    This may very well be my favorite thing Mrs. Perry has ever written. I am so in love with Marcus right now. He said the most romantic things I have ever heard. I was glad I was reading in bed or I would have swooned to the floor. This is a marriage of convenience and I don't know. I ju...

    If Not for Thee, by Amber Lynn Perry, is a beautifully written historical fiction novella that is as charming as it is irresistible. This Daughters of His Kingdom Novella is a definitive example that good things really do come in small packages. From the richly detailed setting, to the...

    When I think of Christian romance novels I don?t think of language like: desire, ache, hunger, thirst, satiate, primal masculine need. This novella was full of that and more. All those words were in reference to a woman the hero was basically forced to marry, and had no intention of ...

    Nice read This book was a bit of a surprise. I had had little interest in the author's previous books but this one kind of grabbed me and pulled me in. I started off reading it as a read before bed, time killer but eventually the story did pull me in and although the story line, par...

    Finally...a true love story! Love always prevails. I truly enjoyed the anticipation of what I thought was going to happen, to discover the trail of events were even better than imagined. So often, stories lead through twists and turns of misunderstanding and betrayal, all to be (or ...

    Love Ms. Perry's writing! Such tales of faith, overcoming and romance!!! Makes me wish at times to be in colonial times.....until I read of their hardship and then feel grateful once again to visit without having to remain. Well done, Ms. Perry! Really enjoyed the characters of Maggie ...

    Romance, clean; period This was a beautiful read. More of a 3.5 for me as a reader, but still a good read. Margaret's hidden fondness for Marcus, a childhood friend who is a bit above her station, was a lovely read. Both of them have reasons for quickly marrying. Their hearts are not ...

    Swept back into a different era Amber Lynn Perry has done it again. It was indeed a different world we could not relate to. A marriage out of necessity that brought Maggie and Marcus together. Too quickly this novella was over. Then again when you're so entrenched into the story tim...

    I loved the descriptive words to portray intimate moments. Really liked the characters but not the aunt n daughter (but you get that in the real world). Even though it was a novella book enough happened in the short story. Glad to know that Christian (cousin to Marcus) n Adam (cousin t...

    If Not for Thee, by Amber Lynn Perry, is a beautifully written historical fiction novella that is as charming as it is irresistible. This Daughters of His Kingdom Novella is a definitive example that good things really do come in small packages. From the richly detailed setting, to the...

    When I think of Christian romance novels I don?t think of language like: desire, ache, hunger, thirst, satiate, primal masculine need. This novella was full of that and more. All those words were in reference to a woman the hero was basically forced to marry, and had no intention of ...

    Nice read This book was a bit of a surprise. I had had little interest in the author's previous books but this one kind of grabbed me and pulled me in. I started off reading it as a read before bed, time killer but eventually the story did pull me in and although the story line, par...

    Finally...a true love story! Love always prevails. I truly enjoyed the anticipation of what I thought was going to happen, to discover the trail of events were even better than imagined. So often, stories lead through twists and turns of misunderstanding and betrayal, all to be (or ...

    Love Ms. Perry's writing! Such tales of faith, overcoming and romance!!! Makes me wish at times to be in colonial times.....until I read of their hardship and then feel grateful once again to visit without having to remain. Well done, Ms. Perry! Really enjoyed the characters of Maggie ...

    Romance, clean; period This was a beautiful read. More of a 3.5 for me as a reader, but still a good read. Margaret's hidden fondness for Marcus, a childhood friend who is a bit above her station, was a lovely read. Both of them have reasons for quickly marrying. Their hearts are not ...

    A living story Two people brought together in a way to take care of solving their individual problems. What a way to start a marriage. And the thread of war between the American patriots and the English army. I come from two line of soldiers who fought in the Revolutionary War. Th...

    Chopping wood, gives one how independent she has becomed, and not willing to give up. Choice to marry, at least she loved him, or go back to parents. For him to save his estate. They were already friends, but still had fears that hadn?t been shared, to trust and build, a love on that...

    Swept back into a different era Amber Lynn Perry has done it again. It was indeed a different world we could not relate to. A marriage out of necessity that brought Maggie and Marcus together. Too quickly this novella was over. Then again when you're so entrenched into the story tim...

    Amber Lynn Perry just keeps getting better and better! I absolutely LOVED Margaret and Marcus?s story. Want more of it but at the same time totally satisfied with it - I prefer novels to novellas but this one was so rich and kept me spell bound that it far exceeded my expectations!! ...

    Nice little novella There were quite a few characters in the beginning chapters of this book that I didn't think it would be possible for the author to pull together such a polished ending. Great little read!! Content: clean Language: Clean Religious: Yes--Christian. Not preac...

    This may very well be my favorite thing Mrs. Perry has ever written. I am so in love with Marcus right now. He said the most romantic things I have ever heard. I was glad I was reading in bed or I would have swooned to the floor. This is a marriage of convenience and I don't know. I ju...

    1.5 stars. This novella lacked character and plot development. Neither MC was very compelling and the villainess was one faceted too. I'm glad for a clean read, but the faith presented in this novella was superficial. FWIW, I read this as a standalone without having read the precedi...

    Despite the fact that this is "just" a love story, and a short one at that (marketed as a novella), I give this one five stars. Short love story though it may be, the writing is absolutely exquisite. I like to highlight beautifully phrased eloquence when reading fiction, and I highligh...

    ?You, my dear cousin, must find yourself a husband.? Hardly thirty minutes later, Margaret Main has only found herself in the middle of the road, covered in mud, barely escaping the hooves of an oncoming horse, ridden by none other than the prince of her girlish fancies, Marcus...

    1.5 stars. This novella lacked character and plot development. Neither MC was very compelling and the villainess was one faceted too. I'm glad for a clean read, but the faith presented in this novella was superficial. FWIW, I read this as a standalone without having read the precedi...

    There is so much to love about this novella! ...

    Despite the fact that this is "just" a love story, and a short one at that (marketed as a novella), I give this one five stars. Short love story though it may be, the writing is absolutely exquisite. I like to highlight beautifully phrased eloquence when reading fiction, and I highligh...

    This was a little too melodramatic for my taste. I can't stand when the entire conflict can be easily resolved if the characters would just sit down and actually talk to each other. ...

    What a wonderful story!! I definitely love Ambers writings. She manages to make you a part of her stories. I love reading stories about marriages of conveniences. I love watching God having a hand in the couple's everyday lives and yes eventually they do fall in love! "oh my" I can r...

    If Not For Thee is a novella from the Daughters of His Kingdom series. What a delight! I love this short story. Amber Lynn Perry has a way of making a reader feel as though they are part of the characters lives. So beautiful to be part of it. I am honored to have spent my time with Mar...

    If Not for Thee, by Amber Lynn Perry, is a beautifully written historical fiction novella that is as charming as it is irresistible. This Daughters of His Kingdom Novella is a definitive example that good things really do come in small packages. From the richly detailed setting, to the...

    When I think of Christian romance novels I don?t think of language like: desire, ache, hunger, thirst, satiate, primal masculine need. This novella was full of that and more. All those words were in reference to a woman the hero was basically forced to marry, and had no intention of ...

    Nice read This book was a bit of a surprise. I had had little interest in the author's previous books but this one kind of grabbed me and pulled me in. I started off reading it as a read before bed, time killer but eventually the story did pull me in and although the story line, par...

    Finally...a true love story! Love always prevails. I truly enjoyed the anticipation of what I thought was going to happen, to discover the trail of events were even better than imagined. So often, stories lead through twists and turns of misunderstanding and betrayal, all to be (or ...

    Love Ms. Perry's writing! Such tales of faith, overcoming and romance!!! Makes me wish at times to be in colonial times.....until I read of their hardship and then feel grateful once again to visit without having to remain. Well done, Ms. Perry! Really enjoyed the characters of Maggie ...

    Romance, clean; period This was a beautiful read. More of a 3.5 for me as a reader, but still a good read. Margaret's hidden fondness for Marcus, a childhood friend who is a bit above her station, was a lovely read. Both of them have reasons for quickly marrying. Their hearts are not ...

    A living story Two people brought together in a way to take care of solving their individual problems. What a way to start a marriage. And the thread of war between the American patriots and the English army. I come from two line of soldiers who fought in the Revolutionary War. Th...

    Chopping wood, gives one how independent she has becomed, and not willing to give up. Choice to marry, at least she loved him, or go back to parents. For him to save his estate. They were already friends, but still had fears that hadn?t been shared, to trust and build, a love on that...

    Swept back into a different era Amber Lynn Perry has done it again. It was indeed a different world we could not relate to. A marriage out of necessity that brought Maggie and Marcus together. Too quickly this novella was over. Then again when you're so entrenched into the story tim...

    Amber Lynn Perry just keeps getting better and better! I absolutely LOVED Margaret and Marcus?s story. Want more of it but at the same time totally satisfied with it - I prefer novels to novellas but this one was so rich and kept me spell bound that it far exceeded my expectations!! ...

    Nice little novella There were quite a few characters in the beginning chapters of this book that I didn't think it would be possible for the author to pull together such a polished ending. Great little read!! Content: clean Language: Clean Religious: Yes--Christian. Not preac...

    I loved the descriptive words to portray intimate moments. Really liked the characters but not the aunt n daughter (but you get that in the real world). Even though it was a novella book enough happened in the short story. Glad to know that Christian (cousin to Marcus) n Adam (cousin t...

    This may very well be my favorite thing Mrs. Perry has ever written. I am so in love with Marcus right now. He said the most romantic things I have ever heard. I was glad I was reading in bed or I would have swooned to the floor. This is a marriage of convenience and I don't know. I ju...

    Finally...a true love story! Love always prevails. I truly enjoyed the anticipation of what I thought was going to happen, to discover the trail of events were even better than imagined. So often, stories lead through twists and turns of misunderstanding and betrayal, all to be (or ...

    Love Ms. Perry's writing! Such tales of faith, overcoming and romance!!! Makes me wish at times to be in colonial times.....until I read of their hardship and then feel grateful once again to visit without having to remain. Well done, Ms. Perry! Really enjoyed the characters of Maggie ...

    What a sweet novella set in Colonial America! I liked that Margaret and Marcus already had a past friendship together so that when they are reunited they have a foundation to build on. What begins as a proposal of a marriage of convenience swiftly turns into more as attraction blooms a...

    Have you read any of the Daughters of His Kingdom books yet? I hadn't until I read this one. I have all the novels sitting waiting for me as I keep saying I'm going to read them. They were kindle freebies several months ago and I was super excited because I've been eyeing them for quit...

    This is a delightful Christmas Novella! A marriage of convenience between childhood friends brings unexpected outcome. Margaret wasn?t looking to get married, but it seemed that was the only way to keep her promise to her sister-in-law. Marcus had spent his youth avoiding the ent...

    So Sweet! I am such a fan of this author and this series. The characters were so endearing and I could envision everything playing out like a movie. This one was less historical than the rest I've read but I loved the simple love story and the tender emotions. The author mentions a ...

    This may very well be my favorite thing Mrs. Perry has ever written. I am so in love with Marcus right now. He said the most romantic things I have ever heard. I was glad I was reading in bed or I would have swooned to the floor. This is a marriage of convenience and I don't know. I ju...

    Ladies, get you fans ready. You're going to need one while you read this sweet novella! Marriage of convenience stories remain my favorite and this one doesn't disappoint. ...

    Quick read and quite interesting, with nice characters. I enjoyed it and look forward to reading more by this author. ...

    ?You, my dear cousin, must find yourself a husband.? Hardly thirty minutes later, Margaret Main has only found herself in the middle of the road, covered in mud, barely escaping the hooves of an oncoming horse, ridden by none other than the prince of her girlish fancies, Marcus...

    1.5 stars. This novella lacked character and plot development. Neither MC was very compelling and the villainess was one faceted too. I'm glad for a clean read, but the faith presented in this novella was superficial. FWIW, I read this as a standalone without having read the precedi...

    There is so much to love about this novella! ...

    Despite the fact that this is "just" a love story, and a short one at that (marketed as a novella), I give this one five stars. Short love story though it may be, the writing is absolutely exquisite. I like to highlight beautifully phrased eloquence when reading fiction, and I highligh...

    This was a little too melodramatic for my taste. I can't stand when the entire conflict can be easily resolved if the characters would just sit down and actually talk to each other. ...

    What a wonderful story!! I definitely love Ambers writings. She manages to make you a part of her stories. I love reading stories about marriages of conveniences. I love watching God having a hand in the couple's everyday lives and yes eventually they do fall in love! "oh my" I can r...

    If Not For Thee is a novella from the Daughters of His Kingdom series. What a delight! I love this short story. Amber Lynn Perry has a way of making a reader feel as though they are part of the characters lives. So beautiful to be part of it. I am honored to have spent my time with Mar...

    Romance, clean; period This was a beautiful read. More of a 3.5 for me as a reader, but still a good read. Margaret's hidden fondness for Marcus, a childhood friend who is a bit above her station, was a lovely read. Both of them have reasons for quickly marrying. Their hearts are not ...
