 When all else fails, try seduction.

Ross Hardt must marry a proper lady to reclaim his inheritance. Among the few remaining prospects is a beautiful, sassy widow who hastantalized him from the day they first met--the same day she slapped his face. 


Susannah Braddock journeyed west on The Bride Train in search of agood father for her young son, but on the lawless frontier few candidates meet her requirements, least of all the arrogant, demanding, unfeeling railroad agent.

 

As Fate—and Ross’s scheming—draws them closer, Susannah glimpses unexpected tenderness beneath his harsh exterior, and she’s tempted by the fiery passion that flares between them. But when a secret comes out that threatens to destroy their budding relationship, passion isn’t enough. Only love can weather the oncoming storm.

E.E. Burke
Maggie has an unexpected suitor—in a red suit. 

A schoolteacher plays matchmaker for the local Santa, who also happens to be her brother’s fiercest competitor. But she’s the only bride he wants…if he can just convince her they would be the perfect match.

Schoolteacher Maggie O’Brien comes home for Christmas on a mission: to gather toys for orphans living on poor farms around Fort Scott. She’s made her list, but there’s no Santa in sight. Not until a local shopkeeper volunteers his services.

Gordon Sumner sets his mind on winning the black-haired Irish beauty, but Maggie’s brother is his fiercest competitor and O’Brien’s loyal sister gives him the cold shoulder. Undaunted, he comes up with a clever plan.

Maggie sees through the fake Santa’s ploy, but with Christmas just around the corner, she’s running out of time to make the holiday happy for needy children. She accepts his help—with a plan of her own. She’ll play matchmaker and find her persistent suitor the perfect bride.

Santa’s Mail-Order Bride is the sequel to Victoria, Bride of Kansas, part of the unprecedented 50-book series, American Mail-Order Brides.

See what reviewers are saying:

“Ms. Burke is one of my go to authors when I want a smile, excitement and a clean read with wonderful humor, filled with lighthearted passion.” ~ Cyn’s Reviews

“Santa’s Mail-Order Bride takes two wayward souls and places them in a whirlwind. Maggie’s loyalty to her brother, while the right thing is most cases, will make or break this young woman’s happiness. While Mr. Sumner at first seems the shady character, his progression in this tale makes known his true self and the lengths that he will go to for the woman he wants are quite the story.”  ~ Kimberly Rocha, Book Obsessed Chicks

The most dangerous man may be the one she hired.

Passion and ambition collide when a woman embroiled in a bitter war between a powerful railroad and rioting settlers hires a bodyguard to protect her from a killer.

For America “Amy” Langford, investing in the Border Tier Railroad isn’t about chasing riches. The savvy businesswoman is after bigger stakes: influence, respect, success her father didn’t live to see.

Rioting settlers and underhanded competitors can’t stop her, but a killer might. When a stranger comes to her rescue, she trusts her instincts and hires him as her bodyguard.

Buck O'Connor has put his violent past behind him, but being a wanted man dictates a life of deceit. So what’s one more lie? He becomes Amy’s protector so he can secretly thwart her railroad’s progress to help his cousin avoid financial ruin. A great scheme—until he falls in love.

While Buck hides his true purpose, Amy lies to herself about her growing feelings for her bodyguard. But the price for deceit is steep, and secrets from the past could destroy their future—if they live long enough to have one.

 Her Bodyguard is part of the series Steam! Romance and Rails, featuring stories from America's golden age of steam railroads.
