A Claim of Her Own
Stephanie Grace Whitson

Bethany House Publishers

Dear reader,

When Mattie O'Keefe arrives in Deadwood, South Dakota, she finds the future she hoped for shattered. Determined to claim a fresh start, Mattie must soon decide where true riches lie--and what's worth dying for.

If you "run away from home" with Mattie, you'll be bullwhacking and prospecting alongside some pretty tough characters. But then you'll also get to dance with Wild Bill Hickok and meet a handsome guy named Aron Gallagher. The way to Mattie's happy ending isn't always easy, but it's my prayer that you'll decide it's worth the journey and be encouraged in your own walk of faith as you read it.

May the Lord bless you & yours,

The Reluctant Cowgirl
By Christine Lynxwiler

"This old-fashioned romance set in present-day Arkansas is the first book in Lynxwiler's fantastic new must-read McCord Sisters series. Crystal and Jeremy begin as friends, and their love develops over time. Be prepared to drop everything and settle down in a nice cozy place, because you will not want to leave Crystal and Jeremy until their story is told." ~ Romantic Times (4 ½ stars, TOP PICK for April)
“Clever dialogue flows easily and wittily, almost screenplay-like. . .”
~ Publisher's Weekly

Award-winning author, Christine Lynxwiler, is happy to present an excerpt from her newest release, The Reluctant Cowgirl. Here’s a brief summary of what has happened before the excerpt begins —

New York City – Barely off Broadway—It’s bad enough that actress Crystal McCord gets an email from her brother about a family crisis on the same day that her play is closing. But she has to face the defeat and emotional turmoil alone thanks to her boyfriend, Brad, who texts her that he’s helping a friend move instead of attending her performance. His absence, along with a splitting headache, convinces her that she needs to skip the cast party and call it an early night. . .

Meanwhile back at the ranch—Cattleman Jeremy Buchanan has spent the last year searching for his five-year-old daughter Beka, kidnapped by the mother she barely knew. Tonight, the PI on the case came by with news of another dead end. When the man leaves, Jeremy goes upstairs to bed, but instead of going into his room, he approaches the closed door beside it. . .

The Reluctant Cowgirl, as well as Christine’s other novels, may be purchased at bookstores everywhere and online at Christian Book Distributors - Author/Artist: Christine Lynxwiler Search - and other online sellers. Visit
