Overview

Honor Witherspoon suddenly found herself up to her neck in the most delicious trouble she'd ever been in: Marriage!

After she was rescued from a harrowing kidnapping, Honor's billionaire father decreed she'd be completely safe in the hands of Bram Bennett--small-town, high-tech security genius. Now, with her globe-trotting days behind her, Honor must settle into a quieter life in Hot Water, California--married (technically) to a disarmingly attractive stranger who seldom ventures beyond his fortress walls. Well, this is one situation -- and one man--that could definitely use some shaking up...and Honor's just the one to do it!

To Bram, Honor only reminds him of the happiness he's lost. But he promised to marry her, and Bram is a man who believes in keeping his promises. He longs to be left alone with his memories, but is that possible once this tantalizing intruder has breached his tight security? And now that she's inside his house, what will keep her out of his heart?

Editorial Reviews

Jill M. Smith
"Christie Ridgway returns readers to Hot Springs in this touching new tale. THEN COMES MARRIAGE takes a classic plot device and uses it to build a warm, poignant, yet funny story of lovers discovering themselves and each other. Truly wonderful reading!"
Publishers Weekly
"Set in the imaginary town of Hot Water, Calif., Ridgway's newest contemporary romance (after First Comes Love) puts a sexy spin on an old romance cliche-the marriage of convenience."

    Good Sequel to First Comes Love

    Loved reading about the Town again, though they didn't seem to be as involved as they were in 'First Comes Love'. This book actually had a second story line with Mia and Josh that didn't take away from the main charaters Bram and Honor. The whole UFO thing was a little ify, but over all I really enjoyed it.

    Another winner from Christie Ridgway!!

    Bram Bennett sold his company to Warren Witherspoon, who then forced a marriage of convenience with his daughter Honor. Warren¿s ultimatum: marry Honor to keep her safe from her recent kidnappers, or he would destroy the economy of Bram¿s home town of Hot Springs. Bram, a techno wizard turned recluse since his wife¿s death eight years ago, reluctantly complies, unaware of how his life is about to change. Honor is bound and determined to start her life over in Hot Springs and embraces her new community, and reluctant husband, with her zest for life and refusal to be made an invalid by her kidnappers. The quirky characters of the community, along with yet another romantic liaison between Mia and bad man Josh, add life to a plot that has been used over and over again. In the hands of this gifted author, she turns it in to a poignant and hilarious love story, where everyone learns once again the value of love, trust and truly finding home. I enjoyed the fireworks and fun in this fabulous book!

    warm uplifting contemporary romance

    America¿s wealthiest heiress Honor Witherspoon marries its most famous security recluse Bram Bennett. Last year, Honor was a kidnap victim; Bram makes the security devices that keep ¿Celebs¿ safe. Many skeptics figure this is a business deal brokered by her daddy to provide affluence to Bram and security to Honor. The cynics think that Daddy Witherspoon brokered the deal, blackmailing and forcing Bram into marrying his daughter with the real threat to destroy his hometown of Hot Springs, California. Bram still mourns for his deceased wife, but Honor wants her marriage to work and not as a convenient deal sponsored by her dad. As Bram struggles to keep Honor safe and she still recovers from her harrowing experience, the impossible happen and they fall in love. However, can this couple turns their marriage of convenience brokered by an interested third party into a lifetime of happiness with he carrying eight years and she one year of baggage? The device seems to have been used, as many times as there are stars. The baggage seems to have been used as many pieces of sand. Put together, THEN COMES MARRIAGES should be a trite disaster, but in the hands of a magician readers receive a warm uplifting contemporary romance. The story line overcomes the banal almost corny mechanisms through the delightful lead couple, each unknowingly seeking someone to believe in even while they deny their love for one another. The townsfolk add a feeling of homecoming and a bit of wackiness, but Christine Ridgeway¿s latest Hot Springs¿ novel resides with the couple avoiding that elusive butterfly. Harriet Klausner
