A Groom for Violet

Laura Ashwood

A widow looking for a safe haven.

Violet Montgomery answers a mail-order bride ad and flees Charleston with her beloved little dog, Daisy, in order to escape her unscrupulous aunt - only to find herself widowed within a month. With nowhere to turn, she accepts her mother-in-law's invitation to stay in Last Chance. She never imaged her husband's older brother would show up and turn her life upside down.

A man determined to do his duty.

Emmet Stapleton enjoys his life and career in Denver, happy to leave the small town he grew up in behind him. But when his brother is killed in a freak blizzard, family duty brings him back to the little farm in Last Chance. He never expected to find his brother's widow still living in the family home, or to be so attracted to her.

A love neither of them expected.

They're polar opposites, and clash within minutes of meeting. Yet they're drawn to each other in ways they can't explain. When Violet's aunt shows up and accuses her of wrongdoing, will Emmet defend her? When Daisy is injured, will Violet lose the last connection to her past? Will Violet's aunt succeed in forcing her to return to Charleston, or will Violet find the love and acceptance she's longing for in Last Chance?

Find out in this clean and wholesome historical romance.


A Groom for Violet is a sweet romance that fans of Love Comes Softly and When Calls The Heart will love. While part of a series, this book can be read as a standalone.
