I anxiously waited for the next book in the Kincaid Series. I have to say The Most Unsuitable Courtship was even better than I expected! And believe me; I expect a lot from Caroline Clemmons. Her stories have never failed to meet my expectations.
Rena witnesses the brutal murder of her elderly husband who had saved and protected her from the time of her father’s death. She loved her elderly husband the way one would love a wise and protective grandfather, in fact that was the nature of their relationship. When Federal Marshal Storm Kincaid arrived just after the murder of her husband and destruction of her home place Rena knew, with his help, she would be able to avenge her husband’s murder.
Though Federal Marshal Kincaid opposed her decision, he realized if she did not travel with him she would set out to complete her errand of vengeance on her own and would most assuredly be killed.
With this the two set out, one to seek vengeance, the other to bring justice. What the two experience range from fear to pain to horror to hope to expectation to love and happiness. In short, a roller coaster ride of emotion and adventure that leaves the reader counting the days till the next story in the Kincaid Series.
I highly recommend this book. All the books in the Kincaid Series are wonderful reads. You need not think you have to start from the beginning to read the series. Each book is a story in itself. It is great fun to read them in order because there will be reintroduction to characters you have already read about and fallen in love with, but it is not necessary to enjoy the story in hand.
I hope you read and enjoy the Kincaid stories as much as I do.

CAROLINE CLEMMONS: THE TEXAN’S IRISH BRIDE
Dallas raised his gaze where Aoife directed. Four girls danced, but only one drew his attention. Shoulders straight and feet flying, Cenora met his glance, then broke away from the other dancers to perform only a few yards from him. Catcalls sounded nearby. She ignored them but gave a toss of her head. Her hair had come unbound, and her act sent her fiery hair a whirl. Light from the blazing campfire cast an aura-like radiance around her. Lantern glow overhead reflected her eyes sparked with merriment, challenge, and something mysterious he couldn’t name. No longer the delicate china doll, her wild beauty called to him, mesmerized him. He visualized her brilliant tresses spread across a pillow, her milky skin bared only for him. His body responded, and savage desire shot through him. Surprised at the depth of his reaction, he wondered if her performance in bed would parallel the unbridled nature of her dance. Good Lord, could this glorious woman truly be his wife? And if so, heaven help him, what on earth was he to do with her?

While Joanna is a good-looking woman who’s no dummy, she’s the most uncompromising and infuriating female Dalton has ever met. Still, he can’t keep from admiring her caring nature and common sense, not to mention her great body. The dumbest thing he could do is try to lure her into his bed, but he’s never been smart when it comes to women.
Joanna Walsh is known for trying to fix other people’s problems. Believing the oldest Parker son could and should help his mother, Joanna is the one who called him to come back to town. And that turned out to be the biggest mistake she’s ever made. Once the rugged, self-assured Dalton sees her hens and her free-range egg operation, he’s determined they have to go. Yet, through their daily conflicts, Joanna starts to see that while he’s seen and photographed the worst of humanity and grown a hard shell, deep down he’s a softie hiding a damaged heart.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Written by Patricia Reding
I was given a free copy of Oathtaker in exchange for an honest review.
I give this story 5 stars.
If you enjoyed Lord of the Rings, you will love this story. Oathtaker is well written, full of twists and turns, adventure, dangers, triumphs, and magic both good and evil. The characters are well thought out and believable. The plot is flawless.
Have you ever read a book that had all the fine points worked out but you just could not get into the story? Well, this is not that book! When you pick up this book be prepared to fall in love with Mara as she battles her way through the maze of evil and magic to protect her two tiny wards.
Mara is an Oathtaker. The Oathtakers are a sect dedicated to the protection of The Select who are the leaders and moral backbone of the society. Though young and untested Mara is well trained and possesses a strong devotion to The Good One. When she is “called” she does not hesitate to take the “Oath” that will bind her to two infants. These two tiny, as in newborn infants, will grow up to be instrumental in the survival of all that is good in their world.
Mara meets up with Dixon, another Oathtaker. Dixon is the Oathtaker to the mother of the infants. When the mother dies in childbirth he is released from his oath. Knowing the significance of the two infants, he binds himself with a lesser oath to them. Together, Mara and Dixon will strike out on a journey to save the babies from the evil that would kill them and rob the world of all peace and goodness.
Along with the few power-endowed tools of her trade, Mara soon learns of her attendant magic. This is magic that is granted to an Oathtaker when needed to protect her ward. Mara gathers a small but unique army of followers willing to take an oath to protect the babies.
The journey ahead, for this small group, is filled with twists and turns, as Mara and the others must out wit the evil and dangerous powers that threaten the babies and the world. This story contains adventure, intrigue, battles to the death, and of course love.
Will Mara be able to protect both of the babies? Will she be able to save the man she loves and still keep the babies safe? Will she be able to defeat the ancient power that threatens to cast her world into darkness? You will just have to read the book to find out.
Ms. Reding is truly a gifted storyteller. This is not a book to miss. I am anxiously waiting for “Select” the next book in this series.
OATHTAKER is available at Amazon
