Another V(ictory) for historical romance fans,
By A Customer
This review is from: A Valentine Wedding (Mass Market Paperback)
They had been childhood friends, who became lovers. By 1808, they became engaged, but Lady Emma Beaumont jilted Lord Alisdair Chase. Two years later, Emma's brother Ned, the Earl of Grantley, dies from a sniper's bullet in Portugal while trying to deliver important papers to Wellington. She inherits the estate, but to her chagrin she learns that her sibling has named Lord Alisdair Chase as the trustee.
Emma and Alisdair remain attracted to one another, but both are still reeling from the end of their previous relationship. Emma decides that marriage, which will allow her spouse to take charge of her inheritance, is a better avenue than dealing with the spiteful Alisdair for every pence she needs. Emma pledges to be married by St. Valentine's Day. Alisdair intends to be the groom. However, as they engage in their bedroom battle, the Peninsula War comes to England as the duo inadvertently becomes involved in her sibling's last action.
Highly regarded historical romance author Jane Feather is clearly a superheavyweight when it comes to providing readers with an entertaining and rousing romance. A VALENTINE WEDDING is an invigorating Regency romance filled with two warm and witty lead protagonists and plenty of action. Anyone who reads this novel will clearly feel that "V" stand for another Feather victory.
