Kathleen Y'Barbo


RITA and Carol award nominee Kathleen Y’Barbo is the best-selling, award-winning author of more than forty novels, novellas, and young adult books. In all, more than one million copies of her books are currently in print in the US and abroad, and her books have been translated into Dutch, German, and Spanish, to name a few.

Kathleen is a member of American Christian Fiction Writers and Romance Writers of America. She holds a BBA from Texas A&M University’s Mays Business School and a certification in Paralegal Studies, and is a former member of the Texas Bar Association’s Paralegal Division.

A tenth-generation Texan, Kathleen Y’Barbo has four children of her own as well as seven bonus kids she gladly inherited when she married her own hero in combat boots. Kathleen is proud to be a military wife, even if it did mean giving up her Texas drivers license.


May 1887--Flora Brimm is determined the fifth time is the charm. Back home she has a reputation as "Fatal Flora," a woman whose previous four fianc├ęs died in untimely accidents. Flora is desperate to marry, because producing an heir is the only way she can keep her family's estate. She's confident this visit to Eureka Springs with her grandmother will help her land a husband.

Pinkerton detective Lucas McMinn is hot on the trail of Will Tucker, the thief who broke his sister's heart. When he discovers the slippery fellow with Flora, he thinks they are in on the devious plot together. Will Flora be able to convince Lucas of her innocence? Will Lucas catch the elusive Mr. Tucker?

And, more importantly, will Lucas survive if he pursues Flora's heart?


Desperation can make even the most level-headed person do reckless things. Flora Brimm, unlucky in love, must produce an heir or she cannot lay claim to her family's estate. Unfortunately her reputation precedes her and repels most gentlemen from wanting to keep company with her let alone marry her. A chance meeting with Will Tucker changes things and she and Will make "arrangements" to wed. However, Will Tucker may not be all he seems to be and Detective Lucas McMinn is hot on his trail, but what an adventure awaits him in his pursuit. Hold on to your seats and your funny bone as this entertaining story takes you for a ride. Kathleen Y'Barbo is a great storyteller and fans of humor and romance will not want to let this book pass them by.
