Pretending to Wed by Melissa Jagears

Pretending to Wed (Frontier Vows, #2)
Add caption


It’s a match made in heaven, as long as they don’t fall in love!

The ranch Nolan Key has spent decades working for, even lost a leg for, is now his—or at least it should be. But an absurd clause in his father’s will means he’s in danger of losing the place to his lazy, undeserving cousin. Nolan finds himself scrambling to save his home—by proposing marriage to the town laundress.

Corinne Stillwater’s hands have betrayed her. Numb from hours of doing the same work over and over, her hands will only heal, according to the town doctor, if she gives up the laundry and marries. But she’s been stung repeatedly by love before, so that is one remedy she can’t swallow.

When Nolan offers Corinne a marriage in name only, how can she refuse? Such a partnership could give them the security they seek, but what if the ranch isn't as secure as they believe, and their lives—and dreams—aren't quite as compatible as they thought?

Pretending to Wed is the second book in the Frontier Vows Series by award-winning Christian romance author Melissa Jagears. If you like marriage-of-convenience stories that deal with the nitty-gritty of making a relationship work, you’ll love this authentic romance set in a time gone by that tackles issues still relevant for today.


When you get a Melissa Jagears book you know you're in for a treat!
I loved the humor that this author adds in her books and I think I fell in love with Nolan at some point and times in the story. "Sigh"
It's not because of his good looks I can tell you that. I think it's for his stubborn strength and determination to fight for what he thinks is rightfully his. I don't blame him for that. I would too!
Actually, they're both about as stubborn as you know what.
There were time I wanted to smack them both as I felt that God has led them together for a reason and they're both too blind to see it. I wanted to shout "wake up!" See what's right in front of you!"
I didn't finish right away. I wanted to savor this book for as long as I could. I just hate saying goodbye to my friends but I know that I can always reread this book. It's well worth it!
Melissa just has that certain spark to her books. They come from the heart and her stories are always well thought out. It's her special style of writing.
I enjoyed every moment of this book. I think I'll order the print copy when it comes available because this book is a keeper in my book!!
I especially love the cover. I laughed because she had her fingers crossed behind her back. What's she up to?
You'll just have to read this book to find out!
I highly recommend this book!
My thanks to the author for a complimentary copy of this book.
