Accidental Courtship

GIVEAWAY
BINGHAM, LISA
ACCIDENTAL COURTSHIP

The bachelor meets his match

No women are allowed at the Batchwell Bottoms mining camp -- yet Dr. Sumner Havisham headed West seeking a job there. When an avalanche strands her and several mail-order-brides, she's up against strict rules -- and stern mine superintendent Jonah Ramsey. But nothing will stop her -- especially from helping Jonah, who needs her healing in more ways than one.

For Jonah, his job is a refuge from his past. He has good reasons to stay far away from the spirited Sumner, especially since he thinks he has nothing to offer. But as tensions rise, her caring and skill ignites a love he'd never thought he'd find. Can they save the dreams they've worked so hard for -- and claim a life together?

The Bachelors of Aspen Valley: Love sweeps into town for these hardworking men

My Review:

Dr. Quinn meets Seven Brides for Seven Brothers in this captivating historical romance. There's something about an avalanche that strands a train full of women (including an abundance of mail-order brides) in an all male town that screams romantic mayhem!

Sumner's got backbone and natural leadership qualities as well as a medical degree if anyone will let her practice. Unfortunately, the mine owners aren't open to a female doctor...or any female for that matter! Makes for some infuriating and frustrating and down right funny situations.

Jonah is the perfect noble hero. He's let pain from his past dictate his solitary life but when Sumner becomes his responsibility he is taunted by dreams of a future he thought long dead. These two crackle and spar at every opportunity until unexpected tenderness begins to break down barriers.

Bingham has set the stage for future books in the series with an intriguing town and some likable secondary characters that definitely need their own happily-ever-after too. A brilliant start to a wonderful new series.

    1. New-to-me as well. I looked her up because I thought this might be her debut novel but it's not. Debut LIH, yes but she's written a ton of mainstream romances. Good luck, Trixi.

  2. Hi Kav, hope you had a wonderful Christmas, I sure did! I'm still basking in it all. The week after Christmas is one of my favorite times of the season, time to pause and reflect and enjoy the assurance of Christ has come, so meaningful!

    I have so many lovely books calling to me from my shelves I had pretty much decided not to enter a giveaway, but then I read the summary and your review, and oh well, I can't seem to help myself, this one is hitting on all the hot spots, wounded hero, determined woman doctor, women stranded in a town full of bachelors like in 7 Brides for 7 brothers, one of my favorite movies growing up! I have succumbed to your persuasive powers, lol, count me in!

    1. Bwahahahaha! You must give in to the universal bookaholic truth that there is no such thing as too many books. :-) This one is exceptionally well done and I'm looking forward to the rest of the series. Good luck, Tracey.

    2. Oops -- forgot to say that, yes, I had a lovely Christmas. We celebrated on Christmas Eve this year which is different from what we usually do. That meant I had Christmas Day all to myself. Guess what I did? Read a whole book and half of another! While grazing on decadent leftovers all day long. Okay, reading isn't anything new for me to do but reading on Christmas day -- all day? -- that is. So it was uber fun. And then CTV showed the 2015 Cinderella movie in the evening. It was definitely a romantical Christmas!
