I may have mentioned this about 109 times before, but I love historical romance, especially when it comes from one of my favorite inspirational authors, Karen Witemeyer. I have yet to read anything she has written that isn’t witty, fun, riveting and exciting.
Her latest offering, Short-Straw Bride, did not fall short of the mark. It was extremely difficult for me to get anything done when I was reading it because I just didn’t want to put it down!
Here is the book description:
“No one steps on Archer land. Not if they value their life. But when Meredith Hayes overhears a lethal plot to burn the Archer brothers off their ranch, a twelve-year-old debt compels her to take the risk.Fourteen years of constant vigilance hardens a man. Yet when Travis Archer confronts a female trespasser with the same vivid blue eyes as the courageous young girl he once aided, he can’t bring himself to send her away. And when an act of sacrifice leaves her injured and her reputation in shreds, gratitude and guilt send him riding to her rescue once again.Four brothers. Four straws. One bride. Despite the fact that Travis is no longer the gallant youth Meredith once dreamed about, she determines to stand by his side against the enemy that threatens them both. But will love ever be hers? Or will Travis always see her merely as a short-straw bride?”
If you’re looking for a good, clean novel that will keep you entertained from start to finish, give this one a try!
