5 stars A quick read that ran the gamut of emotions. The h&h were likable. Rachel is young and naive, doesn’t realize the positive impact she is having on the household. Cord is arrogant, but I like that he wants her from the beginning. This author can set a scene in a few words, making it easy to picture it in my mind’s eye and still move the story briskly along; sometimes I like that. Other times, I like an in-depth look at the characters and the time period, something she has done in her ...more

A light-hearted read.

Having read truckloads of romantic novels in the course of time, one gradually starts losing interest in the whole genre of Romance itself. However, I must quote here that there are some books which revive the hunger to read more from this genre. One of such books is 'The Wedding Promise' by Carolyn Davidson. It is not a book that creates an expression of awe or one that brings tears to one's eye, but it certainly is a book that provides satisfaction for no hour in reading i

This book was put out in 1998 and I can't believe I missed it back then!! I'm a fan of Carolyn Davidson and always enjoyed her books. This story is set in Kansas right after the Civil War in around 1868. This a sweet romance with just a touch of heat to it, but just a touch!

Here is a write up from Amazon:
THE WAY WEST FOR RACHEL SINCLAIR LED STRAIGHT DOWN THE AISLE

And into the arms of a man she barely knew! But Cord McPherson had taken her and her brothers in when trouble struck along the trail.

Not exactly my favorite.

Rachel and her two younger brothers, are left alone after their parents gone. When they're running around looking for place to stay, they stumbled on Cord's land. Cord, seeing a fine young woman taking care of her brothers, was intrigued and asked Rachel to live and work in his house. But it turns out, Cord also fall for her each and everyday until he can't handle it anymore. He ask her to marry him..

I liked it at first, the way Cord behave towards Rachel are sweet and a

I felt there was too much dialog and not enough narrative content. I couldn't connect with the characters and the story wasn't eventful and pretty much boring. I almost couldn't bring myself to finish this book.

pretty good book, and rather 2 loves stories in one. And though it talks about it being a marriage of convenience, it really wasn't.

This is one of Davidson's better novels. It is worth reading just for one scene alone. (nope. not gonna spoil it for ya)

She met Dixie Browning at a Harlequin dinner in Charleston, South Carolina, and told Dixie she was writing, but that she feared she was too old to begin such an undertaking. Dixie's response spurred Carolyn to pursue her dream. Dixie said, in her own inimitable fashi
