Rose has always loved school. When a new headmaster comes to town she decides she wants to volunteer in his classroom. Michael is required to be married. A fact that wasn’t brought up until after he had signed the contract. They also required he marry very quickly so he wrote away for a mail-order bride. This is a lovely book of two people anxious to help young people learn. I enjoyed reading it.

This 'free' Kindle Unlimited ebook definitely was a sweet and clean tale about a mail-order bride. Both parties agreed to become a partner in marriage.

I must say that the women in this series are tremendous role models. They were independent, strong, and respectful toward their families. Each worked together with their husbands as a team.

The men are hard working, loving, and handsome! Who wouldn't want to spend time with them?

The proofreader must have dozed through their responsibilities to thi

First, this isn't really about a mail order bride unless you count the one who was promised a marriage and it never happened - to that bride.

Overall not a bad story or plot. However, I would have done a bit more about them fighting or acknowledging the feelings. Also, I would have done more around the mail order bride part and make that seem more a part of the story rather than a thrown in statement and scene here and there. It felt very under done (picture near rare if you were cooking a steak

Book 4 of the Wild West Frontier Brides series. Even though I haven't read any of the others, I was able to read this on it's own. Rose has always loved school and books. Michael comes to town to be headmaster of the school. The board insists that he must be married to hold his job. He sends away for a mail order bride, as he certainly doesn't know anyone to marry right away. Rose volunteers to help Michael in the classroom. Once the mail order bride arrives, what will surely happen? A quick boo ...more

Poorly written but fairly good plot

This could have been a good novel had thd author known how to write. She had a very short plot that could havs been told in 20 pages. The rest of book was just a bunch or strung along sentences & a ton or prepositions thrown in. Absolutely no interesting incidences occurred, & she repeated Rose's same thoughts as if reading them a 3rd time would be any different than the first two. Whoever edited this book did a poor job of correcting any grammatical er

Mail order brides abound, or do they

Does this series have any mail order brides? Don't know, but it's filled with young couples and local people. One thing, the dress in the cover art is in the book. A sweet little book that's a nice read. Recommended for those who like the genre.

I really enjoyed this sweet, clean romance. Reading from both Rose's and Michael's perspectives added more depth to the story. As a teacher, I appreciated their passion for education and the care they exhibited for their students. The developing romance was written well and kept pace with the rest of the story. Although the ending was expected, I still found myself smiling at the HEA.

Fun to read

What a delightful romance. Even though you know how it is going to end, it is worth reading to see how it plays out. A short read. Would enjoy knowing more about the Archer family--next book in this book for sure.

Sweet love story

Each of Cindy Caldwell's books are from a different perspective and each has a twist . The love stories are sweet without going into wedding night information. Easy reading

Pretty good.

This book was a clean romance. It was pretty good but a little dry. I had a hard time connecting to the characters, but I think that was more me than anything the author did or didn't do.

Great tale of life and love in the desesrt SW

Life and love happens whether it is convenient or not when the time is ripe. Will they be able to recognize it before things go too far?

Rose is such a geek but with a very big heart. Just loved this character but she took a while to determine what she was feeling. Old biddy who is over the school committee needs to get over herself.

Great story about love and listening to your heart and doing what's right. Also just how important education was even 'out west'.
Rosemary Archer loved school so much she's actually sad that she's graduated and can't go back. But she jumps at the opportunity to volunteer as a teacher's assistant to the new headmaster. Again, continuity issues but overall a good read. I love this series.

Clean romance, error free writing, but overall quite boring. There was much repetition about the fact that some children are not allowed to come to school.

An okay book.

This begins slow and is difficult to continue reading. However, the major characters are well developed and the background tends to be authentic.

Rose's story has held me tighter 5han the rest! But I do love them all can't wait to start Saffrons next!

I love these Wild West Frontier Brides stories, and even though they are part of a series, each reads nicely as a standalone. They are just all so enjoyable I recommend you read them all, and preferably in order. Friends and families from the previous books will be part of this story. What a great cast of characters, from those who are so pious and snooty to the sweet and kindhearted, with entertaining and witty dialog. The plot kept me captivated as the story u

What a beautiful story! Michael and Rose will have your heart bleeding for the undiscovered love they hold for each other and the circumstances that they have found themselves thrust upon them. Michael has moved from Boston to Tombstone as their new headmaster of the only school, only to find that the contract he has with them suddenly has stipulations that are extremely unreasonable and seem to be solely in place for boosting the ego of the chairwoman of the board. But, with some help from a ne ...more

Another sweet and cozy read - developing the stories of friends and family in Tombstone Arizona. As Rose struggles with dreaming of her future, she meets the new headmaster for the school that she loved. It occurs to her that she could volunteer there to help him along with Suzanne.

As she works alongside Suzanne and Mr. Tate at the school, she finds herself more and more caught up in the need for education for all children, not just for those fortunate enough to not need to work so their family

I really enjoyed this sweet, clean mail-order bride story. The premise was unique and the writing was solid. The characters in the story are each unique and each come with their own problems and quirks. I like how this sets it apart from the majority of other mail-order bride books. Even though the couples meet and fall in love quickly the way that the story leads up to the ending you can feel a connection between them and the appearance is that it was longer.

The book did not feel rushed at all

Rose has no intentions of getting married soon but she finds out that the new teacher, Michael Tate may need help with his one room school this fall.

Wonderful sweet and romantic historical romance. Michael is the new headmaster at the local school, and he just got the surprise of his life, find a wife, now, or he cannot keep his job! Rose would do anything to be a teacher, and when she finds out that Michael needs an assistant, she thinks her dreams have come true. Neither one consider the other in terms of marriage, and yet, as they work together they form a bond, maybe even one that could eventually lead to love? But with a mail order brid ...more

A School Master a young lady with the love of learning. This is the continuation of a series of books that are stand alone but interconnected. I do recommend reading The Chef's Mail Order Bride first... just for character introduction... it's not necessary but will enhance the story. I love this authors voice and the way she hooks you into the story. Ms. Caldwell have well developed 3 dimensional characters and well this story got me in trouble with my husband as I was so lost in the story

Sweet little story but I feel the it was badly titled. The bride in the story isn't a mail order bride. In fact, she doesn't have a terrible large part and really is just a hiccup in the couple's story. Her part is more of a block between the characters before she ever arrives.
