I voluntarily reviewed this book
Published: November 8, 2016
Number of pages: 288
Genre: Historical Romance
Series: Frontier Bachelors #5
Synopsis:The Marriage Agreement
Proposing a marriage of convenience to a rugged logger is the boldest move of Nora Underhill's sheltered life. In return for Simon Wallin's protection from her overbearing family, the unassuming seamstress offers prime frontier farmland. But their paper marriage changes when Nora's greedy brother tries to draw her back into a life of drudgery. Her only option: move to Simon's farm, and into the center of his loving, unruly family.
Years of shouldering responsibility have left Simon cynical and reserved. But little by little, Nora's warmth opens his shuttered heart to joy. With their marriage claim under threat, can this practical arrangement blossom over the holidays…and become a love for all seasons?
This was a fun light hearted book for me. In order to get out from her not so nice brother Nora went to the extreme and did something not done by women in her time and proposed to Simon. It was nice to watch their relationship grow from one of convenience to one of love. I really enjoyed the setting of this book as I enjoy a good historical fiction book and add in a little romance and that is just a bonus for me. The author also did a good job with the descriptions of everything from the characters to the landscapes to the feelings of each person. I have enjoyed many books by this author and with each book I enjoy her writing even more. Even though this is a part of a series you are able to read it as a stand alone book.
About the author:Regina Scott started writing novels in the third grade. Thankfully for literature as we know it, she didn't actually sell her first novel until she'd learned a bit more about writing. After numerous short stories and articles in magazines and trade journals, and a good kick in the backside from her husband, she got serious about writing. Since then, she's had published more than two dozen clean historical romances for adults and young adults. Her traditional romances have earned praised from reviewers and readers alike. Booklist calls her work "quietly compelling" and "impeccably written." Huntress Reviews says, "Regina Scott delivers," and "I will always buy a book with Regina Scott's name on it."
Regina Scott is the author of the Everard Legacy series (The Rogue's Reform, The Captain's Courtship, The Rake's Redemption, and The Heiress's Homecoming), the Master Matchmaker series (The Courting Campaign, The Wife Campaign, and The Husband Campaign), and the Lady Emily Capers (Secrets and Sensibilities, Art and Artifice, and Ballrooms and Blackmail). In November 2014, she launched her Frontier Bachelors series with the publication of The Bride Ship.
She makes her home in the Puget Sound area of Washington State with her beloved husband and a hyperactive Irish terrier named Fergus.
