Overview

A Rearranged Marriage

Lord Curan Ramsden is home from war, and eager to claim his betrothed. And he arrives just in time--his bride's father has summoned her to London, to wed another man. But Bridget's father promised her to Curan, and Curan means to have her. Especially now that he sees the luscious young woman she has blossomed into. He'll just have to convince Bridget, somehow, that her heart is more important than her duty. . .

Bridget Newbury has always done her duty--to her parents, to the church, to the man they selected as her betrothed. She knows what could happen if she disobeys her father. The king has put nobler women to death for lesser trespasses. But she was promised to Curan first, and his kisses are very tempting. . .

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In this original and captivating 16th-century romance, Wine tantalizes readers with a tale of passion and longing. Bridget Newbury, betrothed to the handsome and capable Lord Curan Ramsden, is inexplicably called to London by her father to marry another. An esteemed knight who has ridden alongside King Henry VIII, Curan defends his right to marry Bridget and carries her off. Bridget's mother arranged to have her tutored for marriage by a courtesan, and the young woman's sexual awakening brings with it newfound courage and confidence that she will need as she finds herself hauled toward the dangerous Scottish-English border and torn between duty to her father and her increasing affection and yearning for her betrothed. Readers will cheer on Wine's delightfully clever and sharp-tongued protagonist and will be glued to the passion, humor, escapades, and court intrigue till the very last page. (Jan.)

In 1543 Lord Newbury promised his daughter Bridget to Lord Curan Ramsden. Before he could wed his intended, Curan went off to war under the banner of King Henry VIII. After three years of loyal service to his monarch at the front of the war, Curan finally comes home for his reward; marriage to Bridget. Thus he is stunned to learn Newbury has taken his daughter to London to marry some other aristocrat; ironically King Henry's Chancellor, who remained safely at home. Outraged by the affront that he knows has more than Henry's blessing. Curan vows to have his betrothed whether they are married or not; though his preference is for her to be his wife. He intercepts her as she heads to London and takes her to his home where she loves his kisses but fears the wrath of King Henry if she fails to wed his Chancellor. This is an engaging Tudor romance starring two wonderful leads who belong together but due to royal intrigue they are star-crossed lovers. No one dares to mess with the King yet Curan knows his heart demands he must. Mary Wine provides an intoxicating sixteenth century historical as love literally may mean a loss of one's head.

Although the front cover is misleading, Curan was a knight serving and fighting under the King of England, but it was all an excellent read, very exciting!!! The first 95 pages was his teasing Bridget about her tutoring under a courtesan. She was so afraid of disobeying her Father!!!! I was mad when Curan thought he put Bridget to bed and seduced his former mistress away from his Captain, I guess for old times, but a man is a man!!!! But he did take his whole army of men to go after Bridget in Scotland!!! Anyway I Highly Recommend, love this author's writing!!!

I enjoyed the book very much. But I think $10.11 for a 196 page story is out of line. I have already purchased the complete trilogy, but had I known the books were so short, I would not have bought them.

Even though he was pictured as a Highlander instead of knight, this cover is one of my favoorites of all time. This another great read from a very favorite writer. I love how fiesty they are together.
