This is a clean mail order bride story with 9 FREE BONUS STORIES Included!
The wealthy son of a plantation owner, Jedidiah Higgins must find a bride, and fast. His old, ailing father Polonius expressly said in his will that if Jedidiah wasn’t married by the time of his death, the picturesque Grand Willow Tree estate would go to Jedidiah’s lazy, married brother Constable. Having already been stood-up by a mail order bride once, Jedidiah was desperate and willing to pay for a speedy spouse from Clayton Texas.
Matchmaker Ida Gillespie knew that there was great money involved in the deal, but there was only one problem; the only eligible lady in Clayton was the gun-slinging, fast-talking, horse-racing Kate Tiverton. By no means the first choice for a southern plantation bride, Ida convinces Kate to go through quite the transformation to pull off the ruse. Once at Grand Willow Tree, Kate can’t believe her eyes. The opulence and southern charm that she encounters are not what she expected at all.
Nor is the tall, dashing Jedidiah Higgins, for that matter.
Equally intrigued by his future bride, Jedidiah’s only wish was that Kate Tiverton would be more spirited, and not such the tame, Southern belle that he was trying to avoid. But Kate’s disguise only stays up for so long. Enjoying the rich, open countryside of Louisiana, Kate’s spirit shines through, and it captivates Jedidiah to no end. When tragedy strikes and Jedidiah acts the hero, it is finally Kate who is by his side, guns in hand, shedding the Southern belle disguise once and for all.
When their efforts are too late, and the necessity for their marriage is lost in the dust, will Jedidiah and Kate still find a reason to drop their defenses and come together as one? The truth will be revealed under the Willow Tree.
This is a standalone story with no cliffhangers and a Happy-Ever-After ending. It is also part of the Enduring Love in Texas Series, by Emma Harper.
