She Thinks She’s Bought a Compliant Husband…

Although Clare Greenough has inherited an unexpected fortune, her money is in the hands of a trustee until she marries—everyone knows a woman is incapable of managing funds. What she needs is an easygoing husband, right away…

They’re Both in for a Shock

She makes a deal with impetuous young James Boleigh, seventh baron Trehearth: they will marry, Clare will get control of her money, and Jamie will get the funds he desperately needs to restore his lands. To stave off ruin, Jamie agrees, believing Clare will soon become a proper, submissive wife. But to expect a serene, passionless marriage was only their first mistake…



THE BRIDE INSISTS by Jane Ashford is an interesting Regency Historical Romance.

Get ready to meet, Clare Greenbough and James Boleigh, seventh baron Trehearth. They are definitely in for a shock! A marriage of convenience may not be so convenient after all. Oh they both have very different ideas on their marriage, for one, Clare is not a submissive wife while, James is not such an easy going husband. This is only their first of many mistakes.

Passion will overrule their ideas, as the heart enters into their marriage. A must read. Filled with passionate kisses and other things, a battle of wits, and a fight for love. Engaging and entertaining characters. Not only are the main characters charming, but the secondary characters are just as engaging. Ms. Ashford is a talented author and THE BRIDE INSISTS is an enjoyable read! Received for an honest review.
