Brides of Prairie Gold by Maggie Osbourne

It figures that the first thing being hawked for sale here is a romance novel. LOL! Yeah, I have shelves of books to clear out to make room for more! I picked up this book on a whim a couple of years back at the MPH warehouse sales and am selling it as my bookshelves are simply bursting! As it's a secondhand book (me first-hand mah), the condition is not as perfect as my other books, but it still sports an uncreased spine and pages free of marks or dog-ears. p.s. Although secondhand, looks way better than the books in Pay Less Books (just that pages are going slightly yellow. Sorry!).

This book could be classified as historical romance - think Little House on the Prairie grown up - and recounts the adventures of twelve women (mail-order brides, so to speak) discovering who they really are as they journey across America in a "bride train" to meet their future husbands in Oregon. Life on wagon wheels, encounters with bandits and Indians, fording streams, yup all the necessary ingredients for a traditional prairie book are here. Not forgetting the compulsory hero(s) and unconventional heroine(s). *wink* There are 12 women after all... ... ...

So this is the synopsis on the back of the book...

The twelve women from Chastity, Missouri, meant trouble for wagon master Cody Snow. He was used to transporting guns and whiskey, not mail-order brides. Then he looked into the beautiful, defiant eyes of Perrin Waverly, a woman who had a past as painful as his own, and discovered an even bigger problem - his own desire. Now when he yelled "Wagons ho!" he set into motion a perilous odyssey for these spinsters and widows, a seventeen-year-old innocent, a Missouri belle, and the wagon train's handsome half-breed scout. All of them had reasons for heading west; all had secrets. Now all would discover that the greatest dangers lay within the heart, and at journey's end, a few just might find love...
