Goodnight Kisses by Wilhelmina Stolen

This book is currently free on Amazon.

Fearing she carries her mother’s curse of marriage, nineteen-year-old Eleanor Mackenna swore never to vow herself into matrimonial bondage. Nuptials aren’t needed where true love is concerned. A concept she is sure a man like McCrea Coldiron would agree with. The town gossip has him pegged as a heart breaker, but Eleanor knows a different side to McCrea. And years of loving him without seeing his affection returned has made her desperate enough to ask him for advice on seducing a man.

McCrea isn’t proud of his reputation as a brawler and a womanizer. As a teenager the rumors were funny, now they may cost him the land he has worked so hard for. Chatty little Eleanor Mackenna has been chasing his spurs for years and ignoring her was easy to do until she grew up. A beautiful face and curves in all the right places made her hard to resist, and when his granddad lays down an ultimatum to make her his wife, McCrea offers her a first class lesson in seduction.

My Review:
4 of 5 stars
I received this book for an honest review. 
While growing up the people we love are our examples of what relationships should be. So when Eleanore grew up watching her mother in failed marriage , she felt she would go through the same thing. So she decided she could have love but the big 'I Do' was not for her. 
McCrea is called a womanizer and as an adult, he hates the reputation. He wants people to see the man he is not the troublemaker he was. 
Eleanore has crushed on McCrea since they were kids and he easily brushed it off...but now she is a beautiful woman any man would be dead not to want. And when his granddad tells him  to marry or lose the land he was to inherit, he decides to make an arrangement with Eleanore. 
Marry for a year and then they divorce, going their separate ways and he would pay her a good price. 
Eleanore, hurt that her crush wants to use her, says no and leaves for college heartbroken. McCrea doesn't understand what he did wrong. Will he get his head out of his ass and chase her? Or be a moron forever?
This book was well written. The troupe is an oldie, but a goodie and I really enjoyed my time getting lost in the story. Following these two as they learn more about theirselves and each other is a great experience. The development is detailed, but doesn't bog down the read.
