Catherine coulter series: A Brit in the FBI. Baron. Douglas Sherbrooke, Earl of Northcliffe, is a man besieged. He must have an heir. Thus, he must first provide himself with the requisite bride. Alexandra Chambers, youngest daughter of the Duke of Beresford, has loved Douglas Sherbrooke since she was fifteen.

Dear Reader: Philippa de Beauchamp, as impulsive as she is beautiful, flees her father's castle when she hears she is to be wed to the repellent Baron de Bridgport. But her daring escape in a wool wagon quickly becomes a misadventure, and she winds up in the arms of Dienwalk de Fortenberry, a rogue as smooth and bold as Aquitaine wine. The number-one New York Times-bestselling author returns with a brand-new Sherbrooke novel, featuring a cast of witty and outrageous characters and two wonderfully complex mysteries.

I am not a Catherine Coulter fan. What a pity because a lot of her books SOUND good. But yet when I start them I quickly find my mind wandering. what shall I make for dinner? did I give my daughter lunch money today? got to remember to pay my cell phone bill and so on and so forth. This is the 3rd book by Ms Coulter that I have tried with the same results.

Dear Reader,The Heir first appeared as Lord Deverill's Heir all the way back in 1980. I hope you enjoy The Heir. Do let me know what you think. I have extensively rewritten this novel, giving it greater scope and depth, but most important are the changes in all the characters. They are now richer and fuller, brimming with life and passion. Justin Deverill, the new Earl of Strafford, is a military man who is strong, shrewd, stubborn, and very possibly one of the most handsome men to ever become an earl. As for his cousin, Arabella, whom he must wed or gain nothing but an empty title, she is more like him than either of them would like to admit.

She followed up The Autumn Countess with five more single novels revolving around the Regency theme, namely The Rebel Bride (1997), The Heir (1980), The Duke (1997), and Lord Harry.

The Sherbrooke Bride. She followed up The Autumn Countess with five more single novels revolving around the Regency theme, namely The Rebel Bride (1997), The Heir (1980), The Duke (1997), and Lord Harry. She continued the series while she started new lines of stories, all connected under the Regency theme. The Bride series is perhaps the most successful of these, starting with The Rebel Bride (1979) and continues until today with the latest novel, The Prince of Ravenscar, published in 2011.

I will consider it. Now, I would like to go riding. The sun is out and I wish to take full advantage of it. nto the room, cleared his throa. nto the room, cleared his throat, and announced, My lord, Lady Ann, there is a young gentleman just arrived. A very foreign young gentleman. But he is a gentleman and not a merchant or a shop owner. Thank God for that, the earl said, the irony floating gently over Crupper’s ancient head. Just how foreign is he, Crupper?. It is awfully early in the morning for visitors,.

Let me start off by saying, I did not finish this book so I am only writing this review in the first 7 chapters. I soon disliked Arebella so much that I really didn’t care what happened to her. I just could get passed my dislike for her to read very far.

I am a fan of Coulter's. I love the Night Trilogy, yes even Night Storm the one a lot of people seem to hate. I adore The Rebel Bride. Love The Deception even if I hate, hate, hate the mother. I thought The Nightingale Legacy was charming. I'd marry Gray from Mad Jack in a minute (were he not already married to Jack) and I even like Douglas Sherbrooke in The Sherbrooke Bride. Yeah, the guy people think is really, really mean!

I cannot bring myself to finish this book.

For the first time in a really long time, I found myself peeking ahead in the book once I neared the wedding ceremony and the wedding night to see if it would get any better. It didn't.

I hate people who read the last page in the book before they're supposed to! Yeah, this book made me one of those people!

I dislike both the main characters and while I do not tend to write negative reviews based on the actions of the characters in a book, if neither of the main characters are likable? I can't see why I'd want to read the book. I was a third of the way into the book and wondering "why am I doing this to myself" before I came to my senses and stopped.

Also, I can usually get around the cousins issue, it was pretty common back then, as long as it's not constantly remarked upon over and over again as though the characters are getting off on it. This book? It happens much too often and it became a problem. Scenes that should have been hot were not.

I love Catherine Coulter but this was not her best work. Maybe I'll reread the Night Trilogy to get this book out of my head.

Love her books.

I've read much better Coulter books. It was rather predictable, & I became a little bored with the stupid jealousy between all the characters! For me it was just ok.
Arith
