About the Book:
He doesn’t need her sass. She doesn’t need his approval. But they both need a second chance.
An Unexpected Redemption – Book 2 in the Front Range Brides collection of stories about strong women who find and defend love in 1880s Colorado.
Abandoned by her faithless husband for the Dakota gold fields, rancher's daughter Elizabeth Beaumont returns to her hometown determined to prove she’s not the impetuous girl she once was. Armed with a new skill and old determination, she’s intent on making it on her own. Discovering that the new sheriff lives downstairs in the same boarding house wouldn’t be nearly so frustrating if he’d stay out of her affairs, quit calling her Betsy, and stop making her wonder if she could love again.
Sheriff Garrett Wilson’s first attempt at law enforcement cost an innocent bystander his life, so he exchanged his deputy’s badge for a drover’s bedroll. Now he’s back wearing a star in a Front Range cow town, hunting an arsonist and falling for a woman who wants to know the secret behind his deepest scar. He can run again from his painful past, or he can stay and fight for the town that needs him and the woman who’s worked under his skin and into his heart.
After reluctantly returning to her hometown under a cloud of shame and regret, Betsy Beaumont sets her sights on making it on her own. However, she soon finds her strong-willed nature clashes with Sheriff Garrett Wilson's easy-going, gentlemanly manner. At times throughout the plot, Betsy and Garrett's interactions were down right hilarious as he continually provoked her wrath all in good-natured fun! The romance between the two was subtle at first, later blossoming into a union filled with fiery kisses, gentle challenge, and heartfelt reminders of God's forgiveness and power to make all things new. I was so happy to see Deacon (among other past characters) make an appearance in this sequel, and was delighted with Maggie's character! She was not only wise, but also a little spit-fire! Spencer always does an exceptional job at bringing love to the Wild West frontier!
