Runaway Brides of the West – Book-19

by Janice Cole Hopkins


Candace Joyner gets to her destination as a mail-order bride to find that her intended owns a saloon with working girls upstairs. He also runs the town where there’s no church or honest sheriff. Learning that he might eventually expect her to work for him, she hides under the tarp of a mountain man’s wagon when he leaves town with his winter supplies. She’s watched Jude Mason, and he appears to be kind and most likely a Christian. She’d rather take her chances with him than with the dictatorial, unscrupulous saloon owner. But life on the mountain in the winter is tougher than she imagined.

Jude is stunned when he gets home to find a stowaway in his wagon. The beautiful woman seems to have no idea of how confined they’d be in his small cabin over the brutal winter. He hoped God’s promise not to tempt us more than we can bear applied to him, and right now it did. He’s so angry he’d like to throttle the woman.
