Publisher's Summary

Dear Listener, Douglas Sherbrooke, Earl of Northcliffe, is a man besieged. He must have an heir. Thus he must first provide himself with the requisite bride. Alexandra Chambers, youngest daughter of the Duke of Beresford, has loved Douglas Sherbrooke since she was 15. Unfortunately, it is her sister, the incomparable Melissande, he wishes to wed. But life never ladles out what one expects, and Douglas finds himself wed to the wrong sister. If having an unwanted wife isn't enough, he is also plagued by The Virgin Bride, a ghost that is reputedly seen in the countess's bedchamber. Does the willowy phantom really appear to Douglas? Does she speak to him? I hope you enjoy listening to the exploits of Alexandra and Douglas as much as I enjoyed writing about them. You will see them again in The Hellion Bride. --Catherine Coulter

Critic Reviews

"Anne Flosnik seems to have a wonderful time with this romance, reading in staid, unemotional tones that fit Douglas's attitude about marriage. As hot-blooded Alex discovers lust that quickly turns to love, Flosnik's reading engages the listener right though to the luscious conclusion." ( AudioFile)

Slow Moving

What disappointed you about The Sherbrooke Bride?

I felt the story was extremely slow moving. I had not problem pausing this audio book and coming back to it a few days later.

What was most disappointing about Catherine Coulter’s story?

Personally I did not care the way the author portrayed the role of women. Even though Alexandra has occasional boughs of assertiveness they few and far between. Additionally I didn't care for the way the hero, Douglass, was portrayed either. I felt it was a little over the top on domineering. Last comment, for me the book contained too many sexual scenes.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Anne Flosnik?

Anne's performance was fine.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment definitely.

Any additional comments?

I listened to book 1 and 2 of this series and I'm done! I'll try a modern romance from Catherine Coulter before I give up on her completely.

Highly Entertaining Romance

Would you consider the audio edition of The Sherbrooke Bride to be better than the print version?

Not sure - didn't read the printed version

What other book might you compare The Sherbrooke Bride to and why?

I think they all are the same somewhat - but this was an entertaining story.

What about Anne Flosnik’s performance did you like?

It took some time to get used to her male voice - I wasn't to happy about those but otherwise I love the performance.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes.
