Mail-Order Beatrice by Caroline Clemmons
Genre historical western romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG
Beatrice “Attie” Kendall has to escape from home with her six-week-old son. With the help of her kind brother, she goes to Atlanta where she consults a matchmaker. After the hard life Attie’s been dealt for her twenty years, she’ll finally have a good home with nice people and a friend nearby. In fact, her husband and their home seem too good to be true. Does she dare trust that her life has really changed?
Tate Merritt isn’t ready to get married but he gives in to his grandfather’s coercing. Grandpa raised him and Tate tries to please the older man. Tate doesn’t know what to think about this mail-order bride. She isn’t at all the wife he imagined—plus, she showed up with a baby! The child’s a cute little thing but Tate isn’t sure how he feels about her surprising him. How can he trust a woman whose story keeps changing?
Life presents obstacles to further complicate Attie and Tate’s marriage. They’ll have to work together to solve their problems and protect their family. Can they trust one another enough to make this marriage work?
Why did you write this book?
I was fortunate to be invited to join other authors writing books in the Widows, Brides, and Secret Babies series. Each is a stand-alone novella but all have in common that the heroine is a mail-order bride who shows up with a baby she’s kept secret from the prospective groom.
What is your favorite genre to read?
Historical western romance is my favorite to read and to write.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
Taylor Stapleton from Prince Charming by Julie Garwood. However, there are so many wonderful heroines in romances that choosing only one is difficult.
What are you working on at the moment?
Currently I’m writing An Agent for Judith, a Pinkerton Matchmaker series romance set to release on July 19 as #79 in this popular series (but each book is very different). This is my third contribution to the series, preceded by An Agent for Magdala and An Agent for Lydia.
What books will we see from you in coming months?
I’ll be very busy writing for the rest of 2020. On July 7 I’ll release Desperate in Delaware in the Yours Truly: The Lovelorn series. On July 21, I’ll release one of the Golden Legacy series. On August 4, I’ll release Louisiana Bride in the North and South series. There are more scheduled but that’s probably all you want to know about today.

Through a crazy twist of fate, Caroline Clemmons was not born on a Texas ranch. To compensate for this illogical error, she writes about handsome cowboys, feisty ranch women, and scheming villains in a tiny office her family calls her pink cave. She and her Hero live in North Central Texas cowboy country where they ride herd on their dog and two rescued indoor cats as well as providing nourishment outdoors for squirrels, birds, and other critters.
The over fifty titles she has created in her pink cave have made her an Amazon bestselling author and won several awards. She writes sweet to sensual romances about the West, both historical and contemporary as well as time travel and mystery. Her series include the Kincaids, McClintocks, Stone Mountain Texas, Bride Brigade, Texas Time Travel, Texas Caprock Tales, Loving A Rancher, and Pearson Grove as well as numerous single titles and contributions to multi-author sets. When she’s not writing, she loves spending time with her family, reading her friends’ books, lunching with friends, browsing antique malls, checking Facebook, and taking the occasional nap.
