Lady Eleanor knows better than to dream of romance and love. Married twice to secure her fathers alliances, she has learned that she is desirable only for her fortune. When the Laird of Kinfairlies sisters ask her to wed their brother, Alexander, Eleanor agrees, exxpecting only to save herself from danger. But Alexander is like no man she's known before, a man more interested in courting her smile than her obedience, a man who values her counsel as much as her newly awakened passion and a man unaware that Eleanor is the key to a fortune that could ensure the future of everything he holds dear.
Last book in an excellent trilogy. Sisters get back their brother by arranging his marriage to a mysterious young lady in need of protection. Many misunderstandings cause a delightly full up and down emotional ride.
Cute. Hope there are books to this series.
This is a great trilogy. I have the first two also.
I really enjoyed the characters in this book and look forward to reading the series...
Love the characters! Try to get all of her books because the characters start out in previous books
Scottish lord Alexander Lammergeier, having tricked two of his sisters into marriage in Delacroix's earlier medieval Bride romances (The Beauty Bride; The Rose Red Bride), finally gets duped into his own nuptials in this heavy-handed third installment. Lady Eleanor, Alexander's mysterious new bride, can't bring herself to trust him with her secrets, so when someone makes an attempt on Alexander's life, Eleanor naturally comes under scrutiny. Rather than trusting Alexander, who's portrayed as an all-around good guy, Eleanor continues to lie to him, which only breeds more distrust. Her secret-that she's had two abusive husbands who died inexplicably and who were only after her father's legacy-is torn from her with painstaking and melodramatic fanfare
