Blurb (from Amazon):
Desperate to keep the ranch where three of her children and a husband lie buried, Annie Gephart must marry or sell. Which of the few bachelors in town would consider a surprise proposal to wed a plain widow with a rebellious daughter, a spirited boy, and unpaid taxes—without laughing in her face?
Jacob Hendrix has never fully let go of his ranching dreams despite ending up as a small Wyoming town’s marshal. The job wouldn’t be so bad, except he’s more errand boy than lawman. When Annie proposes marriage without a single coquettish bat of an eyelash, can he commit himself to a woman he hardly knows for a choice piece of property he’d be an idiot to pass up?
But taxes aren’t all that threaten Annie and Jacob’s plans. Cattle rustlers, crumbling friendships, and wayward children make this marriage of convenience anything but. When they lose what they’ve sacrificed everything to save, will the love of a stranger be enough?
Romancing the Bride is the first book in the Frontier Vows Series by award-winning Christian romance author Melissa Jagears. If you like heartwarming marriage-of-convenience stories, you’ll love this sweet romance filled with endearing characters.

Romancing the Bride starts off the exciting new series by Melissa Jagears, Frontier Vows. I instantly fell in love with the main character, Annie. She has been through so much heartache. I loved it when Jacob entered the scenes. Such sweetness.
Romancing the Bride gets a well deserved five plus stars from me. I would give it one hundred if I could. I highly, highly recommend it. Great job, Melissa! I look forward to book two from the Frontier Vows series.
I received this book from the author. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.
