Overview

His Bride by Gayle Callen

Gwyneth Hall has heard the dark rumors about Sir Edmund Blackwell, the man she is betrothed to but has never seen. To save her penniless family from ruin, however, she would wed the devil himself. And this gorgeous, moody "devil" sends a tremor of excitement racing through her when first they meet -- sparking the young bride's determination to turn a marriage of mere convenience into much more.

Edmund dares never love again. Already wicked tongues falsely blame him for a crime he didn't commit. And while his exquisite new bride fills him with intense desire, their union is simply a means for him to retain his hard-won lands. Gwyneth is, after all, related to his despised enemy and therefore not to be trusted. But how long can Edmund resist the temptation of her luscious lips ... or her warm, sensuous touch?

In 1591 England, the parents of his deceased wife summon Sir Edmund Blackwell to see them. Edmund¿s father-in-law Lord Langston offers to buy back Castle Wintering, the estate he gave as part of his daughter¿s dowry. Edmund refuses, but Lady Langston points out his lack of funds to run the estate. She offers a different deal. Edmund marries Langston cousin Gwyneth Hall and receive a large dowry too. The only clause in the marriage contract that gives Edmund pause is that if he dies without a male heir, Castle Wintering returns to Langston. Needing money badly after his spouse¿s excesses, Edmund accepts though he feels he deals with the devil. Edmund does not trust his second Langston bride though Gwyneth works hard to quickly gain the support of his people. Edmund begins falling in love with his wife and wants to believe her behavior is genuine, but wonders what her role is in whatever nefarious scheme Langston has concocted. Still love blossoms between the Blackwell couple, but trust is a more difficult feeling to attain. Though the overused theme of a marriage pawn is the underlying concept of HIS BRIDE, Gayle Callen keeps the story line moving through the wonderfully caring Gwyneth, albeit even if she acts too perfect while trying to prove to Edmund that she has no deceit. The Langstons are too avariciously villainous while the lead couple is a delight as Gwyneth wins over everyone but her skeptical husband. Fans of Ms. Callen¿s ¿His¿ tales will enjoy this novel made pleasant by the lead ¿Her¿. Harriet Klausner

Its all about trust. Here, the hero who married a relative of his dead wife at the "persuasion" of his father in law was distrustfull of his new wife. He of course had just reason since between his first wife and her parents they made his life very difficult. Gwynett Hall (the heroine and present wife) was very likeable and just what the hero needed. Although it took him awhile to see this.
