My Brother's Bride

My Brother's Bride

Miss Abigail Nash is no stranger to loneliness. Her mother died giving birth to her, her father's business dealings took him away more often than not, and her ailing great-aunt, unable to provide much in the way of companionship, was a lack-luster guardian at best. When her dear friends offer to launch her into London society, her life takes a turn for the better. An insta...

My Brother's Bride Reviews

    This book officially releases tomorrow but it showed up on Amazon over the weekend. I had company in town but as soon as I was able to head to bed last night I started reading it. If I wasn't exhausted from the holiday weekend I would have stayed up to read all of it. Instead, I did the responsible thing and went to bed by midnight and waited until I got home from work today to finish it.

    This book officially releases tomorrow but it showed up on Amazon over the weekend. I had company in town but as soon as I was able to head to bed last night I started reading it. If I wasn't exhausted from the holiday weekend I would have stayed up to read all of it. Instead, I did the responsible thing and went to bed by midnight and waited until I got home from work today to finish it.

    My to-read list is long but Rachael is one author I always bump to the top and put all other books on hold for. She never disappoints so it's no surprise that this is another top-notch offering from Rachael.

    I loved these characters and cheered for them as they overcame obstacles and circumstances that tried to keep them apart. My Brother's Bride is an awesome and needed addition to the clean romance genre. So many authors pump out books so fast that often I find the quality of their work is lacking. Since I read for entertainment I'm able to forgive a lot and typically just overlook the shortcomings that are prevalent with so many books in this genre. Thankfully that is not the case with Rachael's books. I'm grateful for the time she takes to ensure she offers her readers quality books with original storylines that won't disappoint.

    Do yourself a favor and take the time to read this heartwarming romance!

    I absolutely love and adore Rachael Anderson's books. She's an author that is an "instant buy" author for me. I get so excited every time I see that she has a new book coming out. This Serendipity series is quickly becoming a favorite for me. I love the Regency time period. The manners, the dresses, the parties, the country estates, the carriage rides, the gentlemen, the courting. I love it!

    I absolutely love and adore Rachael Anderson's books. She's an author that is an "instant buy" author for me. I get so excited every time I see that she has a new book coming out. This Serendipity series is quickly becoming a favorite for me. I love the Regency time period. The manners, the dresses, the parties, the country estates, the carriage rides, the gentlemen, the courting. I love it! Now, I will clarify, that as much as I love reading about it, I probably (scratch that-no probably at all) wouldn't want to live during that time. But I can most definitely loving adore it all from afar and through research and reading about it in fiction novels and watch period dramas.

    Abby was a character whom I adored from the beginning. The bright personality combined with the quiet sorrow in her eyes drew me right in from the first introduction of her character. There was so much happening in this book, but as the reader it takes time to read have the truth be revealed. But please trust me when I say that it is all worth it!

    Morgan (or Brigston) is the beginning narrator for the book and I loved watching so much of the story unfold through his eyes. He's had a lot put on his shoulders through life and sorrows. When he meets his brother's new bride, the one he eloped with, Morgan knows that his life will never be the same. What was their reasoning behind eloping? Is she a schemer and using this marriage to get what she wants? What can he do to protect his brother?

    When everything he thoughts, changes and sorrow hits his family again, Morgan must learn what matters most. When Abby continues to bring joy, light and hope back into his life can he find a way to show her how much he cares for her? Or will all the laws of the land hold him back from what his heart truly desires?

    I don't want to spoil anything for this book, but there are so many things that I want to tell you about these two characters. I loved their relationship. Their friendship was so great! There are several other characters in this book that are essential in helping Morgan and Abby's relationship develop. Morgan was a perfect gentleman. I loved his quiet and gentle ways of doing great acts for Abby and for the other people in his life.

    From the first page to the final page, I loved every minute of my time reading this book. I had several moments of laughing with the characters, at the characters and aching and sorrowing with them as well. This book is not just about friendship, love and the characters' lives. There is depth, sorrow, pain, hope, healing and peace woven into the story as well. If you're a clean romance lover, this one is sure to bring many moments of happy reading enjoyment into your life. If you haven't read the first book, that's ok. The main character and sisters from the first book make several appearances but the author does a great job of introducing them during their first appearance in a way that you know the basic information and allows this book to be a stand alone. But, with as much as I loved this book, book one, My Sister's Intended is my favorite of the two!

    Friends, it's always a good day when I get to read a new book by Rachael Anderson. I've been reading her books since the very beginning and I love the way she has ventured out from contemporary romance into a new genre, regency, and made her place in it. I am loving these regency romances so much. I don't really think it's a genre thing though. Rachael Anderson just writes in a way that I love. Her books are so easy to settle in with and they just feel good to me.

    I thought this story was perfect

    I thought this story was perfectly paced. The knowledge of the characters came bit by bit, just enough to keep my interest and curiosity peaked but giving me plenty of time to really settle in and get to know them more intimately so they felt like friends. I loved the growing awareness between Abigail and Brigston and how gentle Brigston was with all things Abby related. Abby is definitely someone who could use a bit of gentleness.

    I loved this book. 💚

    Content: kissing, mention of a rape with some general details.

    Rachael Anderson is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. I devoured this book because I didn't want to stop reading. This is the second book in the author's Serendipity series,

    being the first, but each can be read as a standalone.

    Abigail (Abby) Nash has had an unusual upbringing. Her mother died while giving birth to her, her father was gone more than he was home, her great-aunt tasked with being her guardian was a tad too elderly to do a proper job, so Abby isn't

    Rachael Anderson is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. I devoured this book because I didn't want to stop reading. This is the second book in the author's Serendipity series,

    being the first, but each can be read as a standalone.

    Abigail (Abby) Nash has had an unusual upbringing. Her mother died while giving birth to her, her father was gone more than he was home, her great-aunt tasked with being her guardian was a tad too elderly to do a proper job, so Abby isn't your usual proper young lady. Not to say she's crase or uncouth in public, but she does things proper ladies don't do such as take off their shoes and stockings to put their feet in a stream, or take a stick to some cows to make them move out of the road. I loved the imagery that story provided.

    Jasper is the younger son who is a bit of a rake. Showering blond, blue-eyed, women with posies and attention until he tires of them. He's always professed that he didn't want to settle down, so what possessed him to run away to Gretna Green and marry Miss Abigail Nash, a young woman he barely knows? We eventually find out that Jasper wasn't as much of a rake as he seemed to be. In fact he could be quite the upstanding gentleman.

    Morgan is the Marquess of Brigston and the more serious of the brothers. When Parliament isn't in session he's busy taking care of the affairs associated with the family's estate and holdings. His mother wants him to marry but he hasn't found the woman he would want to settle down with.

    The story of these three individuals develops slowly (but not too slowly), so we really get to know the characters. I love the effect Abby has on Morgan. How she gets him to lighten up somewhat and he no longer spends all day in his study with his clerk on the household finances. One of my favorite scenes was when he and Abby played badminton (shuttlecock) in the ballroom--and it was his idea!! I loved their playful back and forth banter. Morgan is a caring man--he took it upon himself to make sure Abby was provided for, because she and Jasper didn't have a marriage contract and she was left penniless when he died. Abby hasn't had the easiest life but she deals with it showing courage and holding her head high. I loved Abby's friends Prudence, Knave, and Sophia who are wonderfully supportive of her. They truly are great friends.

    I learned some things about the marriage laws during this time that I didn't know before, and I couldn't wait to find out how our main characters would be able to find their happy ever after with the law in place.

    Abby first appeared in book 1 of this series and it was a delight to read her story.

    In the beginning she's recently newly married to Lord Jasper and everything is apparently going well. There's a hint of a mystery surrounding their marriage, but we don't get to find out what that is until her new husband dies in an accident.

    Morgan, Jasper's brother, is worried about her being widowed and with child, and very generously provides means for her to be taken care of. But Abby has a strong moral com

    Morgan, Jasper's brother, is worried about her being widowed and with child, and very generously provides means for her to be taken care of. But Abby has a strong moral compass and confesses to him the truth behind her union to Jasper.

    I loved seeing how Abby and Morgan came closer, first as friends, and then something more, and how conflicted they were with the truth of their feelings against the law of the time. It kept me reading to see how they'd solve the problem.

    The ending was super sweet.

    Looking forward to reading the next one.

    I love Regency books written by Rachael Anderson. She has a knack for writing a book that is thoughtful and contains humor.

    As a reader, I wondered along with his family members why a young man who loves living the single life, who loves being a rake and not looking at getting married anytime soon, would suddenly run off to Gretna Green and marry a woman he barely knows? The answers come a bit at a time. As the truth is revealed I realized that he is not the rake he portrays, but a man of charact

    I love Regency books written by Rachael Anderson. She has a knack for writing a book that is thoughtful and contains humor.

    As a reader, I wondered along with his family members why a young man who loves living the single life, who loves being a rake and not looking at getting married anytime soon, would suddenly run off to Gretna Green and marry a woman he barely knows? The answers come a bit at a time. As the truth is revealed I realized that he is not the rake he portrays, but a man of character. Unfortunately, (or fortunately for the progression of this book), he doesn't stick around for long. His time in the story is cut short by an unfortunate accident.

    The older brother decides to take care of the widow and her unborn child. The result is a fantastic love story full of banter and great dialogue. This is a book that calls to be read. You don't want to put it down but discover how the couple will overcome the law that forbids them to marry.

    You won't want to miss this second installment of the Serendipity Series. It can be read as a stand-alone.

    There is content that could be sensitive to victims of sexual assault.

    'My Brother's Bride' is the second book in the Serendipity series and having read the first one I was really happy to review this one. Though some of the major characters in the first story make an appearance, this could very well be read as a standalone. Just like the former novel, this one too deals with the nuances of love. It may strike unexpectedly, sometimes it may almost seem unattainable.

    'My Brother's Bride' is the second book in the Serendipity series and having read the first one I was really happy to review this one. Though some of the major characters in the first story make an appearance, this could very well be read as a standalone. Just like the former novel, this one too deals with the nuances of love. It may strike unexpectedly, sometimes it may almost seem unattainable.

    Abigail or Abby as she likes to be called is a delightful figure full of vitality and one would really can't grasp how she ended up marrying the rake, Jasper. But these initial impressions soon evaporate once the true nature of both is revealed. Jasper's death is one of the saddest in the book and Anderson has put down all her charm to adequately present the grief that haunted the Brigston household. The way Morgan opens his heart in front of his brother's gravestone is one of the beautiful imageries that has remained me with me throughout the reading of this book.

    Slowly and steadily, Abby and Morgan develop an intimate relationship filled with banter and fun and it was lovely to watch the sweet but forbidden romance blooming. The only dark cloud that disturbed me was the reference to the sexual assault which had shaken me completely. The story thereafter was tinged with a certain gloom that I was not able to shake off, even after the characters have decided to face the consequences bravely.

    Altogether a sweet romance that will fill you with joy even with the slight taste of bitterness. Another unforgettable story that reminds you that nothing can stand the way of true love.

    I love Rachael Anderson's books. My Brother's Bride was particularly touching because it dealt with a series issue.

Even though his role in the book was short, he made an impact. Morgan was also a fantastic character. I loved how he and Abby interacted. There was a certain scene in the kitchen between Morgan and Abby where I was laughing out loud. The pacing and plot of this book are perfectly laid out. Just the right things would happen at just the right time.
