Victoria cannot even muster a smile on her wedding day. Her groom is handsome, titled, and wealthy, and her marriage will save her family from financial ruin, but she is still saddened when she contemplates the long, loveless years ahead of her.
Bastian never intended to marry, but he gives in to his father’s scheme because the more he thinks about the bride, the more he wants to capture her heart. He sweeps her into his arms at the reception, determined to make her smile and laugh, though he only manages to make her blush and stare at him incredulously.
Was he wrong to believe he could turn a marriage of convenience into a love match? Or does another man already hold the heart of his reluctant bride?
Victoria is used to being a wallflower, so when her new husband – the husband who was supposed to wed her sister – tells her he was happy that he had gotten his wish to marry her instead, she is flabbergasted. Why would anyone prefer her over her sister?
Bastian has admired Victoria for ages. Although he had never planned to marry, when he was offered Victoria on a silver platter, he jumped at the opportunity. Now he just has to convince her that he wants her as a wife in every sense of the word.
Claiming His Bride is a short, sweetly romantic tale. The characters are charming, the setting is well described, and the love scenes are arousing. I would love to have had more.
