The first book in by Mary Jo Putney. Justin has just become the Duke after his brother's death and must marry for money. Having remembered meeting Sarah he arranges to marry her. The two struggle to overcome the difficulties of marriage and love.
The second book is by Kristin James. Amy went out one night alone with Charles Whittaker. Though nothing happened, thanks to Jesse, a hand who works on her father's ranch, Amy's reputation is ruined. Jesse, who has loved her ever since she and her father saved him, offers to marry her. The two try to figure out a way to get the other to love them.
The third book is by Julie Tetel. Mistakenly taken from her bed one night Anne Chisolm must marry Alexander Sutherland in handfast for one year and a day to save there reputation and honor.
I enjoyed all three books, though I wish "The Handfast" characters could have more depth and motivation. Fans of Mary Jo Putney will notice that "The Wedding of the Century" is different from her other books but still well written. I loved "Jesse's Wife." The characters were so enjoyable as well as funny.

This books includes three short stories about arranged marriages when the bride would rather not get married. However, in the end they all end up happy as any romance novel should.

I really loved the 2nd story in this book, "Jesse's Wife" It is a historical, as all 3 stories are.

Amy McAlister made one mistake, and would now pay for it the rest of her life. She married one of her father's ranch hands to save her reputation, and finds love.
