    Boring

    I love romance novels and this book truly bored me to tears. I did not finish the book, which is rare for me. I am sorry that I spent the money and filled my nook with this sleeper. To much analyzing and thought among the characters, not enough interaction with the main characters. zzzzzzzz.......

    good story

    1st book by this author. Very good writer. she employed many characters, romance, action, adventure and a host of other adjectives. I just hate the some of the circumstances of events that evolved around the main characters felt exaggerated.

    My Favorite Romance Ever!

    This is my favorite book of all time! It had everything: slavery, pirates, hitmans, kidnappers and just like anything that makes a book exciting and adventurous. I love the characters and the romance. The best book ever ... too bad the book wasn't that popular.

    exciting, action-packed historical romance

    In 1834, American sea merchant Gavin Elliot sets sail from The East Indies for London after making his fortune in trade. He plans to reestablish his family name previously disgraced among the aristocracy. <P> On his journey to England, Gavin stops at the island of Maduri where Sultan Kasan surprisingly orders a personal visit from the sea captain. While there, Gavin learns that English widow Alexandra Warren is held in bondage after her ship was captured by pirates. Alexandra¿s eight-year-old daughter is either dead or incarcerated elsewhere. Though he knows not to intercede, the honorable Gavin challenges Kasan to play Lion¿s Game in which his loss means two decades of servitude, but a victory frees Alexandra. Of course, Gavin has never played before while his opponent is a pro in this deadly encounter. <P> THE BARTERED BRIDE is an exciting, action-packed historical romance that never slows down until the tale is completed. The story line is loaded with a taste of an exotic 1830¿s environment that provides a fresh outlook to the audience. The lead couple is a courageous duo though the odds of Gavin defeating Kasan in the Lion¿s Game seems greater than Douglas-Tyson and would have been kept off Vegas and White¿s books. Still Mary Jo Putney continues to provide a vast panorama of an intriguing bygone era by placing her romances in unique locals. <P>Harriet Klausner
