This was a well-written, excellent historical romance. This book can be read as a standalone story, though it is part of a series (The Bride Quest) with related characters. Rowan de Montvieux agrees to go on a bride quest or risk losing his inheritance. On his journey he encounters a peasant being sold by a slave merchant, and intrigues by the mystery he senses, he agrees to take her along in exchange for her help locating the bride he seeks. She is actually Bronwyn of Ballyroyal, an heiress in disguise, and during the journey she comes to know Rowan for the man he really is. I loved this book and can't wait to read more books in this series as well as others by this author. I received a copy of this book with no expectation of a review. I have voluntarily posted a review consisting of my honest opinions.

Youngest son Rowan wants nothing to do with responsibilities, preferring to live the life of a carefree rogue, enjoying the favors of women and the occasional wager. When his brothers dare him to find a bride (as they have recently done) he not only takes the wager, but increases the difficulty by declaring he will marry the wealthiest heiress in all of Ireland. When on his way he comes across a beautiful slave in the custody of a truly cruel and despicable trader, he can't help but purchase her. So begins the battle of wills and wagers between "Ibernia" and Rowan, as he tries to both escort her to safety and win his brother's wager. The puzzle of Ibernia is one Rowan is determined to solve while Ibernia is equally intent on keeping her own secrets, having run away from an unsatisfactory betrothal. In the end neither of them gets what they wanted, but everything they desire. As always, Ms. Delacroix writes in a style that is at home in the time period, with beautiful prose, totally believable dialog and an unexpected resolution. I highly recommend this book, along with the first two books of The Bride Quest series, "The Princess" and "The Damsel." Though all are standalone novels, you will definitely want to read them all, they are just that good! A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review, (though I had already purchased my own copy!).
