#NewRelease -- A MAIL-ORDER CHRISTMAS BRIDE -- #Giveaway!

What could be better this holiday season than a warm fire, a cozy chair and a heartwarming collection of mail-order bride Christmas stories? A MAIL-ORDER CHRISTMAS BRIDE includes eight wonderful reads by some of your favorite authors.
 Livia J Washburn kicks off the anthology with her story, KISSING UNTIL CHRISTMAS, about a mail-order bride who isn’t exactly what she seems—but her unwilling groom hides a dangerous secret of his own.
It’s A LONG WAY FROM ST. LOUIS in Kathleen Rice Adams' story, but can a handsome Irish alley-brawler and a former debutante rekindle their romance from a decade earlier, now that circumstances have changed?
 Ella’s cryptic letter brings her husband’s brother, Caleb, home for Christmas in STORE-BOUGHT ORNAMENTS by Patti Sherry-Crews. Can they finally claim the love they’ve been denied for so long?
 Secrets and surprises are in store when families meddle with a beautiful single mother and an outlaw-turned-respectable in Tanya Hanson’s story. Phoebe Pierce may have too many secrets of her own to keep HER HOLIDAY HUSBAND…
An earthquake lands a young woman backward in time in her great-great aunt’s southwestern home. Jesse J Elliot’s story of a TIMELESS love that will prevail, no matter what century, is one you won’t forget!
In this tale by Meg Mims, will it be true love or a HOLIDAY HOAX for these mail-order brides who are traveling together? When they “switch” grooms in Holliday, Nebraska, will things work out for the best, or will they end up ruining their futures?
 Hec Murdock orders up two brides for himself and his brother, Zeke. But somehow, he neglects to let Zeke know what he’s done. I HEARD THE BRIDES ON CHRISTMAS DAY is classic Jacquie Rogers-style fun with a humorous, heartwarming ending!
 Can a jaded lawman from Indian Territory and a debutante on the run manage to find their own “happily-ever-after” in A MARRIAGE OF CONVENIENCE? Cheryl Pierson’s tale pits a young woman against a monster, with only one man to protect her—a U.S. Deputy Marshal—who stands to lose his heart—or his life. 
 Prairie Rose Publications is proud to bring you another wonderful collection of Christmas tales for your reading pleasure!   A MAIL-ORDER CHRISTMAS BRIDE is sure to bring you hours of enjoyment.

    1. Caffey, we put out at least one Christmas anthology every year. Last year, we put out two western historical romance anthologies at Christmas (Wild Texas Christmas and Present for a Cowboy), and the year before we put out one (Wishing for A Cowboy).

      This year, we have A Mail-Order Christmas Bride and a medieval collection--One Christmas Knight. If you look back on "older posts"--that one just released on the 24th and you can read about it there.

      Thanks for coming by!

    1. Hi Debby! Yes, these are all great stories, and if you like medieval stories, check out our other Christmas anthology, One Christmas Knight. Also, we have other Christmas anthologies from years past here that are western historical collections you might have missed. All available at Amazon and B&N.

    1. Liette, the other one we put out THIS year is One Christmas Knight--a collection of medieval Christmas stories--and they are wonderful! It just released on the 24th--so if you go back to "older posts" you can read about it on the post for the 24th of November.

    1. Zina, we had so much fun with this one--lots of excellent tales about how these "mail-order" brides came to be and why they answered "the call".

    1. Shirl, mail-order brides seem to be in high demand. I wonder if it's because we all think about what would cause someone to head out to the great unknown to marry someone they'd never met?

    2. The excitement and anticipation must have been so high. The mail order bride is popular now. I love wagon train stories too. They are combined sometimes. It would be hard for the women in both back then.

    3. It would have been REALLY hard to be a woman, no matter what your circumstances, I would think. I'm not that tough! LOL

  8. All these stories sound wonderful. I look forward to reading them.

  9. I love mail-order bride books, it is my favorite genre and then next would be series or anthology books. I have my sister and daughter-in-law hooked on reading them too. I have added this to my "wish" list on Amazon and TBR list on Goodreads.

    1. You're welcome, Tina! I tell you, I love mail-order bride stories, too. I always wonder how in the world someone could leave everything behind and go west. You'd have to be adventuresome or terribly desperate, wouldn't you?

    2. There sare times in life you do what you have to do to survive. I think it would have been a great adventure.

    3. Tina, I agree. And I think that was what it had to have been for so many of these young women--just a case of HAVING to survive and anything was better than where they were.

    1. There's such a great variety of "how" these women became mail-order brides in this collection, too. That's one of the things I love about it--lots of great reading here!

  14. It looks like you've created another fine distraction for me. It's got so I don't want any of my appointments to be on time so I can sneak in a few more minutes reading away from work.

    1. LOL Alison! That's how I feel too. I have made it a habit to sit down and read when I'm eating lunch. I read a LOT as an editor, but what I read when I'm eating lunch is what I WANT to read just for escape and entertainment. Right now, I'm reading a Penelope Williams book -- not usually my time period--it takes place in the late 1600's. But it is wonderful.

  15. Hope I can win it. I want to read The Christmas Bride soon.
