The fourth book in the Paradise Valley series is here.

Antonio Sanchez is searching for his family.
His wife and daughter were headed to Montana Territory from Santa Fe, Mexico to join him in Paradise Valley. But he hasn’t heard from them in a long time, and every day that passes his anxiety for their safety grows. As soon as the snow melts he travels back to Texas, their last known location, to see if he can find them. But bands of outlaws, disgruntled townsfolk hankering for blood, violent teamsters, and drunken cowpokes make the journey anything but simple. And then there’s Lotte…
Lotte Veldon and her husband traveled all the way from Holland to Texas to start a new life as pioneers. But a tragedy leaves her stranded, alone and on the run.
When their paths collide on a dusty Texas road, neither of them realize just how much their lives are about to change. When Lotte begs him to let her help find his missing family, he reluctantly agrees, but only until they can find her a more permanent place to stay.
Time on the road will fan the flames of affection and put both their lives at risk.
Will Antonio find his family? And what will become of Lotte if he does?

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!

Hattie

Now selling

“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!

About the book

Genevieve Waters Ewing is married.

She’s married to a man she doesn’t love, and didn’t agree to marry. The scoundrel dragged her to the altar, and now everything is going to change. In a split second decision, she runs away, and stows aboard a chuck wagon that’s leaving on a cattle drive, heading north to Montana. She doesn’t know where she’s going, or what she’ll do, she only knows one thing – she has to escape from Fort Worth, Texas.

Thomas O’Reilly’s finally got the chance to prove himself to his Pa. After finding gold in Montana Territory, he travels to Texas to buy a herd of longhorns to take back north with him, where demand for beef is high. Everything is going his way until he discovers a beautiful, young woman asleep in the back of his chuck wagon.

A woman on the trail is bad for business, especially in a group of rough and rowdy cowboys. Will she ruin everything he’s worked so hard for? Or will she be the one thing he really needs?

Follow their journey, from Texas to Montana Territory, where challenges lurk around every corner, and love is forged in the heat of battle.

*Please note : This book continues the story of Bill and Sarah Hanover, from The Strong One (Cutter’s Creek #2)
