Shelley Gray

Dear Reader,

I think I love to write so much because I love to read. And I've always enjoyed writing about people I'd want to know—like Clayton Proffitt.

Clayton, the hero of A TEXAN'S PROMISE, is such an honorable man. To me, he's just about perfect! He's handsome, kind, tough, and full of integrity. I hope you'll like his story as much as I do. And, if you get a moment, please tell me what you thought about any of the characters. I'd love to hear from you!


"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
