Answering an advertisement for a “Lone Star bride,” she leaves her Texas ranch and heads to Denver to marry a man she doesn’t know.
Burned by love, he marries now simply to satisfy the board of Morgan Bank, which believes a man of his standing in society should be wed. Together Jake and Marty agree they are done with romance and love and will make this nothing more than a marriage of convenience.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
It seems that every time I pick up a book written by Tracie Peterson, I am thoroughly enchanted. While this is only the second book I have read by this author, it is quite simple to discover why she is a best-selling Christian author. Her stories are definitely a cut above the typical historical romances, and the Christian message is expertly woven into the fabric of the story. This guarantees that a superb story that will bring great joy and delight to the reader is found within the pages of her novels.
I sincerely have no complaints with this book. There is nothing inappropriate, and I can scarcely wait to read more about this marvelous couple! Their spiritual journey was genuine, full of grit, and relatable. In addition to this, Tracie had added humor(sorely lacking in far too many books)as well as every emotion imaginable. Rarely do I find myself nearly crying over a typical historical romance, but indeed, I experienced the emotions simultaneously with Marty. And after all, this book holds a significant place in my heart since the main character’s name is Martha (my daughter’s name)!
I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.
