Book four in the Mail-Order Brides series. I am a huge fan of Johnston's Bitter Creek series and this book is essentially a companion book that goes back to the very beginning of the family. To be honest all four books in this series has been a starting point for further offspring which I have to admit I just love. For this book we get the story of the Duke of Blackthorne that owns Blackthorne Abbey. He needs a rich wife to save all that he owns. Josie is one of the sisters from the previous books that he saved from Indians while he was still in America though he does not know this when she applies to be his wife. Josie is just trying to get custody of his abandoned nephews that he ignores. So each of them has an agenda which makes the development of the relationship quite interesting until they realize they love one another. This is an incredible historical romance novel just like all of hers are. I absolutely loved it and give it 5/5 stars.
