4.0 out of 5 stars Cute story with a great sex scene and a clever plot December 26, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition
This sixty page short story is a well written journey to marriage. Set in 1876, Adam Ford mourns the loss of his beloved father. As funeral proceedings come to a close, Adam learns that his father and his father's best friend, Benjamin Merrick, had arranged a marriage for Adam. In order to collect his third of the ranch, Adam must marry Ellie Merrick.

Ellie, still the tomboy hellcat Adam remembers, has zero desire to wed. Her goal is to prove to her father that she can run their ranch on her own. Shocking revelations as to why the fathers went as far as to have had a legal document drawn up forcing the two into marriage provides a catalyst to her considering the proposal. The two quickly find that the physical attraction is there. If only they can overcome their individual willfulness.

This is a cute story with a great sex scene and a clever plot. However, the length of the story provided an uphill battle in developing characters and plot tension. In order to move things along quickly, resolutions seemed to play out instantaneously. I personally need reasons why two people can announce they are in love with each other. In paranormal romances, creatures with fated mates can understandably fall into lifelong love in an instant. It is a much harder sell for an author of human romance. And although well-written with some wonderful scenes, the lack of that sell is what left me feeling needy.

If you are sitting in a doctor's office wanting a way to pass the time in the waiting room, this is a fun way to spend those few minutes. Give it a go and? Enjoy!
