As someone who's always been fascinated by the pioneers and their journeys west, I'm delighted to be part of this collection. Here's a sneak peek into my story, The Sagebrush Bride.
If there's one thing Avice Longcope doesn't need, it's the husband her uncle has chosen for her. Still mourning her parents' death of cholera along the trail, she wants nothing more than to find peace. What she finds when the wagon train reaches Fort Laramie is a screaming baby and a father who's beside himself trying to care for his son while he runs the post store. And so Avice and Raleigh strike a bargain, never expecting to get far more than they bargained for.
