A Love Unexpected | Excerpt + Giveaway


My one and only goal has always been to make it to congress. I’ve got it all: the looks, the brains, the connections… Except I missed one glaring requirement: a wife.

The conservative voters of Kansas don’t trust an unmarried man. Which means I need a bride. Immediately.

The lovely Odette Hastings seems to fit the bill. She’s a wholesome small-town girl, and most importantly, in need of cash. I’ll give her the money to take care of her elderly parents, and she’ll be the political arm candy I need.

The only problem is Odette is a little too beautiful, a little too intelligent, and much too distracting. I have to keep my eye on the prize. Even when I’m starting to think there might be something I’d rather have more…

My mouth becomes dry, and the blood drains from my face as soon as I look at him. Has he somehow become better looking since I last saw him? I want to be unaffected by him and his stupid chiseled jaw, broad, muscled shoulders, and wavy, dark-blonde hair–the type I’d love to run my fingers through. But his handsomeness is incredibly distracting.

Pull yourself together, Odette! You’re not some silly teenager who’s never seen a handsome man before.

Madden’s glacial blue eyes are wide with shock. He probably realizes now that he saw me at the reunion and didn’t know who I was. The thought gives me a little jolt of satisfaction.


Leah writes romance full of witty banter and lovable characters. She spends most of her time writing... and also petting her Maine Coon.

Although she's a Kansas girl at heart, Leah is a proud Air Force spouse and currently resides in Northern California with her husband and three children.

Her parents always told her she lived in her own little world and was oblivious to reality. The real world was simply too boring for Leah, writing is how she enjoys sharing her little world with others.


One winner will receive a $25 Amazon gift card and a copy of A Love Unexpected (signed print to US, ebook outside the US)

Ends November 10, 2021
