Earning Mountain Mans Trust

Love and Redemption in the Montana Wilderness

In “Earning the Mountain Man’s Trust,” I was transported to the untamed beauty of the Montana Territory, where the Coulter ranch stands as a bastion of family and redemption.

At the heart of the story is Naomi Wyatt, a resilient young woman who has weathered the storms of love and loss. Left alone to care for her precious daughter after being abandoned by her first love, Naomi finds solace in the friendship and unwavering support of Jonah Coulter. When Jonah offers her a chance at a new beginning through marriage, Naomi sees a glimmer of hope amidst her pain.

Trust in Love

However, fate takes an unexpected turn when Naomi’s past collides with her present. The return of her first love threatens to unravel the fragile peace she has painstakingly built, forcing her to confront the ghosts of her past and the uncertainties of her future. As tensions mount and danger looms on the horizon, Naomi is faced with the ultimate challenge: to trust in love once more, even in the face of betrayal and uncertainty.

Forgiveness, Redemption, and the Transformative Power of Love

The author’s masterful storytelling transported me into a world of rugged landscapes, sweeping romance, and unyielding resilience. Through vivid prose and richly drawn characters, she deftly explores themes of forgiveness, redemption, and the transformative power of love. From the tender moments shared between Naomi and her daughter to the gripping suspense of looming threats, the book kept me eagerly turning pages until the very end.

Romance and Adventure

With its blend of heartwarming romance and pulse-pounding adventure, I think this book will appeal to fans of historical romance and frontier fiction alike. I believe the author crafted a tale as timeless and enduring as the majestic mountains that serve as its backdrop.

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.

Author: Misty M. Beller

Genre: Christian Historical Romance

Release Date: April 9, 2024

In the wild mountains of the Montana Territory, the Coulter ranch is a place of family, second chances…and a hidden fortune.

Naomi Wyatt has finally given up on the man who once promised to love her for the rest of his life—then disappeared with no way to contact him. She’s now a single mother with a beautiful baby girl to provide for, a daughter whose red hair reminds her daily of the man she gave her heart to. She has to move on though, so when Jonah Coulter asks for her hand in marriage, she knows she would be hard-pressed to find a better husband for herself and father for her sweet daughter. He’s a Coulter, after all, and he’s proven to be a good friend during her darkest hours.

But when her first love rides onto the ranch property saying he’d been searching for her for months, her heart is shredded once again. Before she has time to catch her breath though, a new threat appears on the horizon. This time she has far more at stake than her heart, and only a Divine hand can turn this disaster for their good.

From a USA Today bestselling author comes a mountain family saga filled with a second chance romance, love triangles, hidden treasure, and love that heals wounded hearts.

Storytelling vs. Historical Authenticity?

I’ve been a fan of historical fiction for as long as I can remember, all the way back to the Mandie books by Lois Gladys Leppard and the Sadie Rose books by Hilda Stahl. Does anyone remember those series?

When I started thinking about my first novel, there was no doubt it would be a Christian Historical Romance set in the west. By my second book in, I had narrowed my focus to frontier life in the Rockies. My happy place!

It can be challenging to write about a time I haven’t experienced and cultures that don’t exist in the same form anymore. I love reading first-hand accounts to help me bring a particular time period to life. I often visit historic forts and talk with those who have studied the time period and setting in greater depth.

Three years ago, My family and I set out on a 28-day epic road trip to tour many of the state and national parks across the country. We spent about half of our time in Wyoming and Montana, exploring Yellowstone and Glacier, and tour historic and ghost towns. We spent more than one night tent camping in primitive camping!

These experiences definitely make it easy for me to slip into that world as I write. The characters come alive in my mind, and I see the story like a movie in my head. Writing Earning the Mountain Man’s Trust was especially fun to write, as we return to the Coulter Ranch. I fell in love with not just Naomi and Eric, but also sweet little Mary Ellen, their one-year-old daughter who Eric meets for the first time in this book.

I pray the story comes to life for readers as much as it has for me! J

Blessings!

Misty
