I’d love to share book one VOW UNBROKEN with a commenter. It's book one in the Texas Romance Family Saga series, when Suzannah Baylor meets Henry Buckmeyer an dhires him to help get her cotton crop to market.
I’m offering to draw from those who leave a comment for a blessed person to send a print book to!
