Overview

From “incomparable” (Fresh Fiction) author Catherine Anderson comes a novel of lost souls, second chances, and love everlasting....

Random, Colorado, is just another stop on the road for solitary gunslinger Gabriel Valance. Known for his drinking, gambling, and womanizing, he prefers to remain a stranger to anyone who crosses his path. But when an upstart gunslinger catches Gabe off guard and shoots him down, he regrets his empty, lonely life with his dying breath....

Golden-haired beauty Nancy Hoffman settled in Random after fleeing an abusive past. Caring for her younger sister and working in a hat shop help her to forge ahead, though she remains fearful and mistrustful of men—and marriage.... 

Their paths will cross when Gabe gets a second chance at life and a divine mission: to sweep Nancy off her feet, gain her trust, and convince her to believe in his love. And in doing so, the once-hardened cowboy may save himself....

One cold Christmas morning, a lone-wolf gunslinger is shot down in Random, Colo.; he receives a second chance when two angels send him on a mission to convince another lonely soul to trust in him and fall in love. Gabriel Valance is considered the best gunslinger in the West, which makes him an automatic target for every man eager to take his title. Gabe is definitely not a pure soul, but he does live by his own unique moral code, which is perhaps why, when he is gunned down one sleepy Christmas morning in an unfair challenge, two angels take pity on him and give him a second chance. Tasked with convincing a beautiful hat maker hiding from an abusive past to fall in love with him, helping her trust in other people again, Gabe realizes that, in guiding her toward life-affirming faith and human connection, he is changing his own outlook as well. Trouble is, he only has 30 days to fulfill his assignment, and the closer he gets to success and his divine reward, the more he realizes he wants to stay on Earth. Best-selling romance author Anderson pens an emotionally touching story of second chances and new beginnings set in the Wild West of the 1880s. Valance and Nancy are both lonely, wounded characters who've learned to be suspicious of nearly everyone around them, but as they come to trust and open up to each other, they find a whole new set of souls desperate for love and attention, until soon enough, they've created a small community vital to the town's heart. Sweet and heartwarming, complete with a little Christmas magic, romance and a light message of divine forgiveness.
