This book didn't appeal to me, personally, for a variety of reasons - some of which are superficial.

The main problem I had was the fact that the H didn't even feel any latent attraction to the heroine until after her makeover.

I've read quite a few romance novels where the heroine is disguised as a boy. In most of the ones I enjoyed, the H always had this uncanny and unwanted attraction to the disguised heroine.

I was hoping to see the H develop unwanted feelings for Camilla while she was dresse

My review is gone

I wrote a review and it is gone. I really did like this book. The heroine was great and I liked how she dressed up as a boy to stay with her horses. The Hero was off but he grew on me. I was glad he didn't have a real relationship with his fiancee. I actually read the 2nd book and she was perfect for Diego. I really loved that book too. This is safe and worth reading. There was a point when the hero was a jerk and I deducted a star for that. Very good book.
I am with the rest of the GR crew. This was an okay read, but phoned in HP.

The H is not very villainous or predatory, and the heroine was more interesting when she was pretending to be a 14 year old boy just so she could be with her horses. I guess pushing the deception is a little difficult when you have a strict Harlequin HP word limit. One of my favorite girl-in-disguise books is Laura Black's Wild Cat, an oldie but a goodie where PC doesn't remotely enter the picture. The H in that book is h

This was an okay read for me.For some reason, this couple did not quite work for me.I did not see the progression to love,not even minute she is dressed in disguise as this raggedy 14 year old orphan boy,the next she is this golden goddess whose beauty is quite the room stopper.From innocent virgin to seductress.
Now the "villian" brother,yes I can def get on board with him.I hope his story is better.He is paired with the ex fiancee of the hero from this book.
Good epilogue.
Rating this a 3.5

Camilla, our heroine has lost her Father and now her beloved horses/ranch. But she devises a plan to stay near them, she poses as a boy as the new owner, Matias does not hire woman to work with his horses.

Matias, our hero needs to marry to win his Grandfather money/inheritance. He has a fiancee that he picked but unfortunately she's kidnapped by his "evil" brother (cannot wait for these two and their romance/love story). Well Matias discovers Camilla is a woman and devises a pl
A great marriage of convenience story. Sexy possessive hero and fierce loving heroine. I loved them together. Good love scenes and hot chemistry. Epilogue with their 2 kids was sweet! Can't wait for the evil brother's story.

My review from
The Spaniard’s Untouched Bride is a modern book by Maisey Yates. I like reading Mills & Boon books as most are only 192 pages, with being a small book, easy to pack in your suitcase wherever you are traveling too. In The Spaniard’s Untouched Bride, Camillia Alverez, father died, the ranch that Camillia had grown up in had to be sold to cover her fathers debts, with everything going to Matias Navarro. Camillia will be evicted from the ranch with no

I wonder about Diego’s story. He was the villain in this book so I hope he’ll be cruel enough to feed my masochist side. Lol
I received a copy of this book in return for an honest review via Netgalley.

Story-wise, there was nothing new here, but it was a fun mix of a sometimes cross dressing heroine, arrogant hero and an emotional HEA!

Camilla has lost everything but her love for her horses. What to do but to follow them and work for their new stables as a boy...of course. Matias runs successful racing stables, and can see Camilla’s obvious talent for working with the horses. However, her disguise and his plan to inheri

Absolutely fantastic book Ms Yates as always most definitely does not disappoint. I will not give, spoilers but will say not all is what it seems, but most definitely makes an epic read.

Thank you for writing this awesome book xxxxx

The Spaniard’s Untouched Bride by Maisey Yates is a sexy romance about a woman who loses everything, then gains it all back and finds love in the bargain. It’s the first story in the Brides of Innocence series.

When Camilla Alvarez loses her father, she also loses her home and the horses that have been her life. Desperate, she disguises herself as a teenaged boy (accomplished easily with some snips of hair and her tomboyish figure) and gets hired by the tycoon Matias Navarro who now controls her
A MOC with a difference.
I loved the heroine, Camila. She is strong, unconventionally beautiful, smart, determined, and really straightforwardly honest. There no mincing words with her. She came straight out and told the hero, Matias, that she loved him. Even knowing that was the death knell in their relationship.

But before all of that, she chopped off her hair, dressed like a boy and got a job in the H’s ranch after he bought her ranch and horses. Her father had just died and left her with not

An awesome book!. The title was off, it should have been 'The Spanish Spirited Bride. " Camellia is everything a man wanted! She was Wild, feisty independent, strong-willed and beautiful. She was selfless and brave. She healed out tormented Hero, Matias, and have him the will to mend ties and fix his life. I look forward to his brother's story, Deigo stole Matias's first fiancee and it let's see how the devils one among the two grew out of his darkness and found his light. Wonderf ...more

An enjoyable marriage of convenience story with likeable characters and lots of romance.

Camilla Alvarez is devastated when her father dies and her family ranch and beloved horses are sold to Matias Navarro. Feeling she has no other options, Camilla disguises herself as ‘Cam’ the teenage stable boy, and gets herself a job at the Navarro ranch.
On the other side of the story, Matias needs a wife to inherit his share of his Grandfather’s fortune, however, his convenient intended, Lilliana, leaves/is

What if you lost everything you loved, you'd fight to get it back, wouldn't you?

That's exactly what Cam does, even if it means pretending to be a boy to get to be with her beloved horses. An unfortunate event brings her into close proximity with the owner Matias and then she's really in trouble. Matias is used to being pursued but he is completely floored when he finds out Cam's secret. He offers a marriage of convenience but their bodies and emotions have other ideas.

This is an emotional roman

Camilla Alvarez has lost her father to death and because of his debts her beloved Rancho. She is homeless but more important she has lost her horses, her reason for living. She knows Matias Navarro has obtained the Rancho and horses so she must go to him but he does not hire women. Simple make believe she is a stable boy. Sounds like a great idea and it works for quite a while. He is engaged and part of the reason for the marriage is his grandfathers deal that he must beat his wayward troublesom ...more

DNF at 75%. I'd previously read this book a little beyond that spot but then gave up and today decided to come back to it, so I started back earlier in the book, right when Camila's identity is discovered.

And then a few chapters down I recalled why I'd just given up and decided to not put myself thru this torture any longer. The plot and characters are likeable but the writing is very outdated, granma style melancholic retelling of "my father this, my mother that".

I feel this was one of the very best books by Maisey Yates I have read in the last months. It was such a deep romance. I loved Camilla and Matias. They are perfect together!
I was reading some reviews and I saw that The Spaniard's Stolen Bride is even better. My expectations for it are huge! ❤❤

When I give a 1 star rating to a book it usually means that I really and truly hate it.
But hate is too strong word for his one.
It's overly cheesy with one dimensional characters.
