The Bridal Arrangement by Cindy Gerard
Silhouette Desire # 1392 - September 2001

Lee came to the Shiloh Ranch as a foster child and stayed. When he was 15, his foster mother got pregnant with a miracle child, Ellie. Until Lee went off to college, he and Ellie were brother and sister. Ellie's just turned 20, her mother passed away a few years ago, and recently her father. Lee's come back to the ranch to fulfill a promise he made to his step-father, to always look after Ellie and to make the rundown ranch something again. Lee's come home to marry Ellie, something Ellie has dreamed of for years. And Lee wants very much for the marriage to work but he's scared to death because Ellie has epilepsy and he's not sure how to be her husband.

This was a charming story. I'm not sure if this is my first from Ms.Gerard, but I'm sure it won't be my last! Ellie's spirit is as bright as the sun in the sky and she dazzles Lee with her country good sense and how lovely she is. Lee is petrified that he's rushed her into a marriage she's not ready for. This was an exceptional read. Ms Gerard dealt very well with Ellie's illness and raised real concerns for Lee. This was one of those feel good stories that you can reach for again and again

Thirty three year old Lee Savage has come back to Montana, from Texas, to claim what was his -Shiloh Ranch and the previous owners daughter, Ellie.
Ellie Shiloh, at nineteen, is the most up-beat younster, fast becoming a woman, that any of us have ever heard of. She has developed an inner strength to deal with her medical problem but has remained so innocent that she took Lee's breath away.
He was a man destined not to give or share love with any woman, until Ellie taught him how to love. I guess sometimes it takes a little fear to teach a man what he could have and lose.
Most wonderful, magical attitude I have ever read in a main character that touches your heart.
Highly recommended - only the story was too short!

The Bridal Arrangement Oct. 25 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
THIS BOOK IS PURE MAGIC !!! Not only is this a prime example of Cindy Gerard's great romantic writing, but this book will actually very likely change your life. The heroine is a sheltered young lady with a chronic medical condition that could affect any person's entire outlook on life, yet her courage and spirit and optimism and belief in life and people will fill the reader with heart bursting emotion and a belief in our fellow man. Something we can all use right now. It is a sure bet that you will never look at some of your friends and associates the same way again. I challenge you to read this book and not become a better person for it ... and to not believe that it is one of the most magical books you have ever enjoyed !!! Lee and Ellie will feel like special members of your family.

Satisfying May 19 2010
By RomReader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Sheltered 19-year-old who suffers from epileptic seizures is excited about marrying her longtime love who was adopted by her recently-deceased parents before she was born & who agreed to marry her out of obligation to her dad. Both are attracted to each other but reticent about their fears about not being good enough for each other.

This Gerard book hits the right spot. The romance, sexual chemistry, love scenes, & characterization were all good. I read it within an hour. Heroine's struggles & attitude toward her epilepsy was heart-tugging. The change in Hero due to his awe at heroine's plight was endearing.

Highly recommended.

Epilepy is NOT a disease! Dec 26 2013
By Aislinn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
If I could have given this book 0 stars I would! The heroine is a weak, whining, dependent thing. The hero is a self-absorbed, idiotic wimp!

The entire premise of this book is a fragile girl whos life has been ruined by epilepsy and she has to be "taken care of".
The "hero" does not understand epilepsy and has to wait for her to tell him about it. He isn't intelligent enough to just cruise the internet and learn about it! Ever heard of WebMD or the National Epilepsy Foundation?? Also, the ignorance of utilizing a small town doctor for a brain disorder is rediculus! Ever heard of a Neurologist or better an Epileptologist? If this girl has so many breakthrough seizures that she cannot have a normal life and needs to be "taken care of" then evidentally she is on the wrong drug cocktail and should stop whining and do what is needed to help herself! In addition, I believe the book says she only has partial seizures and Ms. Gerard actually brings up the possiblity of surgery! You also mention Anticonvulsants, Phenytoin, Phenobarbital. Do you know what these even are? Do you really believe that those are the only medications available to an epileptic? Do you know the natural foods and herbs that can and should be part of a drug cocktail? Research!!!

Epilepsy is considered a neurological condition. It is NOT a disease! There are many types of seizures and 1 in 26 people have epilepsy in the US alone. Research!

Either Ms. Gerard has epilepsy and does not understand what she has or she doesn't have epilepsy and has NO idea how to research for her books!

Epileptics are not "fragile" creatures who need to be "taken care of"! They are not helpless creatures who cannot have a normal life!

I have Tonic-clonic, absence, atonic, myoclonic, complex and simple partial, and nocturnal epilepsy. So I know of what I preach! I have NEVER been helpless and needed to be taken care of! I have worked with my Epileptologist to ensure I have the correct drug cocktail and I have annual testing to ensure the drug cocktail is still effective. I am involved in groups full of people with epilepsy and none of them need to be "taken care of" - they take care of themselves!

Also, to state that there are "some" laws regarding driving eligibility; once again do some research and know what you are talking about before you write!

Do research on your subject matter in the future before you write tripe that is offensive and insulting to a very large portion of the people on this planet!

Amazon had better give me a refund on this so called book!
