I received this ARC from the publisher for a fair and honest review.

Excerpt:

Valerie Carmichael needed a drink. A strong one. Because it was the only way she envisioned herself getting through the night.
An elbow nudged into her side, bringing her thoughts back to the crowded bar. “I can’t see anything through all of these people,” Brett said, scanning the room with his eyes. “Come on, let’s go to the other side so I can get a better view.”
Sighing, Valerie trudged behind him without a word.
When Brett had asked her to attend the grand opening of Bottoms Up, a new bar in their hometown of Granite, Texas, she’d hesitated to say yes. Sure, she was curious what the inside of the recently remodeled bar looked like and had no doubt the place would be jam-packed with handsome, available men. But it was still the last place on earth she wanted to be.
She knew better than to hang out in bars with her older and only—thank God—brother. Every time she’d done so in the past, the nights had always ended the same way. Brett would spend the entire evening hovering over her like a rabid pit bull, daring any single guy with a glint in his eye to look her way. Because Valerie turned heads. She always had.
Oh, she wasn’t silly enough to believe she looked like some gorgeous supermodel with a lean, trim figure or anything. She definitely didn’t. But she had a pretty face, banging plus-size curves, and a lively personality. And that was good enough for her. Valerie was just…Valerie. And damn proud of it.
Across the room, Sam and Leah emerged from the dense crowd, with a beer bottle for him and a glass of water for her. Apparently, Leah was still on that damn diet and counting calories so she would fit into her wedding dress. Though why she didn’t just buy the dress in a larger size was beyond Valerie.
Leah blinked at the sight of her. “Val? What are you doing here? You said you weren’t coming.”
Valerie shrugged. “I changed my mind.”
“Are you feeling okay?”
“Yeah, sure. Why?”
“When you said you didn’t want to go out, I assumed you were sick. You never turn down a night out.” Leah placed her palm lightly against Valerie’s forehead. “You sure you don’t have the flu or something?”
Valerie laughed and pushed her friend’s hand away. “Oh, stop it. I just didn’t feel like getting dressed up. I’m getting tired of the whole bar scene.”
Then Valerie’s heart stopped, along with her lips. Oh God.
Brett stood there talking to a tall, dark-haired man who had one thumb hooked in the front pocket of his jeans while he leaned comfortably against the wall with his right shoulder. She couldn’t see the other guy’s face, but she didn’t need to. Valerie recognized all six feet, two inches of him. Logan Mathis.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Alison Bliss grew up in Small Town, Texas, but currently resides in the Midwest with her husband and two sons. With so much testosterone in her home, it’s no wonder she writes “girl books.” She believes the best way to know if someone is your soul mate is by canoeing with them because if you both make it back alive, it’s obviously meant to be. Alison pens the type of books she loves to read most: fun, steamy love stories with heart, heat, laughter, and usually a cowboy or two. As she calls it, “Romance…with a sense of humor.”

Author Info:

MKCO
MK Meredith writes single title contemporary romance novels which promise an emotional ride on heated sheets. A member of several writing groups, she believes the best route to success is to never stop learning.

She’s had a lifelong love affair with peanut butter — the only two things coming close in the battle for her affections are gorgeous heels, and maybe Gerard Butler…or was it David Gandy? Who is she kidding? Her true loves are her husband and two children who have survived her SEA’s (spontaneous explosions of affection) and live to tell the tale.

MK’s been reading romance long before she should have and can’t think of anything better than to fill her life with the promise of happily-ever-afters. When people ask, “Why romance?” She replies, “There is nothing more exhilarating than to write about one of the most powerful entities on earth. Love can be the fall of kingdoms and move mountains, destroy lives and create new life, inspire the dark and summon the light. Love is a challenge, a hope, and a miracle all wrapped into one. Love is life. I write about life.”

The Meredith’s live in the D.C. area with their two large fur babies…until the next adventure calls.

Esther, An Easter Bride was released on 4/18/17
Amazon KU Link:  https://amzn.to/2n2K9UE

Official Blurb:  Unrealistic expectations can lead two people down a trail to despair.

After the untimely death of her husband, Esther Wilmington must choose between pauper’s life as a poor widow in Philadelphia or a marriage of convenience to her late husband’s son. However, she is presented with a third option she couldn’t have imagined: moving west as a mail order bride.

Elias Jones likes the idea of a wife but quickly discovers how complicated it is to share his home, his bed, and his life with someone. Perhaps he was hasty in marrying. But he soon realizes he cannot imagine a life without his new bride.

Excerpt from Esther, An Easter Bride

Making their way back to the table, Esther was fully aware of his gaze upon her. Before she could sit, he took her elbow. “Esther, how do you feel about marrying me?”
The question took her by surprise. Did it matter at this point if she wished to change her mind? The thought of anything but acquiescence had not occurred to her.
“I am not sure what to say…how to respond.”
He looked to the floor and, at once, alarm filled her. Was he on the brink of telling her he’d changed his mind?
“I’m curious, that’s all.”
“Oh. Well, I’m both excited and nervous. But I do look forward to a future here in Montana…with…you.”
When he swallowed visibly, it did not reassure her. Finally, his gaze met hers. Before she could say anything, he leaned forward and kissed her fully on the lips.
The kiss was like no other. At least not that she could remember. Even her first kiss with her late husband had not awoken so many feelings or sent her blood to rush with so much intensity that it thundered in her ears.
He cupped her face with one hand while his arm wrapped around her waist, bringing her against him. Esther held his shoulders, willing herself not to tug him closer. With each movement, Elias brought her more alive and, finally, she wrapped her arms around his neck and pressed her length against him.
Something sounded in the distance or perhaps in the room. She had no concept of anything other than the man in whose arms she’d melted. When Elias lifted, his darkened eyes bore into hers and she could finally regain some sort of sensibility.
She wanted to continue to stay lost in his eyes, but he hugged her against him and rested his face against her temple. “I look forward to marrying you, Esther. I have a feeling we’re well suited.”

Lucille, A Lucky Bride was released on 3/14/17
Amazon KU Link: https://amzn.to/2pGiVSe

Official Blurb:  A beautiful woman arrives during the worst time of his life.

Lucille Ash travels west with her mistress expecting to continue a life of servitude. However, her entire existence changes upon arriving in Montana. No longer a maid, she is free to make choices about her future. One thing she’s certain of is that she will never choose the infuriating Tobias as her husband.

Through the haze of sorrow after losing his mother, Tobias Hamilton still notices the stunning new woman in town and decides to marry her. When he announces his intentions, the feisty woman swiftly rejects him. How to convince her of his true feelings when he is not sure himself?

Although transformation can happen, sometimes it takes more strength than one can ever imagine.

Excerpt from Lucille:

“Thinking about hanging yourself?” The amused voice was accompanied by musical laughter.
Lucille’s eyes sparkled with mirth when he turned to her. To keep from allowing a smile, he pressed his lips together. “Doesn’t sound like you’d mourn my death.”
“Hmm,” she replied noncommittally and neared the stall. “What, do tell, is the reason for you looking gloomier than usual?”
“Watching this mare with her offspring. She was restless until I let her come back inside.” He didn’t expect her to understand, but elaborated anyway. “Mothers, they provide love and support even after their offspring don’t need them to sustain life. This colt is old enough to do for itself.”
Lucille neared, bringing with her a soft floral scent, which he inhaled deep into his lungs. Reaching for the mare, she slid her hand over its mane. “Hey there, Lady. The mean man doesn’t understand you does he?”
“I am not mean. She will eventually have to be separated from…”
“Why? I think you should consider letting them stay together. What can it hurt?”
He let out a sigh and had to admit that he liked to spar verbally with her.
“I understand you are mourning, yet…” She looked to him for a moment. “Do you know how blessed you are to have had your mother for as many years as you did? The people in the house, what about them? You should relish your time with your siblings. Family is very important.”
Ire flowed wide and thick until Tobias couldn’t hold back. “If family is so important, then why did you come so far away from yours? Obviously, the support you could give and receive did not matter as much as whoever you left back east.”
Her eyes narrowed and, for a moment, he thought she’d slap him. When she focused on him there was mirth instead of anger. “You are an ignorant man. I came here with Aurora because she is the only family I have. Of course I would not leave if I had parents or siblings back home, which I have neither by the way.” She huffed, placing her hands on both hips and tapping one foot. “I came out here to find you for supper. Time to eat.”
“I owe you an apology. I should have thought before speaking.” Regret settled onto his chest demanding he make things right.
Lucille lifted a brow. “You owe me two apologies. One for the inexcusable marriage demand and another for assuming I gave no forethought before moving here.”
“I’m sorry, Lucille.” He considered reaching for her. Instead, he crossed and uncrossed his arms. “Please accept my apologies for both.”
“You need to consider how much you want something and then strive for it. Enjoy life, else you’re wasting air.”
“I have to say, you have quite a way with words.”
Lucille held up her right hand, palm away from him and waved him closer. “Lean forward.” He did as she asked, careful not to lean too close.
“Closer, lower, you’re quite tall.”
If the woman planned to slap him or break his nose with a punch, he’d allow it. However, one hit was his limit. After that, he’d stop her and leave.
She placed a hand on each side of his face and looked directly into his eyes. Tobias held his breath. It was the first time a woman had done this and he wasn’t sure what to think.
Lucille kept the eye contact. “If you wish to marry me, Tobias Hamilton, I suggest you decide if I’m really the woman for you. I will tell you this. I plan to marry and it will be to a man who both desires me and accepts me just the way I am.”
She pulled his face even closer and pressed her lips over his. The kiss lingered until he was just about to close his eyes. Then she abruptly moved back.
As if he were a child, she patted his left shoulder. “Think about it, Tobias. Supper should be ready shortly.”
The swish of her skirts and curvy figure kept his rapt attention until she walked out of sight. It was then he finally gulped in air.

Aurora, A Romantic Bride was released on 2/14/17

Amazon KU Link: https://amzn.to/2pGHFtq

Official Blurb: Sacrifice comes at great cost to a young woman forced to marry and save her family from ruin.

Aurora Middleton loses her best friend and a chance of love at the same time.  When confronted with how horrible her life will become, she makes a decision that brings a monumental change.  Moving west, leaving all she’s ever known will either be a fresh start or the beginning of something worse.

Evan Jones left his life of high society firmly back east.  Now the small town doctor has a comfortable life in the Laurel, Montana.  When a storm hits, he offers Aurora Middleton and her friend a place to stay all the time resenting the attraction he feels to a woman that reminds him of a life he’d purposely left in the past.

Excerpt from Aurora:

Two knocks sounded at the back door. Before Evan could open the door, Aurora walked in. Cheeks flushed, she looked to Filbert who didn’t bother to look to her. Instead, his gaze remained on the basket she carried.

Aurora met Evan’s gaze. “I brought food. You didn’t finish eating.”

It was surprising that she’d thought enough to bring him dinner. Evan wondered if it was her idea. It seemed to him that she’d have sent the other woman, Lucille, to do her bidding and not bring the food herself. Then again, it could be an attempt to set things right between them since he offered her and Lucille a place to stay.

Her eyes were reddened and he wondered if the lovely woman had cried or perhaps it was due to the bitter cold.

“Thank you.” He took the basket from her and went to a small table. “I was just about to come to get some food to ensure he eats. This is more than enough for both of us.”

In all honesty, he did not plan to eat much. Any desire for food had dwindled at her presence. It wasn’t that he disliked people, but Evan looked forward to time alone at home. Most days, he was around people; sick townsfolk who complained, whined and cried. It was rare that anyone was glad to see him. Evan always looked forward to evenings when he could relax and get away from all the negativity. Guests only meant no alone time.

He scowled and Aurora seemed to shrink backwards. “Do you need more food?”

“No, thank you. This is fine.” In the basket was a plate piled with food, bread and a jug, which he assumed had coffee. “Thank you. You should go on back and rest. I know the trip here is hard.”

“Yes, Lucille and I are about to go to bed. Before sleeping, I wanted to ensure you didn’t need anything.” She neared and her lips curved into a soft smile. “Thank you so very much for allowing us to stay at your house. Lucille and I appreciate it very much.”

Evan liked the sound of her voice, soft with a husky edge to it that made him want to close his eyes. She wasn’t a shy woman, that much he could tell. However, she didn’t seem to particularly care for him. Something about the way she looked at him, as if she knew something. Evan sensed judgment and not particularly positive speculation of his person by her.

What she based her negative ideas on was a mystery and, frankly, once she left and went to the Hamiltons’ place, it didn’t matter to him.

Besides, he had passed judgment as well. Even now, he considered her upbringing as being one raised in a lifestyle replete with pampering and being waited upon hand and foot.

She’d not helped prepare the dinner. Although he supposed there was little she could do as the woman had probably never stepped foot in a kitchen, much less learned the first thing about cooking.

“Do you cook, Miss Middleton?” Evan wasn’t sure why he asked, other than perhaps a bit of guilt for being judgmental. “I suppose it’s out of curiosity that I ask. Being your upbringing, I don’t expect you do.”

Her eyebrows rose and she blinked. “My upbringing? Sir, you do not know anything about me. I presume you ask since Lucille and I may be forced to depend on your hospitality for an indeterminate length of time.”

“No, not at all. I ask out of curiosity. I know a bit about you, yes. Wilhelmina Hamilton was most enlightening when speaking of you. She holds you in high regard.”
“And I do her.”

Her gaze swept over the clinic and, immediately, Evan could see she found it lacking. “Are all clinics so basic here?”

“Basic?”

“Rudimentary.”

“It will be a hard adjustment for you here, Miss Middleton. This clinic is quite sufficient for the town.”

She lifted a brow in disbelief.

Evan had had enough. “The reason for you coming so far must be utterly fascinating. Not that I plan to investigate further. Given your dour disposition, I imagine it won’t be long before you return to a more elevated way of life.”

The fire in her gaze seared. “I have always been described as sunny and pleasant. It could be your most disagreeable company that brings out the worst in me.”

He tapped his chin in thought. “No, I don’t believe so. That can’t be it.”

“You are an arrogant, egotistical and annoying brute with a lack of decorum and manners.” When she stormed away in a flutter of skirts and lilac, his lips curved. So it seemed Miss Middleton had a bit of a temper.
