Publisher's Summary

Pioneer Hearts is a heart-warming collection of Wild Western romances celebrating the courage of young Mail Order Brides and their trailblazer husbands. Also includes Beautiful Books by Emma Morgan.... 

Promise to Love

With her father’s plummeting business and health, 21-year-old Josephine Hayden is urged to ease her parents' burden and accept an invitation to join hands with an unknown Western man in Cowtown, Kansas. 

Her first sight of blue-eyed Clae McKinley is encouraging, but when she is presented with a contract outlining her responsibilities as a Mail Order wife, fears of a loveless marriage besiege her tender heart.  

Josie’s nervous efforts to live up to her side of the "bargain" take a surprising turn that exposes not only her own fears, but the true heart of the man she has been joined with. 

Promise of Blessing

When Harland McKinley sees the joy that mail order bride, Josie, brings to his twin brother's heart, he begins desperately looking for a way to earn the hand of his own long-time beau, Beth Drescher. But will his intended forgive him for stepping out with her rival, the fashionable daughter of the local banker? 

News of thieveries in Cowtown, ones that the stern new sheriff believes may be connected to the McKinleys in some way, further threatens to keep the young couple apart. 

Despite these challenges, will Harland and Beth finally declare their love for each other, and the Promise of Blessing come to full bloom? 

Promise Fulfilled 

Anna Hayden is devastated when the man she expected to marry is conveniently betrothed to another bride.  

Thinking she may be condemned to a lifetime of drudgery and boredom as a ladies maid, she willfully responds to an advert for a Mail Order Bride.  

A shock awaits Anna at the train station in Wichita. It is only the kindness of two strangers that avert disaster for the young city girl stranded in a dangerous Western town. 

In the uncertain days that follow, Anna discovers that God's grace is far bigger than all of our mistakes! 

Special additional books by Emma Morgan 

The Eighteen Year Old Orphan Rescued by the Heartbroken Farmer 

Recently released from the orphan’s home and with nowhere to go, Olivia Lester accepts a last-minute proposition to travel west as a mail-order bride. Judd Brockman has made it clear that he only needs a wife as a partner on the farm — not in love — and Olivia accepts his wishes. Judd is a kind man, so when Olivia find herself falling in love with him, she chooses silence over breaking her agreement. But when a woman from Judd’s past returns with a scandalous accusation, Olivia begins to wonder if maybe her life with Judd is not what she thought. 

A Mail Order Bride for the Cowboy's Troubled Twins 

With his beloved wife dead and his boys needing a mother’s touch, Billy Henderson reluctantly writes for a mail order bride. Although no one will ever replace his wife, Billy wants to do what’s best for his boys — the only family he has left. So when Beth Bennett agrees to travel West and be his bride, he is both grateful and anxious. 

Beth Bennett had just begun to recover from the death of her husband, when she learns the bank has come for her house. With nowhere for her and her young daughter to turn, she soon finds herself on her way to wed a stranger, chosen from the Matrimonial News. And while Billy Henderson seems like a kind man, his boys have been allowed to run wild, and they make life for Beth even more difficult than she expected. And Billy, it seems, has no desire to help.

As Beth struggles to build a life in Billy's home, she begins to wonder at her decision. It takes a near miss and patience for healing to finally open the hearts of this broken family, and let the light back in.

Sweet Historical Romance

Promise to Love
June 30, 2020

I didn’t care for the ending, so, since this is part of a series, I hope the story continues. I enjoyed the story though!
The narrator was wonderful! Her cadence was superb! A lot of emotion was conveyed just by pausing in the right places and speaking at the right speed! The NY pastor’s discussion was like a snippet from a movie! Perfectly timed and with the right inflection!

Promise of Blessings
June 30, 3020

This one didn’t end on as much of a cliff hanger! And yes, it did continue where book one abruptly stopped.
The narrator continues with her fabulous performance!

Promise Fulfilled
July 1, 2020


Sweet! The twin brothers have married in books one and two and now the first bride’s sister gets her turn at love! But only after a few (wo)man-made detours! I loved this ending!
The narrator continues with her fantastic presentation!

The Eighteen year old orphan rescued by the heartbroken Farmer by Emma Morgan
July 1, 2020

This story has a very odd title to me, but I enjoyed the story! I probably wouldn’t have bought it as a single book because of the title alone, but as part of the collection, I’m glad I listened to it. The narrator definitely showed the flatness of the groom in this book as he kept his heart closed off to his bride, and she also portrayed a genuine motherly figure as the preacher’s wife comforted the hurt girl! Well done!

A Mail Order Bride for the Cowboy’s Troubled Twins by Emma Morgan
July 1, 2020

Another very strange title to me. It’s a common thread that something bad or scary is the catalyst to show someone their true feelings! That’s definitely evident in this story! True live is finally admitted after a troubling circumstance! I enjoyed the book and will be looking at more from this author!
The narrator continues her excellent depiction with the antics of a couple of misbehaving boys as their torment their stepmother!

A very delightful collection!
5 stars!

I loved these!

The subject of mail order brides has always fascinated me so I really enjoyed these! I also live in Kansas so I enjoyed reading about cities and places that I've been. The characters were interesting and the narrator did a great job. Each story was shorter than I realized so I wasn't ready for them to end, but that was my only problem!

Way better than your average bundle

I fine with getting mail order bride book box sets They are never as good as buying single stories. That is not the case with pioneer hearts all the stories were great and even though I heard the latest story with the father and the twins that too is a pretty good story. Although I totally didn’t agree how the father didn’t reprimand his twins, but they straightened her out like always. This is great for the price and well worth the credit. Not to mention they have one of the best narrators reading the story.

I so enjoyed this series

I got this along with a few other (by other authors) audiobooks with a request to review them if I enjoyed them. Most of the books were rather disappointing. This collection was great! The stories were sweet, wholesome, and didn't make me blush. They were well-written as well as narrated. Each story was short, but they were so nice a perfect for a day I didn't feel good.
I recommend and will see about reading more by this author.

Delightful!

A wonderful series of short stories that tugged at my heart. Each story has a match that is unexpected but lovely. The narrator is one of my favorites!

Nice stories

The five books are interesting and pull the reader in. Since they are short stories, they don't go into great depth. The characters are well developed, but the story ended all too soon. However, the ending will leave the reader happy. The last two stories were my favorites, but all five are captivating. Each one of these books would have made a great full-length novel. But if you want a short story because of lack of time, I think you will enjoy this boxset.

Excellent Narration

Refreshing to read the courage some women had and became mail order brides. Their upbringing and Dreams was to have a home of their own and hopefully love. To go and find he is bethroth to someone else. Of to help the family with money problems, the list is many. These were delightful stories and what they found was not as smooth as they hoped Delightful and the audio added to these stories. Given audio for my voluntary review and my honest opinion

Sweet and comforting

There is something about western historical stories that just give me that home feeling. These five inspirational stories each have their own theme, yet give that heart warming emotion and let us live in the old west. Five women, each strong in their own way find the loves of their lives and their adventures are exciting! From delivering babies to ready made families, learning to farm and finding their way, each of the brides takes a path with faith and God. I loved each one as they came into their own and realized their new life is exactly what they want and what God intended. The relaxing stories are perfect for the soul.

Leonor A Woodworth brings each one to life. I love her voice, it is very soothing and easily tells a story. She finds the perfect voice for each, and with some crossover characters remains consistent between stories, which is a huge plus! She is an incredible storyteller and finds the essence of each book and brings it to life.
