Jacquie Rogers takes over the story Mail Order Ruckus, at this point. After Ellie is settled Laura finds herself at loose ends. She contacts the marriage broker, determined to go to Idaho and win the heart of Matt, the cousin of Kage. When she gets to Idaho she has one week to convince Matt that she is the one for him but Matt is not in the market for a wife.
Both stories are full of adventure,action, villains, love and a sense of humor. These two authors have written books that I could not put down. I highly recommend this two for one bargain by two very talented authors.
Ms. Clemmons book, Mail Order Promise, is about a young rancher, Kage Johanssen, who returns to his family home only to find that his elder brother, Eric, is dying from a riding accident. Eric has sent for a mail order bride and asks that Kage marry her in his place. After making the promise Kage states that he will not marry her; he only made the promise so Eric would die in peace. When the Mail Order Bride, Ellie Dickerson, arrives, she brings her sister with her, so Laura could avoid marring an old man. When Kage and Ellie meet there are no friendly feelings, and sparks fly. The books is well written and very entertaining.
Ms. Rogers book, Mail Order Ruckus, follows Kage's cousin Matt and Laura. Kage was very disappointed that he could not return to the ranch he and Matt had started in the Idaho Territory, but Matt has returned to make the ranch a success. He has stated that he could not afford to marry for at least two years till the ranch become profitable. Laura has developed feeling for Matt, but does not feel she can wait two years for him to return, so she contracts to go to the Idaho Territory as a Mail Order Bride. Needless to say when Matt see her everything becomes more complicated because there is only one week before all the brides must marry. The story is attention grabbing and has some very funny moments.
I truely recommend this book to everyone.
Sister Laura is feeling like a fifth wheel so she contacts the marriage broker to take her to Idaho to find her own home and family. She is hoping to find cousin Matt, who is ranching in the Owyhee county area that she secretly fell in love with while he was in Texas. He is not interested in a wife when she arrives, but he doesn't want any one else to have her, so the chase begins. This story was so good that I was looking for more of these ladies story when the book ended. I highly recommend this book to all that love the western romance and the mail-order brides stories.
These two stories are full of laughs. Here is my favorite quote from the book, 'Good grief on a biscuit, she'd picked up her drawers and thrown them at him.' I hope you will buy this book, I sure recommend it!
