Today we're welcoming Hannah Williams, the heroine of Cowboy Protector, Love Inspired Suspense, March 2010 by Margaret Daley.
Wow, you've just had quite an adventure.
1. Tell us a little about yourself and how you came to be in the midst of such suspense.
I fell in love with the wrong man. I discovered he was selling illegal arms and ended up testifying against him. I was then placed in the Witness Protection Program and moved to Montana to start a life with no ties to my past.
2. So, during the book you met Austin Taylor because he interviewed you for a job to care for his injured daughter, Misty. Tell us a bit about him. What was your first impression? When did you know it was love?
I first saw Austin in the bus depot when he came to pick me up for my interview for the job. He towered over most of the people in the station and carried himself as if he could take care of any situation he was put in. It wasn't long before I began to fall in love with him even though I knew I couldn't stay at the ranch for more than a month or so. The way he loved his daughter and grandmother endeared me to him, but mostly when I was with him, I felt safe for the first time in years.
3. What strengths/skills do you have? What is your greatest weakness?
I've learned to survive in a world where it is tough to know who to trust. My greatest weakness was my isolation from people. I missed so much, moving all the time, never getting to know anyone for long.
4. What scares you?
Being caught by Devon Madison, my boyfriend's ruthless brother who had put a contract out on me years ago. But even more, dying alone with no one to care about me.
5. If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
I should have depended on the Lord more through my ordeal, instead of thinking I could do it all by myself.
6. Where are you in your faith at the start of your story?
I'd lost my faith because I'd lost hope I would ever lead a normal life--have the family I always wanted.
7. Where are you in your faith at the end of the story?
I've learned to put my trust in the Lord. I can't do it alone.
8. You've got a scripture at the beginning of the story. Tell us why this scripture is significant.
"God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble." Psalms 46:1
I had to learn that was true and to turn to Him for help in my time of need.
9. If you could be a dessert what would you be and why?
Thank you Margaret for sharing Hannah with us today. This sounds intriquing. Can't wait.
