If you've been following my blog for a while, you'll know this ain't Debra Clopton's first rodeo here....so to speak. I enjoy reading her clean romances that are spiced with action of the best kind. At least, this is my own opinion on the matter. It doesn't help that her settings take me back home to Texas where I'm fairly certain I left a good chunk of my heart when we moved away. Check out my review of her book...
Book Review: "Cooper: Charmed by the Cowboy" (Cowboys of Ransom Creek #3)
Cooper by Debra Clopton
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I was so happy when this book showed up in my Bookbub email. Debra Clopton is fast becoming a new and improved Barbara Cartland for me. (My mother collected those romances when I was a kid and I started my own journey into the romance novel realm through them.)
Cooper (Cowboys of Ranson Creek #3) is a book I've been wanting to read for a while now. Debra Clopton didn't disappoint. This book is a lovely, well done romance.
I love her characters. Strong, gentle, and reliable men who have troubles but don't give up seal the deal for me. Every time. Her heroines are equally strong, if not always in body, definitely in mind. They're believable characters and I really get invested in their stories. This book was no different than the others in that respect.
The plot of 'Cooper' really kept me going, too. I never really knew what was going to happen next. The only problem area to me was that the climax seemed like it passed too quickly. The action there was good, but it just seemed to move too fast.
This book's a keeper and I'm so glad I found it! (I sometimes miss out on my Bookbub offering because I forget to check my email.) I'd recommend it to anyone who enjoys sweet romance, contemporary romance, or cowboy romance.

I adore a good cowboy romance with strong characters and a not-so-heavy plot. It's the perfect way to wind down at the end of a busy or chaotic day. (For me, those two terms don't necessarily go hand in hand.) If you enjoy books like this, please do give this one a try. Or if you've read it, I'd love to hear what you think!

#WIPLinebyLine Writing Challenge Days 19 - 25
I've been dragging along so much on the edit of Over Land & Under Stone. One reason for this was not having a clear picture of where my story needed to go. I also worry about how the stories I'm writing now are going to connect and what main antagonist the hero(es) will be up against in the end.
Writing and editing OLUS has given me so much insight into a different clan and how they think and function. Editing it has shown me places I can use to further the story itself and the series as a whole. I have learned so much on this part of my journey and I learn more every day.
I hope no one will be too upset if this book takes longer than expected to publish. It's been a bear of a task and I'm still struggling through it. But I haven't given up. I can't wait to start on book three but I can't do much with it until I'm certain about all the events in book two. It's a great incentive to keep on keeping on.
