Meet the Author

Catherine  Coulter

Catherine Coulter lives in Northern California with her husband Anton and her cat Gilly, who's as old as her marriage.

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.

    a reviewer

    Apparently rape is a fairly common theme for Catherine Coulter. In this story, St. Claire becomes infatuated with Katharine, who becomes a friend, and imagines she's attracted to him as well. She's petrified by the thought of intimacy due to a childhood rape, which she doesn't remember. Her religious father beats her frequently and unmercifully, blaming her for the rape. St. Claire uses this as further justification to force her to marry him, buying her from her father, imprisoning her in London, tracking her down when she escapes to Paris, and then threatens to drug and marry her if she refuses to marry him while sentient. St. Claire decides not to press for consummation due to her fear, but since things don't progress, he kidnaps her, drugs her, and then rapes her (because he's so 'frustrated'), with the intent to disclose his identity afterward. During the act, he discovers she isn't a virgin, and is so angry that he decides to hurt her, tears her up, and mildly wonders afterward why there's blood since she isn't a virgin. The rape immediately triggers a waking nightmare of the childhood rape. He 'finds' her, tells her she's had an accident, and doesn't let her tell otherwise. Feeling somewhat responsible for her gruesome nightmares, he comforts her and slowly begins gaining her trust, but the nightmares get worse, she's pregnant, she seduces him to cover it and she feels guilty. He forces her to face the childhood rape, which results in miscarriage. He finally confesses all and they separate, and just as he's about to start back up with his mistress, she shows up, throws the mistress out, and things are hunky-dory. The secondary characters, except for the father and mistress, have no bearing on the story at all, even though quite a bit of time is spent on them. This isn't my first Catherine Coulter novel, but it'll be the last as there are too many better authors to spend time on stories such as this.

    Book-work

    Eh.. liked it, but I wouldn't necessarily say it's to-die-for. I mean, it had it's moments, for me, but I guess, this book [out of the ones I've read from her so far] falls under the 'like' category for me. It's not a bad read, and it's definitely not a horrible read, it just didn't tickle my fancy.

    It Keeps You Going But in the End it is just SAD

    I read the whole book and I loved Kate but her secret made me cry. Two rapes scenes however is more than I can handle. It just makes you want to scream at everyone who was suppose to love and care for her. The book is okay. I recommend it if you can handle rape scenes.

    A must read

    Catherine Coulter never ceases to amaze me. I was pleased to find that the male had such a time going after the female. It appears they both loved the chase. This book stirred up such strong emotions, and it's so easy to fall in love with the characters. This is one of those books you can just sit down and cry to, be warned!

    A wonderful love story

    It's a beautiful story that tells how deep a man love a woman. However, he made a mistake that eventually seperated them. A lot of twist and turns in the development of the story which is the author's strong attribute to her stories.

    A beautiful love story.

    Another wonderful story written by the author. The later part of the book is especially captivating.

    A very entertaining story!

    Personally THE REBEL BRIDE was a book that kept me on the edge of my seat. Just trying to guess what Katherine's secret was only half the fun of reading this novel.
