NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLERA DESPERATE DECEPTION THE PROMISE OF FOREVER When Karl Norwood's mail-order bride meets an untimely demise on the way to the Montana Territory, Hetty Wentworth steps in to take her place.

She only knows her deception is necessary if she's going to save two orphans from the awful fate she suffered as a child. Karl smells a rat when a much younger woman than he was expecting arrives with two children who look nothing like her. But his mail-order bride is so beautiful, he doesn't object—until he realizes that his charming new wife has been lying . . . about everything. Can a woman forced to keep secrets and a man hindered by distrust ever hope to find happily ever after in each other's arms?Praise for Montana Bride "[A] swiftly paced romance."Publishers Weekly "Montana Bride is a compelling read and definitely a noteworthy addition to a great series."Fresh Fiction "Joan Johnston knows how to spin a story that will get to the readers every time.
