Love At Any Cost by Julie Lessman


About this book

He’s looking to take care of his family. She’s looking to take care of her heart. Trouble is . . . love’s looking to take care of them both.

Cassidy McClare is a spunky Texas oil heiress without a fortune who would just as soon hogtie a man as look at him. Jilted by a fortune hunter, Cassidy travels west hoping a summer visit with her wealthy cousins in San Francisco will help her forget her heartache. But no sooner is she settled in beautiful California than Jamie McKenna, a handsome pauper looking to marry well, captures her heart. Can love prevail when Jamie discovers that Cassidy is poorer than he is? And can Cassidy ever learn to fully trust her heart to a man?


First of all, I love, love Julie Lessman’s books. I love her passion, her sense of humor, her never failing praises to God, and I love her writing style that keeps me on my toes for more from her!

In Love At Any Cost, I love how Jamie and Cassidy’s relationship starts off. Jamie wants Cassidy because she is rich and she could care less about pretty boy men. I really admire Jamie coming from a life of poverty, working himself into the successful businessman he now is, and all because he wants to give his mom and sister a better life. And how many people would be willing to go back into the poverty stricken places they lived to help others out? So many would forget about them, but not Jamie. But if he is ever going to have a relationship with Cassidy, one thing for sure is that he will have to God first in his life, and he is just not sure he can do that.

With characters that a bit quirky and a lot believable and realistic, Julie Lessman takes  together situations that are heartbreaking and full of disappointments, and weaves them together to create a story of love, forgiveness and redemption through faith in the Lord. I love how Julie always weaves Christ into the everyday lives of her characters, showing her readers how much He really cares.

I really encourage you to pick up a copy of this wonderful historical fiction to read and enjoy for yourself. Love At Any Cost is a must if you are a historical fiction buff!
