DREAMS CAN COME TRUE—BUT THE PRICE IS STEEP in this short story from THE TAKER saga
Evangeline McDougal is the luckiest girl in St. Andrew, Maine. She’s to wed Jonathan St. Andrew, eldest son of the town’s founder and heir to the timber business that has made the St. Andrews one of the wealthiest families in the state.
Nor does it hurt that her bridegroom is so very handsome. Irresistible, in fact. And when rumors fly about her husband-to-be and several of the other girls in town. . . . What is Evangeline to think? There is a price to pay for her marriage to Jonathan, but surely it is worth the cost.
If you don’t have a Kindle, not to worry. You can read it on any smart phone or computer just by downloading the Kindle app. Here is the link for your free copy of The Marriage Price. Please note that all of Katsu’s stories and books are for mature audiences. I’ve read it, and I loved seeing the events leading up to the marriage of Jonathan and Evangeline, this time through Evangeline’s eyes. Let’s help Alma try to push The Marriage Price into Amazon’s top 100! And if you are intrigued by the short story, please consider reading her other books.
