“New York Times bestselling author Cathy Maxwell returns with a delicious new series, The Brides of Wishmore
What happens when a bride says maybe?
She'd once been the toast of London, but now scandal has brought her down. Still, pretty, petted Lady Tara Davidson can't believe her new fate. She had wanted to marry for love . . . but her profligate father has promised her hand to none other than Breccan Campbell, the "Beast of Aberfeldy" and laird of the valley's most despised clan! Well, Tara may have to marry him, but Breccan can't make her love him—can he?
What happens when the groom insists?
Breccan Campbell is nobody's fool. He knows that Tara is trouble. Yet he's determined to reform the Campbell name even if it means forging an alliance with the arrogant beauty. There's no doubt that Tara is a challenge, and Breccan loves nothing more. For he's vowed to thoroughly seduce Tara—and make her his in more than name alone.” – The Bride Says Maybe
The Bride Says Maybe is another well written and captivating read by Cathy Maxwell. I didn’t necessarily like the main character of this book when she was introduced in “The Bride Says No.” However, in this book, she is more likeable, which makes for reading it a fun and breezy read. Lady Tara Davidson has more depth, and is much more than we previously read into her character than in the first novel in the series. The character of Breccan is fun and really challenges Lady Tara, which makes for an intriguing read of romance from a seemingly unlikely pair.
Overall, I enjoyed reading the second book in the trilogy, and definitely recommend it to anyone who loves a good romance novel. I can’t wait to read the third in the trilogy!
