MAIL ORDER: NOELLE by Author Kathleen Lawless **An Imposter for Christmas Series**

It's my pleasure to welcome friend and author, Kathleen Lawless, to Romance Sweet Reads to celebrate her Book Birthday for Mail Order Noelle, part of the An Imposter for Christmas series.

Free-thinking, ambitious Noelle looks to move West to improve her newspaper writing career. Wealthy cattle baron, Grant Chisholm has offered for her sister’s hand, but Merry has other ideas and the girls arrange a switch.

Grant seeks a woman to marry who won’t hamper his lifestyle, but will free him from his grandmother’s matchmaking efforts. His old school mate’s shy, reserved sister seems the ideal choice.

Noelle only needs to get established in the West before she tells Grant he married the wrong sister. Surely a reasonable and wealthy man will annul the marriage and turn her dowry over to her.

Being in Grant’s household provides Noelle interesting research. So does spending time with her husband. Before she can tell him the truth, her sister Merry arrives, and everything falls apart.

Grant was aware of the desk clerk’s eyes following him as he paced back and forth in the lobby of the hotel, pulling his timepiece from his pocket every few minutes before casting an eye toward the staircase. What was keeping the blasted woman?

Finally, a young woman appeared at the top of the stairs, a half-smile tugging at her full red lips as she rested one slim hand on the balustrade and made her descent. Grant couldn’t take his eyes off her. He felt the way he imagined a man drowning might feel. At the mercy of something beyond his control.

He gave himself a mental shake as she reached the bottom step. Two long strides took him to her side and he caught her hand in both of his. “Merry Russell. Look at you. All grown up.”

Her hand in his felt as if it had been made for him, and his grip tightened, reluctant to release her. Suddenly he was overcome with the urge to keep her safe.

A compelling half-smile played with her luscious lips. “I hope you find the end result of my awkward years pleasing to the eye.”

Grant nearly choked. Pleasing to the eye? The poor girl clearly had no idea the effect of her appearance on mere, mortal men. He tucked her hand into the crook of his elbow. “I am happy to see you do not favor your brother in the slightest. Now come. The preacher is waiting and grandmama is most anxious to meet you.”

“The same grandmother who threatened to choose a bride for you if you didn’t get on with the business of marriage?”

“Yes. Thank you for rescuing me from falling victim to my grandmother’s matchmaking efforts.”

USA Today Bestselling author, Kathleen Lawless, blames a misspent youth watching Rawhide, Maverick and Bonanza for her fascination with cowboys, which doesn’t stop her from creating a wide variety of interests and occupations for her many alpha male heroes.

Her hero, Steele, in HER UNDERCOVER COWBOY, is a modern-day cowboy, so when she was wooed by a man called Steel— while he’s not a cowboy, he is an alpha male and her forever hero. Which is why all of her stories end Happily Ever After.
