An Unexpected Partnership
Quaker Rachel Woolsey dreams of having her own bakery and her own homestead. But the odds are stacked against her—until the handsome ex-soldier she nurses back to health offers to help her. Like Rachel, Brennan Merriday is an outsider. But he'll be the temporary ally she needs, and her foolish attraction will fade once he's gone.
At first, the only thing Brennan wants to know about Pepin, Wisconsin, is how fast he can leave it. Perhaps in Canada he'll find peace after a bloody war. Yet repaying his debt to the pretty baker offers unexpected solace. She saved him once. Now he longs to rescue dreams of family—for both of them.
Wilderness Brides: Finding love—and a fresh start—on the frontier
I absolutely loved the contrast between the Quaker heroine and the embittered Civil War vet. Rachel is such a great combination of faith and practicality. She's gifted at holding her tongue most of the time but when she does let loose her simple wisdom delivered in a matter-of-fact (and often unasked for) manner always seems to shake Brennan up. And he's so surly about it too! The real charm of this story is watching him gradually tamed by the gentle, steely-spined Quakeress.
