Overview

Noramary came out of the parlor into the hall. Stunned by what she had just heard, she felt slightly light-headed and leaned against the closed door for a moment to steady herself. The shock of Winnie's elopement during the night had been followed by a second — the staggering request of her foster parents that she step into her errant cousin's place as the bride of Duncan Montrose! "So you see, my dear, why we must ask this of you?" Aunt Betsy's voice rang in her ears. Noramary closed her eyes, bringing back the scene that had just taken place. As her aunt had explained the dilemma Winnie's irresponsibility had caused and what must now be done, Noramary had sat very still, eyes downcast, hands folded in her lap, hearing but not fully absorbing her aunt's words. Now those same words burst upon her, strong and clear: "—marry Duncan Montrose!" Valiant Bride is a historical romance that brings to life a young woman's choice between duty and love.

I have read all of these books and they are all great! I had to free up library space in my home and I have been sorry that I gave up this set of books. I just got my Nook and I thrilled to see that I csn have an electronic set of these!

The storyline is improbable, but interesting, the descriptions lavish, the characters engaging. However, one is contin ually distracted by the incessant typos. My favorite example from page 63: "He was, in fart, like herself." Then there are the inconsistencies. For instance, Duncan describes at length how the home was built from local wood, the floors in rubbed heart of pine. However, when his bride enters, she walks upon floors of oak. A little editorial effort would have gone a long way with this book.

Well, I did and it's wonderful. I also gave it to a friend who loved it too! Unfortunately I liked it so much I'm afraid to read the others. I don't want to be disappointed.
