Why do I write historicals? For me, it’s because I love horses and always have. I grew up watching westerns, and I just can’t get them out of my mind or imagination. I love the notion of the Wild West, the freedom of riding over the plains, and the idea of exploring new lands and forging out a life in a new place.
So that’s a little about me. Patricia PacJac Carroll and why I write what I do. Today, I wanted to introduce you to one of my series set in Montana in the 1880s.
Second Chances ~ who doesn’t love them!
The Judge’s Bride ~ Book 1 of Montana Brides of Solomon’s Valley
You know, circumstances have made a mess out of your life. Oh, all right, perhaps we have had a hand in the mess, but this story is more about two people who decide to make the best of the mess they find themselves in.
Rachel had been happily married. Yes, they struggled on their farm in Minnesota, but they and their ten children were happy until the unthinkable happens and Rachel finds herself a widow. The farm would go to pay taxes. That was bad enough. But now she was at risk of not only losing the farm but her youngest children when well-meaning townsfolk decide she couldn’t provide for her large family.
Desperate, she answers an ad for a mail order bride. Her bid to save her family goes unnoticed by all but one man, Judge Solomon Taggart in Montana. Desperate to keep her children, she accepts his offer, but chooses not to tell him how many children she has.
Judge Solomon Taggart had everything. He practically owned Solomon’s Valley. Did own the biggest ranch. Add some gold mines and he had it all. Except a family. His wife and daughter had died of the fever years ago. He was lonely. And had no one to leave his vast holdings to. Desperate for a family, he replied to an ad for mail order brides. One ad caught his eye. The woman said she had children. Didn’t say how many, but one or two would be nice. Besides, he had his hands full trying to keep peace between two feuding families in the valley.
I hope you’ll enjoy this story of love’s second chances. The Judge’s Bride is Book 1 of
Montana Brides of Solomon’s Valley series.
Have you taken advantage of a second chance?
Have you known a family involved in a feud?
*** I’ll give away one ebook of The Judge’s Bride (Kindle Version)
