Summary

Here comes the bride…and he isn’t happy. 

Part I - "Male-Order Bride" - With her father’s passing, Audra Drysdale accepts she needs a man to save her ranch. A mail-order groom will keep her prideful men working and a neighboring rancher at bay. What could go wrong?

Part II - "A Proposal So Magical" - Evergreen’s sheriff, Dent Hernandez, has fallen in love and now actually has to do something about it or risk losing the woman he loves.

Once, the toughest lawman in the territory, Dent has been brought to his knees by love and he knows it’s time to ask Amy to marry him. He has to make the proposal in a truly magical and courageous way. A handsome ghost from her past, though, has designs of his own on Amy.

Hunting outlaws was never this hard....

Fantastic Audible Listen🎧 I Love this Series!

More Evergreen Greatness! Love this series!
Ask Me to Marry You
The Brides of Evergreen, Book 2
By: Heather Blanton
Narrated by: Meghan Kelly

I thoroughly enjoyed the first book in “The Brides of Evergreen”, Dent and Amy’s story in “Hang Your Heart on Christmas” and this book is just as great and heartfelt. This novella contains two stories, it starts off with Audra and Dillon’s story and includes a nice switch from mail order bride to groom. After her Dad dies Audra inherits the ranch and is fully capable to do so, but in those days woman were not looked upon to do so, ranch hands not wanting to be bossed around by a woman leave, some were pressured to leave for other reasons as well. So her Uncle comes up with an idea to find her a husband. Dillon is was sitting in the jail cell being railroaded for a crime he did not commit is offered a plea deal to get him out of jail. That deal included being Audra husband for a year. I loved how this worked out and what it leads up to. This a short story but there is plenty of drama, twists, angst, and a nice build up to friendship and romance. The second story is a continuation of Amy and Dent’s story, they are furthering their relationship. Amy is settled nicely into the town and is a well respected teacher. Jeremy, a friend from her former home in Ohio comes bearing gifts for her and plans of his own. More twists and drama here but I love how it ended. It was nice seeing the other town folk including Audra and Dillon in this story too. I am forward to see what type of trouble Jeremy will be stirring up since he decided to stay in town. Heather Blanton, thanks for another great story!

I listened to the Audible edition, Meghan Kelly is an awesome narrator and voice performer. She brings the character to life, gives each their own voice and personality. She does a wonderful job projecting the emotions of the characters and the drama of the story in her performance. She is an entertaining storyteller and a pleasure to listen to. Thanks for another awesome listen🎧

The best men win

This is an audiobook of TWO stories!

Male Order Bride
Instead of a man seeking a woman, this convicted man marries a women in exchange for his freedom! Loads of fun! I loved the fact that they both had to humble themselves!

A Proposal so magical
Just when life couldn’t get any better, a blast from the past disrupts the apple cart! Perfect ending!

Twice the happiness

I liked the idea of a mail order groom and the difficulties that came to him. Those things enough him and his bride in name closer. The second story was about letting go of the past and nor seeking vengeance since the love of a man and woman along with God is what matters most. I received a complimentary audio and this review is voluntary.

The Magic of Love!

This is a 2-book story made up of 'A Male-Order Bride' and 'A Proposal So Magical'.
The first one is a new story about a young lady who, after the death of her father, is running the ranch, but she wants a Male-Order Husband so that it looks like he is running the show.
There is an older neighbor who wants to marry her so he can have more children but also so that he can get his hands on her ranch. She really does not want this to happen.
The second story is a follow-on from the first book in this series, 'Hang Your Heart on Christmas', and both stories in this book come together to tell us the outcomes of their romances.
These are very nicely written clean romances with menfolk who are not afraid to stand up for what they believe in and to win their ladies hearts.
I enjoyed listening to the versatile voices of Meghan Kelly and the wonderful talent of both Heather Blanton, the author and Meghan Kelly make these stories really entertaining and enjoyable so I am happy to recommend them to you.
I requested and listened to a promotional copy of the audiobook which was supplied by the narrator and my voluntary review above is unbiased.

Two for one!

What a great treat to have two stories in this Brides of Evergreen book! The first gives us Audra. She takes over the ranch when her father dies, but finds that running it as a woman has it's disadvantages. She decides that a husband will made the difference and she marries Dillon. The agreement is for a year, so she can get her ranch in order and he can serve out a prison term. Will this "male" order bride live happily ever after? Book 2 leads us to Dent and Amy. When Amy's polished friend shows up to help set up the library, and tries to woo her, will Dent tuck his head and bow out? I love these two stories. They are full of great characters just warm my heart. I love the growing relationship between Dillon and Audra. Their circumstances are tough. Between public humiliation and losing men, their situation does not look promising, but that does not stop their feelings from growing. And then we have Dent, who is impossible not to fall for. He is all man, though not polished but his feelings are true. His journey to Amy is one to make your heart sing. Great stories to keep you smiling.

Meghan Kelly is just amazing with her narrations of this book. I love her voice and cannot say enough good things about it! She knows her characters well, and with that is able to make sure their personality shines through. She chooses the best voice for each, gives them all the emotional draw and inflections so we can feel with them and gives a listen well worth the credit!

Wonderful Story!

Heather Blanton wrote an exciting tale of the old west involving marriage and the men and women that make the time of our past. Meghan Kelly just didn’t read the story, she performed it. I love the way she can portray the male and female characters. Any one can listen to this sweet story.

A Male order groom...a conflicted lawman...tell me more!

This is my first intro to the series and I thoroughly enjoyed it! In the first story, Audra inherits the family ranch when her father is thrown from his horse and dies. She is exasperated by the lack of respect from her ranch hands just because of her gender. In addition, the owner of the neighboring ranch is after her and her ranch...but she’ll die first before she admits defeat. She goes to her uncle, and attorney, who arranges for mail order brides. Audra requests a MALE order groom!! What better way to fend off the unwanted advances of her old neighbor as well as have control over her ranch hands? Dillion Pine is in jail, charged with conspiracy to murder and is looking at 3-5 years in prison. When his father’s friend, and matchmaking attorney, offers him a way out of his impending prison sentence, Dillon jumps at the chance. That is, until he gets the details...he’ll have to marry Audra for a year so she can keep her ranch. After some deliberation, Dillon agrees and he marries Audra. Now he just has to survive living with the bossy woman for a year. But when word gets out that he’s a male order groom, and the taunting begins, will Dillon stick around or run? Will Audra give up her dreams to keep Dillon safe? This is a quick story with more action than a re-run of the old western ‘Gunsmoke’! Narration was on point! The narrator did a great job with the various characters...even the males!
In the second story, school teacher, Amy, is settling down into her new job and new town...and new love with the town sheriff. She is hoping that he will soon propose...but that’s in jeopardy when a family friend arrives with the rest of her belongings and a hefty donation of books to the town library. Sheriff Dent Hernandez is an ex US Marshall...and hangman...something that he’s not particularly proud of...but he loves Amy and is ready to propose. However, Dent needs guidance and goes to the church to pray...there he meets the pastor, who explains the meaning of true love. Will Amy choose the right guy? Another quick story of choices, true love and waiting on God’s timing. Once again, narration was spot on!
I voluntarily accepted a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

CHRISTIAN Clean Mail Order Spouse

This is a delightfully entertaining mini anthology with two novellas. Set in the Old West, Evergreen, WY, these are Christian romances, so no sex is described. I am not a devout Christian, so these have a bit too much preaching for me. BUT, all the prayers and witnessing are entirely plot and character appropriate. I feel that those seeking Christian romances would find the few moments of Christianity entirely appropriate.

Marry Me Please

I lucked out with this audiobook. I got two books to listen to, Ask Me to Marry You and A Proposal So Magical. Narrator was perfect. In the first book, Audra hates to admit it, but she needs a man to help her run her ranch. No one thinks as a female, she can do anything. She asks her Uncle to get her a husband and Dillion is her intended. Neither of them, like the situation, but fight to make it work.
In the second book, you have the sheriff, Dent who loves Amy, but can't move on it fast enough for her. Until another man comes to town.
Both great stories.
I won a copy of this book by the author and this is my honest review.
