How is your week going? The third story in the Brides Of Weber Valley is still keeping me busy, and I’m also beginning to plan a few more stories for Christmastime. Are there any special themes you’d like to see in them? : )
I’m happy to share this week’s Sweet Reads Spotlight with you today. If you’re a mail order bride fan, I thought you might be interested in reading Natalie Dean’s book, Taming The Rancher. Right now, it’s available for only 99 cents, and it’s also included in the Kindle Unlimited program if you’re a subscriber.
I also thought I’d surprise you with a freebie of my own! If you haven’t read the Montana Valley Brides series, Mail Order Bride: Margaret’s Journey is the third installment, and it will be free to download in participating Amazon stores through September 25.

Bonnie Yankovich is twenty years old and particular. None of the young coal miners in Pittsburgh suit her, so her mother tells her it’s time she looked elsewhere for a husband.
That’s when Bonnie decides to head west to Texas to marry Zachary Taylor Kennesaw; the handsome grandson of a strong-willed woman who rules her twin grandsons the way she rules her ranch. BUT…when Bonnie meets her husband-to-be, he’s wearing nothing but his trousers and a winning smile; he lost his clothes in a poker game.
William Henry Kennesaw, as unlike his twin brother as a saloon is from a Sunday school, is mourning the loss of his beloved and in him, Bonnie finds a friend. But when Zachary Taylor starts showing signs of cold feet, and his friends start to tease him about losing his freedom when he’s married, Bonnie knows that she has to prove to her husband, and his poker buddies, that marriage isn’t going to be the end of him. And if that means going into a saloon herself to prove it, then that’s where Bonnie will go!
What will Zachary Taylor and his friends think of Bonnie when she shows up at the saloon?!? Will Bonnie be savvy enough to tame Zachary Taylor, or will her plan backfire on her?

Boston, Massachusetts – 1887
Margaret Sinclair is a fiery, free-spirited woman who longs to break away from Boston life to marry a handsome man in the West. She and her friends work together in a textile mill, but all of them wish for a better life. One day, they decide to peruse the mail order bride advertisements in the newspaper, and Margaret is drawn to an ad placed by the town doctor in Missoula Mills, Montana.
Dr. Stephen Wyatt is a kind and gentle man who has spent his life caring for patients, but he is lonely and longs for a wife to keep him company and give his life an even greater sense of purpose. When Margaret comes to him, it is as if both of their dreams have become true.
She begins to train as a nurse at the nearby orphanage and loves what she does, but one day disaster strikes. Many of the children become deathly ill, and it is not long before Margaret falls ill as well.
Will the good doctor be able to heal his benevolent bride before it is too late?
Happy Reading, Friends!
