Brant Samson has fallen on hard times. His beloved wife died a year earlier of lung fever and now he’s desperate to find a mother for his three children. Ten year old Jenny does her best to care for two year old Ty, and fourteen year old Luke works the ranch with his father, losing himself in dime novels to ease the pain of his mother’s death. Brant’s options are limited since eligible women seldom pass through Two Rivers, much less settle in the small Texas town. In desperation, he places a classified advertisement for a mail order bride.

Abigail Mary Vaughn always dreamed of having her own family, but caring for her elderly parents, as well as working as a teacher to help with finances, ended that dream. Her parents are now dead and she’s faced with the reality of her lonely existence. After reading Mr. Samson’s advertisement in the Philadelphia Inquirer, she garners enough courage to respond. Since she is considered an old maid at the age of thirty-eight, she’ll more than likely spend the rest of her life wondering “what if” unless she does something unconventional.


Luke Samson is a successful writer at the youthful age of twenty-five. His life is going along as planned and he has no desire to marry for at least a few years. While dining in a Dallas restaurant, he overhears an intriguing conversation and receives his first look at Angel St. Clair, a woman who will forever change his carefully laid plans. Although she has been blessed with angelic beauty, her heart is shattered. Can Luke restore this broken woman?

Angel St. Clair’s sole desire is to hire a suitable husband to escort her safely to the bakery she has purchased in San Francisco. To that end, she places a classified advertisement for a mail order husband. Her life savings has gone into acquiring her business and she hopes to find, if not happiness, at least contentment after suffering a life of tragedy and heartache.


Jenny Samson, sister of Luke (book two) and daughter of Brant (book one), is a gifted artist. She has moved from her country home in Texas to attend Jake Ryder’s Academy of Art in New York. She has long dreamed of meeting Mr. Ryder, the great artist known as the Painter of Emotions, but when she does, his criticism of her paintings devastates her.

Jake Ryder lost his right arm in a carriage accident. It was the final sorrow in a life of sorrow. Now he lives a lonely existence, rarely leaving his estate outside of New York City. The sweet paintings of Jenny Samson incense the artist in him because life is not sweet, nor kind, nor lovely, and he lashes out at the plain country girl during a gallery exhibition of her works. Soon, however, he will discover there is more to Jenny that he anticipated.

Love scenes are sensual.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

Verna Clay’s stories are very enjoyable to read and thought provoking. I have read all three of the Unconventional Series and enjoyed them all. I definitely recommend books written by this author.


This trilogy was amazing. It was so much fun watching this family grow and mature. Felt like you were there and cheering them on. Verna Clay is an excellent author. I loved her book and will be reading more by her in the future.


Verna Clay did a fantastic job of writing several mail order bride stories of the west. Stories one can enjoy.


This series has everything. You will laugh, cry, be angry, confused, and content. The stories flow into each other beautifully. I highly recommend this series.


I laughed and fell in love again with the beauty and hardships of the western life. The stories were emotional, heartwarming and uplifting. Having finished the series I have ordered more of Verna Clay’s books and am hoping she considers continuing the Unconventional Series.

About The Author

My perfect day- Laptop, WiFi availability, Java Mocha, characters demanding their stories be told, a plot that comes together, and hours to live in an alternate reality. Afterward, I return home to wash dishes and vacuum.

Seriously, I have always loved reading, and now I love writing. As a preteen, I devoured Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys Mysteries. When I reached my teen years, the romance genre became my favorite and that has never changed. A few years ago, I decided to try my hand at writing and I’ve been doing so with a passion ever since. I have written around twenty novels and novellas in the genres of contemporary western romance, historical western romance, and fantasy romance. Because I hate saying goodbye to characters who have lived with me for months, I usually create a series so they can be revisited from book to book. One of my latest writing endeavors has been a Young Adult novella titled, “Fragile Hearts.” I am using the pen name of Colleen Clay for YA novels.

Thank you for considering today’s Book Of The Day – Verna Clay and ENT appreciate it.
