BACK OF THE BOOK BLURBEliza Kelly thought her humiliation was complete when she identified the wrong train passenger as her mail-order groom. She was only trying to tell Jackson Hart that the madcap scheme was not her idea. But now the stormy-eyed blacksmith has decided to stay, rumors are flying. And Jackson does the gallant thing--he offers the lovely widow a marriage of convenience.
Though he came to New Mexico to find his father, Jackson wonders if Eliza'smistake was his good fortune. Between caring for an orphaned youngster and protecting Eliza, Jackson feels whole again. If only he can persuade Eliza to marry him, her reputation will be saver...and so will their long-buried dreams of forging a real family.
MY REVIEWAnother enjoyable book starts out by putting Eliza in a difficult situation and just continues when the marshal asks Jackson to take her back to Cottonwood Springs. I like the way Rhonda has them handle their 'problem' and she has written an ending that puts you on the edge of your seat for a short time. The truth that Jackson discovers will tear at your heart too.
Although these books are listed as novels and not a series I would suggest reading "The Marshal's Promise", "Groom by Arrangement", and looking ahead, "Taming the Texas Rancher" and "His Chosen Bride" in this order as they all deal with people from Cottonwood Springs. Thank you Rhonda for your mail-order bride books.
