Mail-Order Brides of the West is a collaborative series by USA Today best-selling author Caroline Fyffe and New York Times best-selling author Debra Holland.
Mail-order-bride-to-be Heather Stanford dreads the day the matron of the St. Louis bridal agency finds her a husband and sends her west. Heather actually has no desire to marry; she just wants to free her struggling family from the financial burden of another mouth to feed. Still, she holds true to her plan when the fateful day arrives and Mrs. Seymour sings the praises of her prospective groom. Heather girds herself to leave behind all she holds dear and wonders if anyone can live up to the matron's glowing description.
After a mill accident leaves Hayden Klinkner's father injured, Hayden is faced with the challenge of a huge order to fill - short-handed - on a tight timeline. Further complicating matters, the handsome, dyed-in-the-wool bachelor discovers his meddling mother has a surprise to share with him - a wife! With the pressure he's under, a wife - even one as lovely and suitable as Heather Stanford - is the last thing he needs. Y Knot, Montana, is set abuzz when the "Mail-Order Bride Done Wrong" goes back on the market and every eligible man for miles around is interested. Hayden's eyes are now opened. Can he win back her heart before she says "I do"; with someone else?
See Debra Holland's companion book Mail-Order Brides of the West: Lina to find out what happens to Heather's friend and fellow mail-order bride when she travels to Sweetwater Springs, Montana, to become the wife of widower Jonah Barrett.
