Parker J. Cole, circa February 2018

Fans of my work know I write contemporary sweet and edgy Christian romances with a multicultural bent. I never thought I would venture down a different path but one thing you can be sure of: change is the one constant of life.

Earlier this year, I joined a group of nine authors and together, we created the town Silverpines, Oregon in the year 1899. If you love mail-order bride books, then you’re going to love Silverpines.

Silverpines has been devastated by natural disasters. Beloved husbands, sons, and brothers are gone. The women of Silverpines MUST band together in order to survive. But instead of the brides leaving hearth and home, the women of Silverpines send off for a group of mail-order grooms!

Who are the men who answer the call of the women’s plight? Will they be what the women need to build up the town up again? Find out today with the first story of Silverpines called Mail Order Marshal by George McVey, a great author and friend, Mail Order Marshal is also a Brides of Beckham crossover story and releases today!

My own Silverpines novel–the first time I’ve ever written a historical romnce–will be out later on this year. The closer it gets, I’ll let you know.

Until next time, carpe diem and download the first book of Silverpines today!

Betsy Pike’s world comes crashing down when her fiancé, Silverpines’ Town Marshal, is gunned down on the eve of their wedding. To add insult to injury, his killer takes over every part of Ike’s life, the job of marshal, his house, and he even wants Betsy. What’s a girl to do? The men of the town won’t stand up to the outlaw and self-appointed marshal. When he gives her two months to grieve, Betsy comes up with a desperate plan: contact Elizabeth Tandy and order up a husband who has experience as a lawman.

Alexzander Sewell feels like he’s in the wrong place in Beckham, Massachusetts. Born and raised on Ryder Mountain in Harlan, Kentucky, he longs for the mountains of his youth. When his mother moved the whole family to remarry, he became stuck in the town of Beckham. Now his friends, the Tandy’s, offer him a chance to go west, all the way to the Rocky Mountains. The only catch: he must marry a woman in desperate need of a husband and a lawman. Can he find a way to be what Betsy needs and spend time in the mountains?

Can Betsy let go of her love for Ike and learn to love her mail order husband? Can Alexzander compromise on his dream of disappearing into the mountains to be the man his wife needs? Can they bring the killer to justice or will a series of natural disasters not only spell the end of Silverpines but of their marriage, too? What’s a woman to do when she orders up a Mail Order Marshal?

Leon Reckley is extremely satisfied to find the man who ripped his mother off suffering from an unknown disease that leaves him paralyzed and in need of rehabilitation therapeutic services. He’s even happier when he is given the opportunity to be the therapist that makes him fit enough to return to prison to finish his sentence. No one will work harder to make sure Dev Kapoor serves every minute of his prison sentence.

Gargi never dreamed the man who has utter contempt for her brother would be the man she slowly begins to trust.

Or when Leon’s job is over, will it simply be time to say goodbye?
