Author Info
Jane Feather
Jane Feather is the best-selling author of dozens of historical romances, most featuring strong and iconoclastic heroines. "I've always enjoyed creating women characters who stand out against the conventional lives expected of them in any particular historical period," she told one interviewer. Citing Queen Elizabeth I of England and Empress Catherine of Russia, she asserted, "Throughout history there are always real-life examples of strong, dynamic, and unconventional women to be found." The author was born Jane Robotham in Cairo, Egypt, where her parents were stationed with the diplomatic corps. They returned to England when Jane was three, and she enjoyed what she has described as a traditional British childhood. Her primary education stressed literature and history, and among her favorite authors were Jane Austen and Daphne Du Maurier. She earned a master's degree from the University of Oxford not in those subjects, however, but in the very practical field of applied social science. In 1978 she moved with her husband and three young children to the U.S., and she initially practiced clinical social work in various urban areas of New Jersey. The family ultimately settled in the Washington, D.C. area, and, tired of writing case studies and bureaucratic reports, Feather decided that the time was right to combine her love of history and literature by penning a historical romance. Her first, LOVE'S CHARADE, was published in 1986, and she has since developed an impressively large number of fans, who are particularly enthusiastic about her Regency romances. In 2009 her espionage-tinged novel A HUSBAND'S WICKED WAYS garnered the Romance Writers of America's RITA Award as best Regency title of the year.
From the Publisher
Annotation Set against Oliver Cromwell's revolt against the English monarchy, THE ACCIDENTAL BRIDE is the second book in Jane Feather's passionate "Brides" trilogy. When shy, bookish Lady Phoebe Carlton is forced by tradition to marry her sister's widower, Lord Cato Granville, she finds herself suddenly blinded by love. As her brother-in-law, Cato had always seemed dull and intimidating. Now, however, just as she is about to make her marriage vows, Phoebe yearns for Cato's affection. But as the bugle sounds on the battle field, Phoebe learns that Brian, Cato's stepson and supporter of the monarchy, is out to assassinate Cato, a key officer in Cromwell's army. Determined, Phoebe declares a revolution of her own and sets out to not only seduce her love, but save him as well.
Editors Note In Feather's "Bride" trilogy, three unconventional women take a vow never to marry, only to find themselves overtaken by destiny. The "accidental" bride is Phoebe, the awkward one, who stumbles into romance, adventure, and passion when she falls under the spell of the intimidating--and very sexy--widower of her older sister.
