.
Historical Romance set in 1878 Centennial, Wyoming. Think of Nicole Kidman in "Far & Away" and Daniel Day Lewis in "The Last of the Mohicans" and you've got the physical heroine and hero from this novel. Bestselling author, Pamela Morsi says, "(this story) is a heartwarming blend of sincerity, sauciness, and superstition." The plot revolves around Kathleen Lacey O'Carroll, a cloistered Irish woman who knew she faced an uncertain future when she arrived in Wyoming as a mail-order bride--especially when she learned that the man she was to marry hadn't actually ordered her! Laughter and tears abound as Lacey tries to convince half-Araphoe, Hawke, that he does indeed need a wife--her.
Sizzle rating: Spicy!
