Max McCord doesn't know what to make of the whiskey swilling, cussing woman he finds himself tied to. She saved his life, and now marrying her has ruined it. He sees his dreams, the life he planned disappear. What on earth does he do now?
Marrying Max begins Low Down's transformation into Louise, the woman she's always kept hidden from the world. Their marriage sets all kinds of trouble into motion, but the relationship they forge soon proves strong enough to handle each and every one of them. The only question that remains by the end of the book, is will these two strong people allow themselves to let down their defenses and let love flourish?
Maggie Osborne is a powerful storyteller and Silver Lining was truly a heart-warming read.
Low Down, aka Louise Downe, has led a rough life. She's an orphaned woman who has been living on her own since she was a kid, and has been doing this without compromising her values. She is the only person in a mining town in Colorado willing to tend a bunch of sick men, and if she hadn't they'd have all died of the pox. Thus, when they offer her anything she wants as a reward, and she says she wants a baby, one of them must marry her to give her her wish. However, because Low Down has been tending for their sick butts and mining for quite a while, she's a mess when all this happens, and no one wants to marry her, least of all the guy she gets hitched to.
Max, the guy that marries Low Down, is actually a visiting rancher who has led a pretty good life and wants to return to it ASAP, not marry the haggardly Low Down. Plus Max is a little ...[mad] because he was supposed to marry this manipulative, vapid woman back home named Philadelphia. So, Max loves Philly (for some ungodly reason), but he felt honor-bound to marry Low Down.
My problems with this storyline were many. First, Loise/Low Down has been tending to these men for a while but yet none of them gives her the benefit of the doubt. Everyone, including the hero, assumes she's a hag. This does not endear the hero to the reader at all -- apparently in this world it's more important that you look cute than that you are a kind, compassionate, honorable person.Read more ›

Silvers lining is a story set in (I guess) late 1800’s, a time of panning for gold, cow ranching and well just general westernyness. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Bordly
