Bride for a Night is a wonderfully written historical romance that captivates its readers from the very first page with its unpredictable plot, realistic characters and the undeniable chemistry between the main characters. 

The plot is explored well throughout the novel and the pace of it never seems rushed; though there are a few instances where certain issues really should have been resolved before they were, as it just wasn’t believable that other situations hadn’t already fixed these problems. The plot, itself, is rather original and the backgrounds setting of the events, which are transpiring in France and England at the time the novel is set, are intertwined nicely into the plot of the novel. However, the reason that the plot is so captivating would be the unexpected twists that occurred suddenly throughout the novel at crucial stages. 

The main characters are both extremely likable and simply fascinating to read about, but the secondary characters, which had the potential to be extremely interesting, ended up letting down the novel a bit. This is because these characters had too major roles in the development of the plot line to have so little exploration into the reasons behind their emotions and actions; this left the characters seeming almost one dimensional despite the potential they started with. 

The relationship between the main characters is extremely well written; with the exact right balance between scorching chemistry and the emotional connection that exists between them. In fact, the development of these characters, which was required for their romance to have a positive ending, was the highlight of the novel and is what makes it stand out from the rest of its genre. 

Bride for a Night is an absolutely stunning historical romance and all fans of such novels should definitely give it a read.
