Brash by Margo Maguire Review






When Lieutenant James Norris’s closest friend is killed in a horrible accident, he realizes life is far too short to spend it all in the post-Napoleonic navy. He decides it is time to marry, and he knows just the young woman he wants as his wife. Lady Virginia Barrington is charming and beautiful, and James travels to her family’s manor to ask her the most important question of his life.

Lady Stella Barrington was lame and sickly for much of her life. Now she walks with barely a limp, and she is ill no more than anyone else. She has been in love with James Norris for as long as her elder brother’s friend has been coming to visit at Barrington Manor. Stella cannot doubt that James has come to see her lovely but shallow sister. But Virginia is away, and if Stella wants to win the man she loves, she can be nothing but brash…

This is a sweet post-Napoleonic romance. Great for all ages, very sweet and loving, so if you are looking for an erotic read this is not the book for you.
Stella, the daughter that is always left behind, the daughter whom is always ignored, finally gets to share her vision with Lt. James Norris, a man she has always cared for from afar. With most of her family away save her brother, Stella shows James what a strong and kind hearted women she has become.
This is a great book I just wish it was longer. The writing was smooth, but a lot was left out that could have made this book even better.
Despite all of that I am still giving Brash 9 out of 10 for being such a beautiful story.
