ABOUT THE BOOK
Title: The Telegraph Proposal
Series: Montana Brides #3
Authors: Becca Whitham & Gina Welborn
Genre: Western Romance
Release Date: October 29, 2019
In the rough and rugged Montana Territory, the journey to true love is filled with unexpected twists–and sweet rewards–for daring frontier women who faithfully believe every heart has a home . . .
With the help of the Archer Matrimonial Company, Yancey Palmer has finally put Hale Adams, the man she’s loved for ten years–sometimes not wisely or well–behind her. Yancey is so sure of her love for the man the agency matched her with, she readily promises a friend that she’ll help Hale with his mayoral campaign without chasing him.
Hale has also engaged the services of the matrimonial agency. He’s so pleased with one lady, he requests that she join him in Helena to commence a sixty-day courtship. But instead, the Archer ladies arrive in town to reveal the true identities of both Hale’s and Yancey’s matches: each other. Can they look past their misunderstandings and hurt to see that they are still a perfect match?
Hale attempted to keep his exasperation at bay. But this woman was pushing his limits of gentlemanly behavior. “I’m still waiting to hear how far outside normal agency practice you went with regards to Miss York.”
Miss Archer shot a look at her mother, who was now the one looking triumphant. “It’s nothing bad.”
“You’ve already assured me on that point, Miss Archer.” And he was even less inclined to believe her now than the first time.
“It goes back to your rejection of the first nine candidates we sent you.”
“They weren’t compatible.” Which was rather obvious.
“Although they were exactly what you asked for.” She raised her head, a challenge in her brown eyes. “So instead of giving you the woman you askedfor, I sent you the woman you needed.”
He narrowed his eyes, trying once again to picture the qualifications he’d listed eight months ago on his application. But—honestly—did it even matter? Portia was who he wanted. However, the lawyer in him wasn’t about to say as much. “Are you saying she came to your agency in an unusual way?”
Miss Archer shook her head, the dark red feather tucked into the ribbon of her hat waving from side to side. “Miss York filled out an application and was vetted just as you were, Mr. Adams. I only changed her name and some of her specifics so you wouldn’t guess her identity.”
He heard the words and understood their meaning, but he couldn’t quite comprehend what she was implying. Unless… “Are you saying you read her letters to me?”
This time the feather (in her hat) waved up and down.
He crossed his arms over his chest as though they could shield him from feeling undressed. And she thought this was nothing bad? He’d like to hear precisely what she thought qualified for that.
Then again, he really didn’t.
She was talking again. He shoved the arguments and accusations shouting inside his head to one side in order to hear her. “…knew she was the perfect match for you, but in case you rejected her, as you had the others, I didn’t want there to be any awkwardness between you.”
He frowned. “Are you saying I know Miss York?”
Another nod, this one less vigorous so the feather barely waved.
He squinted, trying to picture the women he’d met in Denver. “Who is she?”
Miss Archer shot another glance at her mother, took a shallow breath, and looked him in the eye. “Yancey Palmer.”
