Emma Radcliff has loved Rafe
Sinclair for most of her life. Vowing at the tender age of
five to marry him, she has had to live with the ridicule of
that one statement until she has hardened her heart against
Rafe. When she finds out that her father has given his
permission and signed a marriage contract between she and Rafe,
Emma is hurt and angry. She knows that deep down a man life
Rafe could never love a woman like her so she sets out to
negotiate her own marriage terms.
Rafe Sinclair can’t believe
his grandfather put a stipulation to his inheritance. If he
doesn’t marry by his birthday, the ranch on which he lives
will no longer be his. Having no choice but to find a wife,
Rafe doesn’t look forward to the politics that go along with
wife hunting. However, his problem is solved when Emma
Radcliff’s father and he agree on his marrying Emma. Now if
he can just get Emma to agree, his inheritance will be safe
and Rafe will have a wife.
Emma and Rafe have to learn to
be a team. Each is cantankerous in their own way, Emma more
so in my opinion than Rafe. She was so angry at times that
even I winced at her displeasure. I thought Rafe was loyal
and hero worthy. He was patient and kind to Emma and I wished
more than once that she was a bit softer for this sexy virile
man. Beth Williamson came through for me with Emma’s
characterization because by the time I read the last word and
I knew without a doubt that Emma was meant for Rafe and vice
Beth Williamson never fails to deliver a book that will keep
me entertained and on the edge of my seat. Her storyline
of Branded was unique and I loved how it ended.
Nobody writes western historical romances like Beth Williamson
and I am proud to be one of her biggest fans.
