(A book in the McCoy Brothers series)
A novel by

When Stephen McCoy leaves the Indiana farm he shares with his brother Daniel, Daniel's wife Rosemarie, and their four children to go into town to load up on supplies, he never expects to return with a bride.

Indiana, May 1867 - Calliope Bender arrives in town and steps off the stagecoach in a wedding gown, carrying a wilted bouquet. She is running from an unwanted marriage but still in need of a husband - one who will agree to a marriage of convenience. Eager to build a home for himself, Stephen agrees to Calliope's conditions, despite the fact that the idea of a "marriage in name only" doesn't sit well with him. Neither one of them is looking for love, but will it creep up on them when they aren't looking?
Stephen's Bride features Daniel McCoy of Daniel's Desire. Read both books to see how these rugged brothers find happy ever after.
