Ordering a bride was supposed to be easy…
I’m so thrilled to share the full, official blurb for The Prospector’s Only Prospect, along with the cover flat for the print version, which is ever so pretty.
After eight days in a cramped stagecoach, divorcée Marigold Davis already regrets her decision to come to Denver City to marry. She certainly didn’t realize she’d signed up for mosquitos, mud, and scores of rough men eyeing her like a hot meal on a cold day. But with her life in Kansas all but incinerated, Marigold needs a husband. Even if she’s not the bride that gold prospector Virgil Gardner is expecting…
Virgil Gardner has a reputation as a grumpy hard-ass, and he’s fine with it. He’s also no fool – this is not the woman he agreed to marry. It takes a tough-as-nails woman to survive the harshness of a Rocky Mountain gold claim, and this whiskey-eyed, gentle beauty is certainly not the type. Now it’s just a matter of how quickly she’ll quit, so he can find a wife who will stick. Someone who can care for the only thing he values even more than gold–his children.
But Marigold isn’t about to give in. Cramped in a one room shack. Berry picking turned into a bear escape. Or, cooking for an entire crew of bottomless pits. She’s got more grit than most. And just when Virgil starts to realize his replacement bride might be the treasure he’s been looking for, an unannounced guest arrives… to change everything.
I’m very excited for you to read The Prospector’s Only Prospect which has lots of my favorite ingredients: a grumpy hero, a cheeky heroine, nature and children and interfering secondary characters. Also a slow-burn romance that gets hot, hot, hot and a sigh-worthy ending.
The Prospector’s Only Prospect releases March 28th.
