From America's bestselling cowboy poet and NPR commentator Baxter Black comes the sequel toHey, Cowboy, Wanna Get Lucky? Two years after he won the average at the Las Vegas National Finals Rodeo by riding Kamikaze, the world's most unridable bull, Lick is down on his luck, working on a ranch in the remote Nevada desert with Al Bean, an ornery old cowboy. When Teddie Arizona, woman of mystery, crawls out of the wreckage of her plane and into their lives with a $5,000,000 secret, things start to get interesting. When T. A. 's "husband," F. Rank Pantaker, dispatches his henchmen to retrieve the money--and the girl--Lick and Al find themselves trying to outrun the bad guys and protect a damsel in distress. Is T. A. out to cheat her cheatin' husband, or is she really just trying to stop an illegal scheme cooked up by F. Rank and the infamous Ponce de Crayon, Vegas's most glamorous tiger tamer? Is she playing Lick--or is it love? Will Al Bean's cockeyed plan, an able assist from Cody, Lick's cowboy sidekick, a brigade of old-time rodeo reunioneers, and twenty miles of duct tape be enough to stop F. Rank's nefarious schemes, reform a career party girl, and change the hearts and minds of ten of the world's most thrill-seeking billionaires? Can Cody keep Lick from climbing onto raging bull Kamikaze's back one more time? Can true love triumph over shoot-outs at the not-so-okay corral and close encounters with white tigers? Hey, this is Baxter Black--what do you think? With its colorful cast of characters, rip-roaring humor, and inventive language, this caper will have you riding high long after it gallops to a thunderously satisfying conclusion.
