Love Protects

(The fourth book in the Cross in the Woods Romance series)
A Novella by


“You know that this place has become a hotbed of love stories.”

The Cross in the Woods, a cattle ranch entrusted to Rebecca as the fourth-generation steward, becomes a crucible of transformation and romance. Determined to preserve the family legacy and seeking additional revenue streams to sustain the land, Rebecca faces the harsh reality of her self-reliant, loner nature. Seeking help is a challenging endeavor for her, but her prayers are answered one by one as individuals arrive at the ranch, igniting not only the flames of newfound business ventures but also the sparks of unexpected romance. Through their collective efforts, the ranch not only survives but flourishes in ways they never anticipated. 'The Cross in the Woods' intimately recounts their journey—a narrative of revitalization for the ranch, as they bring in new businesses, heal from their personal traumas, and kindle the fires of love.

Naomi, a van lifer seeking seasonal employment, feels a strong pull towards the ranch, which tugs at her heartstrings, yet she knows she eventually needs to put down roots. Henry, however, is a jarring presence in her life, and while she wishes he could always be her protector, she realizes the urgency of her departure. As she begins vlogging about the ranch, she becomes aware of the potential for unwanted attention that could challenge both the resilience of the close-knit community and her own worldview.

Henry has never encountered anyone who captivates him quite like Naomi does. Her free-spirited nature and apparent commitment to a life without attachments to the open road fascinate him, and he relishes listening to her stories and discovering her vlogs. However, amidst this enchantment, he detects an undercurrent of sadness and a distinct absence of roots in her, a contrast to the strong sense of belonging he cherishes within his close-knit community. He realizes he might be on the verge of falling deeply for Naomi, yet he harbors concerns that she may eventually depart, leaving him heartbroken and alone.

The Cross in the Woods series is based on Corinthians 13:4-7 (NIV). “Love Protects” is the fourth book in this seven-book series. Download this clean romance book to make you feel good about yourself and your world.
