Lyon's Bride: The Chattan Curse, Book 1

They call him Lord Lyon, proud, determined - and cursed. He is in need of a bride, but if he falls in love, he dies. His fervent hope is that by marrying - and having a son - without love, perhaps he can break the curse's chains forever. Enter beautiful Thea Martin - a duke's headstrong, errant daughter and society's most brilliant matchmaker. Years ago, she and Lyon were inseparable, until he disappeared from her life without a word. Now she is charged with finding Lyon's bride - a woman he cannot love for a man Thea could love too well.

    Story
    "Haven't I read this before?"

    This book did not do it for me. It consists of several literary vehicles I personally don't care for. This book starts with the heroine trying to find a bride for the hero, we have all read this before. The other women who rival her for Lyon's attention are vapid and or catty. Why can't the protagonist persevere without casting the other women in the novel in such an unflattering light. I hate this, it is a tired and somewhat insulting concept and I have no idea why it is used so frequently.

    That being said there were parts of this book I did enjoy. Mostly the middle of the novel and the secondary characters, Lyon's sibling and Thea's children. I knew before purchasing this book that it was part of a series but was still shocked by the lack of resolution at the end of the book. I don't want to give anything away but this read more like the first third of a story instead of the first story in a trilogy.

    The narration was decent. Ms. Landor has voiced some great books (especially the Julie Garwood books) and has really impressed me in the past. My one issue with her in this book is that one of the characters is SUPPOSED to have an Indian accent. I almost looked forward to his lines so I could try to decipher what kind of accent she was trying for.

    Again, this book didn't do it for me. The entire trilogy is highly rated on audible so it may just be me. I purchased this book on sale so that eases the blow a little. I would consider trying another book by this author if it were only $5 but no way would I blow a credit on one!

    Any additional comments?

    I made it to chapter 10 then just couldn't take any more of this boring book. It just seamed to dribble on and on. Disappointed i hope for more.
