"Wedded for the Baby" [Stand-In Brides Series, Book 2] by Dorothy Clark

Author's Book Description : His Family of Convenience
For Widower and ex-doctor Trace Warren, a fresh start in Whisper Creek comes with a catch: to save his home and apothecary shop, Trace must remarry. While making Katherine Fleming his wife is simple enough, he refuses to fall in love again. But keeping his distance from the kind, beautiful woman and the infant she brings with her is dangerously difficult...

Katherine promised to protect the baby left in her care, and a marriage of convenience to Trace is the only way to do that. But all too soon. Trace possesses Katherine's heart, even as he still carefully guards his own. With hopes of turning their arrangement into a true love match, can Katherine convince Trace to forgive himself for his past mistakes and embrace his new family?

My Book Review : 3 out of 5 stars!! A man and woman find themselves in a unique situation and get into an in-name-only marriage, all to save a shop and protect a little baby. However, will they find love along the way?

This was a sweet romance that made me put on my "genealogist hat" as I kept thinking about how this could've happened to my own distant relatives too. Though I liked the "home" that Trace and Katherine came to make with each other and for "their son," it was the romance that I had a hard time believing. I felt this way because of Trace and Katherine’s self-imposed distance that they put on themselves, which seems that they were more friends than anything else. Nevertheless, I liked how this couple worked through everything and how their little town worked together.

I do recommend this novel to anyone looking for a sweet historical novel that throws in only a little romance.

Book Teaser(s) :
She grasped the turned wood handle and pushed the carriage forward. He moved off to the side and fixed his gaze on the wheels and undercarriage. The iron wheels rolled smoothly over porch floor, the sound blending with the rustle of Katherine's gown and his own footsteps. The baby stopped crying and waved his little arms in the air. "Look, Trace, he likes it."
He nodded, glanced out at the rutted dirt road. "You won't be able to walk him on the road at present. It's too rough. But they intend to cover it with scree in the spring. It will be packed smooth then. Of course, you will still have to watch for the rattlesnakes."
"Rattlesnakes!" She jerked to a halt and stared out at the surrounding fields. "Do they live in the grass? Will they hibernate through the winter?"
"I don't know. I've not been here long enough to become familiar with their habits. I'm only telling you so you won't walk to town by yourself."
"You needn't worry. I won't get off of this porch! Snakes!" She shuddered.
A smile tugged at his lips. ~ within Chapter 3
"Whoever would have thought peppermint tea could save someone? When correctly applied, of course." ~ within Chapter 18
