Groom by Agreement

A real home–it’s what Vienna Howe dearly wants for her young daughter. Yet the ramshackle property she just inherited hardly qualifies. She can’t afford the repairs–until foreman West McCall suggests they start a dude ranch together. For propriety’s sake, they’ll need a marriage in name only…a practical solution for two wary hearts.

Years ago, West convinced Vienna to marry a man of means, never realizing how cruel her husband could be. Guilt-ridden, he intends to secure the lovely widow’s future. But despite his reluctance to get close to anyone, this union might do more than fix Vienna’s ranch. It could open the door to a warm, loving future…

What a cute story & such a sweet romance! I’m a sucker for marriage-of-convenience stories – and cowboy stories – so A Cowboy of Convenience was right up my alley!

We first meet West McCall and Vienna Howe in The Rancher’s Temporary Engagement, and their stories – especially Vienna’s captured my attention then even in the smaller secondary roles they played. So I was thrilled to find out that these two are the main characters in A Cowboy of Convenience – a couple of chronological years down the road from when the first story ended.

I love how Vienna has really come into her own and embraced her inner strength even more since we last saw her – and her adorable little daughter Hattie! Oh goodness, she’s a cutie, stealing nearly every scene she’s in. West is the perfect blend of hero and friend – watching out for Vienna and Hattie but also giving Vienna room to save the day on her own a couple of times. As their tender friendship slowly grows into something deeper, be prepared to hold your breath during several almost-kisses and meaningful gazes.

Bottom Line: If you love cowboys, marriages-of-convenience, friends-to-more and adorable little girls, then A Cowboy of Convenience should be a must-read for you! Henrie once again creates a story that is equal parts endearing and swoonworthy – with characters who quickly feel like friends. I’m sad to see this imprint closing, but i hope Henrie will bring us back to Sheridan at some point anyway – at least once more!

    Thank you for being part of the book tour for “A Cowboy of Convenience” by Stacy Henrie. Adore this cover and would love the opportunity to read the book.

  2. Thanks for reading and reviewing the book! So glad you enjoyed it. Hattie was such a fun character to write. And yes, there is still one more book in the series that will release in February! Alec from the this book is the hero of that one. 😉 Harlequin agreed to honor all Love Inspired Historical contracts that extended beyond this month, so there are three of us authors who have books that will release in February.
