Western Roundup Giveaway Hop: Enter to Win "Journey to Riverbend" by Henry McLaughlin (Paperback)

Welcome to the Third Annual Western Roundup Giveaway Hop! Every participating blogger is giving away a book in the western genre or sub-genres, whether it's cowboys, wizards on horseback, magical beings in the Old West, or pioneers on a wagon train, historical or contemporary! For my giveaway, I am offering a paperback copy of:

Journey to Riverbend
by Henry McLaughlin

About this book:
Michael Archer might not have been able to save Ben Carstairs, but he vowed to carry out Ben's dying wish: to be reconciled with his father. What he doesn't know is that Sam Carstairs -- the most ruthless businessman on the frontier -- has no use for his own son, much less a man of God seeking reconciliation.

Soon after arriving in the booming town of Riverbend, Michael meets the stunning Rachel Stone while waiting for Sam to return from a business trip. Beautiful yet guarded, Rachel is running from a past as dark as Michael's, and the last thing she expects -- or thinks she deserves -- is a chance at love.

When word reaches town that Sam has been kidnapped on the stagecoach home, Michael joins the search posse. But the trail ahead is more dangerous than any had imagined, and making it back alive will require Michael to face his past and overcome his deepest fear.

One lucky winner will receive a paperback copy of this book! Enter through the Rafflecopter form below.
