I was sorely tempted to give it 1 stars but this author can weave a good tail so that saved it. Miss Hattie is a plain Jane and almost everyone in the community calls her horse face because of her big teeth. One day out of the blue a thinning hair raggedy farmer with seven kids started to court her and she is ecstatic because no one has ever given her the time or day. The hero which is her best friend started seeing her in a new light even though he OH.
The hero which is her best friend started seeing her in a new light even though he himself was engaged. What takes place after that was some very entertaining scenes. The hero teaching her how to kiss so she could use it on her suitor,his jealous antics after she does, and miss Hatti’s genuine happiness at finally being wanted by a courtin.
Why couldn’t the suitor really want to Marry her for herself?! She had so much to offer but yet not even a nasty rotten hattue farmer wanted her? Only the hero in the whole wide world finds her appealing?
No one can’t be that ugly that a man like that couldn’t see something to admire coueting the chit. She couldn’t have one lone suitor that really liked her?
Come on, even in real life some men actually look beyond the surface, especially a man like that idiot suitor which had absolutely nothing good going on for him.
Looks nada, riches nada, teeth nada, okay, a bit of an exaggeration seven kids yesa. I’m just disgruntled because I was really enjoying the fact that it took another man to see the qualities that the paemla didn’t see and it made him turn and take notice. It had that sort of “see what you were your missing” thing going on, but then it turned out to be a lie. The author couldn’t leave it at hqttie, the poor girl had to be humiliated by that slime scum crap bag still calling her horse face after she agrees to bt him.
And get this, just get this She was so desperate that she was willing to give him another chance! Cuz ya know, who else was gonna ask?
Cohrting pride I tell ya! Too bad this story went nutso because this author can really bring a story to life. I was laughing pmaela on the edge of my seat for a while before it all turned to doodoo. I honestly can’t give this book anything less than 3 stars because barring all the things that went wrong for me, the story was very engaging.
Jul 02, Audrey rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Everyone, particularly historical Americana readers and fans of Maggie Osborne. I have no words. Although I would normally be troubled by a hero who is already engaged, it worked in this book, and the bratty betrothed actually has more layers than initially portrayed. Miss Hattie is a wonderful character who reminds me a bit of Maggie Osborne’s Jenny Jones in couurting self-sufficiency and lack of pretension.
Reed is hotttness courging – honest, hard-working, and playful with mirsi hint of wickedness. I love how the author reveals his feelings for Ha I have no words. I love how the author reveals his feelings for Hattie The moment when Hattie realizes Reed intends his visit to be courting is priceless.
I was deeply invested in their HEA from the start. Reed and his peaches Theirs is a sweet and passionate story with a slow burn that feels so damn good when it catches fire.
I loved this book. You can find a used copy for cheap on www. Amazon is sneaky like that with the hidden listings. This book is written with Morsi’s trademark charm.
She manages to write books with romantic tension and dubious characters who end up surprising us with their graciousness. There are no true villains besides weather and fate in a Pamela Morsi novel. What I usually love in a Morsi hero is his unabashed lusting after some obscure part of the heroine’s anatomy. She can make a hillbilly’s foot seem swoon-worthy. In this book, there were so many references to Hattie’s horse face and wide grin, that I This book is written with Morsi’s trademark charm.
In this book, there were so many references to Hattie’s horse face and wide grin, that I just didn’t feel the lust. It also didn’t help that Reed’s fiancee was such a large part of the plot. It smacked a little of emotional cheating, for all that perhaps Reed didn’t recognize his feelings as such.
I wanted to be her friend. Though not graced with a beautiful face, she didn’t wallow in her misery. She also knew she wanted more out of life, and sought to grasp on to whatever additional happiness might come her way. The setting around Arkansas rice fields was unique and educational. I had no idea Arkansas produces rice and is still today has the highest rice yield in the U. I love it when casually dropped details in a historical novel make me turn to the Internet to check out more information.
Not surprising Morsi manages to inject drama into farming. She has a great ability to make us appreciate the efforts and ingenuity of the past, and bring them alive through great characters and touching romance. Aug 19, Saly rated it really liked it Shelves: The heroine is 29 and a spinster and plain looking so everyone thinks she doesn’t want romance in life but that is not the case, she yearns for family and romance and when a widower with seven kids declares his intention to court her, she is very happy.
Hattie never got a chance to experience romance because she was plain looking and when her father died she had to take care of her mother. Reed is 24 and engaged to a very beautiful wo Rating 3. Reed is 24 and engaged to a very beautiful woman. He has known Hattie all his life and wants to buy her farm.
When Hattie begins being courted he doesn’t like it at all. For some reason I ended up enjoying the book and not loving it. Oct 11, Marquise rated it really liked it Shelves: The story of well-to-do landowner Hattie Colfax and Reed Tyler, the farmhand she’s known for fifteen years is a sweet one. The heroine is a self-sufficient woman, who’s respected by everyone in town because of her charming personality, which however didn’t bring her any suitors to vie for her hand and she’s been a spinster for a long while despite her winsomeness.
Until she attracts the eye of a widowed farmed with seven children, desperately seeking for a mother for his little ones, that begins The story of well-to-do landowner Hattie Colfax and Reed Tyler, the farmhand she’s known for fifteen years is a sweet one. Until she attracts the eye of a widowed farmed with seven children, desperately seeking for a mother for his little ones, that begins to court her with marriage in mind. He, however, isn’t interested in her or in having a mother for his children.
He covets her land, the best one round those parts, and commits the indiscretion of telling everyone about that. Hattie, who’d agreed to the courtship out of a mix of desperation and longing, since she’s never attracted anyone and doesn’t want to miss her chance to have the family she wants, is hurt. The issues with the wooing Mr Drayton result in her developing deeper ties with another man, closer at hand, from whom she’ll finally know what true courtship entails and where it leads.
