Description

"Melissa Jagears is a stand-out talent! Her fresh new voice is strong, stylish, and makes A Bride for Keeps a page-turner for anyone who fancies a stirring love story."
-Rosslyn Elliot, author of Fairer Than Morning and Sweeter Than Birdsong

"A Bride for Keeps
treats readers to an engaging, prairie romance...delivering a heartwarming, satisfying read."
-Maggie Brendan, CBA bestselling author of The Heart of the West and The Blue Willow Brides series.

"Melissa Jagears has penned a tender tale of a mail-order bride who takes both the groom--and herself--by surprise when love comes softly...quietly... to heal their broken hearts."
-Julie Lessman, author of Love at any Cost

"A Bride for Keeps is just beautiful. It put me in mind of Janette Oke's sweet prairie romances but with a bit more edge, which I found compelling...I loved it."
-Mary Connealy, author of Fired Up


Everett Cline will never humiliate himself by seeking a mail-order bride. Not again. He's already been jilted by three mail-order brides and figures a wife just isn't in his future. However, a well-meaning neighbor hasn't given up on seeing him settled, so she goes behind his back to bring yet another woman to town for him.

Julia Lockwood has never been anything more than a pretty pawn for her father or a business acquisition for her former fiance. A mail-order marriage in faraway Kansas is a last resort, but she'll do anything to leave her life in Massachusetts and the heartbreak she's experienced there.

Although Everett doesn't see how a beautiful, cultured woman like Julia could be happy sharing his simple life, he could really use a helpmate on his homestead. Determined to prove she's more than just a pretty face, Julia agrees to a marriage in name only. Faced with the harsh realities of life on the prairie and hesitant to explore the tentative feelings growing between them, can Everett and Julia ever let each other in long enough to fall in love?

Customer Reviews

Bride for Keeps

A stirring love story from a fresh new voice. I couldn't put the book down until I finished the last page! Looking forward to more from this author.

Loved it!

To be honest, since there weren't any reviews written I was a little hesitant to buy this book but I'm so glad I did. From the first few pages I was drawn into the story and characters. I couldn't put the book down and I read it in two days. I am now looking forward to reading the prequel!

A Persistent Groom

A mail-order bride not ordered by the groom. Having failed in four attempts at finding a bride, Everett is helped by his best friend's wife when she brings a fifth mail-order bride to Salt Flatts, Kansas for him. He is reluctant to go forward with the arrangement and she is reluctant to form a close relationship with any man due to shattered trust. A story of love happening to two people afraid to trust. When God's will is allowed to happen, amazing things transpire. A good book with humor, tension, honesty, and love formed by a pestle in a crucible.
