Item description for Gallant Bride (Brides of Montclair, Book 6) by Jane Peart...
Overview Blythe gazed into his eyes. It seemed as if she were looking into his very soul. Could she read genuine repentance there . . . or just regret that he had brought shame to himself, disgraced his family? Suddenly, she knew. This was the real Malcolm -- before the War, before Rose died, before his life became a wasteland. She saw the Malcolm who remained uncorrupted -- gentle, intelligent, gallant before tragedy and loss took their bitter toll. Could she help reclaim that man -- whole, healthy, with renewed vigor and pride in himself and his heritage? Hope stirred in Blythe's heart. Yes! Yes, with God's help, she could. In 1870, Blythe Dorman, the high-spirited daughter of a prosperous Western rancher, falls hopelessly in love with a mysterious stranger -- Malcolm Montrose, a man scarred with tragedy and defeat. A Virginian who has come to California gold fields in the hope of recouping his family fortune, Malcolm again meets with misfortune and disappointment. As part of a secret bargain made with her dying father, Malcolm takes Blythe as his bride back to his Virginian home, where instead of the happiness she anticipated, Blythe finds only disillusionment and loneliness. The unselfish commitment and undiscouragable love that Blythe expends in her gallant struggles to heal a star-crossed marriage frame the poignant plot of Gallant Bride.
Publishers Description Book 6 in the Brides of Montclair historical romance series tells the tale of Blythe Dorman's struggle to reach the brooding Malcolm Montrose.

Reviews - What do customers think about Gallant Bride (Brides of Montclair, Book 6)?
Gallant Bride Jul 11, 2005
This story is one filled with tragedy. I could hardly bare to stand reading a book filled with such heartache. Malcolm had gone from a courageous and intelligent young man in Yankee Bride/Rebel Bride to a sensless and withering gambler. My heart ached for young Blythe. I hoped that she would gain some common sense. Time warp.
What A Sad Read! Dec 19, 2004
In the tradition of its predecessor, Gallant Bride is a tear-jerker to be sure. Poor Malcolm loses Montclair in a card game and dies an alcoholic with his late wife Rose Montrose's name on his lips. He never unites with his son Jonathan, and Blythe is left abandoned, carrying his child. Her only hope is that in the next book she will unite with Rod Cameron--the man she carried a torch for in this book while she was still Malcom's bride!
