A wedding night was awkward in any event, and in their case awkwardness was layered upon awkwardness.

This is a very short novella, and unless you are reading the Charles/Melanie Fraser Malcolm/Suzanne Rannoch series written by Tracy Grant/Teresa Grant (depending on who the publisher is), you can easily pass this by. From the notes at the start, this novella was written at the request of fans who wanted to know a bit more about how this marriage of strangers came about. And while this book is fi

Muy bueno!!! Me gusta mucho este libro!! That is about as much high school Spanish that I know, so I will switch to English to better explain my thoughts on this delightful little sweet (while trying to avoid entwining a spoiler within this comment)
In the other books (list them), the meeting of S and M and their subsequent marriage is like having little glimpses and pieces of a puzzle that you put together in your own haphazard way…until this lovely book came out to answer all the questions and

This novella (available in e-book format only) describes the engagement and wedding of Suzanne and Malcolm Rannoch, the characters from Grant’s novels Vienna Waltz and
Imperial Scandal. It serves as a prequel to those novels, and fills in some gaps in her readers’ knowledge of Suzanne’s back story.

I absolutely love Grant’s writing. She does an excellent job of writing mysteries, and although the novella format doesn’t give her the usual amount of time to flesh out a story, she still manages to

Since I loved the first book I read from this author, I decided to try to read her novels in a chronological order instead of the order they were publishes. While the writing is the same easy flow and the story is interesting, I was still having a hard time to connect the characters to those in the Beneath of A Silent Moon. Not only because the names of the characters had to change when the author switched to a different publishing house, but some of their traits did not smoothly fit into those ...more

I enjoyed reading the Malcolm/Charles and Suzanne/Melanie wedding story. I'm glad I read it after DAUGHTER OF THE GAME/SECRETS OF A LADY, since it is in that book that the story of how they met is revealed. That knowledge provided the backstory for this novella. This series was written and published non-sequentially, so it is hard to know where to begin. Ms. Grant does provide a time-line for the books on her blog, so if you want to start at the date of setting for each publication, you can. Whe ...more

I really enjoyed this first book by Teresa Grant. I have been wanting to read her series for a while, and was not disappointed. Usually, I don't enjoy novellas because they are so short and seem lacking in storyline and character development. Not so with His Spanish Bride! I was intrigued with the plot and characters from the very beginning and wanted to know more about Malcolm and Suzanne. They both seem to have events in their backstory which will be great to uncover as well as seeing how thei ...more

Not much espionage here from our two spies, but this novella gives us a wonderful, rich picture of how Malcolm and Suzanne marry, whose child she carries, and, oh, along the way they solve a little mystery and problem that might have resulted in war between Britain and Spain. The relationship is already well underway before the novella opens, but its complications are multitudinous and seem to wax and wane as each alternately reaches out, then retreats into their spy deceptions and, well, lies. ...more
Three and a half stars

I don't often approach an established series by way of one its short stories/novellas. I generally prefer to get to know the characters through the series and then, if I feel the need to know more, read the extra material. In this case though I decided to reverse things since I was having some difficulty figuring out the starting point for the series itself. I figured stepping in with the wedding of the married couple that eventually headlines the rest of the books seemed l

Shelves: romance, mystery
One of the unexpected advantages of ebooks: Replacing the renamed characters with their originals. (The characters and the author were renamed when the series moved from HarperCollins to Kensington. I read the first of the new books in paper, and the new names threw me off the entire time.)

I'm not sure how this would work for people not already invested in the Rannoch/Fraser marriage, but I enjoyed this bit of backstory: the decisions and emotions (and denied emotions) that led to their marriage

The beginning of Malcolm and Suzanne's story. Just a short novella, but has a short mystery and reveals more about the characters.
Sep 18, 2014 Christina rated it really liked it
This was a good way to start the series and learn how these MCs met. Mystery was not bad, though not hard to figure out.

What a great short story, I look forward to continuing to read about Suzanne and Malcolm's adventures.

I really should have started reading the series in chronological order rather than the order that the books were published to avoid unnecessary confusion. Thank god for Goodreads who helpfully included the chronological order of the books as well as the publishing order. On the whole a great read, very interesting to get more details about Suzanne/Melanie and Malcolm/Charles's courtship and subsequent marriage and Suzanne's confliction about deceiving Malcolm, her target/husband.

Unbelievable ..sold as a novella..can't believe it was written by her it is so inane..

His Spanish Bride; another wonderfully written story by Tracy Grant!

I thoroughly enjoyed this novella. Having only read Vienna Waltz and Imperial Scandal (I've resisted reading the Charles and Melanie books so as to avoid spoilers) I really appreciate the insight His Spanish Bride gives -- how Malcolm and Suzanne began their life together. Just when I thought I couldn't possibly love Malcolm more... *swoon*.
Nov 26, 2012 Angie rated it really liked it
An enjoyable short prequel to this series... Definitely worth the read! Not a lot of focus is put on Christmas, although it is mentioned that its the holiday season. That doesn't detract from the story for me, but if you are looking for a holiday focused story this isn't really it. :) I really like her writing & characters though I don't like that she changed the characters names mid-series.

I am not a big fan of these mini books, but this one wasn't so mini, and it served to fill in SOME of the mysteries behind Suzanne and Malcolm's relationship.
