New Release by Alexa Verde! Show Me a Stand-in Husband: Small-Town Single-Father Cowboy Romance (Cowboy Crossing Romances Book 9)
Can an accidental marriage between a rebellious cowgirl and a straitlaced single-dad doctor become true love?
After a traumatic divorce, Aurora Moore never wants to get married again. But when her rock-singer boyfriend, Ari, needs married status to clean up his act for a budding new career, she reluctantly agrees to help. What should she do when she realizes the man she just married is her boyfriend’s twin?
In Vegas for his brother’s wedding, Carter McFarland wakes up with a throbbing headache after too many painkillers—and a ring on his finger! Apparently, Ari’s drunken friends mistook Carter for Ari and dragged Carter to the altar while Ari was asleep. Annulment in order, right?
But, due to a painful secret, Carter needs a mother for his son, who takes an immediate shine to Aurora. Carter’s father threatens him with a heart attack and his grandmother with her cane when he as much as peeps that his marriage was a mistake. With time, he also senses vulnerability and kindness behind Aurora’s rebellious facade and is drawn toward the vibrant woman. But is it enough to turn a stand-in husband into a real one?
Welcome to Cowboy Crossing, a small town in the Show Me State where swoon-worthy single dad cowboys fall for strong-willed forty-something women, though sometimes those rugged handsome men might need a nudge—or a push.
my point of view:
This story was a lot of fun, and had everything I enjoy in a Christian romance! A single dad, a divorced, hurting strong female character…a little suspense, and most of all a romance story that will melt your heart! This series is full of family love, and it shows in every book. This one especially, since as much as Aurora loves her family, she really doesn’t like them interfering, lol. Coming from a large Italian family myself, I can completely understand how she feels! Alexa Verde never ceases to amaze me with her writing.
She brings characters who are real and situations such as divorce, pain and suffering, that we can all relate to. Plus, she gives us wonderful words of God’s amazing love and forgiveness.
Some Amazon reviews:
This is the long awaited book 9 of the Cowboy Crossing Romance series. Aurora and Carter’s love story is beautiful. It starts out as a mistaken identity marriage where Aurora thinks she is marrying her boyfriend, Ari, but actually marries his twin brother, Carter. They see the Hand of God at work. Carter’s son, Jaxton, is delightful and loves Aurora right away. It is great to see Aurora and her family from the other books in this one.
Once again, Alexa has written a truly remarkable book. I cannot put her books down until I have finished them and they are all must reads for everyone who loves good, clean Christian books.
