THE TEXAN'S CONTRACT MARRIAGE
THE TEXAN’S CONTRACT MARRIAGE (2) by Sara Orwig: When opera singer Camille Avanole contacts wealthy rancher Marek Rangel, her news knocks him flat. Six months ago she gave birth to his brother’s child — the same brother who died, along with Marek’s fiancée, in a plane crash — and she wants him to get to know his nephew. Marek proposes a marriage of convenience so he can take care of the child and his mother, but his feelings for Camille quickly become anything but convenient. The stilted dialogue and uptight hero take away from the tale, as does the lack of exposition for the secondary characters’ involvement. Additionally, there’s no real sense of place.
