    Loved it

    I've just started reading the series. I've read and reread her bragg series (scandalous love and dark fire are my faves). I sort of cheated and went out of order reading this after the prize and the masquerade. I'm glad i did because while this may have not been the most passionate book (this was tame compared to the previous two), it was a beautiful love story that satisfied my fascination with these 2 people. She brought 2 imperfect people together to form a perfect couple. My favorite couple so far.

    Fantastic read!!!

    Review by Jen:
    Brenda Joyce has written some of my favorite historical romances and this book can be added to that list. The Perfect Bride is set in Regency England, just after the war with Napoleon. Rex is a war hero and a recluse. Blanche recently lost her father and is now an heiress and in need of husband... and Rex seems to be the right man for the job.

    One of the things that really stood out in this book are the characters. Rex was injured in the war and has visible and invisible wounds. Blanche seems to be the perfect English lady, but has a disturbing past which she'd buried but is now threatening her life. And the romance between these characters works. Ms. Joyce doesn't have the characters jump immediately into bed. But instead she develops a friendship between them and then passion erupts.

    The Perfect Bride is the seventh book in the De Warenne Dynasty series, but stands very well on it's own.

    After eluding marriage for eight years, wealthy Lady Blanche Harrington knows she will have to wed one of her two hundred twenty eight suitors as she muses whose counting. However with the recent death of her father she has no protection as the aristocracy of 1822 is fraternal when it comes to money. Still not one of these perspective grooms makes her heart beat most make her heart want to stop. Napoleonic war hero Rex de Warenne may be a hermit, who avoids society like the plague, but he likes Blanche a lot and always has in fact before his military time he thought of courting her, but since the horrors of combat he feels she can do much better than a mental cripple like him. Still he agrees to help her make a good match. Rex is there for Blanche as she finally moves on past her mom¿s death while she is there for him as he finally heals from post battle fatigue syndrome. However, as love blossoms between these two friends, one must take the chance of proclaiming their deepest desire. --- The lead couple makes this deep late regency romance into a powerful emotional read. All that will matter to sub-genre fans is whether the likable pair makes it together as he must overcome demons haunting his soul while she finds all others imperfect. Brenda Joyce¿s latest De Warenne tale (see THE MASQUERADE and THE PRIZE) is the best in a strong historical series. --- Harriet Klausner

    So so

    I liked most of the books, but Blanche isn't a good person. There was no reason for not to tell Rex about her problem up front.

    I Loved It!!!

    A very poignant and beautiful love story. The character's of Rex and Blanche were both so wounded in different ways that made it hard for both of them to trust and accept love. This story was so moving and achingly heart wrenching.I could not put it down. Bravo Ms. Joyce!!

    It was alright

    I was so excited to read this book, since I had read the rest of the series so far, I thought this one would be really good too. Boy was I wrong. It seemed like for Rex's story she just kinda wrote something out not even caring what happened to him, just to get him out of the way so she could write other books. I think it lacked depth, and could have been written a lot better!

    Beautiful Love Story

    I really enjoyed this book. I love all the de Warrenne books. It's not as passionate as some others but very touching. Read it!
