Jenna Callahan has a young son and rewarding work on her father's ranch. But she never expected to see Nate Langley back in town-the first guy she noticed, the one her father sent away all those years ago. And she never thought the attraction they felt would be as strong as ever.
Jenna's cowboy has some healing of his own to do, though, after two tours of duty in the armed forces. With the help of good friends, strong faith, and a loving family, he hopes to put the horrors of the past behind him and become the man Jenna deserves.
With an emphasis on simple acts of love, Jenna's Cowboy gives romance readers what they want most, a love story with a Texas touch.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Sharon grew up on Thompson's Ranch in the Rolling Plains of West Texas, near Colorado City. Her father was ranch foreman, and her parents lived there for over fifty years. The six thousand acre ranch provided pasture for Hereford cattle and an occasional Texas Longhorn, as well as fields of grain and grass to feed the stock and the primary crop, cotton. Love and marriage took Sharon across the country to state of Washington, but Texas is still dear to her heart.
Her books are honest down home love stories with laughter, conflict and sometimes tragedy that carries the reader along. The power of God working in the lives of the main characters is always evident as is their relationship to Him.
As she did in Love Song, Antiques and Texas Tender, she again brings you the wonderful people, small towns and West Texas region she loves in Jenna's Cowboy, Emily's Chance and a to be named third book in the Callahans of Texas series.
For Sharon, writing romance novels is a ministry. God has given her the talent to write, and she uses it to serve Him. She depends on Him to give her stories that will inspire, heal, entertain and bring her readers closer to Jesus.

This was my first book by Sharon and I have to say that I was quite impressed. I have held back from diving into the western romance, for fear of not being able to relate, I guess. I am a born and raised city girl and though I did spend some time during my childhood on my uncle's ranch deep in the hills of Colorado, I didn't think that I would be interested in western romance. Well, Sharon has got me hooked!
Jenna's Cowboy not only takes you deep in the heart of Texas, but into a family that loves the Lord. The closeness of the families in this small tight-knit community shines through like rays of sun, its beautiful!
Riding along with the Callahans through their acres of land, being taken by nightmare into the deserts of Iraq and Afghanistan and watching true love have a chance to re-blossom will keep you turning pages. eaach chapter is something new and exciting and the many twists and turns in the story line had me finishing Jenna's Cowboy in a short two days. (That PLUS the fact that I sprained my ankle and by order of my awesome hubby have been off my wounded foot.)
Jenna's Cowboy is the fist in The Callahans of texas series by Sharon, with Emily's Chance (book 2) scheduled to release in September 2010. It's marked on my calendar, this is a series that I will complete!
