A Bride Most Begrudging

My sister lent me this book because she thought I might enjoy the main character's spirited attitude. She quite enjoyed her snappy attitude herself. Here's the books description as found on
"When Lady Constance Morrow finds herself held against her will aboard a ship bound for the American colonies—a ship filled with "tobacco brides" and felons—she is quite sure that as soon as she arrives she will find a reasonable man who will believe her father is an earl and send her back on the next ship to England. Instead she meets Drew O’Connor, a determined Colonial farmer who is nearly as headstrong as she is. Drew wins Constance as his bride but soon realizes he has taken on much more than he bargained for "

MY REVIEW:It was a nice read and I have to admit that I DO like Constance's headstrong manner. However, I did find it a tiny bit Harlequin romance novel-ish.(If that's even a word) Upon reading other reviews on Amazon, I was not alone in this thinking. I really wish there were more clean romance novels that are comical at the same time. Overall, a funny, sometimes tear jerking, good read.

  1. If you like fantasy-type books and want a cute, clean romance try the Dealing with Dragons series (romance starts in the second book) by Patricia Wrede or the Dragon Slippers series by Jessica Day George. Makes it sound like I'm obsessed with Dragons or something but I think they're really cute stories. Slippers series is written by an LDS author.
