For my #3 challenge (Title With Wedding Word), I read The Overlord's Bride by Margaret Moore. Lady Elizabeth Perronet is given an ultimatum by her miserly uncle - marry Lord Kirkheathe, Raymond Destienne, in place of her cousin Genevieve, or return to the convent where she was mistreated for thirteen years. Rather than return to the convent, Elizabeth decides to take a chance on marriage to the dour Lord Kirkheathe.

Raymond Destienne had a reason to distrust all women - years ago, he had killed his first wife, Allicia, in self defense. Her death left him with a ruined voice and a broken heart. His overlord had deemed him faultless, although castle gossips still blamed him for her death.

Now the time has come for him to marry again. Surprisingly, Elizabeth's sunny disposition and loving heart just might help Raymond to overcome the scars of the past. I give this sweet medieval romance a B+!

B+! - (89-94%)

May you read well and often
