This collection of short stories, centered around an arranged marriage in the Old West, are filled with romance and a dash of steam. In THESE ROUGH DREAMS, Gabby Mason answers an ad for a mail-order bride out of desperation. Thankfully, the no-good scoundrel-of-a-man she was to marry dies, and Johnny Rainbolt steps in. Marriage may come first, but their subsequent heartfelt courtship will satisfy the romantics to the end. In HER HURRY-UP HUSBAND, Elspeth Maroney leaves city life for the wilds of Colorado after an unfortunate indiscretion leaves her worried she may be with child. Marrying rancher Hez Steller will solve both of their problems, since he's in need of an heir. But when curiosity turns to love, Elsie can't let a lie sit between them. A thoroughly fun tale. In A PERMANENT WOMAN, Simon Driscoll is a widower about to take guardianship of his grandchildren. Tessa Morris needs to start anew after her professional reputation as a doctor is questioned. Theirs is most decidedly a marriage of convenience, with both considering an end to the union when circumstances change. But they don't count on truly caring for one another. A compelling romance with wonderful, slightly older, characters. You won't be able to put it down. In THE BIG UNEASY, New Orleans belle Josephine LaPierre has agreed to marry a Texan, a man who has no interest in her. It doesn't help when Amon Collier, the man's brother, suits her more. As they both fight their growing attraction, they must also deal with skeletons in the closet and strong undercurrents of prejudice. A wonderful story set at the dawn of the Civil War, with not only a stiking cast of characters, but also a little dog named Napolean who steals the show.
