Who is the protagonist here? July 24 2000
By Mystery Lover - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
So many secondary characters abound in THE STOLEN BRIDE, the reader almost needs a score card to keep track. A sequel to THE STANFORD SECRETS, many of those characters return in this continuing regency saga. Warning: if you haven't read THE STANFORD SECRETS, you should do so before reading THE STOLEN BRIDE, as the author has many spoilers spread throughout the book.
There's a reason why this book is so hard to find. It really isn't up to the author's usual standards, and I'm sure she would want to rewrite it before reprinting it again. While there was a plot of sorts, there wasn't much romance between the title character and her fiance. In fact, the book's biggest weakness is that we never really connect with Lady Sophie. We are given much more insight into one of the secondary characters, Beth Hawley, who is portrayed much better. THE STOLEN BRIDE isn't one of the author's best works, but then, it is one of her earliest efforts. If you never locate a copy, be satisfied with one of her more recent books, which are much better.

Not Beverley's best, but readable Nov. 4 2002
By Dr W. Richards - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book is ostensibly the story of Lady Sophie Kyle and her fiance Lord Randal Ashby. Sophie and Randal became engaged just after the drama which came at the end of Lord Wraybourne's Betrothed, and as I found Sophie and Randal more interesting than Jane and David, I wanted to read this book.
The first half of the book is far more about Beth Hawley, Jane's old governess, however. Beth is on her way to Steyne for the festivities leading to Sophie and Randal's wedding, when she meets up with Sir Marius Fletcher, another friend of David Wraybourne. He's a very big man, but unfailingly courteous, though with a good sense of humour. We sniff a secondary romance, and we'd be right.
On to Sophie and Randal, though, and for most of the book we only really see them through other characters' eyes. Something's wrong with what should be a blissful romance. Randal is avoiding Sophie, while she tries to flirt with him. She even tries to flirt with his friend Piers Verderan in order to make Randal jealous, but that only makes both men angry. Why is Randal so aloof? Why is Sophie so insecure? Why is Sophie wondering whether Randal was forced into proposing after he compromised her? Even though everyone around can see how much Randal loves Sophie, his behaviour is making her unhappy.
Into the mix here we then have anonymous threatening letters, and an attempt on the life of Randal's brother, where Randal himself seems to have been the intended victim.
The book was readable, but problematic. It was unclear whether it was meant to be about Sophie and Randal or Beth and Marius, and as such neither couple got adequate attention. The dramatic plot, although it tied into the events in Lord Wraybourne's Betrothed, was a distraction; it would have been much more interesting to see if Sophie and Randal could have sorted out their problems without this outside intervention. And, unusually for Beverley's work (or has she just got better?), the book was riddled with grammatical errors and typos, such as words missing or printed twice.
All in all, her longer novels are much better than these early regencies - although Piers Verderan's story, Emily and the Dark Angel, is really excellent. It's almost worth buying The Stolen Bride to find out more about his background and reputation, as we do here.

The Stolen Bride by Jo Beverly Aug. 10 2010
By R. Church - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this book. I know the reviews have been mixed but I would recommend this book to anyone who is a Jo Beverly Fan. It was diverse in plot but that made it less predictable and harder to put down. Like any books in a saga format you will want to read the previous books to get the most enjoyment but it's not necessary.

One of Beverly's poorest efforts Oct. 14 2005
By S. Reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I really wanted to like this book since it contains so many familiar characters, especially Piers Verderan. However, the writing is sloppy is so many ways. There are numerous grammatical and typographical errors. There are far too many characters to keep up with. There are 2 sets of lovers and neither story is utterly compelling. In fact, the supposed primary set becomes the secondary set as the book continues. Beth is often the viewpoint character, but rarely the romantic heroine. And Sir Marius is simply not given enough depth. In addition, there are several scenes that are simply fluff and do nothing for the narrative or charatcer development. The entire scenario is far-fetched as well. One might want to read it for background on other characters, especially Verderan (from the excellent Emily & the Dark Angel), but it's not a buy or a keeper.
