A Marshal for Christmas by P. Creeden

A lonely and abused woman without a home. A Marshal who is given the sudden responsibility of two children. A mail-order bride situation that has fallen to ruin. Can Lottie find a home and a family by Christmas?

December 1880
When Lottie Reiner lost her father in the war, her mother fell to pieces. At the young age of eleven, Lottie began caring for her catatonic mother. But when both her mother and grandfather pass away months apart, Lottie becomes nothing but a burden to her family. Her grandmother pushes Lottie to get married before it’s too late. But Lottie is a twenty-seven-year-old spinster with no experience raising children. Isn’t it already too late?

Deputy US Marshal Archer King comes from a family of law keepers. His father was a US Marshal, and his mother worked as a Pinkerton Agent with Kate Warne. When his only sister passed on in childbirth, his brother-in-law swore he could care for the children on his own. And Archer was to check in on them, but in almost two years, he’s neglected that duty to his sister. When the father, Sam Hodge, goes missing, he finds out exactly what kind of dire situation the children have been subject to.

After being turned out of her home, Lottie heads to Durant, Oklahoma, where Sam Hodge and his two children live, in the hopes of becoming a new wife and mother. Only the mail-order situation does not turn out the way Lottie had hoped, and many of the things that Sam had told her in his letters turn out to be lies. The only thing true is the children, and Lottie is fast becoming attached to them. But what will happen when Sam is found? Will she have the opportunity to get a home and a family before Christmas?



Christmas in July in Australia

Christmas in July is also called Yulefest or Yuletide here in Australia.

It is celebrated in this month because July is normally the coldest month on the calendar for us. It is nice for us to be able to celebrate this special occasion in similar conditions to what our friends in the Northern Hemisphere do on December 25th when it is winter.

Hearty foods, roast dinner, warm drinks and toasty open fires (boosted by central heating in some cases). In the last few years it has become quite popular with more and more people celebrating it now.

A Family for Christmas Cover Reveal

I recently told you about a new series I was invited into called Spinster Mail-Order Brides.

I was asked to write a second book to fill a gap. A Family for Christmas is that book.

Every book in the Spinster Mail-Order Brides series is standalone. There are six books in the series, and the first one releases on July 9. (Watch this blog for details of all books – coming soon.)

Here’s the blurb for this book:

Twenty-eight year old Magdalena Roth had already agreed to become a mail order bride before tragedy struck and she found herself the mother of a small baby.
Jacob Carruthers had arranged for a mail order bride, and Miss Roth sounded perfect. Never in his wildest dreams did he believe he would have not only a wife, but a family for Christmas.
Can these two strangers make their marriage work, especially with an unexpected baby?

As with all my other books, this is a clean and wholesome romance. Most of my historical romances are set in the Victorian era, and this one is no different.

Releases July 23. Pre-Order Your Copy Now!


Bachelor and Babies Series (Book 2) – Margaret Tanner

What would you do if you were a bachelor and found a discarded baby in the 1800’s?

Take it into the nearest town? Take it to an orphanage? Give it to some woman to care for. Or keep it and try to bring it up yourself?

In the 14 book, Bachelor and Babies Series, this is what has happened. Single men find themselves with an abandoned baby to care for. Each bachelor handles it in his own unique way.

My bachelor, Logan, decides to keep the baby he has found discarded in the wilderness of South Dakota.

This story is at times humorous, sad and poignant in equal measure as Logan, who has had no experience with babies, struggles to give this little one a decent home.

As in all love stories it does have the mandatory HEA ending.
