    So after reveiwing and rating the first book in the series favorably, it pains me a little to one star this one The concept of the series is excellent enough, and I thought that the suspense action plot was seamless within the entire plot some romances add a suspence story line that just doesnt flow Why did I dislike the book Because Nicola Cornick gave us the heroine from hell I read parts of the book with my mouth open in shock The part where the heroine rides her horse NAKED into the GENTLEMAN S CLUB that her husband was at to get his attention was too much Now what struck me as being hollow, was the fact that the heroine kept bemoaning how much she loved the hero, and he does not love her back But instead of trying to win his love, or get to know him or SOMETHING, she acts like a crazy person I don t even think I have read a contemporary romance or even erotic romance where someone parades naked, on an animal to get their spouse s attention I am sorry that just reeks of mental instability Oh, and there was the part where she ran off with someone else because she a married lady was leaving the hero Because she loved him, and he did not love her So you know, the adult thing is to leave town WITH ANOTHER MAN Throughout the book, the heroine was flighty, mean spirited and immature I would recommend this book only to find out what happens in the story, not for the romance Comment Permalink

    This book couldn t hold my attention It started out with a too stupid to live moment from the female lead and went downhill from there At one point, she rides Lady Godiva style through her husbands club, up the stairs horses don t do that easily then jumps from the second floor balcony without injuring the horse What was even fantastical and unbelievable everyone in the community never said boo to her about it The author even says the people present admired her for her spirit or something equally silly The author also tries to force the reader to believe her brother who impregnated the daughter of a duke without marrying her and intended to allow his friends to rape the main character while he conducted an orgy at her house is worthy of the main character s love and sisterly devotion I also had a problem with the hero of the story blatantly telling the main character he s marrying her for her money and then her getting upset and running off into the night later in the book when her brother says the exact same thing This is all after the book starting off with the main character locking herself and the hero in a tower and having sex with him on purpose to keep him from marrying someone else She got what she wanted and she still acted like the injured party.The I write about what bothered me, the I think I should rate this book lower.

    Both the Heroine Lizzie and the Heroine Nat, Duke of Waterhouse were unlikeable Lizzie was so silly I did not care what happened to her, and Nat was aloof and distant except when he wasn t in bed with his wife The story of Lydia and Tom was left unfinished, as she had the baby at the end and there was no communicaton..Was glad to see that Dexter and Laura had their son Also wished the story of Flora Minchin and Alice Lister s brother was better developed It was an effort to finish this book, not a satisfying conclusion to the trilogy.

    Book 3 in The Brides of Fortune seriesOnce again, a winner for Nicola She is a must buy author of mine for a very good reason.To save her friend from a loveless marriage, Lady Elizabeth kidnaps Nathaniel He is not happy to say the least Things quickly heat up and go beyond what either was expecting A perfect conclusion to this highly desirable series which is on my keeper shelf to never be given away I will want to re read this often.

    When we meet up with Lady Elizabeth in her book, she s getting ready to commit a very serious crime But it s in the name of love and friendship, so she doesn t hesitate Her friend Nat Waterhouse is making a mistake marrying one of the local heiresses and Lizzie is not about to stand by and do nothing about it The only thing to do is kidnap the man, hold him hostage until the time of the wedding has come and gone, and then let him go Nice and simple Problem solved Or so she thought.Nat, of course, is none too happy once she pulls off her caper, and when she refuses to release him, it s his cajoling about her impulsiveness and wont for trouble that eventually causes trouble for them both He pushes her a little too far and Lizzie steps up to the plate to prove to Nat how far she will go to follow through when it comes to her schemes This time it s Nat who loses control when passion ignites between them and Lizzie is ruined when they make love.Calling off his wedding is Nat s only choice so he can marry Lizzie It s actually the best plan, she gets the protection of his name and he gets her dowry that will help keep his secrets where they belong But Lizzie knows Nat doesn t love her and she refuses to live a lifetime without love She holds out as long as she can, but Nat wears her down and they eventually marry And that s when the formerly high spirited, do anything miss becomes the outrageous, broken hearted Mrs Waterhouse who pulls stunts the like of which the folks of Fortune s Folly have never seen.Danger and mystery are also afoot throughout this book, and, as usual, Ms Cornick gives us the slip and throws a culprit at us that we never expected I do have to say that Lizzie is my favorite character of the series Though her stunts are a little much for her times, you feel the hurt and desperateness that cause her to forge head without thought And kudos to Nat for hanging in there with her, just like a husband should.See my complete review at

    I jumped into this book without reading any of the previous books in the series and really shouldn t have The main couple s relationship was frustratingly rushed, and the progression of each from strong attraction to realizing they were in love didn t have much emotional impact for me The secondary characters kind of blended together so many couples and the resolution of the main mystery which came out of nowhere I thought this was a standard can t deny our urges book when all of a sudden someone was murdered, and then not really investigated didn t make sense I gather from context that most of the story was the culmination of events from a prior book Still, I read the whole thing and enjoyed quite a bit of it The town s charming I probably won t try the rest of the series.

    Review Probably my least favourite of the trilogy I much preferred Scandals of an Innocent However, I really liked Elizabeth as a character, and how she grew up through her marriage, and her dissection of her mother s actions I do wish had been seen of Nat s family There was one mention of a very ill father, but nothing further.Genre Historical RomanceCharacters Elizabeth Scarlet Nathaniel Waterhouse Laura Anstruther Miles Vickery Dexter Anstruther Tom FortuneSetting Fortune s Folly England Series Brides of Fortune 3Recommend Yes.Rating 14 20
