The Convict s Bounty Bride is the Command Performance debut novella by New Zealand author Lena Dowling At 59 pages it s like a short story that is set in England s regency period At first glance of the blurb the hero is said to be an ex convict and I made the assumption that the story would be set in early Australia Instead as I mentioned it s set in England and it s about the lead up to his return to Australia and whether he will have a bride in tow with him Lady Thea Willers has no plans of marriage In fact she intends to be a spinster so she can pursue her career and lead an independent life But when ex convict James Hunter takes a liking to this fiestyogmatic young woman he has his own ideas about her future To settle her brother s gambling Loveknot (Welcome to Tyler, debts Thea s father enters into a contract of marriage for Hunter to hisaughter Obviously Thea isn t happy about this The Perfect Blend decision and I was glad when sheidn t succumb to this ecision lightly and proceeded to collate a list of uestions to present to Hunter in order to ecide whether marrying Hunter would be worth freeing her brother of if she should send him to the galleys Of course her path to gain some control over the situation is meddled by her attraction and curiosity of Hunter as a prospective sexual partner and husband When her brother s Wanted (Sealed with a Kiss debts are cleared via a family tragedy Thea and Hunter are faced with theecision to proceed with a marriage based on love or to simply part ways The Convict s Bounty Bride is a short easy read I liked that Thea wasn t a martyr and that her strong attitudes were challenged by Hunter He on the other hand saw no emotional or sexual value in marriage he just wanted a partner and he fully intended to find sexual pleasure elsewhere this too was challenged when he met Thea The story was a pleasurable read albeit not uite long enough for Thea and Hunter s love to be completely believable but enjoyable nonetheless I really really wish this book had been longer I honestly think it would have been better if it was However this was a rather short story easy to get through but it fell a little short in the endThis is the story of James Hunter and Lady Thea Willers James was in prison for a crime he Rayuan Sang Bos [Seduced By the Boss] didn t commit but now he is out and seeking his payment for being in prison in the first place the hand of Lady Thea Willers She however knows nothing of this bargain that her father made The story pretty much goes on uite expectedly from thereOne of the biggest problems I had with this book was pacing Everything seemed a bit to rushed and I was left scratching my head wondering how the two of them fell in love This book would have been so much better if it had to it There was just too much left unsaid and undone that it really tempered my enjoyment of this book It was all Bachelor to the Rescue (Home to Dover, desert and no meal and just a bit to rushedIid however really get invested in the characters This was both good and bad Again I wanted from them but with this only being a short novella I was left wanting But still I enjoyed the characters mostlyand when they weren t being annoying and wished a little building had gone into them Flat and uninteresting at times I was hoping they would change a bit However when I was enjoying them I was really really enjoying themOverall the concept of this book was good the idea was good but the story as a whole fell a bit flat for me I was left wanting to much information then I should have been that it Secrets At Maple Syrup Farm didn t make up for the good pieces throughout However still a short enjoyable read if you ve got a few hours to kill on something romantic25 out of 5 starsI was provided a copy of this book by NetGalley in exchange for an honest reviewThis and other reviews can be seen on my blog The Forbidden Library Great ReadI enjoyed the characters the flow of the story I had to take the time to read all of the story at once and it was Halloween Marrying the enemy saughterInteresting story I had read the convict wife which lead me to the other books in the series A bit short for me I would have liked a epilogue with there arrival and final home settingAlso she only takes one trunk but in book two has many gowns so maybe than one trunk would be better Or could you please release a second book where she Whispers Of The Heart describes life in Australia her arrival and problems as a lady farmer having children sending for her clothing Including swimming riding encounters with wild animalsOtherwise Iid enjoy your story just think there should be a part two The highlight of this book was efinitely the characters They had their own time of personalities although they also appeared flat at times Being a novella I think a whole book as a whole would have made the characters pop Everything about this story was rushed I idn t feel like I had time to really get into the story at all and everything just flew on by There was no build up to the romance it kind of just happened I was left feeling like I had a lot of uestions with no answersNote I received this book via Netgalley. Life as a convict in an Australian penal colony was brutal but James Hunter had the advantages of raw physical strength and courage on his side He survived and now he is back; a self‐made man of means etermined

I haven t read many stories about those who were transported for crime to a penal colony so I was especially interested in giving this story a tryThe Altered from review posted on Romancing the Social SciencesYou could be forgiven for thinking a book entitled The Convict s Bounty Bride would be set in the colony but you be wrong If you read between the lines of the synopsis you can see it s set in London but somehow I still expected that it would end up back in Australia at some point It never Let Go did but my annoyance at that was uickly overwhelmed by my annoyance at just about everything else The combination of the writing styl Four stars for this short novel I liked it a lot Why only a rating of four Because the characters are so beautiful and funny that I would have preferred a real novel with a richer and complex plot the thing was so short left me a littleisappointedWith her skill the writer was in being able to get shortly right to the heart of the story and this is a very important thing in a short novelThea Willers is the young Chatsfields Ultimate Acquisition daughter of an Earl she tries in every way to escape to her mother s main hobby organize a beautiful wedding with some suitable men for her social position The girl who she grew up with a certain freedom and thanks to the her father s will she has been able to study something unusual for women at that time she has a sharp mind and she has very brilliant and important projects in mind for her life she wants a career writing and she especiallyoesn t want to be wed with a husband that restricts her freedom that she s always been accustomed to having This however goes against her parents wishes and she receives no support from her brother who is too busy getting lost in artificial paradises that the laudanum gives himJames Hunter is just returned from Australia new colony of England where he spent a the last seven years as a convict as a result of a scam which actually he Major Westhavens Unwilling Ward (Hh didn t commit The man himself to save his family from ruin he prefers to ruin his reputation in exchange for money that could solve his family s economic problems but he also has another plan in order to regain entry into polite society where money is not enough he makes an agreement with the parent of the real culprit when he will return from the colony he will have the right to marry the Earl saughter our Major Westhavens Unwilling Ward dear TheaThe trap for our heroine seems to have taken but in fact James Hunter proves to be a veryifferent from all the men the girl knew and although at first she objected to the Union then she begins to think there are some enjoyful points in the marriage this man so charming and unconventionalThea is a funny character with a very clever mind she s smart and she studies all sorts of thing to free herself from mother s projects I admired a lot even her stubbornness and courageJames is the ideal man for a romance beautiful and amned but at the same time extremely intelligent with his unusual behavior compared to what you might expect from a gentleman but at the same time he s proud and loyalA really nice couple a real novel with them it could be so beautiful however I enjoyed and had fun with this reading it s worth itI reccomend the forthcoming book March 1 to people in love with this kind of book Thanks to Netgalley
