Today marks the release of my second Love Inspired Historical, The Bounty Hunter's Baby.
Brought Together by a Baby
Bounty hunter Thomas Beaufort has no problem handling outlaws, but when he's left with a criminal's baby to care for, he's in over his head. And the only person he can think of to ask for help is Esther Jensen, the woman whose heart he broke when he left town. But can he convince her to put aside the past until he tracks down the baby's outlaw father?
Esther is ready to run Thomas off her Texas ranch—until she spies the abandoned newborn in his arms. Soon, working together to care for the precious babe stirs old hopes of a family. With trouble heading to their door, they could overcome it together—if she'll entrust her wary heart to this sweet, second-chance family…
One of my favorite characters in this story is a milking goat named Daisylu. Daisylu loves Esther, but she takes a dead set against Thomas. The battle between Daisylu and Thomas cracked me up. They each try to outfox the other at every turn.
Another fun character in this book is Rip, Thomas's dog. He's a mixed-breed mutt who is a great tracking dog, but also a devoted protector of baby Johnny. Rip hates to leave the baby's side, even to track bad guys!
I am finding a real love of writing dogs and other pets into my stories. There's just something about the bond between a man and his dog...and a child and a dog...that melts my heart.
To celebrate the release of The Bounty Hunter's Baby, I'm giving away a copy of the book to one person who comments below.
