Short-Straw Bride by Karen Witemeyer

Bethany House supplied me with a copy of Short-Straw Bride by Karen Witemeyer. This book was definitely fun to read.

No one steps on Archer land. Not if they value their life. But when Meredith Hayes overhears a plot to burn the Archer brothers off their ranch, a long-standing debt compels her to take the risk. 

Years of constant vigilance harden a man. Yet when Travis Archer comes across a female trespasser with the same vivid blue eyes as the courageous young girl he once aided, he can't bring himself to send her away. And when an act of sacrifice leaves her injured and her reputation in shreds, gratitude and guilt prompt him to attempt to rescue her once again.

Despite the fact that Travis is no longer the gallant youth Meredith once dreamed about, she vows to stand by his side. But will love ever be hers? Or will Travis always see her as merely a short-straw bride?

The story line and characters seem to be a little over the top and melodramatic, but still fun to read. Some of the things said or done in the book I can't imagine happening in real life, but then where's the fun in writing a book if you can't use your imagination, right?

After reading the first few chapters, you kind of know how the book will end. You may not know how it will all happen, but you know there's a happy ending after all is said and done!
