THE CAPTIVE BRIDE

She Would Not Be A Bride!

Lady Katharine believed that men and marriage were nothing more than paths to lifelong servitude. And Lord Senet, having stolen her home, seemed no exception. Yet though his touch made her feel beautiful and feminine, how could she ever care for a man she could not trust?

Lord Senet Gaillard was an honorable knight. Had there been another path to reclaiming his ancestral castle other than wedding Lady Katharine, he would have taken it. But the deed was done, and now he must woo his reluctant bride—for winning her heart had become more important than life itself.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
After fighting the French for England's king, Lord Senet Gaillard is awarded the return of his ancestral lands, on condition that he marry Lady Katharine Malthus, daughter of the man who received Lomas Castle when Senet's father was executed for treason. Senet arrives at Lomas with his band of knights, and Katharine appears to accept her fate--until night falls and she flees, hoping to locate a distant cousin to beg his protection. After Senet forces Katharine to return, the couple discover their mutual attraction and resolve to work together for the sake of the villagers. Though the supporting characters add lively secondary love stories, and Paul (a.k.a. Mary Spencer, Lady's Wager) provides intriguing details of 15th-century castle life, this promising romance misses the mark by meandering to its ending. (Aug.)

I found the book to be of a consistent pace, I was sucked in during the 2nd chapter. The plot wasn't too different from a lot of historical novels, but there can only be so many stories. I loved the passion and stubbornness of the lead characters and was curious as to who would crack first. I would recommend it.

I'm sorry, I really wanted to give this book a chance. It looked like it was going to be good by the picture on the cover. This just moved too slow, and I got confused trying to remember all of the names. I didn't even get to the third chapter I was so bored.
