I am thrilled to welcome Linda Lael Miller to Book Reviews & More by Kathy. She is one of my all time favorite authors and I am absolutely delighted to be stop on her virtual tour for her latest release, The Marriage Pact.
Q: It’s often said that choosing whom you’ll marry is the most important decision of your life. Do you believe that? Do you think your characters believe that?
A: I absolutely believe choosing a marriage partner is incredibly important, and so do my characters. Marriage is essentially a sacred promise two people make to each other, and should be honored as such.
Q: What is your favorite scene from the book?
A: I love the opening scene, when Tripp Galloway, the hero, ‘kidnaps’ the heroine, Hadleigh Stevens, seconds before she can say “I do” to the wrong man.
Q: If you could give one piece to newlyweds for a happy life together, what would it be?
A: Tell the truth, no matter what. Trust is everything in a relationship, and love will not survive long without it.
Q: Can you give us a sneak peak on what is next to come? We’ve heard there are two more Bliss County books after THE MARRIAGE PACT.
A:The next two books are: THE MARRIAGE CHARM, featuring Melody Nolan, Hadleigh’s friend and a participant in the marriage pact, and Spencer “Spence” Hogan, the local police chief. They were deeply in love at one time, but things fell apart and they went their separate ways. Now, the attraction remains, but both Spence and Melody are convinced they’re wrong for each other.
This will be followed by THE MARRIAGE SEASON, the story of Becca “Bex” Stuart, the third member of the marriage-pact bunch, and a newcomer to Mustang Creek, sexy widower Tate Calder with two beguiling children and a singular determination to remain single.

The women of Bliss County are ready to meet the men of their dreams! See how it all begins in this enthralling new series by #1 New York Times bestselling author Linda Lael Miller
Ten years ago, Hadleigh Stevens was eighteen and this close to saying “I do,” when Tripp Galloway interrupted her walk down the aisle. Now that she’s recovered from her youthful mistake and Tripp’s interference, Hadleigh and her single friends form a marriage pact. She doesn’t expect Tripp to meddle with her new plan to find Mr. Right—or to discover that she’s more attracted to him than ever!
Divorced and eager to reconnect with his cowboy roots, Tripp returns to Bliss County to save his ailing father’s ranch. He’s not looking for another wife—certainly not his best friend’s little sister. But he’s never been able to forget Hadleigh. And this time, if she ends up in his arms, he won’t be walking away!
