Read from August 15 to September 07, 2010

While all the earlier books in The Bride series are steller for the most part, Lyon's Gate left me cold and empty. Jason Sherbrooke is a good character with a good set of personal morals, but towards the end he just turns into every other Regency lordling by being forced into marriage due to compromising rumors. Since both Jason and Hallie are stubborn, I thought they would actually stay true to themselves and not marry. If this were any other twosome, I would expect a marriage by the end of this book, but because of the tragic events in Jason's life and less-than-desirable events of Hallie's love life, I thought for once the outcome would be different. My mistake. This book had lots of potential but fell short; it failed its characters and failed me.
