Clear Creek was a quaint little place, one most men took one look at, and decided to settle. There was only one problem. There were no women. In fact, the town was so small, most women took one look at it, laughed, and whipped their horses into a frenzy to get as far from it as possible before their husbands could protest.

Duncan Cooke, aka The Duke of Stantham, also had a problem. He had a huge estate in England to manage, one not far from London, and it came with all the problems one would expect with an estate in disarray. Including six unwed cousins, women no man would touch for fear of losing either a limb, or worse. Strange things happened to all who tried to court them, so they were left untouched, and very unwed.
But Duncan realized that Clear Creek had exactly what he needed. Men! And so with the help of his brother’s wife Sadie, he concocted a plan to send his cousins to Clear Creek as mail order brides! He just hoped the calamity that often followed them, didn’t find its way across the sea as well …
Since this book was free via Amazon to download, I thought I’d give it a try an am I glad up did! The dialog between August and Penelope was down right hilarious — I don’t know how many times I laughed throughout the book. Plus the spider scene with the three sisters was to die for, although I will admit I’d act the same as they did (shrieking and running a muck trying to get the spider off of them). Can’t wait to see what’s in store for Constance and Eloise in the next books.
