Prairie Grooms is a series, so youll want to read these books in order to have the most fun. Kit Morgans books are fun, whimsical, sweet stories about the old west, its people, but especially about Clear Creek. One of the wackiest little towns in the old west! Also by Kit Morgan: The Prairie Bride Series, beginning with His Prairie Princess And: The Holiday Mail Order Bride Series, beginning with The Christmas Mail Order Bride Clear Creek was a quaint little place, one most men took one look at, and decided to settle. There was only one problem. There were no women. In fact, the town was so small, most women took one look at it, laughed, and whipped their horses into a frenzy to get as far from it as possible before their husbands could protest. This of course left a mighty big hole in the hearts of what men were left behind in the little community. Duncan Cooke, aka The Duke of Stantham, also had a problem. He had a huge estate in England to manage, one not far from London, and it came with all the problems one would expect with an estate in disarray. Including six unwed cousins, women no man would touch for fear of losing either a limb, or worse. Strange things happened to all who tried to court them, so they were left untouched, and very unwed. But Duncan realized that Clear Creek had exactly what he needed. Men! And so with the help of his brothers wife Sadie, he concocted a plan to send his cousins to Clear Creek as mail order brides! He just hoped the calamity that often followed them, didnt find its way across the sea as well ...

August (Prairie Grooms #1) Reviews
It was good, clean, lots of characters which I didn't find as confusing as others to keep straight. Seems like it's the second series that takes place in this setting, cause other characters' stories were referenced often. Story was kind of short and had a bit of a cliff-hanger ending because I assume the villain needs to work his way through each of the girls' stories before he can be defeated.
Not bad, but not a fan. It started out kind of rough, and while that wasn't a dealbreaker, I didn't enjoy the style of writing. Also: what kind of properly bred English ladies in 1860 don't know how to sew? That's like, one of the few things they're supposed (and allowed) to learn how to do, period. Not knowing how to cook, fine. But not knowing how to sew... It lost me at that point (and that was fairly early in). "Penelope sunk to the grass in a very unladylike manner. 'Cooking, laundry... you ...more
Too many characters
This story had too many individuals to keep straight. I found it hard at times to follow. It was a very simple story, but ended unresolved. There were cut parts, but it just was not that interesting.
I enjoyed reading August very much so that I got the next two books in the series. I like all of the characters in this book not just August and Penelope; but its the entire caste of characters that make this a wonderful read. And, I could definitely identify with both Calvin and Benjamin at the tail end of the book.
I liked how the book was organized and I like the pace of the book. At no time did the book feel rushed and it ended well. I have read some other books from this author and liked the ...more
Can't wait to read the others
This was the first mail order bride story I've ever read and I loved it. I loved that they were English and family. I loved the characters and I can't wait to read Constance's story.
Not interested enough to look for the rest of the series.
I was captured from the beginning. I've read the previous books so I was looking forward to this book, and it did not disappoint. It is exciting and a great love story that is very decent. I really dislike love stories that seem to think they need to get explicit. To me it is way more interesting love story than spelling out sex scenes. I highly recommend this book as well as the ones that come before it.
A gentle steady romance
This is a steady gentle romance with th e off but of excitement thrown in. It didn't really engage me in the story found it a little mixed up with Americans becoming lords, shipping females as mail order brides with a desperate upper crust tin but lurking in th ed bushes. Feel the author tried to squeeze to many senator's into one short story.
