His future was set until a thief stole his heart.
All of Clyde’s Corner, Montana, knows local dandy Chris Ramsey will marry Trix Stubben, young widow and heir to the richest ranch in the area. But one woman isn’t too keen on the idea. Mabe Crassen wants to get her hands on that ranch, so she sets her older son to court Trix, and her younger son, Jeremy, to distract Chris and lure him astray.
Jeremy Crassen thinks his mother’s scheme is crazy. But he wants desperately to go off to college, which Mabe will agree to—if he seduces Chris. How will shy, virginal, secretly gay Jeremy attract Chris, who seems determined to do the right thing and marry Trix? Jeremy can’t compete with a rich female widow. Or can he?
The Stolen Suitor was reviewed by Karen earlier this year. Check it out HERE.
I have a rather different opinion of the book than Karen. I never really connected to the main characters of Chris and Jeremy. I’ve enjoyed Eli Easton’s writing in the past and that wasn’t my issue here.
Like Karen said in her review the story is soap opera-ish and I normally love those types of stories, but it didn’t work for me here. The setting felt like a step back in time where a widow needed to remarry instead of remaining single for as long as she chose. I think that was because it’s part of the Dreamspun Desires line. This was the first of the line that I’ve read or listened too and think my meh feeling for the book is because the style just isn’t my thing.
If you’re a fan of the Harlequin style of books in the Dreamspun Desires line I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this book.
I’m not a big fan of Rusty Topsfield as a narrator. It’s not that he’s bad, but his voice doesn’t capture me or pull me in.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the audiobook of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
