met Amy. Then my preference changed to short, busty with bouncy blond curls.
I love the feel of Amy’s soft curly hair against my face when we kiss.
I dream of starting up my own cutting-horse operation. My old man wants me to follow in his footsteps and enter the oil business, but I prefer the smell of a rank barn to crude any day.
I wish I could take back that night in Pocatello, Idaho when I met up with Amy’s husband.
I wonder if I should take my chances or pack up my mares and leave the Broken Wheel Ranch before I can no longer keep my hands off Amy.
I pretend to know what I’m doing but I haven’t got a clue how to babysit a toddler and a first-grader.
I know one thing for sure–if Amy thinks I’m going to walk away and not collect on her husband’s debt, then she hasn’t yet met a determined man.
I fear rats. Hated the furry things since I was kid and got bit by one. And I’m going to put a stop to Amy’s daughter befriending the rodent in the barn.
I worry about my strong instinct to protect Amy and her girls. It’ll just make leaving them all the more difficult.
I hope to hell I can prove Son of Sunshine didn’t attack Amy’s husband. If I can’t, the stallion won’t be worth the glue they make out of him at the factory.
I want only what’s owed me–to breed my mares to the famous Son of Sunshine.
I need help corralling two pint-sized females and I’m hoping the soft fencing and walkie talkies I purchased at the feed store are just the ticket to keep the little fillies out of trouble while I work with Son if Sunshine.
I will do everything in my power to make sure Amy hangs onto her Idaho horse farm. It’s the least I can do after conning her husband into a card game I knew he couldn’t win.
I dance to These Boots Are Made For Walkin’ by Nancy Sinatra. My dad wore that song out after my mother left us when I was nothing but a tyke.
I never knew what Silly Nilly’s were until I volunteered my services as a cowboy nanny.
I Hate bankers, like Payton Scott, who threaten young widows trying to keep a roof over her little girls’ heads.
Thanks Matt (and Marin for getting my questions to Matt).
