5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Of the De Burgh's, 19 May 2007
This book is my absolute favourite of the de Burgh series and probably in my top 5 all time favourite books.

Geoffrey de Burgh draws the short straw and is forced by the King Edward's decree to marry Elene Fitzhugh whose father was the villian in Taming the Wolf. Elene is no prize to be taken lightly, she murdered her first husband on their wedding night and is known throughout the country as a vile, foulmouthed she-devil. Geoffrey is the most learned and patient of the brothers, and as he lives with her, he starts to see behind the rude behaviour to the person hiding within. Elene has not had an easy life and has sought to protect herself as best she could and armour herself with anything she can. Geoffrey's gentle behavour is at odds with everything she has ever experienced and she starts to watch his back reasoning to herself that she might as well keep this husband as the King will no doubt just wed her off again if anything happens to him.

The characters are well formed and they flow together effortlessly. It has the ususal bumps in the road of love but in this book you can feel how real they are and how hard each character works to overcome. It is also nice to catch up with The Wolf and Marion and watching their firey relationship is a revelation and quite scary educational experience for Elene.

If you buy this book, your copy will soon be like mine, sad, worn, falling to bits but loved!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best book in the Deburgh Series!, 8 Mar 2008
I'm a huge Deburgh fan, and have read all the books written in this series. This is by far the best one. I loved the fact that Elene was so strong and vulnerble at the same time and she was't afraid to stand up for herself. I love Geoffery and the fact that he was sensitive but not in a wimpy way. I read this book in a couple of hours and couldn't put it down from start to finish.

Highly Recommend!

5.0 out of 5 stars The De Burgh Bride, 31 May 2010
This review is from: The De Burgh Bride (Mills & Boon Historical) (Paperback)
This is the second in the De Burgh series and tells the story of Geoffrey de Burgh the 3rd brother as he is ordered by the king to marry Elene Fitzhugh. She is a sworn enemy of the De Burghs or so we are lead to believe. She killed her last husband in cold blood in the marriage bed and now it seems that's the fate that awaits poor Geoffrey. I love the fact that she is a strong character and at times it seems like Geoffrey will never break down the barriers she has put up, but he is kind and gentle, yet still strong and commanding. This is a real taming of the shrew type story. The sexual chemistry between the main characters is slow to start but when it does its mind boggling. I cant wist to read the next in the series (The Robber Bride) to see what happens to the next brother. A great read a must for De Burgh fans.

This review is from: The De Burgh Bride (Mills & Boon Historical) (Paperback)
This is the second of the De Burgh books in a series and although I loved the first 1 this was so much better and so funny i read it in 1 day it was so good. As seen at the end of the 1st book the brothers are forced by the king to marry Elene Fitzhugh who has all 6 warrior quaking in their boots as she has supposedly killed of 2 husbands. Geoffrey who is the smartest and most gentle of the bunch draws the short straw. The exchange between them is really funny as she tries every thing to try get rid of Geoffrey and get angry when it doesn't work. Finally realising that she is better of with Geoffrey than 1 of the other brothers or another man she puts aside her experience and distrust of men to try make a go of this marriage. Yet as witht he 1st book their is a villan who tries not only to scare away Geoffrey but to destroy any chance of happiness they may have. Really good read and it gives the reader the chance to catch up with the other brother and Marion to see how the relationship has developed. Would recommend to any 1 who enjoyed Taming the wolf and I will be buying all the rest of the series as I loved them so far.
