Debra is the author of the acclaimed Mule Hollow Matchmaker Series, the place readers tell her they wish was real. Her goal is to shine a light toward God while she entertains readers with her words.
Cowgirl Jolene Bartee has just taken a job at the New Horizon Ranch helping break wild horses and is looking for a fresh start. Almost immediately she’s pulled over by the law…a very hot and hunky sheriff who has her hackles up and her heart thumping. But if there is one thing she knows, it’s that Bartee’s and the law don’t mix.
Sheriff Deputy Austin Drake is working overtime helping support his recently widowed sister and niece. Tired and lonesome he’s decided he’s losing his mind if a sassy mouthed, rumpled cowgirl with a chip on her shoulder can get his blood rushing and his heart pumping.
But, chemistry can’t be denied and everyone around them is noticing, including the town matchmakers. Like fire and ice these two ignite as their hearts melt and love blooms in the midst of obstacles. Let down by too many men in her past can Jolene trust her heart to Austin?
Or is it time to move on…
Not if Austin can help it. He’s out to win Jolene’s heart and prove he’s not like the others and he’s the man to make her dreams come true.
