WHAT A BRIDE WANTS by Kelly Hunter - Blurb
What a bride wants…
Ella Grace Emerson adores her father, but he keeps trying to marry her off to every eligible rancher in Montana. When he puts an ad in the paper on her behalf – for a docile house-husband – Ella retaliates with one of her own, pinned to the noticeboard of the local saloon. No husband required, housebroken or otherwise. What she wants is the perfect lover.
What a bride needs…
Newcomer Cam Sawyer is perfectly willing to tear up the sheets with Ella and be her partner in chaos. She wants a bad boy and he’s had experience aplenty. But what she really needs is a strong and loving partner, and until Sawyer stops running from his past he can never be that.
Sawyer’s the one Ella wants. But can he be the man she needs?
Review by Marlene Engel
Samuel T. Emerson is anxious to see his daughter settle down and have children. So much so, that he took it upon himself to place an ad in the local paper with a title that read … DOCILE HOUSEHUSBAND WANTED. So, you can imagine the shock his daughter felt when she walked into the local pub and everyone’s eyes were on her. Unaware of the ad, and the fact that it was tacked up on the bulletin board there, Ella was curious as to all of the stares. When the waitress informed her of the ad, instead of getting mad or embarrassed, Ella decides to write up a post of her own with the title … PERFECT LOVER WANTED and place it next to her father’s ad on the bulletin board.
All of the attention of the ad and the post that Ella made, brought out the curiosity of Sawyer, the hot Australian bartender who has caught the eye of many the women in Marietta. So when Ella and Sawyer start spending time, it doesn’t take long for the people of Marietta to talk. What is Ella, daughter of Samuel T. Emerson of Emerson Holding, doing with Sawyer, a man who recently came into town and nobody really knows anything about? Is he after her money? Where’s he from? And why is he living in one of the bunkhouses that Ella’s father owns?
I can’t even begin to express how much I loved reading this story. Ella’s personality and spunk was contagious and Sawyer’s sexiness was hard to resist. There was no doubt a spark between the two. I recommend this book to anyone looking for a great story, amazing characters and that’s located in a cozy town. A must read for all!
Accidentally educated in the sciences, Kelly Hunter didn't think to start writing romances until she was surrounded by the jungles of Malaysia for a year and didn't have anything to read. Eventually she decided that writing romance suited her far better than throwing sterile screw-worm flies out of airplane windows, and changed careers.
Kelly now lives in Australia, surrounded by lush farmland and family, 2 dogs, 3 miniature cows, a miniature pig, a 3-legged cat and a small flock of curious chickens. There are still flies, but their maggots don’t feed on flesh. Bargain.
