Brides of destiny : Callie's cowboy by Karen Leabo( )

3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Under the Texas moon, Karen Leabo explores the deep longings that lead to romance in a poignant tale of young love and faraway memories, tender promises and revealing truths. His soul was at home in the West'whether riding a bull at a rodeo or working the family ranch but his heart belonged to her. Though Sam Sanger had always planned on sharing his life with Callie Calloway, he understood, even in high school, that loving this woman might mean letting her go. He lost her when she chose college, refusing to walk a day in his boots. It was just a carnival fortuneteller's silly prediction that Callie was destined to marry Sam. Still, Callie pulled away, afraid of sacrificing her own dreams. Ten years later, having become the editor of the local newspaper, she's finally ready to wonder: Was she wrong about Sam when tragedy strikes, Callie and Sam are thrown together again, alarmed by the force of a first love that still burns with hurt feelings and unrequited desire. Only now, Callie will have to see if she's brave enough to make her own destiny.
