Publisher's Summary

Determined to prove her worth as a budding archeologist, Genisse Braxton vows to solve one of the world's greatest mysteries - to find the location of the lost city of Zerzura. Unfortunately, no man dares take the risk of escorting the resolute young scholar across the open desert. But on her way to Egypt, Genisse engages in a daring deception - she will switch places with Mildred Whimpelhall, who is traveling to meet her fiancé.

Cynical adventurer Jim Owen will do anything to escape the dark secrets of his troubled past. Betrayed by the woman he loved, scorned by proper society, he agrees to carry out a danger-fraught task: escort Mildred Whimpelhall across a lawless desert to her intended. But Jim is about to learn that "Mildred" isn't exactly what she seems... and the dangers they face together are eclipsed only by an even greater peril: falling in love, against all reason, with another guy's bride.

    "Egypt, a daring woman and dangerous man"

    An Incredible Bargain!!! I Loved this book. It is the first Brockway book I read, and I cannot say enough good things about it. I almost never 'reread' a book, but this book has some of the Best romance language I've ever read. Literally teared up... pretty rare for me. I was fascinated by the historical review, loved the heroines moxie--no dumb heroine here!

    Any additional comments?

    For all you history lovers out there this book is for you! I don't mind a little history with my romance but this was way to much.
    And to the reviewer who said Ginny was TSTL I think you're wrong. Ginny was a little goofy and a little clumsy and that's what made her so likable. And I really liked Jim.
    The secondary characters were great: Haji, Jock, Magi, Mildred and (sorta) Pomfrey.
    Over all it was a good romance, good sexual tension, good sex BUT there was just too much history. I know a lot of you will be interested in what was happening in Egypt at the turn of the century but that's not for me.

    As to the narrator: This is the first time I've been disappointed in Ms. Eyre. She does all the British accents just fine, male and female, but she can't seem to do an American male. It's like she can do one or the other, male voice or American accent but she can't do both.
    Oh, well, I've listened to a lot of books by her and they were all great so I won't hold this one against her.

    Story
    "Great story-Lame title!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    It's exciting, quick paced, and takes place OUTSIDE of England.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The romance remained unpredictable.


    Have you listened to any of Justine Eyre’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I enjoyed all her different voices for the characters.


    Any additional comments?

    An exciting historical romance that takes place outside of England. Glad I used a credit to get it. I will look for others by this author.

    Story
    "Really Fun!"

    Having never read Connie Brockway before, I wasn't sure what to expect from the Other Guy's Bride. Fortunately, the novel, which is set in Eygpt, makes good use of its exotic location. The story involves a good dose of adventure, comedy, and romance, as well as two sparring adventurers with a lot of chemistry.

    "fun read"

    the only thing that bothered me was the repetitive nonsense between the 2 lovers - it was as if for 2 very smart people they were incapable of rational thought and it got very irritating.
    was amusing and had some great dialog - enjoyed it a lot.
