How I Got It: I own it
The Wedding of the Century by MARY JO PUTNEY
Stunningly beautiful and extraordinarily wealthy, Sarah Vangelder had always wanted more for herself than to be sold into marriage for the price of a dukedom. But marriage to Justin Aubrey might be the adventure she's always dreamed of….
Overall I enjoyed this song. I liked the main characters. Sarah and Justin are likable if a bit melodramatic. But this is a romance short story, so I forgive it. The story is predictable, yet I'm okay with it. However, I knocked the story down a star for the turning point of the story. It's a bit uncomfortable and I'm still not sure where I stand on the ethics behind it.
Jesse's Wife by KRISTIN JAMES
When a late-night walk on her father's ranch inadvertently destroys her reputation, Amy McCallister finds herself married off to Jesse, a sinfully handsome farmhand. But can he convince her to give him her heart, despite their rocky beginning?
Loved this story. It reminded me of all the western themed romances I've read in the past. Very light, very fluffy, very predictable, but still a lot fo fun to read.
Seduced by Starlight by CHARLOTTE FEATHERSTONE
Jase Markham, London's most dashing—and notorious—rake, has loved his brother's fiancée for as long as he can remember. When his brother casts Blossom aside, Jase is determined to finally make her his—if she's willing to overlook his scandalous reputation!
Most definitely my favorite story of the book. I loved the set up between Blossom and Jase. And we get to see the story from Jase's perspective. Very unexpected. I couldn't wait to get to the end of the story. I sped through the pages even with a horrendous headache. Very enjoyable.
