If the Boot Fits

Coming March 2024

Determined to prove that cattle king Eli Dearing has no justification for evicting his stepmother and half brothers, Asher Ellis uses the cover of a fancy ball to break into the Three Cedars ranch house to search for proof of wrongdoing. On the verge of discovery, he flees, but a boy's cry compels him to make a daring rescue.

Spunky and independent, Samantha Dearing balks when she learns the ball her father is hosting in her honor is nothing more than a matrimonial ambush. Taking a break from her unwanted suitors, Samantha spots a thief fleeing her home. When the stranger ends up saving her brother's life, she hides the only clue to his identity left behind--his boot--and resolves to find him herself.

In the midst of her search, Samantha encounters the older brother of a student she tutors, and all thoughts of the bootless mystery man vanish. Asher tries to keep his distance from Samantha, knowing she can destroy him if she uncovers his secret, but his protective instincts flare when a series of suspicious accidents befall her. He vows to keep her safe, even if it means forfeiting his future.

This Western reimagining of the classic Cinderella fairy tale is an enchanting story of courage, family, and the power of true love.
