Dear Librarians,

I have a secret. I wrote A TEXAN'S PROMISE for myself. When I started the book, I was under deadline and feeling stressed. Every day I would sit at my computer and worry. I knew I had to do something so I decided to write a western.

I wrote most of A TEXAN'S PROMISE in my spare time. I made up Clayton Proffitt and gave him a heroine who I hoped was worthy. Then I gave them a great adventure, and threw in a bad guy just to keep things interesting.

I sincerely hope you will enjoy this novel, the book of my heart.


"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

"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." - Beth Wiseman, Best-selling author of the Daughters of the Promise series
