Yes, this is exactly the same 12 authors that provided “The 12 Brides of Christmas Collection” worthy of reading also, even off-holiday. But don’t expect Christmas stories to cool the romance peak.
For those who like spoiler-less details, individual notes in the Barbour book order:
==1=The Honey Bride –Diana Lesire Brandmeyer –Trenton IL 1887 (48pages)

“Mozart” is pianolady Marilee’s dog. He pounds the keyboard badly. Marilee plays classics to forget. Blacksmithy Jed’s dog, “Dynamite,” is a weekly run-away cow dog, just like “Mo.” Summer Dog Days arrive with a dog-gone dilemma that could lead to love nipping at someone’s heels, wag, wag, bow & wow.
==3=The Fourth of July Bride –Amanda Cabot –Cheyenne WY Terr June 1886 (42p)
It seems to be a sparkler of a romance potential between cattle baron Gideon and Naomi. Would the fireworks turn to dud, since mom’s eyes need an unaffordable operation leading to a life commitment of care for a blink parent?

==5=Blue Moon Bride –Susan Page Davis –New England to Cheyenne WY (47p)

Tomboy Gracie considers Jerold Carnegie to be unappetizing, in her own words “like a bowl of day-old bread soaked in milk.” Daddy’s choice. Then to Will, the stranger that yanks her from her dogwood limb roost, “Let go of me, you lout.” Who’ll tame this fiery red-head in breeches?
==7=The Lumberjack’s Bride –Pam Hillman –Sipsey Creek MS June 1889 (47p)
Eli’s introduction to Lucy is fast, yet innocently indecent, fact-to-face, prone, in the loblolly pine forest. Tsk, tsk. None can make a lumberLucy of her, not with a beau back in Chicago to pine over. But, oh my, the flapjack, tsk, tsk, lesson.
==8=The Summer Harvest Bride –Maureen Lang –Finchville IL spring 1851 (45p)
Everyone expects Sally to get romantically involved with the Mayor’s son. When the gristmill-builder with so many fine strapping sons arrives with construction plans, it’s anyone’s guess if a miller might first bag Sally as a wife. Lucas has more flirt than a gristmill has gunnysacks.
==9=The Wildflower Bride –Amy Lillard –Ozarks AR June 1871 (41p)
Grace’s lot in life is destined only to be the churchlady to her father’s church—never a bride. But is her ‘calling’ stronger than the yearning she feels when she sees Ian Mc-something all decked out in his formal-dress kilt? Is someone telling an irreverent clerical lie?
=10=The County Fair Bride –Vickie McDonough –Bakerstown MO May-Sep 1892 (39p)
The sharp-tongued parson-stalker, rude, bossy Prudy returns to her hometown, first since her dad’s stroke.

=11=The Columbine Bride –Davalynn Spencer –CO Aug 1886 (45p)

=12=The Sunbonnet Bride –Michelle Ule –Fairhope NE July 1874 (43p)
Nebraska sky suggests to Malcolm that the day’s weather swayed as unpredictable as Sally, the pretty gal that tiny Anna says, “She smile after you.” It is her family’s farm that a tornado rips its worst upon. Will banker Josiah deliver needed help to storm victims?
