Rangeland Romances #15 Short Story
Cupid Rules This Roost by Art Lawson
Alice came to Robber’s Roost to write a story – and found herself the kiss-besieged heroine of a big bad wolf…and a guitar-strummin’ ghost. She got first-hand savvy on romantic plots – when a phantom desperado haunted her house…and her heart.
One of the most popular settings for romance stories was the old west, where men were men and women were women. As many a swooning damsel could attest, “There’s something about a cowboy.”
The western romance became one of the most popular types of magazines sold during the early and mid-twentieth century.
By today’s standards, these stories may be considered sweet and wholesome, but there’s still a thrill to them, the excitement of action and love waiting along the next trail. A beautiful woman thrown into the arms of a handsome cowboy. A desert sunset as two lovers’ lips meet. The wide-open spaces where two lonely hearts find unexpected romance. Stories of untamed country and love make western romances extremely popular.
This new series of Rangeland Romances brings back the best of those western romance stories. A short story – a quick listen – and romance blooms among the tumbleweeds yet again. Vintage Rangeland Romances, harkening back to a simpler day where love could be found on a dusty trail, are reissued for today’s listeners.
