Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
This byzantine conclusion to Coulter's Bride trilogy ( The Sherbrooke Bride ; The Hellion Bride ), set in 1807 Scotland and loaded with sex, splinters under the burden of its foolish and two-dimensional characters. Colin Kinross, seventh earl of Ashburnham, faces daunting problems: his castle is decaying, villainous clansmen are usurping his land and unmanageable debts keep mounting. But Joan ``Sinjin'' Sherbrooke, at 19 one of England's wealthiest women, has fallen in love with him and proposes a financially rewarding marriage. In order to escape Sinjin's two protective brothers, they elope to Colin's Scottish castle. There Colin presents Joan with two surly stepchildren and a pair of malicious sisters-in-law--it seems he has kept a previous marriage secret. Complications abound. An anonymous letter writer accuses Colin of throwing his first wife off a cliff--are murderous kinsmen seeking vengeance? Even ghosts are pressed to intervene at crucial moments as th e disjointed plot veers out of control. (Jan.)
Library Journal
The Heiress Bride is the final book in Coulter's "Regency Bride" trilogy, and many of the characters in the first two titles reappear. This one focuses on 19-year-old Sinjun Sherbrooke, the youngest of the three Sherbrookes (her brothers were married in the previous volumes). She is a bored heiress and almost past the marrying age. At a ball, she meets Colin Kinross, who desperately needs to marry a wealthy woman. Sinjun falls for him immediately (he is incredibly handsome) and offers herself as his wife. Despite family opposition, they marry and move to his castle in Scotland. Sinjun is then introduced to his family, which includes two stepchildren and evil and deranged relatives. On the way to the requisite happy ending, she must deal with ghosts and a debilitating illness and solve the mystery behind Colin's first wife's death. Coulter has many fans, and this book, read competently by Anne Flosnik, is tailor-made for them; other listeners may be put off by the preposterous plot lines and unrealistic characters. Public libraries should purchase for popular fiction collections.-Mary Knapp, Madison P.L., WI Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

The finale to Coulter's bride trilogy brings the cast from those previous novels to Scotland, where the sister of the Earl of Sherbrooke has just eloped with a Scottish laird. The new bride, Joan, is appalled to find herself the stepmother of two children and caretaker of a run-down castle, which she must share with a malevolent aunt and a her spouse's fey sister-in-law (from her beloved's previous marriage). A murder mystery, feuding clans, and bridal-night terrors are also stirred into the plot, which features an appearance by a ghost called Pearlin' Jane. Coulter is more interested in detailed accountings of the newlywed's many sexual encounters than she is in the historical setting, but her story is moderately interesting and holds some surprises.

This is a great book of Catherine Coulter's. Sinjun, the little girl of the infamous Sherbrooke family, goes out and catches a man for herself instead of waiting for one to find her during her second season in London. Sinjun's character is so very brave and her devotion to her husband she hardly knows is amazing. It's great seeing her older brothers squirm as they must let their little sister live her life in Scotland. This is an absolute must read.
