With This Ring? By: Karen Witemeyer, Mary Connealy, Regina Jennings & Milissa Jagears

Back of the Book

Humorous Historical Romance Novella
Collection Offers Love and Laughs

Four top historical romance novelists team up in this new collection to offer stories of love and romance with a twist of humor. In Karen Witemeyer's "The Husband Maneuver," Marietta Hawkins decides to grab the reins when the ranch foreman she loves seems to be leaving forever. Regina Jennings offers "Her Dearly Unintended," where friends stranded by a rising river pretend to be newlyweds when a dangerous stranger arrives. 

Mary Connealy's "Runaway Bride" finds a Texas ranger getting more than he expected when he rescues a young woman fleeing a dangerous arranged marriage. And Melissa Jagears' "Engaging the Competition" finds a young woman forced to assist the man she's often sparred with after an accident leaves him helpless. Each tale is a fun blend of history and romance that will delight readers.

My Thoughts

This book is a must read, four wonderful short stories written by great historical fiction authors.  Even if historical fiction is not your usual genre, you will enjoy this book, and maybe find a new author to read.  Each story is clean, romantic and entertaining.  "The Husband Maneuver" has a unique writing style that is fresh and compliments the story.  "Her Dearly Unintended" has parts that I had to read twice because I enjoyed them so much.  "Runaway Bride" is wonderfully sweet and fast paced.  "Engaging the Competition" is a perfect example of misunderstood love.  Now I need to go read it again.

I was given this book free from Bethany House Publishing for my honest review.
