Committed to running the shoddy Lazy Jazy ranch left by her granddaddy, Carrie Smith is eager to try her own ideas on saving the place. And she doesn't need a man to help her. When handsome cowboy Jed Jones arrives without warning in Sweetcream, Texas, he bears documents that proclaim they must wed by midnight or lose the Jazy. Both fearful of relinquishing their heritage, the two exchange vows and steaming kisses... all the while Carrie seeks an annulment even as she falls head over heels. Jed, meanwhile, intends to discover the mystery of his own pa's death all the while he falls for Carrie even faster and harder.
Midnight Bride is about Carrie Smith's grandfather recently passed away now she's the only one looking after her land. But one day out of know where she meets Jed Jones, a man who has a document stating that half of her land is his, and that they must get married by Midnight if they wish to keep their land. Carrie doesn't trust this at all, even though the document seemed real and the judge and sheriff approved it. She still doesn't believe it. And Jed said they would only be married by name, so they have to make it look real to others but they each know it isn't. She tries everything she can to prove that Jed isn't who he says, and that everything he's said about her family is lies. Jed on the other hand is instantly attracted to Carrie, and wants to make her his wife in every way possible. He will stop at nothing to win her over, and make her love him. But people around them want to take the land away from them, so they have a lot of things to go through before they can live happily ever after. This book was okay. I got extremely frustrated with Carrie throughout the whole book. The way she wouldn't ever believe anything that Jed said was truly annoying. And the fact that she kept saying she was going to end the marriage, but yet didn't actually do a whole lot to end it at all. I truly couldn't stand her at all, and it made me dislike the book. The other character's in the book were okay though. I didn't really have any problems with them. This book isn't something I will read again, but it was okay at the time.
