Posted:  Aug. 21, 2014

The Soldier's E-Mail Order Bride (The Heroes of Chance Creek, #2)Staff Sergeant Austin Hall has a brilliant record in the Special Forces—except for one disastrous decision that cost his best friend’s life. Now he’s heading home to Chance Creek, Montana, where he’d like to spend the rest of his days in the obscurity of his family’s ranch. Too bad Great Aunt Heloise won’t hand the ranch over unless all four of the Hall brothers marry and one of them produces an heir within the year. Austin is too broken to marry for love, so he places an online ad for a fake wife. What could possibly go wrong?

Ella needs to leave Hollywood—fast. It’s bad enough another actress stole her fiancé—on national television. Now she’s ruined her comeback by decking her ex on a morning talk show. Pursued by paparazzi, Ella needs a new life, a new name and someplace to hide. When she reads Austin’s ad for a stand-in wife, she knows she can act this part perfectly. To the rest of the residents of Chance Creek, they’ll be a happily married couple. In private, they’ll just be roommates. In a year when she’d old news and the Hall brothers secure the ranch, she and Austin will quietly divorce and she’ll go on her way.

Or will she?

Austin’s already finding it hard to remember his promise never to love again. Ella’s finding it hard to keep her hands to herself. But when they’re asked make a back-up baby, Ella realizes she may have stepped into a lifetime role.

Can this pretend marriage go the distance?

HUBBY'S REVIEW:
This is the second book in Cora Seaton series. This story is a little more serious Austin the second eldest son is leaving the Army but he is having problems still with the last mission he was on in Afghanistan. And now with the rules that their great Aunt Heloise put on them does not make any of what is going on in his head any easier to deal with. It is actually causing him more problems. He is going to the ranch for the wedding of Mason and Regan, and now he must find a wife he is not looking forward to that at all. Ella Scales, was a top actress who was in a free fall from the academy awards which she did not win and her fiancé with an younger women who did win the award and then going on a talk show and losing it when the host also had her ex and the actress he was now with and see was pregnant. She could not leave so she did the next best thing, she poured out her coffee and hit him on the side of his head with the empty mug. Knowing her career was in a free fall and probably over she left. The next thing she was doing was she found the ad answered it and when they met they agreed to get married and stay married for a year. A win, win for both. Little did they know that they would be the best for each other? This book for was a lot more emotional than her first one in the series. Austin is dealing with PTSD along with guilt and just angry for still being alive. Ella, doesn’t realize how much she missed riding horses, being outdoors and actually making friends because they just want to get to know her and not want a part in a movie. This book was a story of two lost people finding each other and not expecting the other person to help the other one move through life to the next event. A very emotional but a very heart felt story. I really liked this story. I got this book from net galley.
