    Delightful romance

    At Brooks Gaming Club, Duke Jack Fortescu plays Faro with four other blokes including Earl Frederick Lacey. The Duke and the Earl have met over cards and other games of chance rather frequently lately with Jack winning all the time. However, Fred believes his luck has changed and he offers Lacey Court and all the contents inside as his wager. Jack accepts especially because of the stipulation of inside means Fred¿s sister. A couple of minutes later, Fred commits suicide...................... Jack travels to Kent to collect his winnings. However the sister Arabella is nothing like her brother. She is calm but laughs when he mentions the death of Fred and laughs when he offers a marriage of convenience. She wonders why a handsome wealthy Duke would settle for a twenty-eight year old rusticated spinster when he can have any diamond amidst the Ton. Jack cannot complete his vengeance without hurting Arabella just like Fred did to his sister Charlotte when he gave her away to the mob during the final days at Marie Antoinette¿s court. He did not count on falling in love with his victim..................... Though Arabella accepts her lot with a Fonzie level of cool that seems out of place, fans will appreciate this delightful late eighteenth century romance. The story line is character driven though much action occurs especially as the audience learn more about Charlotte. The tale focuses on the relationship between Jack and Arabella as he admires her from the onset, his admiration grows, and soon he is in love, but as he constantly reminds himself do not lose sight of the mission. Jane Feather provides an intriguing tale of love conquering hate........................... Harriet Klausner

    A Sweet Romance

    Almost a Bride by: Jane Feather Reviewer: Pamela Ackerson (author of Home of the Braves trilogy) A Sweet Romance This story is right up to par along with the rest of Ms. Feather's novels. A feisty heroine, Arabella, and a revengeful hero named Jack clash and play witty games with each other. Kick your feet up and enjoy, from the very first pages with him winning an estate and all it's contents to the last page where ... (no I am not going to spoil the ending) ... you smile in satisfaction, Almost a Bride is one of the better historical romances available on the shelf. It is a delightful story immersing the reader into each scene, a romance to keep you turning the pages until the very end. Definitely a book to read.

    Disappointing

    This book was good but it was kind of disappointing, I mean do you think that someone that has a gray chunk of hair is handsome? I think not. What is with Jane Feather and writing about ugly women marring old men? Totally disappointing.

    Great story!

    This was a great story and I love the history with it. I could not put this book down. Jane Feather is a wonderful author. Arabella is stubborn with every right to be. Jack Fortescu will make you angry but in the end you will also fall in love with him! I look forward to reading the sequel.

    GET THE HANKIES OUT LADIES

    In no way is this a delightful book. It is however-a good read. Vengeance and revenge conquered with patience and love. On a sensual scale of 1-10 it's a 4-5 feather never writes a scorcher. Jack is a mind-set male and arabella strong enough to take him on but yields too readily to his seductions even when she is quite angry with him. You will require a box of tissues at the end and practice saying over and over-'no--it can't be!'
