From New York Times bestselling author Jane Feather comes the first of a wonderful new trilogy, The Blackwater Brides, set in the sensually im-proper Georgian period, in which three noble brothers discover they will be forced to find brides under highly unusual circumstances.

Jasper Sullivan, Earl of Blackwater, needs a prostitute. Not in the usual way, however. His wealthy uncle’s will promises to divide his huge fortune among his nephews if each rescues a fallen woman . . . by marrying her! And since Jasper’s estates were already mortgaged to the hilt before he inherited them, when he catches a pretty young prostitute trying to pick his pocket, he immediately makes his proposal.

Clarissa Astley is not at all what Jasper believes. The orphaned daughter of a prosperous merchant, she is searching the seedier districts of London for her young brother, abducted by their evil guardian, who wants the little boy’s inheritance. But she needs powerful help, and the darkly handsome Earl of Blackwater is certainly that. So she pretends to be exactly what he assumed— a risky charade for an innocent virgin. But when passion flares between Jasper and Clarissa, the deception becomes even more difficult to handle. . . .

started off very slow and hard to get into, but got better about halfway through. not the best I've read by Jane Feather.more
Not a huge fan of this book. I guess I would say it was just ok. I was a little shocked by the language at first, I guess because I wasn't prepared and I thought it was a little excessive. I didn't feel like the two main characters, Clarissa & Jasper really fell in love. It seemed forced. I did enjoy the suspence of what would happen with Clarissa's uncle. I can't say if I will be reading the next books in the series. Probably not.more
