      A Husband To Hold
Cheryl Wolverton

RUNNING AWAYShe had caught everyone's eye. Petite, mysterious Leah Thomas was new to Hill Creek, Texas, and the entire town had taken notice. Especially one handsome cowboy, who'd offered to give Leah some much-needed help.Soon Mark Walker learned that the blond beauty wasn't as helpless as she appeared. But she had something hidden inside that she refused to reveal. And Mark was determined to find the key to her heart….Leah was running from a past she couldn't forget. But to help her, Mark had to stop running, too. Only with God's help–and each other's–could they reach their paths of redemption and find a future together….

“Oh, dear. I didn’t even offer to help.” Leah clasped her hands together, worry creasing her brow.

Mark reached out and caught her fingers. She jumped, almost pulling back before catching herself. Staring down to where he’d grabbed her hands, his darker ones covering her pale skin, she realized how long it had been since a man had actually held her hands.

“No reason to be nervous,” he said. “That’s a bad habit of yours, clasping your hands whenever you’re worried.

She swallowed, reminding herself that Mark worked for the sheriff. As handsome and attractive as he was, she had to get a grip on herself. She couldn’t let her guard down.

Forcing herself to relax, she smiled gently at Mark. “I’ll remember that,” she said.

—Psalms: 31:3

Dedicated to my mother-in-law, Phyllis,

Thanks for your wonderful son.

He’s a rare treasure. Also to Dottie Ramsey,

one of the best teachers I’ve ever met.

To the Zachary Police Department. My kids

have grown up with you guys and you’re the best.

Thanks for the job you do and thanks

Thanks also to my wonderful gentle editor,

Patience Smith, who takes time to tell me how she

feels about my stories, and works with me to help

me grow. You are a treasure, dear one, whom I hope

to have a long time! And to my agent, Deidre.

Thanks for representing me! And always to

my husband, Steve, and my kids, Christina and
