Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Joan Johnston is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of many historical and contemporary romance novels. She received a master of arts degree in theater from the University of Illinois and graduated with honors from the University of Texas School of Law at Austin. She is currently a full-time writer living in Colorado.

Review:

"In Johnston's third Mail-Order Bride historical (after Wyoming Bride), which ties in to her long-running Bitter Creek series, an orphan gets an unexpected opportunity. Lucy Templeton, a mail-order bride, falls over a cliff and dies on the way to meet her prospective husband, Karl Norwood. Hetty Wentworth, who was traveling with Lucy, decides to take her place. She becomes an instant mother to Griffin and Grace, Lucy's wards, as they head westward. Hetty is disappointed to find Karl plain and ordinary, but as she gets to know him, mutual attraction starts to grow. She appreciates his kindness toward her and the children and struggles with guilt over not telling him the truth about her impersonation. The dangers of 19th-century Montana Territory add realism to this swiftly paced romance, as Karl tries to decide whether Hetty's love for him is merely just another lie. The only sour note is the stereotyped portrayal of Lin Bao, a 'Chinaman' prone to 'Confucius say' moments. Agent: Robert Gottlieb, Trident Media Group." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC.

About the Author

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

A DESPERATE DECEPTION

THE PROMISE OF FOREVER

 

When Karl Norwood’s mail-order bride meets an untimely demise on the way to the Montana Territory, Hetty Wentworth steps in to take her place. Hetty has no idea how she’s going to pretend to be all the things she isn’t—including the mother of two kids. She only knows her deception is necessary if she’s going to save two orphans from the awful fate she suffered as a child.

 

Karl smells a rat when a much younger woman than he was expecting arrives with two children who look nothing like her. But his mail-order bride is so beautiful, he doesn’t object—until he realizes that his charming new wife has been lying . . . about everything. Can a woman forced to keep secrets and a man hindered by distrust ever hope to find happily ever after in each other’s arms?
