A Sweet, Clean, Historical Romance about a Mail-Order Bride set in Boston and Montana.
Emma Byrne grew up in a Catholic orphanage in Boston, and her prospects are limited. She and her group of girlfriends, who all met in the orphanage, work as nannies, cooks, and live-in maids for rich familes and are barely getting by. When Emma's employer threatens her with losing her job if she doesn't submit to his very unwanted advances, she stumbles onto an opportunity to be a mail-order bride and decides that couldn't possibly be worse.
Except that the groom in question has no idea that his brother sent for a wife. When Emma arrives at the train station in Bozeman, MT, it's her groom's brother, Joshua and his wife, Hannah, that are there to greet her. Ethan is furious that his brother went behind his back and sent for a wife. He's still grieving from the unexpected death of his wife only a year earlier, and spends all his free time being a good father to his only child, Emily, who is four.
Montana is hugely different from Boston, and Emma is surprised that she immediately falls in love with the area. Though taken aback at first to discover that Ethan wasn't aware that she was coming, she's secretly relieved to have a little time to get to know him and her new home. She is also quite fascinated by his family. Ethan is the oldest of ten, and has eight brothers, all single except for Joshua. Emma develops an urge to play matchmaker and in book two, her best friend, Julia, comes West to meet the brothers.
