A Bride For Clay is the fourth book in The Prescott Brides series by Cynthia Woolf. This is Clay and Gwen’s romantic journey. Convict Gwen commutes her sentence to be a mail-order bride. Clay is Gwen’s intended husband. Clay has sworn off love. There are fireworks of passion when Clay and Gwen meet, but Gwen’s past will resurface and threaten the couple’s burgeoning feelings.
Clay can see how devastating love can be and swears it off. Clay tries to protect his heart, but his journey to falling in love with Gwen is heartwarming. Gwen refuses to let her past define her. She makes Clay court her. I love that Gwen is insecure yet also knows her worth.
Clay and Gwen’s romance is more of a slow burn, whereas the action in the story is fast-paced. This is a different style compared to the other books in the series. I enjoyed the uniqueness. The medium-paced plot moved well; I’d like more scenes with Clay and Gwen. However, I understand the importance of the couple’s separation as it is pivotal to the plot. Cynthia Woolf is an expert at delivering a western romance with heart. A Bride For Clay is another excellent addition to The Prescott Brides series.
I voluntarily read and reviewed an advance copy of this book through the author. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
