Two for one. Sweet with a little spice. I really enjoyed these two stories about brothers who must marriage for the sake of an inheritance and find their perfect matches. Both heroines were very likable.

While I’ve read Susan Mallery, knowing she always delivers, I’ve never read Maureen Child; I liked her a lot. I’ll be checking out more of her stories.

Lucas's Convenient Bride - Susan Mallery - 4 stars
I initially struggled with this book - the "ugly" and "skinny" heroine was the object of ridicule and her husband only married her as she would not tempt him physically. He never really had a realization moment of how hurtful he was. However, the story is sweet with the characters growing on each other and learning to make it work. It's a bit cliche as it turns out the heroine was beautiful all along but it was a nice read.

Two brothers, who need to get married but live in the west where there are few women, learn to deal with marriage and the women in their lives after the vows. Funny and endearing.

I wouldn't call this an anthology as the two stories are intrinsically tied together, but they are still two separate stories by the same author. The second one I enjoyed much more than the first, but I found both heroes to be kinda unbelievable. I didn't connect with their reasons for never marrying or loving a woman. They both grovelled nicely after coming to their senses though, and so I gave the book 3 stars. I loved the parrot!!!

“I think that’s everything,” she said, rising to her feet. “Thank you, Mr. MacIntyre.”

He shook his head. “Lucas. Or the deal is off.”

She pressed her lips together. “All right. Lucas. And I must tell you, I don’t particularly care for you shortening my name. Emily is perfectly fine.”

“I know, Em. I’ll keep that in mind.”
