This book did not fail me in that area and as usual I enjoyed the stories also. There were at least a couple that took me a 'while' (as long as a while can be in a short story, lol) to get into but the stories ended up being very good. Anyone who enjoys historical fiction, historical christian fiction or mail-order bride books should find that they will like this book.

The Preacher's Bride Collection is a collection of six romance novellas by six different authors. There are six men who have dedicated their lives to preaching God's Word and all are in need of wives. Each story has a faith-based theme with a pastor in need of a wife, bringing unique circumstance from a different locations. Of course, their romances don't always go as planned or as they had envisioned. Six old-fashioned romances built on faith and love:
-Remember Me by Kimberley Comeaux
A cute novella with a young man, North, who loses his memory in an accident. He believes he is a Scottish pastor, so everyone calls him Pastor. A farmer's young daughter, Helen, feels she is not good enough for North but hopes that he will fall in love with her. I enjoyed the interaction between North and Helen and the interesting struggles they both had. Noah, wanting to know who he really is but is a little fearful of what he will learn. Helen, so wanting Noah to fall in love with her but also fearful of what will happen once-if-Noah's memory returns.
-Shirley, Goodness, and Mercy by Kristy Dykes
Shirley is a young lady who feels she has not really known much beyond the little town and church where she lives and longs for adventure. The new Parson, Forrest, just might fill that adventure. I enjoyed the way Shirley tried to bring about the adventure she so longed for and the way Forrest tried to not fall in love with her. It is interesting how Shirley's parents came up with her name.
-Miss Bliss and the Bear by Darlene Franklin
Miss Ann Bliss loves to knit gloves and scarves for the men at the fort. She meets the Bear Chaplain Jeremiah at the fort. He certainly sounds like a bear when he barks orders at everyone. However, Jeremiah really has a soft heart as Ann soon discovers. But will she be able to tame the bear? I really enjoyed this novella, the humor and surprises in the story making it a favorite of the six novellas in this book.
-A Bride for the Preacher by Sally Laity
Emma's one dream is to doctor the needy and to that end travels to the new territory out west. She is not looking for a husband, but she just might change her mind after meeting and nursing preacher Jesse's fever. I enjoyed how Emma kept at her dream despite obstacles. A fun story.
-Renegade Husband by DiAnn Mills
Audra is assured she will find adventure as she moves to the Colorado frontier to marry the local pastor. But she never dreamed of just how much adventure until the stagecoach she is traveling on is robbed. It appears her intended husband just may be one of the robbers! This story captures you from the first to last page. I really enjoyed Audra and her courage in an unsettling situation, and what her intended husband went through to convince her he truly is trustworthy and honest.
A fun story.
-Silence of the Sage by Colleen L. Reece
Reverend Gideon Scott has marriedin name only. He leaves his family and church behind to uncover the truth that will clear his name. This story caught me from the first page. I really enjoyed the way the characters faced their challenges.
