Back Cover Blurb:
Summer James was young, she was beautiful and, an impoverished orphan. Who would want such a woman? Obviously no one. For here she was, eighteen and now of age to set out on her own. But New Orleans was full of men with evil intent for one such as herself, and she saw no other choice but to take the only offer for survival she could find and become a mail order bride. What she didn't count on was becoming Sheriff Clayton Riley's Christmas present!
I found the characters in this novella to be superficial. Morgan doesn’t take the time to develop them or let her readers get to know them. The naiveté and oh poor me aura of the main character got old after a while. It was understandable, but did become tedious.
As a whole, this was an enjoyable, quick, sweet read. But it had the potential to be so much more.
