Bride of the Wind by Heather Graham is a fantastic romantic read. Graham knows how to draw the reader in by starting her novels with a prologue that immediately captures the readers. Her prologues are different in the sense that they give you a sneak peek of what is about to happen in the book, not something that happened in the past but something that is going to happen in the future. Then she separates the book into two parts: the first takes place before what happens in the prologue and the second takes place during and after what happens in the prologue. I personally really like this feature of her writing. Starting with the prologue, Lady Rose Woodbine is on a ship when they are suddenly attacked by the fearsome pirate, the Dragonslayer. She is thrust into the captain's room while they try to defeat the attacker. Rose is surprised when the Dragonslayer bursts into the room with his menacing eye patch and sword. When she tries to defend herself she discovers herself face-to-face with her husband, Lord Pierce DeForte, who is suspected of murder back in England and she thought was dead. Rose does battle with her emotions of both loving and hating her husband, who is actually the Dragonslayer. The reader is left wanting to know why her husband claims to hate her and wants revenge on her. What went wrong in their marriage? Who is he suspected of murdering? The rest of the novel takes the reader on the wild ride of their relationship with many twists and turns. Will Pierce get his revenge? Will they be able to work things out? If you like historic romances, I would highly recommend this book. Graham is a fantastic writer that always knows how to please her readers and leaves them wanting the book to never end.
