Read this only if all the other books in the world were gone

Bad book. If you want a book about a crazy woman who it totally selfish this is the book for you. Worst heroine ever. Silly flash back at the end of every chapter.

    Excellant

    ¿I promise.¿ Were the last words that Sean O¿Neil said to Eleanor de Warenne as he rode out of her life four long years ago. Accused and convicted of treason, he is just a breath away from the gallows when a daring escape makes him the most wanted man in England and Ireland. Changing his name he is set to leave Ireland but the absence and longing of his family calls to him and he can¿t resist returning home to Adare. What he finds and sees upon his arrival hurts him to the core. Eleanor his stepsister is about to be married. Once he may have dreamed of living a life with her and raising a family but those dreams were shattered and the man that Eleanor knew does not exist anymore. Instead he is a man with regrets, a man torn inside on what he really wants or desires. For years Eleanor sat and waited patiently for Sean to return home from his adventures. She¿s loved him madly since he was adopted into her family when her father and his mother married. She always chased and followed after him and he was truly her hero. It was naturally assumed that Sean and Eleanor would eventually marry. As the years went by Eleanor¿s heart was broken bit by bit and she was finally convinced that she seek marriage elsewhere. She found herself enchanted by the charm and personality of Peter Sinclair and she is soon going to be married to him. On the eve of her wedding, she discovers Sean at Adare and her heart leaps in her throat. But the Sean in front of her is hard and cruel towards her. Elle knows that she can reach him and in a daring escape she steals away with Sean on the day of her wedding. Now on the run Sean and Elle are finally alone and face-to-face with their feelings and undying love. But are both strong enough to deny and abandon the feelings they feel inside. The Stolen Bride is one of the most intense, riveting, emotional reads that I have read in a long time. The romance of Elle and Sean is complicated they are hurt, torn and damaged but yet has they delve through the layers reaching into the soul of each other it makes for a spicy and enthralling read. As part of The de Warenne Dynasty it is a novel that certainly stands alone. But it ties previous novels with recaps and follow-ups on related characters introducing them to newer readers making sure not to overwhelm the story for readers who have been following the series. The Stolen Bride is classic Brenda Joyce back in her element of strong tortured hero¿s, and heroines brave enough to rise against the odds.

    In 1818 Ireland, Eleanor de Warenne is about to marry Peter Sinclair, but instead of her fiancé she thinks of her love Sean O¿Neill, who vanished four years ago just after she kissed him. He was the boy she grew up with when their widowed parents married. Though she told her father that he should make her a proper match, which he did, Eleanor wonders if she made an error as she needs to know whether Sean is dead as most people assume. Still three hundred people have arrived in the towns of Adare and nearby Limerick for the ceremony so in spite of her misgivings she will not dishonor her family. --- As if by magic Sean appears out of thin air. He pleads with Eleanor to hide him, which she does as he explains he has been incarcerated and just escaped prison with his enemy in hot pursuit. Rested, Sean plans to leave, but Eleanor in her wedding dress forces him to take her with him. As the hardened Sean finds his heart melting for the former tomboy he has always loved, he knows he must prove his innocence if they are to share a life together as he thought when he first met the infant female brat he knew somehow was his destiny. --- The latest de Warenne Regency era romance (see THE MASQUERADE and THE PRIZE) is a wonderful suspense thriller starring an alpha female and a mentally battered male who suffers from a form of battle fatigue syndrome. The story line is loaded with non-stop action (a trademark of Ms. Joyce), but belongs to the lead couple especially the courageous heroine. THE STOLE BRIDE grips the audience from the onset when a doubting Eleanor finds the reason for her misgivings alive, but not well and in need of help. --- Harriet Klausner
