Perfect for the Preacher | Spotlight & Excerpt

Welcome to Perfect for the Preacher blog blitz and giveaway, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!


What kind of woman would answer an advertisement and marry a stranger?

Escape into the history of the American West along with nine couples whose relationships begin with advertisements for mail-order brides. Placing their dreams for new beginnings in the hands of a stranger, will each bride be disappointed, or will some find true love?

Perfect for the Preacher by Megan Besing
1897, Indiana
Fresh from seminary, Amos Lowry believes marriage will prove to his skeptical congregation that he’s mature. If only his mail-order bride wasn’t an ex-saloon girl, or worse, pregnant.

Also includes novellas from Noelle Marchand, Donna Schlachter, Sherri Shackelford, Michelle Shocklee, Ann Shorey, Liz Tolsma, Jennifer Uhlarik and Kathleen Y’Barbo.

Publisher: Barbour Books
Release Date: February 1, 2018


His hands found hers, surrounding them in warmth. “Please stay. I held every intention of making a grander impression on you…m–my bride.” He pressed his lips together as if the words tasted funny.

“I’m the one who must apologize. I was only caught off guard. I believed you’d write again to tell me of your date of arrival. I had planned on sending funds for your travels…” His fingers shifted, almost linking in between a few of hers. His touch didn’t bring fear, but rather a gentle promise of safety. A hope of a true home waiting where she could put everything behind her. “But I’m glad you’re here now.”

“Then…we’re still to wed?”
