Western Short Stories
Ranch Romance

Romance has been written into western short stories ever since the advent of the dime novel and pulp westerns. But it was during the heyday of the "B" western, when Hollywood brought their version of Ranch Romances onto the big screen and eventually into the homes of millions of television viewers. It was a huge success for the western movie industry and a big boost to the authors who wrote western novels.

Romance stories have always been, and will remain a part of the traditional western genre. A western website that promotes western authors but doesn't include ranch romance stories would be incomplete.

This section of the Rope and Wire website is dedicated to the western authors who write Ranch Romance, and their stories. I hope you enjoy them. 

If you're interested in submitting a traditional ranch romance short story, please see our submission guidelines then contact Rope and Wire for more details.
