Millions of fans agree with Romantic Times when it praises Cathy Maxwell for being an author “who understands the human heart and whose stories touch our souls.” Her novels are filled with dashing, daring characters, yet their desires are universal. Brenn Owen, the new but impoverished Earl of Merton, is looking for a bride—one rich enough to finance his estate. When he meets Tess Hamlin, he sees a woman who is not only wealthy, but a dazzling beauty as well. To his surprise, Tess quickly accepts his proposal. But behind her eagerness lurks a secret she will do anything to hide from him. As the Earl and his bride begin their life together, their path is a passionate one, but far from smooth—haste must give way to patience and understanding. Virginia Leishman’s narration heightens the drama of each colorful exchange between the lovers.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melissa | 2/19/2014

    " A happy, sweet story, but two dimensional. No real challenges for the characters to overcome and the "he loves her but doesn't say it and she's too proud to ask for it" storyline is too overdone. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shawn | 2/10/2014

    " A decent book, not terrible, not great. Glad I read it and very happy it was free. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mrs. Clare | 2/6/2014

    " This book was so similar to The Beauty Bride by Claire Delcroix, it was uncanny. Down to the quick wedding, secrets being kept by both sides and the faery story. I would definitely be wary of one of them being a rip-off. An enjoyable story, but I read the Beauty Bride first and when I was reading this thought, "Didn't I just read this story?" "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elizabeth | 1/12/2014

    " B&N offered this book on Free Friday a while back, and I've finally gotten around to reading it. It's a pretty standard romance, and there are no surprises, but the story is pleasant and makes for a decent pleasure read. If you're into regency romances with a bit of Welsh flair, you'll enjoy this. "

    " i like it well enough. a light good romance "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Heidi | 9/27/2013

    " Freebie book - with not much to it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kaethe | 7/24/2013

    " Easy and fun to read. My own husband is Welsh, and I loved the descriptions of the countryside in which the most important parts of the story take place. My only complaint is that one of two bad guys in the tale did not get his comeuppance -- perhaps that will happen later in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Coralie | 7/14/2013

    " if you like Downton Abby you will like this book. "

    " Tess Hamlin was a wealthy heiress and the Earl of Merlton, Brenn Owen, was looking for a wealthy wife to restore his keep or estate. Both are surprised to find each other and the secrets both kept from the other. I enjoyed this book. "

    " A Free Friday special on Nook. Good for a quick light read. Mildly interesting at best. Predictable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rebecca | 9/4/2011

    " This was a free Friday Nook book. A fun, quick read. Enjoyed the characters and the growth of the main couple. Loved Tess' literary aspirations. Quite enjoyable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenna | 4/13/2011

    " The book was good. It's very absorbing with a good plot, and characters. The only thing was the ending is sort of in haste..... :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sharon Marion | 11/23/2010

    " I enjoyed this book even if it was predictable. It was a nice story and shows what love can be. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stephanie | 11/3/2010

    " I won't give it a 4 because I didn't find it fantastic, but I did enjoy it. I like how it ended seeing as you're left wondering what's going to happen to this couple who knows absolutely nothing about one another. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Taina | 7/14/2010
