Publisher's Summary

When her parents died, Molly McGregor did what she needed to survive in New York City all alone. She took a job for a well-respected banker, but made a discovery that put her life in danger. Now, in 1882, she is fleeing New York for the western frontier. Molly makes the desperate decision to become a mail order bride in Tombstone, Arizona Territory. She doesn't hope for much, just that her new husband will be strong enough to protect her from the danger she fears will follow.
Ben King was too busy making his fortune in silver to worry about a wife or family. Now he's rich, well known, owns half the town of Tombstone, and is utterly alone. When his heart becomes entangled with his best friend's new wife, he decides drastic action is required and contracts a mail order bride. He requests someone plain, someone simple to warm his hearth and home, someone he can be sure won't rouse his passion or complicate his life. He's tired of fancy women chasing him for his money, and even more tired of hoping any woman could be different. He doesn't believe in true love, and doesn't want the complications that would come with it. He doesn't have time for complicated. He has an empire to run.
But Molly is a shock to his senses. She doesn't care about his money or his fame. All she wants from him is a safe haven, security, and a new last name. Ben tries to keep his heart out of danger, but danger seems to be Molly's middle name. When a rich and powerful enemy chases his beautiful new bride halfway across the country to extract vengeance, Ben discovers his heart is not nearly as cold as he'd hoped. Their passion fires hot, hot enough to kill...more than hot enough to burn them both.

Story deserved a better performance...

I rarely listen to books, prefering to read. However, I have enjoyed this author's books so I wanted to listen to this book. (I have read the previous two novels in the series.)

The book is steamy, a bit more early on than in the previous two books in the series. That doesn't bother me, but I have always been able to like the characters in the series. I did not like Molly, the novel's heroine. Lia Frederick's performance made her more unlikable for me. She depicted her as whining and crying throughout the entire story. Also, Frederick made too many of the characters speak with a southern accent, even the villian who was from New York. (I received a coupon code to listen to this book with the understanding that I would give an honest, unbiased review.)

Story moves quickly.

What did you love best about Mail Order Baron?

That Molly finally won.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Molly had the patience of a saint. She tried to do the right thing even when she was hurting.

Which character – as performed by Lia Frederick – was your favorite?


If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

The struggle for love.

Any additional comments?

This was a good story but hard to put into words. Molly had to fight to live after running from a man who wanted her dead. Then she marries "the Baron" who was still carrying a love torch for another woman. The narrator conveyed the hurt, that Molly suffered, very well.
