Angel and the Texan from County Cork by Carra Copelin

When Jamey O’Donnell answered a letter for help from an old friend. He arrives to find a feisty woman attempting to protect her land from others. Angel is Will’s widow and has discovered her husband was not the man she thought and that discovery means she is about to lose the only thing she has, the land. A bit of a bad boy cowboy, Jamey stays around, intending on only getting to the bottom of everything, but the spark that ignites between a defeated, yet defiant Angel moves something within his heart and has cooled his wanderlust for adventure.

Angel and the Texan from County Cork by Carra Copelin is a brief, yet action-packed tale of survival, bad dealings and love. Romantic, yet filled with some suspense, a great read for the Holidays, while sitting in front of a warm fire.
