The Rejected Groom is Now Available!

I’m happy to announce that Tony Larson’s book is finally here!

The Rejected Groom Ebook Cover

This is Book 2 in the Misled Mail Order Brides. (Book 1 is The Price Price, featuring Sep from Shotgun Groom. Book 3 will be The Perfect Wife, featuring Mark Larson. I’d like to do a Book 4 for Annabelle Larson. The title of that is to be determined.)

Here’s the Description:

Anthony (Tony) Larson and his twin brother, Mark, have been asked to marry one of the two unfortunate women who are in need of a husband. One woman is Velma Murdoch and the other is Natalie Harper.

Tony falls in love with Velma as soon as he meets her, and he’s excited when Mark tells him she’s chosen him to marry. What he doesn’t realize until he marries Velma is that she thought she was marrying Mark. But Mark tricked both of them into marrying each other so he could be with Natalie. While he’s upset with Mark for deceiving him, he’s even more upset to find out Velma had wanted to marry Mark instead of him.

Velma is just as upset with Mark as Tony is. A marriage to Tony isn’t going to work out well at all. He’s a farmer who lives in a sod house, and she doesn’t know the first thing about housework or cooking. She was much more suited for Mark who owned a business. Just how are two people who are a bad match going to find common ground? She can’t cook anything right, she’s scared of bugs and snakes, and there’s no way she can make clothes. She was brought up to help her future husband entertain guests at dinner parties, not help out on a farm.

Can a man who feels rejected and a woman who doesn’t feel competent on a farm find something as wonderful as love?

    Hi Ruth Ann! I love your books. I haven’t had a chance to read all of the Larson books but I’m trying. Can you share which story is Richard and Amanda Larson? Thanks so much 🙂 I really loved “The Rejected Groom”. It’s rare to read a story where the couple live in a sod house. I can’t wait to read “The Perfect Wife”. It sounds just as good. I can’t wait to read how Mark redeems himself.

    • Thank you! I’m glad you enjoy the Larsons! They’re my favorite family to write about. At the end of the summer, I took a tour of a Pioneer village, and they mentioned a lot of things about the cellar where they kept food and how scary it would be for a little kid getting something for their grandmother. It inspired me to go with a sod house to go with the cellar. 🙂 I can see why someone wouldn’t like going into a cellar. Those things were creepy.

      To answer your question, Richard and Amanda’s story is called Wagon Trail Bride.
