Overview

The number-one New York Times-bestselling author returns with a brand-new Sherbrooke novel, featuring a cast of witty and outrageous characters and two wonderfully complex mysteries.

In April 1831, her grace Corinne Monroe wants her widowed son, Lord Julian, to marry her best friend's daughter, Miss Sophie Wilkie. Julian last saw Sophie when she was twelve years old, silent, skinny, and always staring at him. However, his mother is nothing if not persuasive, and Julian reluctantly accompanies her to London to meet the young lady.

And he knows that whatever happens isn't going to be good.

Lord Devlin Monroe, Julian's nephew, is very fond of his intriguing reputation in society: he delights, he frightens, he brings on delicious shudders. He's enjoying an extraordinarily pleasant bachelor life until Miss Roxanne Radcliffe and her niece, Miss Sophie Wilkie, appear in London society, and he finds himself wondering how he could have enjoyed midnight alone.

Julian and Devlin must discover what really happened three years earlier when Julian's first wife, Lily, was found dead. If they don't find out the truth, their lives could be ruined. And there is another, even more perfidious, danger that lurks in the shadows, waiting.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Nicholas Monroe is a widower prince who should be searching for a new wife; but though his family urges him on, he is pursued by dark thoughts and the suspicions of others about the mysterious death of his first wife Lily. Even after he meets the alluring Roxanne Radcliffe and her niece Sophie, the Prince of Ravenscar is weighed down by a past that refuses to be buried. A Regency romance to keep you rapt.

Publishers Weekly
Coulter's latest, set in 1831 England, offers an appealing blend of romance and mystery. Handsome lord and part-time smuggler Julian returns home after three years spent abroad trying to escape the tragedy of his wife's mysterious death. As he re-enters London society, his mother wants him to marry the gorgeous young Sophie, but Julian has no intention of falling in love again. Along with his nephew Lord Devlin, a self-styled vampire, Julian meets Sophie and her witty, independent aunt Roxanne, and the four soon grow intimate as they travel from London to Julian's ancestral home, Ravenscar. However, the past refuses to stay past: Richard Langworth, the brother of Julian's former wife, blames Julian for his sister's death and plots unspeakable revenge. Meanwhile, Julian uncovers a startling family history and learns the truth about his father, and the elusive origins of his title—the Prince of Ravenscar. While her trademark wit veers rather tastelessly towards double-entendre and much of the dialogue sounds artificially stilted, Coulter (The Sherbrooke Bride) generates laughs as well as chills, as she shifts between depicting the passion of love and the consequences of hate. (Sept.)

Booklist
Julian, the second son of the Duke of Brabante, is an unmarried smuggler, and his mother wants to take him to London for the season. In fact, the Duchess has chosen a wife for him, Sophie Collette Wilkie, an unfashionably tall clergyman's daughter who, at 20, is considered too old for the marriage market. Julian comes with a good deal of emotional baggage. Wounded at the Battle of Waterloo, he still bears the scars of war. Even worse, his young wife, Lily, was found murdered, and people believe that he did it, especially her brother, Richard, who is obsessed with revenge. Once Sophie meets Julian, she knows he is innocent and becomes his greatest champion, and Julian finds himself falling in love with this allegedly unmarriageable spinster. The prolific Coulter balances this tale's serious themes and tone with humorous moments and a charming secondary romance between Devlin, Julian's half uncle and best friend, who is so pale it's rumored he is a vampire, and one of Sophie's relatives, Roxanne. Fans of Coulter's popular Sherbrooke series (The Hellion Bride, 1992; The Sherbrooke Bride, 2004) will be thrilled by this latest addition.— Shelley Mosley
Kirkus Reviews
A hard-used family of English aristocrats deals with yet more plots and murder attempts. Julian Monroe, Prince of Ravenscar, has returned from three years abroad making a fortune and trying to forget the murder of his wife, unaware that his mother, the Dowager Duchess of Brabante, has hatched a scheme to marry him to Sophie Wilkie, her dear friend's daughter. Sophie arrives in London for the Season accompanied by her stunning red-headed aunt Roxanne Radcliffe, who's only seven years older than Sophie. Meanwhile, Julian's former brother-in-law Richard Langworth, firmly convinced that Julian murdered his sister Lily, is out for Julian's blood. Julian's nephew Lord Devlin Monroe, who's nearly Julian's age, agrees to accompany Julian, his mother, Sophie and Roxanne on a trip to Ravenscar. They're joined by Roxanne's sharp-tongued sister Leah, who considers herself the most beautiful of the Radcliffes. Leah has set her sights on Richard as her future husband. Julian's former father-in-law, Baron Purley, has asked him to visit in the hope of settling the problems between the families. When one of Julian's ships is nearly destroyed by fire and Roxanne is kidnapped, Julian is convinced that Richard is still plotting to make him suffer. Julian, Devlin, Sophie and Roxanne must sort out their love lives even as they're trying to find out what happened to Lily. The latest addition to the long-running Sherbrooke series (The Heiress Bride, 1993, etc.) offers pleasant characters and an easily solved mystery for fans of historical romance.

Meet the Author

Catherine  Coulter
Catherine Coulter is the author of more than sixty-five books, including historical and contemporary romances and the New York Times-bestselling FBI Thriller series. She lives in Northern California.

Biography

The author of dozens of bestsellers, Catherine Coulter made her Romance debut with 1978's The Autumn Countess, a fast-moving story she describes as "a Gothic masquerading as a Regency." Six more Regency romances followed in quick succession; then, in 1982, she penned her first full-length historical novel, Devil's Embrace. She counts several trilogies among her most popular historicals, notably the Bride Trilogy -- which, in turn, spawned an ongoing story sequence featuring the beloved Sherbrooke family of Regency-era England.

In 1988, Coulter tried her hand at contemporary romance with a twisty little page-turner called False Pretenses. Her fans ate it up and begged for more. Since then, she has interspersed historicals with contemporary romantic thrillers (like the novels in her bestselling FBI series) in one of the most successful change-ups in the history of romance publishing.

    This is an amusing historical romantic suspense

    In 1831 Lord Julian Monroe returns to Ravenscar, England after three years away. He left the country after he found his wife Lily dead from a bullet wound. His former brother-in-law Richard Langworth holds him culpable for his sister's death and plans to enact revenge on Julian.

    His mother Lady Corrine, ecstatic that her son has finally come home, wants her son to remarry, but he has no interest in a second wife. Her choice is Miss Sophie Wilkie, niece of her friend Miss Roxanne Radcliffe. Reluctantly he agrees to escort Miss Sophie while his nephew Lord Devlin the self-anointed vampire finds himself attracted to Miss Roxanne. As the pair of couples falls in love on the road from London to Ravenscar; Richard dangerously raises the past leading to Julian learning why he is called the Prince of Ravenscar.

    This is an amusing historical romantic suspense starring four strong independent characters. The course to true love is straighter than the Bonneville Salt Flats as there are no twists of consequence, yet the protagonists and the antagonist make for a fun journey. Filled with tension and jocularity especially the witty exchanges between the aunt and the nephew, readers will enjoy the couples on the road and at Ravenscar in Catherine Coulter's family affair.

    Ok

    Silly and predictable. Vampires? Where did that come from and what did it have to do with plot development? Maybe she's seen too many recent movies. Not what a long time reader would expect.

    Not your typical Coulter

    I have been a fan of Ms. Coulter's historical romances for years, reading all multiple times. This addition to the Bride Series while witty in its exchanges falls completely flat in passion department. A few kisses over the last 100 pages is the extent of any "adult" contact between characters. While this isn't a must have for me to read, Ms. Coulter does it so beautifully and romantically where others can be downright crass, I was looking forward to that again here, but much to my surprise there was none to be found. I would have no issues with my 10 year old reading this that is how G rated this book turned out to be.

    Good Foray Into Historical Fiction by Coulter

    While historical fiction is not normally my cup of tea, I found this book to be enjoyable. The story is about a son of a Duke who lost his wife when she was mysteriously shot, leaves for three years to mourn his loss, and then comes back and is able to fine love again. In the midst of finding new love the hero, Julian, must deal with the his vengeful ex-brother-in-law who blames Julian for the death of his sister. The plot moves along nicely with good character development. I especially appreciated the abundant use of authentic old english words, as it added nicely to the story. The only reason I gave the 4/5 star rating is that the ending was highly predictable from the moment the characters were introduced. All in all, I would definitely recommend this book to anyone that is a fan of the genre.

    Not one of her best

    I love Catherine Coulter but did NOT love this book. I have never read the bride series but I hope the others are better than this one. The changing of partners makes no sense, the "vampire" story is a distraction and he has pondered his wife's death for 3 years and suddenly knows what happened by a dress and hairdo? Really? If you really want to read it, check it out from the library. I wish I had.

    Love this author, but...

    This was a terrible book. The charater dialogue wasboring and childish at best. Nothing happened to show love interest of any kind till about chapter 40, the charaters of the Twilight series were kissing by chapter 6 or 7- and that was written by a moron. The climatic scenes were more like a bad soap opera plot. I just hope the next book is much better.

    Not Her Best

    I love Coulter's books as a rule, but this was a convoluted mess. Really disappointed that I bought it in hardcover. You should know that I have never been so dissapointed in a book that I felt the need to review it until now. I don't even know why it is even called a Sherbrooke novel. There were a FEW places where the Sherbrooke's were mentioned but not enough to title it A Sherbrooke Novel!!

    What a terrible book. No depth to characters, no real plot Nothing believable about how and why the characters fell in love with each other. Totally cheesy. I don't think the author actually thought about where she wanted the story to go. It was a patched up book.

    A beautiful book! The description of the characters, places, clothes… and the hair, my goodness, the amazing hair these women have! :) Beautiful! If you enjoy historical romance you should definitely read this book! The ‘Prince of Ravenscar’ is a ‘Sherbrooke’ novel and I’m now looking forward to re-reading those to once again visit old friends (there are a couple in here!) and see where these new ones fit in!
    Julian is the main ‘hero’ in this story and he, along with his half-nephew Devlin, are everything you could want in a man… smart, sarcastic, funny, strong, quite sure of themselves and of course, devastatingly handsome! The main women in this story, Corinne (Julian’s mother), Sophie (‘meant’ for Julian) and Roxanne (Sophie’s “on the shelf” aunt) are, as always, smart, absolutely gorgeous, witty and fully capable of taking care of themselves (especially Roxanne!)! Once they all meet and become friends it’s great to be a part of the intrigues they find themselves in! Figuring out the basics of the mystery is not difficult… but you want to keep reading to find out more and are rewarded with some interesting details as to the how and why of it all! You meet several people that you completely love to HATE, which is always fun! There are late night noises and people lurking, plus lots of flirting, which is also fun! It didn’t totally pull me in like her others and I can’t put my finger on exactly why… but all in all it is a wonderful book and I look forward to more

    Eh-

    I found this book to be a dry at times, enough to say i wouldnt classify it as a romance novel. The author didnt elobrate much on the passion and love side of the story enoguh for me. The end was also very anticlimactic.
