LOVED THIS BOOK i thought this was a good ending to the trilogy, Lucy and the Captain were great together, took some time for them to get really really physical but understandable if you meet your husband once in 5 years but worth the chemistry in the end. The other characters are just fun to read and of course the humor is always good the 3 books within the series was my first JODI THOMAS read and won't be my last..
Loved this book which is the third book of a series. The characters are wonderfully developed. The story captured my interest immediately and I just wanted to do nothing but read until I was finished. Each book in the series stands alone but if possible read all 4 books as characters from each book are common throughout.
4 stars. The hero's father buys the heroine in a wife lottery and marries her to the hero (who is off in the army) by proxy. After a brief, unhappy first encounter several years after the 'wedding,' the protagonists don't see each other again until he is granted 30 days leave and ordered to go protect his wife from an outlaw who's probably gunning for her. Despite the short timespan, their growing love for each other seems believable. The hero is tender, the heroine is likable; the book seems balanced between plot and love story. All in all a great read.
