A review by taisie22
His Secondhand Wife, by Cheryl St. John


This is a Beauty and the Beast retelling in the old American West. Noah Cutter fetches the widow of his shiftless brother when he finds out about her and that she's pregnant. Kate was dazzled by Levi, but she's grateful for Noah's help as she has nowhere else to turn. Noah is scarred because of a childhood accident, but Kate doesn't mind, and eventually, they marry and fall in love. They still have to overcome some heartache, but it's a sweet story and well-told.
