My June release Undercover Bride is a mail-order bride story with a twist. Some of the advertisements that appeared in the mail order bride catalogs were a hoot and it took a clever man to know how to decipher them. Here’s a key that might have helped :
* Eager to learn—can’t cook; can’t sew; can’t clean
* Accomplished—can ride, shoot and spit like a man
* Modest dowry—poor as a church mouse
*Loving nature—keep her away from the ranch hands
*Traditionally built—you may wish to reinforce the floors
*Matrimonially inclined—working on husband number three
*Maternal—has six children and one on the way
*Possesses natural beauty—don’t be fooled by the false hair, cosmetic paints or bolstered bosom
*Industrious—give her a dollar and she’ll figure out how to spend ten
*Young looking—doesn’t look a day over sixty.
*And they lived happily ever after—AND THEY LIVED HAPPILY EVER AFTER.
