About this ebook

The Brides of Bath series, Book 1

For six long years Thomas Moreland has dreamed of the beautiful young noblewoman who rescued him from death. While amassing his fortune in India, not a day passed he did not recall Felicity's fair loveliness, did not recall the silken tones of her sweet voice, did not desire to possess her. 

Now a widow, Felicity Harrison does not recognize the handsome nabob as the young man left for dead by highwayman years earlier. Though she wants nothing more than to snub the arrogant man who promises to rescue her family from financial ruin in exchange for presenting his sister to Society, she cannot snub him. She must force herself to bear his company. But the longer she is with him, the more she has to force herself to remain true to her dead husband's memory. Why is it the humbly born Thomas Moreland possesses more nobility that any man of her class? And why is it she finds it harder and harder to mourn a dead man when Thomas's virility awakens her deepest desires?

The story was rather charming and I did enjoy reading it. It was rather predictable at points and many grammatical errors kept the reading from being smooth. The characters were marvelous. Sadly though, i really wanted to slap Felicity. Her reasoning for hiding/avoiding Thomas were just plain stupid. The ending also left alot to be desired. There was no wedding, which was weird,( hello? The title?) It would've made more sense to have the marriage ceremony and give the reader the "happy ending" that you were reading for.
