Straight for the Heart

By Vickie McDonough


Orphaned and destitute, Sarah Oakley hopes to find a home with her uncle in North Dakota. But when she learns he’s an outlaw, she and her young siblings flee, taking his bag of loot. Sarah hides her siblings and takes the gold into town alone, hoping to claim the reward. Instead, she’s thrown in jail to await the circuit judge. Her only hope for release is to marry a man she doesn’t know.

Quinn McFarland never expected to marry—and then his grandma sent for a mail-order bride. When the bride doesn’t show, he’s relieved but fears Grandma will just order another one. Quinn balks at the sheriff’s suggestion to just marry the gal in his jail so he can drop the charges against her. But she looks so sweet and obviously innocent that Quinn reconsiders.

Maybe this marriage can resolve Quinn’s and Sarah’s predicaments, but can it ever result in true love?

"Our help is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth.” Psalm 124: 8

Book Takeaway:

God can use extraordinary circumstances to do good works in our lives.

Why the author wrote this book:

I wanted to write Quinn's story. His twin siblings' stories are told in Wild at Heart and Straight for the Heart. Quinn always took care of his family, and he deserved to find a good woman to love. Granted, he never expected to find her in jail.
