Wanted-A Bride

Wanted-A Bride is #125 in the Pink Collection and was published in February 2015. It's the story of Lord Templeton, who is being sent to calm a potential international problem in Siam. He takes Amina, the secretary's niece, as his pretend wife and they find many adventures on their travels.

The cover looks like a reprint of a US publication, but I don't think I have a copy. If you find one on another BC book, let me know.

A Train to Love

A Train to Love is #124 in the Pink Collection and was published in January 2015. This is the story of Lola Fenton and how she finds a position and love after the death of her parents in 1880's Britain.

This cover looks new for this title. I like that it shows our hero and heroine on a train and both dressed for dinner.  The heroine's green gown is stunning and it's evident that they are in love! Since most pictures have been reused covers with the Pink Collection books, it's really nice to see new art work. I hope you enjoy this!
