No one steps on Archer land. Not if they value their life. But when Meredith Hayes overhears a lethal plot to burn the Archer brothers off their ranch, a twelve-year-old debt compels her to take the risk. Fourteen years of constant vigilance hardens a man. Yet when Travis Archer confronts a female trespasser with the same vivid blue eyes as the courageous young girl he once aided, he can't bring himself to send her away. And when an act of sacrifice leaves her injured and her reputation in shreds, gratitude and guilt send him riding to her rescue once again. Despite the fact that Travis is no longer the gallant youth Meredith once dreamed about, she determines to stand by his side against the enemy that threatens them both. But will love ever be hers? Or will Travis always see her merely as a short-straw bride?… (mais)

I enjoyed this story! It captured my attention from the beginning, and it was hard to put down. I actually listened to it as an audio book, through Audible. I definitely plan to look for more books by Karen Witemeyer. ( )

After their father’s death, four boys are left alone, and Travis takes charge of the family. He breaks off almost all interaction with everyone else, and posts signs warning trespassers should stay away. But at 14 years of age, Meredith crosses onto their land, gets her leg caught in a trap, and is rescued by Travis, earning him her undying love. Years later, grown up Meredith tried to repay the kindness, and circumstances now bind them together. Their story is a tender one, but the road to happiness is a rough ride. The characters and the storyline are both intriguing, and the well-written tale is entertaining. ( )

Review originally posted on my Blog.

Short-Straw Bride by Karen Witemeyer is an absolutely delightful historical romance with a charming cast of characters. Meredith Hayes' long time crush on Travis Archer turns to love when he marries her to salvage her ruined reputation. With a bit of determination and a lot of faith in God, Meredith is determined to capture her husband's heart.

Meredith Hayes is headstrong, stubborn and feisty. She is also quite loyal, loving and kind-hearted. While she sometimes acts impetuously, her heart is always in the right place. When faced with uncertainty, she relies on her faith in God to guide her.

Travis Archer is a man of his word. Keeping his promise to his dying father to protect the Archer land, he and his brothers have isolated themselves from their neighbors. But their seclusion is a double-edged sword. While they have protected themselves from their enemies, they have also avoided any possible friendships as well. With Meredith's insight, a helping hand from an unexpected source and trust in God, Travis slowly begins to tear down his both his physical and emotional barriers.

The romance between Travis and Meredith is beautifully written. Their courtship is sweet and slow, which adds depth and authenticity to their growing feelings. Meredith's hero worship of Travis quickly turns to a deeper and more mature love. While Travis is a little slower to realize what his feelings are, it is always apparent to the reader he harbors strong emotions for Meredith.

I absolutely loved the relationship between Travis and his brothers Crockett, Neill and Jim. They are well drawn characters that I greatly enjoyed getting to know. Their scenes together are laugh out loud funny and their unshakeable devotion to one another is quite touching.

Short-Straw Bride by Karen Witemeyer is a wonderful novel that will resonate with anyone who enjoys a sweet romance. The spiritual aspect of the story is subtle but integral to the plot and the growth of the characters. Plenty of action and a suspenseful storyline keep the novel flowing at a brisk pace.

All in all, a heartwarming and emotionally satisfying story that I highly recommend.

Romance in any form is quite the genre departure for me, but this book is downright huggable, and I'm glad I gave it a chance. Three smiling stars for two characters whose marriage is easy to root for because they're simply so endearing. As is the book itself. The plot goes a little haywire by the end, and the directness ("telling-not-showing") of the style distracted me for the first few chapters until I acclimated to it, but I'm glad I kept reading. I love Travis's protector streak, his stubbornness and insecurities and how these elements of his personality both feed and balance each other. I love Meredith's assertiveness that never falls into annoying "spunk" or unrealistic modern-woman behavior. I love how determined both of them are to honor God in an unexpected marriage. Simply an adorable story. ( )
