About this ebook

The author of Tainted Bride returns to the Regency era with the heartwarming story of how two people turn their sadly-ever-after romance around.

Elinor Burkenstock never believed in fairy tales. Sure, she's always been a fool for love—what woman isn't? But Elinor knows the difference between fiction and truth. Daydreams and reality. True love and false promises . . . Until the unthinkable happens, and Elinor's engagement is suddenly terminated and no one, least of all her fiancé, will tell her why.

Sir Michael Rollins's war-hero days seem far behind him when, after one last hurrah before his wedding, he gets shot and his injuries leave him in dire shape. He wants nothing more than to marry Elinor, the woman of his wildest dreams. But Elinor's father forbids it . . . and soon Michael is faced with a desperate choice: Spare Elinor a life with a broken man or risk everything to win her heart—until death do they part?

I really “got into” this story and felt it deeply. My only problem is the title because I do not think Elinor was a foolish bride at all. On the contrary, I think she was very, very smart (albeit perhaps unwittingly). I liked her strength in fighting the foolish system of parental involvement in pairing brides with bridegrooms and the foolish, tonnish gossip which guided the rules for women and men during the Regency era. At first I had less admiration for the hero, Michael, for his following all of the tonnish strictures about what is important and what is not relating to following his heart and his own instincts about Eloisa. I applauded when he “saw the light” and admired Elinor’s strength and fell in love with her all over again but for better reasons than before. I won’t give anything away with this review so I will just say that I really enjoyed this Regency romance and now want to read the rest of this series and this author’s back list.

I love a good period romance, and this was one of them. Strong character development and descriptive settings took you back in time to when the Ton was in charge. A classic love-gone-awry with the dastardly villain and triumphant hero will have you flipping pages, desperate to know more. Will she forgive him? Will the handsome newcomer offer for her hand? Will our hero save her in time? Only a turn of the page will tell.
Third-party review
Elinor and Michael are engaged. This engagement came from love rather than a business transaction, which is rare in their town. Michael is in the military and takes one last mission before their ...
