Experience a Mail-Order Bride Story with a 
Fairy-Tale Romance

About the Book

Colorado 1880

Once upon a time, Rose was a barefoot dreamer, carving whimsical creatures from the driftwood she found on the beach. However, after the death of her father, Rose finds herself cut adrift. So she decides to answer an advertisement to become the bride of a blacksmith in Sweet Briar, Colorado, bravely leaving behind the coast of Maine and her beloved sandy beaches.

Living in the shadow of the Rockies, Emmett Southerland is a bit of a hopeless romantic—and always has been. He’s been eagerly awaiting the arrival of the dark-haired beauty in the photograph he keeps over his heart. However, once Rose arrives, he finds himself snowed in with her during the worst storm Colorado has seen in twenty-five years.

This sweet mail-order bride romance very loosely reimagines the classic tale of Sleeping Beauty, complete with a satisfying happily-ever-after. Sweet Briar Rose is a short novel of approximately 42,000 words.

Releases March 2018 from Indigo Road Publishing

Note to Potential Reviewers

Sweet Briar Rose is a short, clean romance novel, a bit on the sensual side. Readers who prefer light-to-no romance or only Christian fiction might want to skip this opportunity. However, for those who enjoy historical romance with a snowy setting, warm moments, and a light fairy-tale theme, don’t miss Lena’s latest!
