A SEAL's Oath by Cora Seton

Hah That is some idea: Mix regency with sustainabilty. I love the plot.
To put SEAL in the title seems a sort of marketing twist, because those guys could have been anything. So,who seeks a military novel might be disapponted.
But I was greatly entertained.
First book in a series.

Series; SEALs of Chance Creek, Book 1

Wanted: one wife, one baby. Love not required.
Navy SEAL Boone Rudman has six months to find a wife and get her pregnant or he’ll lose his chance to win 1500 acres of prime Montana ranch land. So when he discovers Riley Eaton living on his new ranch, all grown up from the tomboy she used to be, he decides she’ll do for his bride—whether or not she’s got other plans.
Riley Eaton quit her job, sold her car and moved to Chance Creek with her friends to pursue the dreams she’d put on hold for far too long. She has no idea her uncle sold the ranch out from under her—and has no plans to marry any time soon—but when Boone shows up, sexy as hell after fifteen years in the service, she begins to wonder if her priorities are all wrong.
When duty turns to desire, Boone launches a campaign to win Riley’s heart. But is it too little, too late? Or can he convince Riley to forget the past and create a future worth fighting for?

Mail Order Secret: by Bess Hart

 Short story.
The crime plot is solid - and quite believable. The story started with some unusual twist, nicely done.
I most appreciate that the author wrote a "real" crime story and did not throw sex scenes in between. Nonetheless there is a love story in the background, decent and well worthy of grown-ups..



What is this book about?
 Katherine is speeding westbound in a monstrous, black steam train. She doesn’t believe in love and she never wants to have children. But, what she does believe in are second chances and new beginnings. So when she boards the train and leaves her past behind in Boston, she's relieved. Becoming a mail order bride wasn’t what she had planned. But now, a husband is waiting for her in Idaho, and by all accounts, he seems like a kind and honorable man—perfect for a mail order marriage of convenience. Luke is a born and bred pioneer. Despite his devastating smile and his ability to charm women, he decides to take a mail order bride from across the country. What she doesn’t know is that he, too, is hiding something he’s not sure she’ll accept. For both of them, conquering the West seems far easier than conquering love.
