Product Description

Past promises will be tested as new ones are given...

When Clayton Proffitt, foreman of the Circle Z Ranch in Texas, discovers Vanessa Grant is the victim of her stepfather's advances, Clayton knows he must spirit her away to safety.

As they make their way west, a deep bond develops between Vanessa and Clayton- far more significant than mere friendship or his sense of duty. But their journey also brings unexpected confrontations with Vanessa's stepfather. As Clayton and Vanessa place their faith in God, will they find healing and hope for the future together? Written by NY T bestselling author Shelley Gray.

Publisher's Description

When Clayton Proffitt, foreman of the Circle Z Ranch in Texas, discovers Vanessa Grant is the victim of her stepfather’s advances, Clayton knows he must protect her honor and move her far away from the ranch—and from the man she fears. As they make their way West, an unexpected, deep bond develops between Vanessa and Clayton—far more powerful than a mere friendship or his sense of duty to her. But Vanessa’s stepfather won’t let her go so easily. As Clayton and Vanessa place their faith in God and their trust in each other, will they find healing and hope for the future together? "Shelley Gray is a wonderful storyteller, and A Texan’s Promise captured me from the first page.  This endearing love story is so rich with detail, I felt like I was traveling alongside Vanessa and Clayton throughout their incredible journey.  Clayton is the hero every woman dreams of, and I loved watching Vanessa grow from a scared girl into a strong woman.  This is a wonderful start to this new series.  Highly recommended." - Beth Wiseman Best-selling author of the Daughters of the Promise series "Shelley Gray’s fans will enjoy riding along with her characters down a new trail of romance in A Texan’s Promise, the first in The Heart of a Hero series. Readers will be rooting for Clayton and Vanessa to find their way to a true and lasting love." - Ann H. Gabhart, author of The Outsider, Summer of Joy, and Angel Sister

    This review was written for A Texan's Promise - eBook.
    Well, this is your typical "Christian" romance book/series. The characters are completely nonsensical and ridiculous, the story line is totally predictable, the writing is poor, scripture is seriously misinterpreted or taken out of context, characters live pretty much as they please yet are still "Christians," and the gospel is virtually absent from salvation.

    I really do not understand how or why these writers think this makes for a good book! Every single book in this genre is the same! There is hardly ever any deviation. I cannot believe how stupid the characters are. As soon as something happens, about a dozen inane questions are asked--questions that they should know the answers to. Ugh, it's just ridiculous. I'm going to try to read the next two books in the series to give a review. I'm hoping they are better than this first book.

    I do not recommend this book to anyone.

    What an attention-grabbing, heart-riveting tale of love, redemption and hope! Whew! I absolutely loved the first book in this new series from this new author to me. I was looking around for new books to read and was granted the opportunity from a publisher to read the second book in the series. When I found out there was a book one and three, I bought those books and have been planted in a comfy chair lost in a story that speaks volumes of sometimes waiting for others to find the Lord or hear from Him.

    Here are two characters with very different backgrounds. Clayton Proffitt is the foreman at the ranch owned by the father of Vanessa Grant. After her father's passing, within a short period of time, her mother rushes into a new marriage because of the overwhelming responsibilities of running such a large ranch. The decision to marry quickly turns from one of what appears as happiness to one of horror experienced by Mary, who is Vanessa's mother, Vanessa and her younger brother Miles. The villain, Price, is a cruel man who would go to the ends of the earth to take what was never rightfully his to own!

    Through the pages the audience will begin to see the past scars both Vanessa and Clayton have, as well as what each hopes the future holds. For the present time, the main concern is keeping Vanessa's whereabouts unknown to her step-father. Miles, Clayton and Vanessa are characters with different paths before them and each must learn to love and trust the Lord with the burdens their hearts carry.

    I cannot wait to begin book 2 in the series to see what happens with a couple of the minor characters stories that weren't the focus of book one. Readers who enjoy westerns stories that have the themes of friendships, dependency on the Lord, and belief in prayer will eat up this book! Such a great work of fiction did I enjoy and am thankful Shelley Gray took time to write and share. No one will be sorry to pick up a book that explores the human heart so deeply along with the facets of family and faith. The Heart of a Hero Series is one that will be on my shelf available to reread again sometime in the future, but also to share with a friend or two. Grab a copy, a comfy and quiet place then enjoy getting lost in the pages of A Texan's Promise!

    A Texan's Promise is a story filled with faith and hope in the face of difficult times. I really enjoyed the historical setting. It was written so vividly I felt completely transported back in time to the west. Clayton and Vanessa's relationship was developed really well throughout the course of the book and kept the reader engaged. A Texan's Promise was inspiring and I would recommend it to anyone who loves a good story!

    Clayton Proffitt is foreman of the Circle Z Ranch. When he discovers that Vanessa Grant, daughter of the ranch's owner, is the victim of her stepfather's advances he knows he must protect her honor and move her far away from the ranch. They find that an unexpected, deep bond develops between them as they make their way west. Clayton's biggest concern as they travel is that Vanessa's stepfather won't let her go so easily. They have to place their faith in both God and each other as they try to get away from his control.

    I loved this book. The characters were very well developed. From the very start of the story Vanessa's plight broke my heart. I was rooting for them to get away from her stepfather and any control he had over both of them. I loved the fact that Clayton was relying on God for His direction and protection throughout the book. He did everything he could to help point others to look to God also.

    I'm looking forward to reading everything else that I can find by this author. I highly recommend this book.
