He may have a high price on his head, but all outlaw Jack Bowdre ever desired was a second chance. Now he’s been arrested and on his way to jail, completely unaware that his unexpected —and unexpectedly beautiful— traveling companion is none other than Nora Kane…his mail order bride.
It’s too bad Nora doesn’t know Jack is her groom-to-be. All she sees is a scoundrel. But when their stagecoach crashes, they’re suddenly handcuffed together and running for their lives with nothing but the clothes on their backs. A posse behind and unforgiving terrain ahead, how long can they survive? Hounded by desperate men bent on stopping them by any means necessary, Nora and Jack find the love they both desperately want. But the question remains: will they have a chance to claim it?

Just when I thought I had Linda Broday pegged, she goes and reveals another wonderful facet of her amazing talent as a writer. While the first book in this series (The Outlaw’s Mail Order Bride) had me almost in despair for Clay and Tally’s chances in making it through their challenges–spoiler alert: they did–Saving the Mail Order Bride assured me of Jack and Nora’s happy-ever-after right from the start of their action-packed escape adventure. That’s because Ms. Broday infused this book with light humor and boundless optimism rather than angst and incessant suffering.
I loved that Jack and Nora’s objective changed while on the run. Instead of getting away from enemies, it had become more about reaching a specific destination: Hope’s Crossing. Because in that place was community, support, and love.
I adore that during their journey, they managed to acquire an entire family. A family that’s formed from tragedy and abuse with a promise of a better future for the children.
I enjoyed how Jack and Nora always worked together to escape, evade, provide for one another, face their adversaries, and plan a course of action. I really appreciate how strongly the characters were drawn with admirable qualities and all-too-human weaknesses. Despite the title, it wasn’t only Jack who was saving the mail order bride, it was also Nora saving the outlaw.
At the beginning of the book, Linda Broday wrote a letter saying she hopes the readers are entertained by this story and that we’re left wanting to know more about the characters from Hope’s Crossing.
Well, this reader is happily entertained and is looking forward to reading more about these outlaws and the community they’re building from nothing. Bring on Ridge’s story please, Linda. I can’t wait for more.
PRAISE FOR SAVING THE MAIL ORDER BRIDE:
“Broday continues her Outlaw Mail Order Brides historical Western romance series with an interesting premise…” — Kirkus
“The adventure and dangers kept the pages turning – delivering quite a few surprises and heart-pounding moments. And generously balanced in were moments of peace and beauty.” — Sunshine Lake Reviews
“I loved every deep ravine-gun blazing-twist of this book.”
— Glenda (Goodreads reviewer)
“Linda Broday has spun another great adventure that is full of surprises, has you rooting for the outlaws and people of Hope’s Crossing, and wanting some ‘lawmen,’ ‘businessmen,’ and other ‘questionable men’ to find their deaths. It’ll make you question who should be called an outlaw in this period of time.”
— Stephanie (Goodreads reviewer)
I’m a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of over twenty historical western romance novels and short stories. I reside in the Texas Panhandle on land the American Indian and Comancheros once roamed, and at times if the breeze is just right, I can hear their voices whispering in the wind. Texas’ rich history is one reason I set all my stories here where cowboys are still caretakers of the land. I’m inspired every day by their immense dedication and love for the wide-open spaces.
When I’m not writing, I collect old coins and I’ve also been accused (quite unfairly I might add) of making a nuisance of myself at museums, libraries, and historical places. I’m also a movie buff and love sitting in a dark theater, watching the magic unfold on the screen. As long as I’m confessing…chocolate is my best friend. It just soothes my soul.

Thank you. Yes, they must!
Oh my goodness, Maida! Thank you for this review. I’m so glad that you loved Jack and Nora and that the book brought a bit of happiness to you. I can’t tell you how reviews like this uplift and push me forward. But maybe you know because you’re a writer yourself. Reviews are very special and provide a score card of sorts to let you know how you’re doing. Book 1 of this series was too dark so I wanted to lighten it up a bit although humor is very difficult for me to write. I was pleased with how this one turned out. Jack and Nora were so funny together. She didn’t let him get by with anything. And she frustrated Jack to no end. Sawyer and Willow added another level of depth I think.
Oh, and I adore the pretty images you made! Wow! And so many! Thank you, thank you!!

It didn’t show. I read this during my walk (that’s how I got all those outdoor shots) and chuckled at many parts of it (the fishing :-D). People looked at me like I’m insane. 🙂
Oh wow, Maida! Thank you, thank you for this review and for liking Jack and Nora. They were such fun characters to write. I loved how Nora wouldn’t let Jack get by with anything. She frustrated him to no end. I had to stop and giggle quite often while I was writing this. This book probably has more humor than any I’ve ever written. Humor is difficult for me to pull off whereas I the dark stuff is easy. Very odd, but that’s me. And I think Sawyer and Willow both added an extra level of depth that this story wouldn’t have had otherwise. Such sweet kids.
Also, I adore the graphics you made! They’re beautiful. That was so sweet.
