Wendell Blackowl has spent all his life in the working cow horse show ring where toiling with sweaty cowboys all day is the fodder for wet dreams. Though privately he’s come to terms with his sexuality, publicly Dell’s had to build a façade. When his beloved horse Buttermilk dies, Dell finds himself at loose ends so he decides to pick himself up by his boot straps and do what he’s always wanted to do… open an environmentally friendly organic vegetarian café.
Pace Avila, well known music critic, has been drawn to Austin by the live music scene. When friends invite him to check out a fresh new dinner experience, Pace reluctantly agrees to push the deadline on his national column. He isn’t interested in vegetarian food or a restaurant with the cheesy name of Buttermilk Ranch Café, but the moment Pace lays eyes on the stunning cowboy chef, things begin looking up.
When openly gay Pace walks into his cafe and his life, Dell realizes he’s tired of living a lie and tired of being alone. When Mother Nature throws an unprecedented storm at Austin, the muddy waters threaten to wipe out everything Dell’s worked so hard to build. He soon realizes that with a man like Pace by his side, love really can conquer all.

Today I’m very lucky to be interviewing Patricia Logan author of Buttermilk Ranch.
- What is your least favorite part of the publishing/writing process?
- I hate the gap between typing The End and release day when revisions and editing takes place.
- As an author, is there one subject you would never write about? What would it be?
- Yes. What would it be? Since I write so much BDSM, I would never write a story including scat or golden showers.
- When did you first realize you wanted to write?
- When I was very young, in grade school, I really wanted to be a writer but I never saw myself able to finish a book and never dreamed of being published.
- How long did it take to write this book?
- This one took about 5 weeks. It’s about 62,000 words.
- For Fun: Where is one place you’d like to visit you haven’t been before?
- I’d love to travel all over Europe. I’ve only been to Germany in Europe
“Yoo Hoo! Dell, ya up there, ya sidewinder! Get outa bed or I’m gonna drag that lazy ass out!”
“What?” Pace said, startled awake as he lifted his head from Dell’s chest where he’d fallen asleep in the wee hours of the morning. He wiped his face of drool and stared across the muscled chest he loved, finding Dell’s face. He had one eye peeled open and he didn’t look all too happy by what sounded like Branch’s bellowing from downstairs.
“Fuckin’ ass poor timin’,” Dell grumbled as they both sat upright in bed. Pace knew it would be pretty awful if Branch came bursting into the room with them, lying buck naked in bed. “Guess I’d better find out just what the hell he’s doin’ here.” Pace watched as Dell threw his legs over the side of the bed. He watched his ass from behind, noting the muscled expanse of his back and the thick thighs he loved so much, as the man stood.
“What the hell is he doing here? He and the boys had a show,” Pace grumbled.
“Ya rattlesnake! Ya need me to come up there and put my boot up yer ass?” Branch howled. Pace couldn’t help but chuckle. He loved his brother but he loved the disgusted look on Dell’s face more. Dell walked to the doorway and stuck his head out.
“I’ll be down in a minute, ya jackass… unless ya want to see me in all my nekkid glory!” Dell yelled back.
Pace heard a chuckle coming from downstairs. “Hell naw! Get some clothes on there, scarecrow! Yer movin’ slower than a snake’s belly in a wagon rut.”
“Oh for Christ’s sake, here we go,” Dell said, glancing over at him. Pace just buried his face in the pillow and laughed.
This story was a huge hit for me. It was such an amazingly sweet story with a couple of fantastic characters. Dell and Pace just captured my heart from the moment I met them. I really liked the way Dell handles his “coming out” so to speak. It is done with so much lightness and humor. The interactions between Dell and Pace just made me melt.
Dell just has a feeling of such sincere niceness that you can’t help but love him. I like his kind of “roll with it” attitude. There are a few instances where you see a little bit of insecurity in Dell, but he always just pushed through and I like that. Pace is just so confident in himself that its fun to read. He is so understanding and nice when it comes to Dell’s inexperience.
I spent most of the time reading this smiling. I didn’t want the story to end, I could have kept reading about these two forever. The cast of secondary characters in the book just enriched it so much. Dell’s mom had me laughing so hard, and Paisley was just a dynamo. The story as a whole flowed really well. I can’t wait for more.
