NOTE: The Outlaw’s Bride is a rewrite of The Stagecoach Bride that I originally wrote with Stephannie Beman.
The Outlaw’s Bride (Book 1)
Lillian Christian had a simple plan…
All she had to do was sneak out of Virginia before her brother forced her to marry a man in order to get money. She was nothing but a commodity for her brother to sell, and she wasn’t going to have any part in it. So she answered Charles’ mail-order bride ad and headed for an untamed land where she could take on a whole new identity.
But plans don’t always go as expected…
On her way to marry her intended, a group of masked outlaws descend upon the stagecoach. And they are looking specifically for her.
Mic has a plan of his own…
The last thing Mic Gray wants to do is scare Lillian, but kidnapping her is the only way to stop her from marrying Charles. Mic’s face might be on the Wanted posters, but Charles is the real criminal in town. Only Mic’s lack of money and influence prevents him from proving it. The only way to keep Lillian safe is to become her husband.
All he has to do is convince her he’s worth marrying.
Can he get her to go with his plan?
The Rancher’s Bride (Book 2)
One morning, Thayne Jackson finds a young woman disguised as a boy hiding in his barn with toddler in her arms. Upon realizing she’s injured, he takes it upon himself to let her stay with him while she heals. She won’t tell him where she came from or what happened to her, but he’s determined to keep her safe. The Wyoming territory is a dangerous one. He’d never forgive himself if something bad happened to her or the boy.
Abigail (Abby) Gray learned early in life that you keep your secrets. Don’t tell anyone anything unless you absolutely have to. This is good protection for you and for them. The last thing she wants is to stay with Thayne and his orphaned niece, but she doesn’t have any choice when she’s too injured to leave. She’s just going to have to bide her time. Until then, she’s determined not to get attached to Thayne, no matter how sweet or handsome he is.
The Fugitive’s Bride (Book 3)
Ever since Wade Gray lost his ranch and his son, he’s had one mission: get both of them back. After a year, he has his son. Now it’s time to get the ranch. With all his careful planning, he realizes he might not make it back. He’s up against a ruthless enemy who’ll kill anyone who gets in his way.
In order to secure his son’s future, he rushes to marry Millie Washington, the woman he rescued on the same night he and his family got his son back. Love doesn’t factor into the equation. Love didn’t factor into his first marriage, either. He married his first wife to rescue her from a life of prostitution and abuse, and the arrangement never led to love. So to him, marriage is a logical decision based on what can benefit both people. In this case, he can offer Millie a place to live, and she’ll be the mother to his son. It’s as simple as that.
But marriage to Millie isn’t like what he had with his first wife. Millie isn’t weighed down by a harsh past. She has an innocent way of looking at the world that becomes a welcome relief after all he’s been through. In the rugged Wyoming Territory, she’s the only pleasant thing that exists.
And this poses a very difficult proposition for him. Feelings get in the way of doing what’s necessary. Will he be forced to choose between the demand for justice and the longing for meaningful connection with another person?
