New York Times bestselling author Cathy Maxwell returns with a delicious new series, The Brides of Wishmore

What happens when a bride says maybe?

She’d once been the toast of London, but now scandal has brought her down. Still, pretty, petted Lady Tara Davidson can’t believe her new fate. She had wanted to marry for love . . . but her profligate father has promised her hand to none other than Breccan Campbell, the “Beast of Aberfeldy” and laird of the valley’s most despised clan! Well, Tara may have to marry him, but Breccan can’t make her love him—can he?

What happens when the groom insists?

Breccan Campbell is nobody’s fool. He knows that Tara is trouble. Yet he’s determined to reform the Campbell name even if it means forging an alliance with the arrogant beauty. There’s no doubt that Tara is a challenge, and Breccan loves nothing more. For he’s vowed to thoroughly seduce Tara—and make her his in more than name alone.

MY THOUGHTS:

THE BRIDE SAYS MAYBE by Cathy Maxwell is a delightful Regency Historical Romance set in Scotland. #2 in “The Brides of Wishmore ” Trilogy. See,”The Bride Says No”.

What a delightful story, once again, Ms. Maxwell has written a tale of romance, passion, misunderstandings, and finding love.

With a “Beauty and the Beast” theme, you will be delighted as well as a  little in awe as  Lady Tara Davidson is basically sold off to settle her father’s debts to Breccan Campbell, the “Beast of Aberfeldy”.

Breccan is considered huge by other’s standards, even to the Scots, he has faced ridicule but he finds he wants Tara, the county beauty, at all costs. So he pays Tara’s father’s huge debts and place’s his clan’s future on a horse race. He must win or lose everything. Since, he spent most of his money of paying Tara’s father’s debts.  His clan is considered the most despised clan in the valley. While, they may be poor they are rich in love.

Tara, despite herself is attracted to Breccan. He is determined to seduce her.

A delightful tale with a “Beauty and the Beast” theme. I find I thoroughly enjoyed this story, even though Tara is a little conceited, demanding, prideful(how that can be I can not phantom) and lovely. She grows up along the way, and it was nice to see her and Breccan grow together. If you enjoy Regency romance, HEA endings, and a great story than you will want to pick up “The Bride Says Maybe”. I can hardly wait for the next installment coming soon, “The Groom Says Yes”. Received for an honest review from the publisher and Edelweiss.

Book Description

January 28, 2014

New York Times bestselling author Cathy Maxwell returns with a delicious new series, The Brides of Wishmore

What happens when a bride says no?

He is the bastard son of a duke, arrogant, handsome, a little bit dangerous, and, of course, one of the most sought-after bachelors in London. He is also about to be publically jilted by some chit of a girl! Blake Stephens’ pride isn’t about to let him be humiliated, so he charges after his bride to the wilds of Scotland, determined to bring her to the altar.

What happens when the heart says yes?

He is promised to one woman, but discovers his soul stirred by . . . the chit’s sister! Lady Aileen Davidson’s reputation was ruined ages ago, which is why she’s buried herself in the country, but her fiery spirit and bold beauty threaten to bring Blake to his knees, making him wonder if he has proposed to the wrong lass.

And now he must make a choice: marry for honor . . . or marry for love?

 

MY THOUGHTS:

THE BRIDE SAYS NO by Cathy Maxwell is an exciting Regency Historical Romance set in 1807- 1816 Annefield, Scotland.  #1 in her latest release “The Brides of Wishmore” series. What a beginning! Bring on the brides, please!

Meet Lady Aileen Davidson,who has a scandalous past, a widow, and been abused  and  Blake Stephens,who is the bastard son of a duke,wealthy, trying to gain his father’s affection and Aileen’s younger sister’s fiancee.

Will Blake marry for love or honor? You see, he has become attracted to the passionate,scandalous Aileen instead of her sister, who has a few secrets of her own. His betrothed is in love with someone else! And a bit selfish, I believe, she believes everything is about her and her feelings. A little spoiled, to say the least, but likeable also.

Ms. Maxwell is a constant  storyteller who adds a grand mixture of romance, deceit, passion and love in her stories. I can hardly wait to see what’s next for this series. What a wonderful way to start a series, with two brides, with different ideas on love and marriage. But will they marry for love or let love slip them by for honor? You must read ” The Bride Says No”! You will not regret your choice of reading material.  It keeps you on your toes right up to the very last page. A great read!
