PUBLISHER’S WEEKLY REVIEW OF THE UNEXPECTED CHAMPION

Set in 1868 Dismal, Nev., this pleasing third installment of Connealy’s High Sierra Sweethearts series (after Reluctant Warrior) features a romance between unlikely companions. Outlaw Raddo Landauer has just been shot to death in the streets of Dismal, and local Penny Scott and visiting businessman John McCall meet for the first time when they rush to the scene of the shoot-out. As they wait outside the sheriff’s office while he questions witnesses to the shooting, they are taken prisoner by three masked gunmen who want answers about Raddo’s death. After traveling some distance in the back of a wagon, Penny manages to free herself and John, and the two escape into the wilderness. Meanwhile, Penny’s brother Cam is convinced that John kidnapped her due to eyewitness accounts of the kidnapping. When the two finally return after several days lost in the woods, John is given the choice to hang for kidnapping (despite Penny’s protests) or marry Penny. The horrified newlyweds soon set off to restore their reputation by hunting down the men who kidnapped them to prove they were in cahoots with Raddo, and also to determine if they can stand each other enough to live as man and wife. As the danger and violence ramp up, so does their affection. While faith plays a minor role in this clean western romance, fans of the series will enjoy Connealy’s rough-riding romance.

Bestselling Romance — New Western Romance Series from Bestselling Author Mary Connealy — RT Book Review Top Pick

When Trace Riley finds the smoldering ruins of a small wagon train, he recognizes the hand behind the attack as the same group who left him as sole survivor years ago. Living off the wilderness since then, he’d finally carved out a home and started a herd–while serving as a self-appointed guardian of the trail, driving off dangerous men. He’d
hoped those days were over, but the latest attack shows he was wrong.

Deborah Harkness saved her younger sister and two toddlers during the attack, and now finds herself at the mercy of her rescuer. Trace offers the only shelter for miles around, and agrees to take them in until she can safely continue. His simple bachelor existence never anticipated kids and women in the picture and their arrival is unsettling–yet enticing.

Working to survive the winter and finally bring justice to the trail, Trace and Deborah find themselves drawn together–yet every day approaches the moment she’ll leave forever.

“In the first installment of Connealy’s new High Sierra Sweethearts series, delightful characters entertain readers page after page with an adventurous and often perilous plot. . . . With a determined and independent leading lady and an unassuming hero befuddled by all things feminine, even Connealy’s point-of-view transitions are wildly entertainingThe Accidental Guardian explores issues of trust, justice, commitment and faith. The contrast of the unpredictable winter weather and snug, cozy evenings by the fire is echoed by the hard work of survival and discovery of genuine faith through a salvaged Bible. This story’s enticing conclusion leaves readers primed for the next installment.” – RT Book Reviews Top Pick

Nancy, you can download a Kindle app to any device. iPhone, laptop, desktop. Both Mac and PC, so you do NOT need a Kindle.

Love, love, love your books. Is there a way to read the prequel Closer Than Brothers and the Seekers Collections Volume 9 without a Kindle? I do not have such a thing. I have enjoyed each and every book and story you have written so far!!!! Please keep them coming.

You are one of my top favorite authors! My husband hears all about your stories when I'm reading one of your books. The other day, his work required him to drive a truck to a town on Caddo Lake called Uncertain, TX. He said, "Hey, that would be a great setting for a mystery book." Just thought you might like that idea.

I simply love your books. I have read many of them and I have never been disappointed. They are sweet and heart-warming stories that not only have made me laugh and cry, but they also are a reminder of the wonderful things that God can do. I know that the books are fictional, but in my twenty years of life, I have witnessed the power of God work in the life of real people in similar ways, including me. Thank you, Mary, for being part of your ministry and using your remarkable talent for the glory of God. You better believe that it's impacting people's life. God bless you!

This week I went to the library looking for something different to read. Your book spine caught my eye with its fancy writing and a picture of a cowgirl. Whoo hoo! The book was Tried & True. I finished it in 3 days and absolutely loved it! These 3 sisters are a real hoot! I am heading back for the 2nd and 3rd to read, as I put them on my hold list. Keep up the great work and look forward to reading other stories from you. A new avid reader.

I have been a reader since I learned how. I have read many different kinds of books. I love your western romances so much. I enjoyed them so much. It's nice to read a clean romance with great historical reality.
Debbie C. from Marietta, Ohio wrote on June 10, 2015:
Mary, I so love your books. I grew up reading "romance" novels and they gave me such a false impression of love and kindness. Reading your books and other Christian books these last several years since I joined the LDS church has been such an inspiration to me. I know the books are just fictitious, but they seem so much more real than the smut I grew up on. I love my Heavenly Father and feel sure he agrees with me that you are one of the best writers of Christian fiction and the best example of Christian love there is today. Bless you for your work and keep it up. 😀
