Check yourself into the Texas Boardinghouse Brides series by Vickie McDonough, where you'll meet Luke Davis, marshal of Lookout, Texas, who flippantly tells his cousin he'd get married if the right woman ever came along. When three mail-order brides are delivered to Luke a month later, he's in an uncomfortable predicament. How will he ever choose his mate?
Rachel Hamilton's long-time love for Luke is reignited with his return to town. So when three mail-order brides appear, she panics. Will she find the courage to tell Luke that she loves him? Or take an anonymous part in the contest for his hand?
If you are looking for a sweet escape laced with humour and heart, Vickie McDonough's The Anonymous Bride will easily satisfy. The first in her Texas Boardinghouse Brides series will appeal to readers of Mary Connolly's humourous tales and has all the ingredients readers of traditional Christian historical romance look for. Unrequieted love, a broken heart, a feisty young tomboy and three woman all determined to become the wife of the new town marshal make a delightful combination, perfect for an afternoon interlude!
