As Christmas approaches, widowed Reverend Caleb Brennan needs a wife, or his vengeful father-in-law will take his young daughters. When his mail-order bride jilts him, Caleb grows desperate. During a storm, he finds an unconscious boy outside his home with signs of foul play. Despite his previous misfortune, obligation compels Caleb to lug the stranger inside. But as he provides first aid, he discovers more than he expected.
Bounty hunter Grace Blackwell refuses to owe a debt to any man, especially one as charming as Reverend Brennan. To repay him for saving her life, Grace agrees to pose as his mail-order bride. If their ploy is discovered, Caleb could lose his daughters. But in their pretense, the reverend and the bounty hunter might just both lose their hearts.
If you are looking for a sweet Christmas western novella, then look no further! Just released this month, A Match of Sorts is a page-turning delight.
Caleb Brennan is a hero you won’t soon forget! A widower with two adorable daughters that will steal your heart. He is a devoted and tender father, a caring brother and a handsome rescuer.
Grace Blackwell is tough as nails. She has to be, she’s been on her own since she was 16. Suddenly she finds herself needing someone, and that revelation is scary.
Will these two unlikely characters be able to allow themselves to trust each other, or will the walls they’ve built keep them apart?
Pour yourself a cup of hot cocoa, and settle in for a delightful, page-turning story that is sure to not only entertain you but to also remind you of the deep love of our Savior, who gave up everything for us.
