A 21,000 word love story novella that will satisfy your longing for a clean and passionate romance!

The hand of God guides Bridgett and Jack to healing and redemption, and into one another's arms.

Meet Bridgett, a beautiful Civil War battlefield nurse who returns home once the war is ended and finds that everything has changed, and Jack, a former Deputy U.S. Marshal turned bounty hunter who brings in dangerous criminals for the reward money. Both Bridgett and Jack have been forsaken by their own families, but God draws them to a bustling mission that might become a new home, a new family for them. Things get complicated when a "bounty," the capture of the outlaw Pedro Cuatro-Dedos (Pedro Four-Fingers), goes wrong and threatens to destroy their chances before they've even begun. Through their struggles with faith and trust, they find their way back to God and overcome their doubts and fears.

This story is a western that takes place in southern Arizona in and around the beautiful, historical San Xavier Mission and interweaves Mexican and American culture. It is, ultimately, a story of love supported by a community of faith, from the monks who play matchmaker, to the people who volunteer and seek help at the mission. Bridgett and Jack bear witness to what can truly happen when a man and woman listen for God's call and rely on God's promises. It is a testimony to the power of love to redeem brokenness and restore wholeness in a world torn apart by war. After reading this romance novella, it is easy to believe that redemption is possible for everyone. And it is. In allowing God to work in their lives, Bridgett and Jack find that their own needs, and the world's need of their gifts, come together in perfect harmony and purpose. A truly satisfying read.

˃˃˃ What about Sex, Cursing, and Gratuitous Violence?

You won't find them here. While Bridgett and Jack, and their friends, are regular people who sin, they constantly strive to live as God intends. Their lives are steeped in the practices of prayer and worship. They read the Bible and are convicted or heartened by what they find there. When they fall, they rely on the Lord to help them up again. There is no preaching here. Everyone is equal on this journey of faith and humility.

˃˃˃ Inspired by Scripture

“Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you." John 14:1-2, NKJV
