Nanee's Review of An Unwilling Husband by Tera Shanley


Expected publication: May 5th 2014 by Lyrical Press 

Book Description:

For adventurous Margaret Flemming, arrived from Boston to be with her father, the Old West town of her childhood is a far cry from the drawing rooms and balls of the high society life she’s used to. Her fancy gowns and proper manners have no place in the dusty, cruel land inhabited by Indians and rough cowboys. And her fiercely independent streak constantly gets her in trouble. When tragedy strikes, there’s only one person she can turn to--her childhood friend, Garret Shaw--but he’s disgusted with her Society ways.

With his ranch under attack from the land-grabbing Jennings, the last thing Garret needs is to be saddled with a high-falutin’ lady. Even if she is his friend’s daughter and her kind ways tug at his hardened heart. Duty to her father forces them to wed, but he knows sure as anything, when the chance comes along, she’ll go back to Boston. No matter how much he wants her, loving her is not a risk he can take.

Will Maggie choose a life of luxury and ease over struggle and hardship with an ill-mannered cowboy? Only her heart can answer.

Nanee's Review:

Wow..loved this story. Tera Shanley brings you into this raw ranch life world with amazing characters and heart felt story and doesn't let you go. I couldn't stop reading this story. Garrett is a rough around the edges tough as nails rancher who has been hurt more times emotionally and physically that he just doesn't care anymore. Margaret or Maggie as she goes by now loved Garrett all her life and when she had to leave her old life behind and miss him and the only man she ever considered her father she was devastated and swore to go back "home" where she belongs, Boston high society was not for her. I loved that she got to spend time with Roy and got to wear down her unwilling husband. I loved Cookie and Lenny, especially Lenny, she's amazing and beautiful and just perfect for Maggie to have as a friend. I was proud of Maggie throughout the story she learned a lot and is as stubborn as a mule (which we all love about her). And Garrett I just wanted to hug, they both have been through hell and back and you'll love how the story brings you into their lives and shares many memories both happy and sad. Love this story. Want more historical romances from Tera she nailed this one. 5 huge stars
