Wolf Creek Bride is a novella -length story, originally published as Small-Town Wedding, in Steeple Hill's Love Inspired anthology, BLESSED BOUQUETS. The new version takes place between the second and third of the original Wolf Creek books.Twelve years ago, as a young man, Griff Harrison was wild, reckless, and good looking, the traits all young girls are drawn to and every mother fears her daughter will fall for. Lydia North was no exception. But Lydia is a good girl and smart enough to know that allowing her forbidden feelings for Griff to develop would only mean heartbreak, so when his brother, Johnny, asks to court her, she jumps at the chance. Lydia and Johnny were inseparable her last year of school, and planned a life together. Then the unthinkable happens. Johnny and Griff are in a wagon accident. Griff, who was drinking, was driving the rig, and walks away with minor injuries. Johnny doesn't walk away at all. Lydia has never been able to forgive Griff, move on with her life and give her heart to another. Instead, she contents herself with helping her Aunt Hattie at the boarding house.When Griff returns to Wolf Creek as a new doctor, taking up the slack for Doctor Rachel Stone, who has recently married Gabe Gentry, Lydia can hardly believe his audacity! How can she face seeing him around town? And how dare he expect her to forgive him for robbing her of the life she might have had with Johnny? Yet, feeling as she does, she finds her forbidden, girlish attraction for the town's hell-raiser is still alive in a deep corner of heart. She soon realizes that her feelings toward Griff are just as wrong as the actions that led to Johnny's death. When the truth of that night comes out through an unexpected means, she learns that there are indeed two sides to every story, and for twelve long years she has only known one. Can Griff convince her to hear the whole truth about the night that changed all their lives? Can the bitterness she has clung to for so long be banished? Will Griff forgive her? And is there hope for a future together?
