I have been on a re-read kick and this is another re-read of Catherine Coulter for me. She has a distinct style: very crude sex scenes, big men who could compete in the world's biggest asshole contest, small women who fight like wild cats if their husbands are threatened, male villains with outrageous hints at their "overly feminine" qualities, rape or at least forced intercourse or rough sex as punishment for females. I have read many of her books in my youth and did not grow up to think it's o ...more

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

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

"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?)

Listening to the book in Audio format

Ugh. Heroine's character had many pleasing, fun, fresh parts to her (hence not just 1 star) and others that made me cringe. I never EVER liked the hero. I would have shot him, after punching him senseless. The rape scene, mentioned many times, was bad. Bad writing, bad scene, bad vibe. I didn't much like the first book. Liked Sinjin so very much more, but hated Colin more than Douglas, who was a jerk all by himself.
Never again for this author in this genre.

I actually loved Backfire (FBI Thrille

beware of a quite brutal rape scene here. I love Sinjun's character and although the rape was quite brutal in my opinion it didn't,bother me as much,as the former book. Mostly I liked the way the heroine handled it and although she was really,hurt it didn't defeat her at all. Now that I think about it I don't really remember an actual secual rape in book 2. I think it was the Sophie's character rape that bothered me most of all in that book. Which,i should try to explain in that review, not here ...more

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

Dear Reader:
Welcome to the exciting conclusion of the English Regency Bride Trilogy, The Heiress Bride.
You met Sinjun Sherbrooke in the The Sherbrooke Bride and in The Hellion Bride, a delightful, quite endearing fifteen-year-old who, I hope, charmed your socks off.
Now she’s nineteen, blessed with Sherbrooke blue eyes, wit to burn, and a wonderful sense of humor. She is also bored with the London Season until she spies Colin Kinross, the Scottish earl of

Slightly better than the first one (and light years ahead of the second) but still too many misogynistic overtones. The author isn't a bad writer and draws interesting characters but the eye roll factor is too high. Plus - I know she writes FBI novels (not sure if they're romances) but this is regency England. Do we have to have a mystery in order to create the basic conflict? Not recommended but if you insist, only read this one.

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
Stacey Howell
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

Enjoy the romantic mystery. Different from FBI series. I like the development of old characters in each book of the series. Looking forward to rest of the series.

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.
Vanessa
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.

lmao so i straddled this line of loving it and beig sooo irritated

like the other books, the lead male was sooo idiotically stupid and maleish, it was hard to like him at first. Though I did like Colin, and I felt for him with his family (SHEESH)

Sinjun lost a bit of herself for a part of the book, which was sad, I liked her fire, and was glad when it came back.

Loved Douglas and Ryder and wasn't suprised by their responses, each and everytime.

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 walks up to him and introduces herself telling him that she is an heiress and the answer to his prayers.
