"A very special romance"

Lady Glenys Spencer works hard at keeping her eccentric but harmless relatives safe, especially those who would enjoy a witch hunt. When the family resides in Wales, no one gives them a second thought, but the six months every year in London can be dangerous. Though she prefers her extended family remain at home when Glenys goes to London to manage the vast family finances, they all insist on accompanying her.

On this trip to the bank, her relatives provide her with strange items that include a warmer cloak than she planned on wearing and several magical items to protect her on her quest. Though thinking they are kind, benign, but a bit out of their minds, she appeases the brood by accepting everything. However, Glenys will soon be thanking her family as Kiernan Fitzallen kidnaps her. Kiernan does the crime when he learns the identity of Glenys' brother, a powerful knight. He escorts Glenys to his employer, Sir Anton Legasse, who plans to marry THE PRISONER BRIDE. However, neither Kiernan nor Anton counted on love blossoming between the abductor and the abductee.

THE PRISONER BRIDE is a magical fifteenth century romance that historical romance readers will find quite charming. The story line is exciting as the lead couple battles one another even as they fall in love with each other. The secondary cast adds villainy or amusingly loving eccentricity that provides a uniqueness to Susan Spencer Paul's sixth and final "Bride" tale. On a positive note for the audience is that descendants of some of the ensemble will star in a future Regency-based series.
