Caleb’s Bride ~ Book 3
Caleb Kincaid only planned on having a night on the town—playing poker. Ma never liked him gambling, and he was starting to understand why. Especially when he ends up winning a hand that will change his life.
Naomi Hudson had hoped to become a mail order bride in order to get away from having to care for her family—namely her pa and two older brothers. But one night when Pa is drunk, he gambles away her hand in marriage. It seems that even an older fiancé isn’t totally interested in her, since he soon loses her to someone else. Doesn’t anyone want to marry her for who she is? Can Naomi find it in her heart to care for a man out of love, especially when he needs her most?
Mail Order Brides series:
Susette Williams is the mother of six, and has been married to her husband for 31 years. She loves writing various genres; anything from romance, mystery, and suspense to name a few. She usually can't resist the urge to let her ornery sense of humor shine through in one of her characters and has always believed that laughter helps you deal with the obstacles life puts in your way
"Caleb's Bride" by Susette Williams is the third novelette in the (Mail Order Brides series:). I have really enjoyed all four of these novelettes. They are complete and can be read while waiting in a dr's office or when a person wants to escape reality for a short period of time! I love how they all connect to each other! After reading these stories I have changed my mind on mail order brides. I used to think how can people really find happiness by marrying someone they don't know but at least you really don't have ideals about your spouse that doesn't measure up to your ideal of what they are really like!
Caleb only wanted a night of fun but got more than he gambled for! Not only did he get a wife, he had to spend his wedding night in the hospital! Why, you ask I cannot tell you that as that would be a spoiler alert but I know you want to know why. So do yourself a favor and get these four stories and make sure to read them in order.
The only thing I dislike about these novelettes and others are even if the stories are complete, they leave you wanting more but then doesn't really good full length novels? But if Susette Williams reads this review I am hoping she is thinking about adding stories to this series so we can read about the brother's offspring!
I am giving "Caleb's Bride" five stars. I was given a pfd file by the author for a honest review!
