#RomanticIdea with Barbara White Daille



This summer I’ll be sharing romantic ideas with an awesome group of romance authors. Today I’d like to welcome Harlequin author Barbara White Daille. Cowboy in Charge, is her new release. And I’m over visiting her blog HERE.



Barbara White DailleMeet Barbara White Daille ~ Barbara lives with her husband in the sunny Southwest. Though they love the warm winters and the lizards in their front yard, they haven’t gotten used to the scorpions in the bathroom.

Cowboy in Charge, the latest book in The Hitching Post Hotel series, is a brand-new release! Other books in the series will follow. A larger print reissue of A Rancher’s Pride, book one in Barbara’s popular Flagman’s Folly series, is now available exclusively from Harlequin, while the e-book version is available everywhere. And at the end of 2016, she begins a new sweet romance series for Entangled Bliss.



Here is Barbara’s summer #RomanticIdea ~ Every July, my thoughts naturally turn to what we can do to stay cool. Considering the heat wave most of us have been suffering through for a while now, those thoughts have been a priority lately!

Here’s an idea that’s also a sweet treat…take your significant other to a nice, cool ice-cream parlor, where you can share a sundae or a banana split. And if you want to be especially sweet, make sure to give him or her most of the whipped cream and all of the cherry on top. 🙂 

Sounds like a cool way to spend time together! Speaking of treats, the heroine from her new release, Cowboy in Charge, is in for one, though she doesn’t know it yet


Single mom Layne Slater thought she’d seen the last of Jason McAndry when he chose the rodeo over her and their unborn son. Now Jason’s back in Cowboy Creek and just as handsome as ever. But Layne can’t give in to those feelings again. She has to protect her children…and her heart.

Jason wants to try to make up for the pain he caused when he left. The least he can do is help Layne while he’s home. Before long, Jason realizes he’s finally ready to be the husband, father and man his family deserves. But can Jason prove to Layne that this time, their love is forever?


Enjoy an excerpt from Cowboy in Charge ~

“Rhea said the baby didn’t take her extra bottle today. We can drop it off at Shay’s along with the kids.”

“You didn’t arrange that, too?” Layne asked sharply.

He shot a glance at her. “Thanks. Do you really think I’d conspire to keep Jill from getting her milk?”

“I’m sorry.” She flushed. She had been so focused on finding out what Jason was up to, she hadn’t watched how she worded the question. “I just meant you might have asked Rhea to space out the bottle feedings a little more.”

“Well, I didn’t. And Jill doesn’t always take her extra bottle.”

His confident knowledge of her daughter’s habits made her breath catch.

“Besides,” he went on, “if there hadn’t been a bottle left, I’d have adjusted my plans to let you get a feeding in.”

Plans? I knew it. You do have more in mind than just giving me a night off.” Why did the thought both irritate and excite her?

“Oh, I’ve got big plans for you tonight, sweetheart. When we get home, I’m running you a nice warm bath and then letting you slip into something comfortable…”


“I was thinking of your fuzzy blue robe. And while you’re unwinding, I’m heading over to SugarPie’s to pick up supper for us and then to the Big Dipper to grab a pint of your favorite ice cream.”

“Oh, really? And what’s the point of all this? Because if you’re thinking what I think you’re thinking—” She stopped, too tongue-tied and tense—and maybe too turned-on—to keep track of where she was headed with all those thoughts.

She was as determined as ever to protect her kids. Yet she seemed to have lost her ability to protect herself. Despite everything, she wanted this night with Jason. She wanted playfulness and understanding and kisses and more….
