The Trail Boss's Bride

Here’s the first line:

Steve Ketchum had heard it said that there were only two things on God’s green earth that cowboys were afraid of: being left afoot and a decent woman, and he believed it.

From New York Times bestselling author Erica Vetsch comes a stirring western romance (part of the Journeys of the Heart anthology):

Steve Ketchum loves being a trail boss, almost as much as he hates river crossings. But it’s part of the job. As is moving an abandoned wagon out of the ford. But when he goes to haul it away, he’s stunned to see what’s inside.

Kitty Fareholm’s good-for-nothing husband picked a lousy time to die. How could he leave her stranded, birthing a baby in the middle of nowhere? She’d prayed for help to come, but did God honestly think a trail-worn cowboy was what she needed? What’s more, Steve’s trail crew is dead-set against having a woman join their camp. He promises the men he’ll leave her at the nearest town…but Kitty just might have other plans.

  1. Cute! Here are the first two lines from a book I am looking forward to — Living Lies by Natalie Walters. “Just let go. The breeze lifted Lane Kent’s auburn hair from the back of her neck.”

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. Happy Friday!

    Today on my blog, I am sharing the first few lines from The Heart of a King by Jill Eileen Smith: https://christianfictiongirl.blog/2019/05/02/first-line-friday-85/. I am beginning chapter 20 so I will leave the first line from there.

    “Abishag’s mood slipped into melancholy as the months continued on after King David’s death, a mood she had not experienced to any great length since her mother had passed into Sheol.”

    Hope you have an excellent weekend. Happy reading! 🙂💚📚

  3. I shared it. Sounds fascinating. I’m heading to Amazon after this to check it out.

    On my blog, I’m featuring Romancing the Bride by Melissa Jagears. My current read is Becoming Mrs. Lewis by Patti Callahan. Since I’m about to start Chapter 5, I will share the first line from that chapter. “From a hazy woodland sleep, Davy and Douglas’s laughter along with that of the Walsh girls flooded through the open window.” May you enjoy a wonderful weekend.

  4. Haha, nice first line!
    Today on my blog I shared the first line from The Refuge by Ann Gabhart but my next read I’ll be starting shortly is Shadow Among Sheaves by Naomi Stephens so I’ll share the first line from the prologue here: “The sun was the same, but that was all.” Hope you have a wonderful weekend! Happy Reading!

  5. Happy Weekend! My first line is from “Sweet on You” by Becky Wade, and I can hardly wait to start it!

    “Five hundred and eleven days had passed since he’d seen her last.”

  6. That’s a promising premise! Happy Friday! I’m sharing from The Pink Bonnet by Liz Tolsma on my blog today, but here’s the first line from chapter two of my current read, When Mountains Move by Julie Cantrell:

    “There’s something romantically hopeful about having a wedding in the middle of a war.”
