"2.5 stars" Based on the synopsis, I really thought that The Wedding Bargain was going to be a book that I would enjoy mainly because of the unusual nature of the setting and characters. There aren't a whole lot of romances set in the American Colonial period to be found, so that alone was intriguing to me. Add to that a Puritan heroine who is struggling with a desire to be independent from her male-dominated society and a hero who is her indentured servant, and you have
This one didn't really do it for me. The writing is very descriptive, but...I found the narrative voice kind of weird. While I don't necessarily expect historical accuracy, there were just times it read more as a late-1800s European historical than the set-in-1757 colonial America story that it purports to be.

The characters were decent and Rafe is a tortured hero, but I didn't really latch onto them and feel an emotional investment in their HEA.

This book also has anklebiters (Charity's twin boys

Emily writes for Harlequin Historicals. She enjoys writing about the past, because there are a lot of issues you can raise in a historical novel that become more difficult in a contemporary novel. Her books are set in many different periods: 1204 in Wales, 1640 Wisconsin and 1757 Connecticut through to 1842 Maine and the Manhattan of 1865. Emily’s heroines are women who were unable to do the sorts ...more
