Kimberley Krey at Amazon
Every once in a while you come across a book that is just a gem of a find by an author you haven't read before.
This story, part of a series, is such a book. Though not a Christian romance, it is albeit, a very clean read; but with spice. It is deliciously romantic.
Jade's Cowboy Crush opens with a hint that the hero and heroine may have a brief history together. It immediately jumps forward into a suspenseful conundrum for Jade. She witnesses a murder and needs to enter Witness Protection with her son.
Enter Gavin, her protector--a hard as nails cowboy, moonlighting as a construction contractor, with a history of his own. Home is not a place Gavin wants to return to; but home is where he's agreed to take mother and son and pretend to be happily married.
Of course this is a recipe for trouble. Ms. Krey writes the best kissing scenes. Just as in real life, the characters must choose the high ground and just when you think you can't turn the page, they make the right choice.
This one has you hanging on the edge of your seat at the end. Gavin's past collide's with the future he hope's to have with his little family. Will the bad guy find them and will Gavin be able to save them and his heart? You have to read to find out.
An excellent, clean, romantic, suspense for your keeper shelf. I plan to read the whole series. Ms. Krey, you've made my list of favorite authors!

A most unusual treatise for a story. I wasn't sure how the author was going to carry it off. In fact, I wasn't sure that I would  enjoy a story where the person had married someone and then discovered that the person wasn't who they married at all.
But Ms. Jennings uses the culture of that time, integrity, beliefs, and loyalties to make you understand and root for her characters. As you discover the reasons for the misunderstandings and see how the characters deal with what life has thrown their way you find yourself turning the pages because you are so invested in the story.
War wounds, not only those physically involved, but those left behind. An Inconvenient Marriage is thought provoking from several directions. Complicated relationships, life and death issues, and the after effects of war and it's effects on daily living make this story worth your time and investment.  This is one I will want to read again just to see what I missed. 
The romantic encounters were that--romantic. At the climax, the tension was palpable  but things naturally evolved into a very humorous outcome to a serious situation. You have to read to find out.
I received this book from Netgalley for an honest review.
