    Blackmailed Bride is a romance intrigue novel by Sylvie L. Kurtz

    Blackmailed Bride is a romance intrigue novel by Sylvie L. Kurtz. Cathlynn O’Connell attends an auction at the Ste-Crois Monastery mansion for the sole purpose of bidding on the Aidan Heart, a glass sculpture she is convinced will bring some magic to her gran, Meara O’Connell’s dying days. When she is outbid, she furiously tracks down the bidder, only to find herself agreeing to pose as someone’s wife to get the Aidan Heart back. Dr. Jonas Shades needs his wife Alana’s trust fund to complete his vital research into the hereditary fatal disease that threatens his siblings and the town of Ste-Crois. But Alana has disappeared, and, conveniently, Cathlynn looks just like her!!! Then there’s Geoffrey Chandler , Alana’s evil cousin, who is trying to get the money too, the walls of the monastery whispering warnings at Cathlynn and the possibility that the forbidding Dr Shades might have murdered his wife. Add a couple of loyal (?) employees in on the deception, a lawyer who’s suspicious, and an evil monk and you have a great big convoluted mess that isn’t terribly well executed. Don’t bother with this one!

    Blackmailed Bride

    This was my first read by this author. I found the book very refreshing. The characters were believable and yet unpredictable. Being a New Hampshire resident the setting was particularly comfortable for this reader. I had not read a Harlequin in quite some time so this was an unexpected pleasure. The ending was totally unpredictable. The writer catches the reader from the first page and never loses the reader's interest even at the end. I liked the way the writer held this reader's interest. I could not put this one down. I look forward to reading other titles by this same author. This writer should consider writing a full length novel. She surely would keep the reader's interest.

    Blackmailed Bride

    Sylvie Kurtz takes a giant step forward with her second Intrigue, 'Blackmailed Bride,' a well-executed twist on the Gothic formula. Dr. Jonas Shades comes to Cathlynn O'Connell with a deal: if she pretends to be his wife for two weeks, he'll give her the antique heirloom she's been searching for for years. Cathlynn wants the heirloom to please her dying grandmother, but is the deal too costly? Jonas's wife has been missing for six weeks without a word. Rumor has it she might be dead. Cathlynn reluctantly agrees to the deal, and finds herself alone in an isolated mansion in rural New Hampshire, with a man who had every reason to kill his wife. Did she dare trust him with danger coming ever closer? <p> Dark, mysterious, suspenseful and passionate, 'Blackmailed Bride' is the kind of story I was sure Intrigue had forgotten how to tell. Set in an abandoned monastery in the middle of nowhere in the dead of winter, it is the kind of page turner sure to send a shiver up your spine. In a way it is reminiscent of Jenna Ryan's early books. There are no hooks, but several original elements, which makes it feel like a welcome breath of fresh air. Unlike many attempts at the modern gothic, the characters aren't stuck as stock characters. Cathlynn is a tough heroine who won't back down. Jonas is remote, but wasn't one of those hard-headed heroes who I frustrated me to the extreme. Their interplay sizzles, the suspense builds, the characters find themselves in danger repeatedly. While her first Intrigue, 'One Texas Night' was very repetitive, Kurtz keeps the action moving and the thrills coming throughout. I read it in one sitting. I couldn't put it down. <p> So I don't mislead anyone, I will admit 'Blackmailed Bride' is not without flaws. Kurtz doesn't play fair with the mystery. It isn't too hard to figure out who the villain is. It
