Dear Reader, In my Brides Trilogy, three unconventional young women vow never to marry, only-one by one-to be overtaken by destiny. Scholarly Olivia is most certainly The Least Likely Bride-- One moment Lady Olivia Granville is strolling along a path, her nose buried in a tome of Greek philosophy; the next she is plunging down a rocky cliff. When she regains consciousness, she is naked and unwittingly trapped on a pirate ship. Her captor, though, is no ordinary pirate. Wickedly handsome, disturbingly mysterious, the grey-eyed master of the Wind Dancer is both a physician and an artist, and admits to making his living from the sea. Most disconcerting of all, when he turns his glittering eyes on her, he sees not the stammering, hopelessly bookish young girl Olivia has always been, but a passionate, beautiful woman who can, if she chooses, embark on the adventure and the love of a lifetime. I invite you to share in Olivia's passionate, enchanting adventure. Warmest wishes, (signed)Jane Feather P.S. For Portia's story, be sure to read The Hostage Bride, and you will catch Phoebe's story in The Accidental Bride. And look for my next novel, The Window's Kiss, in early 2001-- in which my heroine has been widowed not less than four times! From the Paperback edition.

Jane Feather has won legions of fans with her irresistible romances that deftly blend mystery and intrigue with exquisitely passionate romance. Now the New York Times-bestselling author of The Least Likely Bride has penned another seductive tale, the unforgettable story of a beautiful noblewoman who has lost four husbands under mysterious circumstances, and the man who is sent to find out if she is an unlucky victim of fate -- or a black widow whose abundant charms hide a heart of ice.... As a lone and wealthy widow in Henry VIII's kingdom, Lady Guinevere Mallory knew that she was in a precarious position. But she never imagined that when danger arrived, it would be in the form of Hugh of Beaucaire, a man with the bluest eyes she'd ever seen. A man of such power and determination that when he rode up to Mallory Hall, intent on claiming a vast tract of her land, Guinevere couldn't suppress a frisson of fear ... or deny a shiver of anticipation. A seasoned soldier, Hugh had seen his share of battle and known his share of women. But nothing had prepared him for the reality of Guinevere -- a woman so elegant and alluring, with luminous eyes and hair the color of palest wheat. And when she smiled her damnable smile, so filled with invitation, Hugh found himself confused, aroused, and infuriated. For he suspected that the widow had committed the blackest of crimes. How else could a woman of eight and twenty have been so unfortunate as to bury four wealthy husbands? How else could she have managed to persuade each of them to sign a marriage contract she herself had drawn up -- documents that ensured she would inherit everything they owned upon their deaths? As Guinevere stalls for time, Hugh begins to investigate her mysterious and tarnished past. Yet even as they try to fathom each other's motives, temptation explodes into a consuming passion, clouding their minds to the coming peril. Whatever Hugh uncovers, he must escort Guinevere to London to face the king and the terrifying and ruthless power of the Lord Privy Seal. And if Guinevere is indeed charged with murder, Hugh knows there's only one way he can save her -- by taking the risk that he will become the next victim of the widow's kiss....

Lady Emma Beaumont and Lord Alasdair Chase were once inseparable childhood friends, then betrothed lovers. But something went dreadfully awry, and Emma left Alasdair practically at the altar.

In this enchanting trilogy from “an accomplished storyteller” of “rare and wonderful” romance (Los Angeles Daily News), three unconventional women vow never to marry—only to be overtaken, one at a time, by the exquisite pleasures of unexpected love. Now all three of Jane Feather’s novels are together in one delightful eBook bundle: THE HOSTAGE BRIDE It’s bad enough that Portia Worth is taken in by her uncle, the Marquis of Granville, after her father dies. But it truly adds insult to injury when the outlaw Rufus Decatur, the Granvilles’ archenemy, attempts to abduct the Marquis’s daughter—only to kidnap his bastard niece by accident. Portia, a misfit with the audacity to believe herself the equal of any man, does not take kindly to being abducted—mistakenly or otherwise. Decatur is in for the challenge of his life—both on the battlefield and in the bedroom. THE ACCIDENTAL BRIDE With her untidy hair, rumpled clothes, and ink-stained fingers, Phoebe Carlton isn’t the kind of woman men fall in love with. But after her older sister dies, she seems like a reasonable substitute to her sister’s husband, Cato, the Marquis of Granville. Only when Phoebe looks at Granville—really looks at him—does she fall disastrously in love. A cold-blooded engagement will be torture, knowing this darkly, breathtakingly attractive man would never love her. So Phoebe decides to try something different—a little change in wardrobe, a daring new attitude . . . and a bit of brazen seduction. THE LEAST LIKELY BRIDE One moment Lady Olivia Granville is strolling along, her nose buried in Greek philosophy; the next she’s plunging down a rocky cliff, only to regain consciousness on a pirate ship. Her captor, though, is no ordinary pirate. The wickedly handsome master of the Wind Dancer is a physician and an artist. And when he turns his glittering eyes on her, he sees not the bookish young girl Olivia has always been, but a passionate beauty ready to embark on the adventure—and the love—of a lifetime.

Dear Reader, In my "Brides" trilogy, three unconventional young women vow they will never marry--only to be overtaken by destiny. The Accidental Bride could only be the story of Phoebe, the "awkward" one.... For four years, Cato, the Marquis of Granville, had been just another man--the uninteresting, somewhat intimidating husband of Phoebe's older sister. But then her sister died, and Phoebe seemed a reasonable substitute. Her forced engagement to him should have been quite a cold-blooded arrangement...except that one day Phoebe looked at Granville--really looked at him--and saw what she'd never seen before: he was darkly, breathtakingly attractive. Once she'd noticed, she couldn't seem to stop noticing, and suddenly Phoebe was disastrously in love. It would be nothing short of torture to be married to Granville, knowing he didn't love her and never would. After all, Phoebe was not the kind of woman men fell in love with--Phoebe with her untidy hair, her rumpled clothes, and her fingers forever ink-stained from the poetry she wrote. When running away does not solve her problems, Phoebe decides to try something a little different--something that involves a little change in wardrobe, a daring new attitude, and a bit of brazen seduction. Granville is about to discover that his awkward Phoebe is woman enough even for him.... Warmest wishes, Jane Feather P.S. Be sure to watch for Olivia's story, The Least Likely Bride, coming in hardcover in early 2000. From the Paperback edition.
