Damaris Chance's unhappy past has turned her off the idea of marriage forever. But her guardian, Lady Beatrice Davenham, convinces her to make her coming out anyway - and have a season of carefree, uncomplicated fun.
When Damaris finds herself trapped in a compromising situation with the handsome rake Freddy Monkton-Coombes, she has no choice but to agree to wed him - as long as it's in name only. Her new husband seems to accept her terms, but Freddy has a plan of his own: To seduce his reluctant winter bride.
Will Damaris' secrets destroy her chance at true happiness? Or can Freddy help her cast off the shackles of the past, and yield to delicious temptation?

Dreadful Narration Pairing With Story

What would have made The Winter Bride better?

A narrator who could have brought a degree of gravitas to the story. This narrator's voice was light and childlike, very precious.


Would you ever listen to anything by Anne Gracie again?

No.


How could the performance have been better?

A different narrator, capable of a serious voice and able to perform male voices. This narrator made the story seem quite absurd and frivolous.

A Great! Great! Read.

What did you love best about The Winter Bride?

The story was great. It was very funny, but also very sad in places. I came away very satisfied. Book 1, The Autumn Bride was funny, but since you got more Freddie in Winter Bride, "It was the bomb".


What did you like best about this story?

In the time between writing the first and second book, Anne Gracie learned how to write a proper love scene. I was unhappy with Autumn Bride's badly written only one love scene.But, she got it right in Winter Bride. "Well done!"


Which character – as performed by Alison Larkin – was your favorite?

It was a toss up between Lady Bea and Freddie. But, Freddie had the bigger role. They got the best lines, but Flynn wasn't far behind. I thinking his story will be next.


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

I laughed throughout the story, but cried for both Demaris and Freddie, when their tragic pasts were revealed. I cheered when they came to each other defense. I was very happy to find an even happier ending in the Epilogue. I won't spoil it for you.


Any additional comments?

I am looking forward to the next book in the series. I only hope it doesn't take as long as between Book 1 and Book 2.
