Because of her stepsisters, Eve Jamison is driven from her hometown in scandal with a train ticket in one hand and a proxy marriage license in the other. But when she arrives in the small Colorado mountain town, she discovers her groom recently died. Even though she never met her husband, the new widow learns she is quite wealthy. At the mercy of her dead husband's money grubbing family, Knox and Jed Dare each vow to protect her. They both want the beautiful bluestocking and refuse to cede way to the other.
Eve has other ideas where the two men are concerned. Because she is now a woman of Slate Springs, she doesn't have to choose. She wants both Jed and Knox... and gets them.
A sexy Cinderella story!
This is book 3 in the Mail Order Bride of Slate Springs series features Eve Jamison and Jed and Knox Dare. If fate is involved, things have a way of working out and I believe fate was watching out for Eve. The story plays out like a Cinderella story. Except in Cinderella there was only one prince. Maybe it was being treated so horribly by her stepsisters and then like a queen by the Dare brothers but I felt much more emotion in this book than in previous ones.
It's always a pleasure watching the men of Slate Springs fall into insta-love. I'm looking forward to the next book.
