One thought on “Harper's Bride

  1. Pepa

    Imposible no sentirte afectada por esta dura historia de una mujer maltratada y del crecimiento de su personaje Es un t pico ya la novela de la mujer vejada que se enamora de su salvador Pero sigue funcionandoHe disfrutado mucho de la ambientaci n de la novela, esa vida dura de las tierras a los que llegaron los buscadores de oro.El estilo de la autora es muy visual y realmente te acerca muy bien a su forma de vida y sus calles llenas de barro.Dylan es un amor y la historia entre ambos de las qu [...]

    Really loved it it encompasses some of my favorite themes fake temporary marriage of convenience, starchy hero comes undone, damaged souls find solace and peace in each otherese are some of the reasons I love romance novels Melissa Logan and her baby, Jenny, are sold off as payment for a debt Melissa s abusive husband cannot afford to pay As the owner of a trading post in the Gold Rush Yukon, Dylan Harper didn t want a wife and child he wanted his money But when he saw the terrified look in Meli [...]

    I picked this up for a song from Smashwords after seeing it on the Smart Bitches blog and I m glad I did It was a charming western historical romance with two damaged souls I couldn t help but root for.After a grueling trip through the cold to reach the Yukon, giving birth in a tent along the way, Melissa Logan is almost speechless at the latest affront to her dignity To settle a large debt with a store, her husband offers his wife and child as payment to the owner, Dylan Harper Although she wou [...]

    I recently wrote a review for a book in which I stated the following It definitely isn t one of those stories where the characters aren t communicating merely because the author can t think of a better way to drag out the story This book is one of those stories Melissa I m really starting to have feelings for Dylan, but he won t want to be with me I m not part of his plan Dylan I think I might be in love with Melissa, but she s made it clear she doesn t want another man in her life Melissa I thi [...]

    More like 2.5 stars I don t know Maybe three stars This started out well for me I enjoyed the premise and setting However, as the story progressed I just go SO TIRED of it There is too much self reflection going on by the MC s A whole lot of whoa is me, I ve been so disappointed by love type of thing, over and over again Bleh Then, the first sex scene didn t occur until almost the end of the book, and by then I didn t even care any I was so tired of these two characters Plus, the sex scene was p [...]

    This is my first book by Alexis Harrington and it wont be my last I find myself drawn to Western Romance books from time to time I guess for me they re like that old blanket that just gives you the warm comfortable feeling It s truly a gem to find one this good That doesn t downplay the time period for the sake of the romance.In Harpers Bride we meet Melissa and her daughter Jenny, her husband like her father is abusive and this systematic abuse from childhood has turned Melissa into a meek woma [...]

    I really enjoyed Dylan and Melissa s story For some stupid reason I kept reading Marissa instead of Melissa.

  8. Jenn

    I really loved A Taste Of Heaven by this author however, I was disappointed with this story It started off great It had a great premise however, it just didn t fully deliver for me The couple did way too much of the I want you but can t have you the ENTIRE book That made me lose love and interest for the book however, I did finish it It also had too many death conveniences to make the story pan out, for my tastes.My favorite character in this whole book was Rafe Too bad there won t be any storie [...]

    It s kind of odd rereading a book years after reading it the first time Back in the 90 s when I originally read these books, this was my favourite book But now, so far anyway, this one has been replaced by Desperate Hearts, the Homeward Hearts That s not to say that I m not thoroughly enjoying this one I am it s just not at the top now.This book takes place somewhere towards the end of the Yukon Gold Rush Dylan Harper and Melissa Logan meet when Melissa s good for nothing husband tries to trade [...]

    Yukon territory during the gold rush Melissa s husband Coy Logan owes money to Dylan Harper and gives Melissa to him to settle his debt Dylan, seeing the abuse on her face and the baby in her arms, agrees Very heart wrenching at times but not as dark as it could have been Likable characters and moved at a good pace.

  12. Barb Manning

    Indebted scoundrel Coy Logan offers his wife, Melissa and their new baby daughter, Jenny as payment for a 1,200 debt his to Dylan Harper, a work hardened shop owner Melissa looks upon the transaction with horror and resignation, while Dylan sees the deal as a burden he must accept to keep Melissa and Jenny from ending up in worse straits.Harper s Bride, originally published in 1997 and re released for Kindle, is a charming story about two people trapped in a situation neither wants Stranded in D [...]

    I learned many things about the Yukon goldrush The writer wrote it so vividly I could see the town in my mind as I read the story The hero, Dylan is the sweetest most understanding man The heroine, Melissa was a very timid, battered young woman She blossomed under Dylan s care.The story starts with Melissa s horrible no good husband selling her and their sweet baby girl, Jenny to Dylan for his bill he ran up in Dylan s store Dylans afraid if he doesn t take them someone far worse would Dylan doe [...]

  14. Karen

    Melissa Logan married to escape abuse, got far worse in the bargain Melissa s luck changed when her husband sold her Dylan Harper in saving a woman gradually looses his bitterness but he may not learn to value his gift in time.It is a tale of quiet dignity and opening a window to a world where woman can be treated with respect even if unwillingly thrust upon a man Also a different perspective of life in a gold rush town.

    This is yet another book I bought based on a review at Smart Bitches, Trashy Books Seriously, a great resource for the returning romance reader who doesn t know where to start I really, really enjoyed this book It doesn t get five stars because it s not perfect, but it s really, really good It s set in the Yukon of the Klondike Gold Rush, which is an unusual choice in a historical, in my experience the glittering Regency being much in the common way And the setting is so real, so palpable, it s [...]

  18. Linda

    Alexis Harrington writes romances with characters that carry baggage of some sort Family members are usually the villains or villainesses HARPER S BRIDE is no different.Physically abused by her father, Melissa thought she might better herself if she married Coy Logan Too soon, she learned he was no different Like the male members of her family, Coy drinks heavily and continues the cycle of abuse The one saving grace from her short marriage is her sweet infant daughter, Jenny With little self res [...]

  19. Suzanne Barrett

    Harper s Bride by Alexis Harrington kept me riveted I finished it in two sittings.This is the Kindle edition, newly released for only 2.99, and worth every penny.Set in Dawson Yukon Territory during the gold rush of 1897, it is the story of two damaged people.Melissa Logan, married to drunken Coy Logan, has a small baby and not much to look forward to in life Logan, a shiftless, ne er do well, sells his wife and daughter to pay his mercantile debt to Dylan Harper Harper, an honorable man, is tal [...]

    In 1898 Melissa and her baby daughter are sold to Dylan, a store owner in Dawson in the Yukon Territory, by her no good husband to pay off a debt Dylan doesn t want anything to do with her, but he fears that if he doesn t take her, someone worse will The course of this novel is fairly predictable, but Ms Harrington executes the story very well I loved to watch Melissa blossom and grow strong under Dylan s care And part of it takes place in Portland, where I live, so that is an extra bonus for me [...]

    As somebody else has already said it has great premises but it doesn t deliver Emotional connection between H and h is non existing.

  22. Jane

    I have recently become a fan of Alexis Harrington Okay I have only read a couple of her books but already she is an auto buy for me.Harper s Bride is an unusual love story Melissa is sold to Dylan Harper to pay her husband s debt Dylan doesn t want a wife but decides that he wouldn t mind the domestic duties she can perform Melissa is determined she will pay off her husband s debt and then will never be dependent on another man again.Melissa has a wonderful independent spirit without being will [...]

    I bought this for my Sony Reader I always wonder about a book when the print version shows 300 some pages and the ebook was just 188 Am I missing something I liked the book There was a lot of information about the Klondike gold rush I always appreciate authors who have done their historical research The heroine was a nice character who grew and came out of her shell after getting sold to the hero He was a decent guy but his characterization was lacking just a bit I guess I didn t get quite as cl [...]

  24. Kay

    This is my 2nd Harrington book and I really enjoyed it Usually, when I pick up a western romance, it s about a cattle drive, living on a ranch, cowboys, outlaws, or travelling on a wagon train through the American Frontier With Harper s Bride, it was quite refreshing since the hero owns a trade store and the setting is in Dawson City, Canada during the Yukon Gold Rush The author painted a good picture of how greedy people would give up everything to search for gold but to only come up empty hand [...]

  25. Laura (Kyahgirl)

    3 5 3 stars B Harper s Bride is a story set in the decline of the Dawson city gold rush The author gave a good sense of the feel of the city the energy, the darkness, the potential and the disappointments I liked the character Melissa very much and enjoyed seeing her succeed She had a lot of backbone and determination view spoiler I liked Dylan Harper too but got a bit tired of his stubborn grip on his disillusionment and bitterness about his former fiance It went on so long that, for me, his ch [...]

  26. Liriom

    3.5 5El libro me ha gustado bastante, pero la historia me ha resultado en momentos demasiado lenta la traducci n al espa ol, un tanto precaria en ocasiones, ha contribuido a ello.Es una historia muy emotiva, dulce y bonita.Las segundas oportunidades, la fuerza para superarse asi mismo y la busqueda del amor son la base de este relato.

  27. Ana

    As I ve said a gazillion times, I love women in jeopardy books and Harper s Bride fits the bill Dylan is a reluctant hero for Melissa and with his gruff exterior she can t quite decide whether to be scared or amused by him Harper s Bride has it all, suspense, passion, humor and a touch of romance magic so make room on your Keeper Shelf Ana, ireadromance

  28. Carrie

    3.5 I don t remember where I heard about this book, but I bought it at smashwords inexpensively and definitely enjoyed it The love story unfolds slowly and was satisfying The ending was a little abrupt, but I find that s a problem with many romance books The description of a gold rush town and the cast of characters were well done and enjoyable.
