    The parents of the children in her care were mean spirited and strict toward their governess, Abigail Chantry, so when she learned of her sister Jane along with two friends, Daisy and Damaris, being in dire straits and needing safety, their refusal to allow the girls under their roof didn t surprise Abby The four girls swore to stay together forever sisters in all but blood though of course Jane was Abby s sister their struggles to survive sent them in a direction they would never have dre The parents of the children in her care were mean spirited and strict toward their governess, Abigail Chantry, so when she learned of her sister Jane along with two friends, Daisy and Damaris, being in dire straits and needing safety, their refusal to allow the girls under their roof didn t surprise Abby The four girls swore to stay together forever sisters in all but blood though of course Jane was Abby s sister their struggles to survive sent them in a direction they would never have dreamed they d head.Lord Max Davenham had been away from England for nine long years he had left his elderly Aunt Beatrice to be care...

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here I loved the story in this first book in the start of a new historical romance series My lower rating stems from the fact that the actual romance between the main characters was very low In fact, even the sex in this did not exist until the end of the book On the positive side, the story line was wonderful and highly entertaining I m moving right along to the next ...

    I understand this is the first book in a series, but part of what turned me off was the long setup and backstory of everyone involved There s also very little passion and a halfhearted mystery plot that I just couldn t get behind.The backstory takes a deep breath The heroine, Abigail rescues her sister, Jane, and two other girls from a brothel after Jane is abducted from a genteel poorhouse and almost forced into prostitution She is narrowly saved from having her virginity auctioned off to I understand this...

    At the beginning I had to check if this was really a romance novel or if it was kind of Oliver Twist type of bookThe beginning is bleak and I felt very sorry for Abby She was treated like dirt and, even if I knew it was normal in that period, I felt for her Also the brothel scene was bad the thought that girls really were sold like cattle is a sad demonstration of how low a human can fallBut after a while, we re introduced to Lady Beatrice and it is then that things get good I loved L At the beginning I had to check if this was really a romance novel or if it was kind of Oliver Twist type of bookThe beginning is bleak and I felt very sorry for Abby She was treated like dirt and, even if I knew it was normal in that period, I felt for her Also the brothel scene was bad the thought that girls really were sold like cattle is a sad demonstration of how low a human can fallBut after a while, we re introduced to Lady Beatrice and it is then that things get good I loved Lady Beatrice and her speach so direct and so fun I could picture her in my mind so well She s the best character in the whole book and she alone deserves 5 shining stars I loved the interaction of the sisters too It was nice and heart ...

    Having only recently completed Anne Gracie s, The Perfect Rake, the first in The Merridew Sisters series, I am a tad disappointed that The Autumn Bride didn t quite come up to the same standard Notwithstanding this, this series is still looking to be a good solid series With Aunt Bea and Freddy Monkton Coombes looking to be excellent secondary characters.Abigail Chantry and her sister Jane were orphaned at an early age and Abi has assumed the caring role for her sister, 6 years her junior Abi Having only r...

    I had a really tough time with the beginning of this book Slavery is bad enough, but sex slavery pushes all my buttons and the main character confronts that right up front, learning her sister has been abducted and Abby must act now to save her I cringed at Abby s gullibility I mean, she doesn t know this person leading her into seamy sections of town even as I feared for the sister Gracie doesn t sugarcoat this section and the characters react as you d expect when facing such horror.The bo I had a really tough time with the beginning of this book Slavery is bad enough, but sex slavery pushes all my buttons and the main character confronts that right up front, learning her sister has been abducted and Abby must act now to save her I cringed at Abby s gullibility I mean, she doesn t know this person leading her into seamy sections of town even as I feared for the sister Gracie doesn t sugarcoat this section and the characters react as you d expect when facing such horror.The book lightens enough I could breathe relatively quickly, though the threat lingers a bit What this section excels at is establishing Abby s character and essential motivations seeing to the safety of her family and supporting her friends is paramount to her Abby is a fundamentally caring person, a little na ve, but from a place that makes her strong, even fierce, like the proverbial lioness and her cubs I loved her devotion to her sisters and late...

    16 7 3.5 stars The Autumn Bride is a light and fluffy romantic comedy, it s not what comes to mind when I think of romance books I was surprised to find I really enjoyed it because it doesn t really have much depth or all that much romance In order there s a male fantasy involving whipped cream, a kiss, a naked male chest, and finally another kiss quickly followed by the last chapter where the only sex scene happened Really, I ...
