About the Author
As long as I can remember, I've made up adventures. I admit the early creative stories featured me riding the range with Roy Rogers and Dale Evans and saving the West. What a disappointment to learn that Roy was exclusively committed to Dale! Eventually, my best friend from across the street and I decided to become better detectives than Nancy Drew. We drove our parents and neighbors crazy sticking our pert little noses where they didn't belong. About that time I started writing down my adventures, but mostly I was a reader. Not until I read Nora Roberts' early novels did I decide to create my own romance manuscripts. My road to publishing was a lot slower than Nora's was. No surprise there! I still read Nora's books—as well as those of countless other authors—but now I write full time. Unless life interferes, that is. My Hero and I live one a small acreage in the ranching and horse country of North Central Texas. Finally, my childhood dream has come true and I’m in the midst of cowboys. Our two daughters are grown and in their own homes not far away. Living with Hero and me now are Webster, our sweet black Shih Tzu, and our two shorthaired cats: Sebastian, a large black and white tuxedo who thinks he's our watchcat; and Bailey Erin, a shy apricot tabby who mostly stays in my office. When I'm not writing, I love spending time with family, reading, traveling with Hero, browsing antique malls and estate sales, and digging into family history and genealogy. Writing about strong heroes and heroines who overcome amazing obstacles to forge a meaningful life together is my passion. I love to hear from readers at caroline @ carolineclemmons (dot) com.

For the first time in her life, Sarah is traveling alone. Returning from her mother's funeral in Arkansas, she defies society's strictures and saves three homeless orphans. As she struggles to care for the children, Sarah discovers hidden strengths in herself. Throughout the book, she grows from a biddable young lady into an assertive woman.
This transformation alone makes Caroline Clemmons' newest release worth reading. But the book is so much more.
The story begins with Nate Bartholomew buried alive! Nate must claw and kick his way out of a pine box and six feet of dirt! Nate is a rogue. A sexy, golden-eyed gambler bent on taking from Miss-High-and-Mighty Sarah Kincaid what should have been his to begin with. His half of the money from the saloon Sarah's mother and his father ran together. Trouble is, Nate is supposed to be dead.
So he decides to steal back his money by tricking the people of Kincaid Springs. He's done his share of flimflamming in the past, though on a smaller scale. And why not seduce Miss-Butter-Wouldn't-Melt-In-Her-Mouth Kincaid while he's at it?
But Nate soon realizes he can't go through with it when Sarah gazes at him with those violet eyes and sweet innocence. Just because he helped her with those orphans, she thinks he's some hero.
Nate is my favorite kind of tortured hero. Raised by a bitter alcoholic father after his mother dies, Nate has lived an itinerate, shady life and believes he's not good enough for Sarah. Even when he almost dies saving a child's life, he knows Sarah deserves the kind of life he could never provide.
All the endearing characters from the first book return to support Sarah. With the help of Drake, Pearl's husband, and Storm, Sarah's brother, Nate redeems himself in the end.
This poignant Western romance has it all. Action-packed danger, steamy love scenes, a secondary romance, and a tender transformation from a Most Unsuitable Husband to a loving man who is suitable in every way to be a hero in a Caroline Clemmons novel.
Nate Bartholomew (Barton) deserved half the money from the sale of the bar but he can't exactly confront Sarah for it. For one thing, he's supposed to be dead. For another, if he wasn't dead, the law would be after him. Still, he vows that he'll get his money back somehow. How he feels about the children Sarah rescues, how he begins to feel about Sarah herself, has nothing to do with his plan. At least not at first. And by the time it starts to matter, by the time he realizes that he wants more of the beautiful young woman, it's too late. Besides, what respectable woman would have anything to do with a con-man and a gambler like himself? Nate knows that he's not husband material.
Author Caroline Clemmons continues her Kincaid series with a sensuous story of love, family, and trust set in 19th century Texas and St. Louis. Fans of the series will be happy to see Storm, Pearl, and the other members of the family again. Nate makes a fine tortured hero. Sarah grows as a character through the story. Always spunky, her love for the children she rescues and her growing affection for Nate allow her to assert herself, to learn to care less about proprieties and more about what is right.
THE MOST UNSUITABLE HUSBAND is an enjoyable treat.
