A Reader's Opinion: UNEXPECTED LOVE, A Marriage of Convenience Anthology

With stories by Heather Chapman, Mandi Ellsworth, Paula Kremser, and Ashtyn Newbold.


UNEXPECTED LOVE: A Marriage of Convenience Anthology contains four well-written stories. They're all sweet and tender stories set in slightly different times and places around the turn of the century. The authors give life to the settings as much to the characters. I don't want to say I had a favorite because they were all written in a way to blend well with the other stories. Sometimes things got oversweet, but I smiled and hoped and even felt my heart skip a beat when a deserving couple got their happily-ever-after. They're all feel-good romances about how unexpected love can become the best thing to ever happen.
