The Bartered Bride

This book is a collection of novellas about arranged marriages, marriages of convenience, or marriages that have a rough and rocky start.

Each story is a well-written, sweet story of romance after the wedding.

The stories are:
Joie de Vivre by Lynette Sowell
Button String Bride by Cathy Marie Hake
The Wedding Wagon by Cathy Marie Hake
From Halter to Altar by Cathy Marie Hake
From Carriage to Marriage by Janelle Burnham Schneider
From Pride to Bride by JoAnn A Grote
From Alarming to Charming by Pamela Kaye Tracy
A Vow Unbroken by Amy Rognlie
Finishing Touches by Kelly Eileen Hake

Some of these stories have been previously published and I have read them before, and still enjoyed them on the re-read. Cathy Marie and Kelly Eileen Hake are mother and daughter authors whose work I absolutely adore. They have never disappointed and don't disappoint now.

There will always be stories a reader will enjoy more than others or less than others, but all of these stories will touch the reader in some way. This book is excellent for a rainy day escape with a blanket and a cup of tea.

Five stars, two thumbs up, and a cozy reading nook.
