Summary

A clean, sweet historical romance set in 1873. 
Bostonian Cora Elison arrives unannounced at her family’s ranch in Kansas, after her fiancé changed her status from bride to bridesmaid—at her own wedding. But after a few months, Cora thanks her lucky stars that he did because she has found a set of loyal friends, a way of life she relishes, and a cowboy she has become to love. 
Dagmar Hamner and his family emigrated from Sweden to work on a Texas ranch, working cattle and herding them north over the Chisholm Trail. After his family decides to settle permanently in Kansas in 1873, he is hired for the foreman’s job at the six thousand acre Bar E Ranch. 
All goes well for the Swedish cowboy until the absentee owner’s daughter arrives, wanting to learn how to become a rancher. Time makes them best friends, until a telegram arrives saying Cora’s parents are bringing an unknown groom to Kansas for her, insisting she be married when they arrive. 
Cora asks Dagmar to marry her, but he balks at her proposal. Between confusion and interference, will Cora be able to capture her cowboy in time to haul him to the altar?

    Haley Cutler is the consummate trophy wife. Perhaps was is the more accurate term. Haley married Prince Charming when she was only twenty—back in the day when highlights came from an afternoon at the beach, not three hours in the salon. 
    Unfortunately, after seven years as Jay Cutler's wife, a role that provided significance and what she thought was love, Jay walks out, and Haley finds herself with few life skills that translate to the real world, not to mention a sense of amnesia about who she used to be. But before Haley can find her way, she must meet with Jay's lawyer, the strikingly handsome Hamilton Lowe. Although she can't stand his self-righteous contempt for her divorce, she takes his suggestion to attend a group at his church called "The Trophy Wives Club," a Bible study composed of women who have been dealt a raw deal. Haley's never been into the whole Jesus thing but could really use some friends to walk her through this phase (how do you apply for a credit card anyway?). 
    As Haley begins to realize that she really can stand on her own two feet, she also learns that sometimes in losing we find the real reward . . .

    Oluwo Philip Neimark, author of The Way of The Orisa, The Sacred Ifa Oracle and the Energy Matrix of Ifa, has chosen a path less traveled. Initiated into Santeria/Lukumi and subsequently finding the "root" religion of Ifa into which he was also initiated, he has constantly pushed the bubble to keep Ifa/Orisha relevant.Stripping away the Western incursions on this Eastern philosophy, he has forced initiates to examine their world view not as something fixed and immobile, but as something that takes its ancient truths and weaves them into the social, political,environmental situations of today's world. The result is a dynamic LIVING philosophy whose Truths have absolute relevance and whose applications have no end.
