"Set around both a holiday and engagement theme, [this] novella is the perfect way to escape a hectic schedule. Even in a short format [Russell's] style shines through and charms readers.” —RT Book Reviews
- Harriet Klausner
"[The Border Lord's Bride] is a super fourteenth century Borderlands romance. As always in a Gerri Russell historical, the lead couple is a charming pair while the support cast is powerful, and the deadly Machiavellian villain is hidden in plain sight. Sub-genre readers will appreciate Ms. Russell's engaging novella as love is not enough when trust does not exist." --Harriet Klausner
