If you saw my Facebook post last week, you know that I had some exciting news coming. Well, today I’m ready to share… on my side bar you’ll see my goals. TURN IN PROPOSAL BY January 15th. I turned that proposal in, and it was rejected. No, don’t get all sad for me because I turned in another one, a historical, AND… this one was accepted!!!
Yes! I signed a contract with Love Inspired for a historical. This is exciting on so many levels. First, after sending in multiple proposals, all contemporaries, I finally sold. Second, historicals are making a comeback. This is good news for historical romance fans.
A Mail Order Bride Romance, set in the fictional town of Oak Grove, Kansas in 1868. Inspired by Council Grove, Kansas!!
Penelope Parker and Marshal Beau Garrett
When Penelope Parker discovers her father’s plans to marry her to his greedy and murderous business partner, she decides to take action to save her life. Seeing a mail order bride ad, she packs her bags and travels west to meet her new husband. However, when she arrives, she discovers her future husband isn’t looking for a wife, but a nanny for several small children, too which she has no experience caring for.
After inheriting five young wards, Beau Garrett is in desperate need of a nanny in order to maintain his employment as Oak Grove’s City Marshal. However, when he entrusts his nephews with the task of delivering his ad, he never expects them to incorporate the assistance of the church ladies in procuring him a wife, a wife he doesn’t know he wants.
