Abigail Nash leads a lonely existence. Her mother died giving birth to her, her father’s business dealings took him away more often than not, and her ailing great-aunt, unable to provide much in the way of companionship, was a lack-luster guardian at best. So when her dear friends offered to launch her into London society, it appeared Abby’s life was taking a turn for the better, with suitors and social engagements aplenty. When she marries a proclaimed darling of the ton, it seems she will at last settle into the life of her dreams.

But appearances aren’t always what they seem, and dreams often become disappointments.

Just months into her marriage, Abby finds herself widowed, penniless, increasing, and determined to never hope again. But when her late husband’s brother, the Earl of Brigston, attempts to thaw the numbness surrounding her heart, Abby must decide if she has it in her to risk another chance at happiness, knowing the odds are not in her favor.

I haven’t read a book by Rachael Anderson that I didn’t absolutely love and this awesome book didn’t fail to meet that grade. ~Vicki

Enjoyed reading this book. The characters, dialogue, and plotline kept me entertained. Highly recommend this book to those who enjoy clean romances. ~Michele

This is the first full-length novel I’ve read by Rachael Anderson, but it definitely won’t be the last. I really enjoyed the story–the writing was really good with no annoying parts or awkwardness, the plot was interesting, the characters were endearing (I loved the banter between Brigtson and Abby!), and this book was just really good. Highly enjoyable. Great choice for those who like clean, well-written Regency romances. ~AE2

This forbidden Regency romance was excellent! Once I started, it was hard—almost impossible—to put down. The characters—Abigail and Brigston—were super well done. I became invested in their lives, their troubles, their hearts really fast, and the author did a superb job of not letting me go. The plot twist was unique. ~Charissa

A lovely, well-written story. Highly recommended. ~Linda

I always enjoy Ms. Anderson’s books! This one is wonderful, filled with great story and characters. Beautiful story of love, family and forgiveness. ~Nichee

I can not praise this author’s books enough. I have loved every single one. I love the characters! I love the development of the romance! I love the story line. I love the fun dialogue. I know when I start one of her books I will have a hard time putting it down until I am done and then I am sad the book is over. I love that each story is unique. ~Nari

My Review

MY BROTHER'S BRIDE is a story of heartbreak, forgiveness, and redemption as a woman finds herself in a difficult circumstance and learns there are some men who will become heroes when given the chance. Sweet historical romance readers will find much to love here.

I really enjoyed the characters from this story. Abigail is a lady, but has an almost tomboyish way to her as she was left unsupervised much of her life. She's charming and rather entertaining. Brigston is a gentleman who prefers the country to London society and has a good head on his shoulders. He's steady, but has a wonderful sense of humor. They had some fun competition and banter between them. Abigail did come across sometimes as a little dramatic and petulant and Brigston's mother as a little stiff and judgmental, but it made their characters somewhat ideally flawed. The romance was interesting as it shed light on a law I wasn't aware of regarding brother-in-laws marrying their sister-in-laws, which added a unique twist on things. The ending was especially sweet.

In the end, was it what I wished for? This was overall an enjoyable sweet romance.

Content: A reference to a prior rape, but clean.
