Overview

After eight days in a cramped stagecoach, divorcée Marigold Davis already regrets her decision to come to Denver City to marry. She certainly didn't realize she'd signed up for mosquitoes, mud, and scores of rough men eyeing her. But with her life in Kansas all but incinerated, Marigold needs a husband. Even if she's not the bride that gold prospector Virgil Gardner is expecting . . .



Virgil Gardner has a reputation as a grumpy hard-ass, and he's fine with it. He's also no fool-this is not the woman he agreed to marry. It takes a tough-as-nails woman to survive the harshness of a Rocky Mountain gold claim, and this whiskey-eyed, gentle beauty is certainly not the type. Now it's just a matter of how quickly she'll quit so he can find a wife who will stick. Someone who can care for the only thing he values even more than gold-his children.



But Marigold isn't about to give in. Berry picking turned into a bear escape. Or cooking for an entire crew of bottomless pits. She's got more grit than most. And just when Virgil starts to realize his replacement bride might be the treasure he's been looking for, an unannounced guest arrives . . . to change everything.



Contains mature themes.

Collins (Wedding Night with the Wrong Billionaire) puts a delightful twist on the mail order bride trope when scandalous divorcée Marigold Davis takes her sister’s place as the mail order bride of Virgil Gardner. Her old life is in shambles, so how bad could roughing it in 19th-century Denver City really be? Virgil, who runs a mining company, is less than pleased to find the wrong woman stepping out of the stage couch, but he’s desperate for a caregiver for his three young children and agrees to take Marigold on as a housekeeper, not a wife. She quickly adapts to life in the mining encampment, charming the miners with her spirit and letter-writing skills and bonding with the children. Though Virgil balks at trusting her, he can’t deny that he’s drawn to opinionated Marigold, despite being unused to a woman going toe to toe with him. Just when their mutual attraction escalates, however, an unexpected visitor threatens to derail their fragile relationship. Collins mines the setting for both danger and humor, providing the perfect backdrop to this sensuous romance. Readers won’t want to put this down. Agent: Louise Fury, Bent Agency. (Apr.)
