Wildflower Bride by Mary Connealy
I’m a big fan of Mary Connealy. Her books never disappoint! This one is really great, as always.
We met the hero, Wade, in Montana Rose, where he was actually the bad guy. Then in The Husband Tree, we started to really love him. That’s also when we met the heroine, Abby/Glowing Sun. Wade rescued her from some bad men who had kidnapped her and then he promptly falls in love with her. But she’s “engaged” to the Flathead Indian chief’s son. Still, Wade holds out hope that she will one day want him and need him to rescue her again.
And that day comes in Wildflower Bride! Abby’s whole village is wiped out and Wade gets his chance to take care of her again. However, I lost count on how many times she pulls her knife on him! It’s so comical to see this half-wild woman raised by Indians dealing with falling in love with Wade by constantly pulling her knife on him. I also loved how feisty and brave and capable she is. She actually always ends up saving herself before Wade gets a chance to. But he keeps on thinking that if he hangs around long enough, she’ll actually need him!
Mary Connealy is the queen of comical situations in romance. I just loved this latest one. Very sweet and romantic, too.
Believe it or not, Mary has ANOTHER new book. It's called Doctor in Petticoats. I am a little behind on my reading, but I should have a review of it soon!
