  • Absolutely sublime!

    As agreed upon like so many times before, Jonah was to meet HIS WAYWARD BRIDE, Irene. Because he had some business to attend to for his father, Jonah was in London earlier than planned. He's had enough of meeting his wife in secret; after four years, he wants a real marriage and he's prepared to issue Irene an ultimatum: him or the academy where she teaches. But his early arrival has some unexpected consequences. I am a die-hard fan of Theresa Romain's, Romance of the Turf is one of my favourite historical romance series, and to take a character from the Mrs. Brodie’s Academy for Exceptional Young Ladies anthology - Mrs. Chalmers - for our heroine Irene was a stroke of genius! HIS WAYWARD BRIDE is a very complex romance set in 1819 London working class. Ms. Romain's painstaking research gives the story an unmistakable authenticity: from Jonah's stud farm to the heartaches brought on by absent fathers and living as a person of colour in Regency England (Irene and her brother are biracial; their mother is black, their father white); this world felt real to me. HIS WAYWARD BRIDE is a very compelling and emotional story as Irene and Jonah deal with their family issues as well as their own problems. The love they feel for each other was palpable, but I wondered if Irene loved Jonah as much as he loved her. I needed convincing and Ms. Romain did it brilliantly! There are several important characters in this novel, every one of them superbly defined, and all inextricably linked to the plot. And the secrets? You have no idea! Theresa Romain's lyrical prose is legendary but her exploration of the human psyche is just as extraordinary; this author simply does not do superficial, for which I am eternally grateful. HIS WAYWARD BRIDE is a riveting and emotional story and the perfect ending to the fabulous Romance of the Turf series.

    Thanks for your feedback!
