Right to Bragg - Tanya Hanson

Welcome back for Day 4 at Hearts Crossing Ranch with Tanya Hanson. Today we're gonna meet Bragg. I can't wait!

Morning, Tanya, ready to saddle up? I figured another day on the ranch and maybe we could do some riding! Or we could just wander around and check out some more cowboys...

Right to Bragg

Disowned by her family, Tiffany Vickers faces a lonely Christmas and takes great comfort in the baby boy in her care. Her faith is in tatters, and she guards her heart against the baby's uncle, handsome cowboy, Bragg Martin. It's the season for forgiveness, and while Bragg longs to open his heart and family to the lovely nanny, he doesn't understand her interest in his arch enemy. Saving a man's life and saving Tiffany's faith bring the couple together...and home to Hearts Crossing Ranch.


Comforting the precious-smelling bundle against her shoulder, Tiffany breathed deep of the warm air inside the house and hurried back to the living room. Sure beat the raging weather outside. When she beheld Bragg Martin, sleep-rumpled and drowsy-eyed, her heart tumbled to her toes for its second time in as many minutes. He might as well hire out as a cover model. 

But he was way off limits. She’d only been in Mountain Cove a short time, but she already understood how highly-regarded his family was, how strong in faith and conviction. They sure didn’t need somebody like her to drag them down. 

Now her heart thudded with pangs of grief and lost cause. Back in Lakewood, Paul hadn’t even answered the door. She’d dumped the presents on the porch and headed straight back to Mountain Cove in a torrent of sobs. 

Three hundred miles round trip. Ah well. Tonight in her pillow she could continue to cry after Matty slept tight. Right now, she had a job to do. 

Here inside the tidy, warm townhouse, the men were doing some kind of macho showdown, she could tell. Well, her years as a paralegal had taught her how to diffuse angry people. And tending childlike males such as her brother was something she’d gotten very good at. 

Well, other than today. Likely the snowstorm would hit the Denver area with this same amount of muscle and smother the presents with a dozen icy inches. Eyelashes fluttered away her tears. 

Enough of that. She had a baby to tend.


Well, Ms. Hanson definitely has the right to brag. This is one great story in the line of several wonderful stories. I truly enjoyed the characters as well as the awesome scenery she once again brings out in her stories.

You'll just love Tiffany. She has a little bit of all of us in her, I think...a bit insecure, a bit underestimating of her own strengths, and a bit shy. And Bragg, well, he's once again, the perfect cowboy in this story, standing strong in his beliefs, and in his fairness to all - even those who have hurt him. God's light truly shines through him in his actions as well as his words. And Tiffany learns who God really is, and that He cares for us all.

Once again, great story! I loved it!
