No woman can resist the charms of Rowan de Montvieux. But the dashing rogue is in no hurry to marry—until his family dares him to find a bride…or risk losing his inheritance. So Rowan sets out on a Bride Quest, vowing to wed only The Heiress.<br><br>
But his journey is interrupted when a slave merchant offers to sell him a ragged peasant girl who carries herself like a queen. Intrigued and never imagining she is the sought-after Bronwyn of Ballyroyal, an heiress in disguise, Rowan buys her, offering her his protection if she will lead him to the bride he seeks.<br><br>
Never has he met a woman so proud, so beautiful, so defiant. He suspects she is no commoner and vows to uncover her secrets and melt her fiery resolve. But the perilous voyage to Ireland kindles passions that risk both their lives, as the slave girl who would not be mastered slowly takes possession of his wary heart.

From Publishers Weekly

Sep 06, 1999 – Delacroix's third historical novel in the Bride Quest series continues with the escapades of irresponsible Rowan De Montvieux. Rowan loves a challenge, especially when issued by his two brothers, and he can't resist when they dare him to seek and wed the richest heiress in Ireland. When he arrives at the London docks, en route to Ireland, he is approached by a man intent on selling him a slave girl named Ibernia. The autocratic air of the young slave leads him to believe that she comes from wealth, so he buys her. Ibernia tells Rowan that she knows the richest heiress in Ireland and promises to lead him to Broynwan of Ballyroyal if he will release her from bondage. Delacroix's subplots create much intrigue but at times can both confuse and impede the narrative. However, in the second half of the book the author successfully combines the storylines and kicks up the pace.

Customer Reviews

The Heiress

Third in the Bride Quest series, like the others can be read as a standalone story. This story started out with a bang, then settled in to be another great story. Rowan is headed to Ireland on a quest to wed an heiress and crosses paths with Bronwyn, a slave. He buys her, and his life is no longer his own. I enjoyed the banter between the two, as they each tried to trick and best each other in their verbal sparring. Each quickly figured out how to push the other’s buttons, which made for some fun twists in the plot. Speaking of the plot, Ms Delacroix has written another great one in this series. I received a complimentary copy of this book. This is my honest review.
