A nice story full of twists and turns.. Elinor has always been known as a quiet good girl, little did we know that there was more behind the woman, it is only following her broken engagement that she starts to let everyone see who she really is.. a lovely story of love, new beginnings and finding oneself...

All her life, Elinor Burkenstock has been groomed to be Sir Michael Rollins’ wife. She loves him deeply and when he takes one last mission right before their wedding, the unthinkable happens. Torn between grief and fury, Elinor confronts Michael and demands to know why he’s broken off their engagement. When he tells her the truth, she doesn’t faint or shied away from him. She gets angry with him and ironically, he discovers Elinor is the woman of his wicked dreams: passionate, intelligent and fiery.

Michael can’t stop thinking about Elinor and the things she said in anger. The more he thinks about it, the more he realizes that he loves her even more than he did before the ghastly mission. With the help of his friends, he concocts a plan to win her back. Just as he has done so (or so he thinks), she is kidnapped by a crazed man claiming to be Duke of the lands bestowed to Michael by the King. Will Michael move heaven and earth to save her or will he be too late?

I loved this book so much that I read it in one sitting. I couldn’t put it down and not even my husband could veer me away from Elinor and Michael. I first met both Elinor and Michael in Tainted Bride so I had high expectations for this book. It surpassed my expectations by a hundred-fold.

Fenichel took me on a breathtaking romance adventure and I wasn’t disappointed. There’s depth to these characters that I find refreshing. There’s serious issues that both Elinor and Michael must overcome if they are going to make it as a couple. But there’s plenty of humorous moments, too.

While this is book two in the Forever Brides series, this is a standalone and can be read apart from Tainted Bride. Although, I highly recommend reading that one, too.

Elinor Burkenstock is in love with her fiancé Michael Rollins but he undertakes one more mission. Then the unthinkable happens, and Elinor’s engagement is suddenly terminated and no one, least of all her fiancé, will tell her why.

Sir Michael Rollins’s war-hero days seem far behind him when, on his last mission before his wedding to the love of his life Elinor, he gets shot and his injuries leave him a broken man & he’s told he’s unlikely to have children. He wants nothing more than to marry Elinor, but her father forbids it.
A well-paced story with likeable characters especially the lovely Preston Knowles, Duke of Middleton who I hope has his HEA, Thomas & Markus also deserve their HEAs.
Elinor loves to write lists whether on paper or in her head, she is quite weepy dissolving often into tears but does change from the empty headed foolish debutante to a strong woman. Michael was spineless when he agreed to her father’s demand to end their engagement but he was seriously injured at the time. He does fight for Elinor. Michael is elevated to the peerage for his service to the crown & he has to deal with a usurper. They have to deal with kidnapping, shooting & misunderstandings. A well-written novel & I look forward to the rest of the series. This book could well be a stand-alone novel but for those of us who love series it does follow on from The Tainted Bride
I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Regency Romance! 28 Mar. 2017
By Janice Hougland - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I really “got into” this story and felt it deeply. My only problem is the title because I do not think Elinor was a foolish bride at all. On the contrary, I think she was very, very smart (albeit perhaps unwittingly). I liked her strength in fighting the foolish system of parental involvement in pairing brides with bridegrooms and the foolish, tonnish gossip which guided the rules for women and men during the Regency era. At first I had less admiration for the hero, Michael, for his following all of the tonnish strictures about what is important and what is not relating to following his heart and his own instincts about Eloisa. I applauded when he “saw the light” and admired Elinor’s strength and fell in love with her all over again but for better reasons than before. I won’t give anything away with this review so I will just say that I really enjoyed this Regency romance and now want to read the rest of this series and this author’s back list.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great romantic story of Elinor and Sir Michael 22 April 2017
By Valerie R. Macaluso - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Elinor Burkenstock seems to an empty head marriage minded young girl, but she falls in a scandal for kissing the war hero, Sir Michael Rollins. Michael then disappears after the scandal hits the paper. Elinor ever is loyal and rejects the new candidates for her marriage. She gets engaged with Michael and then Michael comes home after the last war assignment. Michael is wounded and his ability to have an heir is questioned by his doctor. Elinor' s father withdraws the marriage. Then we see Elinor slowly grows her backbone and her maturity.
I really enjoyed this evolution of this relationship and both Michael and Elinor growth to be their own maturity.

5.0 out of 5 stars You'll fall in love with the characters! 28 Mar. 2017
By N. N. Light - Published on Amazon.com

While this is book two in the Forever Brides series, this is a standalone and can be read apart from Tainted Bride. Although, I highly recommend reading that one, too.

If you’re looking for a historical romance with substance, pick this up today. You’ll fall in love with the ton and their delightful, even mischievous, characters. I can’t wait for the next book in the series.

Thank you to Lyrical Press (Kensington Books) for giving me an ARC via Netgalley in the hopes I’d review it.

Favorite Character: Elinor. I loved how her strength, love and courage shone through. She was brought up to be a fanciful lady but underneath all that silk and satin lies an intelligent, outgoing woman who loves her beloved Michael. She’s a treat to read and root for.

My Rating: 5+ stars

4.0 out of 5 stars ARC REVIEW Elinor and MIchael together at last??? 20 April 2017
By HannahPilar - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The second of A.S. Fenchel's Forever Bride series Foolish Bride takes up where the first one left with the continuation of Elinor and Michael lover story. In the first book we met Elinor and Michael a star-crossed romance who had some issues as a side story. In the first book we see Elinor as a sweet young woman with a gentle disposition but as the book goes on and she realizes that she is going to stop trying to please everyone she shows her family and friends she is quick witted and has quite a temper. Michael was a bit of a let down he was to broody and a little bit pitiful, thank goodness Elinor is there.

Michael inherited a failing estate and he wanted to prove to everyone that he wasn't marrying Elinor for her dowry and prove to Elinor and her Parents he was worthy of her. Michael was a soldier who started to work for the home office but during his last mission he was gravely injured and the rumors that he was less than a man because of them gave Elinor's father cause to break the engagment. Elinor fought tooth and nail against her father because of this so she snuck out to talk to Michael herself but Michael angry at himself for getting injured and his body failing him but also because Elinor's father said she agreed to cancel the wedding and even when she shows up to confront him to ask if this is what he really wants he turns her away.

Elinor gets angry at everyone even her closest friends and even when that anger has passed she is still angry with Michael and her parents. Elinor decides to attend her best friend's house party and while there she again a man her mother foisted on her Middleton. Even though she is still mad at Michael she still loves him but still unsure of their future together she strikes up a friendship with Middleton, who soon becomes smitten with her. Michael now faced with the prospect of losing Elinor forever has to convince Elinor he does and always will love her.

Overall, this was a really sweet book. I'm not one for love triangles but this barely registers as one. A.S Fenichel does well with the character development and the active setting. The romance was nice but out of all of it I loved Elinor and seeing the change she went through and how Michael just ended up loving her even more for it.

4.0 out of 5 stars I liked Foolish Bride 29 Mar. 2017
By Melody May - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I decided to take a chance on the Foolish Bride. The first book in the series was so-so, but showed promise to the series. We met Elinor in Tainted Bride. She's portrayed as a ditz in the first book, so thinking it might be interesting. Anyway, she's been burned by Sir Michael Rollins, and she had to withstand some scandal. However, the final straw was when he called off the wedding, because he wasn't whole. Basically lashed out her, instead explaining that he might be able to father children in a rational way. I totally get it, he was angry at the world, and her father didn't help the situation at all.

Anyway, she decides she's done playing the flighty airhead, and decides she wants a backbone. I struggle with this transition, because she started to lash out at everyone too. Tis a good thing she has good friends who stood by her side even when she was being a B. Once Michael came to his senses, all he ever wanted was Elinor's happiness. He might not have handle the situation with tact, but he did love her enough to let her go. However, things start to look up and he feels that he good be the man she needs. Yet, there are few challenges and obstacles ahead. You the know the road to true love isn't always the easiest.

All right, I almost gave up Foolish Bride. I seriously didn't like Elinor's attitude. She was kind of cruel and mean. I did press forward with the story, because I did like Michael. Both of the characters did grow as the story continues and they learn to love the people they have molded. Actually, it wasn't until about halfway through the story I had a change of heart on my feelings. I did start to enjoy the story. The beginning was a little rough for me, but it was a pretty good ending. Plus, the story got good during and after the house party. Overall, I liked Foolish Bride. I'm glad I stuck with the story.
