Dear Friends, I have two new releases to tempt you (I hope!).

CASSANDRA, is Bride Brigade Book 3, is up for preorder now but goes on sale tomorrow! I’m so excited about this book. Who am I kidding? I’m always excited about a new release. J If you’ve read books 1 and 2, you know that there were no single young women in Tarnation, Texas and men were leaving or threatening to do so. Young widow Lydia Harrison went back East and brought seven young women home to Tarnation. So far, Josephine and Angeline have found their soul mates and married. Each of these women leaves behind unique circumstances. My job is to help each find the perfect husband for her.

Here’s the synopsis for CASSANDRA:

A desperate plan…
A masquerade to achieve a goal…
Lies that create a confusing web…

Cassandra Bradford has the cast off wardrobe to pose as a lady. Her goal is to marry a wealthy man who can provide her young brother with a sound future. Drat the luck! The first man she sees in Tarnation is a dusty cowboy who sends her heart pounding. No, he’s not the one for her. She has a better life in mind.

Samuel Drummond is one of the wealthiest ranchers in that part of the state, but he wants that kept quiet. His first wife married him for his money then left when she became bored with ranch life. He won’t let that happen again. He intends to find a woman who wants him no matter how poor she thinks he is.

When both Cassandra and Sam learn omissions the other has made, there are fireworks between them. They must work through their anger and hurt to achieve happiness.

Another release is WILD WESTERN WOMEN SPRING INTO LOVE. Callie Hutton, Kirsten Osbourne, Merry Farmer, Sylvia McDaniel, and I once again banded together to produce a box set for $ .99. My entry in the set is LONG WAY HOME, so be warned that this has been out as a single novella. However, I hope saying I love this story is not immodest. It was loosely inspired by family history.

Kirsten Osbourne - MAIL ORDER MINX

When Millie's friend, Berta, elopes instead of fulfilling her obligation to be a mail-order bride, she decides to take her friend's place and be the best mail-order bride a man has ever seen. Of course, she can't exactly cook, and she enjoys meddling in other people's lives under the guise of "helping them," but surely her future husband won't mind that.

Connor waits excitedly for his Berta to get off the train in Idaho, knowing that she is the answer to his prayers. She's an excellent cook and a hard worker, just what he needs for his restaurant. He's confused when Millie gets off the train in her place, but he accepts the switch good-naturedly. His bride has married someone else, after all. What could possibly go wrong?


Dodge City, Kansas 1877. Adelaide Markham is one of four female prisoners sitting in Dodge City Jail. The sheriff offers them a choice. Either sit in jail until the circuit judge sobers up enough to hear their cases, or get on the wagon train traveling to Santa Fe as mail-order brides.

A recent widow who just lost her child, adelaide prefers marriage to jail, but wants no part of motherhood. The pain is too great.

Miles Ryan has been threatened by the wagon train master that he and his two recalcitrant daughters will be left behind at Fort Dodge if he doesn't find a wife to control the girls.

Miles takes one look at Adelaide and decides she's for him. Unfortunately, it's not until the deed is done that she learns she is a mother once again.

Caroline Clemmons - LONG WAY HOME

Parmelia Bailey has promised to keep her family safe until the men in her family return from War. That includes bringing her brother's fiancée, Sara Hardeman, and Sarahs mother and sisters to stay at her grandmother's home in town. Mmm, maybe she shouldn't have stolen back her horses from the Yankees, but she could think of no other way to rescue the Hardeman women.

Darrick McDonald waited four years to return to Witherspoon and to Parmelia. Who would have dreamed war would bring him back. He has to protect Parmelia from a renegade who's vowed to make her sorry she turned town his proposal. Darrick prayed he wasn't too late.


Love versus ambition!

Bella Francis is an heiress on the run from a father who wants to marry her to a wealthy young man of his choosing. So, she follows her friend and fellow suffragette to a western town in Texas. But she loves to bake and when she wins a baking contest, pursues starting her own bakery. She finds the perfect space, but the man who owns the building not only sparks her interest but refuses to lease to her.

Luca Ruffini has a buyer for the family bakery and is in the process of selling the building to pursue his own dreams. His father, who doesn't want to sell the building, insists Luca put his plans on hold for six weeks to give Bella a chance to fulfill her passion for baking. Yet, Bella is a temptation he finds himself unable to deny.

In the end, whose dream will be fulfilled or will someone have to concede? Who will give up their dream for love?


For Corva Collier, life as a mail-order bride in the quirky town of Haskell, Wyoming is her last chance for escapes. She longs for a peaceful life away from the darkness of her past where she can create the paintings that are close to her heart and where she hopes she can grow to love her husband.

Franklin Haskell never planned to marry. What woman would want a man who was crippled due to his own arrogance? But when he is offered the chance to help a woman in crisis, he agrees to wed. Corva is so much more than he expected, and when a baseball game gives her the chance to shine, he loses his heart.
