Product description

Product Description

Sadly ever after . . . unless some dreams really do come true?
 
Elinor Burkenstock never believed in fairy tales. Sure, she’s always been a fool for love—what woman isn’t? But Elinor knows the difference between fiction and truth. Daydreams and reality. True love and false promises. . . . Until the unthinkable happens, and Elinor’s engagement is suddenly terminated and no one, least of all her fiancé, will tell her why.
 
Sir Michael Rollins’s war-hero days seem far behind him when, after one last hurrah before his wedding, he gets shot and his injuries leave him in dire shape. He wants nothing more than to marry Elinor, the woman of his wildest dreams. But Elinor’s father forbids it . . . and soon Michael is faced with a desperate choice: Spare Elinor a life with a broken man or risk everything to win her heart—until death do they part?

All her life, Elinor Burkenstock has been groomed to be Sir Michael Rollins’ wife. She loves him deeply and when he takes one last mission right before their wedding, the unthinkable happens. Torn between grief and fury, Elinor confronts Michael and demands to know why he’s broken off their engagement. When he tells her the truth, she doesn’t faint or shied away from him. She gets angry with him and ironically, he discovers Elinor is the woman of his wicked dreams: passionate, intelligent and fiery.

Michael can’t stop thinking about Elinor and the things she said in anger. The more he thinks about it, the more he realizes that he loves her even more than he did before the ghastly mission. With the help of his friends, he concocts a plan to win her back. Just as he has done so (or so he thinks), she is kidnapped by a crazed man claiming to be Duke of the lands bestowed to Michael by the King. Will Michael move heaven and earth to save her or will he be too late?

I loved this book so much that I read it in one sitting. I couldn’t put it down and not even my husband could veer me away from Elinor and Michael. I first met both Elinor and Michael in Tainted Bride so I had high expectations for this book. It surpassed my expectations by a hundred-fold.

Fenichel took me on a breathtaking romance adventure and I wasn’t disappointed. There’s depth to these characters that I find refreshing. There’s serious issues that both Elinor and Michael must overcome if they are going to make it as a couple. But there’s plenty of humorous moments, too.

While this is book two in the Forever Brides series, this is a standalone and can be read apart from Tainted Bride. Although, I highly recommend reading that one, too.

Foolish Bride by A.S. Fenichel ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

The Foolish Bride was an amazing read! It made me mad in spots; it made me cry and laugh. It is a historical romance that can be read as a standalone.

The romance between Lady Elinore and the Duke of Kerurghe through out the book was priceless.  But the way her father stepped in between them was ruthless.  It made the book exciting to read and hard to put down. The characters were very well developed.  I loved the characters and the storyline.

This is the first book have  read of A.S. Fenichel. I would definitely read more of her books!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Regency Romance! March 28 2017
By Janice Hougland - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I really “got into” this story and felt it deeply. My only problem is the title because I do not think Elinor was a foolish bride at all. On the contrary, I think she was very, very smart (albeit perhaps unwittingly). I liked her strength in fighting the foolish system of parental involvement in pairing brides with bridegrooms and the foolish, tonnish gossip which guided the rules for women and men during the Regency era. At first I had less admiration for the hero, Michael, for his following all of the tonnish strictures about what is important and what is not relating to following his heart and his own instincts about Eloisa. I applauded when he “saw the light” and admired Elinor’s strength and fell in love with her all over again but for better reasons than before. I won’t give anything away with this review so I will just say that I really enjoyed this Regency romance and now want to read the rest of this series and this author’s back list.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great romantic story of Elinor and Sir Michael April 21 2017
By Valerie R. Macaluso - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Elinor Burkenstock seems to an empty head marriage minded young girl, but she falls in a scandal for kissing the war hero, Sir Michael Rollins. Michael then disappears after the scandal hits the paper. Elinor ever is loyal and rejects the new candidates for her marriage. She gets engaged with Michael and then Michael comes home after the last war assignment. Michael is wounded and his ability to have an heir is questioned by his doctor. Elinor' s father withdraws the marriage. Then we see Elinor slowly grows her backbone and her maturity.
I really enjoyed this evolution of this relationship and both Michael and Elinor growth to be their own maturity.
3.0 out of 5 stars Don't give up on true love July 20 2017
By Nancy Levine "Nancy" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Hmmm...this one...I would give it 3 1/2 stars. I loved the cover--Michael looks like Michael Mahonen from the old "Avonlea" TV series. I loved that Elinor changed throughout the book and stood up to her parents and that she never gave up on Michael no matter what. Michael loved her, but kept it hidden because he felt he couldn't be a proper husband to her. I loved the scenes with his younger brothers. And I loved that Elinor and Michael's friends stood by them no matter what. Middleton was a great guy--I hope there is a lady for him.

There were a lot of typos (canopies instead of canapes and meddle instead of mettle, etc.) and editing mistakes. Also some modern expressions like "Okay" didn't fit with the language for the time period.

I am in love again. What a fabulous romance. Ups and downs as usual – however a good author makes the up-and-down's into reality. At one point I thought oh nodash we're going to go back to she loves him she loves him that. How wrong I was. And wonderful twist with of course a wonderful ending

4.0 out of 5 stars ARC REVIEW Elinor and MIchael together at last??? April 20 2017
By HannahPilar - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The second of A.S. Fenchel's Forever Bride series Foolish Bride takes up where the first one left with the continuation of Elinor and Michael lover story. In the first book we met Elinor and Michael a star-crossed romance who had some issues as a side story. In the first book we see Elinor as a sweet young woman with a gentle disposition but as the book goes on and she realizes that she is going to stop trying to please everyone she shows her family and friends she is quick witted and has quite a temper. Michael was a bit of a let down he was to broody and a little bit pitiful, thank goodness Elinor is there.

Michael inherited a failing estate and he wanted to prove to everyone that he wasn't marrying Elinor for her dowry and prove to Elinor and her Parents he was worthy of her. Michael was a soldier who started to work for the home office but during his last mission he was gravely injured and the rumors that he was less than a man because of them gave Elinor's father cause to break the engagment. Elinor fought tooth and nail against her father because of this so she snuck out to talk to Michael herself but Michael angry at himself for getting injured and his body failing him but also because Elinor's father said she agreed to cancel the wedding and even when she shows up to confront him to ask if this is what he really wants he turns her away.

Elinor gets angry at everyone even her closest friends and even when that anger has passed she is still angry with Michael and her parents. Elinor decides to attend her best friend's house party and while there she again a man her mother foisted on her Middleton. Even though she is still mad at Michael she still loves him but still unsure of their future together she strikes up a friendship with Middleton, who soon becomes smitten with her. Michael now faced with the prospect of losing Elinor forever has to convince Elinor he does and always will love her.

Overall, this was a really sweet book. I'm not one for love triangles but this barely registers as one. A.S Fenichel does well with the character development and the active setting. The romance was nice but out of all of it I loved Elinor and seeing the change she went through and how Michael just ended up loving her even more for it.
