This is the second book in the Brides trilogy starring the Dewar brothers.

Once upon a time and Elizabeth were in love. While they waited for her father's approval of their relationship they made plans for the future with every intention of being married. Then Reese went off to war and when he came back 3 short months later on leave it was to discover Elizabeth married to another man. He has never recovered, nor has he forgiven her. 8 years later Elizabeth is a widow and she shows up on his doorstep with her son. She is severely ill, scared and begging for sanctuary.

I hadn't realized this was the second book in a trilogy when I ordered it, so when I began the story I was a little afraid I would be lost having missed out on the first one. Luckily, this book is written in a way that it could have been easily a stand alone. Not once did I feel like I was missing anything.

This happens to be one of my favorite romance novel storylines. I like the idea of lovers separated by whatever reason and finding their way back to each other. I like the discovery of secrets long buried and I like intimate love scenes; this book had it all. I did, however, get a little tired of having to read about a certain part of the male anatomy standing at attention on every other page. The hero and another male character in this story had to be severely uncomfortable as it seems they were in a constant state of arousal. I kept hoping they'd take matters into their own hands (pun intended) so their man parts could relax a bit and blood could circulate to other parts of their bodies for a change.

This was my first book by Kat Martin, and though it wasn't my favorite historical romance, I am definitely interested enough to continue on with the series and try on another one of her books. It's an enjoyable and light and easy read.

About this book

Wiki

Elizabeth Holloway, widow of an abusive nobleman, is only interested in one thing—protecting her young son. Unfortunately, her greedy, amoral in-laws have moved in with Elizabeth, and now they’re drugging her so they can have guardianship of their nephew, and his money. With what might be her last coherent action, Elizabeth takes the boy and seeks shelter with her former lover, Reese Dewar. Reese hates Elizabeth. When he left to serve in the military, she married another man. However, Reese is a man of honor, and because of this, he agrees to protect his former lover and her son. But Elizabeth has a secret—the boy is really his. Danger, intrigue, steamy love scenes, and an exciting secondary plot make this a perfect book for fans of historical romances. This is the second book in Martin’s entertaining Brides trilogy (Royal’s Bride, 2009; and Rule’s Bride, due out in May 2010). --Shelley Mosley
