I got this book free from Bethany house in exchange for my honest review
Seriously this is an amazing collection of authors!!
The first 3 are some of my favorite authors and I think that was the first story I’ve read by Melissa. I loved that the first three connected to a series or past book!!! But with that being said I don’t think you’ll be lost if you read them without reading the previous book or books.(though I highly recommend you read them)
For Karen Witmeyer’s story (The Husband Maneuver) it connected to A Worthy Pursuit, I loved seeing how Dan and Marietta got together. For Regina Jenning’s story (Her Dearly Unintended), it connects to the ozarc mountian series, in the last book she hinted about Josiah liking Katie, it was nice to see how that played out but I wasnt expecting it to be 3 years later lol
Marys Connealy’s story (Runaway Bride) connected to the Kincaid Brothers series and Trouble in Texas series! I loved seeing so many characters ( even if it wasnt till the end) and how they all are doing.
Melissa Jagears’ (Engaging the Competition) story was good and I’m looking forward to reading more of her books.
Four top historical romance novelists team up in this new collection to offer stories of love and romance with a twist of humor. In Karen Witemeyer’s “The Husband Maneuver,” Marietta Hawkins decides to grab the reins when the ranch foreman she loves seems to be leaving forever. Regina Jennings offers “Her Dearly Unintended,” where friends stranded by a rising river pretend to be newlyweds when a dangerous stranger arrives.
Mary Connealy’s “Runaway Bride” finds a Texas ranger getting more than he expected when he rescues a young woman fleeing a dangerous arranged marriage. And Melissa Jagears’ “Engaging the Competition” finds a young woman forced to assist the man she’s often sparred with after an accident leaves him helpless. Each tale is a fun blend of history and romance that will delight readers.
