A Charming Romance – Bride By Necessity

When marriage becomes a necessity, can true love prevail? That is the question that Payton Whittard and Jonathan Lambrick find themselves faced with after tragedy leaves Payton orphaned and in need of a home. Jonathan takes her in out of charity, but soon finds that his young charge is, in fact, a beautiful woman.

This was a delightful, light romance perfect for a rainy fall afternoon. I’m a huge fan of Victorian England and loved the way society is portrayed in this story. Payton is a heroine to root for, and Jonathan, the perfect English hero. A great read for lovers of British romance!


But when the master of Kent Park takes in the orphaned daughter of a tenant, Jonathan doesn’t expect his young charge to be a stunning woman. Or for a predatory relative to lay claim to her. Marriage may be the only way to protect Payton from an unthinkable fate.

Payton Whittard knows her marriage to Jonathan is about safety, not love. But the feelings that soon arise during their arrangement are anything but safe. Still, there’s something about her handsome protector that makes her trust him with her life. Can Payton trust him with her heart, as well?

Linda Glaz is married with three children and three grandchildren. Her triple-A personality allows her to be an agent with Hartline as well. She loves anything with the written word, and loves stories based on family lore. Rich stories wait to be fictionalized and written, stories handed down through families, no matter legend or exact truth. Linda loves the opportunity to write or find "just the right book" to shake up the industry. She's a charging train: "All aboard!"
