About the Book
Members of Hanger’s Horsemen, Mark Wallace and Jonah Brooks arrive in Llano County, Texas, to deliver a steed, never expecting they’d deliver a baby as well. Left with an infant to care for, they head to a nearby foundling home, where Mark encounters the woman he’d nearly married a decade ago.
After failing at love, Katherine Palmer dedicated her life to caring for children, teaming up with Eliza Southerland to start Harmony House. From mixed ancestry, illegitimate, and female, Eliza understands the pain of not fitting society’s mold. Yet those are the very attributes that lead her to minister to outcast children. The taciturn Jonah intrigues her with his courage and kindness, but there are secrets behind his eyes–ghosts from wars past and others still being waged.
However, when a handful of urchin children from the area go missing, a pair of Horsemen are exactly what the women need. Working together to find the children, will these two couples find love as well?

In My Opinion
Y’all, Karen Witemeyer treats readers to not one, but two romances in The Heart’s Charge, and what a joy it was to read.
Mark comes face-to-face with Katherine, the woman he almost married years ago, and Jonah meets the headstrong yet intriguing Eliza. But the romance is only part of the experience of this book. From the boxcar boys to those residing at the foundling home, the children in this book will tug at your heartstrings—whether it’s tough and determined Rawley, the quiet yet grateful Abner, or the sweet little Al, the little ones leave a lasting impression.
When Jonah stumbles upon the occurrence of kids going missing, he and Mark consider it their duty to discover who is behind it. Witemeyer’s characteristic humor and banter add balance the heavier moments of mystery, action, and discovering a home and a future.
The Heart’s Charge proves again why Witemeyer is a favorite author for so many historical romance fans.
