Title: Bobbins and Boots
Author: Shanna Hatfield
Genre: Western, Historical Romance
How does an act of kindness result in… marriage?
Born dirt-poor into a life of hardship, Allie Tillman seizes the opportunity to better her situation by answering an advertisement for a mail-order bride in the West. Upon her arrival in Baker City, Oregon, she discovers her intended is a low-down, lying thief. Determined not to marry him, she grasps at the one thing that will keep him from forcing her to be his wife — marrying another man.
Good-natured cowboy Ben Amick had no idea a simple trip into town would completely change his life. When he happens upon a mail-order bride desperate to avoid marrying her fiancé, Ben does the first thing that pops into his head and marries her. Willingly, he gives her the protection of his name and his arms, never expecting her to capture his heart.
Humorous, heartfelt, and awash in sweet romance, Bobbins and Boots captures the tender and tumultuous emotions of falling in love.
USA Today Bestselling Author Shanna Hatfield writes character-driven romances with relatable heroes and heroines. Her historical westerns have been described as “reminiscent of the era captured by Bonanza and The Virginian” while her contemporary works have been called “laugh-out-loud funny, and a little heart-pumping sexy without being explicit in any way.”
Convinced everyone deserves a happy ending, this hopeless romantic is out to make it happen one story at a time. When she isn’t writing or indulging in chocolate (dark and decadent, please), Shanna hangs out with her husband, lovingly known as Captain Cavedweller.
Shanna is a member of Western Writers of America, Women Writing the West, Romance Writers of America, Sweet Romance Reads, Cowboy Kisses, and Pioneer Hearts.
Finally, he let his gaze settle on Miss Tillman. The hope sparkling in those beautiful eyes made him lose the ability to think with any reason or sense.
Words spilled out of his mouth even though he had no idea where they originated. “It looks like you need a husband, Miss Tillman. If you aren’t opposed to that man being me, I’d be pleased to marry you.”
“I wouldn’t be opposed, Mr. Amick.” A blush covered her cheeks, making the freckles that dusted them stand out in contrast to her smooth skin.
Ben fought down the urge to give her a comforting hug. Instead, he took a step back and looked to Edwin. “If I go find Pastor Eagan, do you think we could exchange vows in your parlor?”
“Certainly, Ben. We’ll be ready when you return.” Edwin slapped him on the back with a broad smile as Hattie hurried up the front steps, tugging Allie along behind her.
