A-Z Wednesday!

Vicki @ Reading at the Beach hosts a weekly meme that introduces different books whose titles feature a different letter of the alphabet each week. It's a great way to find new books to read or rediscover some classics.

Here are the rules:

~ Post a photo of the cover and a short synopsis of the book, sites like Amazon.com and bn.com are great places to find cover blurbs!
~ Post a link to where the book is available for purchase.
~ Please swing by and leave a comment along with your A-Z post on Vicki's blog and be sure to visit the blogs of others to see their selection of the week!
~ Add a link to your review of the book if you have one.

This week the letter is "R."

Ransome's Honor (Book 1, The Ransome Trilogy)
by Kaye Dacus
Copyright 2009
Harvest House Publishers
345 pages
ISBN: 978-0-7369-2753-6

Preview from Amazon:

July 1814. The war with France has ended, and Captain William Ransome, known for never letting women aboard his ship, has returned to Portsmouth, England. Julia Witherington, considered an old-maid at 29, discovers that she must marry immediately to receive a large dowry. Julia knows that the only man she doesn’t want to marry is William Ransome. And the only man her father will approve of is…William Ransome.

When the couple strikes a financial deal to feign marriage for one year, the adventure begins. These stubborn people face humorous and hard situations that reveal what else they have in common—a growing affection for one another. This intriguing tale of faith and loyalty is a wonderful new offering for readers of all genres.
