Book Description

1 Jan 1999
Dear Reader,

In celebration of true love, here's a Valentine's Day treat--the tale of two star-crossed lovers who can't see that they're perfect for each other....

Lady Emma Beaumont and Lord Alasdair Chase were once inseparable childhood friends, then betrothed lovers.  But something went dreadfully awry, and Emma left Alasdair practically at the altar.

Now, two years later, Emma has inherited a substantial fortune...but there's one small string attached: until the day she weds, Emma cannot spend a farthing without Alasdair's consent.

The thought of having to go to Alasdair, with his mocking smile and derisive eyes, every time she needs money is not to be borne.  Emma swears to Alasdair that she'll have both a husband--and a lover--by St. Valentine's Day.

Alasdair vows she won't--unless he himself becomes both her lover and her husband.  In fact, he's looking forward to employing every form of sensual persuasion he dares to convince his passionate, headstrong Emma that she'd rather have him than any other man.

Will he succeed?...or will Emma get her way?

Warmest wishes,

Jane Feather

P.S.  In summer '99, look for The Accidental Bride, the next volume in my Brides trilogy, which began with The Hostage Bride.  Three unconventional young women vow never to marry, only to be overtaken by destiny.... In The Accidental Bride, Phoebe, the "awkward" one, stumbles into romance, adventure, and passion....

5.0 out of 5 stars Another V(ictory) for historical romance fans 13 Dec 1998
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
They had been childhood friends, who became lovers. By 1808, they became engaged, but Lady Emma Beaumont jilted Lord Alisdair Chase. Two years later, Emma's brother Ned, the Earl of Grantley, dies from a sniper's bullet in Portugal while trying to deliver important papers to Wellington. She inherits the estate, but to her chagrin she learns that her sibling has named Lord Alisdair Chase as the trustee.
Emma and Alisdair remain attracted to one another, but both are still reeling from the end of their previous relationship. Emma decides that marriage, which will allow her spouse to take charge of her inheritance, is a better avenue than dealing with the spiteful Alisdair for every pence she needs. Emma pledges to be married by St. Valentine's Day. Alisdair intends to be the groom. However, as they engage in their bedroom battle, the Peninsula War comes to England as the duo inadvertently becomes involved in her sibling's last action.
Highly regarded historical romance author Jane Feather is clearly a superheavyweight when it comes to providing readers with an entertaining and rousing romance. A VALENTINE WEDDING is an invigorating Regency romance filled with two warm and witty lead protagonists and plenty of action. Anyone who reads this novel will clearly feel that "V" stand for another Feather victory.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very Predictable with a slow start 3 Feb 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
At first this promises to be an enjoyable read, but unfortunately the story quickly bogs down. This tale is full of all the requisite misunderstandings and predictable villainous third parties. Quite a disappointment. Jane Feather is capable of much more entertaining work!

2.0 out of 5 stars Not a favorite 5 Nov 2005
By Readinglilac - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This could have been much better. The premise was interesting, with having the former fiance being the trustee. What ruined the story for me was what Alasdair lied about that caused Emma to leave him at the altar. The novel makes it out that she was irrational for doing so, when what he lied about was inexcusable.

I don't require that the hero and heroine of a romance novel be perfect. In fact I prefer them to have some flaws. However they must be likable. Alasdair was not honorable or redeemable, and the ruined what could have been an interesting story.

1.0 out of 5 stars INFIDELITY NOT DISCUSSED NOTHING 22 Dec 2012
By Lillian Rose - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
SPOILERS

The H/h had known each other since the h was 8 he was a good friend of the family actually he spent so much time with the family it was like he was a member of their family. He spent most of his growing years with them, yet he had no respect for the h.The H had a mistress when he was young, whom he spent all his money on and he didn't have much money, he nearly went to debtors prison for her, she and the H had a son together. Yet we are supposed to believe that the H loved the h as well. The H was sleeping with his mistress when he took the h to bed, they were engaged and he was still having sex with his mistress. He believed that they were separate, what a crock. What else I thought was a crock was that the H's best friend was the h's brother whom invited the H into his home all that time ago, now when someone told the h that the H had a mistess and a child to that mistress and that he was still her protector/having sex with her, understandably the h dumped him. What I don't understand and what is totally unbelievable is that her brother whom was really close with the h never took this as an insult to her, she took of to Italy and in the book it is said that he/brother never took sides, this is the biggest WTF moment ever, his last thoughts before he dies is of his sister, yet the H totally devastated her and he never called the H out over it or even ended their friendship over this - huge plot device, and unbelievable. The brother left the H as administrator of her fortune.

She remains in the country for three years, the H ruined her for in those times her loss of virginity is a huge thing, yet what does he do he teases her about not having a lover to the extent that he tells him that she is going to have a lover and a husband. He has felt no remorse for what he has done to her, nothing, he is angry at her for jilting him the day before their wedding when she found out about him having a mistress and a child. As I kept reading and waiting for the H to own up and take responsibility for what he had done to the h, nothing the whole way through the book I was waiting. She just jumps straight into having sex with him and it's like old times again, she was so angry with the H. The H even takes her to an old trysting place where he takes his mistresses or ow for sex and she doesn't walk out on him no, she knows what it is, they know him by name. This h has no self respect. This H has no respect for the h. The whole time this is happening I am still waiting for the H to wake up. The whole time the H is angry with the h for jilting him, for not trusting him. Oh yes the whole time the h has been chastely doing nothing in the country the H has been spreading himself around. His mistress married someone else and the H financed their farm and was visiting them. So the mistress gets a new life with a husband and another child with the new husband, whilst the H beds everything in skirts but the h just waits chastely for the H, vomitus anyone, pass around the barf bag. The only thing the H does is take the h with him when he visits the exmistress and his son, no I'm sorry, nothing. He is scum, pond scum, not redeemable, not likeable.

I found this book a very poor effort on behalf of Jane Feather. In the fact that the h was so distraught she jilted the H, her brother didn't defend her honor, the brother named the H as administrator of her money. The h just jumps back into having sex with H, the H constantly disrespects the h, constantly. I can't believe that after all the years the h's family took the H in he disrespected them all by treating the h like that. He constantly blamed the h for his wrong doing and he never once admitted that he was wrong. He slept with the H and the mistress at the same time and never thought this was wrong. He seemed to think that all he had to do is introduce his son and his exmistress to make up for everything, WRONG. He didn't think he was doing the wrong thing by sleeping with them at the same time. I kept waiting and Jane Feather just didn't come up with my HEA. Infideltiy is a hard book to write to get a believable HEA, but when it's not discussed and ownership claimed how can a reader get a believable HEA.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good read! 3.5 stars 2 Jun 2010
By LuvGirl - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I really like this book! It was very interesting. The storyline was compelling and the hero and heroine had great sexual tension. The way they argued was so realistic and i'm sure the fact that they had a real life conflict helped. I loved the fact that Emma had a different personality from the typical heroine in a romance. She was not a virgin, (thanks to the hero) a little spoiled, and tempermental with jealous tendencies when it came to Alasdair. That was very refreshing to read. I get so bored of reading about the perfect heroine that's always so politically correct in every romance. Alasdair was also a wonderful character. His past history with Emma was superbly intriguing. It kept me turning the pages, and the author kept you in suspense and revealed each mystery at the perfect timing before you could get frustrated. This book was not perfect though. It has a few problems. The short love scenes left something to be desired and the description of the hero was not well portrayed. You get the impression that he is a handsome man, but it's not really stated. That drove me crazy! I need to know for sure that my hero is handsome, lol. The ending also dragged out a bit, but everything else was great, so I am happy to recommend this book!

**********SPOILER************
If you dislike reading about a hero that cheated, then you should skip this book, but he cheated on her in the past, not while the story was taking place.

VALENTINE WEDDING starts slowly, but progresses nicely. Major characters are sympathetic and well-drawn. Plot is predictable but enjoyable.
