Winning the Widow’s Heart
To help his dying sister, Nate Cooper once broke the law—and he’s regretted it ever since. Now the ex-con turned saddler hopes for a new beginning in Turnabout, Texas. So when Nate saves a young widow’s daughter from imminent harm, he’s shocked to be called a hero.
Single mom Verity Leggett leads a safe life, avoiding danger and excitement at all costs. But her daughter’s rescuer Mr Cooper seems like a perfectly responsible—and handsome—man she can rely on. But when his secrets come to light, will Verity be able to get over his past and see Nate for the caring man he’s become?
Texas Grooms: In search of their brides…
This little Christian romance – don’t worry, it’s not preachy! – rolls along at a steady pace. It’s about redemption on the hero’s part, and about finding a second chance at love on the part of the widowed heroine’s.
Not as full of action and adventure as many books in the Western genre, this is about the characters, and the cast includes the heroine’s young daughter and our hero’s stray dog (love the name Beans!).
It’s hardly the most important thing in the book, but I was really happy to have a historical romance hero who was five foot nine. I get tired of anachronistic giants turning up in this genre all the time!
Though not my standout read of the year, fans of fairly gentle Christian fiction will probably enjoy this one.
