  6. I love marriage of convenience and mail-order bride stories, too. It’s always fun to see two complete strangers gradually fall in love. My favorite to date is Laverne Spencer’s “Morning Glory,” which takes place in the 1930’s. A young widow, needing help on the farm, hires a man to be her husband, and of course they eventually fall in love.

  7. I enjoy all Christian fiction. I’ve read a few Marriage of convenience fiction stories. Mostly I’m into reading Amish fiction. I have read many marriage of convenience in this genre. For example an Amish man married with say 4 disposes his wife. After a decent time of morning he will often marry a younger girl to keep his house and raise his children. Often in these stories the couple may fall in love after they’ve been married for a while.

  8. I don’t need to be in the contest because I already have the book, but I’d like to say why I love marriage of convenience stories–I think they reflect a reality about marriage. The couples go into the marriage with low expectations about love but committed to making the arrangement work. Their love deepens as they learn about each other at close quarters and become friends first.

    Similarly, a good marriage is built on commitment, not building up your expectations to ridiculous levels, and working on friendship as well as the physical relationship. I’m looking forward to reading these stories!
