New York Times bestselling author Cathy Maxwell returns with a delicious new series, The Brides of Wishmore

What happens when a bride says maybe?

She'd once been the toast of London, but now scandal has brought her down. Still, pretty, petted Lady Tara Davidson can't believe her new fate. She had wanted to marry for love . . . but her profligate father has promised her hand to none other than Breccan Campbell, the "Beast of Aberfeldy" and laird of the valley's most despised clan! Well, Tara may have to marry him, but Breccan can't make her love him—can he?

What happens when the groom insists?

Breccan Campbell is nobody's fool. He knows that Tara is trouble. Yet he's determined to reform the Campbell name even if it means forging an alliance with the arrogant beauty. There's no doubt that Tara is a challenge, and Breccan loves nothing more. For he's vowed to thoroughly seduce Tara—and make her his in more than name alone.

This is a very good tale of thinking you want one thing in life and finding out how wrong you were and that love can change everything. I loved Breccan Campbell. He is such a gentle giant of a man as well as very misunderstood by society. Tara is a brat who won my heart slowly by becoming the really person she was truly meant to be. I highly recommend this book and series the book is not a stand alone read.

THE BRIDE SAYS MAYBE by Cathy Maxwell is a delightful Regency Historical Romance set in Scotland. #2 in "The Brides of Wishmore " Trilogy. See,"The Bride Says No". What a delightful story, once again, Ms. Maxwell has written a tale of romance, passion, misunderstandings, and finding love. With a "Beauty and the Beast" theme, you will be delighted as well as a little in awe as Lady Tara Davidson is basically sold off to settle her father's debts to Breccan Campbell, the "Beast of Aberfeldy". Breccan is considered huge by other's standards, even to the Scots, he has faced ridicule but he finds he wants Tara, the county beauty, at all costs. So he pays Tara's father's huge debts and place's his clan's future on a horse race. He must win or lose everything. Since, he spent most of his money of paying Tara's father's debts. His clan is considered the most despised clan in the valley. While, they may be poor they are rich in love. Tara, despite herself is attracted to Breccan. He is determined to seduce her. A delightful tale with a "Beauty and the Beast" theme. I find I thoroughly enjoyed this story, even though Tara is a little conceited, demanding, prideful(how that can be I can not phantom) and lovely. She grows up along the way, and it was nice to see her and Breccan grow together. If you enjoy Regency romance, HEA endings, and a great story than you will want to pick up "The Bride Says Maybe". I can hardly wait for the next installment coming soon, "The Groom Says Yes". Received for an honest review from the publisher and Edelweiss.

Disappointing. The story just leaves you hanging at the end. I wish there could have been more involvement with her sister. Tara never sees the school Breccan built, too much of that part of the story is left out. It's very weak.

I really loved this AWESOME book. I didn't think Cathy Maxwell could make me like Tara. Tara was selfish, self-centered, loved only London, loved males worshipping her 24/7 and loved only herself. Breccan is a huge man. Tall and large. He just wanted to be loved for himself. Due to her father's debts, Tara agrees to marry Breccan after he catches her running away from her home. Tara grows up and learns that she liked being useful. She falls in love with her hubby but he always working on all his projects. Breccan falls in with his wife but he evil cousin makes him doubt Tara virtue and he puts up a wall round myself. I also loved all the dogs that took sides between the warring hubby and wife. This book has a broken bed and a ripped night grown. I give this book 4 fingers up and 9 toes!!

This is the second book in the Brides of Wishmore series, a tale of two sisters, Tara and Aileen Davidson, who seek love in England but end up finding their happy endings in their homeland of Scotland. Mary Jane Wells narrates both stories beautifully, with a lovely and lilting Scottish brogue that is so enchanting and easy to understand; it is a joy for audio listeners. It made me smile to listen to it. Tara is a legendary beauty who has not had good luck with men. Her first love married another woman while her arranged betrothed chose her sister instead. Now, her drunken father’s gambling has made him indebted to the big and brawny Breccan Campbell, known as “the Beast of Aberfeldy.” Breccan has been infatuated with Tara Davidson ever since he first saw her. So he buys her father’s debts in exchange for marriage to her. A large, honest, self-made (and self-conscious) man who sees through Tara’s spoiled and fiery temper, all he wants is for her to love him. But Tara’s pride still hurts and hopes to eventually return to London and reclaim her light and carefree life, where she was the belle of the ball in the glittering city.  But as Tara and Breccan come to know each other, they realize they want something more in their lives. Their love story is fun to hear read aloud and has a joyous quality to it, with many, many humorous and tender moments. Narrator Mary Jane Wells gives each character a distinct and attractive (and very realistic) voice. Even the minor characters, notably Breccan’s beloved uncles, Jonas and Lachlan, come alive. I especially like the stories that Breccan entertains Tara with at night, stories his beloved mother told him in childhood. They help move their love story forward and they take on a very charming quality when read aloud in Wells’ clear and strong Scottish accent. Tara’s high-strung and very young voice is captured perfectly; her innocence but willingness to realize her mistakes is wonderful to hear. From the first book in the series (The Brides Says No) and through this one, you can actually hear her maturing before your very ears. This story is fabulous from beginning to end, a real feel-good book as even Tara’s first love, Rory Jamison, makes an appearance toward the end. That alone makes it worth reading and/or listening to. Cathy Maxwell writes with verve and love and it is very apparent throughout this romantic story. Read The Bride Says No first, however, as this novel picks up right where that one left off in an exciting cliffhanger ending. Highly recommended for all lovers of historical romance, especially for those who love their love stories set in Scotland.
