Shygirl: Reading After Midnight

I will read anything I can get my hands on. Seriously.

 Most books I read are reviewed for Harlequin Junkie, but I'll have an occasional independent or author requested review that I'll post.

A Historical Romance Filled With Witty Bantering And--Gasp!!--Secrets

The Spring Bride - Anne Gracie

‘He was not leaving England again; murder charge or not, he’d stay and fight for his future — his future at Wainfleet, and his future with Miss Jane Chance.’

The Spring Bride was an entertaining historical romance where neither of our main characters were who they seemed to be at first glance, which only added to the fun — and mayhem.

 

First of all, look at that beautiful cover! It screams Springtime to me, so I thought it fit the book’s title very well. Secondly, I really enjoyed the witty bantering between our protagonists. Anne Gracie had a way of switching from dialogue that was full of teasing and lightheartedness, to wonderfully descriptive explanations of the character’s feelings and innermost thoughts, which were oftentimes quite serious. That balanced out the story, keeping it from getting too overwhelming during the darker sections.
