Jonah's Bride - Originally published in 1999 by Kensington Press under the name Jill Henry. Re-issued as an e-book 2011 under Jillian Hart Tessa Bradford was looked down upon as the sharped tongue town spinster. After her parents has died she went to live with her Grandfather's family. She was treated worse than a slave. Tessa had dreams of love and family but kept them hidden as she feared they would never come true. One night when she snuck out to ice skate she ran into Major Jonah Hunter in the woods. He had been a mean child, pulling her braids in school and getting into mischief. Now he was a handsome man, he rescued her that night from two wolves that would have attacked her. Later that night he came to get her to help with his father. As the town healer she needed to go help. Jonah has returned home after being gone for ten years. He had joined the army to become a man his father would be proud of. He lost himself the first time he had to kill. Now his father has asked him to marry so as the eldest son he could inherit the land and provide heirs. His father was on his death bed so he promised. Colonel Samuel Hunter had bragged much about his son, the Major, the hero. All the young chits in town and their mother has plans for him. He knew what he saw in their eyes, the greed that his step-mother had. Marry into the wealthy hunter family. He told his brothers, Thomas & Andy, he would decide on his wife the woman who offered to help with their Father. Many of the woman brought food but none offered to help, none but Tessa. Jonah proposed to Tessa and she almost let her heart believe in her long lost dreams but she refused him. Her grandfather sold her to a neighbor for marriage. A man with twelve children and known as a wife abuser. Money and a cow had exchanged hands. Knowing she could have a man like Jonah, one she hated at first but as she watched the love in which he took care of his father, her heart changed towards him. Jonah had made up his mind though and in the end, they married. Tessa truly believed Jonah loved her, he had hinted at it enough and he treated her with a kindness she never knew. Tessa did not know he had no heart to give her, until she overheard a conversation between Thomas and Jonah, where he had married her to take care of his father. It was not until Tessa left that Jonah realized he did have a heart after all, but was it too late? **Sexual situations within marriage

Torn

I liked the romantic scenes and the tension between the characters but I just couldn't help feeling he fell in love with her for her housekeeping and nursing skills more than for herself!
