Meant to Be Mine
(A Porter Family Novel #2)
by Becky Wade
May 2014 by Bethany House Publishers
Ty Porter has always been irresistible to Celia Park. All through high school—irresistible. When their paths cross again after college—still irresistible. This time, though, Ty seems to feel exactly the same way about Celia. Their whirlwind romance deposits them at a street-corner Las Vegas wedding chapel.
The next morning they wake to a marriage certificate and a dose of cold reality. Celia’s ready to be Ty’s wife, but Ty’s not ready to be her husband. He’s a professional bull rider, he lives on the road, and he’s long planned to settle down with the hometown girl he’s known since childhood.
Five and a half years pass. Celia’s buried her dreams so that she can afford to raise her daughter. Ty’s achieved all of his goals. Or thought he had, until he looks again into the eyes of the woman he couldn’t forget and into the face of the child he never knew he had.
How much will Ty sacrifice to win back Celia’s trust and prove to her that their spontaneous marriage can still become the love of a lifetime?
— I’ve been a huge Becky Wade fan ever since I read My Stubborn Heart. I loved Undeniably Yours and Meant to Be Mine is even better! It’s romance with just the right touch of faith at it’s heart. The characters are spot on and the pacing is fantastic. Typically when I read romance novels I want to hit the heroine over the head with a 2 x 4 before the 5th chapter, but I was right there with Celia every step of the way. (Of course that meant I spent some time wanting to hit the hero over the head with the aforementioned 2 x 4…) It’s Celia’s daughter Addie who’s the real showstopper in this story and her desire for her family to be whole again will tug at your heart. Meant to Be Mine feels like a story about real people. Often a fictional characters struggles feel forced or manufactured, but Celia and Ty’s emotions feel so genuine they practically jump off the page. Becky Wade has officially made it to my ‘”Top Five Inspy Romance Authors” list and I’m sure she’ll make yours as well. I’m hoping we don’t have to wait too long for more about the Porter Family! –Claire
About the Author

Becky and her husband lived overseas in the Caribbean and Australia before settling in Dallas, Texas. It was during her years abroad that Becky’s passion for reading turned into a passion for writing. She published three historical romances for the general market, put her career on hold for many years to care for her kids, and eventually returned to writing sheerly for the love of it. She’s delighted to be penning warm, wry, and heartwarming contemporary romances for the Christian market. Her CBA debut, My Stubborn Heart, was a finalist in both the RITA and INSPY awards.Undeniably Yours kicked off her Texas-set Porter Family series. Her newest contemporary romance, Meant to Be Mine, has just hit shelves!
These days Becky can be found failing but trying to keep up with her housework, sweating at the gym, carting her kids around town, playing tennis, hunched over her computer, eating chocolate, or collapsed on the sofa watching TV with her husband.
