Stephanie Suesan Smith writing for Caroline Clemmons this week.
One of my favorite series written by Caroline is The Kincaids. This was Caroline's very first series.
The Kincaids starts out with The Most Unsuitable Wife. Drake has to marry by the age of 30 or see the ranch he grew up on and runs go to a hated cousin. Pearl is responsible for her two siblings. Someone is targeting all three of them, but she doesn't know who it is or why. Drake and Pearl meet while Drake is buying horses for the ranch, and decide they can solve each other's problems by marrying. Of course, then they have to learn to live with each other and deal with whoever is after Pearl. This is one of the few sensuous books Caroline has written.
The Most Unsuitable Husband begins with Sarah. Her mother dies and Sarah goes to settle her affairs. Nate, her stepbrother whom she doesn't know, also goes. When he finds out he has been reported dead and Sarah sold the saloon he believes is his, Nate decides to swindle Sarah out of everything. Sarah, meanwhile, has found three orphans she needs help with. She turns to Nate, who takes the opportunity to ingratiate himself with Sarah. Can Nate ignore his growing feelings and swindle Sarah? Can Sarah forgive Nate when she finds out his original intentions? Sensuous
