Jem Wheeler has always been a survivor. He just wants to make a fresh start in Colorado Springs after the loss of his wife. But then he happens upon a young mute woman being sold off to the highest bidder. He wasn’t looking for a mail-order bride. He wasn’t looking to rescue anyone either. But desperate circumstances can drive a good man to do things he hadn’t planned on doing…

When Jem steps into Annie’s life, she’s not expecting anyone to save her. Mute from birth, she’s just using all her wits to survive. All she’s ever really wanted is a family of her own. For someone to see her. To look at her long enough to hear the things she can’t say.

Can a rescued bride who can’t speak communicate her love for a grieving widower and his little girl? Will her love ever be returned?


My thoughts:

The Brides Series is one I have enjoyed since reading the first book, The Unexpected Bride.  Although each book in the series can be read as a stand-alone novel, reading them in order will provide a more complete reading experience.

The Bartered Bride is a compelling story! Lena Goldfinch does a wonderful job crafting characters readers will care about, and my heart ached for several in this story. Jem and Annie’s story is rife with drama and danger, but it is also a tender tale of romance.

I delighted in the unique characters, historical details, and engaging plot of this well-told story. I really enjoyed The Bartered Bride and recommend it to fans of historical romance!

I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an unbiased review. All thoughts expressed are my own.

    Thank you, Britney. This sounds like a great book! Romance books are some of my favorite. I love the banter that goes on between the man and woman as they are trying to get to know each other.

    Marriage of convenience books can be full of awkward moments, funny moments, then eventually sweet and romantic moments, I love the whole range of emotions characters go through in these situations!

    Marriage of convenience stories are among my favorite type! The best part for me is when you can see the characters start falling in love with each other. It starts out with the little things and then builds from there. I LOVE it 🙂
    Thank you for the chance to win!
