Dare I admit... I enjoyed Salt Bride more than many of Georgette Heyer's own beloved works and that is high praise indeed

Salt Bride is by far my favorite by Lucinda Brant. The characters are fully realized in the story through their actions and their words. The love story is strong and real. This is a couple that has loved for years. I appreciate the reality of history in this novel. When the couple is married, they have to move past their differences in order to live in a nosey and ofttimes judgmental society. The conflict in the story is realistic, scary, and well-thought out. I loved that the conflict was not the typical 'I don't like you because I refuse to try to understand you' that so many authors fall back on. I noticed the comment about the grammar. First, I would like to point out that the book is free right now. And it isn't a novella, it is a full-length, plot-driven novel. Second, I have bought books for anwhere from $5-$8 that have less character development and a more predictable plot. So, I hope that you take the time to give this book a chance. Prepare yourself with enough time to read it in one sitting because you will not want to put the book down.
Hope this helped you decide to buy the book!! :)
'Okay,' I thought; 'maybe it's just a typo.' No such luck. There are numerous mis-wordings of a similar nature. Just a few examples: the use of "breath" (as in, "she could not breath") where the word "breathe" is clearly needed, or the word "whit" (which means "a small amount") where the word "wit" is needed (as in, "she had not the whit or will to employ a lady's maid"), "clamored" for "clambered" (as in "the child clamored up onto his uncle's lap". What this actually means is that the child is making a loud sustained noise onto his uncle's lap, which is either a bit creepy, or unintentionally hilarious.)
In addition, there are numerous examples of poorly-structured sentences, such as "... the gentleman in the tall toupee, which Jane noticed wore clothes cut from a cloth befitting a gentleman." What this sentence (I hope unintentionally) says is that the toupee is wearing clothes made from cloth befitting a gentleman. For all we know, the gentleman himself may be naked.
Moreover, there is WAY too much made of the heroine's beauty - she is evidently so gorgeous that people literally cluster around her and stare at her in public. She is advised by a perfect stranger that this is acceptable behavior and she owes those staring at her the reward of a smile.Read more ›
It is the year 1763 and King George III is on the throne. Georgian aristocratic life is synonymous with elegance and a devil-may-care pleasure, and the upper classes enjoy a kind of amorality in their love lives. Men, and women, are inclined to take their pleasure where they choose. It is this angle, the tawdry underbelly of high society that the author captures so brilliantly in this eminently readable novel. The rakish, raucous character of the Georgian period is contrasted superbly with the sophistication of the age. The author has created a love story that fans of historical romance will relish.Read more ›
