Hot Historical:  I love Courtney Milan and Sherry Thomas.  A bit steamier would be Sarah McCarty or Dawn Halliday.

Most of the mail order bride books I've read aren't erotic, just romantic.

If you are looking for HOT but not erotica I would reccoment Elizabeth Hoyt, starting with the Raven Prince which I think is her best book IMO.  If you are willing to go the next step to historical erotica there are many good authors including Emma Wildes, who writes both mmpb and historical erotica, Melissa Schroeder, Mary Wine, Sylvia Day, Julia Templeton, and Jess Michaels amongst others!  While I can't think of any hot mail order books off hand, this one might fit the bill: Rafe's Redemption by Jennifer Jakes.

Have you ever checked out goodreads.com? I belong to a couple of historical romance groups there.  Most have threads for various authors, reading challenges, buddy reads etc..,  It's free to join and you can make "shelves" for vaious themes.  You can bring up shelves and see what other people have put on those shelves to help you find other books like that. 

Romance, Historical or Otherwise

Historical Romance

Bodice Ripper Readers Anonymous

those are three that I belong to but I'm sure there a lot of of others that are geared towards specific time frames: western, midevil, highlanders etc...,

here's a link to books people have shelved Mail Order Brides 

You might have to investigate further to find out how hot they are although I can usually tell by the cover.  The no-sex Christian ones don't usually have sexy covers.  They seem to mostly have a demure looking girl on the cover.
