Pretending to Wed
It’s a match made in heaven…as long as they don’t fall in love!
The ranch Nolan Key has spent decades working for, even lost a leg for, is now his—or at least it should be. But an absurd clause in his father’s will means he’s in danger of losing the place to his lazy, undeserving cousin. Nolan finds himself scrambling to save his home—by proposing marriage to the town laundress.
Corinne Stillwater’s hands have betrayed her. Numb from hours of doing the same work over and over, her hands will only heal, according to the town doctor, if she gives up the laundry and marries. But she’s been stung repeatedly by love before, so that is one remedy she can’t swallow.
When Nolan offers Corinne a marriage in name only, how can she refuse? Such a partnership could give them the security they seek, but what if the ranch isn't as secure as they believe, and their lives—and dreams—aren't quite as compatible as they thought?
Pretending to Wed is the second book in the Frontier Vows Series by award-winning Christian romance author Melissa Jagears. If you like marriage-of-convenience stories that deal with the nitty-gritty of making a relationship work, you’ll love this authentic romance set in a time gone by that tackles issues still relevant for today.
After reading the first book in this series I couldn’t wait to read this one. Once again I was not disappointed. It was very hard to put it down once I started reading. I would highly recommend this book!!
I’m enjoying this series greatly. Book 1 was one of my favorite books by Melissa but this one was really good too, I love stories of marriages of convenience and Melissa always has a great mix of faith and love and she always tells a great wholesome story, she is one of my favorite authors and once again she did not disappoint.
Marriage of Convenience Leads to True Love
Corrine and Nolan start out their marriage with a business deal, and they both long to prove themselves worthy. Bodily limitations and past heartaches lead to insecurities, and the wicked intentions of family threaten their path to happiness. I really like the godly support, encouragement, and advice from steadfast friends that help them navigate along the way. All these elements combine to transform mutual respect into a true love that reflects God’s love for us all.
