Bride of the High Country (Runaway Brides) (Paperback)
Kaki Warner's newest novel in the series about unlikely brides who make their way west--and find love where they least expect it... Margaret Hamilton escaped the Irish slums of Five Points as the ward of a wealthy Manhattan widow, but only marriage can make her future secure. Railroad mogul Doyle Kerrigan needs a well-connected wife. It seems a perfect match...until a shocking revelation sends her fleeing from the wedding reception. Desperate to make a fresh start, Margaret takes on a new identity and heads West, finally stopping in Heartbreak Creek, Colorado, a dying mining town of little interest to anyone. Here, she finds new purpose, beloved friends to replace the family she's lost, and a home at last. But two men from Margaret's past are on her trail. One is seeking vengeance, the other truth. When they both arrive in Heartbreak Creek, she must choose between the town she has come to love, and the man who might finally capture her heart....

Praise for Bride of the High Country and Kaki Warner:
~Chosen by Library Journal as one of the Best Books of 2012~
“A smart, resourceful heroine who survives at all costs, a strong, honorable hero who refuses to let her go, and a surfeit of diverse, unforgettable characters combine in a gripping, multilayered story that pulls few punches as it draws readers into the romance and often unvarnished reality of life in 19th-century America.” –Library Journal
