Sometimes Love is Found in the Most Unexpected Places!

Love isn't always a fairy tale, and it doesn't always go as planned. Sometimes the best stories, though, are the ones that are the most unexpected. Join Karen Witemeyer, Mary Connealy, Regina Jennings, and Melissa Jagears for novellas that celebrate the power of love to triumph . . . even when circumstances go awry!

The Husband Maneuver
When ranch foreman Daniel Barrett seems ready to leave her life forever, Marietta Hawkins decides to grab the reins on their relationship. But to have any hope of maneuvering him into a proposal, she has to act fast or risk losing him completely.

Her Dearly UnintendedJosiah Huckabee just wanted to make sure Katie Ellen Watson was safe, but when the only bridge to her farm is washed out, the two find themselves alone. Alone, that is, until a menacing stranger appears. Maybe by pretending to be newlyweds, they'll save their reputations--but can pretending to be in love turn into the real thing?

Runaway BrideHired to help Carrie Halsey escape from a dangerous man intent on making her his wife, Big John Conroy never expected the job to interrupt his solitary Texas Ranger life. But now that he's promised to keep Carrie safe, he discovers he may just want to make a few more promises.

Engaging the CompetitionHarrison Gray and tomboy Charlotte Andrews have been rivals for years. With Charlotte intended for someone else, it seems they'll never settle their differences until an accident changes things completely. When Charlotte breaks Harrison's glasses--without which he's nearly blind--she must help with his teaching position, and working together forces these former adversaries to reconsider everything.

"With This Ring?" is such a great collection of novella's!   Each has it's own unique twists and turns to it as well as a beautiful and somewhat expected ending.  Expected because of the title, but the events leading up to the inevitable result, was anything but expected!  

While three out of the four of these start out very similar, they are anything but that!  The authors may have had similar ideas, but each one's talents reveal their individual creativity. 

Mary Connealy's was a pleasure to read because she brought in former characters from previous books.  Unfortunately, I haven't been able to read all of her previous books, so it was a little confusing at times just who everyone was.  (from the Kincaid Bride series)

I enjoyed each of these novella's and will for sure read them again!  I do believe that Melissa Jagears story was simply beautiful.  Charlotte loved Harrison even if he was practically blind.  That is true love.  Loving others strengths and imperfections. 

A couple of these authors I have never read before, but I'm glad that I was able to!  Each of these authors are very talented in their writing!  I hope that they do another novella collection together!  

This is a romantic western fiction book, but I recommend it to anyone who enjoys reading contemporary Christian romance.
