Montana Mail Order Brides Box Set: Books 4 - 6
by Linda Bridey
Jamie Collins doesn’t have much to live for in Walhalla, North Dakota. Her husband passed away two years ago and she has been working as a housekeeper on a ranch. Jamie’s employers are difficult people to work for and she dreams of getting away from them and Cypress. She has a history with men and is ostracized by many of the townspeople. Jamie wants a better life but has no way to make that happen.
Jamie comes across an ad in The Walhalla Press for mail-order-brides. She jumps at the chance to find a good man and secure a happy future. Ever the realist, she knows that the chances of making a love-match are slim, but she’ll settle for a good man who is a good provider. She finds an advertisement from a younger Montana ranch hand that catches her eye and she sets her sights on him. It should be easy to wrap him around her little finger.
Luke Samuels has had a rough couple of years. He’s been jilted by the girl of his dreams and laid off from his employment with a local Dawson County, Montana ranch. His cousin Dean Samuels hires Luke on as a ranch hand. Luke sees how happy Dean and Tessa are together and wants that kind of happiness for himself. Even though he’s painfully gun shy about the opposite sex, he’s willing to take a chance to find a bride who’s a sure thing. Leaving nothing to chance, he enlists the help of his cousin Marcus Samuels to help him write the perfect ad that will entice a willing female to come to Montana.
When they meet, Luke is bowled over by the beauty with the emerald green eyes and auburn hair, but is instantly tongue-tied. Jamie is not sure how they’re going to develop a relationship when he can barely talk to her, but she sets out to seduce the handsome man with the soulful brown eyes and sweet smile. A game of cat and mouse ensues and Jamie finds out that marrying Luke is easy, but capturing his heart is going to be harder than she anticipates.
Lacey Reagan’s father, Amos, is a violent alcoholic who takes out his frustrations on his daughter. Lacey knows it’s only a matter of time until he kills her, so when an opportunity arises to run away, she takes it. After answering a mail-order-bride advertisement out of desperation, a gallant stranger offers her his assistance in escaping her life of fear and misery.
Joe Dwyer, family friend to Luke Samuels and company, receives Lacey’s frantic plea for help, and can’t ignore it. The playboy with a heart of gold provides Lacey with the means to make the trip from North Dakota to Montana, but doesn’t have entirely altruistic motives. In order to gain his inheritance and get rid of his own hated father, Joe needs a wife.
When they meet, neither of them intends for their relationship to be anything other than a business arrangement, but as they get to know each other that begins to change. Tragedy strikes, threatening to break their hearts and destroy the bliss they’ve found with each other. With their future together on the line, Lacey and Joe must decide if they have what it takes to make their marriage one that’s real or keep it just business between them.
Mitch Taylor, the new sheriff in Dawson is looking for a wife. Sammi Jameson is looking for a husband like Mitch. Their relationship begins with a bang, but amid danger and desire, their marriage may fizzle if they can’t overcome broken promises and heartache. Will they last together or fall victim to lost love?
