Book Description

June 28 2011 Bride Series (Book 8)
Dear Reader: The Sherbrooke family saga continues with James and Jason Sherbrooke, identical male twins who look exactly like their beautiful Aunt Melissande, and not at all like their father, the earl, which riles him no end. James, twenty-eight minutes older than his brother, is the heir. He is solid, is James. He’s a student of astronomy, rides like a centaur, and, unlike his brother, Jason, enjoys learning the ropes of managing his father’s estates. He no longer sows excessive wild oats, as his neighbor, Corrie Tybourne Barrett, a brat he’s known since she was three-years-old, looks forward to doing since she turned eighteen. When she nearly shoves him off a cliff, sneering all the while, James hauls off and spanks her. A promising start. Then, unfortunately, the earl, Douglas Sherbrooke, is shot at. This leads to Georges Cadoudal, a Frenchman in the employ of the English war ministry with whom Douglas had dealings with some years before. But Cadoudal died in 1815, fifteen years before. Were there children who might want revenge against Douglas? But the question is why: Georges and Douglas parted friends, at least Douglas believed that they had. Adventures compound; Corrie hurls herself into the thick of things. As for Jason, not quite a half an hour younger, he loves horses, wants to start a stud farm, still sows more oats than a man should be allowed, but finally meets a girl who stops him in his tracks. And then what happens? You will have to listen to the book to find out. I hope you enjoy yourself. The characters are rich, colorful, and a hoot to boot. The mystery will confound you. Do let me know what you think. Write me at P.O. Box 17, Mill Valley, CA., 94942 or email me at readmoi@aol.com. Keep an eye on my web site at www.CatherineCoulter.com. Catherine Coulter [signature]

Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Those who are drawn to the humor and cozy family dynamics of Coulter's Bride series (The Sherbrooke Bride, etc.), starring the lovable Sherbrooke family, will relish this new installment, which focuses on dashing identical twins James and Jason. The twins have had their share of sexual escapades, and though they think they still have a few more years to sow their "wild oats," romance sneaks up on them. James finds himself drawn to his tomboy neighbor, Corrie, who transforms from duckling to swan for her first season in London. Meanwhile, Jason waltzes into love with the alluring and mysterious Judith McCrae. But the twins' romances are put on hold when someone tries to kill their father, Douglas. Suspicion revolves around a man named Georges Cadoudal, a French spy who died 15 years earlier. Douglas suspects that Cadoudal's children may be trying to seek revenge, but he doesn't know how to track them down. Those new to the Sherbrooke family may be baffled by the mystery surrounding Cadoudal, but they'll be thoroughly charmed by James and Corrie and the affectionate banter among the family members, though some of their gags grow old after a while. A clever surprise ending wraps up the mystery subplot neatly and will ensure that many readers return for the next entry in Coulter's Sherbrooke saga.

From Booklist

In her latest Bride series installment, Coulter presents two identically handsome twins, James and Jason Sherbrooke. James has been tormented by Corrie ever since she was three years old, and is hoping that she will no longer be a thorn in his side now that she's about to set off for her first Season in London, but when James discovers what a lovely young lady the hoydenish Corrie has become, he realizes he has a whole new set of problems. As though the new and improved Corrie isn't enough to contend with, someone is trying to kill James and Jason's father. The twins must find out who wants their father dead, but James is distracted by Corrie, and Jason finds himself thinking about the beautiful and charming Judith, the one woman who just might tempt him into giving up his rakish ways. Coulter whips up another madly romantic, supremely sexy adventure, rich with eccentric characters and the author's special brand of fanciful humor. John Charles

Another great book by Catherine Coulter. If you like historical romances, you'll love this. Had me from the beginning to the end. Can't wait to see what happens with Jason.

2.0 out of 5 stars The Black Sheep of the Sherbrooke Family May 22 2004
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Coulter's recent historical romances have been pretty half-hearted, when compared to her "classics," but this was a true low point.
This book, in short, has the flaws of her other work without any of the charms. These flaws include the strange, stilted dialogue which she seems to feel is endlessly witty (curses using animal parts, characters "hitting each other over the head" with zingers or suggestive asides, male characters insulting female characters' intelligence based on their "womens' parts," etc.) as well as the strange tendency towards sexual violence that Coulter has always been drawn to. Many of her erotic scenes over the years have been, effectively, rapes and the love scene in Sherbrooke Twins is no exception. While a little excess passion once in a while can be interesting, a lot starts looking kind of dark and unhealthy. Why does Coulter think her reader wants her heroes to turn every wedding night into a scary, sticky, sore, demeaning experience for her heroines? It's 2004-- it's okay for female characters, even regency females, to enjoy sex right off the bat now! They don't have to get through a gauntlet of pain and humiliation first. They don't have to get abused by hubby just so we can feel bad for them and then revel with them in hubby's guilty and sincere apology (and his generous peace offering of belated foreplay and tender lovin'). I just don't find that all that sexy time after time. In fact, I find it a little medieval and mysogynistic. Paging Dr. Freud!
You'll also find some overused Coulter phrases in this one, such as the infamous "fat as a stoat." Catherine, a stoat is a weasel. A weasel is a relatively thin animal. Why must you use this expression in every novel? Why the constant comparisons to animals in general?

3.0 out of 5 stars Confusing and blah May 21 2004
By Emily
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I am a long time fan of Ms Coulter's all the way back to her early medieval novels. One of my favorite novels is the Sherbrook Bride and I am not a fan of her FBI thrillers so I was excited to see her revisit the Sherbrooks. The first part of the novel I found myself totally getting confused as to the point of conversations and who was speaking. Ms Coulter has a talent for writing whitty conversations but this was over the top. An example of taking a good thing way too far. Every character seemed to have to throw a whitty remark into every sentence it quickly got confusing and annoying. The story is mildly interesting and has it's moments but obviously a set up for that $20+ hard cover novel about the second twin.

5.0 out of 5 stars Being a Twin May 7 2004
By Katryn
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I happen to be a twin...I love Catherine Coulter books...so I just had to get it.
For me, it grabed me from the start, and while many may not find it to be a good read, I find it very difficult to find romance novels that I like. I know that Catherince has never disappointed me, and she did not here either. I could relate to the main characters as a twin myself, and I think Catherine got down what it is like to be a twin rather well.
I would recomend this to anyone that is an historical romance fan.

2.0 out of 5 stars Blech... May 6 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I genuinely enjoyed the story of Alexandra and Douglas Sherbrooke's stormy relationship, and how the finally settled into a decent couple. So it came as a complete shock to find that the qualities that drew me to them (their tempestuousness, spark and vigor) were completely devoid in this novel. Their children were equally as tepid; the only calling cards were their handsome good looks, which we were constantly reminded of. For every good Coulter book, there is an equally bad selection, and unfortunately this is one of the bad ones. On the plus side, it does set up the potential for a good Coulter book to come next.

4.0 out of 5 stars Clever story May 6 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I found this to be a clever story, and the author's handling of the plot to be outstanding. I see from other reviews that not everyone agrees, but perhaps it was because I came to this book totally unprepared and unbiased that I was able to fully appreciate it. You see, my wife brought it home and I picked it up, thinking it was going to be some sappy romance with little substance. And while it's not my usual cup of tea, I actually enjoyed the thing. Being in a book club allows me to read all kinds of novels, and I've actually recommended this one to go along with a few others we have. Lately we've been through DECEPTION POINT, TUESDAYS WITH MORRIE, and Jackson McCrae's BARK OF THE DOGWOOD, so I think we'll be able to handle this one as well, being the eclectic bunch that we are!

2.0 out of 5 stars Only persistence kept me reading this one. May 2 2004
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is the story of James and Jason Sherbrooke, loving twin sons of Alexandra/Douglas book. They are too beautiful by far ...and the reader certainly tires of hearing over and over how beautiful they are...and are steering clear of the marriage trap. Suddenly they are involved in protecting their father from an assassin and everyone joins together to this goal. The story line is weak and for some reason the characters never really come alive. They're "nice guys" and a nice family but the characters never grab you. The writing is very stiff and what little romance is in this isn't very inspiring. Certainly the 2 sex scenes are not impressive. Basically, don't bother with this one. In fact I think I'll be slower to pick out CC's bks in the future.
