Myra's Escape

(The first book in the Barlow Wives series)
A novel by

Escape is her only choice...

Myra Felton's grandfather has sold her to a banker to pay his debts! But Myra will not become the property of the evil Cosmos Hubbard - she plans her escape... With her future uncertain, she leaves in the dead of night for Charleston, the largest city of any size, vowing to lose herself there. But a chance encounter with a marriage broker gives her the best plan of all - with no money of her own, she agrees to travel to Wyoming, as far from Cosmos Hubbard as she can get!

He's desperate for a cook...

Anson Barlow fears mutiny from his four younger brothers if he can't come up with someone to cook a decent meal for them all once in a while! It's hard enough to run a thriving ranch such as the Circle B without having to worry about cooking and cleaning - talents the Barlow brothers lack. When he signs a contract for a housekeeper, he doesn't realize that also means a wife.

Love is waiting...

When Anson meets Myra at the train station, she's not at all what he's expecting. He can't protect her from the gossips if he takes her home without marrying her - and though he may be many things, he is not that cruel. But though the marriage may protect her from vicious jealousy in the town, what will happen when Cosmos Hubbard shows up to claim the woman he says is rightfully his? Will MYRA'S ESCAPE have been for nothing?
