Enjoy this third installment of the Holiday Mail Order Brides as Kit Morgan delivers another delightful romp of sweet romance in the old west!
What happens when meddling mother's order their sons mail order brides and not tell them? It happened to Clayton Riley, it happened to his brother Spencer, and now it was Matthew Quinn's turn. There was just one, little, problem. He was already in love ...
Rose Smith didn't know what to expect when she signed on the dotted line at the Ridgley Mail Order Bride Service, all she knew was that adventure awaited her in the wild west! And what an adventure she got when she showed up in the town of Nowhere!
Kit Morgan, aka Geralyn Beauchamp, has been writing for fun all of her life. When writing as Geralyn Beauchamp, her books are epic, adventurous, romantic fantasy at its best. When writing as Kit Morgan they are whimsical, fun, inspirational sweet and clean stories that depict a strong sense of family and community. 'His Prairie Princess' is the first of the Prairie Brides books and the first in the series of a long line of stories about Clear Creek, Oregon. One of the wackiest little towns in the old west! Get to know the townsfolk in Clear Creek and come sit a spell!
NOTE: Hi folks, it has come to my attention there is an erotica book floating around out there written under the name Kit Morgan. IT IS NOT MY BOOK! I do not, and never will, write in that genre.
Wowza! These meddling mothers are so funny! Well as long as they are not your's and ordering a mail order bride for you! Matthew had just come back from school in Boston where he had studied to be a doctor. His parents run the mercantile and just as he got there, his mother introduced him to his mail order bride Rose. Rose had come from the same orphanage as Summer and El because she had turned 18 and had to get a job or marry. What a tangled web! Matthew though had been in love with Charlotte forever.. Yes that Charlotte. But now he had this bride thrust upon him. Blend in the Deputy Sheriff Tom who was from Clear Creek and the fun begins. With Michael Rahhal and his brilliant voices and the writing of Kit Morgan, it does not get much better than this! Now off to the next one in the series!
I enjoy mail order bride stories. Maybe because when I first learned of them I was fascinated with the concept of going to a new place and marrying someone you never met. I couldn’t decide if it was a grand adventure or the worst thing that could happen. I’ve been obsessed ever since. I enjoy the location of this one. I think it’s the farthest north and west I’ve read of them. I enjoy Kit Morgan’s sense of humor. The story has a love triangle going on. It presented a lot of opportunities to enjoy that sense of humor. I wasn’t excited about the narration. He wasn’t bad. He just didn’t excite me. Over all it was a fun book for me.
The mothers in Nowhere,Washington, keep ordering brides. This time the groom is not so willing. I like this one better than 1 & 2 simply because of the twist in which the potential groom tries his best to resist his mother's wishes. Not to worry, there is still a wedding, just not the one expected.
I do like this series because it is set in Washington Territory instead of Wyoming or Montana where most series are set. I lived near the apple growing region in Washington for 27 years, so it is fun to read novels set in that locale.
I have read 3 of the "Mail Order Bids" books in the series.. Each has its own ending. I enjoyed reading them , however I am hoping the story lines begin to change a little more in the beginning..so far it is big meets girl, fights caring for girl, then they finally swallow the pride and get married to live happily ever after. I'm going to purchase the 4th book to give it another chance.
In many ways, this is a sweet, fun mail order bride romance. I liked every single character. However, the love triangle issue lasted until the very last pages of the book and made me nuts. I just couldn't enjoy the romances with this ax hanging over everything.
Another mail-order bride. This time Rose is for Matthew Quinn. Matthew has just returned to Nowhere after spending 4 years in Boston, becoming a doctor. His mom sent for Rose who arrives the same day as Matthew. Matthew is in love with Charlotte. Remember Charlotte? She is the one who caused trouble for Summer and Elle. Yep, that’s her. Rose Mets Deputy Tom. Cue the hearts and the fireworks. But Rose signed a contract to marry Matthew and Tom would never interfere in a wedding. And to make matters worse, Tom somehow becomes engaged to Charlotte. What a comedy of errors! But I have to confess that I wanted just to smack Matthew throughout the entire book. Guess I should ask him for forgiveness. NAH.
Okay, this is my second time reading this book. I caught much I didn't get the first time around. I've read subsequent books of hers. They have more of a back story now. I love that Charlotte finally found happiness. What about Matthew's doctoring career? In the books since he's working at the mercantile. I can't wait to see if she takes and writes about the elderly couples if Clear Creek getting centuries of life. This is found in Tom Turner's Tales, where he tells stories to an aide in a nursing home. Love the characters in Nowhere, Clear Creek, the White stage stop, the Weavers, and Creede Montana. I love how she intertwines all her characters. Back to this book. I love how Matthew comes home for his true love. Very good read.
I listened to this book on Audible at 1.5 speed increased as the original narration was a bit slow for my liking. I enjoy this series although this book seemed to drag for me. I knew from very early on that the couples would switch and I just wanted to get on with it. Waiting to the very end just prolonged the never ending. I think this story could have been written a number of ways, but this one just drug for me. I will continue on with the series as the seasons arrive.

It's hard to get Kit's books in order. I knew the "punch line" if you want to call it that because I had read one of her other books that had some of these characters in it. Still it was an entertaining book even if I did I guess read it out of order. I love Kit's stories. Full of humor and always a clean read.
Another bride comes to Nowhere and the groom doesn't have any idea until she stands in front of him. Well the match making mothers are at it again. They didn't know that the groom was already in love and getting him to accept their choice of a bride was going to be a challenge. I really enjoyed how this Valentine romance ends !
I enjoyed the series. It is a fun, easy read, ending was predictable. Sometimes you get so frustrated with the characters for not stating the obvious but it was a different era and mores were not the same.
Charlotte has decided to change her ways and is a much more pleasant gal. Rose is the mail order bride. Tom is the deputy. Matthew has just returned from 4 years of schooling and his mother has arranged for him to marry.
I love this book! This series just keeps getting better. I love the characters and the little town, the older ladies that love to plan the weddings whether the couples want them to or not. On to the next book in the series.
To have and to hold. This book makes you wonder if anyone will express their love for the person they are attracted to. Go through the tears, sobs and downright wondering of hoe four people weave tbeirwzyinand out of romance. Down to earth and wonderful.
I chuckled more than once in this read. Busy bodies still abide in the town...they haven't learned a thing from earlier books. The scene at the end was a hoot, but given these old hens I doubt they will change in the future.
