Liked the story line but was glad to get to the end of the book.25 November 2013 - Published on Amazon.com
I enjoyed reading this tale although I did find myself getting a bit angry with the heroine's 'back and forth' attitude with the lies, trust and wanting to depend on the H. I was really glad to get to the end of this book. Been a while since I've felt this way about a book. I have enjoyed many of Lyn Stone's books before this one.
Pleasantly surprised15 April 2013 - Published on Amazon.com
This was the first series I've read of Ms. Stone's and I was pleasantly surprised to find a new author to read. She writes well and her story lines are interesting. This was book 2 of a trilogy. Book 1 "Knight's Bride" and book 3 was "Highland Wife" (my favorite of the series).
Enjoyable romance14 April 2009 - Published on Amazon.com
The prequel, of sorts, to The Highland Wife, taking place when Rob is a child. Rob's widowed mother, Anne, is forced to marry the French Comte de Trouville. She resists him, not only because she has been traumatized by her abusive first husband, but because she is afraid that if Trouville discovers Rob is deaf, he will be disinherited. So she tries to hide Rob's deafness from him. Unlike most "big misunderstanding" plots, this is a legitimate fear: Trouville really does not intend to allow Rob to inherit the estate, and it's up to Anne to prove to him that her son could be a competent lord. The descriptions of Anne raising Rob and teaching him to speak and use a made-up sign language are compelling, and clearly based on the author's own experiences. It's not quite as good as The Highland Wife, but, the writing is engaging, and the characters are interesting.
I only wish it was longer27 September 1999 - Published on Amazon.com
Perfectionist Edouard Gillet has angered King Phillip so hedecides to lay low for a while in Scotland. He takes his young sonwith him who needs a mother figure to teach him the more genteel facets of life. Anne is for from perfect and she has a son many would view as 'the son of the devil' because he is deaf. Through a series of events they are married and fall in love, with Edouard admitting his love early and Anne holding off because she hasn't told him her son is deaf. Its nice to read a story where the hero and heroine are not the usual young and naive. Anne is in her late 20's and Edwouard is a little older. Of course both have their secrets and each is hurt when they discover that the other has been holding back on the other.

An Intelligently Written Story...13 March 2006 - Published on Amazon.com
Bride of Trouville was a refreshing change from the usual romance drivel. No purple prose here! The characters think and act realistically; I liked the way the story unfolded naturally, there seemed to be no gratuitous scenes. If I had any criticsm it would only be that I would have liked the loves scenes to be more detailed. That is the only reason I didn't give this book 5 stars. However, it is a minor quibble in view of how much I liked this book. I definitely recommend it.
