The Officer and the Bostoner (Historical Western Romance) (Fort Gibson Officers Series, Book 1), by Rose Gordon. (Still free?)

"Rose takes on a new genre with great success in her first western. The humor that makes all of Rose 's books great is just as evident in this book as it is in her regencies. You can't help but fall in love with both Allison and Wes as they struggle to deal with their views of each other and there growing feelings for each other." -- Amazon reviewer

Fort Gibson, Indian Territory 1845...

Allison Pierson is a well-to-do young lady traveling by stagecoach from her home in Boston to meet her intended in Santa Fe, but instead finds herself stranded in a military fort in the middle of Indian Territory when her stagecoach leaves without her.

Given the choice to either temporarily marry an officer until her intended can come rescue her or take her chances with the Indians, she marries the glib Captain Wes Tucker, who unbeknownst to her, grew up in a wealthy Charleston family and despises everything she represents.

But when it's time for her beau to reclaim her and for Allison and Wes to annul their marriage, will she want to go with him, and more importantly, will Wes let her?

A Dignified Exit, by John J Asher. (Still 0.99?)

"Asher's novel is a lyrically written portrait of the beauty and culture of Mexico, art, and most of all, the risks--and triumphs--of letting someone love you unconditionally. Asher's prose is elegant and evocative, but his characters are so real, and he weaves such welcome humor amid the pathos, that his writing offers real emotional impact without a trace of Nicholas Sparks schmaltz. A lovely, engaging read that feels like a trip through Mexico through the eyes of someone who knows it well--and loves it--and a touching exploration of what it means to let someone love you--for better or for worse." -- Amazon reviewer

Finalist for Best Literary Fiction — (eFestival of Words).

Monroe Colson, a successful children’s book illustrator living in small-town Texas, baffles family and friends when he unceremoniously announces he’s moving to Mexico, ostensibly to paint.

In Mexico, the true nature of his mysterious behavior not only comes to light, but takes an unexpected turn when he runs into a vibrant young American woman who has been abandoned, penniless, by her fiancé.

This emotionally powerful and often humorous story with its controversial subject matter is a poignant testament to love and the resilience of the human heart.
