About the Author: (from Amazon)


A USA TODAY Best Selling author and two-time READERS' FAVORITE GOLD MEDAL winner, S. R. Mallery--as her fans say--"brings history to life."

They say I'm as eclectic as my characters. I've been a singer, a composer, a calligrapher, a quilt artist, and an ESL/Reading teacher. But it is the world of writing historical fiction where I feel I've come "home." It's where I've received various awards and in addition, get to do my second love: Research.

When people talk about the news of the day, or when I listen to music, my overactive imagination likens the story to a similar kind of news in the past, which helps me conjure up scenes between characters I've yet to meet.

Book Review-The Poor Rancher’s Unwanted Bride: A Clean Western Historical Romance-Evelyn Boyett

Friday, October 15, 2021



Shayna has such high expectations about the man she would marry as a mail order bride. Little did she know the person who wrote the letters was not the man she was about to marry!

Ethan, a hard working young man who had major upsets in his life lived with his step brother-their parents had died. He was more like a slave--he was the one who wrote the letters because his brother decided he needed a wife-but could not be bothered to do the writing.

What happens when Shayna arrives will make you want to cry. Ethan could not stand by and watch this woman being threatened--they escaped in the night to a friends house. They then traveled to where the Gold Rush was in California. They knew the step brother would come after them and were very careful.

Did the vicious step brother catch up with them? Will there be a happily ever after for these star-crossed soul mates? Read the book to find out--I am sure you will enjoy it!!

About the Book: (from Amazon)

After finding out that her parents lied to her for years, all Shayna wants from her future husband is honesty – but when she finds herself keeping a devastating secret from the man she loves, she realizes it’s not always easy to tell the truth.

Ethan has never managed to escape the trauma he’s experienced, and all he wants is a fresh start with someone who truly loves him – only to realize his new life is more connected to his past than he could have ever imagined.

Her mother’s dying wish was for Shayna to find a husband to take care of her. Unable to deny this last request, she responded to an ad from a rancher seeking a mail-order bride and gave up her life in Texas to move to California – but Benjamin is nothing like he seemed from his letters.

Since his stepfather’s death, Ethan has been at his stepbrother’s beck and call, even exchanging letters to find Benjamin a wife. When Shayna arrives, however, and Ethan sees the danger he’s put her in, he knows he can’t let her stay – he’ll have to run away with her.

With the help of some good friends, Ethan and Shayna make it to a gold rush camp determined to start over. But Benjamin won’t let them get away so easily, and when their own secrets start tearing them apart, will they be able to trust each other enough to escape his stepbrother once again?

If you like fast-paced clean romance and action-packed stories, you won't be able to put down this addictive Novel by Evelyn Boyett.

"The Poor Rancher’s Unwanted Bride" is a stand-alone Western Historical Romance Novel of approximately 500 pages.
