Ethan's Wild Rose Bride (Chance Creek Brides, The Early Years Book 2)
by Mary L. Briggs
Chance Creek, Texas, 1884. Ethan needs a bride–a mail order bride. No fuss, no romance, just a business deal. There’s just one problem: he can’t read or write. Thinking former school teacher, Hallie, is the answer to his problem, he offers to work on her ranch in exchange for lessons. Can they work so closely without romance blooming? Or does God have a different plan in mind for their lives?
