Meet Gracelyn Clark from Of the Cowboy’s Own Accord. At thirty-one years of age, she is a former Army Brat. After working as a sommelier, and going through extensive training, Gracelyn acquired the title of Guild Wine Master. (I might have trained right along with Gracelyn via research!)

Double Dutch Ranch Series, Mary J McCoy-Dressel, Western Romance


  • Gracelyn prefers to be called Grace…

She indicated no to another glass of wine but drew her attention back to him. “Call me Grace. Everyone does.”

He hesitated a few seconds, thinking about her full name. The sound of it reminded him of innocence, even though her persona kind of spoke the opposite. “Do you have anything against Gracelyn? It’s nice.”

She fingered a silver chain necklace. “No, not really. Most don’t use my full name.”

With a tilt to his head, he gave a cocky grin. “Maybe I’m not like most.”

Oh, that cocky cowboy/ soldier.

I enjoyed creating Gracelyn Clark, but I have had a blast creating and getting to know all of my heroines.

Amazon #1 Best Seller

Since this is the last of my published heroines to date, my next heroine really isn’t a heroine of her own book, but she is the heroine of the Double Dutch Ranch. She has a big role in all the books. Her name is Judy Carlson…our ranch mom.

 I appreciate you taking the time to check out my post. Thanks so much for reading.

Have a fab week!
