9780060585037: The Ideal Bride (Cynster Novels)

Michael Anstruther-Wetherby is a man destined for power. Except that Michael, for all his political skill and intelligence, lacks the most important element of success: a wife.

So he goes searching for his ideal bride, a gently bred, well-managed young lady. Michael discovers such a paragon, but finds a formidable obstacle in his path, the young lady's beautiful, strong-minded aunt, Caroline Sutcliffe. Caro has lived through an unhappy political marriage, and wants nothing of the sort for her niece, especially as the young woman has already lost her heart to another.

Caro and the younger woman hatch a plot -- Caro will demonstrate why an inexperienced young lady is not the bride for him. In deflecting Michael's matrimonial attentions away from her niece, Caro unwittingly focuses them on herself. And then it is Michael's turn to be persuasive, a task that requires every ounce of his seductive charm.

A series of mysterious and dangerous accidents befall Caro -- it becomes clear that an assailant has stepped in with his or her own idea for Caro's future -- one that could even involve murder. Before Caro can become Michael's ideal bride, they must race to uncover the unknown's identity before all hope of what they long for, and wish for, is destroyed.

About the Author:

#1 New York Times bestselling author Stephanie Laurens began writing as an escape from the dry world of professional science, a hobby that quickly became a career. Her novels set in Regency England have captivated readers around the globe, making her one of the romance world's most beloved and popular authors.



Clare Higgins, the winner of a Tony® and two Olivier awards, has starred on London's West End and on Broadway; she has been lauded for her work with both the National Theatre and the RSC, in contemporary as well as classic plays.

From AudioFile:

In the latest in the Cynster family series, Michael Anstruther-Wetherby, brother-in-law of Devil Cynster, is searching for a bride. Anticipating a brilliant future in politics, Michael believes he has found the perfect bride in Caro Sutcliffe, the young widow of a diplomat. Clare Higgins ably differentiates characters. At the center of her capable narration is her portrayal of Caro. She is especially skilled at depicting the tone and tension of the relationship between Caro and Michael, highlighting his intention to woo her and her determination to never again marry. When Michael believes that Caro's life is in danger, the suspense heightens through animated dialogue. S.C.M. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
