Title: The Unwilling Husband Author: Tera Shanley Genre: Historical Western Romance Release Date: May 5, 2014 Cover Art: Renee Rocco Publisher: Lyrical Press - A Kensington Imprint
For adventurous Margaret Flemming, arrived from Boston to be with her father, the Old West town of her childhood is a far cry from the drawing rooms and balls of the high society life she’s used to. Her fancy gowns and proper manners have no place in the dusty, cruel land inhabited by Indians and rough cowboys. And her fiercely independent streak constantly gets her in trouble. When tragedy strikes, there’s only one person she can turn to--her childhood friend, Garret Shaw--but he’s disgusted with her Society ways.
With his ranch under attack from the land-grabbing Jennings, the last thing Garret needs is to be saddled with a high-falutin’ lady. Even if she is his friend’s daughter and her kind ways tug at his hardened heart. Duty to her father forces them to wed, but he knows sure as anything, when the chance comes along, she’ll go back to Boston. No matter how much he wants her, loving her is not a risk he can take.
I am not a big Historical Western Romance fan but I thought I would give this book a try. Honestly, I am still not a fan but this book was really good. There were so many emotions and the story was not boring. I think that if you like the genre you will love this book. You get to see how old friends deal with each other as adults and how they deal with stresses that come from living on a ranch in Texas.
I am giving this book 4 out of 5 stars. It is a really great story and you will love the characters. They are strong and you want everything to work out for them.
