His first mistake was marrying her.His second was falling in love.

Chase McKnight will do anything to secure his family's ranch—but marriage to a complete stranger? That's a hard pill to swallow. Yet the will is clear: Chase needs a wife by his side if he wants to keep his home, so he meets his veiled lady at the courthouse steps and reluctantly says "I do."

Too bad he married the wrong bride.

When Boston runaway Emily Fields agreed to marry a Texas stranger to escape her family's scandal, she wasn't prepared to get hitched to the wrong cowboy! Stuck in a secret compromise, she has one year to learn the ways of the ranch and convince Chase's family they're happily married. But when the lie becomes true, the past catches up to them and they must save the love they never expected...

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Sourcebooks, NetGalley and was under no obligation to post a review, positive or negative.
My Thoughts
Yeehaw! This novel was awesome! It’s been sometime since I read a Margaret Brownley novel and boy, let me tell ya. I’m so glad I grabbed this one up. It was like finding my way home again. From start to finish, I was chuckling up a storm and falling in love with Chase and Emily.
I love a great mail order bride style story and this fits that bill perfectly. I loved the interaction that Emily had with Chase. Watching them together, and seeing the wit and charm that Brownley used for them was a breath of fresh air for me. Their characters were wonderfully chiseled and really made a home in my soul to stay.
The details to history that Brownley used was awesome. I truly felt like I was transported back in time to Haywire, Texas and all the sights and sounds came to life for me. The style of dresses, the horses, all of it jumped from the pages and kept me hooked.
Bronwley is a truly amazing author! Her writing style never ceases to leave me in awe. I loved the way she made the sparks sizzle between the characters, creating that long, slow burn of attraction and leaving me antsy to see what happens. This is book 2 in the Haywire Brides series but I wasn’t overly confused so it’s easily a stand alone read. Definitely worthy of 4 stars and two thumbs! Can’t wait to read book 1 and any future additions to the series.
