Be careful what you wish for; you just might get it.
Violet did. After her husband died, she swore off lackluster men and a dull life. She wished for someone to put a sparkle in her eyes and excitement in her life, like an old love did year ago in Blue Ridge, Texas. Little did she realize that when she made the wish it was already in the process of being granted.
Orrin Wilde did. He wished he'd never chose the lure of the gold mines over the love of his life. But his sins are coming back, screaming for payment. Four bandits follow Orrin for days and finally catch up with him outside of Guthrie, in Oklahoma Indian Territory. He tries to outrun them, when they wing him. He rides down Main Street and, unable to find a doctor, he crawls up on the porch of the last house in town. Violet hears the thud when he falls and finds him bleeding and unconscious on her front porch.
If Violet had been doing the shooting, Orrin would be graveyard-dead. Eight years before, he ruined her reputation; now, he was ruining it again. Orrin still loves Violet, but after the trouble down in Texas she refuses to trust him.
Suddenly they wonder why they ever made such crazy wishes after all. Will they ever find forgiveness in their hearts for past mistakes and go on to a love-filled future?

Carolyn Brown is delighted to be publishing another Avalon Historical Romance; this one also set in Dodsworth, just after the famous Oklahoma land rush. In addition to writing, she is an avid reader and loves to travel.
Violet's Wish is her eighth novel for Avalon.From Booklist:
After he left her standing at the altar eight years ago in Blue Ridge, Texas, Violet McDonald never wanted to see Orrin Wilde again. Now after a dull marriage has left Violet a widow ready for a bit of excitement, who should turn back up in her life but Orrin? While traveling to Texas from the California gold fields, Orrin is ambushed by four desperados but manages to escape to Dodsworth, Oklahoma, where in a quirky twist of fate he ends up on the front porch of Violet's house. Violet certainly cannot turn down a man who has just been shot, so she agrees to nurse Orrin back to health, vowing all the while that she will not give him a second shot at ruining her life! Two independent, stubborn people give love another chance in Brown's second historical romance, which not only features appearances by characters from her first book, Emma's Folly [BKL F 15 02], but also the same charming small-town setting.
