How to Lose a Bride in One Night

How to Lose a Bride in One Night (Forgotten Princesses #3) by Sophie Jordan



He saved her life...

When Annalise Hadley is tossed over the side of her honeymoon barge, the newly-minted duchess knows she's been left for dead -- for her husband's only interest is in her vast dowry, not her muddied lineage. However, she didn't count on a savior. Especially not an honorable, sinfully intriguing earl who will tempt her to risk everything—again.

Now he will seduce her heart and soul.

A man with his own demons, Owen Crawford, the reclusive Earl of McDowell, is enchanted by the mysterious, courageous woman he rescued. He will help her heal, teach her to protect herself, and then send her away—so that she’ll never see he’s far from the hero she believes him to be.

But days and nights alone prove that some secrets are meant to be discovered...some desires are too powerful to resist…and some wounds can only be healed by love.



4 out of 5 stars

Historical Romance isn’t something I normally gravitate towards but I thought the premise of the story was interesting so I wanted to give it a try. I am so glad I did. This was an excellent story!

I loved the characters. Annalise was a strong woman, never whiny or feeling sorry for herself. That was quite refreshing. I thought Owens character was really intriguing and looked forward to every detail that was revealed about his life. Annalise and Owen were great together, with a strong connection and attraction. This was such a well written story, it really created a sense of longing for me of wanting them to be together.

I really enjoyed their interactions together and it was great having a bit of adventure and intrigue thrown in. The pace was good and I couldn’t put it down. There’s a slow build with their intimacy that really made this story romantic but enough heat to keep me wanting more. I thought that slow build was totally worth it! ;-)

How to Lose a Bride in One Night is book 3 in a series but it’s a stand alone book. I’ve learned that some of the characters mentioned in this story are in the other stories as well. I’m actually interested enough that I’d read the other books in the series to learn more about them. I am so glad I tried something new and stepped outside of my box. I really enjoyed it!
