"Sheriff's Department! Raise your hands above your head and don't move."
She’s a runaway bride who left her two-timing fiance at the altar. He’s a county sheriff determined to keep the peace in his country and leave city girls alone after his own fiance left him for the bright lights of the city. Neither of them planned on running straight into each other... over a burning wedding dress.
Ellie and Lucas planned on never trusting their hearts to love again. When danger follows her from the city, the sheriff must do his duty to protect her. However, it isn’t long before he discovers the real danger may be to his heart. Ellie just might teach him that even a city girl can be a country girl at heart.
Y’all know I’m a sucker for a good sweet, small town romance. It should come as no surprise that I jumped at the chance to read and review a title called His Country Bride. 😉 I’m glad I did, too. It was a short and (yes) sweet, easy read and it introduced me to a new author. I enjoyed this one!
His Country Bride hooked me right from the very first page. I mean, how could it not with a half naked woman burning her wedding dress being found by the local cop? Come on now? This is totally up my alley. (Or, country road, as the case may be here.) As the story continued, I got more invested in Lucas and Ellie and their story. I liked the push and pull between them and the drama created by it. The attraction was real, but Lucas’ sense of duty and past definitely got in the way. So, too, did Ellie’s fears that she was just a job for him. I liked their chemistry and, of course, the kissing. 🙂 Add to it all the underlying suspenseful storyline surrounding the man watching her property and it became an unputdownable read.
If you’re like me and you like to indulge in a good small town romance that’s low on the steam and big on the sweet, you should definitely give this one a try. I really liked the setting and Ellie’s spunk. Lucas was super swoony, even when he frustrated me a little. The two of them were a great fit and I enjoyed watching them finally realize it.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
