Search and rescue dog handler Shelby Davis is living the dream. Not only does she train search and rescue dogs, but she’s a bestselling suspense author who has waterfront property in the beautiful mountain town of Grand Lake, Colorado. All is well until she receives a call to bring her dog Max and her snowmobile to help rescue a man who is lost in a blizzard up on Gravel Mountain. That man is the one person she never wants to see again—Ryker Anderson—the man who broke her heart the day he called three months before their wedding to say goodbye with no explanation as to why.

After being gone for eighteen months, Ryker Anderson is back in Grand Lake where he hopes to win back the woman he loves. He only hopes Shelby understands why he left. Will he be able to convince Shelby that she can trust him with her heart again even though he broke it before?

The setting in this story is near and dear to my heart. Having lived in Grand County for over 25 years, we grew to love the folks there. Grand Lake is part of that county, and where we used to go to church even though it was almost 50 miles from us. But, it's like my mom always said, "There's no road too far where love takes you." She was right.

Hope you enjoy this story about forgiveness, trust, and loving someone even when they don't deserve it.

God bless you all.

Until next time...

A side note: The unique log cabin I wrote about in my story, A Grand County Christmas, is based on an actual home in Grand County as was the delivery of milk and cheese. Grand County Colorado is filled with wonderful history, and I had the privilege of living on ranches in the beautiful Colorado Rocky Mountains for over twenty five years. There are many remains of pioneer log cabins dotted throughout the trees and all around up there. I often wondered what it would be like if those walls could talk. What stories they would tell? Would they be one of hardships? Or of joy and happier times? Or what? We, as romance authors, so often romanticize the old west, when indeed it was filled with hard work and many struggles. Yes, there was romance back then, as well, for I've heard tales from some of the old pioneers themselves. And they were very romantic. Sigh. *smiling* Therefore, I hope you enjoy not only my story but those of the other talented authors of, A LOG CABIN CHRISTMAS, as we take you on a journey of what it was like to live and to build log cabins back in the days long since past. Happy reading! From a reviewer about my story: “A GRAND COUNTY CHRISTMAS - Debra Ullrick
Colorado. Irish lass meets Austrian widower in rocky Mountain snow and it takes only 5 pages to get hormones as hot as summer. But the bliss turns to Christmas Eve mystery--secrets--& fraud. Will Christmas be "gut"? Unique log house used here.”

This is my mom and dad. This year has been, and is, super hard for me. I miss my mom, who passed away in October of 2011, terribly and my dad too. (He passed away on November 9, 1979.) My dad is on the right. As a result of the war, my dad and the other soldiers in WW11 and every other war fought and still being fought paid, and are paying, a high price for our freedom. Whenever my dad was asleep, each time we woke Pops up, we had to stand way back from him becasue he always came up swinging his fisted hands. Many nights he would jump on top of my mom and yell, "Suicide bombers! Man the hatches!" He drank heavily to forget the horrors he lived in the war. Like buddies blown up in front of him, living in constant fear for the lives of those they loved and for their own life, and eating bread infested with maggots, killing other human beings while looking them in the face, just to name a few. At first Pops said they used to remove the maggots, then after awhile they just ate them because there were too many and they were hungry. He said when you're hungry, you'll eat anything. Thank God I've never known that kind of hunger. Please take a moment to remember all of those who in the past and in the present, who have and who are, fighting to keep the freedom we now enjoy. And be careful to not let anyone, political or otherwise, rob you of that freedom that cost so many wonderful men and women their lives and some, even their very sanity, their limbs and health, and their family life etc. GOD BLESS THE USA AND ALL THOSE WHO HAVE FOUGHT AND ARE FIGHTING FOR OUR FREEDOM!!!

Exciting news! ~ Déjà vu Bride Ebook on sale now only 99 cents!!!

Déjà vu Bride  Ebook on sale now only 99 cents!!!

Back cover blurb:

Furious with God, Olivia Roseman vows to never trust Him again. Why should she? Once again her prayers have gone unanswered, and once again another loved one has been ripped from her. With no job and only a few dollars, Olivia makes a choice to start over again. Without God and without love. However, her handsome new boss isn't going to make forgetting God or keeping her vow to never love again very easy. Erik Cole questions the sanity of his moving from Swamper City, Alabama to Charity, West Virginia. That is, until he hires airbrush designer Olivia Roseman to paint his monster truck. When he senses that she’s a gal who is down on her luck, he vows to do whatever he can to help her. Only problem is, the little beauty creates more challenges than one. As his feelings toward her deepen, all Erik can do is hope and pray that one day Olivia will open up her heart to Christ—and to him.



5.0 out of 5 stars
"Ever had a day that nothing has gone right? Well, Olivia has had that kind of life. Bounced around, abused, and abandoned, life has now taken a very nasty turn again.

Knowing she has to get away or drown in the misery, she risks it all to become a designer for Eric's monster trucks. But when Eric develops feelings for his beautiful new employee, can Olivia let go of the past, or will this be deja vu all over again?

I loved this story! My only advice is to get out the Kleenex when Olivia finally comes clean about how rough life has been because when she starts to forgive, your tears won't stop for a long, long time!

Powerful and highly recommended!"
5.0 out of 5 stars GET REVVED ... FOR FAST-PACED ROMANCE!, October 8, 2009
This review is from: Deja Vu Bride (Paperback)
If you loved Deb Ullrick's wonderfully unique debut novel, The Bride Wore Coveralls--and I did--you're gonna love switching gears from mud bog racing to monster trucks in this fun and unique love story that cranks up the RPMs on romance in the fast lane. Like the beautiful body of a sleek and stylish racecar, there is so much more that makes this story haul and hum under the hood. Debra Ullrick has a real knack for unique storylines, likeable characters, easy dialogue and romance that truly revs, but even more so is the amazing spiritual message woven throughout, creating the perfect finish to a fun and fast-paced read.
Hop on over to Amazon and get your copy!

The Unintended Groom - Sneak Cover Preview!

Coming June 2013

A Perfect Partnership 

When Abby Bowen's dream of love is dashed, she pursues a new dream; opening a dinner theater in Hot Mineral Springs, Colorado. There's just one hitch; she needs a male business partner. The handsome father of twins who answers Abby's ad is perfect...perhaps too perfect. Working with someone like Harrison Kingsley—without losing her heart—will be harder than Abby anticipated.

It's a good thing Harrison's arrangement with Abby is strictly business. Because with her kind soul, smiling blue eyes and gentle way with his boys, he could easily fall for her. But the longer he works with Abby, the more Harrison realizes that the Lord might have an entirely different partnership planned for them.

Thanks for stopping by.

Until next time...
