The Earl's Mistaken Bride

I love a good Regency romance, especially if it falls into the Christian fiction category, and I've found a new-to-me author that fills that niche rather nicely.

The author's name is Abby Gaines, and the book is The Earl's Mistaken Bride.

Marcus Brookstone, Earl of Spenford, has made a bargain with God. If God will heal his mother, Marcus will take a wife, and a daughter of the Parson Somerton will fill the bill nicely. Though they are beneath his lofty station in life, at least they have an impeccable pedigree, and the beautiful daughter he met in the stable yard fits the image of the type of Countess his pride demands.

But the girl he finds under the wedding veil at the end of the ceremony is NOT the beautiful daughter he planned to marry. He unwittingly married Constance. The stubborn, irritating, PLAIN daughter. If this was God's idea of a joke, Marcus wasn't laughing!

Marcus doesn't want love, it's messy and completely undignified, so as long as his new wife will remember her place, he'll swallow the bitter pill of a mistaken marriage for the sake of his mother. Unfortunately, Constance not only doesn't remember her place, she turns his world completely upside down by having the audacity to fall in love with him!

When a handsome stiff-necked, prideful Earl marries a plain, stubborn, opinionated Parson's daughter by mistake, his troubles are only beginning. In fact, he didn't even know how to spell trouble until he met Miss Somerton. But now he knows trouble is spelled with a capital C O N S T A N C E!

This book is out in stores now and of course available online. Grab a copy for yourself. It's an entertaining read with a great cast of chacters (I loved the sub-story line of Tom and Miriam!) and a not-too-subtle message about the ways pride can trip us all up.

If you like historicals, especially Regency historicals, check this one out. You'll be glad you did!
