Cowboys and Calico Blitz

Kirsten Osbourne, USA Today bestselling author, knows how to write romance. Each book is an experience that transplants the reader, indulging them in decadence, intense emotion and sweeping love.
Hailing from the state of Wisconsin, she has lived in Texas for over thirty years as a mother, writer, and wife. Married to the love of her life for more than fifteen years, she knows that true love exists and shares that vision with the world. 
She writes contemporary and historical romance as well and also ventures into the realm of paranormal romance. She invites you to join her in her world of fantasy, love, and make believe, no matter the location, where there is always a happily ever after at the end.

Amelia C. Adams is a wife, a mother, and a novelist. She spends her days dreaming up stories and her nights writing them down. Her biggest hero is her husband, and you might just see bits and pieces of him as you read her novels.

She loves all things historical and enjoys learning about days gone by, but she's glad she was born more recently (she won't say how recently or not recently) because the Internet is awesome, and she's glad she doesn't have to wash her clothes by hand in a galvanized tub. She has hit Amazon bestseller status twice, once for A Clean Slate and once for A Clear Hope.

Cassie Hayes, Bestselling author, grew up pretending she was Laura Ingalls (before that pesky Almanzo arrived on the scene) in the middle of Oregon farm country. She writes sweet stories about love and adventure in the Old West and lives with her husband and cat on the Pacific Ocean.

"Five bestselling Western romance authors come together to bring you one collection of all-new stories that will sweep you off your feet!

MAIL ORDER MIDWIFE by Kirsten Osbourne - Widowed midwife Patsy Lawrence spent too much time working and not enough with her young daughter. She knew Emily's childhood would be over before she realized it, so she responded to an ad for a mail-order bride, hoping for a better future for them both.
Dr. Wesley Hardy needed a wife to complete him, so he sent a letter to a mail-order bride agency back East, hoping to find someone compatible. When he received a letter from a widow with a young daughter, he was thrilled with everything but her profession. Could he live with the fact that his new bride was a midwife? Or would they be destined to live without love for the rest of their days?

A BROKEN WING by Amelia C. Adams - Bored beyond all reason while riding a train from Missouri to Colorado, Trinity Scott amuses herself by imagining things about the passengers around her, including the handsome man sitting across the aisle. With his dark curly hair and warm brown eyes, he’s certainly intriguing, and the fact that his arm is in a sling makes him all the more a curiosity.
But when three dangerous men board the train, her desire for adventure and excitement takes a sinister turn, and she must call on her inner strength to do what’s needed to survive.

THE MARSHAL’S REBELLIOUS BRIDE by Cassie Hayes - U.S. Marshal Curtis ‘Griff’ Griffith is on the trail of a wanted man. The last thing he needs is to be distracted by the newest resident of the Dalton Brothers Ranch. So why does he keep returning? It’s certainly not to see the beautiful-but-bullheaded Catherine James.
Catherine has no interest in men or marriage, but there aren’t many choices for single ladies to earn a living on a remote Texas ranch. When she discovers that she holds the key to capturing the outlaw — and collecting some of the reward — she doesn’t hesitate to force Griff’s hand.
Will they kill each other before they find the murderer, or will they risk their damaged hearts for a shot at a new life?

COURTING MISS CARTWRIGHT by Kristin Holt - Courtship, by the book, is supposed to be easy…
As the daughter of an unwed mother, Felicity Percival is accustomed to rejection. Her mother was her only family ... until she is summoned to the reading of her father's will. To learn he was a married preacher with a second daughter horrifies her. The stipulations attached to her inheritance infuriate her. The last thing she expects is the emergence of truths that destroy her life-long beliefs. The last thing she wants is to feel the blush of first love for a man she can't have.
The road to Happily Ever After should not be rocky, especially for level-headed, rule-following Rocky Gideon. His courtship of the minister’s daughter is successful and on track, surviving everything life throws at them … except the appearance of the preacher’s other daughter. Felicity asks too many questions, forces him to evaluate his carefully constructed plan, and somehow steals his heart.
Rocky desperately needs a solid marriage that will go the distance … so why does he yearn for the wrong sister?

WANTED: THE PERFECT HUSBAND by Margery Scott - Sybil Franklin needs a husband—fast! In order to keep her ranch, she must be married within thirteen days. Devin McGregor meets all her requirements and comes highly recommended, but he has no interest in marriage.
Devin McGregor had a ranch once, a fiancée, a future. He made a mistake, and it cost him everything. Now, even though he’d love to own his own land again, he’s afraid to risk failure.
Sybil decides to post an advertisement for the perfect husband. As Devin tries to protect her from being taken advantage of, his feelings for her grow, but his fear of failing her won’t let him accept her proposal.

Interview With Author Margery Scott

1. Describe yourself in 50 words or less.
Scottish by birth. Canadian by choice. Wife, mother, grandmother, sister. Too short for my weight, and older on the outside than on the inside. Travel fanatic, junk food addict and avid pool player.
2. What do you love most in the world?
I hope I haven’t found it yet. In the meantime, I love so many things – dancing, walking on the beach at sunrise, curling up with a good book in front of a roaring fire, spending time with my boys ... oh, and ice cream.
3. What do you fear most?
Bees, wasps, hornets. On a deeper level, I don’t ever want to be dependent on someone else for my basic needs.
4. What is your largest unfulfilled dream, and what are you doing to reach it?
I’d love a beach house somewhere warm but that can’t happen (cue music from The Impossible Dream). Otherwise, I’m pretty content with my life … but I wouldn’t mind winning an Emmy or an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay.
5. What is the hardest thing you've ever done?
That would be far too depressing, so I’ll keep that to myself.
6. Now that we've gotten to know each other, tell me a story. It can be long or short. From your childhood or last week. Funny, sad, or somewhere in between. Just make sure it's yours. What's your story?
I write romance, and the first meet between the hero and heroine is a major event. But what about real life? It usually isn’t dramatic enough for a romance novel. I tell people I met my husband in the back seat of a car just to make it sound more interesting and risqué, and a statement like that does make eyebrows arch. I was eighteen. My best friend asked me to go with her to watch her boyfriend’s hockey game. I had nothing else to do, so I agreed. Her boyfriend was giving another player a ride. We stopped at the player’s house. He got in, said hello. We got to the rink. He got out and said goodbye. Repeat on the way home after the game. Four words. That was the extent of our conversation that night. A few days later, he (and my friend’s boyfriend) showed up at my house. And as they say, the rest is history.


“I’m not quite sure how to say this, but Mr. Morgan said—”
She twisted the straps of her reticule until they were wound as tight as what he expected her nerves were. Then she looked up at him. “I have to … what I mean is, I need …”
“You need what?” he prodded.
She took a deep breath, letting it out slowly. “I need a husband.”
Devin could have sworn the woman was asking him to marry her, but he must have heard wrong. Didn’t he? “You want a husband?” he asked.
She looked away, as if she couldn’t force herself to look him square in the eye.
“I don’t want a husband. I need a husband,” she repeated.
He let out a soft whistle. “That’s what I thought you said, but I figured I was hearing things. And Brett Morgan thought I might be the one to ask?”
If the woman had mentioned Trey’s name – or even Heath’s - instead of Brett’s, he would have been sure it was some kind of prank. But not Brett.
She nodded. “I realize this must come as a shock, but time is of the utmost importance. I just got here yesterday and I don’t have time to be courted properly.”
“You mind telling me why you’re in such a hurry to get married that you’d marry a man you don’t even know?”
“Of course.” She let out a short laugh. “I realize this is quite unusual,” she began, then for the next few minutes explained everything that had happened. “So you see, Mr. McGregor, since you are unmarried and you’re familiar with ranching, you’re the obvious choice.”
Devin couldn‘t believe what he was hearing, but he wasn’t about to get married, especially to a woman he’d never seen before a few minutes ago.
Sure, he’d been a rancher, but he’d lost everything. And he wasn’t going to take the chance again, especially when it was somebody else’s ranch he could lose. “Look, ma’am, I’m sure you’re a nice lady and you’ll make some man a good wife one day, but not me.”
