Frontier Engagement by Regina Scott
James Wallin’s family is depending on him to find a schoolteacher for their frontier town. Alexandrina Fosgrave seems to be exactly what he needs to help fulfill his father’s dream of building a new community. If only James could convince her to accept the position.
Alexandrina has traveled west to seek a fresh start, not to find a groom. But after she’s stranded in the wilderness with James, he offers her his hand in marriage to protect her reputation. Both are afraid to fall in love, but maybe an engagement of convenience could make them reconsider…
Frontier Engagement is a charming story! Regina Scott’s wonderful imagery and historical details paint a vivid picture and drew me into the story. While I especially enjoyed James Wallin and Alexandrina Fosgrave, I also enjoyed the extended Wallin family. I loved their genuine, heartfelt banter and camaraderie! In addition to the wonderful characters, I also loved the spiritual messages that were seamlessly woven through the story. A frontier adventure that leads to romance, James and Rina’s story is a delightful tale!
Although Frontier Engagement is the third book in the Frontier Bachelors series, it can be enjoyed as a stand-alone story. I have not read the first two books in this series, but I plan to remedy that soon. I am eager to revisit the Wallin family and Wallin Landing!
I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an unbiased review. I appreciate the opportunity to read this story and share my thoughts.
Regina Scott started writing novels in the third grade. Thankfully for literature as we know it, she didn’t actually sell her first novel until she’d learned a bit more about writing. After numerous short stories and articles in magazines and trade journals, and a good kick in the backside from her husband, she got serious about writing. Since then, she’s had published more than two dozen clean historical romances for adults and young adults. Her traditional romances have earned praised from reviewers and readers alike. Booklist calls her work “quietly compelling” and “impeccably written.” Huntress Reviews says, “Regina Scott delivers,” and “I will always buy a book with Regina Scott’s name on it.”
She makes her home in the Puget Sound area of Washington State with her beloved husband and a hyperactive Irish terrier named Fergus. Find her online at her website, the blog she shares with author Marissa Doyle, on Facebook, and on Goodreads.
