Publisher's Summary

Beginning marriage in unexpected ways....

A convenient beginning

Aleksandr Berinksi is a Russian biochemist in the United States on a visa that is about to expire. Marriage will allow him to stay - marriage to Julia Conrad. If Julia's going to save her Seattle-based company, she needs him as much as he needs her. There's a Groom Wanted in Julia's life. And not just any groom!

An unusual beginning

A billboard on the side of a Seattle road is common enough - but one advertising for a bride? It's Chase Goodwin's solution to the problem of finding a wife quickly, a wife to bring home to Alaska. Lesley Campbell has her own reasons for responding...and in no time she's the Bride Wanted in Chase's life!

Two beautiful stories

Both Stories were amazing. Julia and Alec we're wonderful together. Leslie and Chase were adorable.

An Early Debbie Macomber updated

Debbie Macomber is a favorite author of mine. That being said, she has gotten better & better through the years. I believe this edition is updated slightly with current technology (cell phones, etc).

Because of the narrator, I wasn’t sure I could last through the first hour. However, I persevered & finally was able to focus on the story and not her breathy voice & whiny character voices.

I like the second story better than the first.

Love at first sight or love grows through circumstances.

Wonderful stories, show the many different ways Love can grow. Always encouraging us to see love in many different circumstances.

Enjoyed Both Stories

When you see the star rating, it is suppose to be 5 stars in all three categories!
Both stories were enjoyable.
I recommend these books to those who enjoy a sweet romance.

Boring and Repetitious

Don't waste your credits. The two stories featured here are almost identical and both as boring.

Exceptional bad writing

No emotional depth, childish description, no finesse of story telling. Don’t understand how the author is number one selling author and the good reviews.

Bland, superficial, predictable and rushed

This was the worst book I've read. The plot of both stories was very superficial, with the second one being only slightly better. The characters are flat and have no additional depth other than the bare minimum to move the plot along. There is no real character development - it's so unrealistic how one moment one character doesn't like the other and a moment later they have strong feelings of affection. Most of the time the story is predictable and the plot is rushed. There's no interesting setting or situations other than the character drama.

I also really dislike how the female characters are pushed around by the male characters. Some of their thoughts indicate they don't like it, but they don't really do anything about it. The romances feel very fake, without any real foundation. This is not how relationships should work.

The book had a nice title and cover, and a curious premise but unfortunately that's all there is to it.

For those of you raving about this book - if this is your bar for a good book then you'll be amazed at what better titles are out there.

Different read

The story line was different. A little slow at times but overall enjoyable. Worth a try.
