The Accidental Mail Order Bride is Now Available!

It’s finally out!   And yes, I do reveal who killed Lydia in this one. 🙂

I’ve always wanted to do a Beauty and the Beast type of romance, and in this story, I finally got to do it.

Quickly, here’s a list of all the books in the Chance at Love Series:

  • Book 1: The Convenient Mail Order Bride
  • Book 2: The Mistaken Mail Order Bride
  • Book 3: The Accidental Mail Order Bride
  • Book 4: The Bargain Mail Order Bride (This is Carl’s story.  It will be out by January 7!)

Without further ado, here’s the information on The Accidental Mail Order Bride:


Eric Johnson’s real mail order bride shows up later than expected, and she quickly learns he is already married. Now Allie Jones is stuck in a small Colorado town with no way to leave. She must either marry the only suitable bachelor or risk being sold to the saloon’s owner to be one of the soiled doves. Seeing she has no real choice, she agrees to marry the bachelor.

Rumored as being a monster by the people in town, Travis Martin is content to live alone, sheltered in the wooded area of the mountainside. The last thing he expects is a preacher when there’s a knock on the door. With great hesitation, he agrees to the marriage. He can’t confine such a beautiful young lady to the saloon, but he knows the marriage won’t be a happy one for her, not when she could have had someone so much better.

So the best thing he can do is keep his distance and leave her alone. She, however, can’t help but be intrigued by her new husband. Is he the ugly beast the people in town claim, or is there something beautiful worth loving just beneath the surface?

    I’ll be ordering this for my Kindle very soon. I’ve seen most of the “beauty and the beast” themed movies. That fairy tale is one of my favorites. Just started another novella. This one is about Jessie, the Carlson’s youngest daughter (from Roses in the Dark – Mark and Cybelle – The Blue Jay and the Sparrow.) Lately I’ve been concentrating on the children of the heroes and heroines of my earlier books. Kinda following your example. Congratulations on your new publication. Always my inspiration. ❤ 🙂

    • My favorite is Lilac in the Spring which has a “beauty and the beast” theme, just reversed with the hero being handsome and the heroine not so much. That one holds a special place in my heart. 🙂

      The Blue Jay and the Sparrow was a good one, too! I like the older man and younger woman type of stories, too.
