The end of a series

The Cowboys & Debutantes series has, for me, come to an end. There is still one more contemporary romance from Kit Morgan to add to the series, but my contribution is over.

I’ve enjoyed writing the series. I hope you have enjoyed it too. It was a unique concept – writing a series that spanned the generations as historical romance and contemporary romance. You can read either of the series or both of them. And readers seem to love both, even those who don’t usually read contemporary romance.

If you haven’t read it yet, grab your copy of Parker, my latest release. Let me know what you think of it!

Coming next – the third installment in the Paradise Valley series!

“Vivi Holt is a wonderful author, her stories are full of adventure, surprises, and clean tender love. I’ve never read a book by her that I didn’t love.
This one was so well written, a balance of tears, holding your breath and sighs. I love how she takes her readers on a journey one you can’t wait to turn the page to see what happens next and when you reach the end, you don’t want it to stop! Ed and Hattie’s story is perfect. It was fun having a front row seat to their relationship. A pure pleasure to read, I’d give it a 10 star if I could.”

When Hattie Stout boards the train bound for the western frontier, she doesn’t think things can get any worse. Her father lost his fortune and made her a pariah in New York society. Then, the man she was engaged to marry, backed out of the arrangement to marry his cousin. When her parents decide there is nothing left to do but send her west as a Mail Order Bride, she thinks she’s hit rock bottom. She’s wrong!

Sheriff Ed Milton is comfortable in the life he’s carved out for himself in his small mining town. But he’s never met anyone quite like Hattie Stout before. When she steps out of the stage coach that fateful summer’s day, she makes an impression he finds difficult to forget. She’s beautiful, cultured and obviously wealthy – so what is she doing in Coloma?

A tragedy draws them together in a way neither one of them expects. And just when they think they can move on, it comes back to haunt them. Will they ever be free to follow their hearts?

Enjoy this fourth installment of mail-order brides who go from riches to rags! A clean and wholesome mail-order bride romance!
