CFBA: The Vigilante's Bride by Yvonne Harris

Song Stuck on the Brain: Rain on Me by Erwin

Not to toot my own horn, it just happens that my own song is what I'm singing in my brain. You can hear a clip on the song player in the side bar. It's the last track on the player.

This week, the Christian Fiction Blog Alliance is introducing:

The Vigilante's Bride
Bethany House (August 1, 2010)


Yvonne Harris


Yvonne has a great first novel here. The interaction between Emily and Luke is fun, fast paced and full of energy. I love that Luke "thinks" he's finally got Emily in hand and all figured out. He has so much to learn.

The interaction with the Crow Natives was interesting too. I appreciated her realistic look at their culture and their situation at that time in history. That they weren't all savage, white-man haters that were out for blood.

The story was well written and full of little surprises that had me cheering Luke and Emily through the whole story.


Montana Territory, 1884...Is Her Kidnapper the Only Man Who Can Keep Her Safe?

Robbing a stagecoach on Christmas Eve and abducting a woman passenger is the last thing Luke Sullivan expected to do. He just wanted to reclaim the money stolen from his pa, but instead ended up rescuing a feisty copper-haired woman who was on her way to marry Sullivan's dangerous enemy. Emily McCarthy doesn't take kindly to her so-called rescue. Still, she's hoping Providence will turn her situation for good, especially when it seems Luke Sullivan may just be the man of her dreams. But Luke has crossed a vicious man, a powerful rancher not used to losing, and Emily is the prize he's unwilling to sacrifice.
