Publisher's Summary

Dear Listener, Douglas Sherbrooke, Earl of Northcliffe, is a man besieged. He must have an heir. Thus he must first provide himself with the requisite bride. Alexandra Chambers, youngest daughter of the Duke of Beresford, has loved Douglas Sherbrooke since she was 15. Unfortunately, it is her sister, the incomparable Melissande, he wishes to wed. But life never ladles out what one expects, and Douglas finds himself wed to the wrong sister. If having an unwanted wife isn't enough, he is also plagued by The Virgin Bride, a ghost that is reputedly seen in the countess's bedchamber. Does the willowy phantom really appear to Douglas? Does she speak to him? I hope you enjoy listening to the exploits of Alexandra and Douglas as much as I enjoyed writing about them. You will see them again in The Hellion Bride. --Catherine Coulter

What the Critics Say

"Anne Flosnik seems to have a wonderful time with this romance, reading in staid, unemotional tones that fit Douglas's attitude about marriage. As hot-blooded Alex discovers lust that quickly turns to love, Flosnik's reading engages the listener right though to the luscious conclusion." (AudioFile)

    "Fluff"

    I enjoyed this book for what it was , Fluff . I didn't expect some great novel when purchasing it . This is the kind of story you would find on the Lifetime movie channel . So if you just want some fluff romance this is the book for you . I will purchase the whole series just to past the time away in the evening while crochet ..

    Story
    "Highly Entertaining Romance"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Sherbrooke Bride to be better than the print version?

    Not sure - didn't read the printed version


    What other book might you compare The Sherbrooke Bride to and why?

    I think they all are the same somewhat - but this was an entertaining story.


    What about Anne Flosnik’s performance did you like?

    It took some time to get used to her male voice - I wasn't to happy about those but otherwise I love the performance.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.

    "Better than her latest work!"

    I have read that Catherine's old work is much better than her new work. I agree . This book is better that her new ones. The story was good but the dialog was wired and silly at many occasions !!!! The narration was good . Actually the best performance I heard for Anne Flosnik so far. I liked it :)

    "Disturbing"

    I was put off by the contempt "The Hero" consistently showed for Alexandra. And the weird, controlling relationship between her sister and her sister's husband "for her own good" was really disturbing. The writing was good, but I just didn't feel comfortable with the interactions of the characters.

    "Coma inducing"

    I firmly believe books like this are why there are "do not resuscitate" clauses in living wills.I kept up with as long as I could and finally after several hours had to abandon ship. It might have gotten better, I can't say but after about 7 hours I wanted to kill all the characters in this book for wasting my time. If your having trouble sleeping you might want to give it a try.
