We hope to be able to bring attention to some older titles (released 5 or more years ago) that may not be at the top of the current bestseller list, but still deserve a spot in your To-Be-Read pile.
"A Bride Most Begrudging"
Author: Deeanne Gist
Publication Date: 2005
When Lady Constance Morrow finds herself kidnapped and bound for the American colonies, she's sure she'll find a reasonable man who'll believe her story and send her back to England. Instead, she's "bought" by farmer Drew O'Connor. How long will it take before this marriage of convenience becomes very inconvenient for both of them? — Drew O'Connor isn't stirred by news of a ship full of brides. Still broken-hearted from the loss of his beloved, he only wants a maid to tend his house and care for his young sister.
What he ends up with is a wife, a feisty redhead who claims she is Lady Constance Morrow, daughter of an Earl, brought to America against her will. And she wants to go straight back to England as soon as she possibly can. She hasn't the foggiest notion how to cook, she dares to argue with her poor husband, and spends more time working on mathematical equations than housework. What kind of a wife is that? Drew's Christian forbearance is in for some testing.
Headstrong and intelligent, deeply moral but incredibly enticing, Constance turns what was supposed to be a marriage of convenience into something most inconvenient, indeed.This was the very first book that I read by Deeanne Gist. In fact, I'm pretty certain it was the first book she wrote. It was EXCELLENT! So excellent, that I've read every book she's written since. This is definitely worth adding to your TBR.

The aim is to showcase books that you've received but haven't yet got around to reading.
I think I'll take this and Book 2 of the series with me on vacation to read while sitting by the pool :)
I look forward to getting lots of great book ideas for my TBR from everyone's Throwbacks and Review Pile.
