Town MMail-order bride Millie Donovan was looking forward to meeting Sam Larson, a Kansas homesteader, who she is sure, from reading his heartfelt letters, will provide her with the love and safety she wants and needs. Millie arrives on the train, not realizing that her husband-to-be was killed in an accident, until Clear Creek’s town marshal informs her of the situation. Town Marshal Adam Wilerson never plans to marry due to his dangerous job. After reading letters found at his friend’s home following his untimely death which were sent from his friend’s mail-order bride, he can’t help thinking of the woman, and believes he may be in love with her himself. But instead of sending Millie on the train back to her former home, he finds himself welcoming her—and her two-year-old charge—into his house, and into his heart. When danger threatens, Millie faces it head–on to protect the people she loves, including the town marshal. Can Adam keep the peace in town—and his house—or will the man following Millie cause an uproar that will endanger them both, and ruin their chance of a life together?...

    Mollie Marries a MarshalI wanted to like this story, but it seems all my time was reading about all the characters in this book and in the future books in the series. Where was the story? I quit reading at 50%.

    I understand that a 1-star review is harsh, but this book has no romance. NO ROMANCE, in a romance novel. There is no chemistry described, and no kiss, just nothing. Complete waste of time. I also love western/historical romance, and this just had no charm.

    This was a fairly good story, it touched on domestic abuse and how it affects children. I like the hero, Adam and the way he dealt with his life being turned upside down. I like Millie as well, she may not have been Tate's mother, but she was a good one.

    Linda Hubalek has written a very charming mail-order bride tale. We meet our two protagonists at the train station in Clear Creek, Kansas. Millie Donovan is a strong, beautiful and determined young woman who is a casualty of the Irish Potato famine. She, with her family, migrated to Chicago. Life in the new world has brought heartache and tragedy to this young woman. To escape these hard times, she becomes a mail-order bride for Sam Larson. Marshal Adam Wilerson, a friend of Sam Larson, has the daunting task of informing Ms. Donovan that her fiancé has died. The quandary that the marshal finds him in is that he does not know what Ms. Donovan looks like or the exact day of her arrival. He keeps watch and is intrigued by a mysterious young woman with a young child. Suspecting that this woman might be the mail-order bride, the marshal approaches her with the sad news. The marshal is curious about her and assumes that this strange pair is mother and child. His heart goes out to them. The marshal is strangely attracted to this young woman who arouses a strong need in him to protect her. What lays ahead for these two? Will Millie return to Chicago? What has happened to this woman? Why does he feel he needs to protect her? To find out these answers, you must read this book. I thought this story was well written. Ms. Hubalek developed strong, complicated characters. As she tells this romantic tale, the past lives of the two protagonists are revealed. In her plot line, Ms. Hubalek, generates tension and suspense as she reveals the underlying motivation for Ms. Donovan’s flight to Kansas. Additionally, I appreciated how Ms. Hubalek interjected humor into her plot line, thereby, endearing these two characters to the reader.

    This is my first read by Linda K. Hubalek and I was immediately caught up in the desperate plight of Millie and her nephew Tate. They arrive in a small Kansas town for sanctuary with Millie's promised groom, only to be told by his friend that her groom has recently died. The friend, Adam, is the town Marshal; he reluctantly takes on responsibility for the two, at his mother and sisters' insistence. From then on there is never a dull moment for any of the unforgettable characters that populate this exciting, sometimes funny, heartwarming story. This is book 2 of a series, but there is no cliffhanger, so it can be read as a standalone. I look forward to reading the rest of the series, starting with book one, Rania Ropes a Rancher.

The first meeting between Millie and Adam is a disaster, but with the help of Adam’s mother Cate they work together to protect the love that grows between them. Ms. Hubalek has created likable characters that seamlessly move from one novel to the next in this fast-paced romantic tale.

    Inspiring and heart wrenching storyI enjoyed the inspiration that women, family & friends should stand together. I've always put family first as the characters do in this book. I grew up not far from where the setting of this book takes place which puts it in a special place in my heart. Book gives meaning to family values & shows strength of small town living. The book keeps your attention where you don't want to put the book down until you figure out what's coming next.

    This book took me by surprise. I expected a tongue in cheek, sappy romance with no real substance. What Hubalek delivered is so much more. Characters that act and speak like real people. A small town atmosphere that can only be written by someone that has lived it. Although I prefer an edgier cut to my romance, I can't find any serious fault with this story. A nice quick read.

    A good enough book. A pleasant read. I did appreciate that there were no sex scenes. But I am extremely tired of authors who use the epilogue to pimp their next book! It's meant to tie up loose ends of the current book, or provide additional conclusion to the current book.
