ON SALE FOR A LIMITED TIME - DON'T MISS OUT!

Another delicious Georgian gem from Lucinda Brant: High drama, deep emotion, and witty prose, all deftly sprinkled with historical detail to keep you mesmerized from beginning to end. Immerse yourself in the romance and opulence of her eighteenth century aristocratic world.

When the Earl of Salt Hendon marries squire's daughter Jane Despard, Society is aghast. But Jane and Salt share a secret past of heartache and mistrust. They are forced into a marriage neither wants; the Earl to honor a dying man's wish, Jane to save her stepbrother from financial ruin. Beautiful inside and out, the patient and ever optimistic Jane believes love conquers all; the Earl will take some convincing. Enter Diana St. John, who has been living in a fool's paradise believing she would be the next Countess of Salt Hendon. She will go to extreme lengths, even murder, to hold Salt's attention. The newlyweds must overcome past prejudices and sinister opposition to fall in love all over again.

"As the plot develops and darkens you realize the imagery is spectacular. If you've never met true evil just wait 'till you meet Diana St. John; definitely made me a fan." - SWurman, Night Owl Reviews 5 STAR TOP PICK


"A love story that fans of historical romance will relish. The rakish and raucous character of the period is contrasted superbly with the sophistication of the age." - Fiona Ingram, Readers' Favorite 5 STARS


"Brant's talent is undeniable and dare I admit... I enjoyed SALT BRIDE more than many of Georgette Heyer's own beloved works and that is high praise indeed." - Courtney Webb, Stiletto Storytime
