THE REBELLIOUS BRIDE
Avon, Apr 2002, 5.99, 384 pp.
In 1816 England, American visitor Quinn Peverill misses the freedom of her native Baltimore. Bored with societal rules and not knowing most of them, Quinn goes about London unescorted while her father conducts business. At about the same time, Lord Marcus Northrup takes on the Robin Hood mantle of the Saint of the Seven Dials from his recently married friend when he observes Quinn disguised as a lad trying to help a young pickpocket.
Not expecting to see one another ever again, Marcus and Quinn are caught in a situation that requires they marry. Neither one wants to wed a stranger, but society dictates they must to avoid a scandal. Thus the couple get hitched. As they become acquainted with one another they argue and fight until love enters the relationship.
Brenda Hiatt is highly regarded by Regency romance readers for her energizing tales starring warm characters. Her latest novel, THE REBELLIOUS BRIDE, is a fun sequel to ROGUE'S HONOR. Though the bickering between the lead protagonists is amusing it also slows down the action. Still, readers will find the independent fiery Quinn a charmer and Marcus a hero while simply enjoying the latest Saint tale and vowing they want more such stories.
