Elizabeth Lane: The Countess and the Cowboy!

Elizabeth Lane is a western and contemporary romance author of over 40 books. She’s traveled to exciting places like Latin America, the Far East and Europe. You might say she’s an adventuring soul. But, her heart remains in the American West. Her idea of heaven is hiking a mountain trail on a clear autumn day. I’ve devoured Elizabeth Lane’s stories for many years and now I’m happy to present her new one to you.

Countess and the Cowboy


A new life in Wyoming!

Newly widowed, Eve Townsend is left with a grand title and not a penny to her name. She doesn’t know what future she can build in the Wild West…but she’s ready to learn, and to reunite with her family.

When she arrives in Wyoming, she discovers her beloved sister’s death and sets about caring for her niece and nephew. But burly Clint Lonigan is everywhere she turns! Even though he’s Eve’s opposite in every way, maybe a rough-mannered cowboy is just what this genteel countess needs…

Romantic Times magazine gave her 4 stars and had this to say:

Western fans are in for a wild ride. Lane has written a rip-roaring Western, from the first stagecoach robbery to the final shootout. This is a story about love, loyalty and sacrifice with authentic settings and lots of action.

Here’s your question…Do you like the “fish out of water” stories such as this one where an English woman travels to the old West? Do you think it adds another layer to the story or you find it distracting?

  1. I ought to like “fish out of the water” stories, it’s the life I lead. LOL Because it’s a feeling most of us have had at some time or another in our lives, I believe we are attracted to stories with that theme. Who hasn’t felt out of place at some time or other?
    You chose a wonderful state in which to place your story.
    I wish you all the best, Elizabeth.

    • Hi Sarah! Thanks for coming. So happy to see you, my friend. I’m glad you enjoyed reading about Elizabeth’s book. She’s such a talented author and a dear friend as well. You can’t get any more fish out of water then taking a Brit and plunking them down in the middle of the American West where every single thing was foreign.

      Take care, Sarah, and come back often.

    • Hi Anon 1001! Glad to see you, dear lady. I’m glad you enjoy Elizabeth’s books. She does write some good ones. A favorite of mine was Blood Moon. It was a time travel. A college woman doing research for her thesis was transported back to the old West. It was so funny. The cowboy thought he’d drank too much and was seeing things. A great story.

      I’ve entered you in the drawing. Good luck!

  2. I do like “fish out of water” stories because this would SO be me if I were transported to the Wild West! 🙂

    • Hi Cheryl C! Thank you for coming! Great to have you. Yeah, you and me both. LOL! I would be at a loss at how to survive without modern conveniences. I’d hate to live in a place where I knew nothing at all. I’d probably last 5 minutes.

  3. I do enjoy books like this, I read one by Kaki Warner one time that was like this and really enjoyed it. I really enjoy Elizabeth’s books so this should be really good.

    • Hi Quilt Lady! So happy to see you on this Monday morning with another new book. I think the book by Kaki Warner that you’re thinking about was Pieces of Sky. She was an Englishwoman and traveled to New Mexico. That was such a good story!

  4. I prefer reading “fish out of water” stories! These are my favorites because then I know the author took the “What if?” and went way beyond in composing a satisfying read. I’ve known Elizabeth Lane for many years, have read many of her stories and now The Countess and the Cowboy is at the top of my TBR list! I always know with Elizabeth’s books that I’ll have a wonderful time escaping from the realities of my life to enjoy her characters’ lives…

    • Hi Alice! Thank you for stopping by. Great to have you as always. Yes, Elizabeth is one of those authors that has staying power. She writes some of the best stories and each one is totally different. She has a way of drawing you in and holding you captive all the way through. Alice, I hope you find many, many stories that let you escape the realities of life.

    • Thanks for coming, BN100! I deeply appreciate your support. Sometimes a fish out of water story gives us something fresh to read. I think I’ll consider writing one! Good luck in the drawing!
