When Gavin Blackstock lost a leg in an IED explosion defending his country, he lost his job, his friends and his chances for a normal life with a wife and children. He figures he won't ever find a bride who will accept him as an incomplete man. Until a friend points him to a mail-order bride service.  

Wanted: Bride to live on a ranch in Montana. Must be willing to work hard and bear children.

As a princess of a small European nation, Aurelia St. George is required to marry and produce an heir before her thirtieth birthday or the kingdom will fall under the rule of the next person in the royal lineage. After two consecutive fiancé’s die before she can wed them, Aurelia is convinced she will have to go into stealth-mode to find a husband. Aurelia stumbles on an ad for a mail-order bride that might be just what she needs to meet her royal deadline. Not only is the man willing, but she can hide in Montana until her birthday and the birth of her baby.

Response: Woman with biological clock ticking seeks groom with a family in mind. Willing to work hard and bear children. 

Gavin can’t believe his luck when his pretty bride arrives, but soon finds out he’s got to protect her or lose her. Together, they navigate a wedding that could potentially be under fire, only to lose their hearts in the process.


  • The Princess and The Navy Seal

    By Agent$$$$
    Gavin Blackstock, a former Navy Seal, is restless. He loves working with horses on the ranch, but is unsatisfied with his personal life. He wants what several of his friends have, family, and children. While he truly believes no one could love an “incomplete” man, he still dreams of a happily ever after. Gavin has found once women find out he’s missing a leg, they lose interest. So his friend, Lori, posts an ad seeking a mail order bride on his behalf. Princess Olivia St. George of Lastovia is in desperate need of a husband. In order to become Queen, Olivia (Aurelia), must marry and produce an heir by the age of thirty...She has less than a year. Every time she becomes engaged, her fiancés die “unexpectedly”. Going by the name Aurelia, she responds to Gavin’s ad and heads to Montana. She doesn’t really believe this will be her HEA, but hopes Gavin will provide her with an heir. This is my first Mail Order Bride, insta-love novel and I LOVED it! Gavin and Aurelia were a perfect match! After losing his leg in combat, Gavin felt unworthy of love. Aurelia saw the real Gavin and accepted him for who he was. Gavin provided Aurelia with a sense of safety, belonging, and family that she had been missing since the unexpected deaths of her family. At the ranch, Aurelia was free to enjoy activities, horses, etc that she no longer made time for in Lastovia. The sniper and suspense had me on edge! I can’t wait to find out what’s in store for Lori! I read a gifted copy and all opinions stated are my own.
  • An enjoyable read

    By 777sails
    I received a complimentary copy of this book and I also purchased a copy. This was a wonderful story. I adore the Brotherhood Protector stories. This is a great addition to the series. This is a quick read that was done in one sitting. This was full of suspense that kept me turning the pages and glued to my e-reader. The scenes played out like a movie. The two main protagonists were ones that were easy to cheer for. They were so perfect for each other. This was written in my favorite dual POVs format. Reading their thoughts helped to clarify what each of them were going through. I just hated to see the story coming to an end. I highly recommend this to anyone!

    Where do you go when you want a wife and kids, but haven't had any luck finding one? Gavin believes he will never have his dream until his friend Lori posts an ad for him on a mail order bride site. Enter his dream woman. Oh wait, maybe not quite the dream he expected. She's lost two fiances previously and needs to disappear, get married and have a baby all in ten months. Looks like he's her dream come true. Until ... This book contains adventure, mayhem, marriage, love and horses whispering. It is a good blend of everything. Definitely a quick read with intrigue and a HEA.
  • Great characters!

    By Cheryl SDS
    This is book 12 in the Brotherhood Protectors series and it features Gavin and Aurelia. This was not a match made in heaven but more like a match made on the Internet on a mail-order bride website. This action packed, sweet romance has a little steam and a lot of fantastic characters. Mail-order brides are from way back in the western horse and buggy days but this fabulous author has made it into a modern day romance.
