Local preacher’s daughter and former missionary, Isabella Edwards had the perfect life all planned out.

Except her fiancé ran off to Las Vegas with his widowed ex-stepmother, the bookstore closed before it could open, and now… now, she’s pregnant after a one-weekend stand with hot Scot, Liam Stewart.

Desperate to keep her reputation, she accepts.  Her only hope is that they can put aside their differences and let love bring them together.

** Be Mine can be read as a stand-alone**
My Thoughts:

First off, I absolutely love the Holland Spring books. They have been my favorite contemporary series. And Marquita has mention that Be Mine is going to be the last of the Holland Spring books. Here's what I think of it *stick my fingers in my ears* "LALALALA". Honestly, I have grown to love all the characters in the series, and yes I would love see a couple of others have their own happy ending. I can hope that one day they may have a story somewhere else. Anyway, I guess I should focus my thoughts on Be Mine.

I enjoyed Be Mine immensely. You have two people who are polar opposites that have to come together, because of a baby. Granted they didn't have to get married, but Liam needed to find a wife and get her knocked up, so he could inherit his fortune to fix things. Then Bella shows up on his doorstep like a godsend, but he wouldn't look at that as divine intervention. After all, Liam believes it was pure coincident. Even as they are trying to get better aquatinted they still argue on ideology and politics it becomes a sore point in there marriage. So, Liam and Bella struggle to see eye-to-eye. And both are extremely stubborn that they don't appreciate the gift they have until it's almost too late.

Be Mine is a fantastic story that brings two people that shouldn't really be together, because they are so different. Somehow they manage at the end. They both have insecurities and use them unintentionally hurt each other. Each of them has to reflect on what was more important being right or working things out. Yes, Marquita did squeeze out some tears. So, if you are looking for two stubborn people who are attract to one another, but don't know how to deal with the other, you might consider Be Mine.

Yes, Be Mine can be read as a standalone.
