    More Than Just a Romance!

    The Bewildered Bride by Vanessa Riley is book four in her Advertisements for Love series. Though part of a series, this novel is a standalone, as are all the books in the series. Ruth Croome is a beautiful Blackamoor heiress. She abandons her childhood dreams of her wedding and elopes with handsome Adam Wilky. The couple is brutally attacked and each believes the other is dead. Adam is sold into impressment with the Navy but vows to return and avenge his wife. Adam returns under his real name, which he had never revealed to Ruth. They develop a friendship that could progress to the great passion they had before, if Ruth can be convinced to overlook Adam’s deception. There are interesting plot twists throughout, but the story lost my attention briefly at times. Nevertheless, The Bewildered Bride is a very interesting multicultural romance. The author not only tackles the subject of interracial relationships, she delves even deeper and broaches the highly sensitive subject of racial passing. Riley has done her research and presents an accurately detailed historical depiction. I rate this novel 4 out of 5 stars and recommend it to lovers of romance, especially historical romance. I have already purchased and plan to read the previous books in the series. My thanks to Entangled Publishing, LLC and NetGalley for the opportunity to read an advance copy of this book. However, the opinions expressed in this review are 100% mine and mine alone.

    The Healing Power Of Love

    This is a bittersweet story. Adam and Ruth are treated to horrible injustices because of their race. They however fight back. They have to fight to rebuild their love and marriage. They have to fight the physical scars as well as the emotional ones that come from the abuse they suffered. The author does a wonderful job of telling this tale of love, loss and redemption. You will love the characters and root for them every step of the way to their joyful end.

    satisfying romance

    This ARC was courtesy of netgalley - all thoughts and opinions are mine and unbiased I had to read this all in one go - couldn't put down - I became emotionally involved from page one right to the end No spoilers - but there is a trauma - the author has done a wonderful job of presenting the trauma through the heroine, Ruth - but I did find it upsetting and - won't lie - there were tears - very satisfying !! I love a romance I can get involved in !! A second chance romance - this was a lovely read - I recommend to anyone who loves their romances with a little bittersweetness to them
