“An adorable retelling, engaging and character-rich…this kind of mutual empowering is one of Weatherspoon’s hallmarks.”
-The New York Times

“Heart-melting…a perfect fit for fans of contemporary romance authors Jasmine Guillory and Alexa Martin.”
—Booklist

From award-winning author Rebekah Weatherspoon comes a thoroughly modern take on the timeless tale of a struggling Cinderella who finds her prince charming at the eleventh hour—and the adventure that ensues the morning after…

Working as the personal assistant to one of Hollywood’s cruelest divas has left Amanda Queen more determined than ever to sell her screenplay and gain her independence. In the meantime, she’ll settle for a temporary escape. When her employer is felled by the flu on Hollywood’s biggest night of the year, Amanda gets her glam on, struts out the door, and parties with the glitterati. But she never expects to come face to face—and closer than close—with one of the hottest stars in the game…

Following up his first Oscar win with a steamy after-hours romp with an enigmatic woman seems like the perfect way for actor Sam Pleasant to celebrate—until she suddenly disappears. Worse, she’s vanished with the wrong swag bag: the one containing his Oscar statue, leaving Sam even more intrigued about the beauty’s identity—and wondering if a repeat performance of their amazing night is in the stars. And when a second chance encounter happens, only a trip to Sam’s family ranch—and revealing the whole, not-always-glamorous, truth about themselves—will give them a chance to turn one magical night into forever…

“Wonderfully inventive…Uniting a heart-stopping hero and a plus-size heroine who knows her own worth, this steamy fairy tale shines.”
—Publishers Weekly STARRED REVIEW

“One of romance’s brightest stars…[this is] a thoroughly modern Cinderella story.”
—Bookpage, Starred Review

“Another winner from rising star Weatherspoon.”
—Library Journal, Starred Review

Story Locale: Hollywood and Charming, California

The first book in the series, A Cowboy to Remember, received fantastic reviews, including starred raves from Publishers Weekly, Booklist and BookPage. It was a Publishers Marketplace Buzz Books selection and PW, Bookriot, Kirkus and A Love so True all named it a Most Anticipated Romance of the Spring.

Award-winning author Rebekah Weatherspoon has garnered much acclaim for her self-published works, including a LAMBDA Literary Award, The Ripped Bodice Award for Excellence in Romantic Fiction, a RT Book Reviews Reviewers’ Choice Award, and a Golden Crown Literary Award.

As the founder and operator of WOC In Romance, Rebekah Weatherspoon has created a platform that promotes romances written by women of color and become a well-regarded name in the romance world.

This fresh twist on Cinderella finds a personal assistant to a megawatt celebrity/aspiring screenwriter disappear after a one-night stand with the actor who wins Best Actor the night of the Oscars. Only instead of leaving a slipper behind, she inadvertently runs off with his Oscar leading to him tracking her down. Contemporary twists of classic fairy tales are always in style.

Cowboys are always hot in contemporary romance, and this series combines the Western trope with fairytale inspiration and small-town romance. Set on a black-owned luxury dude ranch, this series has built in talking points on the growth and rise of black-owned businesses.

Rebekah Weatherspoon has a reputation for writing romances that are inclusive and full of consent. She’s been praised for writing BDSM novels that don’t kink-shame and F/F romances that don’t sensationalize the relationship. Though the Cowboys of California novels feature much less heat than her erotica, the series does include numerous characters who are representative of the LGBTQIA community.

Rebekah Weatherspoon is a multi award-winning romance author and the creator of WOCinRomance.com, an online resource for discovering romances written by women and non-binary people of color. Raised on the campus of Phillips Exeter Academy in Southern New Hampshire, Rebekah has BA in English with a concentration in Shakespearean works. She now lives in Southern California and can be found online at RebekahWeatherspoon.com and on Twitter at @rdotspoon.

Praise for If the Boot Fits
 

“Weatherspoon’s heart-melting follow-up to A Cowboy to Remember (2020) is a perfect fit for fans of contemporary romance authors Jasmine Guillory and Alexa Martin.”
Booklist
 
“One of romance’s brightest stars, Rebekah Weatherspoon is known for her sweet and steamy stories. With If the Boot Fits, the second in the Cowboys of California series, she  burnishes that reputation further, delivering a thoroughly modern Cinderella story about an aspiring screenwriter hesitantly falling for a sexy, celebrity, cinnamon-roll-sweet hero with swagger.”
Bookpage, Starred Review
 
“Although her vindictive boss has damaged her confidence and belief in herself, Amanda is surrounded by supportive friends and a steady, sexy, and respectful love interest in Sam. The sexual tension and flirty banter between the two will have readers rooting them on and anticipating Dru’s comeuppance. Another winner from rising star Weatherspoon.”
Library Journal, Starred Review

“One serendipitous night transforms an aspiring screenwriter’s life in this wonderfully inventive, Cinderella-inspired romance, the second in Weatherspoon’s Cowboys of California series Uniting a heart-stopping hero and a plus-size heroine who knows her own worth, this steamy fairy tale shines by serving realistic conflict alongside swoon-worthy romance.”
Publishers Weekly STARRED REVIEW

“A swoon-worthy, modern spin on Cinderella.”
Woman’s World


Praise for A Cowboy to Remember

“With the fun, sexy launch of the promising Cowboys of California series, Weatherspoon delivers a second chance at love story with depth and authenticity…A refreshing entry into the cowboy romance genre. This fabulous love story will delight readers.”
Publishers Weekly, STARRED REVIEW
 
“A gorgeous country setting, engaging multicultural characters, and sweet but passionate love scenes makes this a charming start to Weatherspoon’s Cowboys of California series, which will delight readers who enjoy contemporary Western romance.” 
Booklist, STARRED REVIEW 
 
“NYC glamour meets Southern California dude ranch in Rebekah Weatherspoon’s A Cowboy to Remember…a pleasurable ride to happily ever after.”
BookPage, STARRED REVIEW  
 
“Readers who enjoy the soap opera–like drama of an amnesia story will immediately be intrigued by Weatherspoon’s new series launch. The emotionally satisfying tale of forgiveness and reconciliation gives Evie’s story broad appeal.”
Library Journal
 
“The only thing I love more than a good Western/rancher/cowboy romance is one that features a second chance love story between a former rodeo champ and his childhood best friend. Who is now a celebrity chef. With amnesia. I can only imagine what the wildly and widely talented Rebekah Weatherspoon will do with all of these delightful pieces, and Weatherspoon’s particular brand of relatable love story—the type that features adults who behave like actual adults—may be exactly what we need in 2020.”
Bookriot, Most Anticipated Romances of 2020 
 
“An amnesia plot done right and a fantastic heroine mark a strong series debut.”
Kirkus Reviews 
 
“Rebekah Weatherspoon can seemingly write everything: Erotica, contemporary, paranormal—she does it all! Now she’s getting into the Western world with A Cowboy To Remember, the first in the Cowboys of California series.”
A Love So True, Most Anticipated Romances of 2020 
 
I love cowboys (and cowgirls) and Rebekah Weatherspoon’s writing so this is an automatic must read.”
