Wildflowers have to be strong and resilient to bloom amid the rugged beauty of Wyoming - and so do the women.
Dave Currick was everything Matty Brennan wanted for as along as she could remember. Right up until he broke her heart six years ago. Now that she's returned to Wyoming for good, what she wants more than anything is to save her family's ranch. Even if that means swallowing her pride and asking Dave to marry her.
Matty's up to something - Dave knows that much. Just as he knows that Matty needs help, so of course he'll provide it. Doing what's best for Matty is second nature. Even when it comes to marrying her in name only. Although he can't resist one hot-blooded kiss after the "I dos" - a kiss as fiery as the flame-red Indian Paintbrush that's always reminded him of Matty.
Maybe, just maybe, his Matty will become more to him than Almost a Bride.
If you enjoy stories about strong women and the men who love them, you'll love the entire Wyoming Wildflowers series.

This is the third time that I have read/listened to this book and I have enjoyed this book more each time.
This is a lighthearted, sweet story and I recommend it to all who enjoy a brief escape from the daily grind.
Yes. Touching love story. Mattie left for college planning to return home to marry her childhood sweetheart. That is until he told her they should see other people. Six years later she's back after the death of her uncle. She got the ranch and the financial mess it was in. After ignoring Dave she goes to him to ask for his help. Not money, but a temporary marriage...can that be turned into permanent?
Everything. Each character was captured, disguised from the others
When they parted without fighting but for real.
I liked how even though Dave knew Maddie was up to something and wasn't being honest with him, he went along with her plans to marry in name only. He really loved her and wanted a chance to make it a real marriage. No matter what Maddie did or said he went along hoping to have a real relationship with her.
Dave. He was my favorite character all around. I wasn't crazy about Maddie just because she was so up and down about her feelings and definitely led Dave on a chase.
Didn't have an extreme reaction other than frustration at times with Maddie. She just couldn't make up her mind. Couldn't seem to be honest with Dave. Just wanted only what she wanted without thinking of anyone else.
This was a good romance once the H*H figured out how they felt. I'm reading the next book in this series now and like Maddie's character much better since her and Dave are married and happy.
I read this book about a year ago and enjoyed it and the rest of the series. I have a long daily commute to work and have found that books make the time go faster. Almost A Bride is a very enjoyable diversion. Love the story and characters. The narrator has enough character in her voice that she adds to the enjoyment. Very well done!
Though predictable it was well written and met my expectations. Perfect for a rainy Saturday. I would purchase from this author again.
Anyone would be better.
I'm at 57% and I'm going to finish the book by just reading it. The narrator is terrible and I just can't listen to her any more.
