If you haven't yet discovered Karen Witemeyer and you love historical romance with a bit of sass and humor, as well as a poignant message of redemption, hope, and love, now is your chance. I'm giving away a copy of Karen's latest book To Win Her Heart. So be sure to leave a comment with your contact information at the end of this review so that you name will be thrown into the hat.
Just like her other novels, from the first page of this story you are drawn into the characters who both struggle with issues that threaten to keep them apart forever despite their attraction. An attraction that neither wants but cannot resist. Karen has a way of writing conflict between the heroine and hero that is both believable and entertaining. You find yourself rooting for both of them to get past all the roadblocks and declare their love, for heaven's sake! And when they do you want to cheer out loud. I hope Witemeyer is around a long while, churning out these wonderful stories.
ABOUT THE BOOK
Eden Spencer has sworn off men, choosing instead to devote her time to the lending library she runs in the town her father founded. When a mountain-sized stranger walks through her door and asks to borrow a book, she's reluctant to trust him. Yet as the mysteries of the town’s new blacksmith unfold, Eden discovers hidden depths in him that tempt her heart.
Eden believes she's finally found a man of honor and integrity. But when the truth about Levi's prodigal past comes to light, can this tarnished hero find a way to win back the librarian’s affections?

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
After growing up in California, Karen moved to Texas to attend Abilene Christian University where she earned bachelor and master's degrees in Psychology. It was also there that she met and married her own Texas hero. He roped her in good, for she has lived in Texas ever since. In fact, she fell so in love with this rugged land of sweeping sunsets and enduring pioneer spirit, that she incorporates it into the pages of her novels, setting her stories in the small towns of a state that burgeoned into greatness in the mid- to late1800s.
Karen is living her dream by writing Christian historical romance novels for Bethany House. When she visited her publisher back in January of 2010, she was interviewed by the staff. If you'd like a behind-the-scenes glimpse into how she develops her story ideas and a description of her bumpy journey to publication, click here to listen to a podcast of that interview.
