BOOK ONE in the BRIDES OF SWEET CREEK RANCH SERIES
The Brides of Sweet Creek Ranch is an uplifting Historical Western Romance series set in Wyoming Territory on a frontier homestead ranch. The books follow the untamed Haven brothers and their struggle to carry on the legacy of running a ranch dedicated to rescuing homeless boys.
ELLA HUNTER never thought she'd be a mail-order bride. But when she sees a photo in the Marriage Gazette of the man she believes killed her brother, Ella agrees to marry the Civil War soldier turned cowboy. Prepared to confront a cold-hearted killer then return home, she finds all her expectations dashed when her intended husband appears to be a good man. Ella's loyalties are torn between honoring the memories of her family and her undeniable attraction to Ty Haven.
TY HAVEN needs a wife. The ranch he runs in the wilds of Wyoming Territory could use a woman's influence. Frankly, so could he. So when Ella arrives like a gift tied up in a cornflower-blue hair ribbon, more intelligent, practical, and, yes, beautiful, than he could have imagined, he hopes she will give him and the West a chance. Turns out, he doesn't just need a wife. He needs Ella. But she has a secret, and it might destroy their marriage almost before it's begun.
Can the unforgivable be forgiven? What will the cowboy ranchman do when he learns why…THE MAIL-ORDER BRIDE CARRIES A GUN?
