Bride By MistakeEight years ago Lieutentant Luke Ripton made a hasty wartime marriage in name only to protect a young girl from a forced union and left her protected in a remote mountain convent Now Luke is Lord Ripton but he has been unable to obtain an annullment Which leaves him no choice I enjoyed this book very much Most of that is down to Isabella What a fantastic heroine I liked her courage determination and her open heart I particularly liked how she couldn't help but dream of better things even as she recognizes them as just dreamsLuke was less appealing He wasn't so much autocratic as outright dictatorial and that made him less attractive by far Fortunately he learned to roll with Bella's defiance he took being forced to chase her sidesaddle very well and that's an image that still makes me giggle in remembrance and work with her and eventually respect her in ways I love to see in a romance novel Which means he ends up very attractive indeedThe plot of this one was relatively basic and leaned a lot on Bella learning to match dream to reality while trying to take care of her past This happened in mostly organic ways though I think Gracie stretched things a line too far when view spoilerLa Cuchillo the assassinspy who had tortured Luke during the war actually turned up forcing a confrontation with Luke's past It was simply way way too much of a coincidence and felt very contrived And the contrivances permeate that encounter pretty heavily even beyond simply finding her at a random dinner hide spoiler

PDF ì BOOK Bride By Mistake ↠ Eight years ago Lieutentant Luke Ripton made a hasty wartime marriage in name only to protect a young girl from a forced union and left her protected in a remote mountain convent Now Luke is Lord Ripton but he has been unable to obtain an annullment Which leaves him no choice but to claim a wife he doesn't wantFor nearly aBut to claim a wife he doesn't wantFor nearly a decade Isabella has waited like a princess locked in a tower dreaming of her handsome dark haired prince Her dreams are shattered when Luke reveals himself not as a prince but an autocratic soldier expecting her unuestioning ob At one point in my HR reading life I would actively seek out new Anne Gracie novels I remember for example reading her Perfect series and especially liking the first one THE PERFECT RAKEBut since then they're a bit been there done that plotwise and even that would be OK in a Regency romance because what really happened during that period in English history except for war with the French and apparently really handsome young dukes falling in love with really beautiful upper or even lower class women So the trick of writing a good Regency HR is in the romance and character developmentAt least Gracie has given us a baron not a duke as hero Guess the ton ran out of unmarried dukes And the heroine is Spanish and attractive rather than beautiful And the story takes place in Spain So there we have a bit of deviation from the usual setting and characters And how often does a heroine in an HR have churros with chocolate for breakfastUnfortunately this difference is not put to good use The story romance and character development is not very good Everybody is cookie cutter Our baron is a whiny petulant jerk the heroine is immature silly and thoughtless Lust is the only attraction I could find between the two Who could love either one of them How could they love each other And the secondary characters are no better They're cartoonish in their characterization Baddies and good folk alike fall on their faces in their flatnessIMO the love story is unbelievable and the mystery about spies is weak and somewhat silly Really only a good read for a diehard Gracie fan and even at that it's not worth purchasing That's what libraries are for

Edience which is something Isabella's fiercely independent nature will not tolerateAnd while Luke and Isabella's fiery personalities clash at every turn they remain bound to their vows never expecting that the passionate fury they share could become passion of a different kin Endearing pair of characters lovely change of pace with the Spain setting it felt very steeped with history and such vivid descriptions of the landscape factions and impact of war The gypsy dance was intense and almost a visual it was so vividly described This book had so many detailed accounts of food and delicacies that I was constantly feeling hungry for things I couldn't have while reading in the am hoursI also liked the portrayal of all the side characters who somehow did not seem one dimensional It started a bit slowlycheesily but it was well worth the time Only complaint I have is that the ending was a wee bit pat I mean seriously did we have to tie everything up so very neatly Things from the past were dredged up and placed in the most unlikely proximity for the most fake overly convenient denouement possible The author ripped out curved seams forcibly restitched them straight double stitched for strength zig zagged and overlocked the edges Talk about overkill Not everything needs to be that neatly aligned the whole castle seuence could have been skipped and the book stronger for it She even got rid of his traumatic past token reminder Smh Still a fun read And I enjoyed how much time they spent together with no interruptions from outside forces or persons It remained engaging and entertaining throughout Even with its unscheduled stop at Crazytown Station
