“A hardworking gentleman of 26 years old, 6 feet, owner of a small cabin who lives off the land desires marriage. Lady must be between 18-25 years, have a loving disposition, and be willing to mother a baby boy. Though comforts will be few, would like a happy marriage.” Mail Order Bride Ad Written by Allen Grover on March 20, 1878
It wasn’t until September that Al’s bride came to the Black Hills of the South Dakota Territory. He expected Hazel McPherson. But he got Sadie Miller.
Before Hazel died in Omaha, she told Sadie to take her place as Al’s mail-order bride. Under ordinary circumstances, Sadie would never pretend to be another woman. But in this case, it was her only chance of escaping the prison that had become her life.
And there was no way she could tell anyone the truth. No. Her secret would stay with her to the grave, especially from the one man she was beginning to love.
It will take some time (not sure how long) before it’s up on iBooks at Apple, Kobo, Flipkart, or other places Smashwords distributes to.
Works In Progress
I’m not as far into this as I had hoped to be. I was hoping to be at chapter 11 by now, but I’m only at chapter 9. It’s not too bad. I might still make my hopeful release month June. *fingers crossed* As long as Patty and Greg don’t make things difficult for me, I should be able to do it. I expect this to be the final book in the Montana Collection. Mitch’s Win was #1 and Boaz’s Wager was #2.
I picked up this one again. I’m hoping to get this out by the end of July. We’ll see how things go. Yes, this is a new cover. I had Stephannie Beman make a new cover for me because I wanted a new look for the Marriage by Arrangement Series I’m now doing.
This is the first book in the series. I do occasionally bring back characters from my other Regency books, but this series focuses on different characters. I’ll talk more about this book as I get closer to publishing it.
I’m hoping to have this out by the end of August. I thought it’d be out sooner, but the rewrites are turning out to be more intense than I thought it would. And I’d rather take it slow and get the very best book possible out there that I can.
This is looking like it’ll be my October release. *fingers crossed* I started writing it and things really took off, so I’m hopeful.
1. Stephannie Beman and I are still working on His Brother’s Wife and The Rancher’s Wife. We have decided to release both books either at the very end of this year or early next. It’s still too soon to tell yet.
2. I think I figured out what is wrong with Wagon Trail Bride. I think I need to start it later in the story. The build up to it is slow. I won’t go back to it for a while though. I need more time to sort through what’s wrong with it.
3. My big writing plan for the fall (right now) is another Regency and another mail-order bride romance. But we’ll see what happens.
Hope everyone has a great May!
