Spinster Mail-Order Brides Series – Book One

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.

New Mail Order Bride Series!

Cover Reveal!

For those of you following my Mail Order Brides of Dayton Falls series, this book is a prequel to that series.
A Bride for Christmas is part of a new multi-author mail order bride series, and because Post Master Pete is mentioned in at least two of my Dayton Falls books, and plays a bigger part in book four, the latest book, I thought it was time he had his own story.
It is completely stand alone, so if you haven’t read that series, you won’t be lost. (All the books in this new series are totally stand alone.)
This book is currently on pre-order and releases July 11.

The Blacksmith’s Reluctant Bride is Live!

The day has finally arrived! The Blacksmith’s Reluctant Bride is now live.

This is book four in the Mail Order Brides of Dayton Falls, and I loved writing this story as much as I did the other three books in the series.

I love the familiarity of the town and the characters who have been introduced in previous books.

I also love bringing in new characters, and letting them get to know each other, building their relationship and the trust between them.

I especially love giving them the happy ever after they so very much deserve.
