This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Whoever heard of a mail-order bride in the 21st century? Julianne Dawson had mixed emotions driving across the country to marry the cowboy she remembered from summers at her uncle's ranch. Anxious to leave her former life behind, is she delusional in thinking that a rancher's wife would offer her the life she wants?
Desperate actions needed to keep the family ranch. No one in their right mind sends off for a bride he's doesn't know—not in this day and age. Yet Blake Reynolds does exactly that. He'll do anything to keep the family ranch even marry a virtual stranger—as long as she can produce a child within the year.
Can a marriage of convenience for both the bride and groom end in happiness for either, or is necessity the only driving force in this arrangement?
A modern day mail order bride
I really enjoyed this modern day version of a mail order bride. Julianne Douglas agrees to marry Blake Reynolds after answering his ad in Western Ranchers. In order to save his ranch, he must marry and have a child. He only has a year left, so running out of time. Julianne was hoping to marry Steven, but when he found out she was sick, he broke up with her. Perfect timing for Blake. This book also includes a secondary romance story with Blake’s twenty-one year old son, Shell and his pregnant girlfriend Loni. Loni doesn’t want to stay a famous artist. If you enjoy reading western romance, you will truly enjoy this fantastic read.
