All Vanessa ever wanted was to be loved.
Okay, strike that—all she wanted was not to die at the hands of the homicidal maniac who was obsessed with hunting her down—AND to be loved.
Was that too much to ask?
Going to Jacob’s Well and becoming a Lottery Bride sounded like it would make all Vanessa’s dreams come true.
For the first time in her life, she’d have a family. For the first time in her life, she’d have not just one person to love her, but FIVE.
And she’d be safe from the notorious female slave trader, Lorenzo Bernal.
There’s just one teeny, tiny problem.
When the lottery husbands are announced, it turns out none of them intentionally entered. And they want out of the bargain.
*Events of this novel occur at the same time as events in Book 2 in the series but Their Bride is a full-length, standalone novel in the series.
“Their Bride” is full of emotions, passion and excitement that keeps readers glued to the pages.
These strong, appealing characters capture the hearts of readers as each has vulnerabilities and issues that hinder their relationship which provides lots of emotional turmoil during all the sizzling chemistry and heated passions of this captivating romance. Vanessa is a strong courageous woman with a challenging past that has kept her on the run but she remains strong and strives to make her own dreams come true which readers can certainly relate to and all the men easily ensure that readers want to help them overcome their problems and reach for happiness. Each of the men are different with unique issues so this adds variety and ensures that readers are never bored throughout this romance.
The fast paced and smooth flowing plot is not full of blazing hot passion and steamy sex scenes but it is also full of excitement, danger and a few surprising twists involving each of the characters which keep readers glued to the pages. This story references some of the events that take place in “Theirs to Protect” and continues a bit further in the future than where it ended, so while the story is standalone and can be read before the second book, for readers to get the most enjoyment out of the books, the series should be read in order due to the overall events that take place throughout the series.
I found that reading “Their Bride" actually made “Theirs to Protect” even better because this one made things more complete having read both books and I really can’t wait to find out what happens next in the series.

Their Bride is available in ebook at:
Stasia was born in Georgia, grew up in Texas, recently spent a freezing five-year stint in Minnesota, and now is happily planted in sunny California, which she will never, ever leave.
She loves writing, reading, listening to podcasts, and has recently taken up biking after a twenty-year sabbatical (and has the bumps and bruises to prove it). She lives with her own personal cheerleader, aka, her handsome husband, and their teenage son. Wow. Typing that makes her feel old. And writing about herself in the third person makes her feel a little like a nutjob, but ahem! Where were we?
Stasia’s drawn to romantic stories that don’t take the easy way out. She wants to see beneath people’s veneer and poke into their dark places, their twisted motives, and their deepest desires. Basically, she wants to create characters that make readers alternately laugh, cry ugly tears, want to toss their kindles across the room, and then declare they have a new FBB (forever book boyfriend).

I live in the cold, upper Midwest with my husband and three kids. I spend summers on Lake Superior, which is the muse for my contemporary romance, Summer Girl, and I’m a sucker for down-to-earth men who work with their hands (if they play guitar, that’s an added bonus). I love all things Irish—particularly music, dancing, and Jameson. When I’m not writing or reading romance, I’m traveling, camping, visiting book clubs, blogging for Writer Unboxed, and writing paranormal and contemporary young adult novels (under my real name).
