She’s kidnapped on the morning of her royal wedding—by her groom’s most dangerous enemy.
Treachery leads battle-hardened Highland lord Darach of Glenshiel to abduct an innocent: wealthy Lady Laurien d'Amboise, betrothed to the knave who betrayed Darach and his men. Stealing the delicate beauty from the steps of Chartres Cathedral on her wedding day, he vows to keep her safe—and untouched—for she is a hostage to be bartered for the freedom of his beloved Scotland.
But soon he discovers that his lovely captive has unexpected strength, fire—and plans of her own. From a besieged French castle to the untamed Scottish Highlands, Darach and Laurien are swept up in wild adventure, dangerous secrets... and forbidden love that puts their honor and their lives at risk.

His Stolen Bride
Great book. Love reading Shelly Thacker's stories.
This book was great! I could not put it down. Lots of twists and turns and great characters. Shelley Thacker never disappoints!
Favorite Book of 2015
I read a lot of romance -- historical, Regency and contemporary -- books and "His Stolen Bride" is that best of the year. I read books from Eloisa James, Jillian Hunter, Stephanie Laurens and Grace Calloway. Shelly Thacker is a talented writer and story teller. I highly recommend this book.
