The Bride Says No by Cathy Maxwel $1.99!
[ THE BRIDE SAYS NO: THE BRIDES OF WISHMORE (BRIDES OF WISHMORE #1) ] By Maxwell, Cathy ( Author) 2014 [ Compact Disc ] - Cathy Maxwell

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?

A mediocre reading month...some good...some not so good, some good but long (everything under the sun).  I listened to more books than I physically read this month by far, including a re-listen/read for an old favorite.  I did not read a single arc...I think that's due to me feeling like I don't want to be a guinea pig for new books.  Essentially, that's what you are, after all, which is the price you pay for being able to read books before they come out.  I'm just not sure if I want to do it anymore.

My Thoughts

 

I think I would have liked this even more than I did if I had read it…I don't know if it just the narrator that I didn't like, or something else.  I only took a little off for that, though, because The Magician is addictively entertaining.  A time traveling, magic wielding, good time.  The history, the splashes of romance and the intrigue make this a very worthwhile read.

 

Will I continue this series Yes, I totally will…I just wish it had a different narrator.
