Everyone talks about love. They want to be in love, have been in love, struggles with love or have sworn off love altogether. Most of us know the only true and perfect love is the love we receive from God and we can never hope to match his perfect, unconditional love, because we’re mere mortals. But it’s “shore nuf” worth trying, as Wes Owen might say in A Love of Her Own, the final book of my Heart of the West series.
When Wes meets the lovely, sophisticated, but spoiled and self-centered April McBride, he is smitten, but he knows they are from different worlds. That doesn’t stop him from trying to get her attention. I wrote this book with one thing on my mind—to convey how love, based on grace, plays no favorites. In truth, the more flawed a person is, the greater that person’s need and potential for love. April has a beautiful exterior, but on in the inside has a flawed inner character. Wes Owen carries his own set of flaws. Although April has relied on her father’s money, her beauty and intelligence, she has never tapped into the true source of love and grace. Here’s the back copy of the book. I hope my readers will enjoy the fast-paced, exciting ride on a trail of love with April McBride. Leave a comment on the blog and we’ll draw a name for a free copy this week to be mailed when it becomes available at the end of May.
In A Love of Her Own, April has everything her heart desires—except the one thing money can’t buy—true love. She’s not interested in love or finding a man. Still cautious after a broken engagement, April McBride fully intends to guard her heart when she travels to
, to attend her brother’s wedding. One look around the small mining town convinces April that doing so won’t be difficult—just a bunch of dusty shops, bad service, and ill-bred cowboys. But a run-in with horse trainer Wes Owen opens up vast possibilities for frustration, embarrassment, friendship, and . . . love? Lewistown, Montana
Can April and Wes see past their differences in order to envision a future together? Or are they destined to live the rest of their lives alone?
