This story picks up from where Caroline Lowe had changed her mind of going to marry Wade Malone as a mail order bride and talked Elizabeth "Liz" Castle into taking her place. She exits the train and purchases a ticket back home. Caroline is setting having tea and misses her train heading back to Chicago. She isn't the only one who misses their train, so does Royce Ashby. It seems a young conductor on the train had misquoted the length of time the train would be at this location. Caroline is extr ...more

I loved this book. I didn't read Mail Order Switch and was concerned that I would be lost reading this one. This book can definitely stand alone but from what I am hearing, if you have read the first one, it makes this one even more engaging. I love when the heroines are feisty and spirited and I was not disappointed in Caroline. She has a temper and knows what she wants to do and no one is going to interfere. This of course makes for a few conflicts in the story and lucky (or unlucky) for her R ...more

Timing is everything...
This is a story set in the Old West circa 1800's during the time of Mail Order Brides. Caroline decides she wants to back out of her agreement and switches her bridal order onto another woman. It is on her way back to her home when she meets Royce Ashby. This book is a sequel to "The Mail Order Switch" and, at times I found it a bit difficult to keep up. I might have enjoyed the book a little more if I had read the first one. The characters of Caroline and Royce were belie

This is wonderful story by Patty Devlin. It is set in the west during the 1800’s. Caroline was going to be a mail order bride, but she changed her mind and switched with another young woman (Elizabeth from The Mail Order Switch). On her way back to Chicago, she meets Royce, who is an engineer on the train. Royce has an immediate attraction to Caroline and Caroline is sure he won’t want her because she is a widow. She couldn’t be more wrong! There are lots of spankings along the way. I loved this ...more

I received this book ARC for an honest review. This was a sequel to Mail Order Switch but can be read as a stand alone story. She backed out of a being a male order bride and talked another young woman to take her place. She travels back East for a family emergency and the train breaks down. She meets the train owner and then the sparks fly. Adventure, action, romance and spanking. Wonderful story.

Book two of the mail order bride switch series. This time we follow the bride that was ordered back to Chicago. A fun, fast paced read as she is at odds with the rain road line owner and the romance that blooms between them. More characters to find and books to come. Can't wait!

People are never quite who they seem.

I recently learned that writing fiction is the socially acceptable form of Schizophrenia. Yes, what to do with the voices in My Head?

Well, share them, of course...

I have always loved to write, and daydream - it just comes naturally to me. I love to read so I devour books. Sadly, I had a hard time finding the best books, the ones that had sexy, dominant men i
