Mallory: The Mail Order Bride (A West Texas Frontier Trilogy Book 3)


Mallory Metcalf Reynolds has run out of options. Desperate to find a solution to her increasing difficulties in providing for her family, she becomes a mail order bride and sets off on a journey to find, if not love, an unknown, soon to be husband and a secure future. As she takes the stagecoach to Fort Davis, Texas in 1877, she is abducted by Native Americans and turned over to the commander of the Fort, Colonel William Gregor. Gregor is on a mission to end the hostile relations with the Native Americans. As Mallory and Colonel William spend more time together, Mallory’s secret is revealed and it may threaten the new love she has discovered with the Colonel. 

“Mallory: The Mail Order Bride” is a sweet romance with all the thrills and turbulent trials of new love. The story may be book three in this West Texas Frontier, but it reads clearly as a standalone with a warm and fuzzy happily ever after. Hebby Roman does an outstanding job of including plot twists and an equal number of bumps in the road for the hero and heroine to overcome, which adds to the climactic ending in this endearing romance. In addition, Ms. Roman adds in a bit of inspirational faith for those readers who love a clean, heartwarming and Christian read. The story is slightly clichéd and would greatly benefit from a final proofread to clear up punctuation and grammar issues, but overall “Mallory: The Mail Order Bride” is enchanting and awaiting its next lover of reading American historical romance.
