Forthcoming Release September 2019

My One True Love is a stand-alone novel featuring Margaret from books I and II of Deborah Small’s Dear One series…

1915…

Twice widowed…

Margaret Sweeney has no intention of marrying again. Her heart simply cannot withstand another loss. Besides, it’s a rare man that knowingly weds a barren woman, and she buried him. To honour his memory, she decides to dedicate herself to Sugar Hill, the tobacco plantation he left her. But when she meets overseer, Joe Banner, and his delightful daughter Maisie, all her plans to refrain from ever loving someone again, go awry…

Once bitten…

Joe learned young the danger of romantic love with a woman, and vowed to never make that mistake again. For a decade he’s been true to his word. And then the new owner of Sugar Hill sweeps into his and Maisie’s carefully ordered lives and upends everything, including his resolve to remain aloof…

Three lives forever changed…

Painful as it is to lose in love, it’s nothing compared to losing a child. And when Joe’s past and Margaret’s present conspire to threaten Maisie’s future, the couple will do whatever it takes to save her, even if it means giving up every precious last piece of their damaged hearts…

Praise for My Own:

Susie Henkel rated it:   it was amazing

Wow! I enjoyed the first book in this series (My Dear One) so much! It made me wanting more, and My Own did not disappoint!! It was exciting, and suspenseful, but at the same time a beautiful love story! My favorite books are Historical Romance, and Deborah Small did an amazing job of combining the two. I can’t wait to see what comes next! – Goodreads

About Deb

I was fortunate to be raised on a hobby farm where my passion for reading, and all things furred and feathered, was indulged. When I wasn’t adopting stray cats and dogs—and the occasional flock of geese—I was riding one of my horses, or locked in my room with the latest Nancy Drew or Black Stallion adventure. …

Fun Friday – Expect the Unexpected

On Easter Sunday my son-in-law’s brother suffered a level-5 brain aneurysm. Few people survive a level-5 aneurysm. He did, and I credit his survival to three things: the skill and dedication of the first-responders, and then the neurosurgeons, nurses, and other medical personnel who were critical to his emergent, urgent, and ongoing care; the love …
