Robber Bride (The de Burghs #3)

3.52 of 5 stars 3.52  ·  rating details  ·  205 ratings  ·  17 reviews

This was the litany Simon de Burgh chanted whenever he gazed upon Bethia Burnel. Gifted with fighting prowess to rival any of his knights, the maddening woman had laid siege to his vision of how the world should be - and captured his heart in the battle!

Simon de Burgh was infuriating - full of raw power and male conviction, even when Bethia had him bou

After devouring Taming the Wolf and the De Burgh Bride, I was eagerly awaiting Simon's story. While this is a "not to be missed series", Robber Bride left much to be desired.

Robber Bride is much more "battle focused" than "romance focused". I guess this is what I should've expected with Simon's story as he is the "warrior" of the bunch. What I didn't expect was to feel such apathy for these characters. I guess this is a matter of preference, but I like my heroines tough, but also "soft". They n

Bu macerada Simon De Burgh'un hikayesi vardı..
Bir gün aniden bir çete tarafından yolu kesileip altedilen Simon'u kaçıran bir erkek değil bir kadında elbette..Simon DE Burgh kardeşlerinin içinde belkide en sert acımasızı değildi yada en bilegesi ama en tedbirsizi ve akılsızı olduğu da kesindi:))
Şimdiye kadar kadınlarla sınırlı ilişkisi ile Bethia Burnel ile baş edebileceği şüpheliydi..Bethia Burnel varolma savaşı içind
Kitap güzeldi hoştu da Simon önceki kitaplardaki Simon gibi değildi hiç tamam aşık oldu adam daha önce kadınlarla hiç ilgilenmediği için afallamış olabilir ama nerede o savaşçı Simon :D
Neyse bakalım sıradaki kardeşi evlendirmeden önce ara kitabı okuyup noelde gelen sürpriz misafiri öğrenelım bakalım :D
Ehh işte diyorum. Dişimin kovuğunu bile doldurmadı.
Book 3 in the de Burgh series

It’s Simon’s turn to be smitten by a woman! But, not just any woman could catchy the always-on-the-move-battling de Burgh brother. A warrior woman, Bethia Burnel, who is held up in the forest, leading a band of men who remain faithful to her in order to win back what is rightfully hers, would do for Simon.

It sounds like a great premise for a book, right? I sure thought so! However, I did not enjoy this story as much as numbers 1, 2, and 3.5. I thought that both Simo
Neste livro "Duelo de Poder" conhecemos a história do robusto, teimoso e arrogante Simon De Burgh e da exótica, brava, corajosa Bethia Burnel, uma mulher tão guerreira quanto Simon.

Quando Simon e os seus companheiros caem numa emboscada e percebem que a cabecilha do grupo é uma mulher, Bethia, Simon perde a cabeça. O jeito arrogante e o modo masculino que Bethia apresenta irritam-no, mas também atraem-o.

Apesar de revoltado com o comportamento de Bethia, Simon não pode negar que ela o fascina, a

Sem dúvida alguma, Simon é o De Burgh mais irritante. Mas, como tudo tem dois lados, ele também é o mais hilário quando está apaixonado.

E o que dizer da "moderninha" Bethia, admirável, pq é uma guerreira, literalmente, pois, viver numa época em que as mulheres são consideras meros bibelôs, que enfeitam a cama dos cavalheiros. Ela comandar arqueiros é uma verdadeira façanha.

Então, imagine esses dois cabeças dura junto
The female lead in this romance (Bethia) is patterned after Robin Hood. A different take from the normal historical romance. I just wish I had known this was part of a series when I picked this one. It was ok, but I am not going to read the rest of the series.

i have this in e-book format.

This is your typical alpha male historical romance. Except it had a twist. Whereas in other alpha male romance books the guy gets the girl and is slowly 'tamed' by her gentleness. And she accepts that he is all wise and knowing and agrees to be lead by him. or in some more progressive cases to subtlety lead him without him knowing it. This time the alpha male is bested again and again by his own chauvinistic ways. and int he end, i won't be spoiling this for you by s

Dunstan'ın hikayesine göre çok daha durgun bir kitaptı. Evet heyecanla başladı ve heyecanlı bir sonla bitti ama ortalarda çok durgun bölümler vardı. Yazar daha çoğunlukla duygulara yöneltmiş gibiydi kalemini... Yine de güzeldi De Burgh serisini sevenler tabi ki bunu da sevecekler :)
1,5 stars.
Simon was a bit annoying. I didn't like what he thoughts about women. D:
Whatever. Could've been better. =__=

I simply could not get into this. Loved the girl, loathed the guy. Simon got on my nerves to the point that I couldn't barely finish. Bethia clearly deserved a man that wasn't a complete &@$#.

This was a fun flipped Robinhood-esque story, one of several about the de Burgh brothers.
Really liked it!
