Book Description

"When you open a book by Claire Delacroix, you open a treasure chest of words, rare and exquisite!"

"I seek a bride, the wealthiest heiress in Ireland."

No woman can resist the charms of Rowan de Montvieux. But the dashing rogue is in no hurry to marry--until his family dares him to find a bride . . . or risk losing his inheritance. So Rowan sets out on a Bride Quest, vowing to wed only . . .The Heiress.

But his journey is interrupted when a slave merchant offers to sell him a ragged peasant girl who carries herself like a queen. Intrigued and never imagining she is the sought-after Bronwyn of Ballyroyal, an heiress in disguise, Rowan buys her, offering her his protection if she will lead him to the bride he seeks.

Never has he met a woman so proud, so beautiful, so defiant. He suspects she is no commoner and vows to uncover her secrets and melt her fiery resolve. But the perilous voyage to Ireland kindles passions that risk both their lives, as the slave girl who would not be mastered slowly takes possession of his wary heart. . . .

Don't miss the first two novels in the breathtaking Bride Quest trilogy: The Princess and The Damsel, both available from Dell.

From the Paperback edition.

1.0 out of 5 stars the Heiress 24 Jun. 2001
By A Customer - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
do people really finish this book? The plot is good but get on with it, the author spend about 2 or 3 chapters just on each lovemaking scene, shssss!!!. Laid off the sex already, we get the point. Read this book if stuck in the middle of nowhere and have nothing else to do because it is very slow pace that drag on and on and on... well you get the idea. A waste of money, i wouldn't recomend.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great character development 6 Oct. 1999
By ENJYLYF@AOL.COM - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I had a hard time getting into this book, as it seemed that the first half (almost) of the story was nothing but Rowan betting Ibernia that he could get her into bed with him. But after that, the story really began to develop and I found myself falling in love with the characters as they fell in love with each other. The plot turns from Rowan trying to save Ibernia, to Ibernia (or Bronwyn) ultimately saving Rowan. Both strong characters, with a sweet love story, and some funny scenes as well. I enjoyed it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Unlikeable main characters. 18 Oct. 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I was very disappointed with this book. I read to page 220 and decided I was wasting my time. I did not like either the Heiress or her suitor. The were shallow selfish people. When I decided the character that interested me the most was Baldassre, the slave trading, revenge seeking Venetian, I put the book down and have no intention of finishing it. I have read other books by Delacroix that I really enjoyed. I do not recommend this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Redeemer 11 Oct. 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This was a much better story than "Damsel". I felt the author redeemed herself in this book. Although I was a bit hesitant to read this book I had to know what "funny" Rowan would do to capture his Heiress. Strong characters. Nice ending.
5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic!!!! 8 Aug. 2012

I love this whole series, it's one of those books you just can't seem to put it down till it's done and then you want more. You easily find yourself slippin into the maidens slippers and find yourself feeling everything she does. I just loved the whole series.
