Today is my daughter’s birthday. The baby of the family. A grown woman making a difference in the world, and a lover of books like her mom. Happy Birthday Rose-Ann! May the year ahead be successful and filled with wisdom for the tasks appearing in front of you.
Alright, back to books.
BookBub has a bargain suggestion for us. We’ve seen book one in this series before but not the other three so this will be a new read.
Dakota Brides Boxed Set: Books 1-4
Lena Stevens has lost everything. Everything except her son. When her neighbor Anker proposes a marriage of convenience, she has no choice but to accept, but makes him vow to annul it come spring. Anker has longed for a wife–but not like this. A forced marriage with an end date. Can what started as a pretense turn into something more?
Elin Hanson has traveled across the ocean as a mail-order bride. When she arrives in the Dakota Territory, she finds the man she has planned to marry has abandoned her–and left her to care for his young son. Sam Andrews has his hands full running his ranch. The last thing he needs is a woman and little boy getting in his way. When Elin’s groom-to-be comes home, she must make the choice: settle for a loveless marriage? Or hold out for love?
America was supposed to provide a new life, but Freyda has found only bitterness since making the treacherous journey from Norway. She has no choice but to strike a reluctant bargain with her neighbor. In exchange for his help, she will care for his two little boys. The more she is forced to work with Ward, the more she begins to realize that maybe God didn’t intend her to be alone. But Ward’s walls of distrust and past hurts are high–maybe too high for her to scale. Can she, and two little boys, open his heart to love again?
Agnes Bland has learned the hard way just how crushing it can be to trust in someone else. When she is made guardian to three little girls, the boarding house refuses to rent to them, and Agnes and the girls are left with nowhere else to go. Nels Hanson has an empty house. When Agnes and the girls fill up the structure–and his life–with their giggles and tears, he decides a marriage of convenience isn’t the worst thing in the world. Until Agnes rejects his proposal…
This is a skinny day for new books but at least it’s a four in one kind of day.
Happy Reading everyone.
