This Week's Featured Title is...

The Reluctant Outlaw by Paige Winship Dooly
HP 944

Her life as an outlaw is over.

Bella is determined that she and her sister, Andria will escape the clutches of their greedy, evil brothers. No longer will they blindly follow orders and aid in the robbery and harm of innocent people.

When Duncan agreed to help catch the notorious McLeod gang, he never expected two of them to practically land in his lap. And he certainly never expect them to be female! Nor did he expect the sheriff to assign him the task of escorting them safely back to their ho,me. And why, he wonders, would God make an outlaw so irresistible?

As his attraction to Bella grows and the danger around them intensifies, Duncan finds himself walking a fine line between his calling as a preacher and his own secret past. Can he protect her and still remain true to his Lord?

Book Excerpt

"Evenin' ladies. Seems ya'll left somethin' behind."

The women spin around with weapons raised. Andria had snatched up a nearby log, while Bella had her rifle trained on him.

"Whoa, it's just me!" Duncan raised his arms.

They stood and stared st him for a few moments before recognizing him and lowering the weapons. Bella leaned against hers and glowered while Andria stood with a hand to her heart. Andria looked as if she'd seen a ghost while Bella returned his cocky glance and looked over at their belongings. "I don't see anything of importance missin', Andria, do you? Whatever could we have forgotten, Reveren Bowers?"


Bella rolled her eyes. "In order to 'forget' you, I would have had to plan to bring you along in the first place. In case you didn't notice, I didn't plan any such thing."

Psalms 18:3 KJV
I will call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies.
