A Most Inconvenient Love: excerpt

Hello, reader friends! Join me in welcoming back our author friend Ruth Logan Herne for a JustRead blog blitz and giveaway celebrating A Most Inconvenient Love!

about the book

Title: A Most Inconvenient Love
Series: Prairie Brides #1
Author: Ruth Logan Herne
Genre: Historical/Western Romance
Release Date: February 26, 2019

Sober businessman Seb Ward may have come from a wealthy lumber-baron family in Minnesota, but he knows that appearances can be deceiving, and that his illustrious family is pretty dysfunctional. Being in another state has provided the buffer he sought from his father’s misdeeds, but when a little boy shows up on a train… a little boy who looks enough like Seb to be his own child… Seb’s faced with a dilemma. Raise the boy as his own, or let his mother suffer the embarrassment of “a brother by another mother.” And when the boy takes a shine to the Rachel Eichas, the newly contracted school teacher, Seb can’t help but do the same.

But Rachel was raised by an unloving, business-first father and there’s no way she’s looking for those same qualities in a husband. Can she see through Seb’s focus and drive to find the loving man within?

Sebastian Ward didn’t growl, and he felt good about that.

He wanted to, and he would be well within his rights if he did. While he expected the 9:03 train to deliver a massive load of planed wood from his father’s Minnesota lumber mills, he wasn’t expecting an illegitimate brother as part of the deal.

The five-year-old, tear-stained boy standing in front of him said otherwise. And when a wet stain branded the front of the little guy’s trousers, Seb realized something else.

He’d need a new, smaller seat in the necessary.
