The last thing widow Althea Winsloe wanted to do was remarry. Unfortunately, her meddlesome mountain neighbors had other plans. So, one autumn night they banded together and gave Althea a shocking ultimatum: She was to find herself a husband by Christmas…or the town would do it for her! Althea knew she had her choice of any single man in Marrying Stone, Arkansas. Yet the only one she felt truly comfortable with was Simple Jess. It would take a miracle to find a husband in Marrying Stone. But sometimes miracles are right under your nose ….
It features a hero that has a mental disability where he was deprived of oxygen at birth when the cord was wrapped around his neck. When I saw it mentioned again over at DA on a post recommending books with disability, I was happy to see it had finally been made available as an ebook on the Kindle store.
The story is based around Althea Winsloe, a young widow with a three year old son, who is left on the farm to run by herself. What she loved with all her heart is the son they created, baby Paisley.
Althea has sworn that she would never get married again due to the pain she suffered as a child when her father left her alone in this town whilst he went off and started a new life with his new wife.
But with both sides of her family nagging to get married, Althea is trapped during a silly dance game that turns mean spirited, and forces Althea to choose between two men to get married, Eben and Oather. Once Jesse learns something, he never forgets.
Jesse is instantly drawn to Althea, and Althea to him. This was such a sweet romance that I grew to love Jesse because of his sweet nature. I did find Paisley to be a little annoying as I thought he acted a little too old for his age, but that does seem to be a common theme throughout lots of novels that feature kids. There are scenes where both characters are drawn to one another with glances and the simplest of touches.
They were lusty, and I was so happy to see both get their HEA. Kindle eBook. One thing that Lou loves most is her HEA in romances. You will most likely see her reading for those happy endings in her favorite genres, such as Contemporary Romance, NA, and Fantasy. What an awesome book this must be. I have not read anything by this author, but I would like to read this one. I have read a book by Christine Feehan with an autistic heroine, and really loved that one.
I read this book years ago and really enjoyed it. I think it was a western. Heller : Yay, hope you enjoy it just as much this time around. I forgot was a dick Eben was to Mavis…what a horrible guy. I actually had a difficult time reading those scenes because he was so horrible. He just seemed way over the top. Your email address will not be published. Notify me of followup comments via e-mail.
