They survived a harrowing near-death experience. Can a poignant family Christmas bring them together?

Ida needs a quiet Christmas at home to rest and find her footing again. But her boisterous family is anything but quiet and things only get worse when her U.S. Marshal brother brings home a prisoner for the holiday—the same outlaw that saved her life.

Tom Seymour discombobulates her. He’s arrogant and unrepentant. But when she’s forced to nurse his injuries, she realizes that his persona is all a facade. The man underneath is wounded and kind and in need of redemption.

But Tom must make a choice between his old life and the chance to make a new one with Ida. Can she trust the man he is becoming or will he betray her?

I truly enjoy Chrisitan Historical Romance.  Heart of Gold by Lacy Williams is Book 17 in the Wind River Hearts series. I have read a couple of the books in this series and was excited to read this one! 

Ida is wanting to have nice and quiet Christmas with her family after a near-death experience. Her "dreams" of a quiet Christmas are probably not going to happen because her family is anything but quiet. Her brother, who is a US Marshall, then brings a prisoner home for  Christmas and Ida recognizes him. The Prisoner saved her life. Having Tom Seymour in the house puts Ida all off Track. She is in charge of taking care of his injuries when she would rather be relaxing and enjoying Christmas. She begins to realize that he truly is a kind-hearted man and he is in need of Redemption. Tom is smitten by Ida and realizes he needs to make some decisions and changes in his life. Will Tom become a man who Ida can trust? Will Tom return to his life of Crime or will he choose to do good and become a man that is trustworthy? Will there be a romance between Tom and Ida? 

I truly enjoyed this short story from the first chapter and could not put it down until I finished it. I really LOVE how Ida has a heart change from being resentful for being in a noisy environment rather than a quiet Christmas. Tom is a moody and angry person because of his past, losing his parents at an early age and having a life of crime. I really enjoyed seeing him become kind and open his heart to change his life. The author really does a great job at the time period accuracy for this book. The book is one of Second Chances and Growth. GREAT BOOK!

Lacy Williams wishes her writing career was more like what you see in Hallmark movies: dreamy brainstorming from a French chateau or a few minutes at the computer in a million-dollar New York City penthouse. In reality, she’s up before the sun, putting words on the page before her kids wake up for the day. Those early-morning and late-night writing sessions add up, and Lacy has published sixty books in a decade, first with a big five publisher and then as an indie author. When she needs to refill the well, you can find Lacy birdwatching, gardening, biking with the kiddos, or walking the dog. Find tons of bonus scenes and reader extras by becoming a VIP reader at .

Do you like “stranded together” stories as much as I do? Being stuck in an airport, a snowstorm, a wedding weekend… Yes, please, to all of the above.

But has it ever happened to you in real life?

Twenty-plus years ago, when I was a freshman in college and before I started dating my handsome hubby, I dated this other guy.

We met at a mixer during the first few days of the semester and hit it off pretty quickly. Classes started, we saw each other a few times socially.

He was pledging a fraternity and invited me to go with him to a co-ed overnight trip.

And then when we got there, he sort of just… disappeared. For hours. I finally found him and then followed him around… until I finally got the hint. Sometime in the days between when he’d invited me to the float trip, and when we arrived, his feelings changed.

It was SOOO awkward for the rest of the night and then the next day. Not the place and time I wanted to be ghosted. And it was worse because I’d ridden down with a mutual friend and had no way to get the two-plus hours home until the next day.

It wasn’t a romantic or fun time. More like a disaster.

A disaster is exactly what my heroine Ida thinks about being stuck with ex-bad guy Tom for Christmas. They get snowed in with her family (and her deputy older brother) and at first it is awkward.

And then… it’s not awkward anymore.

By the time the snow melts, Ida has caught feelings for Tom.

You can read this story free in KU or win a copy through this giveaway! Ida and Tom’s love story is called Heart of Gold.

The messages of redemption and forgiveness are so appropriate for a Christmas story, but the romance would be wonderful reading any time of the year.
