The Husband Maneuver by KAREN WITEMEYER

THE HUSBAND MANEUVER by KAREN WITEMEYER is the reason I wanted to read, WITH THIS RING?: A NOVELLA COLLECTION OF PROPOSALS GONE AWRY. I have enjoyed every single book MS WITEMEYER has written. Well, that isn’t entirely true. I didn’t “enjoy” every one…I LOVED every one, and THE HUSBAND MANEUVER was no expedition.

The Hawkins foreman, Daniel Barrett is ready to leave his job on the ranch to start his own business. It’s for his own good, in more ways than one. He’d never have a chance with Marietta as long as he continues to work for her father.

When Marietta Hawkins discovers Daniel Barrett - aka Dead-Eye Dan - intends to leave her father’s ranch for his own place, the wheels in her brain start to spinning. No way is she going to risk losing the man she loves.

I remembered Dead-Eye Dan and Marietta from MS WITEMEYER’S previous book. It was fun to see the characters come to life with a story of their own. I loved the scene at the watering hole. MS WITEMEYER is a master at creating unique, loveable, and three-dimensional characters. Her plots are always thought out and captivating.

Her Dearly Unintended by REGINA JENNINGS

HER DEARLY UNINTENDED is my first read by REGINA JENNINGS. I was immediately captivated and brought into the story.

Though Katie might find it difficult to keep up the charade, Josiah finds himself not bother by the situation.

Runaway Bride by MARY CONNEALY

I must say, I love when a hero comes to the rescue of the heroine, and that is exactly what happens in RUNAWAY BRIDE by MARY CONNEALY.

Big John Conroy is hired to help Carrie Halsey escape from a dangerous man intent on making her his wife. A promise he intends to keep. What he didn’t expect is to make another promise to the woman he is falling for.
