    1. No, no, NO. I HATED this book and its so-called "hero." The author takes a brave, independent, intelligent woman and turns her into a lickspittle for a self-righteous and domineering busybody. The "hero" Perry is peremptory to a fault, always assuming he knows best for the heroine (no matter her own wishes or needs, or that he claims he thinks her intelligent). And there's no arguing with him; when she disagrees, he temporizes-- "we'll see" or "for the moment, we'll leave it at that" when he has [...]


    2. I normally like this author and I was waiting for this third book. I was very disappointed. I felt as if the author totally gave up on it by the end. It never felt resolved. It never felt like she got the justice for which she was looking. It reached a point where the author seemed to realize it would have to be longer than the others in order to finish the story so instead she decided to get it over with as quickly as she could. It was a major let down. I gave it two stars to start with, but as [...]


    3. I really like the writers writing it is solid and well written. Her descriptions flow and it feels you are right there with the main characters. However, great writing is not the only thing that makes a book great. The premise of the story is fascinating. Three brothers must find wives that are "fallen women" in order so the brothers can inherit a fortune from their uncle. So our hero Peregrine is the last one so far to look for a bride, and he might just find her in our heroine Alexandra. Our h [...]


    4. Jane Feather is very good at what she does, which is creating a froth of a book in which much depends upon the reader's willing suspension of disbelief and the charm of her main characters. Plus of course those details of food and clothing that readers of Regencies always adore. Jane is also one of the sexier Regency writers (the sort that darling older ladies used to long for when I was but a girl working in a library; they would entreat me to get them something spicy, with a wink). Being now a [...]


    5. Alexandra's mother left her father for an Italian peer. Her father in his rage had the first marriage annuled. Therefore his two daughters by that marriage became bastards. On his death the two daughters discover this change to their life and find themselves penniless and needing to work. One daughter is an invalid so the other daughter Alex, must support them both and a nurse. She is a well read educated woman familiar with her father's library which has not fallen to her self centered distant [...]


    6. A greedy cousin with a power-loving wife has inherited an estate, and has taken 20,000 pounds promised to the daughters of the house, one an invalid.The eldest daughter disguises herself and moves back home to catalogue her father's library which the cousin wants to sell and offer investing (!) advice. She skimming some of the investment profits and reinvesting them, even as she lists the library's contents, except for a rare copy of "The Canterbury Tales."Meanwhile Peregrine Sullivan must find [...]


    7. Alexandra Douglas and her invalid sister were left penniless and fatherless when their parents divorced. Their father meant to see to their futures but died before he could, and his penny-pinching heir, a distant cousin, has refused to support them. Alex and her sister cook up a scheme to make things right.Peregrine Sullivan is one of three destitute brothers whose wealthy, debauched uncle has decided to avenge some grievances against his family by forcing his three heirs to marry unsuitable wom [...]


    8. I really disliked this book and skipped many pages as the two main characters thought over the same tired dilemma over and over again. I liked the first two in the series but this one did not bring about the conclusions I feel an author should leave you with. You are left wondering about the sister in poor health (I thought she would hook up with Marcus ), about the reason her mother was back in London, and how her father died so suddenly. After all that, you are left with an epilogue that does [...]


    9. You know, I liked the first 2 of the 'Blackwater Brides' series but in spite of an interesting premise i just could not get into this one. I didn't like how the heroine was thieving from her cousin, and being uppity and superior about it. Sure she had motivation, but it ended up lessening her in my romance fiction readin' eyes. I kept thinking, 'Austen would have never approved' but then that means I myself am being uppity and superior in opposition. I ended up skipping 1/3 of the book and readi [...]


    10. Malas ku ingaukan abiskan membaca buku ani. Separuh pun payah-payah. Dah la lelakinya penyibuk kan mati. Macam si banar tau semua pasal perempuan atu. Mun aku perempuan atu bah, bukan lagi ku tampar. Ku teriaki terajang tia kali eh. Kenapa tah ia kan sibuk-sibuk mau tau hal orang and made it his? Perempuan ani pun satu jua bodohnya. Luan desperate kali kan belaki, diterimanya saja tia lelaki gatal penyibuk. Atu kan kononnya ia ni have a mind of her own. Strong kononnya. My ass. More like lelaki [...]


    11. Fun, overall well-written for the genre. Generally speaking, I like the book, but I really wanted to like it a lot more. It had all the elements there, but it didn't come together with the POW that a good smut book has. I finished it quickly because I was on a camping trip and it was a pleasant way to pass the time a the beach. If I had been at home, it probably would have been one of those books I pick up every night before bed and read a chapter or two. Definitely not one of those can't-put-it [...]


    12. Po ostatných dvoch častiach série o Blackwaterovských nevestách som si už začínala myslieť, že Jane nám chradne a na staré kolená stráca predstavivosť. Našťastie celú sériu zachraňuje posledná časť o Peregrinovi. Tu vidieť, že autorku fantázia neopustila, a dokazuje, že po toľkých románoch, čo má za sebou, ešte vie napísať pútavý kúsok.Zvyšok recenzie nájdete tu: kokinakniznica/201


    13. I read the other two books as well. I agree that this series in general took strong women and "allowed" them to be "rescued" by the hero. Not in keeping with today's standards, but in keeping with the historical aspect? Perhaps thats OK. No real sense of urgency in the book and gee we never find out about the mother & sister. Questionable if I'll read others if the series expands.


    14. 3 stars might be generous here. The story was rather predictable and drawn out. The professions of love came out of nowhere and weren't really earned. They were still getting to know each other. Not to mention, they didn't finish with the dowager lady Douglas. She definitely had an ending even if it wasn't written in this book.



    15. I liked the premise of this series and this may have been my favorite of the three but frankly it was too long and I just wanted it to end. Sorry. I will definitely try other books by Jane Feather I just don't think this one was for me.


    16. Only my opinionFinished the last of the series. Kudos to the author. She had three different plots, three different men and three different women all well portrayed.


    17. So glad to find a new to me author that I love! Jane Feather is an exquisite writer and I will be searching for the rest of this series and her other books. One can learn from the vocabulary in this book. I have a list of new words to learn the meaning of, lol!


    18. Jane Feather is a bestselling historical romance author. An Unsuitable Bride is her final offering in The Blackwater Brides series. The premise for the series is a roguish uncle who holds the family fortunes declares all three of his nephews must marry unsuitable woman to inherit. This stems from the family being so puritanical they refuse to accept the uncle’s love match because she was unsuitable. The Blackwaters may be very proper, but they are horrible with money. Enter the unsuitable brid [...]



    19. Alexandra Douglas is a very smart young woman. After finding out that both she and her invalid sister will be denied their inheritance, she concocts a daring and dangerous scheme that will correct the situation. She goes, in disguise, to take the money back from the cousin that refused to give it to her when her father died. Alexandra Douglas is also a very stupid young woman, putting herself at great risk in a scheme that could ruin her at best, and find her at the wrong end of a hangman's noos [...]


    20. I didn't really enjoy this one. It was a bit of a yawner, and I didn't like the heroine at all--horribly stubborn. Third in Blackwater Brides series. In order for Sir Arthur Douglas to receive a divorce from his adulterous wife, he had to relegate his daughters' status as his rightful heirs. Upon his death, Lady Alexandra Douglas and her sister were left out of their father's will and were now considered his bastard children, legally taking away any rights they might have to keep their family ho [...]


    21. Alexandra Douglas has just learned the news of her father’s death, but there are even worse things to come. The lawyer gives her the unfortunate news that since her father divorced her mother, he declared her and her invalid sister, bastards. All of his fortune has been left to his current wife. Knowing she needs the money to pay for her sister’s care, Alexandra devises a plan to gain back her portion of the money. Peregrine is in town visiting an old friend, when he stumbles upon the old la [...]


    22. Typical of a Jane Feather book, this read was excellent.Beautiful Alexandra Douglas disguises herself as a aging, misshappen spinster while trying to retrieve her and her sister's inheritance. When her father divorced her mother, the daughters were delegitimatized and he just never got around to specifically changing his will so each daughter inherited the 10,000 pounds he intended for them. A greedy and selfish cousin refuses to right the wrong and gives them only 50 pounds which is not enough [...]


    23. Alexandra Douglas and her sister, Sylvia, who is an invalid have been left penniless after the death of their father. The home she has known and that should be rightly hers has been passed down to her greedy cousin. A very intelligent girl, Alexandra chooses to dress herself as an old lady and infiltrate her old home under the name of Alexandra Hathaway to work as a librarian cataloguing the very extensive family library. In addition, she is advising her cousin (who does not recognize her) on ho [...]


    24. It didn't take long for me to realize that I began with Book Three of a trilogy. It took even less time for me to care that I would be reading these books out of order. Alexandra Douglas is a damsel in distress and a damsel in disguise. Her father's divorce of her mother resulted in his two daughters being deemed illegitimate. Mom had run off to Italy with a count and Dad wanted to remarry in the hope of siring an heir. Alexandra was sent to St. Catherine's Seminary for young ladies and her youn [...]


    25. I love good fiction and romance novels are this guilty little pleasure for me. I read both of the books in the series some time ago and was driven to finish off the series when I found this one in the library. Although I like Jane Feather's historical romance and her penchant for creating characters to fall in love with, I was annoyed by Perry time and again as he assumed responsibility of a woman who was determined to be independent and figure out her life on her own. While the draw of historic [...]


    26. I like Julia Quinn and Eloisa James, but I'm read most of their stuff, so I scanned around the used book store for another author to try and found Jane Feather. I ended up getting the third in a series by accident. How hard is that to make clear? I mean, really. Anyway, this one started out pretty good. Somewhere around the middle, it felt like it was just plodding along. We all knew exactly what was going to happen, especially since Alex kept taking more and more risks. I didn't quite understan [...]


    27. I received this book free through First Reads giveaway.Since I hadn't read the first two books in this series, I wasn't sure what to expect from this story based on the description. I like romances set in this time period and was hoping it wouldn't be hard for me to read the final book in a series without having read the previous books.Overall, I really the story. I liked that Alexandra was determined to see she and her sister were given what their father, selfishly or absentmindedly forgot to [...]


    28. I received the book for free through First Reads. I wanted to like the main characters in this book, but it's difficult. It's just too boring. I've been pushing through in the hopes that once Alex & Peregrine get to spend some one-on-one time together the dialogue or something will help this book out, but to no avail. Peregrine knows basically nothing about Alex. In fact, the only thing he really knows is that she's lying about everything. And yet he confesses his love for her? Please. I'm [...]
