Pick of the Week: May 2, 2012

I came across Sheri Cobb South’s The Weaver Takes a Wife in the list of Top 100 Romances by DearAuthor.com and I am so glad I did!  Ethan Brundy, a very successful self-made businessman, falls in love with Lady Helen Radney at first sight.  Helen thinks Ethan is beneath her notice – she is a member of the nobility and doesn’t mix with people in trade.  The financial situation of her family is such, however, that she is persuaded to marry him though she explicitly informs him she is doing it for one reason only: his fortune.  Ethan Brundy just may be my favorite romance novel hero of all time.  He is wonderfully drawn and painfully dear.  Ethan is confident, smart, kind, patient, full of integrity and exceptionally sweet.  I felt a tug on my heartstrings while reading every single page of this novel – it is wonderfully romantic and an absolute must-read as far as I am concerned.


  1. Okay, so I’ll admit it: I was googling my own name, and came across your review of The Weaver Takes a Wife. Thank you so much for your kind words–they made my day! It’s always gratifying to learn that readers enjoy my work, and especially so where this book is concerned. You see, I had to publish this book myself because no New York publishing house would touch it. One editor even told me point blank, “No woman could possibly fall in love with a man like that unless he was devastatingly handsome.” I’m genuinely touched to know that not only did Lady Helen fall in love with Mr. Brundy, but apparently many readers have, as well.

    • Thank you so much for your comment. I can’t believe no one would publish The Weaver Takes a Wife – that strikes me as totally insane!!! Ethan is so wonderful – the idea that anyone could miss that is just crazy.

      I’m so glad you published it yourself. I truly enjoyed every page of your marvelous novel.

      XOXO – Evelyn
