REVIEW: The Marines Email Order Bride by Cora Seton
February 1, 2015
If Gunnery Sergeant Zane Hall wants to save his family’s ranch, he’ll need to fix up the buildings, stock the spread with cattle—and find a wife. The first two are easy with the help of his brothers, but getting hitched is proving more difficult. When he meets mountaineer Kenna North through an online ad, she seems like the perfect fit—at least in her e-mails. She wants the same thing he does: a temporary marriage to secure an inheritance. But when Zane meets Kenna, she’s nothing like he expects, and Zane finds himself changing his priorities, fast.
If Storm Willow wants to save her family’s seaside cottage, she’ll have to keep her boss happy—which means taking Kenna’s place and marrying Zane when Kenna is detained out of the country. As long as Storm acts her part, no one will know that she’s an imposter. But when she falls for the handsome Marine, Storm begins to wonder if holding onto the cottage is worth giving up on love.
Can a fake marriage lead to real happiness? Or is disaster just a heartbeat away?
Ok so I have been reading and keeping up with Cora Seton and her Chance Creek books for a few months now, basically since I came across Mason’s book on NetGalley. So it goes without saying when Zane’s book finally came out I jumped right on it. This was a huge pleasure read for me.
Oh the things that Zane feels and how quickly his relationship with Storm progresses couldn’t be more perfect. Being a Marine I knew I would have a soft spot for Zane, but the fact that he goes into it wanting love from the second he sees Storm just endured him to me even more.
Poor Storm, she does what she has to, to help her mom and sisters. It killed me to know that she was even pretending to be Kenna so that her mom could keep a little part of her father in her families life. The fact that she is able to help not only Zane but others that are having to deal with the Hall family changes in Chance Creek speaks highly of her character.
I give this book 5 BIG Kisses and hope you get into the two series as much I have.
