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.

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

When James sees Corrie in a dress he first needs to recover from the shock that she has breasts before he can catch his breath as she is beautiful. Meanwhile Jason races home after a visit from the Virgin Ghost that warns him that his beloved parents are in trouble, which proves prophetic when someone shoots their father. As they try to keep dear old dad safe, James falls in love with Corrie who loves him back and Jason falls in love with Judith McCrae who he met at a gala. However, the family remains unsafe as someone wants Douglas dead and the plan is a perfect snake in Eden scheme.
This is an exciting late Regency romance starring two fabulous antagonists who turn into loving protagonists though his early on spanking of her seems inappropriate. The story line starts off like a typical sub-genre entry, but turns into a terse suspense once the first attack occurs and goes even tauter when treachery places the family and Corrie in danger. Catherine Coulter has provided a wonderful tale that hopefully will lead to a fabulous sequel.
Unfortunately the story between James and his annoying neighbor, Corrie is left as a backburner while the plot against Douglas takes front seat. IT is so annoying!! I already read the Sherbrook Bride! I know that they end up happinly ever after! I dont need to know that they have a love life 27 years after they've married all I wanted to know was how James and COrrie come to fall in love. The middle part of the book is great Ms. Coulter picks up steam after a hum-hum beginning and the action that occurs in the middle is great, I won't spoil it for you but let's just say that Corrie and James were in for the ride of their lives. But then once again Douglas and Alex step in an act as overly affectionate parents towards their children, it made me want to step in and tell them to BUG OFF!!
All in all I think that Corrie and James story couldve been something great (even if their story sounded a bit too much like THe Valentine legacy storyline) but with the constant remnicsing of the past by Alex and Douglas their story wasnt fully able to stand on its own without being overshadowed by the parents.
I know I whined quite a bit about the story but I cannot wait til next year whenever Jason's story is released (it just has to!). Hopefully Ms. Coulter will write a novel about the mysterious "vampire" Devlin as well. Both men were left as loose ends and left me rather intrigued.

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.Published on July 7 2004 by Katrina Carmack
