Publisher's Summary

From nationally best-selling author Rebecca Hagan Lee comes a romance set in England during the 1790s. The Earl of Weymouth insists his son marry before going off to fight the French. Lady Tressingham insists her daughter marry as soon as possible as well. The children, however, are very resistant to the institution of marriage. But they do wed as a matter of convenience. When Griffen returns from war, though, he's a different man than before, and he hopes he can prove his love to Alyssa, the woman he left when she was barely a bride. Narrator Virginia Leishman's tangy performance is perfect for this intimate and steamy tale. Lee's story abut the triumph of love will entertain and delight.

Nice book, strange narrator

This is an interesting and entertaining historical romance. Some parts are a little over-detailed, but overall the book is enjoyable. The narrator, on the other hand, though compentent with a good voice and accent, is SUCKING on something and making awful wet noises throughout the whole book! It's very distracting and I can't believe she was allowed to suck on candy (or her dentures?) during the whole reading. I can't believe this wasn't edited out or corrected. It's just disgusting. I could still enjoy the book, but everytime there's a silence you hear this gruesome sucking noise. Gah. I would like more choice for unabridged historical romances, and would definitely try another work by this author. I will skip this narrator though. Ick.

Wonderful Love Story!

If you love Pride and Prejudice, you will love Barely a Bride. It is a wonderful 19th century romance that will keep your attention from start to finish. Be forewarned that there are many racy sexual parts, with almost nothing left for the imagination! I found myself at times having to manually close my mouth, or look around to make sure no one else heard what I was listening to. I would describe this book as Pride and Prejudice with lots of sex! Have fun!
