Publisher's Summary

For six long years Thomas Moreland has dreamed of the beautiful young noblewoman who rescued him from death. While amassing his fortune in India, not a day passed he did not recall Felicity's fair loveliness, did not recall the silken tones of her sweet voice, did not desire to possess her.

Now a widow, Felicity Harrison does not recognize the handsome nabob as the young man left for dead by highwayman years earlier. Though she wants nothing more than to snub the arrogant man who promises to rescue her family from financial ruin in exchange for presenting his sister to Society, she cannot snub him. She must force herself to bear his company. But the longer she is with him, the more she has to force herself to remain true to her dead husband's memory. Why is it the humbly born Thomas Moreland possesses more nobility that any man of her class? And why is it she finds it harder and harder to mourn a dead man when Thomas's virility awakens her deepest desires?

    Story
    "His love was lasting, could they save each other?"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Bride Wore Blue to be better than the print version?

    This audio version was well read, I loved both print and audio versions. I love to listen to books, but I enjoy reading as well, I can not choose between the two versions, but I recommend you enjoy one of the two. This is a lovely book with characters that will endear themselves to you.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Bride Wore Blue?

    My most memorable moment was when Felicity finally discovers the whole truth, and opens her heart. She not only knows that her past actions have brought her to this point in her life, she embraces her future completely.


    Which character – as performed by Rosalind Ashford – was your favorite?

    My favorite character - as performed by the narrator is Thomas Moreland. He seemed to be performed as patient, calm and reasonable as she seemed to put a slow easy emphasis on his character, you could feel his thoughtfulness and caring for those around him.
    Thomas is someone you can endear yourself to, and trust in. His philanthropic nature and his care for others is warming, he shows great honor to others and civic duty.
    I did enjoy many of the other character performances; Carlotta seemed to purr at times, Glee seemed to sparkle and Felicity seemed to come to life as she moved past her grief.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I was most moved when Thomas called on George to request his help, in his pursuit to win Felicity's heart and hand, both men were humbled by their love and dedication for the women in their hearts had been given to. That moment made you think back to when George visited Thomas to request Dianna's hand.


    Any additional comments?

    The humanity and care you show in life, even to a stranger, can come back around when you need it most, bringing a renewal of life, love and truth.
    The Brides of Bath Series is one of my favorites. The characters show their great potential for growth in the first book, and do not disappoint int the rest of the series. I ;highly recommend this book and this series. Having read the series, I am enjoying the audio versions immensely.

    Story
    "Out of Mourning....Into True Love"
    What did you love best about The Bride Wore Blue?

    Everything. It's a fantastic tale of love a second time around. The characters are well-written, the historic details add to the story without bogging it down, and I just loved every minute of it.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Bride Wore Blue?

    The heroine descending the stairs in her blue gown, out of her widows weeds for the first time, much to the admiration of the hero


    Which scene was your favorite?

    So many things---I loved all of the interactions between the characters and the glimpses of life in Bath (and at the pump room).


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me laugh, it made me cry, it made me sigh dreamily. It made me run the gambit, for sure!


    Any additional comments?

    This is a wonderful series---I've read the entire thing and have now started listening to the Audiobooks now that they are available. Listening to them makes the stories that I loved all fresh and new and I have found myself falling in love with them (and their heroes) all over again.

    "Lovely"

    Cheryl Bolen writes the most wonderful books. To be able to listen to them as well is a huge added bonus. The narrator is great and I love listening to all the different character voices. I recommend both reading and listening to this book. You won't be disappointed!

    Any additional comments?

    This is book one in a series and I'm looking forward to hearing the rest, especially if they are read by the same talented narrator. She brought 19th century Bath and everyone there to life so vividly it was easy to picture the place and the people. Hope some of the supporting characters will be featured in the other books.

    "Entertaining"

    An entertaining book if a bit predictable.

    The narration was quite good. I won't go into a synopsis of the story. I think I liked the secondary characters better than I did the main two. The scene at the ruins was pretty rushed and I had to replay it because I missed what happened.

    All in all, an adequately enjoyable book.

    "Very entertaining :)"

    Loved the story , the narrators English accent helped to set the stage for this 1800 romance . The characters were lively and delightful . Loved the way the story has a prelude that set the stage for the story to unfold .

    "Good but disappointing in places"

    I loved this book until the sex scenes where such awkward description just didn't seem appropriate. Up till then it was a lovely light well written read.

    "narration is wanting"

    Difficult to listen to. very little differences in the characters voices. there is a cadence that is so constant that it is hard to tell when characters change or when narration starts.

    Any additional comments?

    This is a great book; this is the first book in the Brides of Bath series written by Cherly bolen and narrated by Rosalind Ashford. This book can be listened to in one sitting if you have the time, once I started listening to it I didn’t want to put it down until the end. Now a widow, Felicity Harrison does not recognize the handsome nabob as the young man left for dead by highwayman years earlier. Though she wants nothing more than to snub the arrogant man who promises to rescue her family from financial ruin in exchange for presenting his sister to Society, she cannot snub him. She must force herself to bear his company. This is a great book with a wonderful story and well developed characters. This book will keep you reading long into the night. This was such a great read and full of surprises.

    The narrator Rosalind Ashford did a great job with this book. She did a great job with the different voices of each character in this book. It was very easy to listen to in one sitting and I didn’t want to stop listening until the end.

    If you are looking for a great book with great characters then you need to listen to this book. I am looking forward to listening to the next book by this author and narrator.

    A Review copy was provided to me in exchange for a fair and honest review. The free book held no determination on my personal review.

    "Love, a second time around"

    This author deserves her achievement of the N.Y. Times best selling author. Her writing is that good.
    The characters have been well thought out. The places are described in picture-forming prose and the the story grips one so much that I found myself living alongside those descriptive words.
    I also enjoyed the narration. It was good.
    You can enjoy this exciting romance too!
