Series: The Mystery Matchmaker of Ella Pointe #5
Unwanted. Unwed. Unexpectedly matched?
Can a daring plan bring together a pregnant social outcast and a lonely lighthouse keeper forced to marry in this slow burn romance set in the gilded age?
My heart shattered when my sister’s fiancé took what he wanted against my will, leaving me pregnant and disavowed by my family. Driven to desperate measures, I agree to take a housekeeping job on a remote island off the cost of Washington state. The man I’m working for? He’s kind, handsome and has a unique understanding of my position.
The agency’s ultimatum is clear: marry or lose my cherished position as the Whale Island lighthouse keeper. My childhood home, my sanctuary, hangs in the balance. I am frantic to keep it, but there are no candidates on this secluded island.
Until Sara Rose arrives. Pregnant from a vicious attack, without family, and desperate for safety and security, she needs a husband as much as I need a wife.
Out of options, she accepts my proposal of marriage, though we agree there would be nothing but necessity between us.
But as time passes, I realize I need more than just a sham marriage with her. Sara Rose needs me, and I need her too. For much more than just the upkeep of the lighthouse.
Have the secret matchmakers brought them true love despite the odds?
The fifth installment of Tess Thompson’s clean and wholesome historical romance series will leave you breathless and rooting for these unlikely lovers in this marriage-of-convenience tale.
