A Cowboy of Convenience (Sheridan Sweethearts #2) by Stacy Henrie

Groom by Agreement

A real home–it’s what Vienna Howe dearly wants for her young daughter. Yet the ramshackle property she just inherited hardly qualifies. She can’t afford the repairs–until foreman West McCall suggests they start a dude ranch together. For propriety’s sake, they’ll need a marriage in name only…a practical solution for two wary hearts.

Years ago, West convinced Vienna to marry a man of means, never realising how cruel her husband could be. Guilt-ridden, he intends to secure the lovely widow’s future. But despite his reluctance to get close to anyone, this union might do more than fix Vienna’s ranch. It could open the door to a warm, loving future…

A Cowboy of Convenience (Sheridan Sweethearts #2) by Stacy Henrie

This is one of the better-written Love Inspired Historical books I’ve read recently. Set in Wyoming in 1901, it is a mature sort of book in that the characters are practical and sensible and have more in their lives to take into consideration than just falling in love.

A Cowboy of Convenience has a heavy focus on a child – as so many books in this line do – which isn’t always my thing, but this child was also written well and so I didn’t mind that aspect.

I didn’t find the faith elements overpowering here (this is supposed to be Christian fiction), and I liked the evolution of the relationship, which seemed natural to me.

If I’m going to be really picky, I’d say that the term “dude ranch” (which I had to look up, because I’ve heard of it but it’s not a term used here) wasn’t yet recorded at the time this book is set.

For fans of gentle Western romances.
