"Melissa Jagears is a stand-out talent! Her fresh new voice is strong, stylish, and makes A Bride for Keeps a page-turner for anyone who fancies a stirring love story."
-Rosslyn Elliot, author of Fairer Than Morning and Sweeter Than Birdsong

"A Bride for Keeps treats readers to an engaging, prairie romance...delivering a heartwarming, satisfying read."
-Maggie Brendan, CBA bestselling author of The Heart of the West and The Blue Willow Brides series.

"A Bride for Keeps is just beautiful. It put me in mind of Janette Oke's sweet prairie romances but with a bit more edge, which I found compelling. . . . I love it."
-Mary Connealy, author of Fired Up

Everett Cline will never humiliate himself by seeking a mail-order bride. Notagain. He's already been jilted by three mail-order brides and figures a wife just isn't in his future, no matter how much he wishes otherwise.However, a well-meaning neighbor hasn't given up on seeing him settledand goes behind his back to bring yet another woman to town for him.

Julia Lockwood has never been anything more than a pretty pawn for her father or a business acquisition for her former fiance. A mail-order marriagein faraway Kansas is a last resort, but she'll do anything to leave herlife in Massachusetts and the heartbreak she's experienced there.

Everett doesn't see how a beautiful, cultured woman like Julia could be happysharing his simple life, but he could really use a helpmate on hishomestead. Determined to prove she's more than just a pretty face, Julia agrees to a marriage in name only. Faced with the harsh realities oflife on the prairie and hesitant to explore the tentative feelingsgrowing between them, can Everett and Julia ever let each other--andGod--in long enough to fall in love?
