Jayce Cullen has been fighting her fear of thunder and lightning ever since she was a child, but nothing could have prepared her for the fury of her new husband. Feeling deceived and betrayed into a loveless marriage, Lord Reese Harrington wants nothing to do with his new wife. Trapped in a marriage with no escape, the beautiful young bride must battle the demons of her husband's past and hope that she can weather the storm his brutish behavior unleashes.

This is a medieval romance novella.

From the Author:
Hello everyone. Please note that The Bride and the Brute is a romance novella, so it is much shorter than a full length novel. It was written that way on purpose. It is meant to be a "short and sweet" read, as someone has described it, that you can finish in one sitting. If you prefer full length novels, please consider some of my other romance novels. This eBook does contain excerpts and full chapter previews of those books. Thanks for reading!

    This book was written with much love and passion, but only for the two main characters to once recognize how the circumstances surrounding their marriage was not typical for them. They fought each other tooth and toenail even dividing those around them. But when the truth was finally revealed, did they truly realize they were made for each other. LaMar

    Okay, but the dialogue of the characters was too modern. Rather than 'Are you out of your mind' I would have expected something on the order of 'Have you lost your wits?' Also, contractions & compound words in the same sentence didn't lend any credibility to this as the language of an historic novel. The whole taking the virginity of his wife in the middle of a severe storm right after she is almost killed by a wind-swept tangle of branches, while she is in a terror from the storm, and professing that he always loved her anyway - well, that was cheesy & farcical to the point of gross unbelievability.
  • Loved it!

    I never write reviews. Though it warns this book is a short story I wasn't expecting it to be that short! The book say 600 and some odd pages and really the story itself is 250 pages the other 400 pages are all chapter samples of other books. The end of the story was rushed! This story line was phenomenal it had great potential and it just stopped short! This book catches you right from the beginning and you really feel for the characters and the the last chapter is so rushed. Good story, ending isn't.

    I loved this story! I hope the author considers doing a follow up of it so we can see how things play out afterwards with their love and the other issues they faced!

    AISI (As I See It) Laurel O'Donnell's novella is well-worth a read! She paints word pictures that are captivating and clear. Would love to read more of her work!
  • Okay?

    While the story was great, for I enjoy works of this genre, do not be deceived by this author. There is a third of the amount of pages promised. Here I am, expecting to have a long night of reading ahead of me, and "The End" comes across the page instead. Good story, but disappointed clots my heart.
