Editorial Reviews

Review

"MADE FOR MARRIAGE: The first meeting between Australian businessman Noah Preston and American horse riding instructor Callie Jones is not a pleasant one, though the attraction between them is instant. Callie thinks getting involved with Noah is out of the question. He's a single father of four kids living out a life she probably will never have. Yet when it comes to Noah and the kids, the usually closed, non-expressive Callie finds her heart opening up to the possibility of love. Though predictable in plot, Made for Marriage is a sweet story that will warm the heart."

More About the Author

Helen Lacey grew up reading Black Beauty, Anne of Green Gables and Little House on The Prairie. These childhood classics inspired her to write her first book when she was seven years old, a story about a girl and her horse. Her parents' love of travel meant she saw much of the world in those early years and she feels fortunate to have had a diverse and interesting education over several continents.

She continued to write into her teens and twenties with the dream of one day being a published author. A few years and careers later she got the call from Harlequin Special Edition. She loves writing about tortured heroes, both cowboys and CEO's, and heroines who finally get the love of the man of their dreams.

From Welsh parents and a large family, she lives on the east coast of Australia in a small seaside town at the southern most point of The Great Barrier Reef, with her wonderfully supportive husband, many horses and three spoiled dogs.

Made for Marriage (Harlequin Special Edition)

MADE FOR MARRIAGE by debut author Helen Lacey is a Harlequin Special Editions January 2012 release.

Equestrian Callie Jones was struggling financially with her beloved business venture. She loved her riding school and was used to difficult parents but could not really afford to lose more customers. Just recently she lost two spoilt girls when she caught them smoking. She had certain rules which everyone had to abide by.

Rebellious thirteen year old Lily Preston came, who flaunted her rule and landed on the ground. Yet her dad, single father, gorgeous Noah overreacted. He questioned Callie's ability to teach. Even angry he is aware of certain dormant stirrings in his blood by Callie's nearness.

Noah wants to delve into the sadness he could glimpse in Callie's eyes. But will Callie allow him to? She has after all sworn off from relationships after her disastrous past. But she couldn't keep away from Noah as well!

MADE FOR MARRIAGE is a single dad's story and how he finds his happily ever after. It also is the story of a heroine who learns to trust and love again after a disastrous past. Noah is an amazing man. He cherished children that weren't his own, yet Callie's ex hadn't wanted his own child, so how could she have loved him? She knew she loved Noah and his children with everything in her now.

3.5 out of 5 stars, this dynamic book was one I didn't want to put down!! Callie and Noah's pasts are what keeps them from getting into any type of new relationship, but once they meet each other their chemistry flies off the page and even though Callie really doesn't want to get over her past mistakes/grievances Noah makes her do so without even trying. I really loved them as a couple! Plus, this story has such fun secondary characters! From Lily (a thirteen-year-old girl who still can't get over the mother who abandoned her four years ago) to Evie (Noah's sister who acts like a mother hen when it comes to Noah and his children) and the rest of Noah's family to their friends (Fiona and Cameron), I just couldn't get enough of everyone. Therefore, I cannot WAIT for the next books to come out by this author (Evie's story "Marriage Under The Mistletoe" in November 2012 & Fiona's story in early 2013).

I recommend this book to everyone who likes contemporary romance novels!!

Made For Marriage (Harlequin Special Edition) by Helen Lacey

After a double tragedy in Callie Jones life she decides to grab a few possessions and her prize horse Indiana and move from California to Crystal Point Australia. She opens her own Equestrian center offering riding lessons. She is feisty, beautiful, loyal to friends, headstrong and has no problem standing up for herself.

Noah Preston a single father has been raising his four children after his wife walked out on them. With piercing green eyes and dark hair, he is every woman's dream. He is handsome, caring, loving, and protective and knows when to admit he was wrong.

Noah shows up at Sandhills Farm and finds his headstrong impulsive daughter Lily has been thrown from a horse. When he questions Callie's teaching abilities it starts a war of words between these two. Noah is stunned at Callie's beauty and the attraction he feels for her. The growing love between these two was believable.

I just felt my heart melting for Callie's character. I thought the author did a fantastic job of showing her struggles with all she had lost. It made for a very emotional read at times. The author also did a great job of showing how Callie's character handles being around other children.

Besides the children, Lily 13, Jamie 8, and twins Hayley and Matthew age 4. We are introduced to Noah's siblings Evie, Grace and Mary-Jayne. Along with friends: Cameron, Fiona and Callie's Brother Scott.

I really enjoyed Made for Marriage and look forward to reading the other books in the series.

5/5 stars

I received an ARC of this book from the Author in exchange for an honest review.

I adored this book. Noah is an incredibly sexy hero, and Callie was so vulnerable and believable. Helen Lacey does sexual tension better than anyone I know. You're in for a treat with this book!
