Captain Amberton's Inherited Bride by Jenni Fletcher - Book Review & Giveaway

Amazon USA Amazon UK Goodreads

Review by Suze

Violet has never known any freedom. Her father dictated her life and made sure her world was very small. Unfortunately his death doesn't bring the release she seeks, her father still doesn't want her to make her own choices and has limited her options through his will. Violet is forced to either marry the man of his choosing or become entirely penniless and alone, which means she has to marry the insufferable Captain Lance Amberton. If they'd exchange vows he would gain plenty of money and Violet will have a title. However, there's a lot she has to give up if she'd say yes. What should she do?

Lance isn't as mean as Violet thinks he is. He doesn't particularly want to get married either, but his brother is missing and he has to step in. That's why he offers Violet as much space in their marriage as she desires. She can travel, will have her own money and can do whatever she pleases. They will sleep in separate rooms and he will give her everything she needs. Violet is tempted to accept this generous offer, even if it means she might not find love, but can she trust Lance and will he keep his promises? Does Violet actually want him to be this honorable or will spending time with Lance change her wishes?

Captain Amberton's Inherited Bride is a wonderful romantic story. Lance is the black sheep of the family. He has quite a reputation, but people can change. After his brother's disappearance Lance wants to do the right thing, only that doesn't always prove to be easy. He has a big challenge ahead of him. Violet might look adorable, but she's fierce, intelligent and determined. Her father forced her to be obedient, but she no longer tolerates being bossed around. I loved that about her character. She has a fantastic fiery spirit and she needs it when she's around the moody Lance. There are plenty of sparks between them and I couldn't wait to find out where their story would lead.

Jenni Fletcher has written a fantastic entertaining book. I loved the vivid descriptions of her main characters' personalities and their surroundings. She makes everything she writes about come to life in a delightful way and her story has the exact right atmosphere. There are plenty of fascinating twists and turns that kept me captivated from beginning to end and I read Captain Amberton's Inherited Bride in one sitting. It's an amazing heartwarming story that put a big smile on my face.

Advice

If you love historical romance you should definitely read Captain Amberton's Inherited Bride.

About Jenni Fletcher



Jenni Fletcher was born on the north coast of Scotland and now lives in Yorkshire, where she writes Medieval, Roman and Victorian romance novels.

She studied English at Cambridge University before doing an MA on Women and Literature in English and a PhD on Victorian & Edwardian literature at Hull University. After realising that she was better at writing than teaching, she worked in a number of administrative jobs whilst trying to finish her first book, which was rejected. Thinking there must have been some mistake, she then wrote another, which was fortunately accepted by Harlequin Mills&Boon.

She spends a large part of her day obsessing about things like the Oxford Comma and whether she uses exclamation marks too often (she does!) whilst getting distracted by Twitter. The rest of the time she drinks too much caffeine, eats too much chocolate, and tries not to drop crumbs into her keyboard.

When not writing, obsessing or cleaning up after her children, she likes mountain biking, hiking and watching period dramas (her husband joins her for two of those). She knows nothing about sport or crime fiction, but can talk with authority on Minecraft, Star Trek (mainly Next Generation) and the Lord of the Rings.

Her favourite Jane Austen novel is Persuasion and her favourite Brontë is Anne. If she had to choose a romantic hero it would be John Thornton, but maybe that’s just because she’s Northern.
