About the Book

Return to Alpine, Texas, where you’ll meet a spunky new heroine and her heartthrob hero, plus reconnect with a few familiar characters from Myra’s Love Inspired romance Rancher for the Holidays.

For single mom Cara Gallagher, her desk job with a small-town assistance ministry is both a fresh start and a letdown. A lover of the great outdoors and ancient Native American history, she still regrets not completing her doctorate and pursuing an anthropology career. Six years ago, however, those plans were sidelined by an unplanned pregnancy and her boyfriend’s self-serving betrayal.

Wilderness guide Lucas Montero is caught up in another kind of betrayal—a lawsuit filed by an injured client bent on distorting the truth about what really happened. Not only is Lucas’s reputation on the line, but his employers risk losing their business, and he’ll do whatever it takes to keep that from happening.

When Cara and Lucas first meet, romance is the last thing either of them feels ready for. But they don’t stand a chance against Cara’s five-year-old daughter, Zoe, who’d like nothing more than for Mommy to fall in love and be happy again, especially if Lucas could be her new daddy!

A rocky trail is in store as Lucas and Cara learn to forgive, let go of the past, and allow God to guide the way. As they strike out on the path toward happiness, they’ll soon discover that love is always worth the risk.

What readers are saying:

Worth the Risk, by Myra Johnson, is a wonderful story of overcoming with faith! I love and sympathize with the characters in this story. . . . The secondary characters add sparkle . . . lively kindergartener Zoe, friendly Sandra, and kind Rosalinda. Weaving their way toward friendship and new beginnings, Cara and Lucas find their faith a strong support. I especially enjoyed the trail hike to see the pictographs and the visit to Candelaria, Texas. –a reader of the previously published novella version

Worth the Risk features a single mom and a swoon worthy hero wilderness guide. Both have self-confidence issues that keep them from moving forward. I really enjoyed how they help each other grow and heal. –a reader of the previously published novella version
