TAINTED BRIDE by A.S. Fenichel - A Reader's Opinion


Tainted Bride by A.S. Fenichel - book review

A Reader's Opinion


Touching love story!


A.S. Fenichel is a new author for me! I loved her first story, Tainted Bride, in the Forever Brides series. I'd like to say "It's a real rollercoaster ride of emotions," and some scenes are so touching, dramatic and emotional. This story is all about finding peace and happiness after a tragedy. I liked her two main characters, Sophia and Daniel.


Tainted Bride is mostly Sophia's story. The heroine leaves America to move to England with her great aunt Daphne, a very strict person who wants to find her a proper husband. Unfortunately, Sophia only wants to forget a tragic event that happened to her in the past! She doesn't trust men anymore . . . until she meets Daniel! With time and trust, she will share her dark secret with him, but Daniel only wants to protect and avenge her. Let’s say that Sophia is a very complex character. They will embark on a journey of twists and turns!


What will happen to Sophia and Daniel? Will she finally find peace?

Tainted Bride


Only trust can save her….

Sailing to London, Sophia Braighton only hopes to escape certain ruin. But when she arrives, her Great Aunt Daphne has other plans for the American-born beauty. Determined to marry off her niece to a man of means, she propels Sophia into London society, not knowing that the young woman’s trust in men is shattered. In fact, Sophia never expects to ever feel anything for a man. Then again, she never expects to find herself in the

company of the dashing earl of Marlton….

From the moment he sees Sophia, Daniel Fallon feels alive in a way he has not since his broken engagement. Though the vulnerable beauty shies from the passion burning bright between them, Daniel is determined to court her and make her his bride. And when he learns of the painful secret she harbors, he is equally determined to take revenge on the man responsible. But will the quest destroy him—and his future with his beloved?
