Drake
This marriage was supposed to be another business deal. My latest investment, a means to an end… I need an heir. Which means I want her belly swollen with my child before the year is out.

She was supposed to be my perfect little bride. Quiet. Uncomplicated. Unemotional.

I didn’t foresee the stunning firecracker who tumbled into my life and woke things in me I thought we

“You’re not theirs anymore. You’re mine.”
“Yours?”I hissed, my composure cracking. “You might have bought this body, Mr. Blackwell, but I will never be yours.”His eyes narrowed. “Your attitude will determine whether your life here is heaven or hell. I suggest you rethink it.”


Where do I start? Perhaps where I tell you, you need to read this book? Lol

By: Sienna Blake
4.5 Stars

One year. Four seasons. Thirteen cycles of the moon.

Noriko had a plan, one that would last one year. She could pull off one year to save her father. She just needed to remain childless and she could return to her family. The one who really loved her. Not this make believe family she had gotten herself into.

“Appear weak when you are strong and strong when you are weak.”

Noriko could do this. She has it all planned out. The one

So this is my first Sienna Blake book and I LOVED it. There are so much emotion and love brought into this story that I could not put it down. I had no idea what was going to happen on the next page that I just had to keep going. These two characters are in so much pain when they meet and all you want to do is see where it takes them. And man does it take you on a journey. This is a journey of discovery, growing up, and finally finding love. I voluntarily read an advance reader copy for my hones ...more

This author always surprises me....

This was not the story I thought I was getting, it was better. Her characters just make you feel. They always have depth. I loved the Japanese culture she brought to the book. I spent a year there as an exchange student & I adore & admire their culture so that was a sweet surprise.

The love story was a slow burn, imo. But the last part of the book was riveting. My heart was actually pounding for Drake & his father.

So basically she speaks fluent English, but can't even convert dollars to yen, when its basically the two most traded forms of currency in the world, and she's studying International Business. Are you kidding me? Also, Noriko's from a 'village'. I'm not sure about you, but wouldn't town be more appropriate in this case? This is the 21st century, and even places with <1000 people are called towns. So why the special term for Japan? It just makes me uncomfortable. Ffs, her university has books ...more

Filled to the brim with passion and emotion, Mr. Blackwell's Bride by Sienna Blake was a thoroughly enjoyable story. A brooding workaholic with a dark past. A feisty and intelligent girl willing to sacrifice herself for her family. Drake and Noriko were two people who got more than they bargained for as a marriage arrangement turned into an unexpected and passionate love story.

This retelling of The Girl/Wife Prisoner is just as gripping and really tugs at the heartstrings.

Drake is a billionnaire who buries himself in his work. His parents' marriage wasn't a good example and he is resigned to a loveless life. He wants an heir and goes for an arranged marriage with this sole purpose. No attachments. Attachments bring pain!

Niriko has a simple life in Japan. She is an art lover, but being the oldest in her family with two young sisters, studying art isn't an option. Her

Sienna Blake has written a beautiful re-writing of Beauty and the Beast. She pushes the story up to the next level and gives us an emotionally broken Beast and a Beauty torn between the love to Beast and the longing for her family. The pages are literally dripping with tension, hunger, despair, lust, and love.

In Japan, Noriko is trying to take care of her father and sisters after her beloved mother has died. She is studying international business even though her heart is with the great

WOW! I started off hating Drake, I felt bad for Noriko, then I disliked both of them, then I LOVED HIM! I don't remember reading a book before where I off the bat I thought the main male character was such a dick and then fell in love with him. I went through so many different emotions regarding these two characters.
Drake was not the typical perfect rich hero, he’s rude, arrogant, demanding, but inside he is hurt, broken and cursed by his past. He’s unsure of how to love his wife; he tries to b

Oh my, where to start! Both Drake and Noriko grabbed my heart right from the get-go. Noriko is so spunky, and yet so sweet, she'd just wonderful! And Drake, oh Drake, he might just be my favorite of Sienna's men yet. He's not an easy man to love, but that just makes it even sweeter, does it not?

I won't lie, this one did take me a couple chapters to get into it, but then it grabbed me by my soul and took me along for the entire ride. The ups and downs, the arguments and the tender moments. Even w

Mr. Blackwell's Bride is a total WIN for me!  

What made this book for me were the tears.  It's been a while since I have found a book that pulled in all the right places and made me cry.  Those are truly my favorite books and I was able to enjoy this book from beginning to end.

Drake was truly one of the biggest jerks around...he just really didn't know what to do with Noriko and the new expectations that being a husband really presented.  I think that is what made the emotions for me.  He was so

I received a free ecopy of this book to review. As I have read several of Sienna's (AND Hannah's) books, so this was a win win for me. I thought at first it would take me a couple of days to finish, but in truth I could not put this book down. I had to make myself go to sleep last night! Drake is so deeply self loathing and cocky at the same time. To see the depth of the scared child that morphed into this closed off man is amazing. Noriko is the right balance of steele and cherry blossom. She h ...more

Another hit for me!

Mr. Blackwell's Bride follows a similar pattern as Beautiful Revenge, but in a different perspective. It was a really enjoyable read, and the story had me hooked from the very beginning.

I loved everything about this book. It was full of emotion, and passion, and I loved the complexities of the characters and how much they built each other, as well how much they ruined one another.

My heart felt for Drake, and for how felt about himself. He was flawed, and I couldn't love him

Wow - This is one of those reads that despite how much you dislike the leading male you can not help but pity him
His world is controlled, organized and utterly empty - he has everything until the day his chest begins to ache - just a touch - but that little ache is enough to bring his empire to ruins
She is in a position of duty - after losing her mother she steps up to care for her sisters and her father - when he falls ill she decides there is no price too high to ensure he is cared for

Heartfelt, passionate and compelling story of second chances and learning how to love.
Romantic, seductive and full of angst.
A poignant story with flawed complicated characters had me totally absorbed by their beautiful passionate story.
This time we meet Drake and Noriko.
Despite his riches and his lavish life style nothing could have prevented a scare forcing him to make life altering decisions.
Slow down, he was told...spend time with the ones you love!
So...like a wise busy man on a mission...

Honor when misplaced can do major damage. These two twisted by pain and the past just tore each other apart for all the wrong reasons. Him in his pain from his families past, the sins of the father and mother in his case. Her with her father and her family. Their differences are their shields, their walls, their downfall.

This author takes us deep into the twisted thinking and feelings of a broken torn up soul who finds the one woman who may help him see what real love is all about. I love this

Sienna Blake never fails to deliver a story that will keep you entertained. Mr. Blackwell's Bride is phenomenal! It's part of a series but can be read as a standalone.

There are so many twists throughout this story that I've come to expect from Ms Blake. I was hooked from the very beginning and didn't want to put this book down. I can't wait to see what this author has in store for us next!

Mr. Blackwell’s Bride by Sienna Blake is yet another emotionally driven read. A workaholic with a dark dreary past, and a young woman who would do anything for her family. Whst was an arranged marriage, turned into so much more.

Drake is not your typical alpha male. He’s dark, broody, and rude, but on the inside..... he’s just a little lost. And lonely. He would never admit that though.......

I loved this book it reminded me so much of Beauty and The Beast. Yet it was different and so much better.

I loved both characters even though Drake came off strong and closed off basically he was a jerk! But I enjoyed seeing how Noriko changed everything for him, even towards the end he was still a stubborn asshole, you could see the love he had for her.

I loved finding out why Drake was such a closed off person. He needed someone like Noriko to come in and break those walls. Noriko was such a

Once again, Sienna Blake delivers an enthralling, demanding love story with Mr. Blackwell’s Bride. I found myself utterly wrapped-up in Drake and Noriko’s story from the second I opened the book until I read the final word. I never knew how much I loved arranged marriage books, but after reading this one and a handful of others over the last several months, I’m finding them to be a favorite literary theme.

I wish I could say that I enjoyed this book as much as I did the first standalone in this series, but in all honesty I didn't. I can't lie, the beginning of the book had me wanting more but as the story went on, I went from being excited to being aggravated with these characters. Yes, Drake had a rough childhood to say the least but at times the way he acted and treated Noriko was TOO MUCH. I disliked all of the anger he displayed and the control he needed. Noriko had her faults too, especially ...more
