Be forewarned that it contains graphic violence and rape.
Catherine Coulter's second novel. It is the story of Katharine Brandon, whose fierce independence masks a deep loneliness-and a terrifying secret.

This book was almost gothic in the extreme issues surrounding both hero and heroine. As usual Mrs. Coulter's writing was impeccable, as was her characters' development. I found myself rooting for the couple even when I doubted that they could rise above their problems. I highly recommend this book although it is a bit slow in places. It grapples with human failings in the extreme. For a book, I believe, was meant to be a lighthearted romp I was surprised to see an attempt to excuse issues many readers might find inexcusable. This one will leave you thinking, "What would I have done?"

The rebel bride is Katharine Brandon, a hoyden with hair as red as an Irish sunset, and whose fierce independence masks a profound loneliness. When Julien St. Clair, earl of March, first sees her, she's dressed like a boy while engaged in a duel with her brother. Since it's her turn to be fatally wounded, she dies dramatically at Julien's feet.

In interesting beginning, don't you think? As for Julien, he's bored, restless, knows he's missing something in his life, he just don't know what-until he meets Katharine and he falls, hard. He wants her more than anything he's ever wanted in his life. He sets out on a courtship that doesn't end, however, the way he'd envisioned. But he doesn't give up. Finally, he gains a bride who, unfortunately, is terrified of him. But why?

From the glittering Regency ballrooms of 1814 London to Paris, and finally to Switzerland, where everything changes irrevocably between them, Julien finally discovers Katharine's shocking secret.

This book IS NOT part of the 'bride' trilogy.

I absolutely love this book. It's my second favorite Catherine Coulter book and it's in my top 5 favorite romance books of all time. Some people my find it disturbing. If you've read it, you know what I mean.

I don't read much romance, but a friend gave this to me, so read it. It really held my interest and I read late into the night. It's a re-issue, so lots of readers must have enjoyed it.

Dear Readers:

The original The Rebel Bride was first published in 1979. Just imagine. I rewrote it (published in 1994) and now it's being reissued, this time in very nice new clothes.

The rebel bride is Katharine Brandon, a hoyden with hair as red as an Irish sunset, and whose fierce independence masks a profound loneliness. When Julien St. Clair, earl of March, first sees her, she's dressed like a boy while engaged in a duel with her brother. Since it's her turn to be fatally wounded, she dies dramatically at Julien's feet.

An interesting beginning, don't you think? As for Julien, he's bored, restless, knows he's missing something in his life, he just doesn't know what--until he meets Katharine and he falls, hard. He wants her more than anything he's ever wanted in his life. He sets out on a courtship that doesn't end, however, the way he'd envisioned. But he doesn't give up. Finally, he gains a bride who, unfortunately, is terrified of him. But why?

From the glittering Regency ballrooms fo 1814 London to Paris and finally to Switzerland, where everything changes irrevocably between them Julien finally discovers Katharine's shocking secret.

If you missed the 1994 rewrit of The Rebel Bride, then give it a try now. Do let me know what you think. Write me at P.O. Box 17, Mill Valley, CA 94942 ro e-mail me at ReadMoi@aol.com

The rebel bride is Katharine Brandon, a hoyden with hair as red as a stormy sunset whose fierce independence masks her loneliness. When Julien ST. Clair, Earl of March, sees her for the first time, she is dressed like a boy while engaged in a rather mock duel with her brother. And since it's her turn to be fatally wounded, she dies dramatically at Julien's feet. A powerful, sophisticated nobleman who is bored and restless with a life that holds little more interest for him, the earl finds himself suddenly and thoroughly bewitched by this unusual young lady. But when he decides he wants her, he discovers that all is not what it seems. From the glittering Regency ballrooms of 1814 London, to Paris, and finally to Switzerland, the earl and his unwilling bride play a dangerous game of passion, until everything changes irrevocably between them...and Julien discovers Katharine's terrifying secret.Hard to find book. One of Coulter's best romances.

If you read the original Rebel Bride, do read it again. "I've rewritten this story of two stubborn, strong-willed people, the Topaz is bringing it out again for you,, this time as the historical it could have been
