Recommend reading the series. Love anything by Putney.
This 3rd book in the Bride Trilogy was as excellent as the 1st two ... each book was unique and wonderfully written! The characters and storylines were fascinating in each book.
Boring and long winded. Pass on this one.
Good story, with some interesting charecters from her Bride and Fallen Angel's series. The heroine is Cahterine's daughter from Micheal's story.

Third book in the Bride Trilogy.
I thorougly enjoyed reading this book!
Unabridged. Predictable plot, but interesting characters.
It is rare that I feel I really must write a review. This book was really bad! I usually love Mary Jo Putney, but if you haven't read this one, please give it a pass. I sped read the beginning and kept thinking it must get better. It never did. I have never like rape in novels, I lost track of the number of times it was described, enacted or discussed in this book. The description of how the main character serviced her husband - really, does this have to be described at all? Just yuck! I used to keep Putney's on my shelf as a sure to fulfill "good read". No longer. I am kind of scared to open another after this one.
Merchant prince Gavin Elliot saves Alexandra Warren from slavery in the East Indies.
