The one suitor Mara Lawton cannot add to her collection is the one she wants most--Clay Stedman. Clay has just arrived in Cedar Springs to work the Stedman ranch. His widowed aunt is leaving to visit family back East, and Clay must find someone to care for his little sister and perform the household chores--like cooking for fourteen cowboys, doing the laundry, and feeding the hogs. Mara offers Clay her services, despite having never cooked a meal, washed a garment, or gone near a hog in her life. Clay is taken with Mara's looks, but a recent heartbreak makes him wary--that and the fact she doesn't share his faith in God. For Mara, whose self-worth is based on her family's wealth and royal lineage, obstacles and reverses create a terrible inner turmoil. Will she cling to her own ways or allow God to move in her life? Fall in love with this inspiring love story and our entire collection of Christian romance novels from Heartsong Presents!

About the Author

DENISE HUNTER lives in Indiana with her husband and three active young sons. As the only female of the household, every day is a new adventure, but Denise holds on to the belief that her most important responsibility in this life is to raise her children in such a way that they will love and fear the Lord. "Stranger's Bride" was her first published novel. The message Denise wants her writing to convey is that 'God needs to be the center of our lives. If He isn't, everything else is out of kilter.'

I really didnt like the main character Mara at first. I found her selfish, selfcentered, and a real jerk. I almost didnt read past the first couple of chapters but I did and Im glad. I really enjoyed seeing Mara grow and change as a person. I loved how Clay put God first rather than cause a rift in Mara's family. And I was so pleased by the results of their faithfulness to God. It was a great book and I think its worth a read.

Love Denise Hunter books, but the writing style of this book wasn't what I was use to. This is a re-release of a book written by Denise in 2002 (I think it must of been one of her first attempts.) It wasn't bad, but she has definitely progressed as a writer! It was an easy read, but I would of spent the money on one of her more recent writings.
