Honoria: The Forbidden Bride(2016)
(The seventh book in the Brides of Paradise Ranch series)
A novel by Merry Farmer
(Please note that this is the sweet version of His Forbidden Bride) Honoria Bonneville is dying. But she isn't about to let her diagnosis of consumption ruin what little time she has left. She's wasted her whole life catering to her obnoxious sisters and uncaring father, but no more. In a move to live the last days of her life on her own terms, she approaches the man she's loved from afar for years, local banker Solomon Templesmith, and asks him to marry her. But Honoria underestimates the scandal of a white woman marrying a black man... Solomon has admired Honoria from afar for ages, but has always held back from courting her, knowing the trouble it would cause. When Honoria comes to him, asking for his protection and friendship, he can't resist giving his heart to her... even though their union threatens to ruin the bank he's worked so hard to build up and possibly endanger his life. Their heartbreaking, trouble-making, perfect match seems doomed to be magnificent but short... until a shocking revelation changes everything... PLEASE BE ADVISED: Steam Level = Sweet If you would like to read this story with "scenes," check out His Forbidden Bride.
