About the Book:
Beginning marriage in unexpected ways…
A Convenient Beginning
Aleksandr Berinksi is a Russian biochemist in the United States on a visa, which 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!
According to the back cover copy above, this book has two stories; my NetGalley only had one, and it was about what you would expect from a romance novel bundled with another in one volume.
Chase was a man on a mission--he wanted a bride and was advertising for one. In the mean time, he met Lesley whose snatched purse he rescued, and he fell hard and quick. Lesley was recovering from having her heart broken when her fiance of several years dropped her just before the wedding, to marry a co-worker. She decides she will marry him and go with him to Alaska. Of course once they get there she realizes just how small the town is...but this is a romance novel so...
About the best grade I give these short formula romances is a B-, so that's what this one gets.
