Mail Order Bride: Westward winds: A Clean Historical Mail Order Bride Romance (Montana Mail Order Brides) (Volume 1)

A historical western cowboy romance novella about a mail order bride. ** A clean romance novella ** Tessa O’Connor lives in a world of privilege and excess. Her doting parents want her to make a good match with a worthy gentleman and live a respectable life. She is beautiful and intelligent and she comes with a hefty dowry. There is no reason that she shouldn’t be able to find an eligible man and settle down. Tessa herself is the reason. The men who are attempting to court her are, in her opinion, boring and conceited. Not only that, Tessa craves excitement and adventure, of which there is little in her social circles. By chance, she comes across an advertisement for a bride brokerage company seeking eligible women of good breeding to go west and find husbands. One man on the list catches her eye and she begins corresponding with him, eventually agreeing to go to Montana to meet him. She can’t resist the possibility of finding someone different and even if she doesn’t, the adventure itself would be worth her time. Tessa makes a successful escape and sets out to make a new life in Montana. Dean Samuels is a Montana rancher who is in over his head. His ranch is struggling and his two children are unruly and in need of a caretaker. It’s clear to his younger brother, Marcus, that he needs help. He tells Dean about a mail order bride service and convinces him that he should utilize it to find a wife. After his wife, Sarah, had passed away, Dean never intended to marry again. His ranch and his children became his life. However, it becomes apparent that Sadie, his daughter, and his son, Jack, need stability and love. The demands of raising his children and keeping his head above water financially have taken a toll and Dean grudgingly gives in to Marcus’ idea. Sarah had been the love of his life and Dean doesn’t intend to let any other woman into his heart. He’s locked those kinds of emotions deep inside, not wanting to take the chance of getting hurt like that again. Because Dean has trouble expressing his feelings in writing, his younger brother Marcus agrees to help write the letters to Tessa. Dean is happy to leave that part up to him. When Dean and Tessa meet, sparks fly between the two strong willed people. Tessa is disappointed that Dean isn’t the romantic, sophisticated man she was lead to believe he was in the letters she received. Dean is aggravated that she isn’t a meek woman who is easily managed. Never mind the fact that she has no idea of how to take care of children and keep a home. Dean and Tessa struggle to find common ground and make their marriage work. Will they each take the risk and open their hearts to one another? Can their marriage survive and will they find love and contentment in each other? Their future happiness hangs in the balance under the Montana skies.

  1. Surprisingly wonderful read. I read so many books that I normally don’t write reviews…unless it is a really bad or disappointing read. Mail Order Bride: Westward Winds: A Clean…. the title is long, is NOT either. When the title says clean, it means clean. I went a head and gave it four stars since I knew from the title there would be no spice and sizzle. However, that being said, spice and sizzle does not always have to be hot. The main characters in this book are spicy in a sweet way and do sizzle with a warmth…

  2. I love Linda Bridey’s clean wonderful romance books. I have loved all of Linda Bridey mail order bride books as the stories are great and I don’t have to read sexcual content. I really appreciate her putting (clean) as the rating on her books and they are. I can let my imagination go where it wants to go and not have to read cuss words and sex on any of her pages. My thanks go out to Linda Bridey for her great books and please keep them clean stories coming my way.

  3. Mail Order Bride: Westward Winds I loved this book. I was looking for something that I could read in an afternoon and chose this book. I really like a good story that does not use sex as a filler. It was a wonderful story of people caring for one another and finding love (no porno needed). My heartfelt thanks to this author. I will continue reading her books if they are all like this (without the sex). Thank you again.
