Pretending to Wed is the second novel in the Frontier Vows series from Melissa Jagears. It is a marriage of convenience story, which is one of my favorite troupes. And although marrying as strictly business partners is common, Nolan and Corinne take it to a whole new level, drawing up a contract and splitting profits.
I loved the respect Nolan and Corinne had for each other from the beginning. Nolan was surprising in how he supported his new wife in everything from working chores on the ranch to tinkering with inventions. His attention to her happiness was endearing and had me cheering for him instantly.
I also loved how business savvy Corinne was, and how creative she could be with her inventions--while still being practical. Sometimes her unwillingness to communicate with Nolan and her focus on increasing profits for their ranch was frustrating, but after learning more about her past, it was obvious she just wanted to be helpful and wanted.
For me, all the conversations about Corinne’s experience in the bedroom (in her past and otherwise) was a bit distracting. I understand it is a realistic problem, but I felt like the discussions didn’t add much to the plot. And the conflict that resulted could have been explained by other heartbreaks in Corinne’s history. Also, I felt like it was highly unlikely for Nolan’s best friend’s wife to talk to him about it openly when they were alone. It all just felt out of place for me.
Still, I enjoyed reading Nolan and Corinne’s story and watching their mutual respect deepen into something more.
Pretending to Wed is a sweet love story and one marriage of convenience fans will enjoy.
I was given a copy of this book by the publisher with no expectation of a positive review. All opinions are my own. ( )

This is a very good historical western romance. I loved the romance and this made me laugh. I loved that Corrine was an inventor and Nolan had the handicap. Both of these characters had handicaps to overcome before they could be truly happy. Corrine also had a medical problem with her hands that she had to overcome. I loved the reference to the dime novels also. I received a copy of this book from Celebratelit for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will. ( )

Two stubborn hearts determined never to marry find themselves making the business deal of a lifetime when they agree to a marriage of convenience.

Engaging, with strong protagonists that you can't help but cheer for throughout. I loved Corinne's innovative spirit, and her passion for creating things to improve the lives of herself and others. I admired her strong work ethic, and related to how hard it is to be the one asking for help. I loved how her situation gave her the opportunity to befriend other women, as there are so many terrific supporting characters many of whom are familiar faces from the previous book in the series.

Nolan is one of my favorite heroes, he is noble, and he can match Corinne in stubbornness. They have terrific chemistry, I loved how he stood up for her, and was determined to always stand by her and support her in her interests.

Overall, this was a fantastic story, the characters blew me away, there was terrific romantic tension and relationship building. I loved the fantastic friends that they both had, as well as how Corinne and Nolan's relationship grew throughout the book, as they came to respect each other. Engaging and well written, I had a hard time putting it down. I went into this book having not already read the first book in the series, and I had no problem just jumping in, but I did notice that if you haven't read the first book yet, then there are some spoilers, but it didn't detract from me wanting to read Annie and Jacob's story--like right now. Highly enjoyable read, that handles delicate topics well with faith centered answers, and a satisfying ending. Definitely recommend!

*This book does talk tactfully and honestly about the more physical side of marriage, so maybe wouldn't recommend for younger readers.

I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own. ( )

Who doesn’t love a good marriage of convenience story? Melissa Jagears takes the trope to a new and delightful level in Pretending to Wed.

With characters that come to life on the page, a plot that is engaging, and deep themes, this book was hard to set down to do anything related to real life. Corinne and Nolan make an agreement to marry but not develop feelings for each other. What could possibly go wrong?

Both our hero and heroine have some baggage they carry into their marriage which makes misunderstandings relevant and believable. From the cover to the first lines of the book, moments of humor sprinkled in with the more challenging moments mean readers are in for quite the emotional rollercoaster ride.

Disclosure statement: I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book and was not required to write a positive review. All opinions are my own. ( )

Pretend to Wed by Melissa Jagears is book two in the Frontier Vow series. This is also a great stand alone story.
Nolan's father has recently past away and specifies in his will that if Nolan does not marry within a short time the ranch will pass to his nephew instead. Nolan has no desire to marry and struggles with how to keep his home. He has worked along side his father to build the ranch, while his cousin does visit the ranch he has never worked it.
Corinne is the towns laundress. She is suffering greatly physically daily work and the work may cause irreversible damage to her hands. She has had two terrible relationships with men that has made her decide to never have another. A marriage in name only is the best solution for her and Nolan has offered a great business deal for her.
This is a nice story to read to just get lost in. It is well written with strong characters. There are many good messages given in this story. The ones that stand out to me are that Nolan's father probably made his will the way he did to protect Nolan, not to take it away from him. With marrying, Nolan will have a helpmate for his physical needs as well as a companion. The other is when a friend helps Corinne see that God arranged marriage for both spouses to enjoy, not just men. The parts in the story I enjoyed the most were those of Corinne's inventions and that Nolan wanted her to be the one receiving credit for them, even if they were looked down on because they were woman made.
I received a copy of this e-book from Celebrate Lit, this is my honest review. ( )
