Authors Showcase: Mail Order Groom by Dana Wayne

A world-weary Southern gentleman, a fiery, independent woman—a marriage of convenience was only the beginning.

“Find a husband in thirty days or lose the ranch when I die.”

Emma Marshall is stunned by her dying father’s ultimatum. With Twin Oaks to run alone, she delays dealing with it, unaware of the advertisements he placed seeking a groom for her.

One by one, prospects arrive, spurred by the promise of control of a prosperous ranch and a beautiful bride. Angry, embarrassed and heartbroken by her father’s tactics, she fights for her independence.

Tyler Roundtree acts on a request from his best friend and accepts the job of temporary foreman at the Marshall place. Surprised to find his new boss is a beautiful, jean-wearing, gun-toting woman with enough grit to go bear hunting with a switch, he happily accepts the job.

Distracted by persistent suitors and a dangerous man intent on getting control of her ranch, Emma is totally unprepared for the instant attraction to Ty. Thrown together by chance, she can’t help but wonder if he may be the answer to her problem. However, it soon becomes clear she knows everything about running a ranch, and nothing about being a woman.

A world-weary Southern gentleman, a fiery, independent woman—a marriage of convenience was only the beginning.

Review by Caleb Pirtle III:

Stories in the Old West are legion about mail order brides who are brought to a vast empty landscape to bring a sense of order and comfort, perhaps even love, to lonely men fighting for survival in a country that refuses to be tamed or civilized. But what happens when a beautiful and desperate woman learns she must find a husband or lose her ranch?

Only Dana Wayne knows, and, just like her defiant heroine in Mail Order Groom, she has the heart, the spirit, the courage to weave a story not quite like anything you have ever read before. There are no easy roads for her characters to take. They battle a harsh land and each other. Their emotions boil and spill over.

There is no love lost between the cowboy and the lady until they awaken one day and find it. Dana Wayne’s characters don’t live on a printed page. They live in your heart for a long time.
