A Marriage of Convenience Turns Most Inconvenient in this Historical Charmer
Having fled a difficult home life, Civil War nurse Abigail Stuart feels like her only friend in the world is sweet but gravely wounded patient Jeremiah Calhoun. Fearing he won't survive, the Confederate soldier's last wish is that Abigail look after his sickly sister at home. Marry him, return to his horse farm, and it'll be hers.
Left with few choices, Abigail takes him up on his offer and moves to Missouri after his death, but just as the family learns to accept her, the real Jeremiah Calhoun appears--puzzled to find a confounding woman posing as his wife. Jeremiah is determined to have his life back to how it was before the war, but his own wounds limit what he can do on his own. Still not fully convinced Abigail isn't duping him, he's left with no choice but to let the woman stay and help--not admitting to himself she may provide the healing his entire family needs.
This is the third book I’ve read by Regina Jennings, and the second one I couldn’t put down. The description and cover really intrigued me and I loved the book.
Abigail is a nurse in a confederate prison hospital and her favorite patient “Romeo” is dyeing of gangrene, he’s trying to convince thee to marry him before he dies so she can take care of his sister, mom and their horse farm(she grew up raising horses with her dad) he finally convinced her to and tells her his name is Jeremiah Calhoun.
Imagine her surprise when Jeremiah shows up after she’s been on his farm for a month or two and he’s not the same man. He wants her kicked off the farm for posing as his wife but his mother has come to trust her and thinks there must be a reason for the mistake.
Wait till you find out who “Romeo” was I guessed it right after a bit!
I’d totally recommend this book!!!
Can’t wait to see if the next in the series is connected to any of the characters we met in this book!!
