Review: Reclaiming His Wife by Madison Faye

reclaiming his wifeTitle: Reclaiming His Wife

Author: Madison Faye

Year of publication: Out today! I was kindly given a copy to read and review

The heroine: Family company heiress Juliana Cardellini Kane

The hero: Marine Russell Kane

The blurb: Five years ago, she was stolen from me. But now I’m back from the dead to reclaim what’s mine. Here comes the bride.
Again, and again, and again…

What a woman like Juliana ever saw in a dirty roughneck Marine like me I’ll never understand. But I’m a man who knows what he wants, and I wanted her. I stole her heart, made her my wife, and saw the rest of my life with her.

…And then, I died.

At least, that’s what the man who left me for dead told her while I sat in chains, forgotten in a Taliban prison for five damn years.

Five years in a pit in the desert does something to a man. It’s made me hardened, feral, and wild. It’s made me hungry for the one woman I ever wanted, and driven to the brink of madness to have her soft curves in my rough hands again. Five years in hell have made me ready to move heaven and earth to get my bride back in my arms.

My enemy tried to bury me and take what’s mine. Except, he didn’t dig deep enough. Because I just broke out of my prison, and now? Now I’m coming back to reclaim what’s mine. Five years ago, Juliana thought she lost me. A week ago, I came back from the dead. Tonight, I’m stealing her back.

‘Til death do us part? Oh, it’s going to take a lot more than that…

Standalone or series: Standalone

The review: Russell is a Marine who was betrayed by a man he should have been able to trust and left to rot in a hole in the ground for five years. Declared dead, he eventually overcomes his captors and manages to get home just in time to stop his beloved wife, Juliana, from marrying the very man who betrayed him.

He storms into the church and whisks away the bride, his wife, who’s believed him dead for the last five years. After a whole lot of very hot sex, he gets his revenge and his wife back.

This book was a departure from most of Madison’s others because there’s usually a twist in the story and it’s usually something to do with the heroine. In this novella, the hero was hiding a secret of sorts, but it’s revealed early on. There’s was also quite a bit of going back and forth in time, which you had to concentrate on so as not to get confused. But if you want smut? You got it. This might just be Madison’s smuttiest book yet! As always, an enjoyable read.
