ABOUT HIS COUNTRY BRIDE:His Country Bride cover 19mar2016_blurbs

Sheriff’s Department! Raise your hands above your head and don’t move.

She’s a runaway bride who left her two-timing fiance at the altar. He’s a county sheriff determined to keep the peace in his country and leave city girls alone after his own fiance left him for the bright lights of the city. Neither of them planned on running straight into each other…over a burning wedding dress.

Ellie and Lucas planned on never trusting their hearts to love again. When danger follows her from the city, the sheriff must do his duty to protect her. However, it isn’t long before he discovers the real danger may be to his heart. Ellie just might teach him that even a city girl can be a country girl at heart.

ABOUT DEBRA HOLT:Debra Holt

Born and raised in the Lone Star state of Texas, Debra grew up among horses, cowboys, wide open spaces, and real Texas Rangers. Pride in her state and ancestry knows no bounds and it is these heroes and heroines she loves to write about the most. She also draws upon a variety of life experiences including working with abused children, caring for baby animals at a major zoo, and planning high-end weddings (ah, romance!).
Debra’s real pride and joys, however, are her son, an aspiring film actor, and a daughter with aspirations to join the Federal Bureau of Investigation. (more story ideas!) When she isn’t busy writing about tall Texans and feisty heroines, she can be found cheering on her Texas Tech Red Raiders, or heading off on another cruise adventure. She read her first romance…Janet Dailey’s Fiesta San Antonio, over thirty years ago and became hooked on the genre. Writing contemporary western romances, is both her passion and dream come true, and she hopes her books will bring smiles…and sighs… to all who believe in happily-ever-after’s.

Novel Secrets:

His Country Bride was my first contemporary romance and it was fun to write. It also has so many elements in it of my hometown area, my love of all things country, and the dog in the book has special meaning for me, too. The idea for HCB came about as I was driving along a beautiful road next to a river in the Texas hill country. On one side was the river and the other was a ditch filled with spring wildflowers…notably my favorite Bluebonnets, some pink primroses, and Indian Paintbrush. Then there was an old barb-wired fence separating the ditch from a beautiful pasture where peach trees were just filling out.

My brain began to go into its own mysterious mode (for want of better description) and in my mind I did a what-if game…what if a hero…say a county sheriff… was driving along this road and on that old barbed-wire fence post was something that caught his eye? And that something was a bridal veil? That would certainly catch his attention. So he stops, gathers up the veil, his gaze seeking the errant bride and he spies some smoke across the pasture. Naturally, he must investigate. That was the original beginning to His Country Bride…as simple as that. Of course, as editors do, changes are made and the beginning changed a bit but I still got that veil in there in another scene!

People always ask, “where do your story ideas come from?” Well, they come in a blink of an eye…no warning, at any time and any place. It could start with a bit of conversation overheard in a café, or catching a quick glimpse of a billboard next to a highway, or in the steady gaze of a real Texas Ranger. (I write many books with Texas lawmen as the heroes) I often have no warning before they strike. That is why my initial notes or chapters have been scribbled in longhand on things such as paper napkins, café menus, or pieces of cardboard… whatever I could reach the fastest to get the words recorded that pour from my brain like turning on a water tap. Friends who are with me at these times, have gotten used to this. One telling the waitress who was afraid I was having some sort of fit at the table… “don’t worry…she’s just a genius at work.” LOL  I am no genius…just a writer of romance. I hope you enjoy reading about the runaway bride and the country sheriff who captures her heart.
