5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific story! 14 Mar 2003
By Detra Fitch TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Sir Nicholas Kirwan was happy the war with France was over and was returning home. On the roadside he met the beautiful lady, Miss Blanche Ferris, and her stand offish sister, Rietta. From his childhood friend, David Mochrie, he learned much about the sisters. Blanche could do no wrong while Rietta abused her father and sister. Yet for David to get his dream of marrying Blanche, someone had to agree to wed the shrew, Rietta first since she was the eldest. Nick refused, until he found out how much his mother and sisters needed money. Knowing Rietta to come with a large dowry, he agreed to meet her.
Contrary to all he had been told, he found Blanche to be a spoiled air head. However, Rietta was intelligent, pretty in her own way, and not the least bit a shrew. Agreeing to marry her was not a problem, but getting her to agree to wed him was!
***** Lots going on in this one! Getting past the marriage is the hard part, but much went on after it too! A well written story to make its readers sigh out loud. Terrific reading here!

5.0 out of 5 stars Introguing Irish Regency romance 26 Jan 2001
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Following Waterloo, Nick Kerwan returns to his home in Greenwood, Ireland to learn that his deceased father left the estate in financial ruin due to gambling and adultery. Nick has to pay off his father's debts while finding a way to care for his beloved mother and his two sisters.

His friend David Mochree asks Nick to woo Rietta Ferris, a termagant daughter of a wealthy merchant so he can marry the younger sister Blanche. Nick previously met the two siblings and found Blanche to be the most beautiful woman he ever met. He hardly noticed Rietta. However, he decides to pursue Rietta to determine if they can be compatible. Instead of compatibility, Nick falls in love with Rietta, who fell in love with him within an hour of their initial meeting. Now he must convince his beloved that he desires her since she believes he wants her sister or her money.

THE IRISH BRIDE is an intriguing Irish Regency romance that hooks the audience due to the depth to the ensemble. Readers will enjoy the relationships between the key cast members especially that of the lead characters. The role of women is clearly defined adding to a tasty character-driven tale that demands a sequel from Lynn Bailey.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Book so Wonderful... 23 Dec 2002
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
THE IRISH BRIDE is my thrid favorite book in the IRISH ROMANCE SERIES (of which I own all the books). It is topped only by THE IRISH DEVIL and THE BLACK SWAN. This book I read about two years ago and I saw it here and couldn't believe how much of an impression it left upon me. I recalled all of the characters and the plot to the point of Lynn Bailey's pencil.
Rietta is a intelligent and beautiful woman, howsever strained beneath the knowledge that no man loves her without getting to her sister fist. Nick plays a man in desparate need for money and Rietta's father i8s in a deparate need to marry of Rietta (not because of fatherly love.) Nick strikes a deal with the father for perposes I cannot explain here, for ruining the plot is terrible in a such a wonderful book. In force, they are married.
And soon, they begin to do the one thing Nick feared and longed for and the one thing Rietta hid from while screamed for.
They fell in love.
THE IRISH BRIDE shall always have a place in my heart. It is still sexy but centers around something that I thought a lot of romance books didn't: LOVE! You see, this book was not about the sex but the romance and love. That is a major part in THE IRISH BRIDE. So please, read this book and see just how magical Ireland can feel. And feel just how many twists and turns love can conquer.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a bad book, just not a great one either. 19 May 2003
By georgia-sunflower - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I read the Irish Devil, and this does not compare. I will try another Lynn Bailey book to make sure this just wasn't a fluke. Don't misunderstand, if you don't have anything else, read it. it is just too predictable without any extras to make it worthwhile. I thought Nicholas and Rietta deserved a better story or at least a more adventerous one.
