Mail Order Regrets Free!
Mail Order Regrets (A Sweet Historical Mail Order Bride Romance Novel) - Montana Mail Order Brides Book 1 - Julianna Blake

Suffering the humiliating fall from a Boston Brahmin to a pauper living off relatives, she flees, trading the culture of New England for the hope of living a comfortable and respectful life with a Montana rancher. When she arrives and discovers that her husband-to-be has a reputation for lies and violent behavior, her pride won’t allow her to believe it—she will not return to Boston, and endure the whispers of her gossiping socialite peers! 

Handsome widower Clay Porter is sick of everyone trying to match him up. He doesn’t want marriage and family—not anymore. All he cares about is making extra money on the side to save up to buy his own shop. When he is hired to transport a snobbish beauty to the far-distant Croft Ranch, he realizes she is completely in the dark about her fiancé’s character. Is Clay willing to risk his own dreams—and even his life—to persuade stubborn Madeline that she's making a mistake?

The Bride Lottery: A Sweet Historical Mail Order Bride.. Review
The Bride Lottery: A Sweet Historical Mail Order Bride Romance - Kristin Holt

Forty Bachelors.
Fifteen Brides.
What could go wrong?


Colorado 1881

Evelyn is in a pickle.

In less than five months, Evelyn Brandt will be an unwed mother. Her parents discover her secret and send her away on the next west-bound train. They insist she deliver the child on the other side of the continent where the disgrace won't harm her father's business empire and the family's social standing. She'll be allowed to return home after the child is adopted by decent people and her corset fits properly once more.

Sam's in charge of the bride lottery, and the competition's fierce.
It's too bad the mail order bride agency failed to round up even half their order, 'cause every man on the mountain wants a bride--except Sam Kochler--so he's saddled with enforcing the rules. He received bios of each lady the agency sent, so when Evelyn steps off the train, he's a tad curious and a mite too interested.

 

Review

 

I love a good Mail Order Bride (or Groom) Romance. This one was good if predictable and then it stalled into mundane a bit annoying. 

 

I really hate added in conflict when two people who don't really know each other and the backstory each bring is enough. There is a moment in the book where are I just groaned because we had to deal with the OW (Other Woman). Why? I would have instead like to have couple time and seen the leads actually fall in love.

 

The writer shows promise and I might try the next one in the series to she if the melodrama is outgrown.

The Highwayman's Daughter (by Henriette Gyland)
The Highwayman's Daughter - Henriette Gyland

After being robbed Jack hunts down the bandit. But she's quite a handful.
A plucky heroine, a dashing hero and a dastardly villain.

The Homeless Heiress (MB Historical Romance) (Mills & Boon Historical)
The Homeless Heiress (MB Historical Romance) (Mills & Boon Historical) - Anne Herries I enjoy the light romances set in Regency times. Especially hen the heroine is a minx or willing to stand up for herself. Georgie, here is more a minx getting in trouble & needing rescuing. As usual, the two lovers are at odds, neither wanting to admit their feelings, although his reasons made more sense to me. Still a good escape for an evening.
