Product Description

About the Author

Kate Walker was always making up stories. She can't remember a time when she wasn't scribbling away at something and wrote her first “book” when she was eleven. She went to Aberystwyth University, met her future husband and after three years of being a full-time housewife and mother she turned to her old love of writing. Mills & Boon accepted a novel after two attempts, and Kate has been writing ever since. Visit Kate at her website at: www.kate-walker.com

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Modest accountant’s daughter Felicity has steeled herself to marry local aristocrat Edward Venables, in order to save her family, but all plans are thrown into chaos when she gets kidnapped on her way to the church. By an Argentinian billionaire, because reasons.

Yes, it’s difficult to get proper ordinary English girls into the narrative clutches of dominating and ruthless yet at the same time honest and fundamentally good smouldering ultra-rich Argentinians, but you really have to do better than this. The story starts out making no sense, and continues to make no sense all the way to the end. It’s impossible to take the romance seriously, because it's impossible to take any of it seriously. Every step of the story runs into the sheer stupidity of the situation the characters have been put in.

Don’t buy this. Get “The Devil and Miss Jones” by the same author, which starts with an ordinary English girl being picked up by a dominating and ruthless smouldering ultra-rich Argentinian on the day she’s supposed to marry someone else, but which makes sense and is awesome.

Very hot Argentinian Rico but little explanation for the reason behind the passion, kidnap and seemingly lust at first sight and then marriage proposal. So little emotions yet a Very passionate story.

Again Kate Walker pens a winner with her newest book, The Hostage Bride, and ensures her place in her readers' auto-buy lists.
Dutiful daughter Felicity Hamilton will do anything for her parents -- including marrying a man she does not love in order to pay off her father's embezzling and keep him out of jail. Billionaire Ricardo "Rico" Valeron will do anything for his sister -- including kidnapping Felicity and taking her hostage to stop her from marrying the father of his sister's unborn child.
Kate Walker knows how to create a romance with just the right amount of suspense to enthrall her readers into coming back repeatedly and she has done it again with The Hostage Bride. She gives readers a true lesson in compassion and understanding and teaches us that everything is not always as you see it -- that you must really look close to see what is right before your eyes. . . Let Rico and Felicity take your heart hostage with Kate Walker's newest release

I have never bothered to write a review before but this book is so awful I feel I need to warn others. The heroine in kidnapped, drugged and hauled off before her wedding but that doesn't stop her flinging herself in the really irritating hero's arms every chance she gets, for no apparent reason ! Just want to tell to get a grip and keep her wedding dress on aggghhh!
