About the Book

When Bonnie Wurthington’s Step brother gambles her away to “Lord Blackstorm” and she is sent to his estate to work the fields, Bonnie is confussed and worried. But she believes that this is part of God’s plan for her life so she agrees to go.

When Lord Rutherford discovers that the Bonnie he won in a late night card game is a lovely and Godly woman and not the “Mule” he thought he had won, he realizes that to salvage her reputation he must marry her, but he knows that he isn’t the man of God that Bonnie needs.

Will love help them both to find out what God’s plan for their lives are?



What a beautiful story of love and forgiveness. Bonnie Wurthington has loved the Lord and tried her best to live a Christian life, truly letting God’s love shine through her in everything she does. Her step-brother, Con, is so jealous of her that from the time she came to live in his father’s home at the age of five, he has tormented her and called her ugly. Lord Garett Rutherford has earned the name Lord Black Storm and he is known for his gambling and winnings. Con’s cockiness and believing he can beat Garett in a card game places Bonnie in the pot, along with everything else he has already gambled away, and loses. What a shock later on when Garett finds out that Bonnie is a woman and not a mule he has sent to the family country estate. The plot was captivating and the dialogue was heartwarming. Sometimes we plant the seeds of God’s Salvation and they are reaped later on. Bonnie never lost faith that God had a special plan for her life.
