Trapped at the Altar

Trapped at the Altar by Jane Feather

New York Times bestselling author Jane Feather introduces a sizzling new series that moves from the remote wilds of southwest England to the turbulent royal court, when a lovely young woman is forced into marriage in order to unite two families—and discovers a most unexpected passion. . .

Ariadne Carfax has vowed to be with the man she loves, Gabriel Fawcett. There’s just one obstacle. On his deathbed, Ari’s grandfather decrees that she marry her childhood friend Ivor Chalfont, thus forging a powerful alliance between the two warring families. Giving Ari no time to protest, the elders plan her wedding the next day, forcing her to follow through on the nuptials. Though she is fond of Ivor, Ari has no intention of consummating their marriage—until he kindles an intoxicating desire that she can’t ignore. Ivor has loved Ari for years, but he doesn’t want an unwilling wife. He wants Ari to ache with the same irresistible longing he feels. And if that’s the way to woo her into his bed and into their new life, he won’t rest until his new bride surrenders to true love.


3.0 out of 5 stars Drawn OutJuly 25, 2014
This review is from: Trapped at the Altar (Kindle Edition)
To be fully honest, this book bored me. I felt that Gabriel should have been the "Main Hero" in the story and not just the side character. He was made to be very important to the story. I would have rather more emphasis been made on Ivor and Ari, not Gabriel. I wasn't a fan of Ari. She really was spoiled and selfish. For a historical romance, I felt it dragged on. I'm used to long winded historical books. But this one, it just seemed to be too much pulling away from the Romance. It was a great idea for a book, I just don't feel it was done right. You don't want to put your readers to sleep! This book just really wasn't for me. It's not awful, hence the decent rating. It just wasn't enjoyable for me.
