Blemished Brides Western Historical Romance

IN HIS EYES (Book 1)

Carefree and strong-willed, Katherine Montgomery is the daughter of a successful Montana horse rancher. When a tragic accident claims her father’s life, Katherine is left to deal with an overbearing mother whose agenda does not include a young daughter. Fate deals her another devastating blow, leaving her to face an uncertain future far away from everything and everyone she’s loved.

Trace Hawley used to push the limits of the law, and no one was going to plan his future for him. The death of the man who always had his back leaves him to finally face responsibility. The promises he made a decade ago have shaped him into the man he is today, and will bring him face to face with the one girl from his past he always tried to avoid.

After a ten year absence, Katherine returns to the ranch she once loved to discover the shocking reason her mother summoned her home. Surprised to find Trace still at the ranch, her childhood infatuation grows into something far stronger as he challenges her to lead the life she once wanted, but seems to have forgotten. When Katherine is forced to make a choice between saving her father’s dreams or following her own, Trace might be the only one who holds the key to both.

  1. Any plan to offer the audio version of your blemished bride series at a reduced price if the kindle version is also purchased? For the sake of my kids and the cleanliness of my house, I have transitioned to mostly audio books over the last year in an effort to be productive. Would love to read this series. Have read and loved all your other ones!

    1. Hi Dana,
      Unfortunately, I have no control over pricing on the audiobooks. It would be awesome if I could offer sales of my audiobooks at times, but Audible/Amazon, prices them at their discretion.
      However, Audible does provide me with a limited number of gift copies, so if you'd like one for each of the Blemished Brides books, I would love to send them to you. Please email me at ynpdreamer at gmail dot com
      The first two are available, the third, In His Arms, is currently in production.


  2. I loved book one, Trace and Katie's story. Really unique plot, great characters!

    1. Thank you so much for stopping by the blog, Jean! So glad you enjoyed Trace and Katie and their story! :D

  3. I loved all three stories. I love that they intermingled between them too. The stories themselves were touching and realistic with their own touch of problems. Is there a #4 in sight or is this series finished? I like to know then I do/don't look for the next one ... If not, I'll switch to the Yellowstone Romance series.

    1. Hi Nicole,
      Thank you! So glad you enjoyed the three books so far in the series. Yes, there's going to be a Book 4 (this is an open-ended series at the moment, so whenever I think of a new unique plot, I can write a new book). Book 4 is titled In His Kiss, and will hopefully be coming out sometime this fall. Please consider signing up of for my new-release mailing list, then you'll be notified as soon as it comes out. (the link is in the top right corner of the blog).
      ~Best wishes, Peggy
