Book Description: Genieva Bankmans had willfully agreed to the arrangement. She had given her word and she would not dishonor it. But when she saw, for the first time, the man whose advertisement she had answered…she was desperately intimidated. The handsome and commanding Brevan McLean was not what she had expected. He was not the sort of man she had reconciled herself to marrying.
This man, this stranger whose name Genieva now bore, was strong-willed, quick-tempered and expectant of much from his new wife. Brevan McLean did not deny he had married her for very practical reasons only. He merely wanted any woman whose hard work would provide him assistance with the brutal demands of farm life.
But Genieva would learn there were far darker things, grave secrets held unspoken by Brevan McLean concerning his family and his land. Genieva Bankmans McLean was to find herself in the midst of treachery, violence and villainy with her estranged husband deeply entangled in it.
My Review: This is the first Marcia book I read and of course, that makes it one of my favorites.
I love the marriage of convenience plot. The relationship the siblings
has is great and I love how accepting they all are of Genieva. Even
though this shows a flaw, I love Genieva's little jealous streaks that
cause her to rant and throw a fit. I can totally picture the pond, the orchards, the
farm. I love how Marcia paints a picture in my mind with her words.
Marcia has tainted my opinion of a book hero--in a good way, of course!! These men are manly men who are perfectly perfect for their lady--flaws and all. Brevan is no different. He's hardworking, almost to a fault; he's tough, yet tender; he's very protective of those he cares about.
Content: some language and a little violence; kissing--uh huh--it's all about the kissing in Marcia's books.
