‘Montana Sky’ Kindle World Series
Fourteen awesome authors launched the new ‘Montana Sky’ Kindle World Series, based on Debra Holland’s ‘Montana Sky’ series. These books are primarily set in the mining town of Morgan’s Crossing, although some of the characters pass through Sweetwater Springs on their way to the mining town. The Pioneer Hearts blog is exploring three more of the Kindle World stories below.
Sisters Esther and Coral Carruthers realize they need to leave town quickly to escape the scandal of their father’s crime. Esther chooses to become a mail-order bride in faraway Montana Territory rather than face her former fiancé at every turn. The only problem is she must take her younger, and more capable sister, with her when she goes.
Brody Finnegan sends away for a mail-order bride and is thrilled when Esther answers his letter, not realizing she will be bringing her younger sister with her. He’s not happy when he spots the two of them together, but agrees to still marry Esther taking them both on. Will Esther and Brody be able to get past her initial deception and find love together? Or will having Coral involved ruin everything?
Widower Wesley Briggs is content to raise his son and work his ranch alone, until one of his cowhands, Rory Wise, who has already ordered a mail order bride, breaks his back in a fall. When Wesley fetches Rory’s bride from the station, he encounters a lovely, vulnerable woman.
After her father’s death, Frances Brewbaker and her four sisters must find husbands at once. Agreeing to move to Montana and marry a stranger, she embarks on the adventure. She is met at the depot, not by her intended, but by his employer, who she finds appealing and ruggedly handsome.
Faced with the prospect of losing her intended, Frances must decide if she will stay in the Montana Territory. The widower and his son, Jason, are much in need of a woman’s touch to soften their rough edges. Jason adores her, yet Wesley’s feelings are infinitely more complex, because he has fallen in love with Frances. Can he convince her to stay and marry him?
