Part one of Julie Garwood's trilogy, The Clayborne Brides, takes on a timeworn scenario: Travis Clayborne, a no-nonsense cowboy escorts a mail-order bride across Montana as a favor to his mother. The bride, Emily Finnegan, is a pedantic Boston screwball who initiates their relationship by shooting at him. She misses, and things go downhill from there. As the pair proceeds toward Emily's rendezvous with matrimony, the sparks--romantic and otherwise--fly. There are the inevitable bumps along the way, and few surprises, so don't expect any. One Pink Rose is like silk: smooth, lightweight, and an indulgent pleasure. The other Clayborne brothers, first introduced as a gang of New York City street urchins in Garwood's bestselling For the Roses, meet their matches in One White Rose and One Red Rose.
From Library Journal
Based on characters from Garwood's best-selling For the Roses (Pocket, 1995), this short romance takes headstrong, antimarriage Travis Clayborne, puts him in charge of safely transporting mail-order bride Emily Finnegan to her future husband, and lets proximity takes its course. Travis is determined to keep his promise to Mama Rose?and by the journey's end, he is glad he did. Despite a fast pace, occasional flashes of Garwood's trademark humor, a nice prolog, and the intriguing secondary character One-Eyed Jack, the story is hampered by incomplete character development and a silly heroine. Readers looking for something comparable to Garwood's more substantive works (e.g., Saving Grace, Pocket, 1993) may be disappointed. Nevertheless, this is the first of three novellas that will focus on the Clayborne brothers and their romantic adventures. Garwood lives in Kansas.

...... During their trip, an intimacy develops between them. This forces Emily to discern that she could never go through with her prearranged mail order marriage. When Travis escorts her to her groom, he realizes that he does not want anyone going near Emily except him. He does not fathom that Emily has had a change of heart until they come under attack. If they survive their perilous situation, Travis needs to convince Emily to stay with him instead of returning East.
...... Readers of FOR THE ROSES will be charmed to be reintroduced to the sexy Clayborne brothers as their stories continue. They will especially enjoy the matchmaking machinations of Mama Rosa as she seeks to marry her boys off one by one. ONE PINK ROSE is Travis' story and the woman who is equal in every sense of the world. Julie Garwood demonstrates that she is one of the biggest talents today. She brilliantly captures the essence of a full length feature, but shapes it to fit neatly into a novella without losing any of the richness and magic that is a trademark of her novels.
'One Pink Rose' features Travis Clayborne, the youngest of all the Clayborne brothers, who accompanies a young lady called Emily Finnegan as a favour for his Mama Rose (if u don't read it, you wouldn't understand) because she is a mail-orde bride for someone called Clifford O'Toole. Along the way there, he inevatably falls in love with her, but not before she does so with him. A captivating story! Highly reccommended
