Kent Ashton’s Backstory (Prequel to Catching Kent)
Everyone has their story…
In Falling In Love With Her Husband, Kent Ashton was the villain… Or at least that is how Ann Statesman and Todd Brothers saw him.
But was he really? Why did he really end his courtship with Ann? Was his scandalous behavior with Rebecca Johnson the reason he became engaged to her? And what compelled him to go after Ann after she married Todd and moved to North Dakota?
This novella tells why he did what he did. And it paves the way for the book that will lead to his own happily ever after.
Please note: This is the prequel to Catching Kent. It does not have a “happily ever after” ending. The happily ever after comes in Catching Kent.
This historical western romance follows the novella “Kent Ashton’s Backstory” but can be read as a stand-alone novel. So you don’t have to read “Kent Ashton’s Backstory” to understand what happens in this book.
Kent Ashton has returned to America in search of a new start, a chance to live a quiet and unassuming life. But fate has other plans.
After spending time in Ireland, Kent Ashton has returned to America. It’s his chance at a new start, and he’s determined to go all the way to California–far away from his past and the list of regrets he’s left behind. But while in Omaha, Nebraska, thieves rob him and leave him for dead in the back of an alley. That’s when Dave Larson finds him and brings him home so he can recover. As soon as Kent is better, he plans to continue his journey to California.
But Dave’s daughter, Rose Larson, has other plans for him. She’s bound and determined to make him her husband. Sure, he might protest, claim he’s not the right one for her, that she’s better off with someone else. But she’s not one to give up lightly, and if she has to chase him to get him to the altar, then so be it.
His Convenient Wife
Harriett Larson has been in love with Stan Craftsman for years, but he’s never paid any attention to her. Instead, his focus has always been on her twin sister. So when Stan proposes to Harriett, she knows it’s only because he needs a mother for the little girl he recently adopted.
And while her first reaction is to turn him down, she can’t bring herself to turn her back on an innocent child who needs her. So it is with reluctance she agrees to marry him. But only on one condition. Theirs will never be anything more than a marriage of convenience. She will not be vulnerable to him ever again.
But as soon as Stan marries her, he regrets the deal he made. She’s not the wallflower he thought her to be. In fact, she’s much more appealing than her sister. The problem is, how can he convince her of that so they can turn their marriage of convenience into something much more?

The Mail Order Bride’s Deception
“A hardworking gentleman of 26 years old, 6 feet, owner of a small cabin who lives off the land desires marriage. Lady must be between 18-25 years, have a loving disposition, and be willing to mother a baby boy. Though comforts will be few, would like a happy marriage.” Mail Order Bride Ad Written by Allen Grover on March 20, 1878
It wasn’t until September that Al’s bride came to the Black Hills of the South Dakota Territory. He expected Hazel McPherson. But he got Sadie Miller.
Before Hazel died in Omaha, she told Sadie to take her place as Al’s mail-order bride. Under ordinary circumstances, Sadie would never pretend to be another woman. But in this case, it was her only chance of escaping the prison that had become her life.
And there was no way she could tell anyone the truth. No. Her secret would stay with her to the grave, especially from the one man she was beginning to love.
