This book has historical romance. It is wholesome. It is a very clean romance kind of book.
Noah Adams felt the vast tract of property given to him on his twenty-first birthday was legally his until his father died. Suddenly, he learns that the ‘gift’ comes with a condition. Noah must marry within four weeks to gain legal ownership of the property, or he will lose everything. He has limited options because there are no local ladies available. Mary Stanton is a poor woman who is barely living. Her father offers her to a lecherous guy whom she narrowly avoided in the past after determining he can no longer sustain his spinster daughter. When the opportunity to enter a proxy marriage is presented to Mary, she rushes at it. Is it possible for these two strangers to transform a convenient marriage into a love match? Or will Mary terminate the contract at the conclusion of the term?
I loved this story. I loved every page of it. Every chapter was exciting. This is my first book from this author and I can’t wait to read the rest of this series.
