I love the title of this blog, “A Bed of Roses…Thorns Included.” It fits perfectly with a theme I explored in my recent release, Spring Meadow Sanctuary. The Shepherd’s Heart series has taken a couple verses from Psalm 23 as the focus of each book. Spring Meadow Sanctuary’s verse was number 6: “Surely your goodness and mercy will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.” But as I wrote the book I got to thinking that we don’t always FEEL like goodness and mercy are following us. So how do tragedies and trials translate into goodness and mercy?
He broke her heart.Now he’s back to ask for a second chance.
Heart pounding in shock, Sharyah Jordan gapes at the outlaw staring down the barrel of his gun at her. Cascade Bennett shattered her dreams only last summer, and now he plans to kidnap her and haul her into the wilderness with a bunch of outlaws…for her own protection? She’d rather be locked in her classroom for a whole week with Brandon McBride and his arsenal of tricks, and that was saying something.
Cade Bennett’s heart nearly drops to his toes when he sees Sharyah standing by the desk. Sharyah Jordan was not supposed to be here. Blast if he didn’t hate complications, and Sharyah with her alluring brown eyes and silky blond hair was a walking, talking personification of complication.
Now was probably not the time to tell her he’d made a huge mistake last summer….
Two broken hearts. Dangerous Outlaws. One last chance at love.Step into a day when outlaws ran free, the land was wild, and guns blazed at the drop of a hat.
Me again: Thank you for the compliment on my blog. I invite you all to come back on Monday to read my review of Spring Meadow Sanctuary.
How has God changed your trials and tragedies into goodness and mercy?
