Crocket Archer is excited about traveling to Piney Woods, Texas for an interview to be the new pastor, but his plans are quickly ruined when he is forced off the train and kidnapped by the outlaw, Silas Robbins, who plans on giving the preacher to his daughter as a birthday present.

Being an outlaw's daughter hasn't been easy on Joanna, especially after her mother passed away. For months, she has been praying for a preacher to be sent to her community's abandoned church. Someone that may help change her father's way of life. Her prayers are answered when her father brings Crocket Archer home.

At first, Crocket wants nothing more than to escape this madness, but he starts to have a change of heart when he lays eyes on the beautiful Joanna, who quickly steals his heart.

I missed out reading the previous book, Short-Straw Bride, by the author, but I plan on looking for the book as I enjoyed reading Stealing the Preacher. I have read dozens of Christian historical romances and the plots of some books tend to be similar, but not with this one as the plot is original. The author has created memorable characters with likeable dialogue and cleverly avoids the typical romantic clich├ęs. Overall, Stealing the Preacher was a wonderful book to read and I recommend it to others.

*I received a free book in exchange for my honest review.
