I did my November post on the Cowboy Kisses blog on the above subject and thought some of you might get a kick out of it.

Great theory, Kate. I’m past the age for athletic experiments, but I’ve spent enough hours in both Western and English saddles and even on a horse bareback to draw informed conclusions. If some young sprout wants to conduct experiments and prove I’m wrong, she’s welcome to start a porn career from the saddle, but I’ll be one of those reporting her and her chosen co-experimenter to PETA. 🙂 ~Ellen
Thanks for one saddle one butt. Post made me laugh/snort. Not being a horse rider nor familiar with the western saddles up close I had always been suspect of that part in a storyline. thinking of the practicality would ‘drop’ me out of the story which incorrect stuff does(beyond artistic licence that is and just being plain wrong nor possible). Ta!
I loved your blog about sex in the saddle. It reinforced why I love your writing so much. I just discovered you about a month ago and have now read all your books, including the extra chapters available on your website, which I so enjoyed. I ended with Sing My Name. I dragged it out as long as possible, because I realized I wouldn’t have anymore of your stories to read, until you release a new book. I also loved you blog on cliches. Cliches are the reason I struggle to find a romance author I can tolerate, let alone love. The ravishing heroine who is loved for her inner beauty, but just “happens” to be beautiful, also. The bad boy hero, blah, blah, blah. I love your heroines, your heroes, and quite simply, your stories. I started with Dancing on Coals and knew after that story, I was hooked. Please, don’t leave Romance. The genre needs you. I can’t wait to read your next story. Good stories, there’s nothing like them.
Hi Gwen and welcome. I’m glad you liked all of the books out so far and hope you feel the same about the next one. Finding enough good books to feed the reading appetite is a problem all of us share, I’d bet. It isn’t just romance, either. I read mysteries and thrillers too, and finding new ones that satisfy in those genres can be just as frustrating. I reread an entire cozy mystery series recently rather than search for new.
I still have a list of a bunch of standard romance character types and plot points that I’m not fond of and will post about a few more soon. Plus I have a couple of new ones inspired by a recent foray into a new-to-me author’s books recommended in a Historical Romance thread on Kindle Boards.
Needless to say, I hope those who are fond of some of these things that I don’t like won’t hold it against me.
