Men are nothing but trouble. So why is this one so irresistible?
Josephine Carter is done with men. A runaway father, her mother’s lecherous "admirers," the man she thought she’d marry abandoning her and taking all their money with him . . . none of them are any good.
Trouble is, she’s now alone, penniless, and worst of all, pregnant.
Her only solution is to become a mail order bride, travel across the country to California, and convince her new husband that the baby is his. What could be simpler? Plenty, as it turns out, when she discovers love is more important to her than she thought, and giving herself to a man she doesn’t care for proves downright impossible.
But in the midst of an uncertain future, Jo might just find the hero she’s not looking for. And the salvation she never knew she needed.
Five mail order brides, one small Californian town, a lot of romance! The Escape to the West series tells the stories of five young women in 1870 who travel across the country to find love. These uplifting Christian historical romances will transport you to a time of courageous women longing for a better life and the strong men dedicated to winning their hearts. Each novel can be read on its own or as part of the series.
