Abby Knightley is planning to start a new life in Wishing Springs. Just not like this.

Before she even makes it into town she almost runs down a steer and his cowboy in the middle of the road, gets her car stuck in a ditch, and faints after seeing just a drop of blood.

Bo Monahan is curious about Abby. First, he feels responsible for Abby’s accident, he was standing in the road in the middle of the night trying to commandeer the steer. Second, he’s curious, because what kind of an accident would make someone start fainting at the sight of blood? Third, he’s intrigued. Not only does she take his breath away but Abby is the one he wants when life throws him a curveball in the form of a surprise baby.

Hott Review:

How absolutely romantic!
What I liked about Counting on a Cowboy: Counting on a Cowboy is an excellent Christian Romance. I loved the primary characters plus, Ms Clopton pulled in previous characters and townspeople to give us a story that’s amazing and well-rounded.
Your heart can’t help but to get involved as Abby tries to move forward in life while still cutting herself off from her heart.
What I didn’t like about Counting on a Cowboy: While Ms. Clopton did a great job of keeping Counting on a Cowboy mostly a light read there are definitely some deep feelings here.

Counting on a Cowboy

Debra Clopton’s Bio:

Debra Clopton is an award winning, multi-published novelist. She sold her first book in 2003 and it was published in 2005 THE TROUBLE WITH LACY BROWN was the first book of the fun loving Mule Hollow series~the place readers tell her they wish was real..

Debra is proud of the success of her books and gives all the glory to God.

Debra believes her greatest award is first, God’s grace in her life and His gift of salvation. And second, her family and spending time with them. She counts every moment as a gift. Time is so precious…

Married for 22 blessed years to her high school sweetheart, Wayne Clopton, Debra was widowed in 2003. God’s arms never let go of her or her two sons, Chase and Kris, during those dark months after Wayne’s death. Her first book sold 7 months after Wayne’s death and her mission became showing the love she’d known in her life, through her characters and shining a light into reader’s darkest hours with love and laughter of her books.

Happily, in 2008, God led a couple of friends to play matchmaker and talk her into a blind date with Chuck Parks—who they also talked into a blind date…sounds like a page out of one of her Mule Hollow books! Instantly hitting it off, Debra and Chuck were married in 2010 and are so thankful that God led them to each other. Debra now has more love to share in her books!

Her sons, her lovely daughter-in-law and beautiful granddaughter have recently moved across country—it’s been a bit of a shock for her to adjust to not having them close. She feels blessed to have a career that enables her to visit them often and her motto is —have computer, will travel!

Along with her writing Debra helps her husband teach the youth at the Cowboy Church of Leon County. When she isn’t writing Debra loves to read, travel and spend time with her family.
