Maggie has an unexpected suitor—in a red suit.
A schoolteacher plays matchmaker for the local Santa, who also happens to be her brother’s fiercest competitor. But she’s the only bride he wants…if he can just convince her they would be the perfect match.
Schoolteacher Maggie O’Brien comes home for Christmas on a mission: to gather toys for orphans living on poor farms around Fort Scott. She’s made her list, but there’s no Santa in sight. Not until a local shopkeeper volunteers his services.
Gordon Sumner sets his mind on winning the black-haired Irish beauty, but Maggie’s brother is his fiercest competitor and O’Brien’s loyal sister gives him the cold shoulder. Undaunted, he comes up with a clever plan.
Maggie sees through the fake Santa’s ploy, but with Christmas just around the corner, she’s running out of time to make the holiday happy for needy children. She accepts his help—with a plan of her own. She’ll play matchmaker and find her persistent suitor the perfect bride.
Santa’s Mail-Order Bride is the sequel to Victoria, Bride of Kansas, part of the unprecedented 50-book series, American Mail-Order Brides.
See what reviewers are saying:
“Ms. Burke is one of my go to authors when I want a smile, excitement and a clean read with wonderful humor, filled with lighthearted passion.” ~ Cyn’s Reviews
“Santa’s Mail-Order Bride takes two wayward souls and places them in a whirlwind. Maggie’s loyalty to her brother, while the right thing is most cases, will make or break this young woman’s happiness. While Mr. Sumner at first seems the shady character, his progression in this tale makes known his true self and the lengths that he will go to for the woman he wants are quite the story.” ~ Kimberly Rocha, Book Obsessed Chicks
