"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."
