For anyone who might want to give this genre a try, I just finished a fantastic anthology called Cowboy Up, http://www.paperbackswap.com/book/details/9781933389790-Cowboy+Up.  It has stories by 10 different authors, so it's a good way to give different writers a try without a big commitment.  They are all about cowboys (of course ;) but range from historical settings to modern-day ranchers and rodeo riders - and I honestly enjoyed them all.  They have varying levels of erotica from smokin' hot to one with no love scene at all.  But they are all really *romantic*, and a couple even made me cry.  I have a longer review on the book page itself, but bottom line (yes, pun intended :) I'm not parting with my copy of this awesome collection.

Susanna - Wow, you're right!  I never noticed that because I already *knew* it was m/m.  PBS sneaks the "Gay & Lesbian" identifier in there under the Subject line.

Rebecca - the next collection by the same editor is called "Under This Cowboy's Hat" http://www.paperbackswap.com/book/details/9781934166338-Under+This+Cowboys+Hat but it has 3 long stories instead of many short ones.

grrrr.....I keep trying to put this on my wish list but it is not showing up. I get a message saying that I have added it but it is not there when I check my list. Does PBS only allow a certain number of people to request it at one time?

Maybe you're sorting by author?  Try sorting another way and see if it appears.
