I couldn’t resist. Today’s post was full, it didn’t need anything more and then an irresistible collection showed up. It doesn’t look like most of the historical books we see and that really appeals to me. So here we are.
Romancing the Weavers Book Collection One: A Collection of Sweet Historical Romance
Everyone loves the Weavers!
Enjoy this collection of Weaver stories from Kit Morgan. Lucia, Arturo and Leonardo are Kit’s first contributions to her series Romancing the Weavers. A multi-author series written with Ray Anselmo. In this Book Collection you will find:
Lucia Cucinotta lived a sheltered life compared to most. She came to America from Italy and lived in New York City for a time, but the bulk of her years were spent on the Weaver farm, a full day’s wagon ride from the nearest town. If she was lucky, she got to Nowhere three or four times a year. Imagine her surprise when she visits Clear Creek, Oregon, and discovers there’s more to life than the family farm! A lot more.
Max Cooke fell head over heels with Lucy when he and his family spent one magical Christmas on the Weaver farm. But that was over two and a half years ago, and even though he and Lucy wrote to each other, they weren’t the same people now. It was only logical they’d have to get to know each other again. Problem was, they had only a little over a week to get reacquainted. Worse, Lucy was drawing the eye of every young gentleman in town! Downright disaster was the fact she was looking back! She’d never been around so many gentlemen her age before. What was Max to do?
Rayne O’Sullivan was no stranger to rejection and abandonment. She’d lost her mother during childbirth, her father to sickness when she was young. Then she lost her grandfather. She’d been living with her great uncle ever since, and he couldn’t wait for the day when he could be rid of her. Now here she was, a mail-order bride in a nothing of a town about to be married to a complete stranger. How much more can she endure?
Arturo Cucinotta just wanted someone to love. Yes, he had a big, boistrous family, but he was ready for more. A lot more, and the only way to get it was to find himself a wife. Problem was, there weren’t any eligable young women in the area. That left him with only one choice. A mail-order bride. And though he wouldn’t be the first in the family to get one, he was still nervous. How could he marry a woman he’d never met? Worse, his bride was refusing his kindness more and more. What was he supposed to do about that? Didn’t she want to be married to him?
Leonardo Cucinotta has a problem. Two actually. Parthena and Savannah Cooke.
When Colin and Belle Cooke accompany Max (their nephew) and his wife Lucy on a visit to the Weaver Farm, they brought along more than Leo bargained for.
Everyone thought he’d set his cap for Savannah, Max’s sister. What better time to let the two young people spend some time together? But when Parthena sees Leo, the sparks fly and in more ways than one. Will a man break up a life-long friendship between the Savannah and her cousin Parthena? Will Leo have to choose between the two? Will anything ever be the same after this visit? Find out in this installment of Romancing the Weavers! Sweet, clean fun for everyone!
Wouldn’t you know it, the next in the series just showed up as an irresistible bargain too. It was written by another author. This should prove interesting
Romancing the Weavers: Romans in Love: Box Set – 3 Novels
In 1870, Antonio Cucinotta left Rome, Italy on the ship Gabriel, with his pregnant wife and seven children. His eighth child was born on the trip across the Atlantic. But in New York, his wife died, he tried to cover his grief with alcohol and gambling, and his oldest daughter Isabella, in a desperate move to save her siblings, went to Washington Territory as a mail-order bride to marry Calvin Weaver. Once she settled in, she brought all her brothers and sisters across the country to join her.
The Cucinotta children prospered in the Far Northwest. They grew strong, learned skills, and once they reached adulthood, they began looking for love. On the Weavers’ isolated farm, thirty miles from the nearest small town, husbands and wives could be hard to find. But the good Lord had a plan for each, and that plan included spouses that were perfect for them.
This box set includes three of their stories, with adventures ranging from the romantic to the ridiculous to the perilous:
- ALFONSO – Alfonso Cucinotta is sick of life on a farm with more family than he knows what to do with. Philadelphia Howe is headed for California with her baseball-manager father, the only family she has. When the Howes and their driver get lost and stumble on the Weaver farm, it sets the stage for romance, conflict and danger!
- MELANIA – After six years of correspondence, Melania Cucinotta is crazy about Clinton Cooke. Clinton Cooke, of the Clear Creek, Oregon Cookes, is crazy about Mel. But when Clinton leads a cattle drive to the Weaver farm and they finally get together, can they keep from going crazy?
- GABRIELLA – Gabby Cucinotta was perfectly happy living on the farm, unmarried and unworried. But fate had other plans for her. And when an unwanted suitor tries to force her hand, fate lands her in jail on a charge of murder!
I’m gong to quit while I am ahead. No more books today.
I’m liking the current read. Half way through.
