A Sweet Misfortune

A Sweet Misfortune

(The second book in the Virtues and Vices of the Old West series)
A novel by

"My favorite Maggie Brendan book to date! Fun and fast-paced, A Sweet Misfortune will hold you captive with its colorful Western setting and cast of memorable characters. Woven within this heartfelt story is a beautiful thread of faith and love that is timeless."--Laura Frantz, author of The Mistress of Tall Acre

Rachel Matthews isn't one to rely on others to take care of her. Homeless and alone, she still wants to make her own way and her own money to buy back the family ranch--even if she's forced into the life of a dance hall girl. Horrified by her circumstances, Rachel's brother, who is away mining for gold, sends a friend to rescue her.

Cattle baron John McIntyre is focused on acquiring as much land as possible in Montana and has little time to deal with a dance hall gal. Rachel isn't sure she can take one more day in John's home--especially once she discovers that he's the one who holds ransom the key to her family's future.

Sparks fly between this spunky, independent heroine and the ruggedly handsome hero as they navigate the snarled terrain of pride, greed, faith, and love in Maggie Brendan's delightful series set in the Old West.
