Bride by Necessity by Linda S. Glaz
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
When Payton Whittard’s parents are killed in a carriage accident, she’s lost all the family she knows. When their cottage is burned to the ground. She’s lost everything. Jonathon Lambrick, as master of Kent Park, feels responsible for his long-time tenant’s daughter. He’s in for a shock when the girl he assumes to be a youngster is actually a young woman. A beautiful young woman. When a never-before-seen uncle with dubious intentions shows up to claim her, Jonathon decides the only way to protect her is to marry her.
Set in the mid-19th century England, this story reads a bit predictably. It’s a good beach-type read, or for a cozy night with fuzzy slippers and a cup of hot chocolate.
