“Masterful storyteller”* Jodi Thomas brings you the story of unlikely love between two very different people.
AVAILABLE DIGITALLY FOR THE FIRST TIME
Hired gun Clint Matthews can’t think of anything worse than spending a night protecting his boss at Miss Peach’s annual Valentine’s Day dance. Used to keeping his distance, Clint isn’t about to be social—until Miss Peach forces him into being some young spinster’s escort for the evening.
Headstrong Amanda Hamilton has gotten used to being the least popular girl in town, but that doesn’t mean she isn’t a little hurt when her paper heart is the last one picked—and a gunslinger winds up as her Valentine. Amanda has no more interest in socializing than Clint does, but after one unexpected kiss, she starts to rethink her dedication to spinsterhood...
Includes a preview of Jodi Thomas’s latest Harmony novel, CAN’T STOP BELIEVING.
Heart on His Sleeve previously appeared in LOVING HEARTS anthology, February 1993.
