Sir Adam Dayne, an English knight, is offered a prize that can't be refused, by the lordship of Langforful castle. All he must do is accept a betrothal to the Scottish Marcher warden’s eldest daughter, Lady Cora Maxwell, beautiful and fiesty. Only one problem, she hates everything English, including this sexy, handsome Knight. This match will hopefully, keep the peace on the tumultuous Anglo-Scottish border.
Well written with engaging and captivating characters. The storyline is fast paced, intriguing and passionate.
I was glued to the pages, instantly. I read it in one setting. I enjoyed the interaction between Adam and Cora, as their attraction intensifies. But, will they be able to hold the peace, find their HEA, and keep the peace between the English and Scottish border.
Filled with plenty of action, a secret or two, romance, intrigue and love. Ms. Mecca manages to bring this Novella together for an enticing, captivating and seductively intriguing story. I would recommend "The Ward's Bride" for fans of Medevial romance, Border romance, intrigue, and novellas. Great job, Cecelia Mecca! I can't wait to read more of the "Border" series.
Heat rating: Mild
Cora is not a fan of the English. She has no intention of living in England and longs to return to Scotland. Hoping to discourage Adam's affections, she finds the opposite happens.
This was a fun, easy read over the weekend. It follows a well-worn path and fans of the genre won't be disappointed.
There were parts of it, however, that I squinted. It seemed to have incredibly romantic notions about that time period and English-Scot relations, but if you're looking for a short escape, I'm sure you'll enjoy this.

Coldstream, Scotland , 1245
Due to tension during peace talks among the borders there was an attack. To make amends it is decided English Knight, Sir Adam Dayne, will wed Scottish Cora Maxwell. She is the daughter of the Scot’s Marcher Warden.
Neither Adam or Cora finds this forced marriage appealing. Cora hates everything English and plans to dissuade his decision. Cora wants to return home to Scotland to see her family again. She doesn't want to be abandoned in some forlorn keep in Southern England!
Even though it was a forced marriage Adam is an honorable man and very protective for those he cares for. He knows he is going to have to court his wife to keep her. Yet will it be enough?
A beautifully written novella that I absolutely loved from start to finish. This is my first book by author Cecelia Mecca but definitely won't be the last. I look forward to reading more books from this author.
I received a complimentary reader’s copy that I voluntarily agreed to do a fair review and blog. All thoughts, ideas and words are my own.
The Ward's Bride (Border Series Prequel Novella) - Amazon.com
What a slow, steamy, simmering love story!! The entire book is centered around the Hero and Heroine. He is bound by honor and has devoted himself to his new wife. Cora, on the other hand, has only one thing in mind: to end this marriage and return to her family in Scotland. The last thing she desires is a loveless marriage like her parents had and especially to an Englishman. She cuts a deal with her new husband to hold off consummating their vows in exchange for getting to know one another for a fortnight, but she's only wishing for time to figure out her exit strategy.
This entire book will have you in knots hoping for the best because you'll instantly love the characters. I recommend this read highly. I'd give it 10 stars if they were available.
