Publisher's Summary

Jesse Donovan spent the last four years chasing gold, hoping to convince his New York fiancée to join him. He's now rich, successful, and eager for his wife-to-be to make the trip out west. But now that it's time to travel to Hope's Crossing and marry Jesse, the New York socialite sends him a letter informing him of her intention to marry another. Heartbroken and lonely, Jesse contacts Matchmaker & Co. for a mail order bride.
Clarissa "Clare" Griggs is the eldest daughter of a poor farmer who is barely surviving off the land. At 23, she is an old maid and a burden on her family. Clare knows what love looks like, and she wants a family of her own. Volunteering as a mail order bride seems to be the perfect answer to her dilemma. Her family will be better off, and she can find her own love story, happiness, and finally become a mother.
But Hope's Crossing isn't the ideal location that Jesse or Clare dreamed. A bitter rival is trying to kill Jesse and take his mine. Jesse's broken heart won't allow him to love Clare the way she needs, and Clare refuses to live with a man who doesn't love her. When the enemy threatens Clare's life, Jesse realizes Clare has become a part of him, a vital piece of his heart and soul - but is he too late?

The Irreplaceable Bride

After being jilted by his fiancee, mine owner Jesse Donavan decided to send for a Mail-Order Bride, using the same agency his friend Sheriff Sam Longworth, had used, Matchmaker & Co. Clare Griggs decided that at twenty-three it was time to leave home. This is a very sweet romance, clean and interesting. I think you will enjoy it as much as I did.
