Dreams of My Heart

The Reluctant Bride Series by Barbara J. Scott

Can a reluctant bride and her new husband fall in love despite their wounded hearts?

Plucky Irish immigrant Kate O’Brien struggles to hang on to her brother’s homestead after his death in a suspicious cattle stampede. If she’s unable to pay off the loan that paid for her ticket to America, she will be forced to marry the banker’s rogue son, Rafe Hamilton.

When Kate is attacked by a drunken gang, salvation comes in the form of a total stranger—Texas cattleman Buck McKean. He drives the men off her ranch and spends the night in her cabin to keep her safe. However, his act of kindness poses a profound threat to her reputation, and the two marry to prevent the impending consequences.

Kate makes it clear to her new husband that because of the abuse she suffered at the hands of her stepfather, she’ll never allow another man to control her life. Left at the altar in Virginia City, Buck has made his own vow never to give his heart to another woman.

When Kate asks Buck for the unthinkable, her choice endangers both their lives. Can God mend their hearts and save their love?

Sleigh Bells Ring

by Barbara J. Scott, Sandra D. Bricker, Lynette Sowell, Lenora Worth

Four authors bring together four compelling and charming stories of four very different sisters on the verge of important decisions. Each hopeful and sweetly romantic tale reinforces the power of family, prayer, and faith. Each novella moves through lighthearted moments as well as introspective ones, offering a balance that maintains interest while taking the family issues seriously. Writing is usually a solitary act, but reader-favorite authors (and friends) Sandra D. Bricker, Barbara J. Scott, Lynette Sowell, and Lenora Worth got a happy Christmas miracle when invited to work together on Sleigh Bells Ring.
