"A writer whose prose is beautiful"
In 1899 Philadelphia, her beloved sister and brother-in-law
might not think she lives up to her surname, but Emily
Bright wants independence so she heads to Montana to
homestead and claim her own land. Not long after Emily
selects her lot, Jake Sullivan returns home only to find a
pretty eastern filly living on his acres.
Jake demands Emily give up her claim and leave. Emily
refuses saying he abandoned the property so it now belongs
to her. As they argue, fuss, and fight, she learns her
sister is coming for a visit. Emily begs Jake to pretend
to be her husband while Kate is here. Unable to say no, he
agrees, but soon both wants to change their fake status
into a real marriage as love blossoms between them.
The second book in the Miss Bright trilogy, MARRY ME is an
entertaining western romance starring two stubborn,
difficult, and ornery characters that readers will
cherish. Emily and Jake make the tale succeed, as they are
warm realistic protagonists. As Susan Kay Law did with
MARRYING MISS BRIGHT, she makes the final decade of the
nineteenth century in America seem so alive in her vivid
story line her audience will believe in time travel.
