Beyond the Book: Cowgirls


Welcome to another edition in my Cowgirls series. Not all cowgirls herded cattle and knew how to shoot. I'm betting that Abigail Scott Duniway probably didn't. Duniway was born in Illinois and traveled to the Oregon Territory in 1852. She taught herself almost everything she knew, and read every newspaper she could get her hands on.

She became a follower of Elizabeth Cady Stanton and started campaigning  for women's rights. She also started a newspaper and became a schoolteacher. In 1886, the National Women's Suffrage Convention convened in Washington, DC, and named her as the most influential women's advocate in the West.

She became the first registered female voter in her county when Oregon granted women the right to vote in 1912. She was 78 years old. Unfortunately, she died five years before a constitutional amendment granted women the right to vote.

This series on cowgirls is in honor of my heroine in Rest Thy Head. Peyton found Rest Thy Head and learned to ride horses, explore caves, and talk to ghosts.

EXCERPT:

From "Summer Rhythm" by Brandy L. Rivers

Intending to head for the bar, Chloe got lost in a daydream when she stepped through the door. A familiar song caught her attention. Glancing up, her gaze locked on her biggest regret.

Molten brown eyes, shaggy brown hair, perfectly curved lips twisted in a sinful smirk. That sexy mouth, and talented fingers—and damn, the man could play an instrument. Nearly any.

Smoldering eyes locked on hers for a brief second, igniting hope. Then his brow furrowed as he looked away. Closing his lids, Doug Walsh threw himself into the music like he wanted to banish her from his mind. She couldn’t blame him.

Her desire was a cruel twist of fate. He was even hotter than the last time she saw him, eight years ago. A twinge of guilt thrummed through her and she turned, with the intention of walking out the door.

Someone looped their arm through hers and dragged her toward the bar.

“Thought I mentioned your favorite mistake was playing tonight,” Jackie sing-songed. They’d been best friends since kindergarten. As much as Chloe loved her, Jackie was going to torture her.

She didn’t want to think about the way she’d let Doug in, only to shut him out the next morning. Not once, but twice.

Hopeless, she looked over. “If you had, I wouldn’t have come.”

With a dejected sigh, she climbed onto a stool and dropped her chin into her hand. Nodding at the bartender, she ordered, “Long Island, please?”

Bartender dipped his head in acknowledgement.

Jackie nudged her. “Why not? Clearly you’re still hung up on him. I saw your reaction.”

“He probably hates me.”

“Nah. He never let it slow him down.”

Her mouth fell open. “Are you saying Doug turned into a man-whore?”

Jackie’s brow scrunched. “Not exactly. Though he doesn’t have a problem picking up women.”

“That’s karma for you.” Chloe turned to find her drink. Tracing the disposable coaster, she took a sip from the tall glass before asking, “Why did you invite me here?”

“Figured it would be like old times. Only without having to sneak into bars.”

Chloe giggled. “What the hell. He’s already seen me and the worst he can do is ignore my sorry ass.”

A smirk lifted one corner of Jackie’s mouth as she looked to the stage. “Doubt he’ll ignore you long. He can’t seem to keep his eyes off you.”
