Mail Order Bride by Barbara McMahon. This is Julianne Dawson and Blake Reynolds’ story.
Blake needs to be married and have a baby in the next year in order to inherit the family ranch. Blake and Julianne had known each other when they were younger. Julianne agrees to marry Blake. Will Julianne go through with this when she discovers the details of this agreement?
Blake, Julianne, and supporting characters all seem to have this desire to be loved and have the comfort and security of being part of a family. They just have a hard time letting their guards down.
I enjoyed the banter between the characters, the hot chemistry between Blake and Julianne, the side story of Shell (Blake’s son) and Loni’s story, and some surprising twists. I thoroughly enjoyed this sweet, emotional, and heartwarming romance. The story leaves you with a warm and happy heart.
