Blooms of the West Trilogy
Book 1 in Blooms of the West
Carnival beauty, Sukey Ledbetter is not the marrying kind. She’s forced to take on a temporary alias as a mail-order bride in order to escape her treacherous uncle who is after her fortunes and intent on locking her up in the lunatic asylum. Nothing prepares her, however, for the sight of the rugged cowboy who’s to escort her to her supposed-betrothed. Her escort is Coltrane Bloom, a man more powerfully compelling than any she had ever encountered.
As a favor to his best friend, love-’em-and-leave-’em Coltrane Bloom agrees to journey to Sweetwater Springs to retrieve his friend’s mail-order bride. But when he realizes she’s a phony, his mission changes– reveal who the beautiful charlatan really is. Mystified by her secrets, touched by her tender nature, Coltrane is drawn to her. The irony isn’t lost on him when he must convince Sukey she is the marrying kind… as long as she marries him!

Olivia Brown was Avonaco Bloom’s best friend’s younger sister and off limits. For years she followed them like a puppy. Then, suddenly she was older and Avon didn’t know how to accept this budding woman, especially when she told him she loved him. He dismissed her declaration, saying she was too young to know such things. He left on a scouting job with the army and when he returned he discovered she had married his family’s enemy, a Stark.
Now she’s an elusive divorced woman with shadows in those gorgeous eyes. Men still flock to her, although he has a feeling it’s for more than her comely appearance. Can he convince her to confide in him, to trust him again not only with her well-being, but especially with the love he so carelessly tossed aside?
