Half-Price Bride

by Laurean Brooks

Half-Price Bride

To escape a contentious relationship, Emily Hammons answers a mail-order bride ad from a dentist in Abilene. Arriving a day late, she is shocked to find him exchanging vows with another woman.

Handsome rancher, Clint McCall came to town to fetch the doctor, but Doc is attending a wedding. As he waits outside the church, the bride tears out, slamming a pretty brunette into him. Clint tries to steady her, but loses his balance, becoming a cushion for her fall.

With an injured foot and an empty purse, Emily accepts Clint’s offer to care for his ailing mother.

Clint has arguments to back his opinion of mail-order brides. His mother suffered years of abuse at the hand of an angry man when she answered an ad.

With no relatives in Abilene, why did Emily travel more than 600 miles from Memphis? Clint feels she is hiding something.

The dentist in on the hunt for his “other” bride. Will he find Emily? Will Clint’s love be strong enough to endure Emily’s secret, or will it destroy them?
