Carolyn Davidson Americana stories are meaningful, morally rich and surprisingly sensous-and they almost alwaays feature tall, dark and handsome heroes. Continuing in that vein is the Bachelor Tax, and endearing marriage of convenience story about a least likely to marry "bad boy" rancher who tries to avoid a local bachelor tax by proposing to the one woman he's sure will say no--the prim preacher's daughter. Also throws in two mistreated kids to make a really good read. I enjoyed it.
This was a really good book that kept me up turning the pages most of the night. I think it took me 2 days to read, because I couldn't put it down. It's interesting to see what a town does when they decide bachelor's must pay a tax of ask a woman to marry them, specially in a town with few available females. It is set in the old west during the late 1800's, and the main female is a headstrong woman. If you like Carolyn Davidson books, you will enjoy this one/
