Win, Love, or Draw (Marriage & Mayhem) (Volume 1)

By Crystal L Barnes


Catherine McGarrett is a strong woman. Life in Texas demands such. For five years, she has built a growing horse ranch while praying for the return of the one man who stole her heart and shattered it in a million pieces when he left. Now he’s back. Samuel McGarrett rides into Cater Springs, Texas toting two six-shooters and too many scars. The trouble and pain from the past erupts around the couple. And not just in their marriage. Can Sam win Catherine’s trust? Will their love survive? Or will his final draw be his last? Win, Love, or Draw is an exciting tale of forgiveness and reconciliation set in the Old West. A clean, Christian, historical romance.

Book Takeaway:

I hope readers realize, like Catherine, that God is the answer to every problem, be it a need to forgive someone or troubles that are bigger than us (but never bigger than God).
