About The Author:
Noelle Marchand's love of literature began as a
child when she would spend hours reading beneath
the covers long after she was supposed to be asleep.
Over the years, God began prompting her to write
by placing ideas for stories in her head. Eventually,
those stories became like “fire shut up in her
bones” leading her to complete her first novel
by her sixteenth birthday.
Though life as a college student keeps her busy,
God continues to use her talent for writing as a
way to deepen her spiritual life and draw her
closer to Him.
This caught my eye when I was cruising Amazon in the Christian Romance section. It looked good so I clicked on it. I read the description and I was like yeah, I'm buying this book!
I love the either marriage of convenience or just married by accident stories they always crack me up!
I loved Kate's character. She's so strong and she's willing to do anything for her family. Even stay married to Nathan knowing he can help with the farm. Even with all the tragedies she's had in her life she kept her faith through it all. She lost her parents, and then she was fooled by a guy thinking he liked her when in truth all he wanted was her inheritance. And when he found out she didn't have any he left her. So she was left to take care of the farm her parents had. While taking care of her little siblings Sean and Ellie.
Until she finds out her siblings order her a mail order groom! They sent out several letters to different guys but didn't like anyone of them except Nathan Rutledge. So imagine Kate's surprise when she finds Nathan at her door step saying their married! Then when she says they need to get an annulment the judge is out of town and won't be back for three months or more. So they decide to stay married till the judge comes back. Nathan helps with the work on the farm and during the three months' time they fall in love with each other!
