I made it to fifty percent, and let me tell you - that was one hell of a struggle.

This book was originally intended to close Catherine Coulter's Brides Series. The first three novels (in what later became a much longer series) featured a set of siblings, each with their own happily-ever-after. To be honest, I had some problems with the first two books. I thought the heroines took too much, the heroes dished out too much, and the resolutions were poorly crafted. I probably shouldn't have eve
"Read" the Audio CD version. Enjoyed this a damn sight more than "The Hellion Bride," which had me wanting to kill Sophie and Ryder, both of them, less than a third of the way in. After having read (or listened to) a number of other books where our heroine is a side character, and/or a young'un, hearing her story as an adult was a lot of fun. (And I say again, what IS it with Sherbrooke and Sherbrooke-associated males abjectly bungling their wedding nights?)

What can i say about this novel? That it infuriated me to the point of wanting to hit the hero in the head and punch the heroine? While i do understand the reviews about the hero being a jerk and a possible rapist, i don't understand the liking on the heroine. Jesus, what a spoiled, idiot , too stupid to live brat she was. I don't care about this kind of female carachters. Doing stupid things,lying and putting themselves and other people in danger, not listening to common sense and all this beca ...more
For a time back in the 80’s & 90’s, my reading material of choice was frequently bodice rippers, historical fiction, and regency romances with a few contemporary best sellers thrown in for good measure. Most of them were pretty steamy (blush) &/or overly romantic, but I read them during a time in my life when I found myself as a single parent, and these books fit the bill. I found them to be highly entertaining.

I recently donated a slew of them, but I wanted to catalog them all the same

I did really like this book, but I agree with the hero, Colin, I do not like the heroine's name, Sinjun. It was a childhood nickname and it is a silly name for a grown woman. Sorry, I had to vent...back to the review. Catherine Coulter is a seasoned author. You can tell when you read any of her books. I recommend them all. Her characters are well-developed. Her stories are interesting and complex enough to keep you wanting more without being tedious and boring you to death. The Heiress Bride was ...more

Well, I always liked Sinjun. I'm glad she got her HEA. I think I liked her husband even more because of how his friends called him Ash. (And this is such a dear name to me because of this story -- A Hit A Very Palpable Hit) Even if she never did. She called him Colin, and I'm pretty sure that that's how Alex called her mare in the first book :)
Well, anyway. I like her books cause they are so funny. I couldn't stop giggling like a little girl half of the time. I guess other stuff is pretty much

Cinjun and Colin. Very forward thinking on cinjun's going right up to Colin and saying I am an heiress marry me. Not sure she should have kept from Colin that his cousin wanted to prove he was a bastard so he could take over his place in society. Colin should be aware of what his cousins intentions were

After having read the first two in this series, I felt compelled to keep reading on. I loved the heroine at the beginning, and in the other books. It seemed as though halfway through the story, her personality changed, and she went from being a brave heiress, to a scared school girl. Thankfully this didn't last, and near the end of the book, she was herself again. Didn't care much for the plot, and there were not a lot of steamy scenes until near the end. In fact, in most of the love scenes in t ...more
I enjoyed this book. This gave a different take on that time. Sinjun was more out spoken, forward and protective then the seal books in that time period.

It started out with an interesting premise, where the heroine asks the hero to marry her. But then it ended up going off in a lot of other different directions.
I love the character Sinjun, but I found this book a little disappointing. I just really had a problem with Colin; I just didn't like him that much. A lot of historical fantasy heroes are similar, and maybe it's a good thing to be a little unique, but I'd rather have the formula guy back. Most of the side characters were nasty individuals and the oaf basically left Sinjun on her own in a strange country with these weirdos and blamed her when things weren't right when he deigned to come home. I m ...more

I really enjoyed Sinjun and Colin's story. So glad he finally gave in with the name, Sinjun definitely isn't a Joan.

Occasionally, I will read a romance title as a break from more serious reading and Catherine Couler is always a reliable choice. This book is part of the Sherbrooke family series and involves the marriage of the youngest daughter. The book is primarily set in Scotland and where the new bride faces the task of making her spouse a suitable husband and getting him to fall in love with her. The female character are well drawn but the male characters seem a bit cookie cutter. The book features a run ...more
This was pretty bad, to be honest. Lots of rape-y scenes. Lots of idiocy passed off as period authenticity and precociousness. I definitely wasn't a fan.

This was actually an audio-book that was loaned to me. Regular romance is not my normal fare, but I enjoyed this book, which is the first book of a series of apx 6 books. Ms. Coulter made the characters believable and relatable. This is a historical romance set in the 1800's

She includes romance, mystery and intrigue in the first 3 books of this series (I am currently listening to the 3rd book now). I would recommend the books to romance readers.
Sinjun Sherbrooke is at a London ball where she spots Colin Kinross, a Scottish Earl and falls in love at first sight. She overhears Colin saying that he must find a wealthy bride because the estates he has inherited are falling apart. Sinjun walks up to him and introduces herself telling him that she is an heiress and the answer to his prayers. Colin can't believe how forward this 19 year old his but he can't afford to turn her down,

Sinjun is hilarious. I love her. She's a great character in the Sherbrooke family. Her love for Colin is amazing. The things Sinjun suffers at his hands and his family is horrible. I'm glad she's able to stick it out. There were several times I wanted to smack Colin. Insensitive jerk! Still, it all ended well and her protective brothers showed up which made the story quite amusing. Recommended to historical romance lovers.

I have always enjoyed Catherine Coulter's mystery novels so this was a nice surprise.
Definitely an enjoyable read. Sinjun elopes with Colin and moves to Scotland, he hates her nickname and insists on calling her Joan. She is caught up in the intrigue in his castle and also finds that the wedding night is not what she expected. But they soon straighten out this problem and come to care for each other, as Sinjun helps Colin with problems in his ome. Enjoyable read.
Tupp- haha I kinda like that phrase.

It’s always nice when the woman does not like lovemaking the first time. – however Colin taking her a second time was just cruel. And then to rape her

My goodness the list of this man’s sins grows larger and larger, to not tell Joan that he had 2 children.

I am not sure how Syngin continues to love Colin
Sinjun gets what she wants, when she wants it. And she's set her sights on Colin, a poor Scottish earl who must marry an heiress to provide for those under his rule. And what do you know? Sinjun is an heiress. It seems the fates have decided, yet again, to give Sinjun what she wants. But has she bitten off more than she can chew? Read to find out...
silly plot and the interpersonal plot line did not interest me nearly as much as the other two previous in the series. About a woman who falls in love at first sight to a man who wants to marry for money who after about 2 weeks and annoying behavior from his new wife, falls in love of course.
Maureen Feeney
3.5 STARS Sinjuns story.

I enjoyed this a lot better than Ryders story THE HELLION BRIDE. As in all CC books there is abuse by the hero (usually on the wedding night) but even so I liked Colin a lot more than other CC hero's, and thought Sinjun my favourite Heroine of CC.
