- Lucie: Bride of Tennessee
A bride who needs rescuing. A single dad who’s a bit rough around the edges. Can they see past their own faults to find love?
Overwhelmed with responsibilities after the death of her parents, Lucie Croft accepts a mail-order bride contract. When she and her twelve-year-old brother arrive in Chattanooga, Tennessee, life throws another hitch into her dreams when she learns her groom is dead. Homeless and desperate, she accepts help from a handsome hotel owner.
Sebastian McCord understands what it takes to own and run a successful hotel, but he has no idea how to raise a child as a single father. When pressured by his own mother to accept the role as Lucie’s groom, he skeptically agrees. He truly needs help with his willful six-year-old girl, but will Lucie accept his offer?
Two people overwhelmed with responsibilities. Will they find love and create a family or will life conspire to keep them apart?
Lucie: Bride of Tennessee is the prequel story to the Mail-Order Brides of the Southwest series and also book 16 in American Mail-Order Brides.

I loved the way author has told her touching story of a young woman's trials and hardships. Heidi (I have always loved that name) has mixed in just the right amount of romance and drama into the story.
This well-written romance had a well-defined cast of endearing characters, each with their own personalities and quirks.
