The Bride and the Brute by Laurel O'Donnell Book Summary

Jayce Cullen has been fighting her fear of thunder and lightning ever since she was a child, but nothing could have prepared her for the fury of her new husband. Feeling deceived and betrayed into a loveless marriage, Lord Reese Harrington wants nothing to do with his new wife. Trapped in a marriage with no escape, the beautiful young bride must battle the demons of her husband's past and hope that she can weather the storm his brutish behavior unleashes.

This is a medieval romance novella.

From the Author:
Hello everyone. Please note that The Bride and the Brute is a romance novella, so it is much shorter than a full length novel. It was written that way on purpose. It is meant to be a "short and sweet" read, as someone has described it, that you can finish in one sitting. If you prefer full length novels, please consider some of my other romance novels. This eBook does contain excerpts and full chapter previews of those books. Thanks for reading!

Good read but not 305 pp. This is a good read but the actual story is only about 150 pages. The remaining 155 pages contain summaries, excerpts, and front covers of the author's other novels!

Romance. Wonderful novella! Just wish it was a full novel, didn't want the story to end.

The Bride and the Brute. Loved it. I could not put it down until I finished it.

The Romanticist Dream. This short story, had my emotions draw tight. The writer had me hung on every single incident that happened to the characters. I liked that is was a short and sweet kind of story, but I was truly disappointed with the ending. After reading the book and the way it was crafted I expected more out of the ending. Other than that you have me hooked

!!!. Very good book, however it would have been nice if it were longer.

I liked it. It was good but a bit too short and the ending kinda sucked

Does not make sense. It does not make sense on how Reese hates her guts and then out of nowhere at the end, loves her when he hated her through the whole book.The story made no sense at some moments and I found myself rolling my eyes at certain scenes. The ending sucked as well.

Good read. I really enjoyed this story but wish there would've been a bit more character development. I would've liked to have known them better. It ended a bit abruptly (story and lovers both climaxed a bit too quickly!) generally though, a really good read

The Bride and the Brute. Great.... But only too short .

Loved it. This was a great short story. I was caught up from the very first!

So good!!!. I absolutely loved this book!!! I was a little upset on how short it was but it was a great story and I wish there'd been more to it!! Highly recommend!!

Awesome. An Awesome book

The Bride and the Brute. This book was written with much love and passion, but only for the two main characters to once recognize how the circumstances surrounding their marriage was not typical for them. They fought each other tooth and toenail even dividing those around them. But when the truth was finally revealed, did they truly realize they were made for each other. LaMar

Uren11. Was a good book but short and I feel like the author could have finished it better, after putting the heroine to si much embarrassment.. could have taken it a step further by going back and have the brother truly apologize to her, to find out that the sister kidnaping was all a plot by her and so on. But it was a good read

The Bride and the Brute. Excellent short story. Was mislead by the number if pages, thinking it was a full length novel. Would have been fabulous if it were longer!

Romantic. This novella was soo sweet and I love how it was short cuz it was easy to read. It also wasn't too cheesy :)

Loved it!. It was great I couldn't put it down :D

Review. The book has a good storyline, but it abruptly ends. This could have been a great book. Also, Jayce is terrified of lightning. I idea that Reese would make love to her outside during a lightning rain storm is ridiculous and insulting to her.

The Bride and the Brute. Great book but too short. Could easily have ben built into a full length novel.

:). I love this book! I've had to have read it three times now:)

Okay?. While the story was great, for I enjoy works of this genre, do not be deceived by this author. There is a third of the amount of pages promised. Here I am, expecting to have a long night of reading ahead of me, and "The End" comes across the page instead. Good story, but disappointed clots my heart.

Couldn't stop reading. It was a great story; I just wish it was a bit longer.

Good read. Short and sweet. The story was a bit to short but I still liked it very much :) Good if you're looking for a quick fix ;)

Great book. The book had be in tears, outraged, my heart flattering & laughing. The Bride and the Brute is a great book!

Awesome. I couldn't put it down.

Okay. The actual story is really good, except for the end, which was really disappointing. There are more previews in this book than there are pages in the actual novella.

Too short!!!!. Finished way to quick, author leaves you wanting more, nice read, just give us a little more ;)

Too short.. I don’t understand how this is such a short story, the author could have written so much more... I was under the impression the book would be more than 500 pages than under 150 pages. It was pointless to include other excerpts. Besides that this short story was good.

. Very well written for a short story. I started reading it and didn't stop until I finished. I love books written in this time period!!!

The Bride and the Brute. Fun to read, even though the heroine is treated unfairly through no fault of her own. The persons causing the miscommunication are never held accountable, and still, I enjoyed the story.

Nice read. Too short tho

Great. I loved this book I felt everything she did happy sad anger heartbreak. The book is only like 200 and some pages and the rest is previews from other book from the author. But I would get it hands down it was great

Nice. End too fast and abrutly but is not bad

Wait what?!?. I never write reviews. Though it warns this book is a short story I wasn't expecting it to be that short! The book say 600 and some odd pages and really the story itself is 250 pages the other 400 pages are all chapter samples of other books. The end of the story was rushed! This story line was phenomenal it had great potential and it just stopped short! This book catches you right from the beginning and you really feel for the characters and the the last chapter is so rushed. Good story, ending isn't.

Interesting. Interesting but way too short author should explain more in the beginning

GreAt read!. I wish it was longer but it was a great story... Looking forward to her other books

:D. Very well written. Love the story line and I haven't been bored reading it. Love it!

Awesome!!😊. This book is so romantic! I loved it all the way through! Plus, it had a great storyline that kept me turning the pages. It is my new favorite rainy day book! I didn't want it to end! Wish it were longer.

Fantastic!. I loved this story! I hope the author considers doing a follow up of it so we can see how things play out afterwards with their love and the other issues they faced!

Medieval Mayhem. AISI (As I See It) Laurel O'Donnell's novella is well-worth a read! She paints word pictures that are captivating and clear. Would love to read more of her work!

Very good!. I enjoyed reading about time period. A nice read!

Loved. I loved the story. But I felt that it was very rushed.

Baaaad!,,,,,,. This is a ridiculous story. Week heroine and stupid man. I can not believe people rate this with more than one star!

Yuk. Really?! The short chapters are irritating and the short length of the book itself disappointing. The male protagonist suddenly braves the beast in the time frame of a week? Because he loves her? Please. It's a good start but it's lacking the in-between substance, much of it.m

Good. A light reading

Great !. It is a beautiful romance but short ..

Entertaining. Enjoyable read. Respectable characters. Well written.

Loved it!!!. Absolutely LOVED it!!!

Great. Loved it, really short.

LOVE this!. I wasn't sure what to expect when I began reading. Maybe I was expecting it to be embarrassing and cheesy, but it wasn't. I couldn't put this novella down! When I got to the last page, I was highly disappointed - I didn't want it to end! Well done :)

The bride and the brute. I was expecting a full length novel. Instead I got 137 pages of reasonable story followed by 200 Pages of advertising this writers other short stories which I could not be bothered to read. Disappointing and deceiving!

Disappointing. Could have been a good story. Described as short and sweet, although it is short, definitely not sweet. This is better described as a short story about an abusive relationship, Jayce should have been happy about the letter his brother showed to her. Also, too much time wasted with Reese whining about the same thing repeatedly, it felt like more than half the story was just the same thought repeated over and over again.

Lovely story. Can't put it down. Thought the ending will be disappointing but obviously I was wrong. Highly recommended.

Enjoyable but disappointing ending. At first i greatly enjoyed this book, and really liked the characters and their relationships, but then the ending seemed to come abruptly and out of nowhere, and seemed to be a bit rushed which was disappointing, but I enjoyed the majority of it.

Loved it!. I really enjoyed this book and the facts that it's free just tops it off. Great story line and characters but thought the ended could of been a little better. Other than that i seriously recommend it!

Perfect. Easily the best iBook to be found!!

Not enough. 150 pages to the actual book, over 200 pages of previews. Really? Who does that. Besides, the book needed more character development than just really wonderful blue eyes. Not impressed

Turned off. Turned off by all the previews, thought the free novellas were supposed to get the reader hooked on an author but there wasn't enough talent or development or storyline in this novella and too much selling, think the focus is in the wrong area

Beautiful!!!. This "short and sweet" story was sooo beautiful. I cant believe how many times it made me cry!!! It made me really feel for Jayce. Poor thing! Loved Dylan! Is there going to be a story for him too :) This could be good as a series!!!! It was a short story, but the author has warned that from the preview page. However, I do also agree that the story was a little too short. It felt like the ending was rushed. I would have loved to have read what would have happened when they got back and found out the real truth. (Don't want to say too much to spoil the ending). Other than that, this is for sure one of my favourite stories! Amazing and beautiful!!! Loved it!!! Thanks and regards to the author :)

Mercelle- I think.... Ok this book was pretty good but it left me feeling like there wasn't a great story development and character growth however it was heartfelt. But yes it's a Good quick read
