Entertainment by the Best!

I really enjoyed this story so much and think that perhaps this is the very best one in the series so far.
It is written in a way that one feels the hopelessness of a new bride when she loses her husband and then her happiness as her life takes a turn for the better.
This is a very well written book by Barbara Goss and J. Scott Bennett has lent his magical voice to it to make it a delight to listen to. Entertainment by the best!
I listened to the audiobook version and my voluntary review above is unbiased.

A forced marriage.

A lovely story of love lost and found, betrayal and forgiveness. Greta and Adam are forced into marriage, but theirs is not easy. When another man tries to take his wife, Adam must fight for the love of his life.

The performance by Mr. Bennett brings life to this wonderful story! Ms. Goss writes with passion and this is another amazing story!

A Bride for Adam

Greta always had feelings for Adam, but it was His brother Seth that married her. When Seth passed away, leaving Greta pregnant, his parents convinced Adam to enter into a proxy marriage. After 4 years of being out to sea, and not returning home, Greta decides to annul the marriage and move on with her life. Will Adam make it back in time, and is there even a marriage worth saving?

If you’re looking for a clean, sweet inspirational romance, look no further. Barbara Goss delivers a touching story that will leave you feeling quite content.

J. Scott Bennett is a marvelous narrator. He truly brings the story to life.
