To Win Her Heart by Karen Witemeyer
Book blurb from Google books : “Having completed his sentence for the unintentional crime that derailed his youthful plans for fame and fortune, Levi Grant looks to start over in the town of Spencer, Texas. Spencer needs a blacksmith, a trade he learned at his father's knee, and he needs a place where no one knows his past. But small towns leave little room for secrets...Eden Spencer has sworn off men, choosing instead to devote her time to the lending library she runs. When a mountain-sized stranger walks through her door and asks to borrow a book, she steels herself against the attraction he provokes. His halting speech and hesitant manner leave her doubting his intelligence. Yet as the mysteries of the town's new blacksmith unfold, Eden discovers hidden depths in him that tempt her heart. Levi's renewed commitment to his faith leads Eden to believe she's finally found a man of honor and integrity, a man worthy of her love. But when the truth about his prodigal past comes to light, can this tarnished hero find a way to win back the librarian's affections?”
Why I like this cover: I do love librarians, so this should be a good book for me. J But I do think, having read the book blurb, that since Eden’s a librarian, she should be holding a book. Anyway! The man, Levi, is distinctly rugged. Brown arms (rather dirty) full of muscles, and not a slight build. Classic blacksmith attire – blue jeans, heavy boots, and a striped shirt. And then Eden. A spring green dress over an underskirt that has a white background and a variety of pink flowers. White gloves, curls, and a tiny smile go perfectly! And her bouquet. While I do think a book would have fit there best, the flowers do add a pretty touch. There they stand, in the middle of town. I can’t wait to read this!
