Clean American mail order bride historical Western romance novelette.
Prescott, Arizona 1887 and love is starting to blossom in this Mountain Oasis.
Meet Sarah, she came from a wealthy family however her father had succumbed to injuries during a Civil War battle while her mother ran away and left her penniless in the care of her uncle.
Her uncle was a prominent banker in town and provided Sarah with everything she needed, but he engaged with the wrong crowd and eventually ended up in jail, on fraud charges – leaving Sarah alone once again in the world.
And now she has been tutored at Blackthorn Manor to be a properly educated young lady and a potentially good marriage mate. She must leave her newfound close friends from Shreveport and move to the untamed desert mountain lands of Arizona, only to marry a banker! Sarah didn’t know whether she should be glad, or she should cry.
“How can I be married to a man I don’t find attractive, she thought as she caught herself glancing at James when he wasn’t looking. Shouldn’t I find my husband attractive if I am to be in love with him? Her mind wandered back home where she saw many a fine gentleman and she knew that she had gotten her fair share of attention for her beauty. It seemed here that her milky white skin and glistening blond hair weren’t as desired – or as practical.”
“This is a story about tragedy, fear, faith, triumph and true love.”
While this book is part of “19 Brides for 19 Cowboys Mega Boxed Set” with my author friends, it can definitely be read as a standalone book.
