Book Description

2001 Harlequin Historical (Book 12)
Lady Elizabeth Perronet is given a choice: stay in the convent for the rest of her life enduring misery and deprivation at the hands of a woman who abhors her, or take her wayward cousin's place and marry the infamous Lord Kirkheathe. Elizabeth has never had an easier decision to make in her life, and not even the first meeting with the intimidating, silent nobleman can dissuade her from her chosen course.

Marrying for money and to produce an heir, Lord Kirkheathe trusts no one, and no woman most of all -- until Elizabeth Perronet forces her way into his lonely life, rekindling the embers of emotions he thought forever torn from his heart.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bought this book for Kirkheath -- reread it for Elizabeth! April 29 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
How could I resist a book with such a great title and a hero I've been waiting to meet ever since Genevieve Perronet jilted him in The Welshman's Bride? When he spoke in that sexy rasping whisper at the end of the first chapter, I knew Lord Kirkheath had been worth the wait! The first of many wonderful surprises in this book was how much I came to love the heroine, Elizabeth. After her childhood in a nunnery that would make Oliver Twist's orphanage look like Disney World, Elizabeth believes she's homely, and her aspirations are touchingly modest. Her severe upbringing has made her sympathetic to anyone in need, and very astute in judging people. These gifts help her see past Kirkheath's dark, brooding facade to the wounded man badly betrayed by love. I don't want to give away the plot because I found myself surprised again and again. Considering the amount of historical romance I read, that's no easy feat. I've been a fan of Margaret Moore for quite awhile. She's written almost a dozen books in the Warrior series, each with its own special spin. The Overlord's Bride is definitely my favourite...so far.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fast paced and fun! May 11 2001
By Elena Oppedisano - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I love the type of romances where the hero/heroine marry early and spend most of the novel learning what makes each other tick. This book delivers just that. It was a light, fun, fast paced read that I polished off in several hours. I loved Elizabeth - although convent bound for 13 years she's extremely clever (a trait honed from years of trying to outwit the Mother Superior). She's good hearted, humble and patient and, although she knows her marriage is only for alliance and an heir, she doesn't blink twice because its better than the convent. But she secretly hopes that her mysterious, untrusting husband will eventually come to love her. Raymond captured my heart as well (especially with that raspy voice!) He had his reasons to distrust women (after all, his first wife tried to strangle him) but deep down inside longs for love and a child. And of course, you've got to throw in the wicked former brother-in-law to try to destroy the two newlyweds to assuage his own years of pain. I really like Margaret Moore - all of her books are fast paced page turners that eliminates all the drivelly, excessive details and complicated plots and twists and instead focuses on the characters and their development and interaction with each other. This book was a true joy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another wonderful Medieval romance by Margaret Moore. May 25 2002
By Rebecca Herman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
After thirteen years in a convent, where she was starved and beaten, Elizabeth Perronet will do just about anything to escape. When her cousin Genevieve breaks her betrothal to run off with another man, Elizabeth's uncle comes to the convent and offers Elizabeth an ultimatum. Elizabeth must marry the man Genevieve was promised to, or spend the rest of her life in the convent. Elizabeth quickly agrees the marriage, even though she has never met Raymond D'Estienne, Genevieve's former betrothed. Elizabeth doesn't expect to find love in marriage, but longs for children and hopes to find happiness as a mother. Raymond is not looking for love either. His first wife betrayed him, and he is only remarrying to provide an heir. I really enjoyed this love story about two people who don't expect much from marriage finding out just how wonderful love can be. Margaret Moore is becoming one of my favorite historical romance writers. I'll definitely be reading all her books.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Perfect Romance Aug. 11 2001
By Tam Wilson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The Overlord's Bride was my first book to read by Margaret Moore, but not my last. The storyline was excellent. The characters' relationship flows from the beginning until the end with a beautiful love story. There is no jealous suitor or spiteful ex-girlfriend stirring up trouble. This book is totally about a man and woman healing each other's hearts and becoming one forever.

4.0 out of 5 stars Margaret Moore's best book so far June 18 2001
By Elaine Davis - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
But if you want a lot of detail or description this isn't the book for you. It easily could have been a 100 pages longer. I did like the fact that there was no 'fallings out' between the hero and heroine. The were a team against any forces rising against them. If you want a one day fun read, with no boring parts, this is a good book for you.
