about Under Texas Blue Skies
J.D. Sterling, the
sexy star of country music, had come back home to McKenna Springs, Texas. Years
before, he had left to chase his dream and had succeeded. His life was almost
perfect. Almost. He was still missing the part of his heart he had left
behind…Mandy Lawson.

Amanda Lawson had changed from the young, innocent Mandy…the teenager madly in
love with the bad boy from the wrong side of the tracks. Heartbreak and tragedy
would do that to a person. She was determined to keep her well-ordered,
work-driven life on the successful path she had fought to achieve on her own.
No singing cowboy with a devil’s smile in his green eyes and a sexy body in
tight jeans was going to be allowed close enough to break her heart again.

Excerpt from Under Texas Blue Skies:
have other business in town also,” Amanda spoke up. “I don’t know why I was
called out here but…”
I want you.” Those jade green eyes pinned her to her spot. J.D.’s choice of
words knocked the air out of Amanda’s lungs for a moment. Did he think that he
could turn that look on her, along with that famous half-grin that sent deep
grooves down his cheeks and made fingers itch to touch them and females swoon
at his feet? He was still the lying, no good cowboy who had played her for a
fool and then left her behind when the bright lights beckoned. He wanted her?
Well, he’d had her once, but never again.
blue eyes pinned him. “People don’t always get what they want, J.D. But
sometimes they do get what they deserve.”
When Mandy stood looking at him with
those blue eyes, where once there had been the warmth of love glowing in them
for him, there was now a cool curtain, devoid of anything but a banked anger
mixed with a dash of indifference. For some reason, he felt he had been judged
and found lacking in her estimation. He definitely had to regroup. There was
another battle ahead, and he had fought many in his lifetime and won each of
them. This would be the most important one. Losing was not an option.

Author bio
and links:

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 owning a wedding planning
business (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
, 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
The Seymour
Agency represents Debra and she is soon to have two contemporary romances
published by Spencer Hill/Tulip Romance and Astraea Press. Debra invites you to
