A Sweet and Clean Western Historical Romance about Mail-Order Brides set in Montana.

Emma Byrne grew up in a Catholic orphanage in Boston, and her prospects are limited. She and her group of girlfriends, who all met in the orphanage, are barely getting by, working as nannies, cooks, and live-in maids for rich families. When Emma's employer, Gerald, threatens her with losing her job if she doesn't submit to his very unwanted advances, she stumbles onto an opportunity to be a mail-order bride and decides that couldn't possibly be worse.

Except that the groom in question had no idea that his brother sent for a wife. When Emma shows up, at the train station in Bozeman, MT, it's her groom's brother, Joshua that is there to greet her. As it turns out, Ethan is furious that his brother went behind his back and sent for a wife. He's still grieving from the unexpected death of his wife Allison only a year earlier, and spends all his time when he's not working, being a good dad to his only child, Emily, who is three.

Montana is hugely different from Boston, and Emma is surprised that she immediately falls in love with the area. Though taken aback at first to discover that Ethan wasn't aware that she was coming, she's secretly relieved to have a little time to get to know him and her new home. She is also quite fascinated by his family. Ethan is the oldest of ten, and has eight brothers, and except for Joshua, all are single. Emma has an urge to play matchmaker, and in book two, her best friend, Julia comes West to meet the brothers.

Ricky Donovan is the black sheep of the family. He's the most successful at business, but no one really understands what he does, or how he does it. He's a charming flirt and a regular at the local saloon. Work hard, play hard. That's Ricky. But he's also ambitious and wants to run for Mayor. His friends, successful businessmen themselves, think he has a good shot at it, but only if he gets married. He needs to work on his image and presenting himself as a family man, with a wife and possibly even a child, would help.

Ricky can be a bit impulsive as well, and decides to ask Sarah, the newest saloon girl, to marry him. Sarah is pretty and blonde and even better, she has a young son, Andrew, who is ten. It seems like the perfect solution.

And it is--sort of. Sarah is a recent widow, who accepted the saloon girl job as a last resort, when no other job opportunities were available in her native Philadelphia. The position includes living quarters for her and her son, a tiny, cramped apartment above the saloon. Sarah accepts Ricky's proposal as a business arrangement that will benefit them both. Until she realizes that not everyone in town thinks that marrying a saloon girl is a good idea, and she's afraid that she might be more of a liability, than an asset, to Ricky.

There are several local men who would love to marry her, as there is a serious shortage of women in Bozeman, MT in the 1890's. Elizabeth has seen her own brothers send for mail-order brides. Emma was the first young woman to move East from Boston to marry Ethan. Several of Emma's friends followed, Julia, Colleen, Brianna, Maeve and Fiona.

Theirs was an innocent, but strong love and their future seemed all but certain to Elizabeth, until something terrible happened. No one has ever said exactly what he supposedly did, but Julian was sent away, when Elizabeth was just thirteen. Her family said it was for the best, given what happened and it was made clear to her that should he ever return, Elizabeth would be strictly forbidden from having anything to do with him.

Elizabeth thought she'd put Julian out of her mind, considered him gone and part of her past. But when he suddenly returns, all the familiar feelings surface and what she is finally told that he has done, doesn't reconcile with the person standing before her. Elizabeth is determined to uncover the truth, to prove that Julian is the man she believes him to be.
