The Accidental Guardian
by Mary Connealy

The Accidental Guardian by Mary ConnealyWhen Trace Riley finds the smoldering ruins of a small wagon train, he recognizes the hand behind the attack as the same group who left him as sole survivor years ago. Living off the wilderness since then, he’d finally carved out a home and started a herd–while serving as a self-appointed guardian of the trail, driving off dangerous men. He’d
hoped those days were over, but the latest attack shows he was wrong.

Deborah Harkness saved her younger sister and two toddlers during the attack, and now finds herself at the mercy of her rescuer. Trace offers the only shelter for miles around, and agrees to take them in until she can safely continue. His simple bachelor existence never anticipated kids and women in the picture and their arrival is unsettling–yet enticing. 

Working to survive the winter and finally bring justice to the trail, Trace and Deborah find themselves drawn together–yet every day approaches the moment she’ll leave forever.

  1. Adorable cover! Just look at the smile on her face, the sun glistening in her hair and the gorgeous view in the background that screams “go see me”. Just the cover alone would have me selecting this book but the storyline of “The Accidental Guardian” sounds awesome.

    So many great covers but I would have to say the visual content of “The Accidental Guardian” would be the one to catch my eye first.

    Thank you for this opportunity to win a copy!

  2. Her new cover is hard to beat, and is quite different from her last series. I also have always liked that Home on the Range cover.


  3. Good morning Beth!
    These are all lovely book covers and hard to pick just one. But I love the little girls face on The Accidental Guardian, she is adorable and the tall cowboy beside her makes it even more enchanting….and the story sounds very interesting.

    Thank you for a chance to win a copy!
    Blessings, Tina


  4. Catching the Wind and Waiting for Butterflies. I read both these books and the covers match the characters and story l lines perfectly.


  5. I love Mary’s new cover. Ruth’s cover as well as the whole series as you mentioned have long been a favorite of mine and keepers on my shelf. These were the first books I read of hers.


  6. I adore the When God Made You and When God Made Light book covers. I haven’t actually read them, but it looks like the perfect gift for my niece and little cousins. Catching the Wind and The Accidental Guardian are cute book covers, too.


  7. I think that The Accidental Guardian has the most adorable cover. Can’t beat a handsome, rough and tough cowboy holding the hand of that sweet little girl.


  8. What a fun post! I love Mary Connealy’s cover–cowboy, adorable little girl, mountain scenery–what more could you ask?. I also love Ruthy’s cover for the same reason, although the mountains are missing for some reason. ???? Waiting for Butterflies calls to me, too.


  9. Seriously they are all pretty awesome in different ways. I would have to say my favorite is The Accidental Guardian because I love how the little girl is looking back. My next favorite is Home on the Range by Ruth Logan Herne. Something cute about the interaction in the cover. And God Made You! I love the little girl in this one! There is joy in it that you can feel!


  10. Home on the range- catching wind. Waiting on butterflies and accidental guardian sounds like a great read wilderness hard times intriguing ty fpr this great giveaway.


  11. I like Mary Connealy’s new book because of the man with the child and beautiful scenery. I also like Gabrielle Meyer’s book A Family Arrangement because of the family with 2 children at the Christmas tree and the log house with a fireplace.


  12. Wow! I can’t imagine going through something like that nor would I want to. The book sounds really good! Thanks for drawing me in by such a good description!
