NOTE For most potential readers a 25 to 3 star rating may be accurate But for me certain little and not so little things snowballed to the point where cumulatively it killed whatever good parts there were to the storyMEMORABLE UOTE To tell the truth of it my lord aren t all men basically the same under their breeches no matter from whence they hailA closet fan of non Regency historical romances and unfamiliar with Theresa Meyers I had high hopes for The Spellbound Bride based on the blurb the reviews and per the author over two years of research However after struggling to the finish I felt as if I read a book different from some other reviewers It bothered me on so many levels I actually felt insultedApologies in advance if this review seems harsh but in order to justify the 1 star rating a very rare personal rating I have to touch on areas that I generally avoid partly to suppress my personal preferences but mostly out of recognition of the hard work writers put into their stories Another personal dislike but MINOR SPOILERS ahead1 CHARACTERPLOT POINTS HUH I willingly suspend disbelief and critical thinking in order to enjoy fiction but sometimes certain things are so jarringly wrong that they leap out and smack me in the face Occur early enough in the the story and my continued reading is forever taintedFour major smack moments without giving too much away heroine s belief in being cursed by some dark deadly poison that dwelt insider sic her despite receiving numerous notes heroine so skilledknowledgeable she brewed sleeping potions for her da at age 4 Archibald is the 14 year old Earl of Argyll yet on a trip only Ian and Sorcha travel with him around a storyline that was so implausible that I was rolling my eyes and apparent short passage of time in the second half of the book yet the heroine already had a slight swell2 UM WRITING STYLE I can generally look beyond most writing styles but I simply couldn t understand the rationale behind splitting the speaker with the person s dialogue into separate paragraphs ie 1st sentenceparagraph is He frowned Next sentenceparagraph is the person s dialogue Also the one or two sentence narrative paragraphs became annoying Maybe I m old fashioned but I expect such short paragraphs to be limited to crucial thoughts information or turning points too many and it becomes almost stream of consciousness lacking cohesion andor transitional writing skills At first I though the foregoing was due to formattingdownload error but nope appeared throughout in parts to the end The wasted space resulting in many pages to turn then made me think of Kindle abuseAlso get a little too fancy with imagery and it can lead to output such as an edge to his voice that was filled with both unsympathetic cold and hot anger I still can t figure this out and concern marring the dark trusting line of her brows what does a trusting browline look like As a reader I don t want to be distracted like this This is not Nietzsche for goodness sakes3 HISTORICAL CONTEXT This is the least of my problems with this book I don t give a fig about historical accuracy so long as deviating from it serves some purpose case in point love Braveheart despite its utter trashing of historical facts However given the author s long research in contrast to the actual amount of historical background incorporated into the story I couldn t resist looking up the North Berwick witch trials after finishing this book The story begins in 1593 but the actual witch trials occurred from 1590 to 1592 Also King James VI married Princess Anne in 1589 but the story refers to her as a new brideI hate to say it but unless there was a typo in the prologue s dateline I read nothing in the story that warranted using the later date of 1593 Such a tiny simple thing but that alone rendered the historical aspects of the story incongruousThis final point is truly just me and my upbringing I try to give as much leeway as I can when foreign phrases pop up in books But sometimes FYI the first known use of the term t te t te was in 1696 Could it have been in use before that Absolutely 100 years before Not likely Its use in this story let alone in dialogue well you decide
