Saving the Mail Order Bride book cover

He may have a high price on his head, but all outlaw Jack Bowdre ever desired was a second chance. Now he’s been arrested and on his way to jail, completely unaware that his unexpected —and unexpectedly beautiful— traveling companion is none other than Nora Kane…his mail order bride.

It’s too bad Nora doesn’t know Jack is her groom-to-be. All she sees is a scoundrel. But when their stagecoach crashes, they’re suddenly handcuffed together and running for their lives with nothing but the clothes on their backs. A posse behind and unforgiving terrain ahead, how long can they survive? Hounded by desperate men bent on stopping them by any means necessary, Nora and Jack find the love they both desperately want. But the question remains: will they have a chance to claim it?

PRAISE FOR SAVING THE MAIL ORDER BRIDE:
“Broday continues her Outlaw Mail Order Brides historical Western romance series with an interesting premise…”
— Kirkus
“The adventure and dangers kept the pages turning – delivering quite a few surprises and heart-pounding moments. And generously balanced in were moments of peace and beauty.”
– Sunshine Lake Reviews
“I loved every deep ravine-gun blazing-twist of this book.”
— Glenda (Goodreads reviewer)
“Linda Broday has spun another great adventure that is full of surprises, has you rooting for the outlaws and people of Hope’s Crossing, and wanting some ‘lawmen,’ ‘businessmen,’ and other ‘questionable men’ to find their deaths. It’ll make you question who should be called an outlaw in this period of time.”
– Stephanie (Goodreads reviewer)

Left Foot, Right Foot
Guest Post by Linda Broday
Do you remember what it was like to put your foot into the wrong shoe? Young children do this all the time. I still remember how uncomfortable it felt when I got in a hurry and wasn’t paying attention.
But did you know that up until as late as 1850, shoemakers didn’t differentiate between the left and the right? They made both shoes straight with no curve in them. I can only imagine how awful they were to wear.
Change came with the invention of machinery for making shoes, and they were finally able to produce left and right shoes.
I had so much fun writing SAVING THE MAIL ORDER BRIDE. Nora and Jack are so funny. Nora has a real problem with her shoes. The pair she wears coming west to marry are very worn. The heels are shaky, and the shoes are too narrow.
The book opens with a stagecoach carrying her and an outlaw who’d just been arrested.
Complication #1. He’s attached to a marshal by manacles (two handcuffs separated by a six-inch chain.) When the stagecoach wrecks and kills the marshal, Jack Bowdre asks Nora to get the key from the dead lawman’s pocket.
Complication #2. The second Nora unlocks the cuffs, she slaps them around her own wrist and tosses the key away because she’s terrified Jack’ll leave her at the mercy of the man who’s following her.
Jack is furious, to put it mildly. Now he’s handcuffed to a woman he’s never seen, and he’s about to lose his one chance of escape.
Before leaving the wreck, he removes the marshal’s boots, thinking they might come in handy. He and Nora spend a little time searching for the key but can’t find it, and he hears riders up above the ravine, so he rushes her away.
Complication #3. Nora can’t keep up because of her shoes. He stops and yanks them off, wraps her feet in one of her petticoats, and puts the dead marshal’s boots on her. They can move much faster. Then later on, she switches those boots for a smaller pair that belong to the man chasing her.
They’re afoot with nothing but the clothes on their backs and a posse close behind. It’s five days to reach the safety of the outlaw town, and the rugged terrain is unforgiving. The odds are stacked against them.
Oh, and I forgot to mention that Jack didn’t tell her he’s an outlaw—one of several things he left out of his letters. Nora does have her trials.
I think you’ll love this fast-paced fun story, the second in my Outlaw Mail Order Brides.

about the author banner

Linda Broday Author Photo

I’m a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of over twenty historical western romance novels and short stories. I reside in the Texas Panhandle on land the American Indian and Comancheros once roamed, and at times if the breeze is just right, I can hear their voices whispering in the wind. Texas’ rich history is one reason I set all my stories here where cowboys are still caretakers of the land. I’m inspired every day by their immense dedication and love for the wide open spaces.

When I’m not writing, I collect old coins and I’ve also been accused (quite unfairly I might add) of making a nuisance of myself at museums, libraries, and historical places. I’m also a movie buff and love sitting in a dark theater, watching the magic unfold on the screen. As long as I’m confessing…chocolate is my best friend. It just soothes my soul.

One thought on “Saving the Mail Order Bride

  1. Thank you so much for hosting me, Clueless Gent. I’m so excited about this book. I think it’s the most humorous one I’ve ever written. Jack and Nora were so much fun to write and played off each other perfectly. She didn’t let Jack get away with anything, but stood toe to toe with him, which frustrated him to no end. I hope readers will try it and look for the others in this Outlaw series. They’re building a town and new lives but they need a wife and families. Book #3 comes out in January 2020.
