About Elaine: Elaine Manders writes wholesome, Christian romance and suspense about the bold, capable women of history and the strong, dependable men who love them. Her stories twist and turn and surprise, and are told by characters who aren’t afraid to show their love for God and each other. She lives in Central Georgia with her fur baby and enjoys pending time with her friends and family.

About Escaped:
Juliette Kendal has vowed to protect her siblings from their abusive step-father after their mother’s death. When she finds him attacking her younger sister, Annie, she accidentally kills him. With no way to prove her innocence she fears her brothers and sister will be taken to an orphanage if she’s arrested.

Jake Gresham is known as a fun-loving, careless cowboy, as good at finding trouble as he is roping cattle. So far, he’s managed to avoid God and decent women. But on a scouting trip for his boss, he steps in a bear trap in a South Georgia swamp. Facing certain death changes his outlook, and Juliette, who fights tenaciously to save his life, changes his opinion of women.

When Jake asks Juliette to marry him and take her family with him when he returns to his Nebraska ranch, she sees it as an escape from the secret buried in her backyard.
