KISSED BY A COWBOY - Debra Clopton - One Free Book

BIO: Debra Clopton is a multi-award winning novelist and has written more than 22 novels. Along with writing, Debra helps her husband teach the youth at their local Cowboy Church. Debra's goal is to shine a light toward God while she entertains readers with her words.

Dear Readers, Debra is a Texas author. Every time I'm around her, I love her more. And her books are wonderful. Cowboys, Texas, and romance. What’s not to love? I’ve read most of her books, and when they arrive, I read them right away. Kissed By a Cowboy is my favorite so far, but then I say that with each new book she writes. You won’t want to miss this one.

Welcome back, Debra. What are some of the spiritual themes you like to write about?
I love to write about forgiveness, and redemption - being freed from one’s past. Overcoming pain of one’s past and looking to the future and love conquers all.

What other books of yours are coming out soon?
I’m very excited that DALTON the 5th book in my New Horizon Ranch series is coming out. Readers have been waiting on this story and I’m so glad to have it ready for them now. This series is shorter than my Four of Hearts Ranch romances but just as romantic and heart-warming. DALTON is a great story about a cowboy who keeps his past closed up inside but then one stormy night he rescues a very pregnant Rae Anne Tyson from floodwaters and suddenly Dalton’s life is turned upside down and no matter what he believes he does or doesn’t deserve—he can’t walk away from helping Rae Anne.

I’m working on a new series now that I’m excited about and there will be news next month about it. I’d love for readers to join my newsletter at
I’d love to feature Dalton on the blog. Email me. How can you encourage authors who have been receiving only rejections from publishers?
Persevere while at the same time continue to write. Write every day.

Tell us about the featured book.
Cassidy was looking for a home and a place to belong . . . not for a cowboy to steal her heart.
Having lived through her parents’ endless string of “matrimonial bliss gone wrong,” Cassidy Starr knows when the odds are not in her favor. Divorced and humiliated, her faith on rocky ground, Cassidy is through with love. She’s been bucked off that horse far too many times. Instead, she returns to Wishing Springs, Texas, and the rundown farm she’s inherited from her great aunt Roxie. She’ll reopen the strawberry farm and a bed and breakfast and follow in her aunt’s footsteps, remaining forever-independent, happy . . . and single.

Rancher Jarrod Monahan’s hands are full running the ranch, looking after his ailing grandfather, and chasing down a group of rustlers on the loose. He’s pushed his longing for a family to the bottom of his list of priorities. Besides, he was in love once but ran scared and lost his shot at happiness. But suddenly, the biggest regret of his life has moved in next door with a wounded heart, determined to become a spinster . . . and that’s a challenge that Jarrod can’t pass up.

Jarrod sets his mind to breaking down the walls around Cassidy’s stubborn heart. How can he show her that a cowboy’s kiss lasts forever? For the good folks of Wishing Springs, falling in love has never been so much fun to witness.

Please give us the first page of the book for my readers.
Strawberry Hill.

Cassidy Starr’s headlights shined on the faded words of the wooden sign, which looked nearly ready to collapse.  She knew exactly how it felt. Taking a deep breath, she pushed her kinky mass of red hair behind her ears, then took hold of the steering wheel of her truck and drove up the dark, tree-lined lane. Up the hill, the two-story, yellow Victorian appeared in her headlight beams, and a wave of nostalgia and relief washed over Cassidy. She was home.

Humiliated, but home.

Tears dampened her eyelashes and she blinked them away. “I will not get emotional. I will not get emotional,” she chanted to the silence around her.

She was done with tears.

Seriously done.

So over them.

These days the only thing tears did was make her mad when they dared to threaten.

Hi from Karen in Oklahoma!
That last part "I will not get emotional." I can so relate but I usual do end up emotional. I wonder how someone can learn to control their tears?
