Kentucky Bride by Hannah Howell
Langleyville, Pennsylvania & Kentucky 1794
Clover Sherwood never expected to be ostracized from Pennsylvania society, but when her father dies that is exactly what happens. Now Clover has not only been ostracized but her fiancée has left her and she faces trying to provide for her mother and two younger brothers. Unless she can come up with a plan they are going to be homeless in a short while. Clover just might have an idea that will work no matter how outrages it seems.
Ballard MacGregor is moving up in the world and now has the ability to be able to provide for a wife. He is now ready to marry and would like to find a woman that can teach him all the fine manners he feels he lacks and needs to learn, but she is also going to have to be willing to move to the wilderness known as Kentucky. What Ballard never expected was to meet Clover and have her propose to him. Ballard knows he is going to accept because Clover has the fine manners he is looking for and the instant attraction between them helps too.
First they are going to have to clear away some trouble that is headed their way. It seems not everyone is happy with their marriage. Their enemies will try anything to keep them apart and make sure that their marriage is of short duration. First Ballard and Clover are going to have to figure out who their enemies are and which way they are going to be coming at them. If they are not careful they might not live long enough to see if their promising future will give them the chance to find the love they want from each other.
This story delivers the promise of love and fun that you always get with this author. The story moves quickly and keeps you guessing as to what will happen next while being very entertaining with the wit and humor that comes through. This is one that is very hard to put down once you start reading it and keeps you mesmerized until the very last page.
I give this one a bouquet of roses, which means this book is special.
