STORY-LINE HIS STUBBORN SWEET BRIDE:
Proper English gentleman Nate Trowbridge and his sister, Leonie, inherited a ranch in the wild West of America. Informed by ranch hand Will everything’s in good shape, they journey to their new inheritance. However, upon arriving their lives take a sharp turn right.
Not only is the ranch in an awful state, but through no fault of his own Nate also finds himself engaged to Irish Molly Clanahan. Jem, through a series of hilarious events, delivered the proposal letter to the wrong woman. Molly refuses to release him from his written proposal. Instead of a gently bred young lady he intended to wed, Nate finds himself engaged to a “gold digging hayden” who is holding on to his proposal with an iron grip. Molly has reasons for refusing to go away quietly; reasons she holds secret. Leonie, a hopeless romantic, takes Molly under her wing; taking Molly’s side against her brother. Things are heating up on the ranch as Leonie refuses to believe Nate will turn Molly away.
When Molly secretly leaves the ranch, Nate decides to find out Molly’s secrets and history. He will find his reputation, honor, heart, and his very life, on the line in His Stubborn Sweet Bride. Oh the adventure ahead for all in this story. My Christian romance book reviews of His Stubborn Sweet Bride follows.
CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, DEVELOPMENT:
What an adventure is in store for the reader in this sweet clean Christian novel. Chloe Carley filled this novel with mystery, upper-crust English, secrets, and, of course, romance. With Molly’s desperation to stay and bring Nate to heel, and Nathan’s horror of the situation he found himself, I stayed glued to this story. Then Carley included a villain that no one would like. The Wild West was a time of lawlessness, greed, and wicked men. The villain, Jack, is the perfect example of wickedness; I couldn’t wait for him to get his due.
