Fill-In Father…and Husband
Sweet mail-order bride Nancy Bennett can’t believe it when her husband is exposed as a cattle rustler—and killed. And when the banker holding the ranch’s mortgage questions whether she can run the ranch on her own, the pregnant widow has nowhere to turn. Until steady foreman Hank Snowden proposes marriage…
Racked with grief about his role in Lucas Bennett’s death, Hank resolves to do right by the man’s wife and child. So it’s natural for him to step in as Nancy’s newly minted husband. But the marriage of convenience may become more than a mere obligation…if only Hank and his bride can brave the first steps toward elusive true love.
One of life’s treasures.
A Rancher of Convenience is another.
I adored reading A Rancher of Convenience. It’s a sweet and loving Romance that very slowly moves to show the wonderful things friends and family bring to enrich our lives. A Rancher of Convenience begins by showing us how wonderful friends can make life’s hardships easier and then moved on to show us how a family can pull us through even the scariest of circumstances. And of course, that love can fix many things.
This isn’t very much a Christian romance, however, I would phrase it as a sweet historical romance. Definitely something worth spending the day reading!
