“Mail Order Love” – a short clean western romance series from author Beth Boyden

The Gambler’s Girl

What if your long-distance sweetheart was an up-close disaster?

Ann Forsyth arrives in Texas on a hot summer day. She’s left her troubles far behind, and all she wants is to settle down with Reichard Monroe. He’s handsome, his penmanship is good, and he says he’s everything she’s dreamed of.

But the stories he told and the man she meets have nothing in common.

Ann finds herself relying on strangers and her own wits and character, as she tries to piece together a new life in the west. And when another man catches her eye, she must find her way between duty, self-preservation…

…and hope.

The Minister’s Match

Clara wants nothing more than to start over. Her Aunt Francis and Uncle Lyle have supported her since her parents’ death, but their house is a suffocating environment full of judgment and conflict.

When she begins to correspond with Rev. Holloway, a Texas minister in want of a wife, she knows she’s found her way out. Before long she’s on a train headed West, certain that she can begin a brand new life.

But with her aunt’s angry, condemning voice echoing in her head, Clara finds that it’s not so easy to get a fresh beginning. There are gossipy congregants, well-meaning friends, her sweet new husband, and her own ideals to consider, all pulling her in different directions. She’s about to find out if she can bend far enough to please everyone…or if she’ll shatter under the strain.

The Schoolteacher’s Sweetheart

Marian Yates wants something more out of life–romance, adventure, excitement. She longs to step out of the dull everyday routine of her Texas schoolteacher’s life and fall in love with a stranger.

In Brody Calhoun, she seems to have found her perfect match. He’s tall, dark, and handsome, with a thousand stories from far beyond her tiny hometown. He’s mysterious and unpredictable, exactly like the heroes in Marian’s favorite books.

But Brody is haunted by more than memories. And when his past comes between them, Marian must discover his secrets–or lose the man she loves forever.

Review of “Want Ad Wedding,” A Love Inspired historical romance from author Cheryl St. John

Want Ad Wedding coverWant Ad Wedding is the first book in the Christian inspirational Cowboy Creek series, with mail order brides bringing new beginnings to a Kansas boomtown just after the Civil War.

Leah Swann is a young widow, and trained midwife, who answers the first want ad, hoping to find a husband who will give her security and also be a good father to her unborn baby. What she finds in Cowboy Creek are her childhood friends, Daniel and Will, who traveled west after the war and founded the town, along with their friend, Noah. When Daniel decides that only he is good enough for Leah and proposes to her, promising to love and raise her late husband’s child as his own, Leah accepts and pledges to give Daniel her devotion and loyalty.

Troubles are plentiful in Cowboy Creek over the next few months…lumber thefts, dying cattle and outlaws plague the small town. The inhabitants pray for peace, while Leah prays that she and Daniel can find their way to love and a true marriage.

There are still lots of questions at the end, which will hopefully be answered in the next book, but this is a lovely story with a plethora of detail on life in this growing town, where the inhabitants count on the railroad to bring business and new settlers, and on God to see them through difficult times. Readers who like sweet romances set in the American West will enjoy Want Ad Wedding. ❤
