Overview

The Hostage Bride by Jane Feather

Dear Reader,

Here is the first of my new "Brides" trilogy, in which three unconventional young women vow they will never marry—only to be overtaken by destiny.  Bride #1 is the outspoken Portia....

It's bad enough that seventeen-year-old Portia Worth is taken in by her uncle, the marquis of Granville, after her father dies.  As the bastard niece, Portia knows she can expect little beyond a roof over her head and a place at the table.

But it truly adds insult to injury when the Granvilles' archenemy, the outlaw Rufus Decatur, hatches a scheme to abduct the marquis's daughter—only to kidnap Portia by accident.

Portia, who possesses more than a streak of independence as well as a talent for resistance, does not take kindly to being abducted—mistakenly or otherwise.

Decatur will soon find himself facing the challenge of his life, both on the battlefield and in the bedroom, as he contends with this misfit of a girl who has the audacity to believe herself the equal of any man....

Warmest wishes,

Jane Feather

P.S.  Phoebe, the "awkward" one, will be next, in The Accidental Bride.  Watch for it in early 1999.

this book was really good! The story line was excellent, and so were the characters. However, it did get a bit slow in places. I can't put my finger on why or how, but it seemed to take awhile to get from point A to point B a lot of the times. Also, sometimes the author spent a bit too much energy on imparting historical details, and those parts were a bit tedious to read. But overall, the book was excellent! i finished it a satisified reader and look forward to reading the rest of the trilogy. I definately reccomend the novel.

I have read many books, but not a Romance book before. I picked up the book for a trip to read in the car. Best book I have ever read!!!!!! I fell in love with this book immediately. I sat there just about the whole trip reading. You couldn't stop turnning the pages. It was great. You all need to read it.

I could not love this book. The writing itself wasn't bad it was good enough. The romance just fell flat. Rufus was quite mean at times and the love scenes were rushed. Hate to give a bad review and I wanted to like it but it just didn't do it for me.
