A Bride for Gideon: The Proxy Brides Book 16 by Caroline Clemmons

A Bride for Gideon:  The Proxy Brides Book 16
by Caroline Clemmons

Book Blurb:

Keira desperately wants to belong somewhere

Gideon is haunted by a secret too horrible to share

Fate conspires against them…

Keira Cameron came to Boston from Scotland after the death of her parents. She wanted a job, a husband, and eventually a family. She feels rejected because she’s too tall, too foreign, and too pretty for a wife to want her working near her husband. Were her expectations unreasonable? Her cousin convinces her to enter a proxy marriage to his friend, Gideon Ross, who lives in Montana Territory. Out of options, she agrees and hopes her goals will be realized.

Gideon Ross is a large man at five inches over six feet. His business is a smithy and gun repair shop. The war left him with a terrible scar on his face. He wears a beard to try to conceal the scar but still hears people whisper he’s a monster and a giant. Do they think he has no feelings? He’s haunted by the war and has terrible nightmares. Reluctantly, he agrees to wed Keira by proxy.

Outside forces work against the couple. Keira and Gideon must find the key to the attack on their lives. Can they defeat the enemy before they’re too late?

I have always been fascinated by Scotland and Ireland.  On my father's side, I am English and Scots-Irish, while on my mother's side I am German and Austrian.  Hero is English and Scots-Irish on his mother's side, and English and we don't know what is on his father's side.  His father's name is common and hard to trace, so we don't know as much about his line.  Imagine coming over on a little, crowded ship and arriving after spending weeks at sea, only to be met with hostility by those already here.

A Bride for Dalton: The Proxy Brides Book 25 by Caroline Clemmons

A Bride for Dalton:  The Proxy Brides Book 25
by Caroline Clemmons

Book Blurb:

Rebecca wants a husband but not the man her stepbrother insists she wed. To escape his threats she turns to a family friend for help. Reverend McClain suggests she enter a proxy marriage to his only living relative, a nephew who ranches in Montana. Out of options, she agrees. Until she arrives in Sweet Springs, she has no idea the telegram with instructions to her supposed groom has not been delivered. Where does that leave her?

Dalton is working with dangerous men to accomplish his goal. The last thing he needs at this time is a wife in the way. He is a gentleman and sees no other solution than to complete the vows. How is he going to keep her out of harm’s way while he completes this job?

Rebecca and Dalton embark on married life in unusual circumstances. Can love blossom in tumultuous times?

Notes on Proxy Brides:

Can you imagine marrying someone sight unseen?  While that is common in many cultures, it was driven by desperation in most cases here.  In the East, a generation of young men had been killed in the Civil War.  There were more women than marriageable men.  In the West, there were many more men than marriageable women.  Mail-order brides became common.  The advantage of a proxy marriage was that the woman was considered married and could travel alone without damage to her reputation.  The disadvantage is that if the man and woman did not suited when they met, they were stuck with one another.  I have read diaries and other writings by mail-order brides and sometimes it was horrible, but it mostly worked out.  I suppose that is true of most marriages.  In January, Hero and I will have been married 60 years.  I hope you enjoy A Bride for Dalton.

Angel for Christmas by Caroline Clemmons

Angel for Christmas
by Caroline Clemmons

Since it is the holidays, I chose to spotlight one of my lesser-known Christmas books.  I hope you enjoy it as you celebrate the holidays with your friends and family.

Book Blurb:

When a dot com billionaire crashes his sports car into a tree, he wakes up in Heaven facing angels Gabriel and Michael. He’s given a chance to redeem his carefree ways by helping an orphanage avoid foreclosure and regain a sound financial picture by midnight on Christmas Eve—or else. To do so, he is sent back to Earth as orphanage janitor, Jacob Porter.

After her father died four months ago, child psychologist Suzi Stephens was shocked to learn Serenity Springs Children’s Home and Elementary School faced foreclosure unless she met a balloon note due January 1. She can’t understand why her late father broke the trust her grandfather had carefully constructed to protect the home. She is afraid the annual gala won’t raise enough money to pay the note much less a year’s operating funds. Trying to do her job plus step into her late father’s shoes has stretched her to her limits.

She’s suspicious of the handsome new janitor, who appears more like he’d be at home as a CEO. Could he be a spy for the developer who covets the children’s home property? Suzi overcomes her distrust enough to allow Jacob’s help raising funds. Working together, their attraction escalates but Jacob has nothing to offer the beautiful redhead. He is scheduled for earthly removal at midnight on December 24.

After eating Scar's delicious dinner, we dispersed to separate rooms. The tension at the table was suffocating. I tried getting quick glimpses of Scar, but Skye would avert my attention by grabbing my thigh or making small talk.   

When it was time to go to bed, I couldn't fall asleep, and it wasn't because Skye was lying next to me in lace panties. I wanted to spend more time with Scar and check in on her. With my hand underneath my head, I saw a flicker of light from the corner of my eye. I heard faint footsteps walking across the hardwood floor.   

I glanced down at Skye's sleeping form and gingerly slid away from her. I grabbed my shirt, pulled up my jeans, and quietly walked out the door.   

I padded down the hall until I reached the kitchen. An easy smile formed on my face as I took in Scar in the kitchen, pouring herself a glass of water and quietly singing "Alone" by Heart. She spun around too quickly, and her eyes widened when she saw me.  

I chuckled and held my hands up. "Sorry, I didn't mean to scare you."   

She walked over to the refrigerator and pulled out a tray of fresh fruits. Using her hip, she closed the fridge door and placed the tray on the table. "Couldn't sleep?" she asked, reaching for a strawberry and bringing it to her lips before biting into it.  

I cleared my throat. "Yeah. Is that why you’re up?"   

She nodded and grabbed another strawberry. My eyes involuntarily moved to her pink lips. "Do you want one?" she asked, holding a strawberry out.   

I gave her a small smile. “No thanks, Tinkerbelle.”   

She blushed at the nickname. I headed toward the cupboard behind her and pulled out a jar of peanut butter. Her face lit up when she saw what I was doing. I grabbed a few strawberries and dipped them in the jar. I set a few in front of her.   

Strawberries dipped in peanut butter were her favorite snack as a kid. At first, I thought it was gross, but she convinced me it tasted like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. After one taste, I was addicted.   

"It's your fault I love these damn things," I teased, making her blush even more. She grabbed one and took a bite. A moan escaped her pretty mouth, making my dick twitch.  I shoved a cracker in my mouth to drown out the sound of her breathy moans before I did something that would put me in jail.   

"Oh, God. This is so good."  

I choked on my snack when I saw a picture of her making those sounds as her body writhed underneath me.   

"Are you okay?" Scar patted my back with a wary look.   

I nodded and stepped around her, ashamed of my thoughts, and grabbed a bottle of water from the fridge.   

I was going to hell.   

"Ricky?" Scar's soft voice sent goosebumps across my skin. She closed the distance between us and handed me a napkin.   

"Thanks," I murmured, wiping my mouth.   

She was like my sister, as Seth would remind me.   

She's too young.  

She's your best friend's little sister.   

I kept repeating these words to convince myself that it was fucked up. I needed to fight the urges that I shouldn't be having for Scar.   

My Tinkerbelle.   

It was so fucking wrong.   

But when she looked at me with those big golden eyes, I couldn’t help but graze the corner of her mouth with my thumb. Her breath hitched, and her lashes fluttered and her eyes closed briefly, absorbing the moment between us.   

"You got a little something..." I whispered, watching my finger trail over her bottom lip, a pinkish shade coming to her cheeks.   

"Mav, what are you...?"  

My hand quickly fell to my side at the sound of Skylar's voice. I looked up to see Skylar shooting daggers at us and the compromising position we were in. I looked down to see how close our bodies were and swallowed. Scar must have noticed it, too, because she stepped back and mumbled something. She danced around Skylar, but not until she got in a dig.  

 I was born and raised in Buffalo, New York until our family moved around to four different states. Currently reside in Ohio with my husband Steven of fourteen years. No children or fur babies. I have three siblings: a sister who will go to the earth and moon for you, an older brother who passed away unexpectedly in 2019, and a younger brother who loves with his whole heart. I am also a proud auntie to a teenage niece and nephew.

My dream was to become a writer someday, but real life got in the way. I started writing in my journal at an early age. Over time, the words in the pages formed into poetry. Reading and writing is my way of “escaping reality.” Real life sucks sometimes and getting lost in a good book helps make it less sucky.

My favorite genre is romance which includes young adult, contemporary, sports, and fantasy.

​When I am not reading or writing, you will find me in the kitchen baking a crap load of sugar that I do not need or binging on the next series on Netflix, movies (huge superhero fanatic) reading my Kindle at all hours of the night, or watching Tik Tok videos. Thank you for giving my books a chance. I hope you will fall in love with the characters as much as I had fun writing them.

Stone Mountain Christmas by Caroline Clemmons

Stone Mountain Christmas
by Caroline Clemmons

Feeling in the Christmas spirit?  Want to read a sweet story of good over evil at Christmas?  Try this one:

Book Blurb:

Christmas has been Celia Dubois’s favorite time of year as long as she can remember. When she moves back with her parents a year after the death of her husband, the young widow is appalled at the town’s lack of Christmas spirit. Two months earlier, banditos had burned the church and crushed the townspeople. Celia vows to return holiday joy to the town. Perhaps doing so might help mend her aching heart. Will Celia’s plan work magic on the town?

Rancher Eduardo Montoya knows Celia is the woman for him. She enchants him with her winning smile and vivacious nature. When her father warns Eduardo away from Celia, Eduardo is both angry and frustrated. After he stops a robbery in the mercantile, will Celia’s parents change their minds about him? Can handsome Eduardo heal Celia’s sorrow?


Radford Crossing, Texas, November 1874 

Eduardo Montoya focused on the beautiful redhead who swept the walk in front of Sturdivant’s Mercantile across the street. He turned to speak to his friend. “She is a vision, is she not?” 

Micah Stone, his cousin’s husband, asked, “Have you met her or spoken to her?” 

Eduardo’s gaze returned to Celia Dubois. He refused to let anyone shatter his dreams. “See how graceful she is even when performing a menial chore? When we are wed, she will not have to be concerned with such things.” 

Sounding incredulous, Micah said, “I repeat, have you even met or spoken to her?” 

Eduardo had no doubt his friend believed he had taken leave of his senses. He wasn’t so sure he hadn’t, but he placed a hand over his heart. “In good time, my friend. All in good time.”  

Micah clapped him on the shoulder. “Come on, Romeo. We’ve finished our business with Joel. Hope’s expecting us for lunch. You can daydream about the pretty widow on our way home.” 

“I suppose we must go.” He exhaled, reluctantly willing to leave town but unwilling to let anyone derail his plans.  

Micah untied his horse from the hitching rail in front of his brother’s law office and mounted. “Have to say this is the first time I’ve known you to be shy about flirting with a woman.”  

Determination steeled Eduardo’s resolve as he swung onto his gelding. “Never before has a woman been so important to me. You will see. One day, she will become my wife.” 

The two rode toward Micah’s ranch. 

From where she stood on the walk, Celia had known the men watched her. One was the youngest Stone brother. Identifying him was easy because the three Stone men looked so much alike.  

But she hadn’t yet met the handsome man dressed as a Spanish Don. He fit the description she’d been privy to of Eduardo Montoya, one of the wealthiest men in this part of Texas. At least, that’s what she’d overheard while helping in her parents’ store.  

He certainly cut a dashing figure in his black clothes trimmed with silver buttons. She wondered if he was entitled to dress like Spanish nobility or if he merely played a part. The silver on his saddle flashed in the sunlight and she questioned the safety of such a display.  

One thing she’d noticed in her few days in town and working in her father’s mercantile, she heard tidbits of local gossip whether intentionally or not. She wondered what the gossips had to say about her. Probably best she didn’t know. Most people she’d met were friendly but there were a few prunes eager to criticize everyone.  

Wasn’t that true everywhere? Yet she thought an unusual pall lay over Radford Crossing. The town definitely needed a large dose of cheer. As a matter of fact, she wouldn’t mind a measure for herself. With a sigh, she went back inside the store. 

Later that afternoon, ringing of the bell over the door alerted her to a customer and she turned from straightening shelves. 

With a gasp of pleasure, she walked toward the newcomer. “Hello, Rosalyn. How can I help you?” 

Rosalyn Stone glided to greet her wearing a gorgeous blue dress and matching bonnet. They exchanged a hug. 

Her friend smiled. “I came to see how you’re settling in.” 

She fought to keep sorrow from her voice. “Pretty well. I’m sure you remember adjusting to a new environment from when you and Lucy moved here.” 

Rosalyn raised her eyebrows. “Although I left New Orleans when I married, this is very different from there, isn’t it?” 

She forced a smile. “Like another world.” 

“And going from a New Orleans debutante and a member of high society to working in a mercantile—even a nice one like your father’s—requires a giant change in lifestyle.” 

“So far, the transition isn’t as hard as you might think.” Before she could add more, the bell over the door jingled again and two middle-aged women entered. 

Rosalyn leaned near. “Oh, dear, no privacy with those two here. Why don’t you slip over to our house tomorrow and we’ll have tea and a nice chat?” 

“I’d love to. Would three be convenient?” 

“Perfect. I’ll see you then.” With a smile and a wave, Rosalyn departed. 

Taking a deep breath, Celia addressed the customers, “May I help you find something?”

How far will she go to help the Allies? 

The Unlikely Spy

by Sophie Schiller

Genre: Historical Spy Thriller

Casablanca meets Notorious in a Hitchcock-style thriller of espionage, romance, adventure, and intrigue.

During the Great War in 1917, Emma Christensen is a young widow who returns to the islands to reclaim the life and the villa she left behind. When she discovers that her husband has disinherited her in favor of his young heir—an illegitimate son—she soon finds herself penniless. She is approached by Cornelius Smith, a businessman who offers her an alternative: infiltrate the suspicious Hamburg-American Line and spy on its nefarious leader, Julius Luckner, to gain valuable business intelligence for his firm. It doesn’t take long for Emma to realize that both Smith and Luckner are not as they seem. Close to the Allies but even closer to the enemy, Emma bravely engages in missions that could blow her cover at any moment. But with the Panama Canal at stake, how far will she go to help the Allies? A thriller in the style of Hitchcock that will keep you on the edge of your seat.

Emma rolled up the paper and stuck it inside a cigarette. She stuck the cigarette back in its pack and closed it. Then she crept downstairs to deliver it to Maxwell, who received it with a nod. She returned to her room and locked the door behind her, still jittery. She got dressed and fixed her hair and makeup, wondering why Julius Luckner had invited her to the dinner party. Something about it rattled her. He was an enigma. What he did after work was a mystery to everyone. He lived alone in a fine house in Queen’s Quarter and rarely had visitors. He was a bit of a loner, never married, but socially very suave. From what she could tell, he had few close friends aside from Otto Schmidt and the steamer captains. His charm and savoir faire opened many doors for him, but the nature of his business and his past dubious dealings meant that his relationship with the governor was cordial, but not close. He mostly kept a low profile around town. What Emma failed to notice was that, across the square, the man in the brown suit was watching her every move, waiting for her to leave the hotel.

C.D. Britt began her writing journey when her husband told her she needed to use her excessive imagination to write stories as opposed to creating a daily narrative for him. Ever since she penned her first words, life has been a lot more peaceful for him.

She currently resides in Texas where she has yet to adapt to the heat. Her husband thrives in it, so unfortunately, they will not be relocating to colder climates anytime soon.

Their two young children would honestly complain either way.

When she is not in her writing cave (hiding from the sun), she enjoys ignoring the world as much as her children will allow with a good book, music, and vast amounts of coffee (until it’s time for wine).

C.D. Britt is the author of the Reign of Goddesses series, Clan of Shadows series, and the new Blood of Saviors series.
