Book Description:

Ashamed of his criminal past, Anthony Trevain is living the solitary life he wants, but when he finds himself raising his orphaned younger sister, he’s forced to take a bride. Marriage to Rebecca is nothing like he thought, each day a struggle as he tries to keep his past a secret and his wife at arms’ length. To provide for his new family, he must accept a job from the one man who could put him back in the criminal life.

To escape the clutches of her society- driven mother, Rebecca Townsend flees Baltimore as a mail-order bride. When she arrives in the mining town of Creede, Colorado, nothing is as she thought it would be. Rebecca falls in love with the stranger she married, but does Anthony love her enough to make their marriage work?

A series of incidents puts Rebecca and Anthony, their family, and friends in grave danger. Will their new family be torn apart before they can come together?

Four historical western romances that will warm your heart.

Prisoners of Love: Cinnamon by USA Today best-selling author, Callie Hutton

In 1877 saloon girl, Cinnamon O’Brien, sits in Dodge City jail with three other women charged with various crimes. Her charges, of course, are totally unfair since she only hit the mayor over the head with the pitcher of beer because he grabbed her lady parts. Now the marshal gives the four women a choice: join up with the wagon train in Fort Dodge and head to Santa Fe as a mail order bride, or when the judge sobers up, he’ll be so ornery he’ll probably sent them to the state prison.

Before they even leave, childhood friend, Jedediah Nelson, newly ordained preacher headed to Santa Fe, and in need of a wife, proposes to Cinnamon. A preacher and a saloon girl? She’s about to give him a wild ride.

The Reluctant Bride by Maxine Douglas

Roseanne “Rose” Duncan, witnesses her employer push his sickly wife down the staircase. Fearing she’ll have to testify against a prominent man in town, she’s given ad for a mail order bride in Dodge City. Believing this is a way for her to escape the possible danger of her employer, she travels to Dodge City and marries under the name of Abigale Johnson.

Logan Granger, is a Pinkerton Detective assigned to Dodge City area as an undercover bartender. When his mail order bride, “Aggie,” steps off the train she doesn’t fit the description of a matronly woman who has agreed to his marriage contract of no emotional attachments. There’s no time to reconsider the preacher is waiting to marry them.

Rose hadn’t expected the handsome man waiting for her to be an undercover bartender with a six shooter on his hip and a badge on his lapel. Logan hadn’t expected his soon to be wife to be young, beautiful, and a runaway murder witness.

Miss Fortune and the Major by Peggy McKenzie

Calamity Fortune was born under a bad luck star. And now, she just set fire to the church at her best friend’s wedding. It’s time to find a new place to call home. Some place she could be herself without judgment. She finds an advertisement in the newspaper that catches her eye. “Widower seeks a wife. Salary included. Platonic relationship guaranteed. Pagosa Springs, Colorado.” Calamity hopes a change in scenery can bring a change in luck. There’s only one way to find out.

Major Lucas Quinn, widower, decorated officer, used to giving orders and getting respect, can’t control his own four children. His sister, Sarah insists it’s his unyielding, arrogant, absolute control over everyone and everything preventing anyone who knows him from agreeing to be his wife. Lucas places an advertisement for a mail order bride and he makes it clear–his new wife must be organized, able to run a disciplined household and well-suited with children. And there would be no room for insubordination.

The Bride’s Deception by Heidi Vanlandingham

Escaping the outlaw who controlled her old life, Alayna Kimbal is determined to forge a new one. She answers a mail-order bride request and shoulders the job of wife and mother, each day hoping her lies and the identity of the man hunting her aren’t discovered.

US Marshal Jerome Riddick has never considered getting married until he inherits his best friend’s three children after she’s murdered. Struggling to care for her children and do his job, he takes a bride — only to find out she’s keeping a huge secret from him. A secret that could get them all killed.
