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

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.
