This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Beautiful, spirited, Texas born Ellie Burnett needs a husband. Fast. Her father, rancher Archibald Burnett, is dying, and she’s determined to marry to protect the ranch and preserve her father’s legacy in Montana’s rugged Paradise Valley. The trouble is, she wants to wear the boots in the family and the man she has in mind, Irishman Thomas Sheenan would never stand for that.
Independent and taciturn Thomas Sheenan isn’t looking for a wife, having spent far too much of his life taking care of others. He’s come to Montana to carve out his own identity, and be his own man. The last thing he needs is a headstrong bride, but when Ellie approaches him with the offer of a lifetime, he can’t refuse.
Thomas didn’t anticipate falling for his new bride. He moved to Montana to stake his claim…he never planned on losing his heart.
A Marriage of Convenience
A marriage of convenience that leads to so much more, even though Elle and Thomas don't want to admit at first. Elle is in need of a husband, fast, her father is dying and needs someone to help manage the ranch. Thomas has arrived for Ireland years back to make it rich, this will be perfect for him. Elle and Thomas are both bullheaded, that it is comical at times. Neither want to admit that they have fallen in love with each other.
Loved, loved this book!! Great characters that I fell in love with. Elle is so strong willed, use to getting her way, " daddy's little girl". Thomas, lost so much in his life, he is not about ready to give up on this ranch. My favorite part was the combing of Elle's hair, brought tears to my eyes. Jane Porter knows how to transport you into a different time period with her storytelling. I highly recommend this book.
Marriage of Convenience
I loved, loved, loved Jane Porter’s historical story, Married in Montana, the second book in the Paradise Valley Ranch series which will give those readers who love the Marietta, Montana stories a glimpse at the town’s founding families. This is Ellie Burnett and Thomas Sheenan’s story, the patriarchs of those Sheenan brothers Jane Porter writes so well about. This story has its sad parts, grieving the death of family members that affects both Ellie and Thomas, but then the happy, loving parts gave this reader hope for these two. I especially enjoyed learning the origin of the Sheenan name as my family name was another of those altered one when my relatives arrived at Ellis Island.
I really enjoyed reading this book and had trouble putting this book down, reading it in one day. Ms. Porter is a wonderful story teller, always drawing me into her books, and making me forget the world around me. I highly recommend this book to other readers and I really look forward to the next book in this series.
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
marriage of convenience
Love was never part of the agreement. Ellie wanted to save the ranch and Thomas was trustworthy to run it. Emotions run high as they fight the passion to make the marriage work, but is passion enough to keep this family together? They must learn to trust and love by opening their hearts and minds to possibility...for a future.
