Overview

Dylan Tremaine, a newly arrived miner from Wales, bets the local tavern owner that he can get Caitlin Pearce, the uptight local schoolmarm to kiss him in full view of anyone who cares to watch in the town of Mineral Point Wisconsin. If he wins the wager he’ll finally have enough money to head west to the gold fields of California.

But when the handsome Welsh miner shows up pretending to want lessons in reading and arithmetic, Caitlin sees her opportunity to get what she’s wanted for years—the right to live by herself instead of with her nosy family. She proposes that Dylan pretend to court and marry her and then abandon her by leaving town and later having word sent that he has died. He can get on with life in California while she plays the role of the grieving widow—they’ll each get what they want.

But smart as she is Caitlin Pearce is completely unschooled when it comes to managing matters of the heart. Surely a teacher should be able to figure out that one smitten young man plus one suddenly uncertain spinster plus a beautiful starry night is bound to add up to trouble.

Meet the Author

Anna Schmidt is a three-time finalist for the coveted RITA award presented annually by Romance Writers of America. She is the author of over twenty works of historical and contemporary fiction. Most recently Anna has joined the popular move to ‘plain’ fiction where characters are either Amish or Mennonite.

Her latest series—THE WOMEN OF PINECRAFT and THE BRIDES OF CELERY FIELDS—are both set in Florida’s unique Amish/Mennonite Gulf Coast community. Women of Pinecraft is a contemporary series that follows the lives of several women living in Pinecraft as they face challenges both personal and professional and find their way through life’s challenges to love and faith. Critics are raving about Books One and Two: A STRANGER’S GIFT and the heartrending A SISTER’S FORGIVENESS coming in May. The third and final book in the series—A MOTHER’S PROMISE – will be out just in time for the holidays. Brides of Celery Fields is a historical series about four women living in the fictional Amish setting of Celery Fields in the 1930’s. The third book in the series: A GROOM FOR GRETA will be available this fall and the 4th and final book in the series will come out in Spring of 2013.
