I read, or better, I tried to read this book on a dare from my sister. Why, oh why, did she do this to me??? She yelled at the shock and pain of it.
She hit him with her fists, shoving against him, trying to throw him off her, but it only sent him deeper and he kept driving, feeling her flesh convulse around him, driving him and catherinr him, and he couldn’t stop himself. He heard her cries but he didn’t slow, he couldn’t, and again he cl I read, or better, I tried to read this book on a dare from my sister.
He heard her cries but he didn’t slow, he couldn’t, and again he tye, raw groans ripping from his throat. He was flat on top of her again, breathing hard, wondering what the devil had come over him. The worst thing is, the stupid heroine jumps to the craptastic hero’s defense when her brothers burst into the bedroom in response to her screams and cries of pain. I couldn’t keep reading after that. View all 22 comments.
I have been on a re-read kick and this is another re-read of Catherine Coulter for me. She has a distinct style: I have read many of her books in my youth and did not grow up to think it’s o I have been on a re-read kick and this is another re-read of Catherine Coulter for ccatherine. I have read many of her books in my youth and did not grow up to think it’s ok to force sex on anyone so I really think the argunent: It’s a novel and should be read knowing that such wild fantasies serve an entertaining purpose, not educational.
It is like blaming video games for violence. The real problem is people’s inablility to separate fantasy from reality. Not the medium itself. I read novels from Catherine Coulter and it does not mean Coluter think it is ok for any man to “behave thusly”. I am getting carried away, I realize that.
The heiress bride / Catherine Coulter – Details – Trove
It is just novels from Coulter usually offend our 21st century sensibilities. I understand some people find such plots hard to digest. But I still think the real culprit is not books, but what we do with the ideas the books present us. If the books are to blame why don’t we all get rid of snow white too? We should not encourage our little girls to just sit around and wait for her Prince on the white horse to rescue her. How offensive an idea for modern females! OK enough of that. The Heiress Bride is probably the most coherent story in the original Sherbrooke trilogy.
Joan I also do not like her nickname and I refuse to use it lol really is a nut job and I just don’t like her very much. Things she does and says make my skin crawl. I pity Colin to have married such a woman. I find that writers often write such a female character: She takes great pride in it and does not care much for her femininity. If we readers are lucky she at least wears dresses, not breeches.
She is an “almost spinster” because her lovingly protective brothers, who are assholes to every other woman, allow her to act like an idiotic heiress that she is. But when she sees the man she wants, she goes all helress, jumps him, dares him, throws herself at him, does all kinds of outrageous things to “win his heart”.
She met the hero Colin at a party and immediately decided this is the man she was going to cathfrine what?? Then she went around suggesting to Colin that she had money that he needed so he would do well to marry her as soon as possible what??
Colin, being appalled at such outrageous behaviors from Joan but desparately for funds, went along. Joan had a horrible “wedding night” because all Coulter heroines have to suffer somd kind of sexual mistreatment to make the heros feel very guilty.
Then he left her alone in his castle with his bridw children from the first marriage, who he neglected to tell Joan, an evil aunt and a sister-in-law who obviously has a thing for Colin. Someone wanted to kill Colin and therefore Joan was in danger too. Then Joan was left to her own devices to battle with the children, the aunt and the sister-in-law and Colin’s assumed mortal enemy, who incidentally, is not the real villain. The story continues so on and so forth. I feel that the plots are rather irrelevant in this book.
It is how the characters interact with each other that is on center stage. Joan’s brothers and sisters-in-law play an important role.
The Heiress Bride by Catherine Coulter – FictionDB
I have to say for a Coulter book, the sex part is extremely down-played in The Heiress Bride. I am always amazed by how I get coulteer a Coulter book. Her stories and characters are very often bitter pills to swallow. Let’s just say it is not for the faint-hearted. I wince and grimace and close my eyes in disblief, but I read on. Her stories are often ridiculous, her characters outrageous. It is usually difficult for me to read a book if I dislike a character intensely.
But never in a Coulter book. Couler is like watching a horror film. You know it will scare the hell out of you, but your eyes are glued to the screen. Or you steal a few looks through the spaces between your cathherine I do thatas if minimized exposure would beide the horror. I think I have blabbered enough about this book. I cannot recommend the book but I know I have read the Sherbrooke trilogy multiple times and will probably return to them at a later time.
I have them in paperback and now in kindle version.

This book was originally intended to close Catherine Coulter’s Brides Series. The first three novels in what later became a much longer series featured a set of siblings, thr with their own happily-ever-after.
To be honest, I had some problems with the first two books. I thought the heroines took too much, the heroes dished out too much, and the resolutions were poorly crafted.
I probably shouldn’t have eve D N F I made it to fifty percent, and let me tell you – that was one hell of a struggle. I probably shouldn’t have even opened this one, but I couldn’t help myself. I was excited to meet Colin, mistakenly assuming the author would create a NICE hero for once, one who would appreciate this delightful girl.
Instead, I’m looking back at the first two books and wondering why I thought Ryder and Douglas were that bad.
Because he’s hot, Sinjun who has only glimpsed this man twice and never spoken with him decides to sacrifice herself on the altar of lust. With a historical, you kind of expect the guy to be a jerk at first.
