Publisher's Summary

When Karl Norwood' s mail-order bride meets an untimely demise on the way to the Montana Territory, Hetty Wentworth steps in to take her place. Hetty has no idea how she' s going to pretend to be all the things she isn' t - including the mother of two kids. She only knows her deception is necessary if she' s going to save two orphans from the awful fate she suffered as a child. Karl smells a rat when a much younger woman than he was expecting arrives with two children who look nothing like her. But his mail-order bride is so beautiful, he doesn' t object - until he realizes that his charming new wife has been lying...about everything. Can a woman forced to keep secrets and a man hindered by distrust ever hope to find happily ever after in each other's arms?

Excellent story and narration

The author did a wonderful job weaving the histories and the personalities of the characters into a great storyline. And the narrator!! I “read” on Audible and the narrator ratcheted the story up even more with her skill. Highly recommend.

Quality plot along w/ romance!

If you could sum up Montana Bride in three words, what would they be?

Touching, endearing, nerve-wracking

What did you like best about this story?

I loved how Hetty & Carl's relationship deepened & evolved. I love that Carl was plain - at first - to Hetty, but she soon realized he was so much more.

Have you listened to any of Julia Gibson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have never listened to Julia Gibson's performances. She is my new favorite narrator!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Hetty & Carl's similar Christmas gifts for one another. Also Andy's response to Grace's secret.

Love Joan Johnston!

I love American historical romance books and Joan Johnston does them wonderfully.

This entire series is full of strong women, sexy men, and passionate love. Is you enjoy books that take you back to Texas, Montana, Wyoming, and England, then this series is for you. All four books are on my highly recommend list and I have read them more than three or four times each.

Lovely story, Good Plot, Good Developed Characters

The story is so captivated, I can't stop myself till the end. The story is so well plotted, I love the characters; Carl, Hetty, Grace, Griffin, and Bao.
This will be my new favorite author and narrator.
About the narrator I was surprise she can do the Texan drawl, which is so convincing.
In short I love everything in this audiobook.
