A Convenient Christmas Wedding

GIVEAWAY
 
SCOTT, REGINA
A CONVENIENT CHRISTMAS WEDDING

The marriage agreement

Proposing a marriage of convenience to a rugged logger is the boldest move of Nora Underhill's sheltered life. In return for Simon Wallin's protection from her overbearing family, the unassuming seamstress offers prime frontier farmland. But their paper marriage changes when Nora's greedy brother tries to draw her back into a life of drudgery. Her only option: move to Simon's farm, and into the center of his loving, unruly family.

Years of shouldering responsibility have left Simon cynical and reserved. But little by little, Nora's warmth opens his shuttered heart to joy. With their marriage claim under threat, can this practical arrangement blossom over the holidays...and become a love for all seasons?

My Review:

A three-legged cow and a talking dog. Need I say more? I do love the unexpected when it comes to animals in a story and Scott certainly delivers! And I do love a good marriage of convenience romance and this one is excellent.

How Simon became so serious and reserved coming from the rowdy Wallin clan is beyond me. Loved the give and take between all the siblings -- lots of comedic fodder there. And fans of the Frontier Bachelors series will enjoy reconnecting with these audacious brothers.

It isn't long before Nora works her magic on the entire family -- a reluctant Simon included. Christmas festivities prove to be the perfect backdrop of their burgeoning romance. A scrumptiously festive read for the holidays.

  15. Oh, how I enjoy the marriage-of-convenience trope, as well. There's are so many directions a writer can go in that type of story line. It's the perfect platform for humor and a developing romance. Unfortunately, Regina Scott is one of those authors whose work I haven't read, but really want to. tlhcoupon(at)hotmail(dot)com
