Reluctant to Wed: Arranged Marriage Series, Book 1
To keep her parents from losing their farm in Pennsylvania, Emma agrees to travel to England and accept her grandfather’s offer to arrange a marriage for her with the Earl of Devonport. She secretly hopes a marriage to this stranger will lead to love. To honor his father, Devon agrees to marry Emma. A marriage of convenience is acceptable to the earl who wants no emotional ties. He needs an heir and not a clingy wife who would impinge on his freedom. She would be well provided for and have no cause for complaint.
Emma’s straightforward and unpretentious manner draws Devon’s reluctant admiration. Unfortunately, long-held fears are not easily overcome. When the unexpected happens, all hope seems lost. Emma must learn to trust God while surrendering her dreams and expectations into His care.
This is the first book in the Arranged Marriage Series. It is a Christian Historical Regency Romance.
