Abigail Sutton doesn’t know what she's
going to do. Her father has run off to the gold fields of
California and left her all alone to wait on her brother,
who's coming to town to accompany her back East. However,
Abby doesn’t have time to wait on his arrival because Newton
Smith, the town bully, has set his sights on making her his
wife. Abby’s only choice is to marry someone else before
Newton can force her to marry him - someone that is willing
to let her go once her brother arrives. Her choice? Miguel
Miguel Ruiz has silently watched and
wanted Abby Sutton for months. Her charm and manners are
something that he's noticed, as well as her other female
attributes. He keeps his feelings to himself because it's
dangerous for a Hispanic man to lust after a white woman.
Not is it only dangerous, it is almost enough to get him
killed. When Abby shows up at his home and asks him to
marry her and explains why, Miguel agrees. He wouldn’t be
able to live with himself if something happened to Abby that
he could have prevented. However, he doesn’t count on his
feelings for this beautiful woman, feelings that he's sure
he will never get over, even after he has let her go.
I loved every word of Bold Bride.
I found the storyline intriguing and the love scenes
sensuous enough to melt even the most frozen of hearts.
Miguel is my type of hero – quiet, unassuming, but deadly
when the need calls for it. His love and adoration of Abby
was quite amazing, given the fact that marrying a Caucasian
might have led to his death in the not so modern historical
west. Abby’s fortitude to make Miguel as happy as possible
during the course of their marriage was bold indeed - even I
blushed. All in all, Bold Bride is a mighty
fine historical romance – one that I will reread over and
