Mistletoe marriage of convenience…

When Jake Bridges suddenly finds himself the guardian of his orphaned niece, he knows he needs a wife. What does a stock tender at a pony express station know about raising little girls? A marriage of convenience to the child’s caretaker is the most practical solution.

A mail-order marriage seems like Leah Hollister’s last chance to know the simple joys of family life. But then she receives word that her would-be groom is dead. Now Jake proposes she marry him. She knows love isn’t necessary. Yet the more she learns of sweet Molly’s kindhearted uncle, the more she dreams of a true partnership with the man who has unexpectedly captured her heart.

Dear Reader,

When I was researching the Pony Express, I came across a letter from a little girl who asked if there were any girl Pony Express riders.  The gentleman who answered her letter said, “not that history recorded but that doesn’t mean there wasn’t one.”  that got me to thinking, and Josephine’s story was born.  I enjoyed telling Thomas and Josephine’s love story.

Thank you so much for reading Pony Express Christmas Bride.  I hope you are enjoying reading this miniseries as much as I am writing it.

Warmly,

Rhonda Gibson
