The west was a lonely, male-dominated frontier in those early years. Desperate men seeking a wife to ease their loneliness and barren existence, help them manage a farm or ranch, and with whom they could start a family on the unforgiving prairie often succumbed to placing an ad in the newspaper or a match-maker type magazine.
Women in urgent circumstances or eager to find marriage would answer these ads, correspond with the potential bridegroom with a few letters, and then take the plunge to go west and marry a man they barely knew.
I read once where great stories were written when one of the lead characters makes a big mistake. I think it’s true. Maybe that’s why I like to read mail-order bride stories. Who the heck knows what would happen when two desperate strangers marry?
I recently read a fantastic anthology published by Prairie Rose Publications titled LASSOING A MAIL ORDER BRIDE with 4 wonderful stories about desperate strangers who married written by the following esteemed western romance authors:
Cheryl Pierson—“These Rough Dreams”
Tanya Hanson—“Her Hurry Up Husband”
Kaye Spencer—“A Permanent Woman”
Kathleen Rice Adams—“The Big Uneasy”
Each of these captivating story tellers presents a unique and refreshing tale with seemingly insurmountable obstacles in the paths of the couples preventing true love and happiness. But readers can trust these western romance writers will somehow bring each story to a happy and satisfying conclusion. Just how the characters overcome these impediments is half the fun of reading these stories.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading each of these delightful and romantic stories in LASSOING A MAIL-ORDER BRIDE and I highly recommend this anthology to anyone who loves a solid western with a heaping dose of romance.
In THESE ROUGH DREAMS, Gabby Mason answers an ad for a mail-order bride out of desperation. Thankfully, the no-good scoundrel-of-a-man she was to marry dies, and Johnny Rainbolt steps in. Marriage may come first, but their subsequent heartfelt courtship will satisfy the romantics to the end.
In HER HURRY-UP HUSBAND, Elspeth Maroney leaves city life for the wilds of Colorado after an unfortunate indiscretion leaves her worried she may be with child. Marrying rancher Hez Steller will solve both of their problems, since he's in need of an heir. But when curiosity turns to love, Elsie can't let a lie sit between them. A thoroughly fun tale.
In A PERMANENT WOMAN, Simon Driscoll is a widower about to take guardianship of his grandchildren. Tessa Morris needs to start anew after her professional reputation as a doctor is questioned. Theirs is most decidedly a marriage of convenience, with both considering an end to the union when circumstances change. But they don't count on truly caring for one another. A compelling romance with wonderful, slightly older, characters. You won't be able to put it down.
In THE BIG UNEASY, New Orleans belle Josephine LaPierre has agreed to marry a Texan, a man who has no interest in her. It doesn't help when Amon Collier, the man's brother, suits her more. As they both fight their growing attraction, they must also deal with skeletons in the closet and strong undercurrents of prejudice. A wonderful story set at the dawn of the Civil War, with not only a stiking cast of characters, but also a little dog named Napolean who steals the show.
