Westminster, Maryland, U.S.A.: Bantam Books, 1998. Very Good/No Jacket as Issued. Dear Reader, Here is the first of my new "Brides" trilogy, in which three unconventional young women vow they will never marry-only to be overtaken by destiny. Bride # 1 is the outspoken Portia .... It's had enough that seventeen-year-old Portia Worth is taken in by her uncle, the marquis of Granville, after her father dies. As the bastard niece, Portia knows she can expect little beyond a roof over her head and a place at the table. But it truly adds insult to injury when the Granvilles' archenemy, the outlaw Rufus Decatur, hatches a scheme to abduct the marquis's daughter-only to kidnap Portia by accident. Portia, who possesses more than a streak of independence as well as a talent for resistance, does not take kindly to being abducted mistakenly or otherwise. Decatur will soon find himself facing the challenge of his life, both on the battlefield and in the bedroom, as he contends with this misfit of a girl who has the audacity to believe herself the equal of any man .... Warmest wishes, P. S. Phoebe, the "awkward" one, will be next, in The Accidental Bride. Watch for it in the summer of 1999. But first, look for A Valentine for Emma next January-a special treat just in time for Valentine's Day! Carrying Portia in his arms ... Rufus flung open the door to a chamber at the very end of the gallery, stepped inside, and kicked it shut. He set the candelabra on the mantel, the flagon on a small round table, and with a flourish unwound his trophy, setting her on her feet. "I won," Portia said breathlessly, pushing her hair out of her eyes. "A moot point," Rufus said, catching her chin on the palm of his hand. He kissed her mouth, his lips hard and yet pliant, his beard silky against her skin. Portia kissed him back with a fervor that matched the beat of her blood. She was aware of nothing now except the thrilling of her blood, the scent of his skin, the feel of his mouth against hers, the taste of wine on his tongue and hers. His hands ran down her body and she rose on tiptoe, her arms sliding around his neck as she leaned into the caress. Rufus laughed softly against her mouth ...

Prolific Jane Feather launches another lively trilogy, this one set during the English Civil War (mid-17th century) and featuring the first of three misfit girls who pledge their friendship and mutual distrust of men. Portia Worth, a bastard offshoot now dependent on the marquis of Granville for support, is mistaken for Granville's daughter and accidentally abducted by Rufus Decatur, Granville's archenemy and leader of a militia group whose purpose is to support the king against Parliament and avenge the wrong done to Rufus's family years ago. Both outcasts, Portia and Rufus develop a mutual understanding and admiration that blossoms into heartfelt passion. But Rufus's need for revenge puts Portia precariously on the opposite side of a battle he's determined to see through to the death. Readers will love the well-drawn characters, both major and minor; action scenes that move swiftly and vividly; and Portia's humorous plot to vanquish a particularly vile male villain, which may leave readers laughing out loud. An especially appealing tale that's sure to raise anticipation for the next book in the Brides series. --Ellen Edwards fiction,historical,historical fiction,literature and fiction,romance Historical Fiction, Bantam
