Interview with Mina Beckett, Author of The Heartbreak Cowboy

  1. Tell us a little bit about your book. 

The Heartbreak Cowboy is the first full-length book in my Coldiron Cowboys series. McCrea and Eleanor fell in love years ago, but because of fear and circumstances chose to walk away after one night together. The story introduces McCrea to a daughter he never knew existed. It forces him and Eleanor to overcome the mistakes of their past and mend fences for the sake of their daughter.

The Cowboy’s Goodnight Kiss is a prequel to this book and was written so readers could experience the backstory of what happened between McCrea and Eleanor four years earlier.  It’s a free download on my website but doesn’t have to be read before The Heartbreak Cowboy. It’s my gift to readers.

  1. Are you currently working on anything else? I’m writing the second book in the series, The Fallen Cowboy, Jess and Mallory’s story.  Here’s the blurb.

Out of commission saddle bronc rider Jess Coldiron is putting his horse skills to work by serving as the Executive Director of the Promise Point Horse Rescue Ranch.

Jess’s gift for taming wild broncos and pretty women has taught him that both can take a man from zero to ninety in seconds, shake him senseless, and damn near kill him if he landed the wrong way. And Jess had. So bumping anything but heads with the beautiful Mallory Montgomery ─ his sister-in-law’s estranged sister ─ is out of the question.

Mallory came to Santa Camino, Texas, to fulfill her mother’s dying wish of reuniting with her sister, not to fall for a cowboy with a Texas-sized chip on his shoulder about the limp in his swagger and the woman in his past. But the ruggedly handsome, once famous bronc rider has a sexy smile and a fiery touch that ignites a spark in her every time they’re together.

Mallory knows there’s only one way to get Jess back in the saddle, but she wants more than he’s willing to give. And seducing the fallen cowboy may cost Mallory her heart.

  1. What gets you in the mood to write? I don’t have to be in a mood to write. If I’ve set a deadline, I know I have to write that book and reach my daily word goal. 
  2. Who is your favorite character and why? That’s a tough question to answer because I don’t have a favorite character. But I have more fun writing the secondary characters like Jess, Louisa and Brody. They tend to act out more because they know the story isn’t about them and that they’re just there to help move the story along. They also know I’m plotting their story, their character arcs, their happy-every-after and that whatever they do as secondary characters they’ll pay for later when I write their story. For instance, there’s a scene in The Heartbreak Cowboy where Eleanor and her tribe are eating cookies and talking about the hot new guy Violet has hired to help her in the coffee shop. Here’s how it goes…

Louisa shoved a bite of cookie into her mouth. "These things are phenomenal."

"Mmm..." Sage's moan was one of praise.

Violet broke one in half and took a nibble. "They're Joel's special recipe."

 "The man bakes?" Louisa whined and licked the tips of her fingers. "Please, God, let him be straight."

"Do you really need a man who bakes?" Sage questioned.

“No,” she said, dusting the crumbs from her fingers. “But I wouldn’t mind eating cookies in his bed.”


Brody Vance, Louisa’s leading man will be showing off his baking skills in Breaking the Cowboy, the third and final book in the series.


  1. Please tell us in one sentence why we should read your book! The Heartbreak Cowboy is a sexy and emotional, second chance romance that will have you laughing, crying and routing for a happy ending from the very first chapter!


*Old flames burn hotter the second time around...*

It’s been four long years since McCrea Coldiron watched Eleanor Mackenna
walk out of his life. He wasn’t ready for the marriage noose then and never
thought he would be. Single, free to do as he pleases, and running the
Promise Point Horse Rescue Ranch are the things that make him sure he was
right to let Eleanor go… This is until she comes back to town with a
daughter he never knew about in tow.

Eleanor knows just how badly McCrea can burn a woman and how persuasive
he can be when he wants something, so she’s more than cautious about
his charming words and cocky grin when she comes home to arrange the
sale of her grandparents’ ranch. But when a flat tire in a thunderstorm
introduces four-year-old Sophie to her daddy, Eleanor knows McCrea’s love
for his daughter is genuine. Can she trust it will be the same for her? As
the icy walls around her heart begin to melt, Eleanor must find the courage
to trust her heart or run away from the man who has always owned it.

About Mina Beckett

Mina and her husband live on a small farm in the beautiful Appalachian Mountains of southern Kentucky. She's an artist, an avid reader, a dog lover, and a miniature horses enthusiast. Life in her corner of the world consists of long winter nights curled up by the fire, cheering on her favorite football teams in the fall, enduring March Madness in the spring and walking barefoot through her garden with a cold jar of tea in the summer fireflies at sunset accompanied by a serenade of crickets and frogs, and lazy nights in the porch swing.
