Ok, I love this writer! Caroline Clemmons has me so engaged with the series I honestly went straight from book 1, to 2, to now 3. They were all great. This one had me laughing aloud in parts. Bad boy, Josh McClintock gets himself trapped into a shotgun wedding because he climbed into the window of the wrong house while drunker than a skunk and harmed the reputation of Nettie Clayton. Neither bride, nor groom, was happy about this forced union. While Nettie had a crush on Josh, this was not how she wanted to win him. Plus, he ruined her plans to be a teacher and help her brother go to medical school. Watching these two work it out and find love was great fun. This book had danger, humor, and sincerely touching moments. Loved it. Can’t wait for book 4 now. I recommend this series.
The emotional response to being forced to marry is hard on both and makes for a good read, I know you will enjoy this book and will look forward to the next one.
This is the second book in the McClintock series. I like it even better then the first. The characters were so real and the events were so believable for the times. The story was exciting and interesting that I couldn't put it down. It brings out emotions in you that make you feel like part of the story. I liked how the writer incorporated characters from the first book. This story was well written and I am looking forward to the next book coming out in the future.
Nettie’s dream is to find a teaching position and help her younger brother to become a doctor. One night of drunkenness by the town’s bachelor leads to a forced marriage. At first glance, Nettie would be classified as a shy woman, but as Josh finds out, there’s a fiery spirit kept in check there, just waiting for the right catalyst.
Josh McClintock is a hard worker, helping his father on their family ranch. But by night he parties hard. The consummate playboy, it would be hard to truly dislike Josh and to his credit he is attracted to Nettie, he just didn’t plan to marry her. Actually, his plans didn’t extend past the next willing bed partner. There was some real humor in the situation that forces Josh and Nettie to wed. That was nice because the author could have taken it into a different direction when Nettie’s dad walks in demanding answers.
This is a historical novel where the setting, language and colorful descriptions felt very accurate. It was easy to picture the story as it played out. The story is simple, not overly complicated. What really makes this story special are the characters. They were easy to cheer for and it was nice to see them end with a HEA despite the rocky start. The writing and the plot are good. But the story highlights the characters, at their best and their worst.
McClintock’s Reluctant Bride shows how family and love can come into your life in different ways. It has humor, heart and just enough heat to satisfy readers who enjoy a good western historical romance that begins with a shotgun wedding. Worth the read.
