Would-Be Wilderness Wife

GIVEAWAY

SCOTT, REGINA
WOULD-BE WILDERNESS WIFE

The Kidnapped Bride Drew Wallin's youngest brother is determined to see him married - so he kidnaps Drew a prospective bride. Not only is Catherine Stanway beautiful, but she's a nurse who can help their ailing mother. Drew doesn't have time for distractions - he's too busy watching over his fatherless siblings. Yet he's drawn to this woman who carries loss and pain equal to his own. Catherine has traveled West to use her nursing skills to save lives, not to find a husband. She knows if she gives in to Drew's matchmaking family, she'll be risking her already bruised heart. But maybe it's time she takes the ultimate risk to win the groom she didn't know she wanted! Frontier Bachelors: Bold, rugged - and bound to be grooms

My Review:

I'm loving this series! Would-Be Wilderness Bride is the second Frontier Bachelors story. Readers who have read The Bride Ship will be familiar with Catherine and a few of the secondary characters. No worries, though, this book reads perfectly well as a standalone but it does continue the story of the Mercer Brides in Seattle.

The shenanigans of Drew and his brothers put me in mind of that epic film, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. There's humour aplenty as the conniving Wallin family decide they want Catherine as a daughter-in-law with Drew as the perspective groom. Both are resistant to the idea, but not to each other. Such a conundrum! A slightly sinister side plot balances the levity and provides a bit of intrigue. A powerful combination that kept me turning pages. Another winning read from this wonderful author and I am thrilled that Drew has so many brothers because that means there will be plenty more to come.
