The Substitute Bride
Finally married but to a man who doesn’t even like her Gwendolyn detests the thought of even another day. Especially since he still pines for her beautiful sister.

A Highbrow Hoodwink

Hott Overall Review of The Lassoed by Marriage Romance Collection:
Overall, I really enjoyed The Lassoed by Marriage Romance Collection. It’s a cute set of novellas that gives the reader a great picture of life more than a century ago – along with some fun romances. While some of the books showed a great picture of Christianity others were just clean romances — giving a bit of something for everyone.
