PRAIRIE ROSE PUBLICATIONS has a real treat for you! Lassoing a Mail-Order Bride, the third anthology of great western romance sweet/sensual stories to be released in the last month, is available TODAY.
This anthology contains four stories about mail-order brides and the circumstances that made them choose this route for their lives. I’ve often wondered what would make a woman of those times decide to leave everything familiar to her and set out on an unknown path to meet and marry a person she really knew nothing about–many times, not even what he looked like. And we know, they weren’t ALL “tall, dark and handsome” guys.
This anthology is packed with entertaining scenarios about what happened in the lives of four women–and the men who sought them out. Here’s a sneak peek at the blurbs. I’m giving away one copy of LASSOING A MAIL-ORDER BRIDE today–just be sure to leave a comment and include your contact information. This will be a digital copy of the book.
LASSOING A MAIL-ORDER BRIDE
A woman would have to be loco to become a mail-order bride…wouldn’t she? Leaving everything behind and starting fresh in the untamed west is the answer to a prayer for these ladies!

A pregnant young lady becomes desperate–almost as desperate as her soon-to-be husband, who just inherited his sister’s kids. A man in love with a woman he can’t have–or can he? A woman’s reputation is tarnished and professional career compromised–she runs, but she can’t hide. Will they all find love with strangers they’ve never met who are set on LASSOING A MAIL-ORDER BRIDE?
