Since I gave a lot of detail into what each book is about in last month’s blog post, I won’t go into all of that in this one. You can read that post at this link if you missed it.

The Imperfect Husband is now on pre-order!

This is the last book in the Misled Mail Order Brides Series. (I’ll list all of the books below.)

  • The Bride Price (Book 1) – Sep Wilson’s romance (He was Joel Larson’s brother-in-law in Shotgun Groom, and I do give an update for Joel and his kids in this book.)
  • The Rejected Groom (Book 2) – Tony Larson’s romance
  • The Perfect Wife (Book 3) – Mark Larson’s romance
  • The Imperfect Husband (Book 4) – Annabelle Larson’s romance

This does wrap up the conflict between Tony and Mark that was started in The Rejected Groom. So for those who’ve been waiting for this, it finally happens!

This is a romantic comedy, and (in my opinion) it’s the strongest book in the entire series. I really enjoyed this one.

You can find it here for pre-order:

Shane’s Deal (Montana Collection: Book 4) is with my editing team

This is the last book in the Montana Collection. This is due out in April. It’s not going to be on pre-order because it’ll be going to my publisher. I don’t know the release date yet.

Kidnapping the Viscount (Marriage by Fate: Book 5) is done and ready for my editing team

This is the last book in the Marriage by Fate Series. I’m just waiting to sent this one out for them to look over. This will be due out in May.

I’ve begun working on four new books!

The Wedding Pact (Marriage by Fairytale: Book 3) is almost 20,000 words in

I’m hoping to have the first draft of this done by May 15 so I can have it ready for my editing team by June 1. On average, I write books between 60,000 to 70,000 words long. (So this gives you an idea of how far I’m into writing this.) I’m currently at the point where the heroine has escaped her controlling guardian who had intended to make him marry her. She has just convinced our hero to marry her. I’m not really sure where things are going from here, but it’ll be fun to find out.

This is loosely based off of Little Red Riding Hood. I have taken some liberties with this story. For example, I have the heroine (our “little red riding hood”), but instead of her finding the villain (Lord Wolfe) in a remote little home in a forest, he finds her in disguise in the bed. I have certain things I kept from the original tale, but I have changed A LOT of it to make it a different story.

I don’t want any books in this series to be a repeat of stuff we’ve all heard before. I want to create something fresh and new. Speaking of this series, I am also working on another book in this series…

Fairest of Them All (Marriage by Fairytale: Book 4) is also almost 20,000 words in

This is loosely based off of Snow White. I have taken a lot of liberties with this story as well. For example, the heroine is the step-mother. The hero is alive. The step-daughter is also the hero’s step-daughter. The heroine has to chaperone the step-daughter for her first Season in hopes of getting the step-daughter a husband. There is a villain in this book, but it’s none of the people I just mentioned. Now, elements from Snow White do come into play in this book. One is a mirror. Another is beauty vs. darkness. And the step-mother and step-daughter don’t get along right away. I would say more, but I don’t want to spoil the book.

Nelly’s Mail Order Husband (Husbands for the Larson Sisters: Book 1) is also almost 20,000 words in

This is the start of another series for the Larson family. In this case, we’re going through Tom and Jessica’s daughters. This is a romantic comedy in which a destitute hero is expecting to marry a woman who is wealthy. Nelly might own a homestead, but she’s nowhere near the wealthy landowner he expected, so he’s going to have to learn how to manage life on a farm. Fun times are ahead for this couple!

Forever Yours (Dave and Mary’s third romance) are about 10,000 words in


I’m still figuring this one out, but so far, Dave has suffered a broken leg from falling off a horse. I’m not really sure what will happen. This is one of those books where I went in thinking it would go a certain way, but it’s becoming clear the characters have other things in mind. I’ll keep writing and find out where they want to take the story.
