Author Lynn Winchester’s novel, The Rogue’s Bride, takes the reader back to the west and the town of Dry Bayou. Aimee Prentice, on the run from her life in Alabama, comes to Dry Bayou as a mail-order bride. Gaston Mosier, harboring a deep dark mistake from his youth, decided he would send for a mail-order bride and to a small degree get on with his life. He wanted a bride who would be quite, biddable, unassuming, and have his children; everything Aimee is not. Upon meeting, Gaston appears cold and mean; Aimee gives the impression dull-wittiness, as well as, a fire cracker with a short fuse. But evil is also lurking in Dry Bayou. Is it waiting for Aimee?
Can these two come to term with their past, and forge a lasting relationship? Gaston needs forgiveness, if only to himself and Aimee need protection; will the misunderstandings, misconceptions, and secrets continue to color everything they do? My reviews for romance novel, The Rogues Bride, follows.
CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, DEVELOPMENT:
Author Lynn Winchester out did herself with the characters of Gaston and Aimee. Gaston, as a lot of us do, carries guilt, insecurities, and holds his feelings close to chest. Winchester skillfully portrayed how we crave redemption and happiness. Readers receive an accurate picture of life gone wrong because of holding on to old wounds and guilt. Winchester opened up and developed her characters skillfully. The reader will love seeing and hearing from the returning characters from earlier books. As a result, the continuing characters invest the reader in the story-line, town, and people; I felt I had returned home to a town I knew and loved.
With a plot which grabs the reader immediately, Winchester wove all the plot threads together to form a first class western romance novel filled with emotion, mystery, and secrets. With steady and smooth pacing, the story-line never lagged or bogged down. Also, Aimee’s penance for naming flowers when stressed added a little humor to the story; as did the back and forth between Aimee and Gaston. Watching Gaston’s growing awareness of what he needs in his life was wonderful. I loved the epilogue and look forward with impatience for the next book in this series featuring Jean-Luc.
Finally, in concluding my reviews for romance novel, The Rogue’s Bride, I found an intriguing story-line filled with guilt, misconceptions, villains, redemption, and romance. Although a standalone book, you enjoyment of the series enhances by reading the full series.
