    1. Deliciously angsty read. Loved that about it. The characters though Captain Falwey is pretty much an ass to the heroine from the start. Sure he's got his insecurities and his jealousies, but they make him treat her like absolute shit. And she takes it and forgives him nearly every time because she's supposedly in love with him, even though she doesn't really know him. And by the time she finally gets some backbone and has had enough of it, I felt that he'd just done too much to be forgiven witho [...]

    2. Here we find a character from the previous book, Robert, and he is just as emotionally stilted as before. He is harsh, cruel and angry, not the perfect hero most romance books betray. But his new bride loves him, has loved him despite his physical imperfections. His damage, not to his body, but to his mind, makes him almost incapable of seeing himself as begin worthy of her love, and he starts to plot all kinds of reasons why she sticks around.I love the confusion, the uncertainity, and the lack [...]

    3. from my text review fileCaptain Fawley's Innocent Bride: Too traumatic (that's what I remember). Turned a sweet character from other books into a jerk (or the other way around).

    4. not a romance. Hero offensive and mean to heroine. All the misunderstanding and miscommunication made for a very frustrating read. Disappointed because I read other books by this author and they weren't this bad.

    5. I enjoyed this book although the hero, Captain Robert Fawley is a very dark tortured soul,Disfigured in mind and body and unable to believe that any woman could love or desire him.The heroine, Miss Deborah Gillies, loved him on sight and was not the least bit put off by his injured body.They enter into a marriage of convenience, he to gain an inheritance, she because she loves him (although this is not apparent to him in the beginning).I found myself disliking him and pitying him in equal amount [...]

    6. This is the first book from Annie Burrows that I've read, and I think I quite enjoyed it, for the most part. Ms Burrows does have a way with word. However I didn't like the lead characters all that much. Both hero and heroine in this book were very insecure, Captain Fawley with his scarred face and body and disability, and Deborah with her supposed to plain face and shy nature. Its rather frustrating read their misunderstanding. Also, I think Ms Burrows a bit inconsistent with her characters, I [...]

    7. this story was a lesson in non-communication. they held almost everything within and assumed so much but rarely actually communicated anything. it was sort of heart-breraking. and the ending a bit abrupt. maybe it was more the end of the sad and hurtful part of their lifes and the begining of a happy one.

    8. Free kindle download. I've had this in my TBR pile for a while after downloading it free on my kindle (now expired limited promotion). Very promising first 30 pages or so but nothing but down hill from thered not in a smooth ski run way but in a trapped in a massive avalanche way. Almost a DNF but managed to plod through.

    9. I liked this. I really did. It was good paced and both characters were likeable and you could understand their point of views and how they were treating each other with the results. It was a quick read and well worth it. Annie Burrows is a very good writer. Can't wait to read more of hers.

    10. Good read. The scarred hero is a little fixated on insisting a particular beauty dance with him, and doesn't notice the shy, not-so-beautiful heroine thinks he's wonderful. It's a sweet, enjoyable story with a good dose of angst.

    11. first published in paperback in the UK - now for the first time Captain Fawley's Innocent Bride is available in the US as an ebook.

    12. NoI gave this book one star because I do not understand how the Heroine fell in love with the hero I mean it was just no romance he basically insulted her throughout the book

    13. The Captain was an utter beast & that had nothing to do with his scars. I'm not sure how Deborah got over his treatment of her.
