Above is my cover for Perfectly Mismatched, the first book in a new multi-author historical romance series called “Sweethearts of Jubilee Springs.” The first three novellas involve mail-order brides coming as a group to a Colorado silver mining town. Four stories will launch the series on June 20th with two more the following week, and additional single releases are scheduled through the summer.
Perfectly Mismatched–A shamed socialite on the run has to choose a husband and fast. Will her groom be the safe unsophisticated choice or the discerning one who might see beneath her façade?

The stories take place ranging from post-Civil War to early 1890s and in a variety of states. One of the main characters of each story is a descendant of Mary Godwin Benton Palmer who sewed a wedding quilt for each of her grandchildren.
My story, Ione’s Dilemma, comes 8th in line (on sale today through Tuesday) and has a tie to my existing Dorado, Texas series.
When Ione Forrester calls off her wedding, she becomes the social pariah of Des Moines. Much to her society parents’ chagrin. To escape the gossip, Ione accepts a teaching job in Dorado, Texas, vowing to avoid scandal at all costs. Relocating from a doctor’s household with cook and maids to a room in a boarding house is quite an adjustment. Then she has to face her biggest challenge—a schoolhouse full of students.
Carpenter Morgan Shipley’s business is doing well and now he’s looking for companionship. An ad for a mail-order bride brings a deluge of letters, which prove more than he can handle. To his surprise, an intriguing woman from a big city arrives in his small Texas town. Correspondence is nothing like interacting with a flesh-and-blood woman every day. But gossip-leery Ione wants nothing to do with Morgan’s attempts at courting, which makes him try even harder.
