Counting on a Cowboy


By Debra Clopton

After losing everything dear to her, Abby never wants to love again. But a certain cowboy spurs her to wonder if maybe love is worth the risk.

Running from a past that haunts her, Abby Knightly is drawn to the homey town of Wishing Springs, Texas, after her favorite advice columnist found love and a home there. Maybe this small town could offer hope and healing and a future for Abby too . . . if she’s brave enough to reach out and take it.

Bo Monahan isn’t interested in the new romantic destination his little town has become—or the women who might be looking at him like he’s their next Mr. Right. Between taking care of his Pops and his growing stirrup business, he isn’t looking for serious romantic commitments. But unexpectedly the young child he never knew about appears on his doorstep and Bo’s world is turned upside down.

This confirmed bachelor might not need a wife, but he sure needs a woman . . . and newcomer Abby Knightly is definitely a woman. When she comes to his rescue to help him navigate fatherhood, he slowly uncovers her own history. And suddenly Bo’s thinking maybe, just maybe, together they can help each other work through the problems of the past to create a future of their own.


Abby isn’t interested in a relationship. That’s okay with Bo. Neither is he. Abby relocated to Wishing Springs, Texas after following an advice columnist’s bet with a cowboy. Wishing Springs has become the place to be for women coming to catch a glimpse of a cowboy and maybe something more. Bo detests being on display.

Abby has an accident on her way into town and is rescued by Bo and his brother. Since his steer was the cause of the accident Bo just wants to get her settled at the Sweet Dreams Motel and get her car repaired. Then she’s out of his life.

Sounds good, doesn’t it? We know it’s not going to be that simple. After a little bundle of joy gets dropped off on Bo’s front porch he desperately needs Abby’s help. She helps, but runs any time something starts to look as if either of them have feelings for the other.

Abby knows she’s in love with the little man, but refuses to be in love with the big man. Can he persuade her to take a chance?

Thank you, Ms Clopton, for giving us this cowboy love story. I’m looking forward to Tru’s story.
