Publisher's Description

Do You Believe in Love at First Fight?

Any ship arriving from England means good news for Virginia colony farmers. The "tobacco brides" would be on board--eligible women seeking a better life in America, bartered for with barrels of tobacco from the fields.

Drew O'Connor isn't stirred by news of a ship full of brides. Still broken-hearted from the loss of his beloved, he only wants a maid to tend his house and care for his young sister.

What he ends up with is a wife--a feisty redhead who claims she is Lady Constance Morrow, daughter of an Earl, brought to America against her will. And she wants to go straight back to England as soon as she can. She hasn't the foggiest notion how to cook, dares to argue with her poor husband, and spends more time working on mathematical equations than housework. What kind of a wife is that? Drew's Christian forbearance is in for some testing.

Headstrong and intelligent, deeply moral but incredibly enticing, Constance turns what was supposed to be a marriage of convenience into something most inconvenient, indeed.

    I started reading this book on a Tuesday night and by Thursday night I had read the whole book! I had such a hard time putting the book down! I would put it down, go wash some dishes, come back and read some more, then get up to go clean something else, then come back to the book....lol. I knew I couldn't let the book interfere with my housework or my husband would be wondering what I did all day, lol, but this book captivate me! I love old pioneer romance books, and this one was set at 1643 and it showed how it must have been like for the early settlers of America, all their hard work and the heartaches they had to endure, but also the strength and hope they had in God! And the romance and love developing among the characters as amazing! I loved the build up! I have never heard of this author before, but she is a great author that really pulls you into the story! Loved it all the way!!

    Okay, Deeanne, could you please stop writing books that I can't stop reading. Being unable to put a book down greatly decreases my level of sleep! And yet... I wouldn't trade these late nights for anything! I was so drawn in by the story, the characters and the challenges and hardships that played out in this book. It was wonderfully written and masterfully told. All you fans of Deeanne Gist, romance, historical fiction... I think you'll be very pleased!

    Very disappointed. I read Christian fiction so I don't have to put up with the sexual aspect of secular books. This is soft porn. Stirring up passions that are not befitting for Christian fiction. I threw the book away.

    This review was written for Bride Most Begrudging, A - eBook.
    Okay! S this book was at times emotionally intense. The story starts off with a situation that seems so hopeless! And at first I kept waiting for the lady to be rescued from what had happened....but she ends up going through and it is amazing. Several times I had to put the book down just to have a break from all the "o my goodness" stuff that happens to this poor girl. But my putting it down was never long lived because my curiosity of what was going to happen next would help me get back into the book.

    I identified with this book because we all have tough situations that we sometimes have to go throu that require us to look for God's helping us see a better or more creative way of getting through things. This time last year my area was hit really hard with tornadoes and we were faced with going for about 5 days with no electricity.... So, I felt like I could identify with the lady here. And I think this story help me to look back and see how God did help and bless us through those days. And I really had not stopped until reading that story to reflect that we managed to get through so easily.

    Definitely enjoy every book from this author. I actually look for her books when I want a good emotionally detailed read. It is like spending time with a girl friend and talking about your troubles. And then encouraging each other in Christ!

    A Bride Most Begrudging. Just look at the title. How can that not intrigue you?!

    This is my first Deeanne Gist book and I thoroughly enjoyed this read. When hero, Drew O'Conner sees someone in trouble, he must needs help. Even if it's a woman with red hair. Which he professes to hate. Both of them forced into a marriage by the rules of the colony, their emotions dance around each other in the usual, yet beguiling two-step. When you think all is faring well and you're ready for the happily ever after ending, Ms. Gist withholds it yet again. I must admit. There was a moment when I really. SERIOUSLY. wanted to slap Drew. Several times just so he wouldn't miss my point!

    But, when you find yourself screaming at the main character, wiping tears off your cheeks, and laughing out loud, these are all the earmarks of a fantastic story.
