How to Lose a Bride in One Night by Sophie Jordan (Forgotten Princesses #3)

Historical Romance

From Goodreads:

"He saved her life...

When Annalise Hadley is tossed over the side of her honeymoon barge, the newly-minted duchess knows she's been left for dead -- for her husband's only interest is in her vast dowry, not her muddied lineage. However, she didn't count on a savior. Especially not an honorable, sinfully intriguing earl who will tempt her to risk everything—again.

Now he will seduce her heart and soul

A man with his own demons, Owen Crawford, the reclusive Earl of McDowell, is enchanted by the mysterious, courageous woman he rescued. He will help her heal, teach her to protect herself, and then send her away—so that she’ll never see he’s far from the hero she believes him to be.

But days and nights alone prove that some secrets are meant to be discovered...some desires are too powerful to resist…and some wounds can only be healed by love.'

Annalise is another of Jack’s children.  If you have read the previous books you know he went out and found his illegitimate children and brought them into society.  He goal is to marry them to quality and Annalise has just married a Duke but there is no HEA for those two."

How to Lose a Bride in One Night has some very interesting characters.  There are the gypsies who help out.  There is Owen who suffers from what we know as PTHD.  There is Annalise who decides to never be a victim again.  And there is the horrible Duke who tried to kill Annalise.  When they are all mixed up they help make a very good story.  I wondered how Annalise would get out of her bad marriage and was glad to see the Duke get what he deserved. 

Annalise and Owen had a rough but enjoyable journey to their HEA.  How to Lose a Bride in One Night was a good addition to the Forgotten Princesses series.

Avon published How to Lose a Bride in One Night by Sophie Jordan in 2013.

I received an ARC of How to Lose a Bride in One Night from Edelweiss.

Hi Jo,

Romance is quite high up my list of preferred genres, although I couldn't read them to the exclusion of everything else, especially my favourite murder mystery / suspense thrillers.

I have read a couple of other series, where each book is the story of a one of a group of siblings and we learn how they individually form their unique personalities and forge their own lives, so this series might be worth a look, although I shall need to go back to the first book and read them in sequence.

Nice review and thanks for sharing,
