Taming Clay

By Raeann Blake / Genre: Romance / Rating: 4.3 out of 5 stars

Taming Clay

Surly didn’t begin to describe Clay Cardell. A lifetime of experience taught him not to love and never to trust, but he desperately needed a business manager. What he got was a spunky, high-tempered woman who tilted his world more than a little off-center. But if he had learned anything in his life, it was to not expect her to stick around. You don’t trust a woman, any woman, to not just disappear.

Hailey Lambert just needed a shot. Montana was a long way from New Mexico and she just needed one chance to prove she could do the job. She was warned that Clay Cardell would not be the easiest man to work for. After their initial meeting she thought they might have understated that just a tad. The fact that her heart did some kind of somersault when she first saw him didn’t really concern her. If she could deal with the man’s attitude, she could certainly deal with some little physical reaction. Right? Well… maybe not.

Abby: Mail Order Bride

By Verna Clay / Genre: Romance / Rating: 4.3 out of 5 stars

Abby: Mail Order Bride

Brant Samson has fallen on hard times with the death of his beloved wife a year earlier from lung fever. Left with three children, he’s desperate to find a mother for them. Ten year old Jenny does her best to care for two year old Ty, and fourteen year old Luke works the ranch with his father, losing himself in dime novels to ease the pain of his mother’s death. Brant’s options are limited since eligible women seldom pass through Two Rivers, much less settle in the small Texas town. In desperation, he places a classified advertisement for a mail order bride. Marrying a woman he’ll come to know through a newspaper ad scares the bejesus out of him, but at this point, he’s out of options.

Abigail Mary Vaughn always dreamed of having her own family, but caring for her elderly parents, as well as working as a teacher to help with finances, ended that dream. Her parents are now dead and she’s faced with the reality of her dismal existence. After reading Mr. Samson’s advertisement in the Philadelphia Inquirer, she garners enough courage to respond. Since she is considered an old maid at the age of thirty-eight, she’ll more than likely spend the rest of her life in gut-wrenching loneliness unless she does something unconventional.
