The Bride Thief by Jacquie D'Alessandro


HAS ENGLANDÂ’S MOST INFAMOUS BRIDE THIEF FINALLY MET HIS MATCH?

At six-and-twenty, Samantha Briggeham knew her marital prospects were fading by the season and she was pleased by the thought. She had no intention of being betrothed. Especially against her will to a man she did not love. She had a plan...and didn't include being swept into a pair of powerful arms and spirited away by a masked rider. News of Sammie's heroic rescue from undesired wedlock turned her into the toast of the ton, wooed by suitors far and wide. But couldn't forget the swashbuckling brigand who abducted her. something about him intrigued her completely. Then she met Eric Landsdowne, the dashing and seductive Earl of Wesley.

His exploits were legendary, his life filled with danger. He was the elusive Bride Thief, who had his own reasons for helping young women escape the unhappy fate of arranged marriages, and whose true identity was a scrupulously guarded secret. But from the moment he rescued Sammie only to discover she already managed to get herself un-betrothed Eric knew he couldn't lose her a second time. Marriage was out of the question. Which left only one option: A clandestine affair that might lead to scandal, social ruin, and the unmasking of a love-bested legend. . .


I couldn't get into the story. It had promise too. But about 200 pages into it, I was thinking, "I really don't care what happens." So I peeked at the end and put it down.

Sammie seems like a sweet girl. Not your average girl into dancing and gossip. She likes science and math. (Ok, who likes math???? I hated math when I was school)

Eric is man who isdeterminedd to help young women out of forced marriages. His sister would forced into a marriage and itdevastatedd her.

Meh.
