A few weeks ago, in a Sunday Edition, I mentioned that I’d read a debut contemporary romance novel and thoroughly enjoyed it. Today, I’d like to welcome that author, Debra Collins, to InspyRomance! I saw a link to A Marriage of Convenience on Facebook and I had to check it out. Cowboy? Modern marriage of convenience because of a will?
I read it that day and the next, stopping only to do the necessary things – like feed kids ;). So here’s a bit about Debra and about the novel.
And a giveaway!
Debra Lynn Collins was born and raised in Georgia, but moved to Alabama after marrying her real-life hero in 1981. She considers herself a Georgiabamian. Debra adores the south and couldn’t imagine herself living anywhere else.
Not only has God blessed her with a wonderful husband, but He’s also blessed her with four wonderful children, and as of right now seven precious grandchildren.
Through the years, Debra has tried her hand at many, many other crafts. She enjoys quilting, making candles, soap, and jewelry. She also scrapbooks, does woodworking, and cake decorating. Oh, and Debra LOVES TO COOK!

About the Book:
In Martin Chapman’s will, his final request is a peculiar one. Upon the day of their marriage, his caregiver Lily Meyers, and his grandson Bryce Fowler’s will become joint beneficiaries of his entire estate, which includes the Chapman’s Quarter Horse Ranch.
There’s only one problem, Lily and Bryce have never met. For the past three years, Lily and her five-year-old son Joey have lived on the ranch with Martin, never knowing they might inherit anything. Will she uproot her son from the only stable home he’s ever known or will she marry a man she doesn’t know to secure her son’s future?
Bryce’s decision isn’t an easy one either. Will he leave the fast pace and bright city lights of New York City to move to the sleepy little town in Trinity, Alabama, or with the cowboy life and Lily prove challenging enough to chase him back to his comfort zone?

Answer the following question to be entered into a drawing for a Kindle or Nook copy of A Marriage of Convenience:
My favorite place to read is usually in the corner of my couch. However, I read where ever I can.
Tiffany Reynolds says
She is a great woman of God and a great mother she loves her children and grandchildren we love her could not live without her.
I love to read anywhere. I usually read in bed or in the living room on the couch or in my chair.
Anywhere! Even as a child I’d find a quiet corner so I could keep my nose in my book.
My favorite place to read is on my bed before I go to sleep for the night.
I love to read at park, in car an any where in house.
Valerie Comer says
I usually read in bed. That’s about the only time I have, so I “go to bed” 30-60 minutes early every day!
