Character Interview from Tie Down My Heart

Tie-Down-My-Heart200x300

Today I’m featuring an interview with the Native American hero of my contemporary rodeo western romance, Tie Down My Heart. Chay Red Fox hasn’t had an easy life but it’s been one he’s lived on his own terms. Like the hero portrayed in the current movie, “The Longest Ride”, rodeo is what Chay knows and loves.

How about you introduce yourself by providing the basics?

Chayton Red Fox, of the Foot-Trails People and born for the Deer Spring clan. I’ve reached the end of the third decade of my life. For better or worse.

Where were you raised?

Navajo Nation in New Mexico.

Family members?

A grandmother, older sister and nephew

Did you attend college?

More like the school of hard knocks. I trailed my father around rodeos whenever he’d left me, watching and learning, and they finally let me compete when I turned sixteen.

What’s your favorite participation sport?

(Quirks an eyebrow) Really? Isn’t the answer obvious?

Did you always want to be a rodeo competitor?

Always loved horses—it’s in the blood, you know. I wanted to do anything that got me off the rez and into the wide world.

Where did you go for your most recent vacation?

Vacation? That’s a concept of the white world. Natives take a walk on Mother Earth or sit beside a clear running stream and feel re-energized.

What attracts you first to a woman?

A woman who doesn’t back down to my cynical mouth.

Are you talking about a particular woman?

(Chuckles) That’d be saying too much.

My Sexy Saturday-Tie Down My Heart

Tie-Down-My-Heart200x300

Here are 7 paragraphs that served to introduce the main characters in Tie Down My Heart, a contemporary western novella set in the rodeo world released by Decadent Publishing.

~~~

For an instant, her shoulders sagged until she pulled on the natural persistence that her daddy claimed was strengthened by years of beauty-pageant competition. “Now, don’t be hasty. A bit of press is always good for a rodeo-rider’s career. I saw those posters on my way in. The association spent a chunk of change to promote those riders.” She studied his face and thought she recognized him as a bronc rider. “A good story could boost ticket sales for the next event.”

“Those posters aren’t new. Do you even know who I am?” He settled his hat more firmly on his head, then squared his stance and crossed both arms over his muscled chest.

Which only pumped his biceps into rounded bulges that she fought to ignore. This man’s body was honed and chiseled with no sign of fat anywhere. “If I know, do I get the interview?”

“Depends.”

“On what?” Her gaze narrowed on the smirk that threatened his lips.

“Dunno.” A shoulder lifted in a shrug. “I leave my options open.”
