Seven Brides for Seven Mail-Order Husbands

Seven Brides for Seven Mail-Order Husbands by Cynthia Hickey

Wonderful collection of stories! Written with the reality of life after the Civil War, the mayor of Turtle Springs, Kansas with the vote of the women of the town, runs an ad for Mail-Order Husbands.. Each author features a different women and the husband they choose. I loved these stories about the loss, the struggle to survive the aftermath of the war and the romantic conclusion of these sit down interviews with those men who showed up looking for a bride. If you like stories of mail-order brides… you will love this twist of Mail-Order Husbands!

Two recovery specialists.
One murder.
A hunt for the Dutchman’s Lost Gold Mine becomes a race of survival.

Former Army MP Landry Parker fell into the recovery specialist role quite by accident—to help her ailing father. Now that she’s on her own, she is determined to prove herself and honor her family legacy.

After being shot in the line of duty, former police officer Nickolai Baptiste became a recovery specialist, and he’s good at his job—maybe even the best.

A potential client pits Landry and Nickolai against one another to find the Dutchman’s Lost Gold Mine map that was stolen from her murdered husband, and the potential payday is too enticing to pass up. The trail takes them from New Orleans to Weaver’s Needle in Arizona where legend claims the mine is hidden. Landry and Nickolai are no strangers to adventure, but the unlikely partners quickly discover there’s someone after the treasure and there are those who want to ensure the lost mine in Arizona’s Superstition Mountain stays lost forever.

Can Landry and Nickolai work together despite their distrust of each other to save the legend before more innocent lives are lost? Will they find the real treasure isn’t the gold, but something more valuable. . .true love and understanding?

Eagle Harbor Series Box Set 1 – 3

Eagle Harbor Series Box Set 1-3: Historical Christian Romance by [Rawlings, Naomi]  Love’s Unfading Light is about Tressa and Mac’s story, both of them feel guilty for something they didn’t do, but they feel responsible for a family members actions and are blamed for it by many of the town citizens. The author really made me feel how these two were being treated and yes, small towns know everyone and always seem to have leaders, good and bad. This book had a very real feel for the town and characters. I enjoyed how Mac treated Tressa and the gentle romance that developed between them..
Love’s Every Whisper is a continuing saga from Eagle Harbor, on the southern shore of stormy Lake Superior! Mystery, suspense, rescues in stormy waters and the quest to protect and win a ladies heart. We know that Elijah knows how to save drowning sailors, but I really enjoyed finding out how he would save Victoria from the biggest mistake of her life! Lots of action and romance too!
Love’s Sure Dawn is the continuing story of Eagle Harbor and the Cummings family. This family has it’s up’s and downs and with faith and love the family became so real. Rebekah and Gilbert certainly went the long way around to see and find what they both really wanted. I love Christian romance, small towns, and historical places that come alive on the page, so I certainly enjoyed Love’s Sure Dawn. I highly recommend all of the Eagle Harbor books & can’t wait for the next one in the series it’s definitely one of my favorite family drama series!

           by Erica Vetsch

I enjoy Historical romance and this is one that grabbed me in the first pages and I did not want to put it down or for it to end. Life in Fort Bliss was hard, interesting and the characters were like family by the end of the book. What a ride! This author packs a lot in between the pages of this book and I certainly will be reading more of her books!

Mountain Christmas Brides, collection

Mountain Christmas Brides: Nine Historical Novellas Celebrate Faith and Love in the Rocky Mountains   This nine author collection takes place in the late 1800’s and centered around nine couples who find that Christmas was the perfect time to fall in love. I really enjoyed how the stories were connected, yet still a story all of their own. Getting snowed in during a blizzard with a person that can turn it into a romantic start to a relationship, loved it!! These authors know how to make it happen.. I couldn’t pick a favorite because I enjoyed everyone of them!   I requested a copy through NetGalley.
