    One thought on “Taming the Bride”

    1. I liked it! That is despite the fact I thought Prudence was a bit spoiled and unreasonable and that Alfred was sort of disgusting for wanting to pick up a hooker (I know, I know the time period and all that but I can't get over my modern-day abhorence). The last star was left off mostly because I felt like the villain never got what he deserved and it was all tied up too quickly.But despite all those glaring flaws, I enjoyed this book although the first in the series remains my favorite.

    2. Another gem from a great authorI love historical romances however I like them to have an interesting storyline, characters with depth and sizzling romance. This book was no exception. Really enjoyable romance/thriller.

    3. Somehow felt the book was all over the place. I thought that the heroine though "intelligent" was actually foolish and headstrong. I couldn't call the hero a hero He was initially cruel and then suddenly he became good Felt his services in the army were just added so that they could explain his agility in climbing pipes. The villain did not get what he deserved, even though his actions were described in great detail. I somehow felt he got out very easy. I felt that the author confused what booki [...]

    4. I loved this story so much.Prudence is such a strong willed and lovable character and what she gets up to just lands her in trouble especially with Alfred who expects her to act very differently to the way she does.Wonderful supporting characters in Dolly and Mungo, her faithful helpers and in Lady Weston, the aunt who brought Alfred and his brothers up.Prudence and Alfred fall in love and share a few exciting adventures while their love for each other grows and grows.The story is very easy to r [...]

    5. Love itI enjoyed reading Alfred's story. So much action, independence, and a touch of humor always makes a great book. I loved the Aunt, she was a real spitfire. Definitely a must read, get your copies today

    6. Alfred is looking for some fun however he is accosted and humiliated by Prudence a lady who is trying to save women from a horrible fate. This was interesting story and I enjoyed it a great deal. I just wish that Alfred was less of a jerk in the beginning. Then we had Prudence being annoying and denying a great guy.

    7. DNF 10% The premice looked promising . I should have been wary with the book title although the male protagonist is throughly an ASSHOLE !
