The Amish Bride of Ice Mountain by Kelly Long

This book was sent to me to read and review, my thoughts and opinions are all my own and I was not influenced in any way. I absolutely love books on Marriages of Convenience. As a child I use to read Grace Livingston Hill, Emily Loring and later Glenna Finney. I loved the whole concept and the tensions that became overwhelming as they fell in love and didn't think the other one wanted to make the marriage real. I also love Amish books so this one is a no brainer for me. I loved it, and I'm sure you will too.

Professor Jude Lyons has always been fascinated by the Amish. Now to finish his doctorate he has come to Ice Mountain to write a book on the Mountain Amish. These Amish live a life even further behind the Amish in Pennsylvania. A young girl helps him with his work and as the day approaches for him to leave he loses control and kisses the maiden. Unfortunately they are seen by her brother in a compromising situation. Later Jude is met by the girl, her father, brothers, and the bishop; he is told he must do the honorable thing. Suffering from low blood sugar, he passes out and wakes to find the wedding is already taking place. He is forced to; endure Grossmuder May who comes to bless his marriage bed, save his wife from an attempted rape, share her bed because of her great fear, and then go throughout the community so his wife can say good bye. He is determined keep his hands off her, so he can bring her home and can get an annulment in the Spring. She doesn't belong in his dysfunctional life.

Mary King gave into her feelings when she allowed the professor to kiss her. Now that she's married to him and is forced to leave her beloved mountain community.
