A spinster, a bootlegger…an unexpected chance at love. Leaving the safety of her old life, Prudence Walker rides The Bride Train west to the end of the line…her last chance at matrimony.

Arch Childers longs to put down roots, only he’s too busy managing his family’s illegal whiskey business to pursue his dreams. Deciding he needs help, his troublemaking brothers kidnap a spinster lady and present her, bound and gagged, as his bride. To protect her reputation and keep his brothers out of jail, Arch does the only honorable thing and offers marriage. Prudence isn’t immune to the charming scoundrel, but a bootlegger is the last man on earth she would marry. That is, until Arch sacrifices his freedom to save her… Tempting Prudence is Book 3 in an exciting new mail-order bride series…with a twist. Called “compelling” and “everything I want in a Western Romance,” these books are sure to please readers who enjoy humorous, heartfelt romance set in the rough, but real, American West. Get on board with The Bride Train series from award-winning author E.E. Burke.

  1. Kidnapped what a tempting read. Loved it Another wonderful read by Ms. Burke this is one author that knows how to pull her readers in giving you a story that makes you smile with a touch of everything a good romance write can give. Finding a bride isn’t always easy when it is 10 to 1 odds it is even hard when you are so busy making a living trying to keep your family alive that you do not even have time to check out the newest brides to be that came on the train. What does one do when ones brother can’t find the time well…

  2. I simply love E.E. BURKE’S Bride Train series. Prudence Walker has been settling in pretty well at the Centralia Settlement in Southeastern Kansas when she is abducted right from the hotel kitchen where she has been working and thrown into a coffin on the back of a wagon. Terrified out of her wits, Prudence has no idea if she will survive. The spinster had high hopes of finding herself a husband when she arrived on the Bride Train but as the other woman before her have found their Happily Ever Afters, Prudence still is searching…

  3. An amazingly entertaining Mail-Order Train Bride! The saga continues! Beautiful read!! Tempting Prudence by E. E. Burke is a charming American Western. Book 3 in the exciting “The Bride Train ” series, but can be read as a stand alone. I would highly recommend reading the series in its entirety, however, it is not necessary to enjoy “Tempting Prudence”.
