A Worthy Groom by Angela K. Couch
1771 – Sapling Grove settlement on the Holston River (Tennessee)
The Cowden temper has been Marcus’s lifelong bane. A trait Lorinda Cowden curses. Now, winning the heart of his bride hinges on fighting a war without raising a fist.



“This is my favorite in this collection. It’s a marriage of convenience for Lorinda, but she must marry her late husband’s cousin. Will Marcus have the same Cowden temper? I love the tentative and tender romance.” ~Amazon Reviewer

Really good. Widow Lorinda has no choice but to marry Marcus, her abusive dead husband’s cousin. She has no reason to think he will treat her kindly, and Marcus struggles with his own anger issues. A man choosing to break the cycle of abuse is a powerful story to tell, and this one is beautifully done. Powerfully emotional, I’m definitely giving this one five stars.” ~Amazon Reviewer
