An omnibus of novels by

Journey to Colorado as four young women discover new homes in this western historical romance novelette collection.

In an era when a marriage of convenience was a way of life for some men out west, falling in love was not a part of the plan.

Escape into a time when a simple letter could change someone's destiny for better or for worse. Can these four women find a second chance at love out west on the Colorado Frontier, or will they forever remain unchanged?

Julia Hollister's father is having a difficult time making ends meet, and the only option he sees is to marry off his daughters. Stone Michaels has become a successful rancher. He has everything he wants, except for one thing: a family. After he realizes there is very little chance of finding a single woman where he is in the mountains of Colorado, he responds to Mr. Hollister's letter about Julia. Stone offers no promises but states that he will cover her travel expenses, and she can stay with the pastor and his wife until he is ready to marry her. Will Julia willingly marry Stone, or will she return to her home in Virginia alone?

In this post-Civil War historical Christian romance, widow Lenora has run out of money, so she turns to her father for help. He struggles to make ends meet, but he can't turn his back on his daughter. After Jesse Grant loses his wife and two children in a fire, he has tried to make his way through life for the past couple of years. But it's hard to pastor such a large church without the support of a wife. The members of his church urge him to find a woman to marry, so he responds to the letter from John Hollister, saying he would consider taking Lenora as his wife and her son as his own. When Lenora arrives in Colorado as a mail order bride, she is shocked to see how surly Jesse is. Can these two people ever come to terms with their grief and find love with each other?

Wyatt Thompson grieved over a loss. His world crashed around him and nothing, it seemed, could help him.
Piper Morgan, a mail-order bride, came to Colorado to find love and security. But when she arrived, sick and alone, she believed her world would never be the same.
But deep in the frigid Colorado mountains, Wyatt and Piper found each other. In a twist of events, Wyatt and Piper are drawn to each other and drawn from any thing they've ever known.
Will this mail-order bride fall in love with a man in what becomes a marriage of convenience?

Christmas in the Colorado Rockies
Jonah Tomlinson spent the last year mending a broken heart. He wanted marriage and children, but didn't want the worries of love and another broken heart. But no woman would ever agree to that, so he sent off for a mail-order bride with the condition that they marry for mere companionship - and not love.
Annie Reed spent the past year mourning the loss of her fiance to a horse accident. She vowed never to fall in love again. When she answered Jonah's letter, the two agreed to marry without the entanglement of love. They both decided to stick to the plan - until they met.
It's winter time in the Colorado Rockies, and Christmas is right around the corner in the small town of Breckenridge. Sleigh bells ring, Christmas decorations are up, and Annie and Jonah are doing something they promised not to do - fall in love with each other. Both find themselves unable to stick to the agreement, but not wanting to disappoint the other by breaking their promise. Before they say their vows, can they admit their feelings for each other and truly give in to love? Or will Annie return to New York and never see her true love again?
