A Bride for Dalton by Caroline Clemmons
Genre Western historical romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG
Rebecca wants a husband but not the man her stepbrother/guardian insists she wed. To escape his threats she turns to a family friend for help. Reverend McClain suggests she enter a proxy marriage to his only living relative, a nephew who ranches in Montana. Out of options, she agrees. Until she arrives in Sweet Springs, she has no idea the telegram with instructions to her supposed groom has not been delivered. Where does that leave her?
Dalton is working with dangerous men to accomplish his goal. The last thing he needs at this time is a wife in the way. He is a gentleman and sees no other solution than to complete the vows. How is he going to keep her out of harm’s way while he completes this job?
Rebecca and Dalton embark on married life in unusual circumstances. Can love blossom in tumultuous times?
Why did you write this book?
I was fortunate enough to be invited to participate in this multi-author series, The Proxy Brides, by Christine Sterling Bortner, the series originator. This is my second in the series—the first was A Bride for Gideon. I’ve enjoyed writing this story I loved writing the premise of a bride who thinks she’s married a man. When she arrives, he has no idea what she’s talking about. What is she to do? What is he to do? I hope readers will want to learn what comes next!
What is your favorite genre to read?
Although I read many genres, my favorite stories are western historical mail-order brides. I also love reading Regencies but have never attempted to write one.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
Taylor Stapleton from Prince Charming by Julie Garwood. That book is a clever combination of English Victorian and American western historical.
What are you working on at the moment?
I’m writing a Christmas story at the moment—even though we are experiencing near 100 degree F weather. I love Christmas, so getting into the mood is not difficult for me. In fact, Melody, Angel Creek Christmas Brides book 7, is already up for pre-order.
What books will we see from you in coming months?
In addition to a couple of Christmas stories this year, An Agent for Lydia in the Pinkerton Matchmaker series will be out January 10, followed by an energetic release schedule for 2020. Writing is bliss for me—even on difficult days, I’m doing a job I love.
