Kelli's Quill - In this issue...News about Kelli’s hot historical romance, Wilderness Bride, a new horror anthology, guest blogs & more
Happy Spring! This month in the Quill, I’m giving readers a sneak peek at my new historical romance, Wilderness Bride, and sharing news about my latest horror story.
On April 6, look for Wilderness Bride, my sixteenth Amber Quill Press romance. This traditional historical is set in the wilds of the Michigan Territory in 1823. The book was a lot of fun to write and is an exciting blend of adventure and tender romance.
A woman running from her past…straight into the arms of a wild stranger
In a moment of desperation, Kathleen Stanton flees her pampered life in Kingston, New York and ends up stranded in a small town in the Michigan Territory.
Out of money and lacking a means of escape, she impersonates a handsome stranger’s mail-order bride. Kathleen calls herself Michelle and begins living a lie with her “husband,” Luther, in an isolated mountain cabin. She tells herself the arrangement is temporary until she can move on.
Luther can’t believe his luck when his beautiful blonde bride arrives, but something doesn’t feel right about his new wife. She has terrifying nightmares involving a man named Roger and is reluctant to talk about where she came from. But Luther is harboring a secret about his background and fears Michelle will abandon him if she learns the truth about him—and his family.
The couple tries to maintain their rocky relationship as they work to fight brutal townspeople and overcome harsh living conditions. When circumstances force Michelle to stay longer than she expected, she succumbs to her growing attraction and falls in love with Luther. But when they finally give in to their desires and agree to become a proper man and wife, a dark figure from Michelle’s past catches up with her, putting her and Luther in grave danger.
