Carmen believed her new English husband to be dead after the terrible battle which occurred soon after their wedding ceremony. Only the knowledge that she had killed ger tormentor and escaped from the French with a precious new life growing inside of her keeps her from giving in to her grief.
Six years later, Carmen travels to England with her lovely blond daughter to discover the identity of the blackmailer who is writing terrible lies about her and her part in that battle. Not only is her husband alive, he believes the lies that have been written. How can she trust him with the knowledge of their daughter, when he believes her to be a traitor and a whore?
THE SPANISH BRIDE, by the immensely talented Amanda McCabe, brings us the bittersweet tale of two people who believe that all their chances at love have died in the ashes of war, only to find that the warmth of true love can thaw even the coldest of angers.
