I just read Staying the Distance and I loved it.  Does anyone else know of any lesbian romances or mysteries with horses in it?  Cowgirls?

SUPER!  Thanks :)

This appears to be more erotica than romance, do you know if it is?  I am more into romance like soft-core stuff.  Not that I won't read this ... but it is just a preference.  Of course if the story is mostly plot (good plot!) and some sex that's OK :)

Sarah... I have no idea, really. I have that site bookmarked and went to see if there was anything related to  horses/cowgirls. That book just happened to be featured. On the right-hand side of the page as you scroll down is a list of authors which links to their sites. Maybe some of the authors of that book have other novels with that theme(s).

One more I found...............

 

Braggin' Rights, by Kenna White. Bella Books, 296 pages, $13.95 paper.

Taylor Fleming is a defiantly independent cowgirl, happy to hop into bed for an occasional fling with a pretty girl. But she's even happier back in the saddle, rounding up heifers on the sprawling Texas ranch she runs with her hard-working father. Jen Holland is a struggling artist whose grumpy and estranged father is about to be evicted from his land, which borders the Fleming spread – and the Flemings aren't happy that the old man is rustling their cattle. So the two daughters despise each other? Sure. But when Taylor's legs are crushed in an accident, Jen's certification as a nursing attendant brings the two together – and it's no surprise that their relationship soon evolves from tense and bitter to two-girls-in-love. White's well-paced romance is enlivened by a slew of secondary characters, most memorably an older lesbian who's the handiest cowhand on the ranch. But what sets this story apart from the girl-meets-girl norm is the ending – it's happily ever after, sure, but with a plot twist that's quite emotionally wrenching.

Have you tried The Big Book of Lesbian Horse Stories? I haven't read it, but Monica Nolan's newest book, Lois Lenz, Lesbian Secretary is hilarious!

How in the world can you tell if it is a gay book or not without reading it?

I had B&N order the big book of lesbian horse stories today.  It sounds funny.  Oh and Regina there are certain publishers who cater to gay readers, so there's a clue, and also that book Staying the Distance that I picked up said right on the back cover something like "Finally lesbians have a book about horses all their own".  So stuff like that ;)

I just finished reading Stoner MacTavish, and she's a travel agent in Boston, but is convinced by her aunt to go to Wyoming and check up on the granddaughter of a friend.  The friend doesn't like her granddaughter's new husband and suspects he means to do her harm.  So she goes, and while she's not a western type, she does go horseback riding with some scary results.  Maybe that isn't quite what you're looking for, but I found her escapades in the mountains very exciting.
