A Texans Promise by Shelley Gray
When Vanessa is a victim of her stepfather's attack, Clayton, her family's ranch foreman, takes her away to save her from him. As Vanessa and Clay travel to safety, Clay realizes what it means to keep a promise and the two grow closer to God and to each other through their trials.
This was a sweet, though sometimes predictable, Christian romance. The author, Shelley Gray, is new to me. I enjoyed the characters. Vanessa and Clayton both made an interesting hero and heroine. The story line, with its setting in the Old West, was exciting enough to hold my interest. The characters' spiritual journey was inspiring without preaching at the reader. There were some predictable parts in Vanessa and Clayton's relationship, and a few times I thought the story dragged out a bit. But, for the most part, I really enjoyed this read from a new author, and I look forward to reviewing the second book in the series- A Texan's Honor.
I give this one a firm four stars with a PG rating (due to relationships of an adult nature).
I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley for review purposes. All opinions expressed are entirely my own.
