Find out in Second Chance Brides, book two in the Texas Boardinghouse Brides series by Vickie McDonough. The historical novel is scheduled for release in September 2010.

In the novel, Shannon O’Neil and Leah Bennett are stranded in Lookout, Texas, after a mail-order bride debacle. The Corbett brothers try to atone for the mess they made when they ordered their cousin three mail-order brides by hosting Saturday socials for the town’s eligible singles. But in his stubbornness, will Mark Corbett let Shannon become the wife of a local rancher? Will Leah pass up true love with Dan Howard just when he becomes father to his brother’s five children? The Lookout citizens are in for another wild ride before wedding bells toll in town again.
