For Richer or Poorer
Western Vows, Book 2
By Kari Trumbo
Genre: Historical Christian Romance

About the Book:

Elizabeth Whitte finds herself on the frigid border of Minnesota and Canada as winter sets in. When her plans for finding a husband and rushing back to Kansas fall through, she has to stay and learn a few things…like how to care for others.

Robert is a Mountie in Fort Frances, Canada. When he meets Elizabeth, his first instinct is to send her home. He's been burned by women like her in the past and knows his life isn't suited for them. Elizabeth's pull is strong, but he cannot leave his beloved Canada.

As Elizabeth matures in many ways, Robert must decide if sending her back to Kansas is still his best option. Could she learn to love him, and his beautiful home?

Excerpt from For Richer or Poorer:
Elizabeth gasped, she’d forgotten to get something for Robert. That would have been a good thing to do. She hadn’t had much time with Meg here, but what a terrible excuse.
Luc handed her a ball of entwined branches with delicate, tear-shaped leaves and white berries, a red ribbon tied to it as a hanger.
“Sticks?” She looked at him through her eyebrows. “You want me to give the man I want to convince to marry me a ball of sticks?” She held her hand back to throw it at him.
“It isn’t just sticks.” He raised up his hands to catch it if she followed through with her threat. “It’s a mistletoe ball. Don’t you know about mistletoe?”
“No. I don’t know why leaves would help me or be a good gift, hence, why I want to throw this at you.”
“Well don’t. It’s pretty fragile. I just made it this morning. A mistletoe ball is placed in a doorway and the woman caught underneath it must be given a kiss.”
Elizabeth considered this. “Kissing sticks?” She laughed inspecting the little green ball with one eyebrow notched dangerously high. “Does Robert know of this nonsense, or am I going to have to explain it?”
“I’m sure Robert knows. I think I even caught him a year or two ago kissing some unsuspecting lass under the mistletoe.”
Elizabeth shot daggers at him with her eyes. “Where can I find him?”
