Married by Mistake
by Laura V. Hilton
Included in
The Second Chance Brides Collection


2 blog posts today! Be sure to check both.


Laura V. Hilton is an award-winning, sought-after
Laura V. Hilton
author with almost twenty published Amish, contemporary, and historical romances. When she’s not writing, she reviews books for her blogs, and writes devotionals for blog posts for "Seriously Write" and "Putting on the New."


Laura and her pastor-husband have five children and a hyper dog named Skye. They currently live in Arkansas. One son is in the U.S. Coast Guard. She is a pastor’s wife, and homeschools her two youngest children. 

When she’s not writing, Laura enjoys reading, and visiting lighthouses and waterfalls. Her favorite season is winter, her favorite holiday is Christmas.


Welcome, Laura. What is your favorite dessert?
Cheesecake. Love cheesecake. 

How do people react when they find out you write?    
1. They tell me they always wanted to write and talk about what they would write if they write. 2. They ask me if it’s children’s books. Or 3. They give me a pitying look like I’m really lying and there is no way I’m a published author unless I self-published.

What’s your favorite place you have visited?  
The Upper Peninsula of Michigan, I loved the waterfalls, the great lakes, the lighthouses, the history (forts), the pines, the Coast Guard and so much more. 

Lighting Round:
Vacation: Beach or Mountains? Beach. I live in the mountains. 
Y’all or You Guys? Y’all
Biscuits or Dinner Roll?  biscuits
Spring, summer, winter, or fall? Winter
Laptop or Desktop?  laptop
Mug or teacup? Both.  I LOVE teacups, but I collect them. I drink from mugs. 


Please tell us a little about your novella, Married by Mistake (included in The Second Chance Brides Collection). 
The Second Chance Brides Collection:

Hope for Happy Endings Is Renewed in Nine Historical Romances

Meet nine women from history spanning from 1776 to 1944 who feel the sting of having lost out on love. Can their hope for experiencing romance again be renewed?

Married by Mistake by Laura V. Hilton - Mackinac Island, 1902:

When a plan to pose for advertising goes awry, Thomas Hale and Bessie O’Hara find themselves legally married. Now Bessie and Thomas must decide whether to continue the charade or walk away. Either choice could ruin them if the truth gets out.

  11. When my husband and I married one of our gifts was a crystal bell. Well, 41 years later, I still collect bells and have them from all over the States and the world. Only a few are ones that I bought, the rest were given to me by friends and family.

I found a small basket that had a flag painted on it in muted colors. Americana I guess. Also sewing related items like old wooden spools and fabric with sewing theme.
