Featuring DEBRA HOLT

Debra Holt, author of Mercy’s Rescue, is a Texas girl through and through. If you check out her personal and professional Facebook pages on any given day, in fact, you’re almost sure to spot a beautiful image boasting about her home state. More often than not, there will be bluebonnets somewhere in the picture too, which is why we asked the cover designer of Mercy’s Rescue to work them into the cover somehow. Debbie’s Texas roots make her a natural to write about those cowboys adored by fans of romance! Mercy’s Rescue is no exception either. Josh Wellman is the romantic hero we love to swoon over. He’s tall and chisled, sure; but he’s also humble, strong, and kind. He’s just the type of guy women like us (and Mercy Smith) need to ground us and push us to be the best women we can be. Mercy’s pretty spectacular on her own, too. Professionally, she leads a medical evac team in the town where Josh is the sheriff. Her faith has taken some hits in recent years though, and Josh’s influence is sorely needed in her more vulnerable personal life. Their romance unfolds believably with elements of fun as well as a few heart-wrenching twists. For a sneak peek of the video trailer, click the icon below.   Mercy’s Rescue is available for pre-order right now in ebook and print form, and the official launch date arrives in just a few days. FOR A LIMITED TIME, YOU CAN “GRAB” A COPY OF MERCY’S RESCUE at BookGrabbr. And to connect with author Debra Holt, you can visit her website, LIKE... read more
