His Stolen Bride
His Stolen Bride (Brother in Arms Book 2) - Shayla Black,Shelley Bradley

I listened to this book. It wasn't as terrible as I'd expected. Definitely uber cheesy. I've also have never read this author, I know she write some hard core romance (erotica) but I'd say this is very tame. There are some terrible analogies, and a horrible irish accent for the audio. BUT, I was expecting to not even finish this. So I was pleasantly surprised and enjoyed the overall plot. I may read this author again knowing to be careful of my selections. 

 

It also definitely doesn't matter if you have read the first one. May have to give that one a try. I assume its about one of the other men in the books :).

The Stolen Bride Saves The Rancher, Indiana Wake
Mail Order Bride: The Stolen Bride Saves... Mail Order Bride: The Stolen Bride Saves the Rancher: A Clean Western Historical Romance (Three Big Beautiful Brides Head West Book 3) - Indiana Wake,Belle Fiffer

I really enjoyed this clean, historical, western romance. I voluntarily chose to review it. I've given it a 5* rating. I liked that it dealt with a fact that many communities dealt with and that was contaminated water supply, which still happens to this day, only from different type of circumstances. The youngest sister of these three, who was shy, came into her own in this story. This does have a small amount of violence in it. Onto the next.

Great historical romance
His Stolen Bride (Stolen Brides Series) by Shelly Thacker (2015-05-26) - Shelly Thacker;

His Stolen Bride by Shelly Thacker is a fantastic read.  Ms Thacker has provided readers with a well written book, complete with amazing characters.  Darach and Laurien's story is full of action, drama, sizzle and suspense.  This fast paced story had me glued to my kindle from start to finish.  I enjoyed reading His Stolen Bride and look forward to reading more from Shelly Thacker in the future.  His Stolen Bride is book 0.5 of the Stolen Brides Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

Jacobite rebellion
The Stolen Mackenzie Bride - Jennifer Ashley

"Very well, then." Mary's chin came up. "I will sneak to Kilmorgan with you."

Malcolm closed his eyes and pinched the bridge of his nose. "Ye aren't going t' be an obedient and unquestioning wife, I'm thinking, are ye?"

"Certainly not. Englishwomen are resilient creatures. I do not know why people assume we are sweet and docile, innocent and weak." Mary unfolded her arms and rested her hands primly in her lap. "Look at Boadicea, who led forces against the Roman army for a long, long time, Queen Elizabeth, who often had to remark she was 'only a woman' to spare the feelings of gentlemen she could out-think. Even Aunt Danae has survived three husbands and is entertaining thoughts of a fourth, on her own terms. You have no need to worry about me."

A slow smile had spread across Malcolm's face as he listened to her speech. When she finished, his eyes were alight, the depths of gold warm.

"Ye see? I knew ye had fire inside you, lass. An inferno of it. You and me---we're going to burn up the world."

 

If you like reading about the Jacobite Rebellion,you'd enjoy this one. Malcolm and Mary start off with a "look across the room" kind of romance, which I normally don't like, but it works here because everything that follows that look is hard earned love. The beginning was full of mentions of Jacobite political figures, the climate and atmosphere, and how everyday people (our MacKenzie family) maneuvered around the going ons. I was kind of disappointed when in the middle, we lose a little bit of that (I'm a history nerd) and the story focuses more on our couple Malcolm and Mary. The building blocks of their relationship are created here, making their love more believable from their auspicious start, while the political atmosphere hovered around them but wasn't the focus. The last half reengaged with the Jacobite Rebellion and our couple fighting to stay together. The Battle of Culloden was featured here in a way I've not often seen it, less focus on the battle stratagems and fighting and more on the emotional devastation as it was happening. Our hero is there while family and friends are cut down and how mercilessness the English were about ending the rebellion; it was harrowing to read. 

Even though this is #8 in the series, it can actually be read as a standalone as it's a prequel, the hero is the great-great-or so-grandfather of the previous heroes in the series. 

This had a little different tone than usual romance reads, devastating emotional that this time period can only be, but was better for it. If you're looking to read about a family and couple caught up in the swirling political times, look no further.

The Stolen Mackenzie Bride - Jennifer Ashley

"You'll ruin me," she whispered.

Malcolm studied her, his amber-colored gaze intense. "Marry me,lass,and I'll ruin ye every day."
