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.
The Rebel Bride is Catherine Coulter's second novel. It is the story of Katharine Brandon, a hoyden whose fierce independence masks a deep loneliness-and a terrifying secret.
It's intriguing to watch these two very strong-willed and passionate people, both with their secrets, teach, and learn from each other ... about love and other measures.
This is the orignal regency book
