Loretta: The Desperate Bride: A Historical Western Romance (Brides of Dalton #3)
by Bethany Rose
Loretta Mullins is desperate to marry, but she doesn’t care about falling in love. She’s a schoolteacher with an unruly class who intends on becoming a mail-order bride by fall.
Alec Talbot has just returned home to Dalton, Wyoming, from Europe; he has a five-year old daughter from a woman who was not his wife, a reputation, and enough money to disregard the disapproval of the local pillars of the community. Alec’s mother wants her son to settle down and marry, and since Loretta doesn’t require love as part of the transaction, Mrs. Talbot believes that the schoolteacher would be the ideal wife for her son. Alec is an enigmatic man who finds the prospect of marrying for practical reasons very appealing: Loretta is pretty, intelligent, and attentive to his young daughter.
Is there room for love in a marriage that’s designed for convenience?
