This is the second novel by JD I have read in the past year. I also read ¿Not Quite A Gentleman¿ (excellent ¿ excellent ¿ excellent!). I really like the way this author writes ¿ her style is simple, fresh and very enjoyable. The story itself was interesting in that the main hero is both a high ranking Earl of good standing AND the naughty infamous bride thief on the side. I liked foremost that our hero Eric had a heart of gold ¿ not just for one or two people but, for everyone he met. Especially his little sister Margaret, his new gal Samantha, Sam¿s brother Hugh and Eric¿s closet employee who was like a 2nd father to him, Arthur. His upbringing was difficult, hard and full of pain with a poor father and mother. He didn¿t let a bad childhood keep him down. Instead, he took a negative of father¿s selling off their daughters like chattel all for money, title¿s, lands and more. Regardless of how cruel these men would be to their off spring, they still sold off their female children. Eric saw it happen to his sister and vowed never again ¿ thus the Bride Thief was born. In turn, I liked that Samantha was no simpering, silly and empty headed miss. You knew without question that her charm and intelligence would win the day. How could it not? Even though she wasn¿t traditionally beautiful, it only took a discerning eye to see her lustrous hair, amazing eyes, full lips, ripe young body and adventurous and curious spirit. She didn¿t care for traditional things like clothes, jewelry, balls or marriage. She enjoyed the sciences, math and animal kingdom and she didn¿t care what society said. I especially enjoyed that our hero and heroine did not fall in love right away and jump straight into bed together. Oh no¿these two took time meeting up, sometimes liking one another, sometimes unsure but, eventually, once they truly saw the other from the inside out¿there was no going back. I could feel the emotions of both Samantha when she agonized and the same with Eric. I could feel their passion as they counted the minutes until they saw the other again ¿ ooooh glorious love! I was surely rooting them on to admit their feelings, act on them and find a way to be together. For a couple who originally wanted nothing to do with marriage, two people couldn¿t have been more right for the institution. If you are considering this author¿don¿t wait, rush out and get her books ¿ you won¿t regret it. I have already purchased four other books by her and can¿t wait to start reading them and hope she comes out with some more historical novels soon. This book was bold, brilliant and beautiful,¿so many ¿b¿ words to describe ¿The Bride Thief!¿

ALTHOUGH NOT THE USUAL 5 STAR BOOK FOR THIS AUTHOR-THIS IS A GOOD READ.I WONDERED HOW THE ENDING COULD POSSIBLY BE ANYTHING BUT A DISASTER FOR SAMANTHA AND ERIC BUT THE AUTHOR HAS COME UP WITH AN UNUSUAL SOLUTION. ON THE SENUALITY SCALE OF 1-10 IT'S A 5 MAYBE--BUT THE BOOK WAS WRITTEN 2 YEARS AGO AND READERS WERE SATISFIED WITH A MINIMAL TO MODERATE ROMANCE--THEY AREN'T TODAY.
