Webber Kincaid and Tristan Moreau have returned from their business trip engaged but trouble’s looming on the horizon for Kincaid International Corporation and Webber, as its CEO. While away they discovered some improper business dealing by KIC’s chief financial officer. It puts Webber in a bad position that could ruin his reputation and the only choice they have is to notify the board of directors and the government. While undergoing an investigation by the Securities and Exchange Commission and Department of Justice, they stand firm and plan their wedding, certain Webber will be cleared of all wrongdoing. But even love can’t prepare them for all the unexpected twists coming and if their new married life is going to survive, they’ll have to work together.

An Unconventional Union is the second release in Scotty Cade’s Unconventional series and because it follows the ongoing relationship of Webber and Tristan, the books should be read in order. The story picks up where the previous release left off but does a good job of interjecting bits of information if you haven’t read An Unconventional Courtship. Its done well—making it easy for the unfamiliar reader, but without making it annoying for those who have. Well done Mr. Cade.

I enjoyed this one. It’s a well-written love story between our two guys but has enough twists, sadness and pain to keep it from becoming sappy. The pace is smooth; it has great descriptions and numerous secondary characters that really round out the plot. I particularly liked seeing more of Deanne as she goes through her pregnancy but be prepared with some tissues near the end. The problems with Nathan, the corrupt CFO isn’t over, so look to see more of him as the investigation with SEC and DOJ progress.

I guess my complaint about the story revolves around the investigations and how quickly they’re resolve. The scenes regarding the wedding preparations and the ceremony are highly descriptive and nicely done—you can even expect some action in the garden. Well, I guess that’s it for now. I don’t know when the next will be released but I can’t wait for Webber and Tristan’s story to continue.
