Sandra Chastain’s bestselling western romances shine with her special blend of love and laughter. Now the award-winning author leads us once again into the heart’s untamed territory as a mismatched couple rides a blazing trail to passion. McKenzie Kathryn Calhoun doesn’t mean to rob the bank in Promise, Kansas. But when she accidentally does, she doesn’t think—she runs. Suddenly the raggedy tomboy has the money to make a life for herself . . . if she doesn’t get caught. But it’s just her luck to find herself sitting across the stagecoach from a dangerously handsome, gun-toting preacher who seems to see through her bravado to the desperate woman beneath.
John Lee Brandon figures that the feisty redhead is running from something. A hired gun, he’s masquerading as a reverend on his way to a mining town called Heaven—and it will take a shrewder lady than Macky to pull the wool over his eyes. But when the town welcomes them as “Preacher Adams” and his wife, he’s caught in a charade of respectable wedded bliss. And the two of them are headed for a showdown between lies and love.
Includes a special message from the editor, as well as excerpts from these Loveswept titles: Ride with Me, See How They Run, and Ivy Secrets.
About Sandra Chastain
As a child I made up fantasy lives for my paper dolls, never knowing that I would use these same creative skills later as a writer. I only knew that I became those dolls and lived their lives. Later came amateur stage shows for the neighborhood children to perform, my first Nancy Drew mystery, a one-act play, and finally a musical performed by high school students on an auditorium stage. From the Indian tepee that Santa brought when I was a ten-year-old, to the living room I've recently converted into my office, I'm still stretching the boundaries of my imagination.
After twenty years of working together, my husband and I sold our small-animal veterinary practice. Now he consults and practices part-time while I write full-time. Our three daughters are married, and we have grandchildren who always want Gran to tell them a story. And Gran always complies.
I wouldn't change a thing about my life, for my family is a living expression of the love I write about. When I create a romance for you, I'm telling stories of love and commitment, and I can't tell you how much pleasure I get from writing about happily ever after. --Sandra Chastain
