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 Synopsis
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.

Add to Goodreads:

  Review: This was a great book. I loved how tough Maggie was. I was so sad for her when her father got hurt. The promise he made Garret give him and the fact that Garret didn't want to follow though but did rang true of the old west days when a man was good and true to his word. Maggie and Garret don't see eye to eye often. He is scared of caring for someone who will just leave him. Maggie becomes great friends with Lenny, a native American woman who can do everything a man can do. Lenny helps Maggie toughen up and teachers her the ways of the west. During the battle for the ranch people get kidnapped and shot and killed. A great many secrets are revealed along the way and finally Garret lets Maggie in to his heart. I would recommend this book to anyone but especially those who love a good romantic western.
