Summary: The Morgan Traveling Exhibition & Gun Competition is recognized throughout the West as the finest showcase of shooters, ropers, and riders this side of the Mississippi River. Jensen, known better as The Texas Rose, joined J.D. Morgan’s troupe after the promoter rescued him from a prostitution camp when he was barely a teenager. Life on the road gives Jensen the family he’s always wanted, freedom to express his desires, and plenty of lovers, but Jensen longs for a partner who sees him as more than just a pretty face in a fancy costume. When he walks into a saloon the night before a competition and finds a tall, slim gunslinger standing alone at the bar, Jensen senses that passion could burn bright between them. However, Jensen knows that the only thing more dangerous than a gunslinger's aim would be falling in love with one. Though they both make their home on the road, Jensen's job is to celebrate life. Jared's job is to end it.

notes. I wasn’t going to participate in BB this year, but around March I remembered that I had started a short story which I really enjoyed. It was a PWP featuring Jensen wearing a corset, and Jared the gunslinger. It was based on an episode of one of my favorite older television series, The Magnificent Seven. I decided that it would be fun (*eyeroll*) to expand the story and give it a little more background, a little more porn, and a nice, happy ending. Three months later I have a full Harlequin Western, and I couldn’t be happier.

This is by no means in keeping with history. It is an idealized Old West where cross-dressing wasn’t common, but neither it nor homosexuality was frowned upon. It is also a Harlequin story and proud of it ♥

thanks. I have to thank [ profile] cackling_madly for choosing my story right away and being so excited to get started. I knew that the prompt might not appeal to everyone, but I was clearly chosen by the PERFECT artist. We were totally meant to be. She wanted to draw the exact same scenes I envisioned, and she’s done some fantastic work! Her Jensen is GORGEOUS, as he should be, and Danneel and Jared popped right out of my head and into her drawings. She worked her tail off, so PLEASE PLEASE leave her some love!

I am MASSIVELY grateful to [ profile] one_2_3_4 and [ profile] dugindeep for helping me whip this thing into shape! [ profile] one_2_3_4 had the first read through, and without her suggestions this would have ended up as a shell of a story – good, but missing all the best parts. She’s also the one who came up with the ending, although I wish she’d told me sooner :P [ profile] dugindeep polished up the beta in record time and saved me from posting incomplete paragraphs. She was always there with cheerleading duties towards the end! Thank you, and I love you both ♥ ♥ ♥

And of course, thank you to my own posse who never let me give up on this story 

As always, thanks to the [ profile] wendy for putting this together! Big Bang is a drug, and you’re my supplier.
