Perfect for the Preacher by Megan Besing
Fresh from seminary, Amos Lowry believes marriage will prove to his skeptical congregation that he’s mature. If only his mail-order bride wasn’t an ex-saloon girl, or worse, pregnant.
Collection also includes novellas from Noelle Marchand, Donna Schlachter, Sherri Shackelford, Michelle Shocklee, Ann Shorey, Liz Tolsma, Jennifer Uhlarik, and Kathleen Y’Barbo.

Sophie touched the back of her hair. Her braids remained obedient. “Morning.”
Dusty brushed against her skirt and then sat in between them like a guard dog. Except his tail swooshed, and he panted happily. He’d have to work on his threatening demeanor.
“I was wondering…since…I mean…” Amos bent over and scratched Dusty behind his ears. “You look nice today.”
Was he talking to the dog or her?
“Not that you didn’t look nice yesterday. Because you did. Look nice that is. Both yesterday. And today.” He rocked on the balls of his feet and stole a glance at her.
Was it good that her fiancé was nervous around her? She pressed a hand to a flutter in her stomach. Apparently, the feelings were mutual.
On the road, the horse snorted, and the loaded wagon jilted forward a bit. Glass jars clanked together. Amos looked ready to run and grab ahold of the reins, whether from the movement of the horse, or from talking with her, she wasn’t sure.
“Would you like to join me on the milk deliveries?” Amos still eyed the wagon, as if asking it the question. It would be nice if he’d peek at her again. Eyes often told the truth of the heart before a person was brave enough to speak it.
