Review of Once Again a Bride

ONCE AGAIN A BRIDE may be purchased here.

Jane Ashford

Charlotte Rutherford Wylde finds herself a very young widow, after her husband is murdered.  Charlotte, who brought lots of money into the marriage, finds herself almost impoverished, because her eccentric, older husband spent most of the money on his Roman collection.  As per her husband's will, Charlotte may continue to live in their house, but she must not sell or disturb his collection.  Sir Alexander Wylde, Charlotte's husband's nephew, is the executor of the will, and when someone breaks into Charlotte's house, Alexander takes her to his home with his two sisters and aunt as chaperones. 

ONCE AGAIN A BRIDE is a delightful regency romance, with charming characters and many amusing moments.  Charlotte has been so down-trodden by her husband, that she has lost much of her luster.  Thankfully, Charlotte becomes determined to change her life for the better, and she makes herself useful to Alexander by helping with his sisters.  Alexander isn't the normal romance hero.  Alexander is the solid, responsible type, who tries to do the right thing, but sometimes can't say no to his precocious youngest sister.   Alexander is one of my favorite heroes.  It is wonderful to see a strong, solid, responsible man, who is caring toward his family.  The secondary characters are just as delightful as the main characters, even the cat, Callie, wormed her way into this reader's heart.  I greatly enjoyed ONCE AGAIN A BRIDE and highly recommend it.

NOTE:  I received this book in return for an unbiased review.
