Mail-Order Brides of the Southwest series, Book 1
Stella McCord wants to be accepted and loved for who she is now, not for the rambunctious child she once was and believes marrying as a mail-order bride will bring a new beginning. But when she arrives in the small, desert town, she’s greeted by a dilapidated hotel and its distrustful owner—her soon-to-be husband.
Travis Stone hopes to escape his lawless past when he wins a rundown hotel and takes a mail-order bride to help him. But instead of acquiring the hotel manager he wanted, his new bride has other plans for their marriage, and Travis finds himself fighting against his own heart.
