From Kaki Warner comes an exciting new series about four unlikely brides who make their way west-and find love where they least expect it...

Edwina Ladoux hoped becoming a mail-order bride would be her way out of the war- torn South and into a better life, but as soon as she arrives in Heartbreak Creek, Colorado, and meets her hulking, taciturn groom, she realizes she's made a terrible mistake.

Declan Brodie already had one flighty wife who ran off with a gambler before being killed by Indians. He's hoping this new one will be a practical, sturdy farm woman who can help with chores and corral his four rambunctious children. Instead, he gets a skinny Southern princess who doesn't even know how to cook.

Luckily, Edwina and Declan agreed on a three-month courtship period, which should give them time to get the proxy marriage annulled. Except that as the weeks pass, thoughts of annulment turn into hopes for a real marriage- until Declan's first wife returns after being held captive for the last four years. Now an honorable man must choose between duty and desire, and a woman who's never had to fight for anything must do battle for the family she's grown to love...

"Compelling, emotionally intense and brimming over with compassion and realism, the story brings the best of the Wild West and the warmth of a homespun story to life....It's thoroughly satisfying and unforgettable."
-Romantic Times

"Kaki Warner proved how adept she was at telling sweeping tales of the Western United States with her Blood Rose trilogy in 2010. Now the first of her avidly awaited new series is finally here and Warner not only doesn't disappoint, but proves that she's the new go-to writer for Western romances."
-All About Romance

"The result is another extraordinary book from Kaki Warner, who may be turning those persistent rumors of a Western romance revival into fact."
-The Romance Dish
