Edwina Ladoux hoped becoming a mail-order bride would be her way out of the war-torn South, but as soon as she arrives in Heartbreak Creek, Colorado, and meets her hulking, taciturn groom, she realizes shes made a terrible mistake. Declan Brodie already had one flighty wife who ran off with a gambler before being killed by Indians. Hes hoping for a practical farm woman who can corral his four rambunctious children. Instead, he gets a skinny Southern princess who doesnt even know how to cook.
Luckily, Edwina and Declan agreed on a three-month courtship period, allowing them time to get the proxy marriage annulled. Yet as the weeks pass, thoughts of annulment turn into hopes for a real marriage—until the unspeakable happens, and suddenly Declan is torn between duty and desire, and Edwina has to fight for the family shes grown to love
*The Romance Dish
"Molly McFarlane flees from her vicious brother-in-law with her late sister's children in tow in this second entry of the Blood Rose trilogy. Without a real plan, she heads for the frontier, hoping for a new life but the train carrying them is derailed and, desperate, Molly marries an injured man in the hopes of getting the widow's benefits. However, Hank Wilkins doesn't die, and though he remembers nothing, still he takes Molly and the children back to his ranch, where he starts to fall in love with her. But when a tracker sent by her brother-in-law menaces her and Hank learns the truth about their marriage, Molly is desperate, with no one to turn to except the man she has deceived but also come to love. While there's a great deal of genre conventions in this historical romance: rough and tumble men, independent but vulnerable women and a frontier code of honor, still, Molly and Hank are a charming couple, despite the needlessly dramatic villains and the preposterous "conspiracy" around them. For fans of Western romance who don't mind some suspension of disbelief." Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)
From a "truly original new voice in historical fiction" ("New York Times"-bestselling author Jodi Thomas) comes the second novel in the Blood Rose trilogy--a passionate new saga of the three Wilkins brothers, living and loving on the dangerous American frontier.

Then Angus Wallace returns home unexpectedly after a military injury to find his wife gone, and to discover hes in line to an earldom. His mission to find Maddie takes him to Heartbreak Creek, Colorado where his biggest challenge awaits: convincing his headstrong wife to return home as his viscountess.
Now Maddie must decide between the glorious Colorado mountains or the glittering ballrooms of London, and between the man she has loved and the dreams she wants so desperately to fulfill.
