Review: Marrying Mr. Wrong by Melissa Jagears

Marrying Mr. Wrong is a lively addition to the Frontier Vows series, yet it can be enjoyed as a stand alone novel, too, if you haven’t read any other books in the series.

Gwen and Tim are quite the characters! Gwen has often come off as flighty and flirty. She has set her cap for men of means and she hopes to find a well to do husband.

Tim comes from the lowest background you can imagine. His family is dirt poor, with a father who isn’t above stealing any money Tim brings to his mother. He often drinks and some abuse was hinted at, as well.

When Gwen’s eyes become opened to the type of honorable man Tim is, she begins to recognize the value in things other than money and possessions. She also begins to hope that Tim could one day see her as a worthwhile wife. Yet, all Tim seems to be able to see is what he can’t offer her. These two have a lot of emotional growing to do in this story. There are moments of humor and moments of pain, plus a dash of danger added in, as well.

(4 stars)

I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.


Can a man who’s completely wrong for her help her find Mr. Right?

Gwendolyn McGill wants to be loved and accepted for who she is, but that’s hard to do in a small town where everyone judges her by the scandal her father caused. Unfortunately, the man she hoped would sweep her away from all the wagging tongues is no longer interested in marrying her. Unable to leave town, she’s determined to prove she’s more than just a pretty face who knows how to bat her eyelashes.

For years, Timothy O’Conner has loved Gwen from a distance, knowing someone like her would never be attracted to a lowly ranch hand with a blemished face like him. When Gwen unexpectedly shows up at the ranch, asking him to help her learn how to attract a man of quality, Tim’s feelings become even harder to suppress.

When danger pushes them together, they discover there’s more to each other than either of them imagined. Though God is no respecter of persons, is the desire of their hearts strong enough to defy society’s expectations?
