Next on our list, we have The Bridal Swap by Karen Kirst. Karen is also a newer author. Her first book, The Reluctant Outlaw released last fall, and now she's got another novel in her Smokey Mountain Matches series. I haven't read either of these yet, but I do have The Bridal Swap on my to-be-read list for March. Here's a little more about the book:
The heiress Josh O'Malley has courted by mail is on her way to Gatlinburg, Tennessee, to become his wife. His dreams are coming true, and together, they'll create the family he's always wanted. But when the stagecoach arrives, it's not his intended who exits, but her sister, Kate!
She came to end her sister's engagement, but with her duty completed, Kate Morgan is in no hurry to leave. She can't help but like the beautiful mountain town…and her sister's would-be groom. If only Josh would realize that his dream can still come true—and love can be found where least expected.
And finally, we have tried and true Love Inspired Historical author Linda Ford, with her novel The Cowboy Comes Home:
Security and a home of her own—that's Sally Morgan's dream. And a new job could offer both. Her employer will marry her if she proves her worth as housekeeper. A sensible—if unromantic—plan. Until a lean, laid-back cowboy moves in next door…and "sensible" moves right out!
Linc McCoy and his family left town years ago under a cloud of suspicion. A cowboy with a tarnished name has nothing to offer a woman like Sally. Except for a spark of kinship neither can deny. And the growing hope that two guarded hearts might learn to trust in a power greater than them both.
So whether you're looking for a story set in the Scottish highlands or in the old west, I hope you'll enjoy one of these novels this month.
