The Christmas Bargain
Luke Granger is about to get more than he bargained for…

As owner and manager of the Hardman bank, Luke Granger is a man of responsibility and integrity in the small 1890s Eastern Oregon town. Calling in a long overdue loan, Luke finds himself reluctantly accepting a bargain in lieu of payment from the shiftless farmer who barters his daughter to settle his debt.

Philamena Booth is both mortified and relieved when her father sends her off with the banker as payment of his debt. Held captive on the farm by her father since the death of her mother more than a decade earlier, Philamena is grateful to leave. If only it had been someone other than the handsome and charismatic Luke Granger riding in to rescue her. Ready to uphold her end of the bargain as Luke’s cook and housekeeper, Philamena is prepared for the hard work ahead. What she isn’t prepared for is being forced to marry Luke as part of this crazy Christmas bargain.

    By the third chapter, I was almost hoping it was the end of the book. It was so wonderful! I kept worrying that something bad was going to happen. Instead, it got more beautiful as the book progressed. Their love was born of trust and a belief in human kindness. Well done! ...

    I was seriously smiling through most of this book, it was so cute and so sweet! Marriage of convenience is one of my favorite tropes. My only complaint is that the writing changes character perspective without any warning or indication. I eventually got used to it and it didn't stop me...
