Can a counterfeit bride steal the heart of a suspicious groom?

When Cassidy Cooper’s flighty sister Angela comes to Miss Brookfield’s Academy for Young Ladies and begs Cassie to take her place as a mail order bride, the practical Cassie is scandalized. But before she knows it, Cassie is on a train to Silver Strike, Nevada—on her way to wed a stranger. To her delight, Noah Bridger turns out to be everything her yearning heart has ever desired in a bridegroom. As she thrills to his tender touch, Cassie has no way of knowing that Noah is hiding a dangerous secret of his own.


Scotsman Ian MacKenzie has agreed to masquerade as a wealthy silver mine owner to catch his best friend’s killer, not to lose his heart to the woman he’s supposed to be investigating. But every time he gazes down into his mail order bride’s stormy blue eyes, he has to fight the temptation to taste her soft, pink lips and make her his bride in more than name only. He never suspects the warm, willing woman in his arms is also an imposter.


As they fight the irresistible attraction building between them, Ian and Cassie must decide if a passion built on lies can grow into a love real enough to last a lifetime…

Can you borrow a bride for nine months without her stealing your heart? 

A demure member of the Richmond Ladies Sewing Circle, Faith Collins certainly isn’t the type of lady who would answer an advertisement to bear a stranger’s child.

As they travel west and struggle to guard their wounded hearts, Faith and Reese quickly discover just how easily business can turn to pleasure…and pleasure to love.

 Annie Markum grew up with a bible in one hand, and a disapproving father holding the other. At twenty-two, she dared to dream of a different life and risked everything to become a mail order bride. One year later, she finds herself on a friend's doorstep, penniless, pregnant, and a widow. Her husband was an honorable, church-going man, and she believes her father will allow her to come home. To get back to her father in New York will take money she doesn't have. She's got no choice but to accept work as a cook in a local saloon. Her father would never approve, but Annie is determined to earn enough for safe passage for herself and her beautiful new baby girl.

 

It's never good to lust after another man's wife. Saloon owner, Nick Cartwright, learned that lesson the hard way. He took one look at Annie Markum and fell hard for his friend's mail order bride. A year later, she's back in his life, a widow with a precious daughter to protect. Nick will do anything to convince Annie to give him a chance, except the one thing she demands...sell his saloon. Annie has lived a sheltered life, and her innocence is one thing Nick wants to preserve. Life is rough, and Annie is soft, sweet, and all too kissable. He wants to keep her and her little girl, but Annie is determined to raise her daughter as far away from the saloon as possible.

 

Annie fights her growing attraction to Nick. She might even be in love with him, but with Nick comes the saloon. And the whiskey. The gambling and the women. One of them will have to sacrifice everything to make a relationship work, and neither wants to budge. When it turns out that Annie's dead husband actually left her a fortune, her future seems set. Until someone decides to take both Nick and her new found freedom away from her. And Annie realizes that sometimes, in life and in love, you have to fight dirty to win.

What’s a cynical earl to do when tempted to rescue a lady from a real-life prince?

After being auctioned off by her own mother to the crown prince of Austria, Cristina Fairfax is clearly a damsel in need of a hero. Her fate seems sealed—until she finds herself kidnapped by a most unlikely savior.


Lord Blake Ashford, the earl of Lawrence, stopped believing in fairy tales a long time ago. Yet he can’t stop himself from rushing to Cristina’s rescue. Blake clashes with the headstrong beauty—who claims to want nothing more than her freedom—even as he strives to fight his growing desire for her.


Their dangerous, yet irresistible, dance sweeps Blake and Cristina from the drawing rooms of London to the sumptuous ballrooms of Vienna. As a scandalous secret from the past threatens to tear them apart, they must decide if their love will last for just one passionate night or for…always.

A destructive secret. An honorable man. A plea for forgiveness.

Jane Keith has known little kindness in her life. When she finds herself abandoned and starving after venturing to Bear Grass Springs, the warm welcome by the MacKinnons surprises her. Although she is now an integral part of the bakery staff, with no concern for room and board, she frets about her younger brother, Duncan. He’s reckless and wild, and she fears what will occur if he continues to frequent the saloons and gambling tables. And she is terrified of what will happen should Duncan reveal her long-held secret.

Ben Metcalf is accustomed to living alone. He works hard as Ewan MacKinnon’s foreman, but he tires of being the only single adult at their family gatherings. After Jane Keith’s arrival in Bear Grass Springs, he is drawn to her devotion to family, her inherent kindness, and the intelligence she attempts to hide. Frustrated by Jane hiding behind work and her concern for her brother, Ben worries Jane will never return his feelings. 

When Ben steals Jane away in the middle of the night to save her from her brother’s unscrupulous plan, Jane’s relationship with her brother is irrevocably altered. Suddenly, she is a married woman. Soon, Jane must decide who deserves her loyalty: her husband or her brother.

When her fiercely held secret is revealed, will Ben look past anger and his sense of betrayal to focus on his love for Jane or will he allow a secret to destroy what he most cherishes?
