ISBN: 9781451698244


Her Boston Brahmin family exiled Lily Highfill to Denver.  Bored though she appears on the brink of an engagement to an affluent gentleman, Lily joins her grandfather’s fossil dig on the Colorado Badlands before returning to her God-given rightful place in Massachusetts high society as an engaged heiress.


Journalist Mason Donnelly has hit hard times recently.  He comes to the Badlands seeking a story to elevate him back to the top.  Instead the reporter meets and is attracted to the excavation leader’s granddaughter; in turn the heiress is falling in love with the writer as they team up; him helping her obtain that needed betrothal and her assisting him on solving a dangerous mystery that soon leaves him with an ethical dilemma.


This is an enjoyable Americana romance starring two seemingly opposites falling in love in a fabulous locale as readers wonder whether either the journalist or the heiress will admit their love to themselves and the other.  Fast-paced, Badlands Bride is an engaging historical.
