Ginny Sterling is a pen name for an Indie romance writer. She has lived in several different parts of the United States and settled finally in Kentucky. She spends most of her free time writing, quilting, shopping or watching a select few television shows. Ginny has a twisted fascination with collecting Starbucks coffee mugs from all over the country and adores the smell of coffee brewing. Her collection has literally filled over six kitchen cabinets...and does she stop? No. Ginny loves to write (and read) books that make her smile, laugh, or cry. She has been known to cry at Hallmark commercials and still cannot watch the movie "Titanic" or "The Notebook" to this day without bawling for hours. Softy!
When a riptide washes vacationing Emeline Hastings out to sea, she thinks it's the end. It's not, though - she wakes up to strange, new surroundings in Boston in the year 1770. A magical woman named Eve steps in and decides that the best way to make Emeline acclimate to her new time is to give her a spouse, a handsome colonist. Em's immediately handfasted to her virile savior before she can even learn his name.
William Spencer doesn't have time for a relationship. He's working hard to defend his country from the British by supplying the colonial uprising. It's the worst time to have personal ties, and yet nothing could have prepared him from his instant attraction to Emeline. She is lovely, yet bold and intriguing, so very different from the other women he's known.
But can he take a wife with the threat of treason hanging over his head? Can Emeline hope for a lifetime with William when her second chance might be just as doomed?
Riley Butler has it all, or so she thinks. When her car swerves into oncoming traffic, she makes a desperate wish for a second chance at life. Dropped in the middle of a grassy field dressed in a chic business suit and sexy high heels, she looks distinctly out of place compared to her surroundings. Wooden buildings, saddled horses and strange stares all greet her as she stumbles her way into Dallas, 1845. She meets a magical woman named Eve who pushes Riley out the front door quite literally and into a new life as a mail order bride.
Riley’s first impression of John is quite daunting. He is unkempt, unshaven and unappealing at first glance. But underneath it all, she sees a tenderness in him that calls to her soul. She feels herself drawn to his frontier life and what being married to him could bring her. Can she give up modern gadgets and conveniences in order to have a lifetime of love?
