Book Description

The Wetherby Brides, Book 3...

Setting: Regency England
Sensuality: Warm (7)

When Chloe Hawthorne is asked to chaperone her cousin during the London Season, it is with a heavy heart that she departs her home and family in Essex.Though she has been widowed for more than a year, she has yet to move on, and is loathe to do so. But when she meets her cousin's fiancee, Lord Andrew Wetherby, she must choose between honoring her cousin's impending marriage and following her heart.

Andrew Wetherby has chosen the perfect bride. She is well bred and beautiful - what more could the second son of a marquess ask for? However, when Lady Elizabeth's new chaperone arrives on the scene, he knows he's made a mistake of monumental proportions. The young widow with the russet curls captures his undivided attention, but as a gentleman, there is little he can do about it...or is there?

1.0 out of 5 stars I couldn't even finish it January 28, 2012
By Lnzy
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase was free. But the tone and feeling of the story didn't resonate the Regency Period at all. I thought it had a few cute moments, but honestly, the characters were just so shallow I didn't care. I had to delete it about half way through the book because I jsut got more and more aggravated. There were also misspellings and odd things - like main male character "turned on his heal..." Heal? Really? I then hauled out my very old copy of "The Grand Sophy" by Georgette Heyer because I was so in the mood for a GOOD Regency romance novel. I hate giving poor reviews but I feel duped by reading the five star reviews!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun and touching February 16, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
The Wary Widow is one of those books that has stayed on my mind for days. One of my favorite parts is when the hero and heroine are at a garden party and involved in a version of hide-and-seek. The story is playful and fun, but it also has touching moments. I especially like that their relationship grows as the story progresses. I feel like Chloe and Andrew have a solid foundation on which to have a lasting relationship. That happily ever after I want when I read a romance. Bravo. Looking forward to more stories in the Weatherby Bride Series, at least I hope there are more.

1.0 out of 5 stars Unreadable Rubbish February 9, 2012
By Rachel
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This kindle book was free so I thought I would give it a go. UGH! Can't even make it through to the end, and I can read just about anything! This was SO clumsily written, with wooden characters who behave in an inexplicable fashion. I mean really, is it romantic to have the hero lead the heroine out into a garden and have her press her hand against his "bulge" to show her how he feels? I don't care that this is a historical romance, if someone ever did that to me I would be offended, and yet, this is somehow a turn-on for her? Just your kindle space for something worth reading cause the author would have to pay ME to get me to read any more!

5.0 out of 5 stars Tender love story February 9, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
This was an excellent romance--I couldn't put it down. Got hooked while we were iced in one day and simply had to finish it. A very tender, sweet love story about two people who shouldn't fall in love but do--and try to do the right thing, even when it nearly costs them their own romance. My heart broke for the heroine when she was finally forced to leave off mourning for her husband and wear colors again. Highly recommended!

I was really disappointed in this book. I didn't finish it because of the bad language and overly descriptive sex scenes. Don't get me wrong... I love romance novels... CLEAN romance novels. We all know what happens when two people love each other... so does it really need to be described in detail on paper? Besides.... I don't think a book needs to include that type of material in order to get people to read it. It is demoralizing and very frustrating for someone who's just looking for a quick, clean romance read. Even if you are a fan of "The Notebook" type of romance novels... the grammatical and spelling errors were hard to overlook. In the end... there are much better books out there to read... regardless of whether this one was free or not... a price which was way too expensive considering the flaws of this book.

2.0 out of 5 stars Pass. Predictable, repetitive fluff. April 7, 2012
By Baz Kay
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Okay, so I knew that this wasn't going to be a deep, meaningful tale when I bought it. But I figured I could pass a few hours with some relatively mindless, fluff reading. What I didn't expect was all the predictability and repetitiveness, however. They can't be together because he's engaged to her cousin! Her cousin would be heartbroken! They can't possibly hope for a future because of her cousin! Whatever will her cousin think? What are they to do about her cousin? It got to the point where I'd just roll my eyes and read on. And the further in we got, the more predicable it got. I won't give you spoilers, but nothing about this story was a surprise.

For personal gripe, I also didn't like the font, nor the way it was set.

2 stars. I'd give this book a pass.

The potential was here for a sweet romance with some mischief thrown in, with the identical twins switching places to be with the women they love. However, what should have been a romantic scene turned crude and I stopped reading. I realize that many romances have descriptive sex scenes in them, but I don't read them and won't this one either. 2 stars for what it could have been.

1.0 out of 5 stars This was published? May 14, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Ok... apparently anyone can write a book and have it published these days... the redundancy of wording alone is enough for an average reader to wince but it's the unbelievable dribble and typical plot devices that truly have you skipping through complete chapters. The ending wasn't even worth it as with any "romance" novel you know how it will end anyways and this author certainly should take a class or two before putting out another book.. preferably English 101 and to believe one's readers are dumb and naive is really insulting and the characters are all complete morons.

More About the Author

Jerrica Knight-Catania knew from an early age that she was destined for romance. She would spend hours as a young girl sitting in a chair by an open window, listening to the rain, and dreaming of the day Prince Charming would burst in and declare his undying love for her. But it wasn't until she was 28-years-old, tired of her life in the theater, that she turned her focus toward writing Regency Romance novels. All her dreaming paid off, and she now gets to relive those romantic scenes she'd dreamt up as a child as she commits them to paper. She lives in sunny Palm Beach with her real life Prince Charming, their Princess-in-training and their aristocat, Dr. Snuggle.
