THE MENACE TAKES A BRIDE
A Sweet Historical Mail Order Bride Romance (Rated PG)
The Husband-Maker Trilogy, Book 1
[Note: Each book in this trilogy stands alone and may be read in any order.]
Garth is content to wait for the right woman to come along. His father isn't.
Garth Wakefield may be pushing thirty, but he's not about to settle for just any wife, in spite his father's claim that unmarried men over the age of twenty-five are a menace to society. Garth knows he's anything but a menace; he owns a lucrative business, is an honest and upstanding citizen, and would never dream of misleading any of his female friends.
When it comes to matters of the heart, he wants it all. Passion, enduring love, and happily-ever-after. When Garth's impatient father forges a paper marriage, Garth suddenly finds himself saddled with a bride. Worse, Mitzi has full control of his fortune and business.
While Garth works desperately to free himself, his delightful bride entwines their lives and hearts until he can't bear to see her go. He's found everything he's ever wanted in the most unlikely of people, his own not-completely-legally-wed wife. But can he convince Mitzi to marry him all over again, for love this time, before she learns the marriage is a hoax?

LOVED this first book in the series (I like that it's a complete book with satisfying conclusion). Off to read the next one!
Who knew a proxy marriage could be so funny?!!! Page one and I was smiling! Garth doesn't stand a chance against a gang of matchmakers, especially with his own father leading the way. When Garth realizes he has to honor his fake marriage vows or lose everything, at least until he can figure a way out of it, the story really takes off. Mitzi is a charmer from the minute you meet her. She always thinks the best of everyone, and even though Garth doesn't deserve her at first, I was hoping for her sake that things could work out. Don't worry, it's fun to watch him squirm later, and he really is a yummy hero. The matchmakers are hilarious! They're so funny, and the ending sets up what I can only hope is their next scheme. Bottom line, this story is pretty much adorable.
