Caught between a noose and a gold mine cave-in, Tulsa Sanderson must do anything within his power to prove his outlaw brother’s innocence…even if it means marrying a gold miner’s daughter he just met. Tulsa needs every nugget and flake he can pull from beautiful Charmlee’s worn-out claim, but he sure doesn’t need a wife!

Charlotte Amalie lost her heart, her virtue, and her money to the last disreputable outsider who passed through her peaceful California valley months ago. She has no desire and no choice but to wed the handsome stranger who arrives, bearing a mysterious letter that will change both their lives forever.

Charmlee and Tull each have plans of their own. He’s set on raising quick money to save his brother’s life—a secret he isn’t going to share. She’s determined to leave the valley to find a new life for herself and medical treatment for her own brother. Marriage would put an end to the plans they’ve each worked so hard for, but is there a bigger dream for the future ahead that they can’t see? Trusting comes hard for them both, but Charmlee realizes it’s the only way to stake her claim on what’s really important— CLAIMING HIS HEART.

  5. I know Claiming His Heart is going to be a terrific story and I look forward to reading it. All the best to you, Tanya.

  6. Goodness, y'all, these glowing words are sure warming my heart. My first-ever long inspy western historical, sheesh, a mouthful. Being the first...a tad nervous about it but so glad you think CHH has potential. I love the setting and the ruins left over in the real Holcomb Valley. I'm brainstorming Book Two whenever I can grab onto a few stress-free minutes. I can't thank Prairie Rose Publications enough for bringing the book to life and for their support of me. Hugs to all and Merry Christmas!
