I liked it! Sophia’s Leap-Year Courtship by Kristen Holt was engaging to read. Sophia and Chadwick, both single and unsure, find themselves unpredictably thrown together. A great story line, strong characters and everything I enjoy in a well written, entertaining novel. I thought the character of Thomas Fisher added authenticity to the frontier town setting, despite his incredibly annoying involvement in the plot. I received a complimentary copy of Sophia’s Leap-Year Courtship for my candid review.
Mail Order Bride is the newest release in A Timeless Romance Anthology. Authors Stacy Henrie, Kristin Holt, Annette Lyon, Sarah M. Eden, Heather B. Moore, and Sian Ann Bessey have created a captivating and eclectic collection of six historical romance novellas to entertain us.
Focusing on the plight and often flight of mail order brides, these award-winning authors have written stories that both delight and bring to life a historical period where love sometimes comes second to finding a wife. Using creative plots and strong, authentic characters the authors show us a variety of compelling motives behind placing an advertisement for a mail order bride for the men, and for answering a mail order bride advertisement for the women.
While reading these genuine stories, I enjoyed learning about the mail order bride period in US history, and how people found happiness amid unknown outcomes and less than ideal circumstances. Heather B. Moore gave me a complimentary copy of Mail Order Bride for my candid review.
