Blanche Harrington has resigned herself
to a life devoid of passion and love but she needs a husband.
She will have to choose one gentleman from her long list of
Rex de Warenne lives a solitary life in
the country. He is plagued by guilt and loneliness. He has
always admired Blanche, but only from afar.
Blanche arrives at Rex’s home and catches
him a compromising position with the maid. Rex is convinced he
will never win her affections now but Blanche is an amazing
woman and they begin to forge a friendship anyway. They each
harbor secrets though. Rex has a son no one knows about and
Blanche is beginning to remember the day her mother was
brutally killed. Blanche’s secret is not only destroying her
relationship with Rex, it is threatening her life.
There is passion and pleasure in
The Perfect Bride, but the hardships Rex and Blanche
face are constant. Rex and Blanche are wonderful characters
and I was so pleased to see them find happiness together.
They took a very troubled road but it led them to a lovely
ending. The Perfect Bride is a good story, but
one I found to have more anguish than joy.
