About the Book

Esther's Temptation (Thanksgiving Books and Blessings Book 9) by [Dooley, Lena Nelson]
Click to Purchase



Saddle weary, former US Marshal Jac Andrews rides into Denton, Texas and can almost smell his prey. He’d hunted a swindler and his daughter— identical twin daughters if Jac is right—and he feels he finally has caught up with this criminal gang. He is immediately distracted by the lovely redhead, Esther Brians. Feeling like an old maid surrounded by happy couples, Esther is drawn to the intense blue-eyed gaze of an unknown cowboy. But several things cause her to become wary of his intentions—and his spiritual well-being. Has this unsaved lawman captured Esther’s heart or will the Lord deliver her from the temptation of Jac’s presence? What will it take for Jac to win this lovely lady and become her husband?

Character Profile – US Marshal Jac Andrews

He’s been trying to catch a gang of robbers whose leader is a confidence man (What we call a con man today) He’s certain he’s finally caught up with them in Denton, Texas, in 1896. He’s tired of his nomad life and would like to settle down and have a wife and family before it is too late. But he must catch this gang first.

Quote from book (after he first laid eyes on the heroine, his thoughts):

He couldn’t seek a relationship yet. If he found one, or one found him, it would have to be a relationship with no strings attached, at least until his mission was over. He wasn’t ready to settle down, and that girl had strings dangling off her so long they would really hogtie a man.
