The Gypsy Bride by Jerrica Knight-Catania
My Rating: Four Hearts
Spice Level: Two
Engaged to a reprehensible baron, Bianca Manning knows she must do something to escape her fate. She decides that a Romany camp is the last place her mad fiance would think to look for her.
The last thing Emilian Carrol needs is a spirited Englishwoman in his life, but he can’t seem to say no when she begs to hide out in his tribe’s camp.
Thomas Barclay, future Viscount Grantham, is bored to tears and looking for a distraction. When his old friend Baron Tisbury asks for help in tracking down his missing fiancee, Tom decides to make himself useful.
Caught between two worlds, Bianca must figure out which man holds the keys to her heart.
This one will pull at your heart and have you on the edge of your seat. From the start, it was clear that Tisbury was not someone any girl would want to marry and Bianca and her sisters had a good plan. I loved how instantly she was drawn to Emilian and wasn’t sure who she would end up with because Emil and Tom were both good men that would take care of her.
Bianca is not one to be controlled. I loved her as soon as she told Tisbury what might happen to him in the garden. She spoke her mind and didn’t hide her feelings from anyone. She was so torn between them and she struggled with the choice.
Emil was very much the gentleman and was willing to do anything to protect Bianca. His story was shocking and made my heart ache for him. I loved what he offered to her if she married him and how he was with his mother.
Tom was a gentleman too and knew what Tisbury was so he had his own plans. He set out to protect her and found himself wanting to be with her. He could break your heart too with how he gave up things for his family and his sister.
I can’t wait to read the next one and find out what happens.
