"This story really pushed hard on the theme of just what a marriage should look like, with both partners helping and respecting each other while still encouraging the other to grow."
I Am A Reader - Brides for the Frontier
Yes, I know, my series is called Frontier Bachelors, but the whole idea started with brides, and a story I heard when I was a girl. You see, the Civil War left thousands of East Coast women without fathers, husbands, and sweethearts, while in pioneer Seattle, loggers, miners, and farmers were pining away for wives. An enterprising young fellow named Asa Mercer decided to unite the two factions. He made two trips, the first time bringing a dozen women to Seattle, the second time bringing around sixty. Nearly all of those women married and became the founding mothers of the Territory.

Getting Your Read On - Review
"This was such a sweet, gentle romance novel. It was filled with charming characters and scenes that warmed my heart. This is the fifth novel in this series but it can easily stand alone."
Rockin' Book Reviews - Review
"This was such a twist of the normal arrangements for that time period. . . . It was refreshingly clean. There was slight humor and the various characters created were so real and interesting. The scenes described were easily visualized."
Falling Leaves - Excerpt
“Mr. Wallin,” she said, the sound of her thundering heart nearly eclipsing her voice in her ears. “I’m Nora Underhill, and I have a proposal for you.”
He frowned. His brows were a shade darker than his short, light-brown hair. They made a firm slash across his tanned skin. Those green eyes were like chips of jade as he gazed down at her. “A proposal?”
“Yes,” she said, amazed at her own audacity. “An actual proposal. Simon Wallin, I want you to marry me.”

"Watching sweet, hard-working, gentle characters make their ways in life, find satisfaction and happiness, and even love, is so heartening. This book is like drinking a mug of thick, chocolatey hot chocolate on a cold winter's day--it'll warm your insides, melt your heart, and leave you with a contented feeling."
Reading Is My SuperPower - Review
"Fans of marriage-of-convenience stories will find much to love about A Convenient Christmas Wedding. (Plus – isn’t that cover so pretty?!?) Nora is easy to love, and Simon is one of those deliciously brooding-but-good-hearted heroes we all adore. . . . Regina Scott sweeps you away to the Pacific Northwest frontier and gives you a front row seat to a sweet and Christmasy story to cozy up with on a cold winter’s night."

Bookworm Lisa - Review
"This is a feel good book that is perfect for the holidays. . . . While this book starts out as a marriage of convenience, it doesn't take long for the reader to see that they are perfect for each other and it needs to become a romantic relationship. I loved how they seem to find mishap after mishap that throws them into situations where they learn to trust each other and develop affection."
Bookworm Nation - Five Reasons to Agree to a Marriage of Convenience
I wrote more than a dozen Regency romances before I ever wrote my first marriage of convenience story. Since joining the Love Inspired Historical family, however, I find myself embracing the idea. A marriage of convenience is when two people agree to marry with no commitment of love. What makes a good marriage of convenience story is when love starts to grow, despite circumstances and protests from the bride and groom’s hearts.

Singing Librarian Books - Review
"Regina Scott has written a cute and sweet holiday romance in her fifth book in the Frontier Bachelors Series, A Convenient Christmas Wedding. . . . I would recommend this novel to readers that have enjoyed Scott’s previous work, as well as those that want a little historical holiday romance."
Christian Chick's Thoughts - Review
"I really enjoyed reading Nora and Simon's story. It reminded me a bit of Seven Brides for Seven Brothers—no, the plot isn't too similar, but the setting is. And I could easily see the Wallin boys fitting in with Seven Brides'Pontipee brothers. . . . I really enjoyed A Convenient Christmas Wedding—it's the perfect book for a winter night."
Tell Tale Book Reviews - How to Have a Pioneer Christmas
For one thing, Christmas celebrations didn’t start until very close to the actual day. Oh, there might be some scurrying around making presents—a hand-knit scarf for Uncle Joe, a new bonnet for the baby—and the goose would have to be plucked days before it went into the oven, but often even the decorating didn’t happen until Christmas Eve.
