    This book officially releases tomorrow but it showed up on Amazon over the weekend. I had company in town but as soon as I was able to head to bed last night I started reading it.

Instead, I did the responsible thing and went to bed by midnight and waited until I got home from work today to finish it. My to-read list is long but Rachael is one author I always bump to the top and put all other books on hold for. She never disappoints so it's no surprise that this is another top-notch offering from Rachael. I loved these characters and cheered for them as they overcame obstacles and circumstances that tried to keep them apart. My Brother's Bride is an awesome and needed addition to the clean romance genre. So many authors pump out books so fast that often I find the quality of their work is lacking. Since I read for entertainment I'm able to forgive a lot and typically just overlook the shortcomings that are prevalent with so many books in this genre. Thankfully that is not the case with Rachael's books. I'm grateful for the time she takes to ensure she offers her readers quality books with original storylines that won't disappoint. Do yourself a favor and take the time to read this heartwarming romance! Content: Clean Rating: 5 Stars - I loved it.

    I love Regency books written by Rachael Anderson. She has a knack for writing a book that is thoughtful and contains humor. As a reader, I wondered along with his family members why a young man who loves living the single life, who loves being a rake and not looking at getting married anytime soon, would suddenly run off to Gretna Green and marry a woman he barely knows? The answers come a bit at a time. As the truth is revealed I realized that he is not the rake he portrays, but a man of charact I love Regency books written by Rachael Anderson.

Unfortunately, (or fortunately for the progression of this book), he doesn't stick around for long. His time in the story is cut short by an unfortunate accident. The older brother decides to take care of the widow and her unborn child. The result is a fantastic love story full of banter and great dialogue. This is a book that calls to be read. You don't want to put it down but discover how the couple will overcome the law that forbids them to marry. You won't want to miss this second installment of the Serendipity Series. It can be read as a stand-alone. There is content that could be sensitive to victims of sexual assault. Source: I received a complimentary copy. All thoughts and opinions expressed are my own,

    Friends, it's always a good day when I get to read a new book by Rachael Anderson. I've been reading her books since the very beginning and I love the way she has ventured out from contemporary romance into a new genre, regency, and made her place in it. I am loving these regency romances so much. I don't really think it's a genre thing though. Rachael Anderson just writes in a way that I love. Her books are so easy to settle in with and they just feel good to me. I thought this story was perfect Friends, it's always a good day when I get to read a new book by Rachael Anderson.

Her books are so easy to settle in with and they just feel good to me. I thought this story was perfectly paced. The knowledge of the characters came bit by bit, just enough to keep my interest and curiosity peaked but giving me plenty of time to really settle in and get to know them more intimately so they felt like friends. I loved the growing awareness between Abigail and Brigston and how gentle Brigston was with all things Abby related. Abby is definitely someone who could use a bit of gentleness. I loved this book. 💚 Content: kissing, mention of a rape with some general details. - I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions expressed are my own.

    I love a good Regency, and especially enjoy a story that deals with sordid events in a tasteful way. Have you ever wondered exactly why a couple might venture to Gretna Green to elope? My first thought is for less than ideal reasons, but things aren't always as they seem, as the reader comes to discover. When Abby shows up with Brigston's brother, I wasn't sure how the story was going to match the title in an appropriate way, but it does. Just trust me on that. Abby is a beautiful and sweet girl I love a good Regency, and especially enjoy a story that deals with sordid events in a tasteful way.

When Abby shows up with Brigston's brother, I wasn't sure how the story was going to match the title in an appropriate way, but it does. Just trust me on that. Abby is a beautiful and sweet girl, but has an uncouth streak, thanks to her becoming motherless at birth. She's somewhat shocking to her prim and proper mother-in-law, but is a very likable character. I loved seeing the brief appearances of her friends, characters from the previous book. Brigston seems so serious, yet he has a soft heart. I really enjoyed watching him relax and loosen up, especially when it comes to this new addition to the family. I'm a rule follower, but I loved seeing some of the strict and senseless rules discarded as these characters come to know the bonds of family and loyalty in a spirit of the law versus a letter of the law type of situation. The romance is sweet and tender, as it gently blossoms into something more, with the perfect balance of angst and hope. I'm hoping there will be more books forthcoming with these delightful characters. Content: mild mention of an act of violence; death; mild romance with a vague situation *I received a complimentary copy. All opinions expressed are my own and were voluntarily given.*

    Rachael Anderson’s books are always must reads for me! I love her characters, her plots and the romance in each and everyone of her books. Something really great about this one was that I learned a bit more about some of the laws in England during this time period that I didn’t know before. This book features Morgan, the Marquess of Brigston. Eventually I’m going to figure out all of the crazy titles that are found in this era, but alas, I haven’t yet. I had to like Morgan.

This book features Morgan, the Marquess of Brigston. Eventually I’m going to figure out all of the crazy titles that are found in this era, but alas, I haven’t yet. I had to like Morgan. He goes out of his way to take care of his brother, Jasper’s widow. I also really liked the way it was obvious that he cared about his brother and wished that things had turned out differently for both of them. He hated the distance that was between them. And then there was Abby. The reader realizes that there’s something a bit wrong with Abby’s marriage from the beginning, but doesn’t know what for a little while into the story. I loved Abby. Her strength and courage are amazing. I loved watching her make her way through the life she’d been given. And watching her confront her greatest fear near the end was probably my favorite part. The plot includes the law that I learned about from this book. Did you know that brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law were not allowed by law to marry? I found that a bit strange, because even in old Bible times there were marriages like this. I’m going to have to do a bit of research on this and see why and how it came about. Because I’m curious like that! I loved this whole book, from the beginning to the ending! It’s all amazing!

    Abby first appeared in book 1 of this series and it was a delight to read her story. In the beginning she's recently newly married to Lord Jasper and everything is apparently going well. There's a hint of a mystery surrounding their marriage, but we don't get to find out what that is until her new husband dies in an accident.

Morgan, Jasper's brother, is worried about her being widowed and with child, and very generously provides means for her to be taken care of. But Abby has a strong moral compass and confesses to him the truth behind her union to Jasper. I loved seeing how Abby and Morgan came closer, first as friends, and then something more, and how conflicted they were with the truth of their feelings against the law of the time. It kept me reading to see how they'd solve the problem. The ending was super sweet. Looking forward to reading the next one.

    I love Rachael Anderson's books. My Brother's Bride was particularly touching because it dealt with a series issue. This topic you don't see often in regency books, but the author handled it well. I loved Abby. She is a sweet and thoughtful character. I loved how she interacted with the brother's mother. After Jasper's death, I loved the tender moment of Abby telling the story of her childhood love of rainbows. Jasper was also an added surprise, and what an honorable man.

There was a certain scene in the kitchen between Morgan and Abby where I was laughing out loud. The pacing and plot of this book are perfectly laid out. Just the right things would happen at just the right time.

I love the titles of the books in this series and the covers are so lovely. Despite the fact that the summary could make it sound like Morgan fell in love with Abby before his brother died, I was so glad to see that the author kept the story completely appropriate in this regard. In fact, Morgan was quite suspicious about the sudden marriage that was so uncharacteristic of his brother. Not that Abby wasn’t completely lovable – she was not only beautiful, she was also vivacious and charming – it was just that something appeared to be off. And it was. My Brother’s Bride is a touchingly humorous, and very romantic story. Morgan and Abby teased each other constantly, and it was so much fun. One of my favorite scenes occurred in the rain when Morgan attempted to best Abby at his favorite childhood game. That scene provided the fodder for a fun inside joke that was then threaded throughout the rest of the story. Who knew that England had a law preventing a brother-in-law to marry his sister-in-law? I kept expecting Morgan to suggest a particular way around the problem and yet that wasn’t at all how things worked out. He was so noble (and not just because he was a Marquis!). He handled the situation in the very best possible way. This is a wonderful story for anyone who enjoys a clever and heart-warming historical tale that will leave them with a smile on their face.

    I found this book to be completely unexpected. I have read all the historical novels by this author and they have all been fun and delightful reads and even though this book had those elements as well, it was definitely more emotional than I was expecting.

However issues arise as Morgan finds himself falling for Abby who adds a new light to his life and Abby feels the same. But everything is not that simple due to the fact the Abby is his sister-in-law. The book was emotional that had me in a bit of a mess but it was also very heartwarming. I loved Abby’s quiet strength and Morgan’s protectiveness. These two were great together. I can’t wait for Sophia’s story next.

Morgan Campbell, the Marquess of Brigston, doesn't think highly of a young woman who would go off and elope with a handsome, impetuous, foolish man such as his younger brother. But the more time he spends with her and the more he learns about her, the more he realizes that he has mis-judged her - and his brother. Morgan and Abby have a huge obstacle: The Marriage Act forbids them to marry. They are legally considered brother and sister since she was married to his brother, even though it was so briefly. I really liked Morgan and Abby and I was really cheering for them to find a way past their obstacles! Lord Knave and his wife, Prudence, from the previous book in this series, "My Sister's Intended" make quite a few appearances in this book. You don't have to read the first book to enjoy this book, but you will probably want to.

    I was hoping this would be Sarah's story and was happy to see her make an appearance along with Prudence. I don't really remember Abby but I ended up liking her and her story. This storyline was different then what I usually read in regency books and I appreciated it. The story begins with a bit of scandal when Abby and Jasper elope to Gretna Green. The reason why is revealed earlier then I expected but in the end I felt it worked best for the story.

The heroine was brave, beautiful and someone I would love to be friends with. Racheal Anderson makes her characters jump off the page. Highly recommend this romance...a great escape from reality ;)

    I love this series! This is the second book in the series & I decided to reread the book before (My Sister’s Intended) to refresh my memory, both of the authors style of writing & the story itself.

Although I could recall parts of it & knew how it would end I still thoroughly enjoyed it. Having refreshed my mind on the literal application of the title, as well as the storyline style & characters involved (since these follow on from the first story), I was able to really get into the story & as I said, I was intrigued. I have no idea whether the historical element to the story is accurate or not (although Lord Hardwicke was an actual person, I am not sure if the law mentioned in the novel is portrayed with 100% accuracy) but if nothing else it added suspense to the novel where there would not have been. If nothing else, it has given me a project & an opportunity to brush up on some of my history lol This is a clean novel. Although there is reference to a few characters having been sexually abused, this was not described in any detail - merely referred to - & whilst pertinent to the overall story line, it does not detract from the story. I appreciated the way the author dealt with the issue & that justice was carried out & care & assistance given to the injured parties. I can definitely recommend this author & this series - as well as all of the other books from this author! I haven’t read a book my Ms. Anderson that I have not enjoyed. I received an Advance Reader Copy of this book. I was under no obligation to mention this or to give a review. My appreciation for Ms. Anderson’s work is such that I freely give this series 5 stars.

I enjoyed meeting Prudence and her sister, Sophia again and rejoiced watching Lord Knave and Prudence so much in love. They are my favourite couple from the previous book. Brigston and Abigail suit each other so much but I just wish more page space had been given to develop their characters. I wanted to see how they fared after their marriage, a closure to Abby's relationship with her father and more insight into Lord Jasper's character. Rachael Anderson is an author I have come to love. Her narration is crisp and frank. She stays true to her writing style here too and took me places through her settings and emotional play among characters. This book has many memorable moments and will keep you engaged throughout and for this, I give My Brother's Bride by Rachael Anderson 3.5 stars out of 5. I eagerly await the next book in this series and recommend this book to lovers of clean historical romance.

    This was a lovely, touching and at times, almost tragic read. I was a little worried if there would be a HEA and/or how Abigail and Morgan's story would end but it does end well and happily. Abby’s marriage is not at all what it appears. Raped by the nephew of their steward, who relentlessly pursues her to London even after she rebuffs him, it is Jasper who finds Abby after the horrible scene, comforts her and offers to save her.

Terrified of the scandal, Abby agrees to his offer of an elopement to Gretna Green. Abby is determined to be a good wife to Jasper but neither have deep feelings for each other and are never more than friends. A restless, rash seemingly frivolous man, Jasper is the kind always looking for entertainment and appears to thrive on a hectic social life. When Jasper brings Abby back to the family’s estate in the village but tragedy strikes when Jasper meets with an accident while attending a hunting party leaving Abby widowed. The relationship that grows between Morgan & Abby is very natural initially. Both grieving and “family” they start spending time together. Mostly on Morgan’s effort to cheer Abby up but instead he finds it that it is he that finds himself very much cheered and looking forward to the their time spent together. But the law in England does not allow marriage between in laws, & when each realize the direction their feelings are going and the futility– well that’s when I had to pull out my handkerchief. A lovely, well written story. Highly recommended.

His honesty and reserve are his trademarks. “Which was better, a man who spoke the absolute truth, or a man who turned everything into flowery speeches.” Abby was learning that “to connect with others, she couldn’t hide her true self” any longer. She craved a marriage to one “whom she could bare her soul, offer her advice, and never feel alone ever again.” When disaster strikes, Abby is once again acquainted with “loneliness, sadness, and loss. If she lets those feelings take hold, she feared the oppression would swallow her up.” This story is the perfect blend of attraction and angst, forbidden and unforgettable. Delightful, despairing Abby persists in finding hope despite tragedy, disappointment, and shocking betrayal. This contemplative and eloquent story is chockful of details, well developed characters and a childlike hope for the future. Rachael’s romances never fail to capture my heart and engage my senses. I can smell the ocean air and feel the pounding hooves beneath me. “Hope comes from looking ahead, not behind.”

Then the person who brings light in her somber life happens to be her brother in law - the man that according to English law cannot marry her. I liked all the characters in this book (well, except the villain of course) - they are decent, struggle with valid fears and concerns, have logical reactions and are not afraid to set matters right and fight for their happiness. The romance came gently, naturally and I especially liked how both Abby and Brigston found healing though their laughter together. I liked Abby's philosophy in life and her optimistic views. This is the second book in the series, but I can think it could be read also separately. Can't wait for Sophia's story to come.

    This forbidden Regency romance was excellent! Once I started, it was hard—almost impossible—to put down. The characters—Abigail and Brigston—were super well done. I became invested in their lives, their troubles, their hearts really fast, and the author did a superb job of not letting me go. The plot twist was unique. I hadn’t known about the English law that forbade sisters and brothers-in-law from marrying. They were treated like brother and sister legally and COULD NOT wed. EVER!

This led to some heart-tugging angst of the highest magnitude for me in this book. The characters were my favorite part of this book. Some Regency romances can get boring because they’re so stuffy. This wasn’t boring or stuffy like that. Whew! I thoroughly enjoyed my time immersed in its pages. ***I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for a fair and honest review.

    When Brigston's brother passes away unexpectedly, just shortly after eloping, Brigston knows it's his responsibility to ensure his sister-in-law, Abby, and her unborn child are well cared for. He's all set to do his duty--but what he isn't counting on his falling for his brother's widow. English law forbids him from marrying her, but Brigston can't stop himself for caring for Abby. This is the first full-length novel I've read by Rachael Anderson, but it definitely won't be the last.

I really enjoyed the story--the writing was really good with no annoying parts or awkwardness, the plot was interesting, the characters were endearing (I loved the banter between Brigtson and Abby!), and this book was just really good. Highly enjoyable. Great choice for those who like clean, well-written Regency romances. I received a review copy of this book. All opinions are my own.

    Every time Rachael comes out with a new book I know i need to clear my schedule or stay up into the night to read her incredible stories. This was like the others had to read it all, had to keep reading so I could see what would happen. Abigail and Birgston were not supposed to be together, but they had a tie and bond a friendship that would try to outlast that all. There was so much tension and suspense as we waited to see how they could work around a law that would make it impossible for them Every time Rachael comes out with a new book I know i need to clear my schedule or stay up into the night to read her incredible stories.

I loved how easily and effortlessly their story flowed, nothing felt forced or to fast moving. So appreciate Rachael's books as they are never rushed and always so perfectly polished. :)

    have never read anything by Rachel Anderson, but I will definitely be looking for more of her books. Aren’t the covers just beautiful? This book has a unique plot that captured my interest from the beginning. I found it interesting that we don’t get to hear Abby’s perspective for a few chapters. I wondered what was going on with her. But that added to tension in the beginning of the book and kept me reading. Once we do get to see Abby’s perspective only more questions are raised. The good news is have never read anything by Rachel Anderson, but I will definitely be looking for more of her books. Aren’t the covers just beautiful?

    Morgan Campbell is surprised when his brother shows up wed to the lovely Abigail Nash. Jasper was never one to settle for long periods of time which is why his elopement was such a surprise. The surprises keep coming after Jasper goes on a hunting trip with friends and leaves Lady Jasper in the care of his mother and brother. This book can be read as a stand-alone, but you get to know the characters better if you read the Serendipity series book 1, My Sister’s Intended first.

I just love Rachael Anderson’s style of writing. She has a way of mixing romance and a little intrigue into her books that leaves readers feeling satisfied. She has quickly become one of my favorite authors.

    An excellent book that is hard to put down! I haven't read a book by Rachael Anderson that I didn't absolutely love and this awesome book didn't fail to meet that grade. A wonderful story about Abby (who we met in the first book of this series) and Jasper and their elopement to Greta Green. A moving story of loss, sadness, new beginnings, loves lost and new loves found, in Regency England. A touching story that you won't want to put down until the last page.

    Another great regency story by Rachael Anderson! I loved the first book and have been eagerly waiting for this next one. Although the first book was more humorous with Prudence’s funny personality, this one was sweet, with some sad moments but still plenty of fun banter between Abby and Brigston. I was curious how their love story would play out and was happy with the outcome. Also, it was fun getting to visit with Prudence and Sophia again. I guess I have to impatiently wait for Sophia’s story, Another great regency story by Rachael Anderson! I loved the first book and have been eagerly waiting for this next one.

    I can not praise this author's books enough. I have loved every single one. I love the characters! I love the development of the romance! I love the story line. I love the fun dialogue. I know when I start one of her books I will have a hard time putting it down until I am done and then I am sad the book is over. I love that each story is unique. I remember Abby from the book My Sister's Intended. I liked Lord Brigston from the start. I liked seeing more of Prudence and her sister Sophie. I can' I can not praise this author's books enough.

    This wonderful regency romance is so entertaining. It is well written with lovable characters. I loved the mystery surrounding Abby and Jaspers elopement to Gretna Green. I loved the humanity of the characters. Their reactions to hard things were so realistic. I loved the interaction with Prudence and Knave from the first book in the Serendipity Series. There were so many inspiring phrases and it left me feeling uplifted.

    Abby has some mystery of why she would elope to Gretna Green with Jasper. Jasper always lost interest in young women after a short while. Jasper was too interested in gambling and his own pursuits to really care for someone. It was a puzzle for Jasper’s mother and older brother Morgan. What is the mystery behind the elopement? Why does Jasper leave as soon as Abby is increasing? A book that had me hooked and I didn’t want to put it down.

    This is my new favorite Rachael Anderson book; I loved it! I loved the characters; they seemed very real to me. I was able to connect to Abby in a way since she is pregnant for most of the book and I am currently pregnant. This book had me laughing and crying and I didn't want it to end! I wasn't sure how things were going to work out in the end and I loved the ending. I highly recommend this book!!
