No one steps on Archer land. Not if they value their life. But when Meredith Hayes overhears a lethal plot to burn the Archer brothers off their ranch, a twelve-year-old debt compels her to take the risk.

Fourteen years of constant vigilance hardens a man. Yet when Travis Archer confronts a female trespasser with the same vivid blue eyes as the courageous young girl he once aided, he can't bring himself to send her away. And when an act of sacrifice leaves her injured and her reputation in shreds, gratitude and guilt send him riding to her rescue once again.

Publisher's Description

Lighthearted Historical Romance From a Rising Star

No one steps on Archer land. Not if they value their life. But when Meredith Hayes overhears a lethal plot to burn the Archer brothers off their ranch, a twelve-year-old debt compels her to take the risk.

Fourteen years of constant vigilance hardens a man. Yet when Travis Archer confronts a female trespasser with the same vivid blue eyes as the courageous young girl he once aided, he can't bring himself to send her away. And when an act of sacrifice leaves her injured and her reputation in shreds, gratitude and guilt send him riding to her rescue once again.

Four brothers. Four straws. One bride. Despite the fact that Travis is no longer the gallant youth Meredith once dreamed about, she determines to stand by his side against the enemy that threatens them both. But will love ever be hers? Or will Travis always see her merely as a short-straw bride?

    I can't believe it took me so long to pick up this wonderful book to read! I'd read the other stories in the Archer Brothers series and loved them...and now I have a new favorite! This story was so much fun from beginning to end. It was packed with great characters, lots of emotion, and terrific romantic tension between the two main characters, Travis and Meredith. I highly recommend Short-Straw Bride.

    I love, love, love this book! Ive read it several times and it never gets old. When I read it the first time I couldnt put it down to even eat or sleep! This book is definitely a feel good book. It definitely had its cheesy parts but I really enjoyed it. For me, the best part about it was the characters. Karen Witemeyer did an amazing job, it felt like I knew them. This isnt your average historical book, and thats one of the reasons I liked it so much. As I said before, this book isnt the most realistic, but if you want something that makes you sigh dreamily at the end, then this book is perfect for you. I know this is a short review, but I have nothing more to say! I highly recommend this book.

    I have forgotten how enjoyable Karen Witemeyer's books can be! I've read several of her books (before I started my blog), so I had an idea of what to expect, but this was fantastic! The story was fast-paced and exciting. I had a hard time putting the book down.

    Travis Archer and Meredith Hayes make a great hero/heroine pair. Both characters are well written and full of depth. Travis has been in charge of his three brothers for as long as he can remember. He is the take charge kind of guy that I can respect. His loyalty and love for his family runs deep. Meredith is sweet, caring, and gentle until you get her dander up. Then she's full of spirit and fire! Watching their romance grow in the midst of trouble was fun and sweet.

    Karen Witemeyer artfully weaves in a deep truth throughout the story: trust. Both Meredith and Travis learn that putting your trust in God is the only way to really live a happy and content life. For Travis, that burden of protecting his family is not one he easily gets rid of. For Meredith, the patience that comes along with trusting the Lord knows what He's doing is harder than she thought. Both characters also have to learn that we, as Christians, are called to bear one another's burdens.

    Overall, I highly enjoyed this book and look forward to reading the next book in the Archer Brothers series. After all, I have to know what happens to Crockett, Jim, and Neill!
