Margaret has loved Marcus her whole life. She feels beneath him in station but can't help the attraction and draw she feels towards him. Marcus knows she exists but is a little older than her and with so many other concerns in his life, plus the fact that he usually gravitates towards women of his own station he hasn't really noticed her. Until now, when he can't help but notice her. Their meeting after him being away for years was pretty fun and cute. Can I just say that I love stories about childhood crushes and friends who grow up and fall in love. Now Marcus and Margaret's reconnection in this story was not at all what they had planned for their lives but when marriage (and a fast unplanned marriage) is needed to protect your home or your life, what other choice do you have but someone who also needs the protection of marriage. I loved Adam, Margaret's cousin and all of his matchmaking. He was great!
If you love historical fiction and sweet characters, sweet romance and a little angst thrown in, then I highly recommend this one. The walks, the horses, the peril, the meddling relatives, the love, the happily ever after moments and most especially the hero and heroine make this a read that I want to come back to again and again.
Content: Clean. Some talk (thoughts) about the marriage bed (time period of the book wording) but nothing graphic, very well written.
In this novella, there is less of the historical backdrop than in the novels in the series, with this story bearing more on the development of the romantic theme. The love angle develops amid mischief wrought by characters with nefarious purposes seeking to derail it.
Margaret has nurtured an infatuation for Marcus since childhood. Unaware of it, Marcus sees marriage with Margaret as a way of meeting an immediate need - to secure his ownership of Holdwell, his family’s estate. Margaret is caught in her own very different dilemma to which such a marriage would provide an immediate solution. So a marriage of convenience is agreed upon as though it were a business arrangement. However, Margaret’s affection for Marcus quickly blossoms into a more mature love as she becomes acquainted with the adult version of Marcus, and in turn he quickly becomes enchanted with his new bride, opening the potential of devoted love.
But sinister plans are afoot, and Amber relates the interesting and sometimes suspenseful story.
If Not For Thee is a good read, as is true of all Amber Lynn Perry’s offerings in the Daughters of His Kingdom series. She is regularly proving herself to be a gifted writer.
Marcus Wells comes home to take care of his recently deceased father’s estate. He had made last-minute addition to the will that Marcus must wed immediately to keep Holdwell Estate. But who would marry him so quickly? When he almost runs over his childhood playmate, Maggie Main, and her cousin suggests she might marry him, he gives the intriguing redhead a second look. But with his aunt and her daughter working against them, can either find happiness? And besides, his father had taught him to never fall in love, and his heart might very well be in danger if he marries the lovely woman.
I loved this sweet novella. Both Marcus and Maggie were easy to like, and the misunderstandings never got out-of-hand or went on for too long. It turned out to be a very satisfying read.
This novella is a story set in colonial times about a marriage of convenience that turns to love despite obstacles. The only thing I wish was different is that the story was longer.
