Brought Together by a Baby
Bounty hunter Thomas Beaufort has no problem handling outlaws, but when he’s left with a criminal’s baby to care for, he’s in over his head. And the only person he can think of to ask for help is Esther Jensen, the woman whose heart he broke when he left town. But can he convince her to put aside the past until he tracks down the baby’s outlaw father?
Esther is ready to run Thomas off her Texas ranch—until she spies the abandoned newborn in his arms. Soon, working together to care for the precious babe stirs old hopes of a family. With trouble heading to their door, they could overcome it together—if she’ll entrust her wary heart to this sweet, second-chance family…
What I Loved: I’ve come to rely on Erica Vetsch to deliver a solid western and The Bounty Hunter’s Baby hit the spot. There was a bit of danger, lots of dust, an adorable newborn, two characters that you can’t help but root for, a message for the heart, and a bit of clean romance to top it all off.
I was drawn into the story the moment Thomas Beaufort burst onto the page, bringing with him the greatest dog I’ve ever met in a novel before. Rip was a delight! Hats off to you, Erica, for creating such a lovable pooch.
Rating and Recommendation: I recommend The Bounty Hunter’s Baby to anyone who enjoys Christian Historical Fiction, Christian Western, or for those who can’t wait to meet the delightful Rip. I’m giving it 5 stars.
