4 stars
4 stars – It was really good

Abandoned by her husband, Elisabeth Franklin is struggling to keep up with her 60 acre farm. Desperate, she agrees to marry a prisoner, Jordan Yancy, who will help her on the farm in exchange for his freedom. What she doesn’t expect is to feel passion and desire for the prisoner. 

This was a quick and fun read. I loved arranged marriage historicals and this one was perfect. Elisabeth doesn’t expect to be attracted to her new husband or for him to show her the pleasures of the bedchamber. Their romance was quick and steamy and I loved it. I really liked Elisabeth. She was independent, spunky, and wasn’t afraid to speak her feelings. With Jordan she can finally be her true self and embrace what it means to be a woman. 

Jordan was a former Marshall who was imprisoned for a crime he didn’t commit. He is instantly attracted to his new wife and plans on showing her how a real man treats his wife. You can feel the sparks between these two from the beginning and I couldn’t get enough of them. My only complaint with this book was that it wasn’t long enough. 

Overall, I loved this book and plan on reading more of Beverly Jenkins books soon.
