"A don't-miss treat!" -- Rendezvous
ALMOST A BRIDE
Wyoming Wildflowers -- Book 1 -- Indian Paintbrush

Dave Currick was everything Matty Brennan wanted for as along as she could remember. Right up until he broke her heart six years ago. Now that she's returned to Wyoming for good, what she wants more than anything is to save her family's ranch. Even if that means swallowing her pride and asking Dave to marry her.

Matty's up to something - Dave knows that much. Just as he knows that Matty needs help, so of course he'll provide it, just as he has all her life. Doing what's best for Matty is second nature. Even when it comes to marrying her in name only. Although he can't resist one hot-blooded kiss after the I-dos.

Maybe - just maybe - his Matty will become more to him than Almost a Bride.

Wildflowers have to be strong and resilient to bloom amid the rugged beauty of Wyoming - and so do the women.

4.0 out of 5 stars wyoming wildflowers 6 Nov 2004
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
once theyd loved under the wild wyoming sky. Then Dave Currick ended their affair and broke Matty Brennans heart. Matty had vowed Dave would rue the day he'd let her go. But now, desperate to save her familys ranch, she swallowed her pride and asked him to marry her! In name only of course...Daves quick agreement stunned her. But it was the searing, intimate wedding kiss that warned her Dave might have an agenda of his own. To protect her vulnerable heart, she had to find out why he'd left her-and why he had married her now!

Awwww, what a nice book. 2 people have been in love since they were kids, they separate and come back together six years later. I like the characters and also the humor thrown between the main leads. It's one of those books that make you smile at the end!

4.0 out of 5 stars Almost a Bride 27 Jun 2012
By Jane
Format:Kindle Edition
Awww, what a lovely book. Dave and Matty have known each other since being kids. They started out as friends and it progressed into more. After pressure from his parents and Matty's Gran he broke off their relationship even though he knew he wanted to spend the rest of his life with her. Matty ran away and 6 years later returned to live after her Great Uncle died to run the family ranch, which had been her dream.

4.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Beach Read 2 Sep 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It's always refreshing to get a really nice reader after a disastrous one - and this is exactly what I got with this sweet little contemporary love story.

Matty and Dave, childhood sweethearts that everybody said would end up together, the only thing is it took six whole years of growing up before their happy ending.

The Author had an easy and flowing style, so much so, that I completely forgot the fact that it was peppered with North American English.

With no mistakes, or bug bears, it was a nice entertaining 4 star read.

It would be a perfect beach read, or something to while away a journey if contemporary romance is your thing.

In case you're interested the full Blogost is #371 September 2013 on my Blog.

2.0 out of 5 stars sorry I didn't like it 9 Oct 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I thought the plot was so thin it was ridiculous...she thought he was a womaniser who had callously broken her heart 6 years previously...now she was back to try and save the family ranch..she needed his address so she could get a grant..So although she was supposed to thoroughly dislike him she told him she needed to marry him immediately, wouldn't explain why, but told him it was a business arangement only...no sex but he wasn't allowed to go with other women and she would divorce him after two years ...oh and his 'reward' for all this was he could mate his horse with her horse and have the first living offspring from it!!!....I found her self centred and stroppy and he weak and led by the nose...and she didn't even need the grant cos we discovered she had over 150,000 in the bank and shares in a business....the rest of the characters in the book were so wishy washy I don't know why they were written into the 'plot' at all.

This was an OK freebie for me. The H & h were nice. The contrived 'misunderstanding' did my head in a bit near the end but not enough to make me dislike the story.

5.0 out of 5 stars When love eventually blossoms 12 Aug 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
When Marty asks Dave to marry her he is surprised not only because they split six years ago but because they are not currently in a relationship. So what's the catch? The truth will out eventually. A marriage of convenience which ends up one sided because although it's at her convenience it's not for him because he is in love with her. Nicely told story. Loving the Wyoming landscape. Love by flowers Indian paintbrush this time xx
