Overview


Madeline Oxley could not completely fault Adam Coates. Her father had hoodwinked them both...but now that she stood at last before him, how could she ever walk away?

"Your father sent me the wrong bride!"

Madeline gritted her teeth. "Sir, you are not the only one who has been inconvenienced by this. I just spent forty-six days on a damp, creaky ship, and now you tell me in front of everyone that I'm not the one you ordered, and I shouldn't have bothered. I believe I've had quite enough insults for one day. My father assured me you had asked for my hand. I had no reason to question the truth of it."

Adam's chest heaved with a sigh. "No reason to question it? Do you not have a mind of your own?"

Oh, this was too much. "To tell you the truth, Mr. Coates, I do have a mind of my own—a mind to poke my father with a knitting needle, and if I may say so, you could use a poke yourself!"

    An Unwanted Bride

    Madeline Oxley can't believe her good fortune when her father informs her that Adam Coates, the man of her romantic dreams, has requested her hand in marriage. Immediately she sets off for Adam's colonical Nova Scotia farm, eager for her new life as his wife.... Only to discover she isn't the woman he's expecting -- he requested her sister! She's jilted by the man she loves! ADAM'S PROMISE was a delightful read, rich with historical detailing of early pioneer life. From author Julianne MacLean's vivid description, I felt like I'd stepped back in time, and seeing this world with my own eyes. A must read for historical fans!

    I loved this book!

    Julianne Maclean paints a beautiful picture of a noble Yorkshire Immigrant in intriguing colonial Nova Scotia and the tension that builds between him and the sister of his betrothed. It¿s obvious that Adam and Madeline were meant to be together, and I loved going along for the ride as they attempt to hurdle over the obstacles in their way. This story was so alluring; I couldn¿t bear to put it down!

    Highly recommended!

    I highly recommend this Harlequin Historical title, and not just for its unique setting (Tantramar Marshes, 1775). Author Julianne MacLean makes your heart break right along with Madeline's when our heroine arrives in the British Colony of Nova Scotia to find that the man who sent for her, the man she's been in love with all her life, actually wanted her older, more beautiful sister. And that's just the beginning. MacLean will quietly and deftly wring a whole lot more emotion from you before you close this book with a satisfied sigh.

    Good read

    A sweet sad story. I loved the ending, though. The heroine was a little too selfless in my opinion and didn't know her own mind at times, but the "hero" made up for it with his decisive nature. In all, it was a good read.

    Really Good Book!

    Why oh why can't these men realize the plain jane sister is the better marriage choice. When the wrong sister is sent across the ocean it takes our hero an entire book to realize that he dodged a bullet by not getting his original choice. But of course that's not until the sister shows up and makes everybody miserable. Set in Nov Scotia for a change of pace. Its quite a good book.

    Adams promise

    I wish that I could have given this book more stars. I felt really sympathetic towards the main female character. She was put in a very difficult situation and had a tragic life. Despite my best efforts to like the main male character he grated on my last nerve. I found him rude, wishy washy, and extremely self centered. He was too old to act like a male i his twenties. I felt that his stepson acted more mature.
