  • “You came.” It was barely more than a whisper, and God help him, he couldn’t read anything in it, couldn’t tell if it was shock or disbelief or condemnation or something else that flavored her voice, and ultimately the only reply he could make was the simple truth, a promise as much as an assertion.“Always,” he said. “I’ll always come for you.”Ginesse Braxton, twenty-one and the eldest child and only daughter of Harry and Desdamona Braxton is bound for Egypt aboard the Lydonia.

  • ★★★★½ The audiobook was very well narrated by Justine Eyre; I’ll be looking for more with her reading. I totally loved this second in the Braxton series featuring headstrong heroine, Genisse Braxton, oldest child to Harry & Diz, and dangerous expatriate, Jim Owen. I love a good “road trip” as well as a good “masquerade” – so this was a “two-fer” – with tons of fun and action to boot. I adored that Jim found Genisse magnetically attractive when others didn’t; some [...]


  • 3.5 stars rounded up to 4 starsIt's Connie Brockway, there's a tall, blond & handsome hero, an interesting heroine, a decent love story, some excellent dialogue and a slew of first rate secondary characters. You're going to like it and here's why (and after that, why you might not love it).Firstly, both Jim and Ginesse are both funny and "real" - they've got faults and bits of bruised soul that emerge slowly and show us why they make the decisions they do. The basic plot line (set in Cairo i [...]


  • I borrowed this from the Kindle Lending Library and I'm glad I did. Very cute story. It takes place in Egypt around the turn of the 19th to the 20th century.I might give a more in depth review, but I'll just say for now that I was definitely fully engaged in it by about one third through. Action, adventure, romance, humor. Really nice effort by Brockway. Note: This is #2 in a series. I have not read the first installment, but I will.


  • 3.5/3.75 starsish. I was so excited to read this oneI really enjoyed As You Desire, and I was hoping that this would be as good if not better. This was honestly not a bad book- it really wasn't- and if I hadn't already read AYD, I probably would have thought this was better. But I had read AYD, and unfortunately, this wasn't as good for me. It has lots of elements that should come together for a big win for me- road trip, Egyptology, a sassy female MC, a rugged and loveable male MC- but somehow [...]


  • Ginesse Braxton is an original. Intelligent with an impish penchant for getting into trouble, she had been banished long ago to an English boarding school education- for her own safety- by parents whose reputations in Egyptian Archaeology are larger than life. Still she’s determined to make her own way- and prove to everyone she’s more than her name AND her trouble making standing!Sure that she’s discovered the location of a lost city, when the opportunity to search for it suddenly appears [...]


  • *Actual rating: 3.5 stars*Set in the early 1900s, this novel is about Ginny Braxton, an outspoken, unconventional and extremely accident prone young woman who wants to prove herself worthy of her illustrious family of Egyptologists by finding a lost city buried in the sands of the Egyptian desert. The only way she can think of to get there is by pretending to be another woman, Mildred Whimpelhall, who is supposed to be escorted to her fiance at a remote garrison. The man who has been assigned to [...]


  • 5 mega awesome stars for The Other Guy's Bride!WARNING: Do not attempt to pick this up when you're having your PMS. Because after finishing this, you'll likely to wallow in self-pity and heartache - wondering why you haven't found your own Jim Owen, or Will Herondale, or Mr Darcy. The Other Guy's Bride is the kind of book that makes you wish you're in love."I want to fall in love."Ginesse BraxtonGinny just wants to prove that she is as brilliant as her parents, her grandfather, her brothers. And [...]


  • Along with As You Desire and My Dearest Enemy this book is going into my top ten all time favorite books.Connie Brockway sure does know how to write my favorite type of hero and heroine. Jim is a loner with a heartbreaking past, who once he meets Ginny, will do anything for her. Mostly he saves her life. A lot. The problem is, he thinks she is Mildred who is engaged to the man that sent him out to bring her to him.Ginny is trying to make a place for herself in her famous family. She is like a wh [...]


  • I enjoyed the adventure and fun that was throughout most of this book ! It was a quick read ! There were parts towards the end ( all the misunderstanding and lack of communication ) that I could of lived without , but all in all a good book ! The whole Indiana Jones type guy (adventure) is always fun to read! I love archeologist themed books (digging for lost civilizations)!


  • I really enjoyed this! The Other Guy's Bride is a rocking road romance. Jim and Ginesse spark off of each other from the get go and the romantic adventure begins. Add in Brockway's sense of fun and her deft touch with clever dialogue and it's a winner. Welcome back, Connie Brockway.


  • 4+ stars. Another Guy’s Bride is a light, humorous, historical road-trip romance romp through Egypt. I loved the high adventure, mayhem, and colorful characters. Overall, a fun read!


  • Actually 3.5 stars.I wish I could be unbiased and judge this novel solely on its own merits, but unfortunately I read As You Desire too recently for that to be possible. I can't help comparing The Other Guy's Bride to its predecessor, and find it wanting.On the plus side, I prefer the sharply intelligent and independent Ginesse to her plucky but somewhat ditzy mother, Desdemona. Unfortunately, Jim Owens is a poor man's Harry Braxton. I wanted to fall madly in love with Jim the way I did with Har [...]


  • originally posted at longandshortreviewsspShe’ll do anything to get to the lost city of Zerzura. She’ll even pretend she’s the fiancé of an officer stationed across the desert near the city. So what if she has to travel with a rogue to get there?This is a smashing adventure that I greatly enjoyed reading. The author’s main male character, Jim Owens, has lost in love and fortune and wants nothing more than to be declared “dead” so he can get on with a new life. He only agrees to tran [...]


  • I really enjoyed this one, particularly after a bit of a drought of romance in my reading of late (not intentional, just happened that way). I read As You Desire some time ago, and loved the premise and the setting (there's something about Egypt in the late Victorian era and pre-WW2 which I just find captivating), but found there were too many secondary characters, which detracted somewhat from the plot and the romance. This one is much more concentrated on the hero and heroine, and, in my opini [...]


  • It's not much of a secret that As You Desire is one of my very favorite romances. So there wasn't much hope that I would like this 'sequel', or whatever you want to call it, nearly as much. The comparison is inevitable. But, there were a few great scenes, and lots of that trademark CB wit. And I loved her endnote and photos!It just seemed a bit like it was going over the same terrain, and wasn't quite as fun. Jim's angst didn't really seem warranted - almost created to provide the epilogue. Thei [...]


  • You can also read this review at Reflections on Reading RomanceI’m a bit embarrassed to admit this, but I’d never read any of Ms. Brockway’s books before I won this copy of The Other Guy’s Bride through the First Reads program. I’m guessing that means my romance reader membership card will be revoked or at the very least suspended, because she is quite the powerhouse! So I was really excited to read this book, first, because I’d heard so many good things about Ms. Brockway’s writi [...]


  • For many years---fourteen to be exact---Connie Brockway fans have been begging for a sequel to As You Desire, the story of Harry and Dizzy. Well, fans, the time has come, and it was worth the wait!Ginesse "Ginny" Braxton is traveling from England to Egypt, a country she knows like the back of her hand thanks to being the daughter of famous Egyptologist, Harry Braxton. But Ginesse longs to make a name for herself, not just ride on the coattails of her famous family. She also wants to prove she's [...]


  • The review that follows is a partial review. To read the full text, please visit:tbqspersonalbookpalacespo~*~*~When mistaken identities, secret lives, and an exotic locale like Egypt are thrown together, the outcome can only be one thing—a rocky roller-coaster ride that provides plenty of entertainment! Ginesse (Ginny) Braxton has been judged by her name for years. As the only daughter of the infamous Harry and Dizzy Braxton, the world expects her to be much like them—a successful Egyptologi [...]


  • I could tell you to read this book for the fun adventure (think Indiana Jonesish or I guess nowadays people would think Nate Drake), Connie Brockway writing (effortlessly emotionally true, engaging, and always moving), or the characters (you’ll smile while weeping at how utterly crystal clear the hero sees the heroine’s authentic nature and is not afraid of it ;). However, the main reason you should read this book is for Chapter thirty-six. My god…apter thirty-six. I didn’t realize how a [...]


  • What a wonderful historical romance! I loved the character of Ginesse. She is a trouble magnet, outspoken, and a closet penny novelist. She is also the daughter of two famous archaeologists and has six younger brothers. She is just returning to Egypt after spending some years in an English finishing school and attending university. She believes that she has discovered the location of a long-lost, ancient city and hopes finding it will make her feel worthy of her distinguished family. She knows t [...]


  • Ginesse Braxton, daughter of noted Egyptologists and archaeologists Harry and Dizzy Braxton, is on her way back to Egypt when she stumbles on a way to Make Her Name. Jim Owens, whose hair is full of secrets, has been tasked with bringing a fiancee across the desert. UST, ABANDONMENT, FIASCOS, ETC, and MANY MANY failed proposals later: HEA!!Maybe it's because I recently watched The Mummy, the quasi-fantastical story about a prim librarian riding into the desert for Glory and Honor. Maybe it's bec [...]


  • I love romance books. You always know what you are going to get; the delicious internal struggles of an awkward woman and rugged man who fight and doubt their burning passions for one another until they both snap and rip each other's clothes off. Throw in a dash of plot, a pinch of insecurity, a cup of sexual tension and stir in meddling families, physical danger and, of course, boners and you've got yourself a romance. The Other Guy's Bride had all of the above romance-book qualities with a his [...]


  • When I learned that was starting their own publishing company, Montlake Publishing, and their debut novel was going to be from Connie Brockway, I was intrigued. And then I was asked to review The Other Guy's Bride and I was honored to be asked.What really stood out to me is the setting for this book. It mostly takes place in 1905 Egypt. What a unique setting. And Ms. Brockway takes total advantage of it. Ginesse and Jim are trekking across the dessert, encounter native tribes and exploring anci [...]


  • The Other Guy's Bride was an absolute delight and I am so glad that I picked it up. I was intrigued by the Egyptian setting, so I ended up getting it inter-library loaned, since my library didn't have a copy. It was worth the effort. This also happened to be my first time reading Connie Brockway, and as a huge historical romance fan, I have to wonder why? This was excellent!Ginesse Braxton is the daughter of very famous parents in the archeological world, and I suppose this world is very small i [...]


  • They’ll caution you that wanting a thing is often much better than having it.They’ll tell you that you can't go home again.They’ll say that sequel is never as good as the original. I'm here to tell you this: They haven't read THE OTHER GUY’S BRIDE by Connie Brockway. So they're feeling unlucky and a bit left out. The mysterious ‘They’ mean well but gift them a copy so they can see what they’ve been missing. I know there are a lot you out there like me, who wanted more after reading [...]


  • I inhaled this book. Started reading in the library as soon as I picked it up (while my kids played with something), went back to reading while my kids showered, and then continued reading after the kids were tucked into bed. I stayed up until 3am to finish it. (Good thing it was a Saturday!) Absolutely delicious and perfect and exactly what I wanted. Jim Owens, where have you been all my life???? Now, I have to say, I find infidelity VERY unappealing, it's not the least bit romantic, so when I [...]


  • I got this book at the Lending Library from . I wasn't really expecting it to be amazing or anything (the cover IS a bit froo froo, but not one of those bodice rippers), but I was hoping for a passable romance; light, quick read, etc. It was way better then I thought it would be! Quite a nice surprise really and funnier then expected (I laughed out loud more then once, and I may have even snorted). I love a romance with humor! :) There were some really romantic parts too (although not until the [...]


  • Here's my review posted to MADreads: madisonpubliclibrary/mConnie Brockway is a well-known name in romance (she's won the RWA's Rita award twice) but she hasn't been on the radar much in the last few years. That all changed when she announced that she was going to go digital and write the books readers have been asking for (chief amongst them sequels to As You Desire and All Through the Night). Her initial announcement, that she was going to go ebook only, drew cheers and some boos however. The [...]


  • The Other Guy's Bride is the first book published by Montlake, an imprint of . Needless to say, I didn't know what to expect when I started reading this book. Let me say that I was pleasantly surprised. The Other Guy's Bride is a lovely, romantic book where the characters and emotions were not surface-level but fully fleshed out and well-developed.Jim and Ginny do not rush into romance. They bicker, butt heads and overall annoy each other. But as they traverse across the desert, they continue to [...]
