This book and you l find ut LOL 4 45 stars Historical RomanceOh but this was a nice surprise Two romances in this Boarding House of Hunks one and I especially loved the secondary MM romance between sweet Lord Sydney and gruff farmer Lucas In fact I think theirsutshined that f the primary couple Isla and Hugh This ne was Bec (The Demonata, okay but not as good as AB has delivered in the past The story reads like two separate novellas mergingne concerning the main characters Scottish Isla Ramsey and the Maruess Pierce Hugh Courtney and the The Further Mishaps of Charlie Chumpkins other featuring Isla s betrothed and BFF Lord Sydney and his love interest taciturn sensitive farmer Lucas Dean So by now everyoneught to know that the latter story is a MM romance not a subgenre I normally read but Sydney s and Lucas s romance was actually the delicate and well told ne ut f the two Apart from the fact that it developed ver a few days nly there was depth the emotional connection felt genuine than just instant lust Isla and Hugh had such extremes f emotions from the start From love despite them barely knowing Our Planet: Our Home one another to angry estrangementver a simple misunderstanding and refusal to communicate to love again This gave rise to many melodramatic moments invariably involving her bolting Kakoong, Pahlawan Pulau Awan Vol. 8 off into the stormyutdoors and him coming to the rescue Just stay put and talk it ver already I didn t really buy the fact that they fell in love as almost strangers and hence did not feel the pain f their estrangement So get this Sydney and Isla were uickly betrothed before the book started in an effort to shield Isla from a scandal even though Isla was in love with Hugh and Sydney was aware Journeys of Frodo: An Atlas of J.R.R.Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings of his predilection for hiswn gender Hugh then proceeded to arrange his wn hasty engagement to Lady Juliana who as it turned ut loved another man who proposed marriage to her soon after she became betrothed to Hugh In this messy entanglement it bothers me immensely that all these affianced people dishonoured their vows emotionally and physically in the course f the book and felt little remorse in the process f doing so There was talk f self sacrifice but the talks should have happened before any act f infidelity not afterwards I prefer them to pine and hold ff until they can free themselves from their commitments As I said above it felt like two separate novellas and almost eual time was devoted to each romance meaning that there wasn t as much attention to details and complexity in the plot and the characterisations Though the blurb doesn t mention it The Wayward Bride is about not ne but TWO separate romances and gay romance lovers rejoice because we got A Stepdaughter In Heat (Daddy Daughter Sex Stories) ourselves a lovely and unexpected love story Anna Bradley isne f my favorite historical romance autho 45 stars Love is many things but easy isn t ne f themThis was a lovely continuation f the story In the End of three siblings that started in Morer less a temptress I guess it could stand n it s n but I would definitely say it makes sense if you know where the siblings and Isla in particular are coming from I do think if you d read this without having met Isla she would make less sense And speaking f I still can t decide whether r not I really like her That s what it always came back to while I was figuring ut my rating One the ne hand she made some impulsive stupid and reckless decisions ften risking her life without a second thought When you know about her though it does make sense As we discovered in More r less a temptress and are reminded f here too view spoilerIsla was raped when she was younger Her brother pulled the man ff her and accidentally killed him for which they were basically run ut f Scotland and sought a new start in London hide spoiler The Wayward Bride was a fantastic read that features two wonderful romancesIn six weeks Isla Ramsey is set to marry the Earl f Sydney but her heart still belongs to Hugh Courtney the Maruess Pierce Pierce led Isla to believe their romance was forever nly to toss her aside when she was touched by scandal As Isla awaits her new fianc s arrival a terrible snow storm forces her to take refuge at Hugh s estate where the two must confront the feelings that

relationship moves fairly slowly despite the bvious attraction between the pair The fact that the two come from vastly different worlds created doubts in Lucas that take time for Sydney to work his
