The Runaway Mail-Order Bride by Anne Glynn

Lisa has been charmed by letters from a man in the West.  He's looking for a bride, she's looking for a new life, and he sounds so nice.  She agrees to be a mail order bride.  He's there to pick her up and looks very handsome, but he's a bit pushy.  He wants to get married immediately and already has her dress picked out.  She was hoping for a bit more time, but she did come to get married...

The author and Goddess Fish Promotions gave me the opportunity to read and review this book and participate in the blog tour (thank you).  The book has been published and you can buy a copy where ebooks are sold.

Lisa finds out she made a big mistake when the lady at the hotel is helping her into her wedding dress.  She tells her the letters were written by another man, someone with poetry in his soul and a very expressive letter writer.  When Lisa questions Don, he quickly becomes abusive.  The ceremony is over quickly and he tells her she's now his possession.  She's scared, badly scared.  The deputy doesn't like what he's seen, so he quits his job and helps her get out of town.  The only living relative she has lives some distance away in another western town and that's where she runs.

When she arrives in the city, she finds her Uncle has died.  However, he's left a will that gives her the ranch.  That's great, but it's run down, she has no money, and there's not much to eat.  It's still better than living with Donald, so she tries to settle in.

Imagine her horror when she finds out someone is in the barn!  She's afraid it's Don or someone he's sent after her, so she takes the gun out with her.  What she finds is a man and his horse and he knows her Uncle.  She still doesn't trust him, but she realizes he's there on a friendly basis.  When she finds out he owes her Uncle money, she's willing to let him stay.  Soon she's trying to keep him there to protect her from Donald.  The problem is that she isn't protecting her heart from Pearce. Pearce has no use for women, either.  Somehow it doesn't matter what they think...

When she gets a telegram that says:  "Found you" things get much worse...
