Publisher's Description

Do They Have a Fighting Chance at Love?

After completing his sentence for the unintentional crime that derailed his youthful plans for fame and fortune, Levi Grant looks to start over in the town of Spencer, Texas. Spencer needs a blacksmith, a trade he learned at his father's knee, and he needs a place where no one knows his past.

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?

"Witemeyer's hard-hitting Christian historical romance skillfully incorporates Jesus' parables of the prodigal son and the adulteress' rock-toting accusers into her characters' struggles with redemption, worthiness, and new beginnings. A commendable addition to the genre."--Booklist

"Witemeyer is a talented author who plumbs the heart and soul of her characters while keeping a smile on the lips of the reader. Gentle humor pervades the story, never mocking, never crude, yet consistently illuminating the conundrums of life... To Win Her Heart is charming inspirational fiction that will certainly win the hearts of those who enjoy this genre."-- Historical Novels Review

"Seamless writing with an unexpectedly complex plot... This novel has everything that I love about Christian historical fiction."--Christian Manifesto

Author Bio

Karen Witemeyer is a deacon's wife and mother of three who believes the world needs more happily-ever-afters. She holds a master's degree in psychology from Abilene Christian University and is a member of ACFW, RWA, and her local writers guild. Karen lives in Abilene, Texas, with her family.

Publisher's Weekly

Witemeyer (Head in the Clouds) scores again with fresh, strong romance set in Spencer, Tex., in 1887. Levi Grant, just out of prison, gets a second chance when he becomes town blacksmith. Librarian Eden Spencer, the daughter of town founder Calvin Spencer, agrees to lease the smithy to Grant. Sparks of attraction fly even before the smithy forge is warmed. Both characters have pain in their pasts: Eden was jilted by her fiancé, and Levi was in prison for reasons that are slowly disclosed. A subplot involves yet another soul ripe for transformation: teen Chloe, who works in the kitchen of the Hang Dog, the local saloon. Witemeyer plots smoothly, writes crisp dialogue, and moves things along briskly. She also crafts surprisingly passionate attraction, given the evangelical Christian provenance of the book, and the swipes at hypocritical piety are refreshingly nondenominational.

    This review was written for To Win Her Heart - eBook.
    Karen Witemeyer brings us a beautiful story of forgiveness and second chances. This historical romance takes place in Spencer, Texas during 1887. We are introduced to Levi Grant who has just been released from Huntsville Prison. The man who walked out of prison is not the same as the one who walked in convicted of involuntary manslaughter. Levi was led to the Lord by the prison chaplain and he takes his salvation very seriously. He has arrived in Spencer in hopes to put his past behind him and become the town blacksmith.

    Eden Spencer is a beautiful, young woman who runs a library in town. She had moved from Galveston 5 years previously after being a jilted bride. She has not plans to ever let a man close enough to hurt her again. Her life is full of charitable works and the children at the library, so she was content. The only thorn in her side was the conceited Sheriff Pratt and his not understanding the word no.

    Upon meeting, Levi and Eden are instantly attracted to one another, but with Levi's past he know that he's not good enough for her. Secrets, they have a way of coming out and they do not always bring the positive results you might hope for.

    I really liked this story. I liked how Levi had a strong commitment to his faith. Also his understanding that just because God had forgiven him his past mistakes didn't necessarily mean others wouldn't judge him for those same mistakes. Eden's character surprised me . I expected her to be stuck up and not willing to see past Levi's job or his speech, but she looked at his heart and saw who he was deep inside. The plot is sweet and flows effortlessly. The characters are endearing and lovable and will keep you turning the pages.

    I would recommend this to anyone who loves a good, clean romance.

    *I received this book via Netgalley for a honest opinion without bias or outside influence.

    Well told story with genuine, likeable characters. Such a refreshing read that kept me turning the pages. This author has a way with capturing your attention and makes the reading experience very enjoyable.

    I cannot begin to explain how much this novel spoke to my heart. The honesty of Levi and the faith that he counts on to get him through his new start is admirable.

    There are some funny moments, suspenseful situations, and lots of depth in this terrific tale. If you are looking for a historical romance with some substance, this book is for you.

    Levi Grant has a past, he's killed a man and spent time in prison, now he's trying to start over. He found the Lord in prison, should I say he found him again since he was raised with the Lord in his life. The only one in Spencer, Texas that knows of his past is the preacher who is helping him get started as the new blacksmith for the town.

    Eden Spencer has a past that the whole town knows about, a town named after her family, and has turned from looking for a husband to running a library. She has to approve the new blacksmith but isn't sure about him because of his hesitant way of talking. Finally after he offers a one month trial period, Eden agrees to let him take over.

    The sheriff 'considers' himself engaged to Eden, Eden shuns him every time he tries to act possesive. Levi is beginning to be a thorn in the sheriff's side. Eden refuses to let Levi borrow books from the library because she doesn't want him coming in regularly to exchange books. He won't even say her name, calls her Ma'am even after she insists he call her Miss Spencer because Ma'am makes her feel decrepit. Her plan backfires though because he comes in daily so he can sit and read, I mean, if you can't take the book home and you want to read that is the only way, but she can't take back the two week residency requirement now.

    When the sheriff begins to feel really threatened by Levi's presence and he has found out about his past, his plan to bring Levi down is soon set into motion, will it work to get him to leave town or be reincarcerated?

    I really liked this book, and would recommend it to others. I have read other books by Karen and started a new one already, Short-Straw Bride and I have Stealing the Preacher in my stack of to read books.

    This story was written so well; it moved me to love Jesus more; I was so encouraged by the Spirit of Christ.

    And it was so refreshing to read of a character who had a speech impediment; I say a big THANK YOU to Karen Witemeyer for this wonderful story!

    I can honestly say that I could recommend Karen's work for any book club or anyone who just wants a good book to read. To Win Her Heart was a cute story of people who despite their past can make a great future for themselves and possibly with a little love involved :) Again all book Karen writes are recommended!
