Mail Order Bride--Coming soon

Mail Order Bride



Whoever heard of a mail-order bride in the 21st century?  Julianne Dawson had mixed emotions driving across the country to marry the cowboy she remembered from summers at her uncle’s ranch. Anxious to leave her former life behind, is she delusional in thinking that being a rancher’s wife would offer her the life she wants?
Desperate actions needed to keep the family ranch.  No one in their right mind sends off for a bride he’s doesn’t know–not in this day and age.  Yet Blake Reynolds does exactly that.  He’ll do anything to keep the family ranch–even marry a virtual stranger–as long as she can produce a child within the year.
Can a marriage of convenience for both the bride and groom end in happiness for either, or is necessity the only driving force in this arrangement?

A note from Barbara

Welcome to my website!

So glad you stopped by. I hope you’ll explore all of my website to learn about the romance novels I’ve written and a bit about me.  After years of writing contemporary romance novels, I ventured into an historical one, set in the English Regency period, and another experiment with a romantic suspense book

It’s been said my books are emotionally heartfelt romance stories. I like to think I touch the heart of my characters and share their ups and downs on the rocky road to true happiness. Cowboys are my favorite heroes, but I also branch out to other areas and have written several romances with a Christian Inspiration theme–with more to come.

A couple of themes tie some books together.  The Cowboy Hero series always have a cowboy as the hero and are, of course, set in the American West. The Tropical Escape books have a sea setting–whether on a sloop in the Caribbean or some exotic tropical island where I tried to capture the feel of sea breezes, warm waters and love.  And my Rocky Point books are all set in the fictitious town of Rocky Point, Maine.

Do check out some excerpts from different books. I hope you’ll find one or two that catch your fancy.

Let’s keep in touch. You can follow me on Facebook and Twitter.  Please sign up for my Readers Group and I’ll let you know when I have new books coming out.  And write and let me know how you like the books. I’d love to hear from you.
